Review: Bang by Lisa McMann

I really do like the story in these books. Honestly. But then I still have that little issue with how it is written. Ack. But I also love the writing, so it's a bit complicated for me. But for the most part I really enjoyed Bang so I'm giving it a four star. It was an exciting book. It's not perfect, but I really enjoyed reading it.

This book is also told from the point of view of Jules. Whom I still adore. She's pretty awesome, hih. And her family. Sigh. I loved getting to read more about Trey and Rowan. They are both amazing. Love them all so much. And their dad? Hating him more and more for each book. Ack. Worried about book three.

Then there is Sawyer. Who is now officially Jules's boyfriend. I still love him like crazy. Though I do think many of their scenes together are a bit cheesy and weird yet I loved every moment of them, hih. And Sawyer. Sigh. My heart breaks for him. His stupid family. Her stupid family. I do not approve! It better get resolved in book three. Sigh. Though my way of making it okay? Killing off his family, lol. But that's probably not happening :)

I don't have too much to say about Bang. Just that it is an amazing book. Yet too short. Ack. But at the same time I love that the books are short. I love that I don't have to wait forever for things to happen. That I don't have to worry for eternity, lol. But I still worry, I do. Because this is an exciting book. A little bit normal at times, and a lot of un-normal at different times. This book is different. And I love that about it. I love that we get to meet some new characters as well. Excited to read more about Ben.

Then there is the romance in this book. Sigh. There is more than there were in Crash. Which is good. The romance is sweet and hot and just all kinds of awesome. Though, yeah, a bit silly, hih. But I couldn't help but loving it even so. Because it do seem honest and real. And Sawyer and Jules are just too adorable together. And I cannot wait to read more about their romance. Sigh. I'm hoping it will be even more awesome in Gasp. So fingers crossed for that. <3 They are just so cute and adorable together.

We see more of the visions in this book. Okay, there was only one vision in book one. That played for Jules over and over again. And there is one in this book too. That Sawyer is seeing. And I found that very interesting to read about. Weird, yes, but also kind of awesome. I loved getting to know more about the vision and reading about them finally figuring things out about it. It was fun. And a bit creepy. I loved how it all ended. Though yeah. A bit awful. But I loved it even so. Excited for the next book.

I'm not saying more about Bang. Just that I thought it was a great book. Not perfect, but still amazing. I'm glad I finally started reading this series, hih. And I will be reading Gasp in a moment. <3 I cannot wait. Anyway. I do think you should all read Bang. Especially if you have already read Crash. Because it is an amazing sequel. It is short and fun and sweet and a bit sad too. And I just adore all the characters. Sigh. Jules and Sawyer. And Trey. Who is just too adorable. I'm excited to read more about him, lol.


  1. Really glad you're taking a shining to these books. I really hope you'll eventually love the last one. :)

  2. I commented on your review of Crash yesterday. I'm so glad to see someone else enjoying this series. Jules and Sawyer are just too cute. I love Trey with a passion. I agree that the books are too short, but it's good in a way because they ARE quick and easy to read.

  3. Glad to hear you enjoyed this one more than book one, that's how series are supposed to work, with each book being better than the previous one!
    Cannot wait to hear what you think of book 3!

  4. I haven't heard of this series, but I am completely intrigued by its premise. I love the whole visions aspect to this, and I am excited to see the whole story behind them. Plus, the characters sound great, especially Sawyer! ;p I'm so glad you enjoyed this, Carina! Wonderful review! :D
