Is there a love story in this series, a satisfying one?
Glittering Pebbles Yes there is. Several actually. I was really interested and wanted to read it until I saw the really bad reviews, and I can already predict a love triangle coming, which has put me off, so I'm debating whether or not to read it.
Should I? Pages For Thoughts I would say that everybody views books differently. There will always be people who hate a book that you love and vise-versa.

Warning: Possible spoilers but do you really want to read this?
When reading a book, however horrible that book might be, I do try to find something even slightly redeemable, that could save the book from falling into my one-star abyss. Unfortunately, I truly found nothing likable or redeemable in this book. I'll be splitting my review of Glitch into four categories, and analyze each one.
Here we go: 1. First, let's analyze the main character, Zoe. If you're looking for a strong, self reliant female character in Glitch, I can assure you you won't find one in Zoe.
She's dull, uninteresting, whiny, and completely and totally reliant on Adrien. But, like any other female lead in YA literature if you could even call books of this sort literature , Zoe has to stand out and be special, right?
As the book starts, Zoe is undergoing a glitch - a defect in her system that allows her to display emotion when most of the population - for some reason - can't. Each person undergoing glitches has a secret power, Zoe's being telekinesis not a spoiler, you find that out in the first chapter.
Unfortunately, Zoe doesn't use her special abilities for good, or really at all. She just mopes all day, contemplating turning herself into the government and basically giving up on life. Oh yeah, all while fawning over Adrien. She's useless, and honestly too stupid to live. I'd be baffled if she were still alive, you know, had any life threatening situations been bestowed upon her. Ah, Adrien. The man of the hour. The boy who stole Zoe's heart. The stalker. The boy who annoyed the shuntin' crack out of me with his odd swears and abbreviatin'.
There's nothing special or unique about him when compared to other love interests in YA literature and once again, I use that term loosely. He was tolerable, I guess. He wasn't a complete asshole, but he sure wasn't a finalizing candidate for the Best and Nicest Love Interest Award.
He was But he has magical, color changing eyes, everyone! I mean, Zoe only described them as green, green-blue, blue, and aqua a bunch of times! Apparently, little Zoe doesn't know her primary colors. There's one more character I'd like to discuss about, and that's part two of the love triangle, the raging monster he's kind of like the Hulk, but he doesn't turn green : Max.
It's quite obvious to me, Heather Anastasiu, and everyone else reading this book that Max was just a character thrown in to add stress to Zoe and Adrien's relationship. You know who Zoe's going to end up with, just like we all knew Bella was going to end up with Edward and not Jacob. I'll discuss more about Max in the "relationships" analyzation which is coming up after this sentence , but all you need to know is that Max is a dick and I want him to die in a fire.
The Relationships Insta-love, love triangles, abusive boyfriends, oh my! This book had it all in terms of "romance" and, having read this book, I don't know if Anastasiu knows the true definition of romance.
Zoe and Adrien have that "connection" upon first meeting in the first twenty or so pages of Glitch reading other people's reviews, it seems to be on page Of course, this connection eventually transforms into true love. True love at sixteen years old. Then enters Zoe's childhood friend, Max. Oh, boy. Warning: any point from here to the end of the relationships category is a spoiler.
So, first, he pretty much forces Zoe to make out with him, and it's described that he "uses his tongue to force open her mouth aggressively. Then, when Zoe leads him on to thinking she likes him then tells him in the end that her "heart belongs to Adrien" I won't even rant about how a teenager who just met said heart stealer shouldn't be saying that , Max starts screaming at her, saying that he won't let Adrien have her, how he wants her lips, body, legs and her back all to himself, and he came at her and shoved her against the wall, where he kissed Zoe against her will.
Then Zoe pushed him off her and said she's Adrien's, and Max says mysteriously, "You'll want me. I'll make sure of it. One day. I'll make you want me. I can't even So, Max: go die in a fire. Preferably very painfully. Zoe: Quit being an idiot.
