Marked by P.C. Cast

Book One in House of Night Series

Goodreads Summary : The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed.  In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire -- that is, if she makes it through the Change.  Not all of those who are chosen do.  It's tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling.  She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx.  But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers.  When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampyre friends.

My Rating : 3/5 stars

My ReviewThe House of Night Series starts off with Zoey Redbird being marked and becoming a vampire. Since she was marked she must attend the school called the House of Night. This is a special school for all vampires. Zoey learns that she is not just a normal fledgling, the goddess Nyx granted her special powers which make her more powerful than even some of the students. In this book you follow Zoey on her adventures throughout the school, you see how shes adjusting to her new life, and how she chooses to deal with the queen b of the school.
I would definitely recommend this book to people who love Harry Potter, the books are very much alike, except instead of wizards there's vampires. 
This book was a very short read, I felt like it didn't have much detail. The author did not use a good choice of words, the way she was writing just didn't make sense, she was using swear words but the writing was fit for like 10 year olds. Usually i pick a quote to put at the beginning of my reviews, I pick it based on either amazing moments in the story, or just a beautiful sentence. I could not decide because there were no good quotes.
The character really made me mad. She's not very smart, yet she chooses to act like a stupid smart ass. I love to connect to the characters as much as i can because it makes the book easier to read. Me and Zoey have nothing in common, and she makes me angry. I will not be reading this book again.
