This book was fun Ultimately a quick, enjoyable read and even a little scary at times I loved the inclusion of the graphic novel element and I loved that it mostly kept me guessing I wished there had been at least onetwist because it felt like everything came together a bit too easily and that the main characters were extremely trusting of this random jackdaw guy, but like I said still enjoyable.My only real complaint was HOW HARD this author was trying to prove they know Seattle if This book was fun Ultimately a quick, enjoyable read and even a little scary at times I loved the inclusion of the graphic novel element and I loved that it mostly kept me guessing I wished there had been at least onetwist because it felt like everything came together a bit too easily and that the main characters were extremely trusting of this random jackdaw guy, but like I said still enjoyable.My only real complaint was HOW HARD this author was trying to prove they know Seattle if I made a drinking game out of the completely unnecessary obscure Seattle references in this book, I would be dead by now It was insane and hilarious It s Seattle, we get it Except you clearly don t know Seattle because you committed the fatal flaw of saying it always rains we never see the sun Really You reference an old Seattle newspaper that went out of print in 2009 but can t look up basic Seattle weather Nice try Best friends, big fans, a mysterious webcomic, and a long lost girl collide in this riveting novel, perfect for fans of both Cory Doctorow and Sarah Dessen illustrated throughout with comicsOnce upon a time, two best friends created a princess together Libby drew the pictures, May wrote the tales, and their heroine, Princess X, slayed all the dragons and scaled all the mountains their imaginations could conjure Once upon a few years later, Libby was in the car with her mom, driving across the Ballard Bridge on a rainy night When the car went over the side, Libby passed away, and Princess X died with her Once upon a now May is sixteen and lonely, wandering the streets of Seattle, when she sees a sticker slapped in a corner window Princess X When May looks around, she sees the Princess everywhere Stickers Patches Graffiti There s an entire underground culture, focused around a webcomic at IAmPrincessX The May explores the webcomic, the she sees disturbing similarities between Libby s story and Princess X online And that means that only one person could have started this phenomenon her best friend, Libby, who lives I read almost the entire book in one sitting It s that intense That good The pacing is perfect and I adored the illustrations it s partially a graphic novel This is a girl power book for anyone and everyone I loved that it was a YA book about friendship, too, without any romance stuff at all There are guy characters and no attraction involved The only negative kinda is that I now want a full Princess X graphic novel.

pretty looking book overall design..With a premise that deserves 5 StarsMay Libby were best friends, created their own comic character Princess X, then Libby died in an accident..3 years later, May finds out posters and a fuss over a webcomics about the same character Libby used to draw, The Princess X I d have rate it higher,but just if it was half the pages count..just a novella..that d be a very entertaining better read The story main plot is good, even the set up for it came fast that I thought the rest of the novel will be fast packed with actions..alas, it wasn t as I expected..The Story Three years after her best friend died, May start seeing the character they created together Princess X everywhere from Posters, Stickers even Graffiti And an entire underground culture, focused around a webcomic at IAmPrincessX.com.TheMay explores the webcomic, theshe sees disturbing similarities between Libby s real life story and Princess X online Even the drawings was the same of Libby s..With help of her next door computer genius, Trick, they try to unsolve the story behind the site..and the person who running this phenomenon..and hoping that would lead to her best friend, Libby, who lives.It was really fine mystery, but it solve itself after very few chapters, pretty too early thanks to the Princess X comics that was not so symbolic, obviously clearing the story of what happened to Libby after the accident.Then comes the hunt for the 4 keys that would lead May to the Princess Xwith a help of don t call me dude countless times Patrick who have even a better character set up and developmentthan May and Libby.The hunt was a bit slow written ,too much describing the places which was fine by me in longer and bit different kind of novels, but here in a YA fun mystery set in real life was a bit longer than it should be I didn t mind though the fun described city of Seattle and the fun facts about where Starbucks was started Or The Fremont Troll, I liked these tours Also some of the mentioning of the Dark Net interested me, since I encountered with it previously with Stephen King s Mr Mercedes..and later in Night Film.But even as the mystery and the hunt unfolded and things started to heat up by the cemetery scene we back to the slow pace writing and even introduced to a new character in length that was in my opinion totally unnecessary add this to a typical unrealistic Hollywood climax that was better concluded into faster paced comic better than these many pages.May I didn t feel the novel make good use of the excellent character development of Patrick in the story or may be I didn t feel much the emotional part between May and Libby enough.All in all made me disappointed a bit for such highly anticipated readsince I like some YA Novels,specially when the plot seems original and promising, and the romance part is minor like in this case..but something went wrong for me and even felt a bit bored So it may be just me, right May be iI just anticipate it would be faster orconvenient to me.I still would recommend to give it a try if it s promising enough to you To Princess X, With love,Mohammed ArabeyFrom 11 November 2015to 15 November

friendship and mystery and friendship and girl power and no one starry eyed mooning over boys because it s about FRIENDSHIP.And I m so happy with the whole thing Wow Amazing RTC Honestly I do not know why I grabbed it but overall I am happy I did It was a cute little story with some art that holds your interest I was in a hurry today on the way to my husband s doctor appointment and forgot that I finished the paperback in my purse so went in the library and grabbed a book quickly and this was it I did like it though Wonderfully different, creepy, mysterious, and vivid Like I should have expected anything else from Cherie Priest I didn t know much about the story, and so I was very surprised by the twists and turns that it took Really enjoyed it, couldn t put it down But I can t bring myself to give it five stars becauseThere s a part at the end, where everything is so tense, and then four people who should totally know better do the most confusingly daft thing I ve ever heard of I mean, it makes Wonderfully different, creepy, mysterious, and vivid Like I should have expected anything else from Cherie Priest I didn t know much about the story, and so I was very surprised by the

people who should totally know better do the most confusingly daft thing I ve ever heard of I mean, it makes no sense for about ten pages I had to go back, reread the bit before, and confirm that yes, that was really what they were doing Why No idea I mean, not to spoil anything, but they re looking for something, something they know the size and shape of, and it is large, and they have discussed the largeness and where it would potentially be kept, and then they proceed to look in places where it could not possibly be, wasting precious time Like behind books on a bookcase, and in kitchen drawers, when they know they are looking for something the size of a small car No, I m serious And I justI couldn t get over that It didn t ruin the book, but it was just temporarily not good, when the rest of the book was awesome.So, you know, read that bit you have to, it s the lead up to the climax , but just read it quickly And think about how great the rest of the book is And the art So cool I found myself hoping there will be a real Princess X comic I picked this one up because several people said it was interesting, and it had some webcomic pages in it which I thought looked cool It was so much better than I could have imagined A great read I didn t want to put it down. Okay huge disclaimer here I read an advanced reader s copy of I Am Princess X and it did not have any of the illustrations in it which was pointless, but what can you do So, I m judging this book solely on May s storyline and not on Princess X s storyline since little snippets aren t enough to get a feel for that whole plot point.Disclaimer number 2 This book is NOTHING like Sarah Dessen s novelsnot even if you turn your head and squint So, if that s the main reason you re picking up I Okay huge disclaimer here I read an advanced reader s copy of I Am Princess X and it did not have any of the illustrations in it which was pointless, but what can you do So, I m judging this book solely on May s storyline and not on Princess X s storyline since little snippets aren t enough to get a feel for that whole plot point.Disclaimer number 2 This book is NOTHING like Sarah Dessen s novelsnot even if you turn your head and squint So, if that s the main reason you re picking up I Am Princess X like it was for me , then you might want to steer clear of this book.Now, I don t give 1 star ratings lightly In fact, I always feel incredibly guilty about giving out 1 star ratings that I tend to just up it to two stars However, I just couldn t find anything to like about I Am Princess X I found it all to be a big, jumbled mess But most of all, I found it to be way too inconsistent to find it in any way enjoyableor rather May was incredibly inconsistent One thing and granted, this one is a minor thing , that bothered me was that she s a teenagerand with that mentality, she should be somewhat tech savvy Or at least savvy enough to know that if your frigging computer won t turn on and you think your battery is fried, how bout you leave it on the charger and see if it, oh I don t know, actually CHARGES Common sense I get that the whole point of that was so that May could meet Trick and get the whole Princess X investigation going, but really She couldn t have gotten an actual computer virus or somethingdifficult to solve than My computer won t turn on because I m an idiot who hasn t charged it And another thing Princess X is supposed to be this whole huge phenomenon that s all over the internet and you re telling me that May, who mentions she has numerous social media accounts, has no clue that something this huge exists Uh, no I call BS Again, May wasn t the brightest bulb Because the one thing you should worry about when you re trying to find your BFF and numerous people are being threatened and being hurt is what your hair looks like when you accidentally get on TV May, you re shallowsit down And the amount of times the word dude was used in this book aggravated meI think I now hate that wordthan I hate bae and I LOATHE bae Oh, and you can also find news reports of crimes that have happened YEARS ago without having to resort to printing out newspapers in the library So May s dad, you sit down, too.I also wasn t enad by the writing in I Am Princess X It seemed stilted and forced I found myself thinking that maybe I would have liked it better had it been told in the first person narrative especially since May s supposed to be this great writer or maybe it would ve actually made me dislike May instead of just thinking of her as ridiculous Princess X I no longer feel like writing the full title was also a whole bunch of telling This wasn t a story that peaked my imagination and made me actually see the events happening in my mind I don t like flowery, purple prose, but a little descriptive writing doesn t hurt anybody and can be good for the soul But there were no descriptions here I was also told every little mind numbingly boring thing May and Trick did May walked to get a Coke out of a canTrick and May walked to get coffee because May likes coffee with chocolate in it because it doesn t taste like coffeeis that coffee going to sprout a human with a katana sword and stab somebody No Then, okay, it s not important, so get back to the actual plot May also didn t pick up one of her father s calls because she knew her voice would sound like mud when she didwhat exactly does mud sound like Really, I want to know Princess X also had paper thin developmentplot wise, character wise, everything wise.I m just going to stop here to avoid giving away any spoilers I will say that I didn t like I Am Princess X The mystery behind the whole thing could have been slightly interesting, but it wasn t I didn t like the writing but the author s written over a dozen novels so clearly other people do or the resolution of the plotor the plot itself despite the fact that it sounded interesting I say, skip it Or maybe check it out and tell me if the illustrations make the story better
