I’m with Cupid sounded like so much fun, I knew I had to pick it up! I mean, a Cupid and a Reaper switching powers? How amazingly disastrous is that? It’s just so funny and you know things could not possibly end well. So, yeah, I obviously loved the premise :)
Okay, now here’s the thing for me: I don’t read all that many MG books (which is what this book is), but I do enjoy them once in awhile. I’m with Cupid for some reason just seemed too juvenile for me. Granted, this is not, by any means, aimed at an audience like me, but this one just seemed more juvenile than other MG books I’ve picked up. I love Rick Riordan’s work, he actually happens to be my all-time favorite author, and most of his book are MG. I just--I don’t know what it was about this book that made it feel this way. I did a lot of eye rolling. But it was a good book nonetheless. I highly recommend it to, you know, the kids this book was actually aimed at. I’m sure they would enjoy it very much!
Another thing that kind of bugged me was that, in the end, things felt like they weren't resolved at all. It’s a little frustrating but it definitely has me intrigued enough to want to read the sequel.
Overall, it was a fast and very fun paranormal read with a fantastic concept. It’s also a plus that reapers just happen to be one of my favorite supernatural creatures.
