    If I had to describe Tiger s Curse in one word, that word would be embarrassing I m not joking Have you ever been in the company of one of those people who is not vindictive or mean, but is unintentionally racist in a way that makes you feel really uncomfortable Maybe they mimic a foreign accent and think they re being funny Or they make a joke and don t know the history well enough to know how not fucking funny it is This book is like one of those people.Let s start at the beginning of this cri [...]

    Seriously, GR I mean, SERIOUSLY You thought you could just delete my review and it would be gone forever I ll take your deletion and raise you one cached copy of my review and one middle finger My five year old nephew had to prepare a piece about himself for kindergarten last week It went something like this Hi, my name is Manoj I m five years old I like singing I am also a good dancer My favourite food is Maggi noodles What s shocking is that Colleen Houck s prose bears a startling resemblance [...]

    Tiger s Curse has to be one of the most embarrassingly incompetent books I have ever read When I first read it in February 2012, I railed against its poor quality and abominably ridiculous characters, but ultimately didn t include it in my end of year ranking of the worst books I d read In fact, I was even generous enough to give it half a star for some modicum of originality.I m now prepared to shave off that half a star and promise to kick my paradox self upside the head if I ever get the oppo [...]

    If you are looking for a good YA paranormal romance series, look no further SERIOUSLY You will read, re read, and then read some until your entire life, lives, breaths, screams, TIGER, and your family threatens to have you committed Just start collecting everything Tiger now, and save yourself some time Now that I ve got that out of the way, lets start with the review Appearance The first thing I noticed when I spotted this book was the detail in the cover I m not a shallow woman, but I do admi [...]

    Time for another one of my random life stories that distantly pertains to this review This book reminds me of a particularly unhappy day in my childhood.I was either five or six, and we d spent the entire day in Bush Gardens or Hershey Park or something I forget what place Anyway, I was a total roller coaster junkie back then and wanted to go on every roller coaster that the park security would allow me to The scarier the better.So finally, I found a roller coaster that suited my tastes I keep t [...]

    I m white Being white means I have a certain level of privilege that people of colour are not afforded I ve never had to experience racism, I ve never been slurred based on the colour of my skin and I don t have to live with the extreme social and economic gap that people of colour do in terms of employment, higher education, sexual assault, health issues, etc Sometimes when I m looking at an issue, it can be very easy for me to look over the experiences of others This isn t deliberate but it is [...]

  9. Kogiopsis says:
    Edit 9 27 2014 Retroactively reducing my ratings for these books because when I first read them I did not notice the racism cultural appropriation.Okay, I just cannot be bothered to write a long review for this book I can barely be bothered to write a review at all The writing was terrible and the pacing painful from beginning to end, but the characters weren t a total waste well, until Kelsey suddenly and inexplicably decided to be stupid and push Ren away You know, I was sort of enjoying watch [...]

  10. Ashley says:
    When I was nine years old, I wrote a story called The Two Trees, which in addition to being basically plagiarized from a number of sources most notably The Ordinary Princess, but also a smidge here and there from Aladdin the film and The Farthest Away Mountain , was obviously written by a nine year old Like, if you would have picked it up and read it completely out of context and then somebody asked you to list off three things that described it, the list would look something like this 1 Princes [...]

  13. Zuleeza says:
    This review is also available on my blog, QwertyI had a high hope A very high hope As high as Charlie Sheen on crack.Yup, you got the idea.I like how the overall concept based on an Indian myth HmpphhI just like stories from India in general I can watch Hindi movies without subtitles I kid you not.I like cats Tiger, leopard, cheetah, puma, they are ALL cats to me I ll risk my life just to pat their heads.Unfortunately, I had risk my sanity because this book has cats tigers.It wasn t plain bad Fa [...]

    WARNING This book has the ability to make you succumb to constant daydreams and irregular bouts of hopeless romanticism while reading So word of advice grab that pillow and head for your room, cause someone might think you ve lost it when they see you squealing around like an idiot haha oh my it so wrong to think that Alagan Dhiren would probably look like this or maybe this While I, on the other hand is looking like thisInitial reactionenlol Im swept all over okey, enough with my drooling I mea [...]

    I wanted to read this book because a fantasy, b tigers and c the COVER IS DOWNRIGHT GORGEOUS ShallowBookworm Several people warned me that it wasn t terrific buuuuut.I read it anyway I m not SORRY I read it But it really was a pudding of cliches and annoyances and DISTURBING ROMANCE and slowness Consider me wailing It s so gorgeous Omg That cover I am forever devastatedUFF THAT ANNOYED ME AN EXTRAORDINARY AMOUNT The narrator, Kelsey, is as interesting as a burnt potato She has noooooo personalit [...]

  16. Erica (daydreamer) says:
    NO No no no no Kelsey, go back, go back Oh my gosh, this book, this breathtaking, thrilling, romantic, utterly perfect book It swept me away in blissful awe The India setting, the mythical lure, the enchanting curse, the charmed aura of India s 300 year old prince I was completely captivated by the story, the characters, the setting, just, everything And the romance, oh so swoon So completely gush worthy and butterfly inducing and breathtaking This book is so original and creative A 300 year old [...]

  17. Adriana says:
    Prepare yourself This is going to be a long winded review.When I think of my experience with Tiger s Curse, I think traumatizing among many other words vying for the title, of course Reading this novel ignites a vicious hatred and an anger within me the likes of which I have not felt since I mistakenly read Fifty Shades of Grey I don t want to talk about it Not only is this book written appallingly and not only should it have never even been CONSIDERED for publication, but it is frightening that [...]

  18. RavenclawReadingRoom says:
    Trigger warnings Basically everything in Twilight is equally applicable here Except for the chewing a baby out of a uterus part Thank fuck So a colleague told me last year that this series was amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing Usually I trust her opinion because, like, she reads a ton of YA stuff, but she s a grown ass adult and she s been a high school librarian for about 40 years, so she KNOWS YA So I figured I d finally pick this one up and see what the fuss was about, because our students do seem to lik [...]

    I m so mad at this book I m writing this review before I finish listening to the last hour, which has been torture to listen to.I started out loving this book which is the only reason it does not have 1 star I loved the strong, brave, kind main character Kelsey, who got stuff done without whining about it I loved the Indian mythology and the curse breaking premise I was willing to look past the somewhat sappy and cheesy romantic dialogue because unlike certain other books coughtwilightcough this [...]

  21. Sakina says:
    Oh goodnessading this was pure torture When I was recommended this book, I saw the cover and the title and thought, wow interesting then I read the synopsis A 300 hundred year old Indian curse A trip halfway around the world Magic, Dark Forces, Risk, Ancient prophecy And along with the fact that many of my friends gave this book a 4 or 5 star rating I was exuberant to start this When I started reading this book I didn t know I was setting myself up for MAJOR disappointment First off the writing [...]

    2.5 minor rant alert proceed with caution Nah.I really wanted to love this I mean, with a beautiful cover like that, I had high hopes How can you not fall prey to those encahnting blue eyes And it has good ratings so I gave it a shot.It half delivered I found the idea quite intriguing But it was the idea alone that kept me going The other half fell so flat it s flatter than a sheet of printer paper.First of all, the pacing, especially in the beginning, just did nothing for me It was fast, but no [...]

    Something that happens all the time in YA novels WHHHY Kelsey Even after view spoiler Ren tells you that he loves you Awww hide spoiler Other than that, I loved the book br br br br br br br br br br br br br br br

  24. Mizuki says:
    What a huge disappointment If I could give the book zero star, I would have.When I first read book s description on the backcover of Colleen Houck s Tiger s Curse, the first book of an adventure fantasy series which roofed itself both in the modern day India and the Hindu mythological world of curses, demons and deities I was intrigued and wanted nothing than to read the book Adventure Hindu mythology Goddess Durga What can possibly go wrong with all these supposedly epic setting But oh boy, I [...]

  25. Cndbooks says:
    I can t say this really captured my attention In all honesty I couldn t wait for it to be finished I realize this is a young adult book, but I feel like the writing is rather juvenile There are a lot of descriptions that don t need to be in there Some of it was beautiful and the Indian mythology was interesting, but there was dialogue and events that could have been scrapped There were things mentioned that I thought must have only been in there because it was going to come up later, and then ne [...]

  26. Anoolka says:
    Where the hell did my review of this book go Who s deleting the reviews It s a good thing I remember what annoyed me in this book and will write this review yet again I might have given it a 2 for actually interesting setting, but Non western country in urban fantasy YA lit I m there Only it just does not live up to the potential All the bits and pieces that are supposed to show us India and it s culture mythology feel like lifted from And I just don t get the hype I gave up halfway.There s too [...]

  27. Sarah says:
    This was a paranormal fantasy story about a prince cursed to be a tiger.Kelsey was an okay character although it was a little odd the way she talked to a tiger all the time, especially before she knew he could understand her.The storyline in this was about Kelsey travelling to India with a tiger whilst he was being rehomed, and then discovering that the tiger was in fact a 300 year old prince who had been cursed Kelsey then spent the rest of the book trying to break the curse, and falling in lov [...]

    Review first posted HEREThis was written of GR and on the back of my copy Tiger s Curse is the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for .Yes, this statement is correct well for me anyway it was very mushy and romantic, it was exciting and I finished it desperate for the next volume I read this book while on holiday in Bali and yes that really enhanced my reading experience and made it enjoyable because of the Hindu Asian setting.Many peopl [...]

  29. Heather says:
    There are very few books that leave me feeling the way this did There s that saying that, you may forget what someone did or said, but you will never forget the WAY they made you FEEL.Well, that s the way this series is for me There may be some annoyances I have with it, such as the long explainations Mr Kaddam always gives Kelsey about the myths, ect and the Golden Fruit that can magically produce any kind of beverage or food for you, and the Divine Scarf that can make any type of cloth item It [...]
