I don't know, it just seemed....kinda dumb. The characters were shallower than the plot.

Okay, I finished this book last night before I went to bed but I just had to wait to add it to my read shelf because I have A LOT to say. Strap in kiddies, it's about to get messy. I've got some ranting to do here, so if you just want what I thought about the book itself, skip to the bottom.

Before I get into my review, I just HAVE to respond to several reviews I've read. On occasion, I'll read the reviews on a book before reading it. Now, I read an exert for this book many years and thought it was decent, plus, TIGERS, so I've been wanting to read it for a while. After reading the reviews, I KNEW I had to read it. The reviews were so mixed, it's like night and day. People either loved it for what it is, or hated it for what they think it is. Yes, I'm talking about those SJW's that go and get triggered over the smallest of things and turn a mole hill into a mountain.

"It's racist." "Why does the main character have to be a white girl? Oh yeah, only white people can save people of color!" "I'm white, which means I'm privileged." "India is treated like an exotic place for the main character to swan in and play dress up."

Let's GO boys. First off, can we acknowledge that this is a FANTASY book about a PRINCE being turned into a freaking TIGER. It's a book, it's FICTION. Get your grandma panties out of a twist and either enjoy it or deny it, don't try to bring it into your race war. Why is the main character a white girl? Hmm, maybe because THE AUTHOR IS A WHITE GIRL. Naturally she would write a character that is close to herself. If the main character was ANY other race aside from white - which isn't a race, by the way -, no one would question WHY she was chosen as the chosen one. It has nothing to do with being white. And yes, it IS treated like an exotic place. When someone goes to a foreign land that they've never been to before, IT'S AN EXOTIC LAND FILLED WITH WONDER that they want to explore and learn more about. It's wrong to go to a different country and wear their clothes? Wow, you must be really butthurt right now, oh my god. She didn't pull a Jake Paul, chill.

TLDR; This book is not racist just because it's a white girl saving the Indian prince. Next thing you know, SJW's are gonna be calling for white chocolate to be banned.

REVIEW STARTS HERE

There were a couple things that bothered me. For example, the characters adding a word or two of their mother tongue into their dialogue. Don't get me wrong, I've done it so many times in my fanfictions, but reading it back just feels kind of cringy lol Another thing that bothered me is how much this girl SLEEPS. Like, half of the book is her sleeping or passing out. I know I sleep a lot, but damn. Overall, this book wasn't bad. I did find myself getting bored occasionally and thinking, "Is the book over yet?" but at the same time, I'd blink and find that I had read about five chapters in one go. I wanted to know what was going to happen, but I wasn't on the edge of my seat, either.

I really don't like romance (not in anime, movies or books). When I started it, I didn't think romance would be involved, but that was my blunder. I liked the characters overall, but damn did the main character drive me up a wall at the end. It pissed me off because I KNEW that I would probably act the same way because my confidence is shit. Still, reading it was extremely frustrating, I just wanted to smack her and tell her how wrong she is lol

Overall, it wasn't a bad read at all and was a good way to pass the time. Also, TIGERS
