The Goddess Test - Aimee Carter I'm a huge fan of all kinds of mythologies, so when I came upon The Goddess Test, I knew I had to read it. Unfortunately, the book was quite disappointing.The characterisation was bad. Kate and company were incredibly dull, dense, and unreal. Kate says at the beginning, when she goes to the school, that she doesn't want to make any friends, just to be alone. All of a sudden, she gets a stalker-friend James and an enemie-but-then-became-best-friend Ava. Henry, the romantic interest, was as interesting as a paper bag. He just can't be Hades, god of the Underworld, being so boring and moody.Some scenes were just absurd and ridiculous, I had a headache for rolling my eyes so much.Apparently Greek gods are now Americans, love to hang around Central Park and have Christmas parties.The seven tests Kate has to pass are never exactly explained until the end, but when you have Henry yelling at Kate "You have to stop eating! It's Gluttony!", it's just all so obvious. I'd love to know why would gods care for the seven deadly sins.The big revelation at end was so shocking that made me yawn.The only good part of the story was Kate dealing with her mother's disease. I can relate to that.Overall, this book made me sleepy. I didn't care for any of the characters and just wanted the book to be over.It had good potential but got a terrible execution.ARC provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
