My feelings:


And girl created boy…
In the beginning, there was an apple— And then there was a car crash, a horrible injury, and a hospital. But before Evening Spiker’s head clears a strange boy named Solo is rushing her to her mother’s research facility. There, under the best care available, Eve is left alone to heal. Just when Eve thinks she will die—not from her injuries, but from boredom—her mother gives her a special project: Create the perfect boy. Using an amazingly detailed simulation, Eve starts building a boy from the ground up. Eve is creating Adam. And he will be just perfect... won’t he?

My review:
I can't believe I finished Eve & Adam. I seriously can't. Eve & Adam was so bad, it made me want to dnf the book on many occasions. But, as always I have a hard time doing that so I skipped a few chapters to get it done quicker.

The characters....there's so much wrong with them. 
Eve, oh Eve. A young girl who has been in a terrible accident. Yes, a terrible one. And all because her freaking doctor says don't look at your leg, she doesn't. For a very LONG time she doesn't look at her leg. She doesn't ask any questions about it. She isn't curious at all about what is going on with her leg. WHAT! Really? C'mon. 
What's wrong with Solo? When someone is screaming in pain, he thinks that she likes him. What the heck! She doesn't like you, she's screaming because she needs someone to sedate her, you idiot!

Then we have the best friend of Eve. I'm not even sure why she was in the story.

She was boy-obsessed, which isn't anything weird for a teeanger, but why was she there? What was her story? Was it to annoy the mother? The mother who is such a terrible person. She has no depth at all. She just keeps saying these terrible things about Eve's best friend.  

I think because the characters were too irritated, I couldn't get into the story at all. I didn't enjoy reading Eve & Adam. I wanted to throw this book to the wall and then thought better of it. I mean, it's a library book, I can't do that to a library book.

Eve & Adam wasn't for me. My advice is to get it at the library.

Yeah, I don't think I've heard good things about this one. I never had it on my TBR, but I know others who tried to get through it and failed. Sorry it wasn't your style. :(

@Shell: I def. should dnf books that are just not entertaining. Just a whole lot of wasted time. :(

When I read the summary I was pretty worried it would be a bad book and your review confirmed it! I am so bad about DNF books that I dislike but that's something I'm trying to get better at. Life's too short and all that ;)

@Anna: Totally agree with you, the summary isn't that great. Life is indeed too short, so we should read books that we love. I hope that I will get better with dnf-ing books.

I think I have this somewhere on my Kindle but yikes! I think I will pass on it. Sorry it didn't work for you.

Abby Miller  – (15 januari 2018 om 09:41)  

Thanks for sharing your opinion on this book. Now I think I will skip out on reading this book.

I am sorry you didn't care for this one, Nina. I think I will pass on it after reading your thoughts on it.

I was intrigued with this book when it was first released. It was a pity this story didn't deliver so I think I'll probably pass on this one.

Sophia Rose  – (15 januari 2018 om 16:15)  

Okay, I'll take your word for it and just skip. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Nina!

I remember reading this one around the time of release. It was okay but I didn't love it, if I remember correctly. So I totally see what you are saying.

Midnight Cowgirl  – (16 januari 2018 om 11:08)  

Sounds interesting, so too bad it didn't work for you.

Suzanne at The Bookish Libra  – (16 januari 2018 om 14:55)  

I don't think I would have enjoyed this one either. Thanks for your honest review.

Melissa (Books and Things)  – (18 januari 2018 om 12:28)  

Thanks for taking one for the team. I think I would have just dnf'd it now. :) Hope the next makes up for this one.

Melliane  – (19 januari 2018 om 07:36)  

oh yes I did read this one and I don't even remember it lol

Nina  – (20 januari 2018 om 03:21)  

@Melliane: Lol, books you don't remember are terrible books. :)

@Melissa: Me too!

Verushka Byrow  – (22 januari 2018 om 02:12)  

Ouch! That premise sounded interesting but I think I will stay away from this one!

Nina  – (22 januari 2018 om 09:01)  

@Verushka: Premise does sounds super nice! :)
