Hit and Miss.
I think I would because I know a lot of people like this kind of book even though I only thought it was OK.
This was a real hit and miss for me. There was 2 main things that I didn't like and these really brought down the overall story. Ill start with what I didnt like -
I HATE insta love and love triangles and this has both. It seemed that every guy Sophia saw, she fell in love with and it really really annoyed me. She "loved" 3 guys!! I mean, come on, she is 15, she shouldnt even love one guy never mind say 3.
The second biggest thing was Sophia herself. She started strong but over the course of the book became weaker and let everyone walk over her.
Now onto what I liked -
I liked Sergei. He is Sophias rock and is there when she needs him.
I also liked Alexander. He is kind and nice and I liked seeing his relationship with Sophia grow.
I like the Queen, even though she is mean at times, I think she really cares for Sophia.
Anyway, overall The Queen Of Someday was an OK read. I liked seeing Sophias story but I didnt like parts. The one redeeming quality and what really made me enjoy the experience of the book was Elan O' Connor. She was the perfect choice for Sophia because her voice was so regal. I will definitely check out more that she read.
