Ok, I’m doing that thing again. Bare with me… Rambling ahead.
A generalization I’m making is that they all fit the shelf this time around because it’s about Latinx Authors (not having Latinx characters… though that would be nice in my eyes) and I really can’t be bothered to stalk the family trees of all the authors to check if this is right or not… Someone else would have probably mentioned it by now if one of the authors were wrongly showcased anyway.
The IT Girl
Episode one is CC only and I am livid.
Though I thought it was cool that we can choose if we know/want to learn Spanish. I assume this will come up later? Maybe one character speaks Spanish and our choice gives us a translator?
Well, the cover gives me love triangle vibes and based off of episode 1 and who I got to CC, I’d give this a tick
Since it was only CC, I don’t know how accurate the summary is for the story as a whole, but it seems a pretty straight forward summary, so I doubt how it could be misleading.
Connect the Dots
I have honestly never seen so many BG characters in my life!!
Episode one was heaps long and was a flashback within a flashback and went back and forth between the two flashbacks.
Quite a few sexual innuendos and dirty humour. Some more subtle than others.
If this doesn’t represent the story, then I don’t know what would.
Uhhh… I’m having one of those moments where I’ve literally just finished reading the first episode and can’t even remember if there was choices? There was CC though…
People who like to play guess-who-the-murderer-is-before-it’s-actually-revealed
Yeah, it’s pretty straight forward. Though it makes it sound like choices would matter, so maybe I’m just having a blonde moment and forget the choices
I’m surprised it’s not in mystery, but I guess it would also be classified as a drama anyway.
Ok, based on the author’s note at the beginning alone, I can confirm that there is no CC which means likely that the MC will be Latinx and no choices in the first episode but will be added in later… So that makes me think that choices won’t end up impacting the story too much.
After reading episode 1, I probably won’t continue. It just felt like it was going to be too much of a happy romance where everything works out almost too convinently… Also there was a few too many typos and grammar mistakes that were really itching at me.
Interestingly… There was totally an S&M scene
I don’t think it represents the story per say, but you can tell it’s a romance story from the cover so there’s that.
Definitely for people who want to read romance.
I wouldn’t say it’s misleading, but just kind of vague… And I think they must have been hit with that summary word limit because they’ve omitted words to fit everything in and sacraficed the sentence structure in doing so… Also they’re missing a question mark
The first thing I see when I start this story is a reader message. It says Trigger Warning: DEPRESSION. I actually laughed out loud at this, but simultaneously felt awkward and uncomfortable… Weird way to start a story and a extremely brief way to warn people who might actually be triggered.
Despite weird trigger, I actually really liked this story and added it to my favourites.
Heck yes! I was reading this and thinking “wow this is so dramatic! I have no idea who anyone is and I feel like I’ve started at a new school and no one explaining anything to me so all the conversations don’t make sense, but I can still tell it’s dramatic!”
For the record, things are made sense at the very end of episode one… Well, sorta.
Um it’s the two main characters… Not sure the significance of the book they’re reading… I guess it represents characters, but wouldn’t say it represents the story.
I couldn’t tell how heavily they influenced scenes and the story as a whole just yet, but author has put the ones she would pick in gold, which I don’t really like because it sort of influences a reader to keep picking those options… Then your coding for the other option goes to waste
Nothing in the summary was touched on in the first episode… Aside from learning the names of characters. Though I can totally see how episode 1 has set it up for the summary to now take place.
I’ll do more of the stories a bit later, because WOW this is a huge shelf!
