Cursed by Jennifer Armentrout Book Review

Cursed
Dying sucks-- and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. 
However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't? But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not have been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.


I was super excited when I received Cursed in the mail. I'm a huge fan of Jennifer Armentrout, and I loved the premise for Cursed. My hopes for Cursed weren't let down.


Cursed follows Ember, a girl who has had a lethal touch ever since she was in a car accident with her family that killed her, and her parents. The only difference is her little sister brought her back to life. She takes care of her little sister by herself. However, a new guy, Hayden, shows up and promises Ember he can teach her how to control her own touch. 

I really liked all of the characters. Ember was awesome, and I thought it was so empowering how she cared for her younger sister and despite the circumstances- tried to do the best thing for both her and others. Also, Hayden was pretty awesome. I will admit that at first, I found him a *little bit* creepy. Over time, though, I thought he was a really sweet guy, especially with how he treated Ember. Jennifer Armentrout always seems to be amazing at creating awesome female leads, and Ember was no exception to that.

Also, the plot was amazing. Both the plot and writing were awesome. The humor within the book was so funny! The plot also moved at an awesome pace. I started this book as soon as I received it, and I finished it only a few hours later.I was unable to put this book down the entire time I was reading it ;) This book is one I'd highly recommend, especially if you haven't read any books by Jennifer Armentrout before. I'd give Cursed 5 out of 5 flowers.

  4. JLA is my favorite author! I've been meaning to get this book for a while, but a lot of reviews I have seen have been mixed. People are saying it doesn't necessarily compare to her other 2 series, but I hope it does! Think I'll pick it up this weekend when I go to a book signing.

  5. Can I just say how excited I am for this book? I definitely need to get this book soon! One thing I love about this is how, at first, it isn't Ember with the special power, but her sister, who does something to give her some creepy power. Besides, I like creepiness, so I'm already in love with the book!
