My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling

My Ex From Hell (The Blooming Goddess Trilogy, #1)My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it (my current rating) it was amazing

Okay, so this was a super funny book. I couldn't stop laughing. And it was crazy. But a good kind of crazy.

Sophie is just your average teenage girl with average teenage girl problems. Boys, drama, and getting probation at school. Until she finds out that she's Persephone and she has to help save the world. Oh, and someone had tried to murder her, and they may try again. She also can't stop seeming to kiss Kai, prince of the underworld.

Very fun book. It was light and easy to read. Not some heavy emotionally-baggage-filled story. I loved it. It was just the right kind of thing to read during my stressful exam week because it had me laughing so much I forgot about my own problems, like passing chemistry.

Loved this book, can't wait for the next one. In the meantime, I think I'll re-read this book :)

Sixteen-year-old Sophie Bloom wishes she’d been taught the following:
a) Bad boy’s presence (TrOuBlE) + teen girl’s brain (DraMa) = TrAuMa (Highly unstable and very volatile.)
b) The Genus Greekulum Godissimus is notable for three traits: 1) awesome abilities, 2) grudges, and 3) hook-ups, break-ups, and in-fighting that puts cable to shame.

Prior to the Halloween dance, Sophie figures her worst problems involve adolescent theatrics, bitchy teen yoga girls, and being on probation at her boarding school for mouthy behaviour. Then she meets bad boy Kai and gets the kiss that rocks her world.


This breath stealing lip lock reawakens Sophie’s true identity: Persephone, Goddess of Spring. She’s key to saving humanity in the war between the Underworld and Olympus, target numero uno of Hades and Zeus, and totally screwed.

Plus there’s also the little issue that Sophie’s last memory as Persephone was just before someone tried to murder her.

Big picture: master her powers, get her memories back, defeat Persephone’s would be assassin, and save the world. Also, sneak into the Underworld to retrieve stolen property, battle the minions of Hades and Zeus, outwit psycho nymphs, slay a dragon, rescue a classmate, keep from getting her butt expelled from the one place designed to keep her safe …

… and stop kissing Kai, Prince of the Underworld.

My Ex From Hell is a YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology smackdown. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book one of this teen fantasy romance series. Compared to Kai and Sophie, Romeo and Juliet had it easy.

I loved getting awards and I was pleased you guys thought I was special, but I was nominated so many times and it took a lot of time to do the award posts, time that I don't have.
