    2. 2.5 Stars Sad Face This book has SO MUCH PROMISE The premise is awesome, and no matter how many YA dystopian I read, I love them all So I was really excited to get this from Net Galley, especially after all of the raving reviews But I feel like once I missed something that everyone else seemed to get WHAT AM I NOT GETTING This book started off strong and exciting but the appeal quickly turned to confusion and boredom for me.One big problem was the characterization of both Lexi and Cole Lexi ente [...]

    4. This sucks Sure does, he says good summary.Lexi s been branded a sinner and thrown in the hole Read as she fights threw catcalls, rat infested rooms, and her heart Don t forget the backstory There s always a backstory, because she is not a slut , like they think she is Then meet Cole, he s her guard There s not much to say about him really, just that he has a dog, and inevitably the MC s love interest.That covers it Was this supposed to be similar to Divergent or Shatter Me That s what it was ma [...]

    5. 4.5 STARS To the outside, I m filth now I ll never be allowed to return to the life I knew No one ever does Branded tells the story of a young girl named Lexi Hamilton In a future world, the world as it is after World War V, all,the power is in the hands of a cruel, sadistic leader, aka The Commander People who commit one of the seven deadly sins are branded according to the sin they ve commited and exiled to The Hole A horrible place where there s no form of luxury and barely a scratch of human [...]

    7. With its very original dystopian setting and fascinating storyline, I had hoped Branded would be better than it turned out Unfortunately, this story did not work for me Lexi Hamilton has been branded a sinner for all to see around her neck Lust is her sin, even though she is innocent of her crime She s been sent to the Hole, where all the sinners go to live the rest of their lives The Hole has now become Lexi s own personal hell and home The Commander created the Hole when he came into power fif [...]

    8. You Can Over Come AnythingShort of Death Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki have written a brilliant Dystopian story that takes the reader on a journey that is terrifying, gruesome, violent, and heartwrenching Through all of this horror and heartache, there is a love that grows between a guard and a Sinner and the odds are stacked against them Can love survive in a world that knows very little peace, or will it fizzle away in the midst of all the chaos.This story captured my attention from the first [...]

    9. V. PARENTAL GUIDANCE ALERT:A Court of Wings and Ruin is NEW ADULT/EROTICA but Goodreads editors won"t tell you says:

      I read this because Abookutopia channel recommended it and I ll tell you I m not dissapointed.Cole and Lexi are great together and you ll love Zeus, best pet character ever Update There will be a harcover edition and I can t wait for it.The concept is great, the romance is great, and I thought this was a little bit adult than other YA dystopians I love the evolution of Lexi She started the book vomiting, screaming and being just a girl and over the book she evolved to be a real heroine.Cole was [...]

    10. 2 1 2 stars I have so many conflicting feelings about this On one hand, I love the concept and it was an easy book to get through On the other, I couldn t stop thinking about things that bothered me that took away from the overall enjoyment of the book.It all begins with Lexi Hamilton she has just been branded a sinner She now wears a blue brand signifying her alleged sin of lust on her neck In her world, anyone who is accused of one of the seven deadly sins is sent to the Hole There is no trial [...]

    11. Never did I imagine they d come for me Never did I imagine all those nights I heard them dragging someone else away that I d join them.Casting Branded was fast paced, raw and gritty, with a heart wrenching romance and a captivating story One of my absolute favorites of this year It s post WWV, where the privileged live in fear of being accused and the unlucky one s fight for their life in the Hole With a twisted, unyielding Commander as their leader, those who oppose him are murdered and the sin [...]

    12. DNF 20 fore I start reviewing this book I want to say thank to my kind friend Veronicawho answered my question about this book, but I m sorry to let you down There are seven deadly sins Pride Purple Envy Green Wrath Red Sloth BlackGreed Yellow Lust Blue Gluttony Orange if you are accused then you will be brought to The Hole, where all the sinners live and where you will be branded by the color of your sin on your neck.All of the sinners have a job and every sinners have a guard The guards respon [...]

    13. 2.5 3 stars Note The book has recently been updated with a new cover and has brand new chapters extra 70 pages.When I first read this book last summer, I thought it was flawless I especially loved that the story gave me a total escapism feeling As time goes by, I ve noticed that my tastes change like a lot and I become jaded critical I just want to point out that this review is not very trustworthy the first time reading I gave this book 5 stars Now almost a year later it barely scrapes a satis [...]

    14. I liked the emotional first half of the book But after promising introduction into this story I was a little bit disappointed with the second half which lacked element of surprise or twists that would keep me on my toes.My Lexi and Cole In Branded, after World War V, country is ruled by Commander who sends all sinners into The Hole as a way of keeping society pure All sinners are guarded by Guards of Commander and relationship of any form between sinner and guard is strictly forbidden There is n [...]

    15. Dear readers, I did not like Branded by Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki Not in the least When I first read the book blurb, I got excited A dystopian novel set in an ultra religious society where people are imprisoned for violating the seven deadly sins, a main character falsely accused and imprisoned for lust, a conflicted guard mysteriously assigned to keep her alive at all costs, and a smidge of star crossed love thrown in to boot Sounds great, sign me up Turns out my initial excitement was com [...]

    16. BRANDED HAS RUINED ME FROM ALL BOOKS OH MY GOD That was AMAZING It was written so well The story was beautifully constructed throughout the book There is action, romance and gut wrenching moments It was one hell of a roller coaster ride One I enjoyed so much There were so many feels I felt like my heart will leap out of chest and jump into my trembling hands My hands weren t trembling mind you but that was how hard the feels where, they were eagerly scrolling down to devour words It was a rolle [...]

    17. Fifty years ago the Commander came into power and murdered all who opposed him In his warped mind, the seven deadly sins were the downfall of society He created the Hole where sinners are branded according to their sins and might survive a few years At best Now LUST wraps around my neck like blue fingers strangling me I ve been accused of a crime I didn t commit and now the Hole is my new home Darkness Death Violence Pain Now every day is a fight for survival But I won t die I won t let them win [...]

    18. Stopped reading at about 60% and skimmed rest.Interesting premise, however the execution was awful It went from we just met to I love you in about 5 pages The dialogue was extremely juvenile, and there was very little show and a whole lot of tell Not for me at all Very disappointed I received an ARC from the authors in exchange for an honest review

    19. DNF at 43%.I had high expectations for this once I read the summary and the praise that came along with it.SummaryA teenage girl is accused a crime she didn t commit, and is forced to live in the Hole, a place where all criminals are forced to endure inhuman horrors and all hope seems lost, until she falls in love with her captor, a crime punishable by death.For 43%, we see the barest of inhuman horrors that Lexi doesn t endure Instead, we get a soap opera flick with a half hearted attempt at ma [...]

    20. 4 Fighting StarsThis story takes place in a post WWV world, which is now a completely different place The world is now ruled by the Commander and it has to remain pure No sins and no sinners The Commander believes that the seven deadly were the cause to the downfall of society and all the sinners that are believed to commit a crime inside one of the seven deadly sins are judged and sent to The Hole where a color will identify the type of sin they committed Lexi was sent to the hole and she didn [...]

    21. I d like it to go on record and state that on this day I said Just you wait and see Branded is going to become a Bestseller for sure If this doesn t happen then there s a problem with the system Injustice will not be tolerated Branded deserves to be amongst the best It s been a long time since I read a YA and even longer since I read a dystopian novel I d forgotten how much fun they can be Yes, Branded is YA and considering I m bordering on 31, I do like risque books, however, Branded is not as [...]

    22. 5 BRILLIANT, HEART RACING,CAPTIVATING DYSTOPIAN STARS Never did I imagine they d come for me Never did I imagine all those nights I heard them dragging someone else away that I d join them The book is set post World War V The commander, a cold hearted man who wants to eradicate all sins by locking up sinners in a place called The Hole,there is no trial.He has took over the country and everyone is under his control.Anyone who speaks out against him will be branded a sinner or executed You can ove [...]

    23. 5 5 StarsBranded is fast paced, action packed with a slight amount of gore and heartbreak Branded gave me so many feels.The Hole is definitely one of the last places I d ever want to be, and it was described in such detail that I was frightened for Lexi and even a tad shaken myself The world created by Abi and Missy was extremely terrifying.I loved Lexi, she puked A TON but ended up super strong and badass Also, COLEXI I love them together, and they aren t your conventional YA angsty couple, the [...]

    24. After reading the first Chapter that was posted something I NEVER do I totally HAD to read this book Honestly, this is the second dystopian book I ve read the other one is part of another series and let s just I m.This book sucked me in the minute I started it right out of the gates Lexi is apprehended for reasons that well made me downrightand then what she went through while being processed well I wasd the reason why she has been arrested one of The Seven Deadly Sins would ve had me She s imme [...]

    25. I don t like to hurt people s feelings, but when I m asked to review a book, I give my honest opinion I agreed to review this book even though I m not a fan of dystopian lit.First of all, the writing was poor AT BEST This book could have used SO many revisions There were a LOT of pacing problems It was lackluster and poorly worded, not to mention the grammar problems Second, to me, this book felt like a rip off of every other dystopian book I ve read It seemed like a mash up of Shatter Me, Dive [...]

    26. Wow What an utterly thrilling, heartbreaking, brutally intense read I loved it The story is set in a future dystopian world which is ruled by The Commander The Commander believes that the seven deadly sins were the downfall of society, and therefore anybody even accused of committing one of these sins is immediately labelled a Sinner, branded around the neck with the colour representative of the sin they have been accused of committing, and thrown into The Hole a horrifyingly violent prison comm [...]

    27. What would you do if you lived in a world where you were guilty if you were accused If you were branded for life for sins you did not commit If you were thrown into a horrible prison called The Hole to fend for yourself and fight daily to survive This is the horror and the hell that Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki created in Branded image error Lexi is a young woman who has been forced into the Hole and branded for committing the sin of Lust She is immediately given a guard and escorted to her ne [...]

    28. You re amazing just the way you are There s not a single thing I would change about you When you smile my entire world stops All I see is you I need you For a debut novel, this one really blew me away I sometimes cringe when I read a debut novel as sometimes authors have to find comfort in writing, but with Branded I could tell that the authors felt passionate and comfortable while writing it I had been wanting to read Branded since I first heard about it after one of the authors approached me a [...]

    29. STILL LOVED every minute of this book and I stand by my 5 Star review The added material was awesome and just made the whole story even better than it already was Re Reading with New updated version for Blog Tour I am not even sure I can write a review that will do this book any justice I will say this book was Amazing,Beautifully written, Incredible Abi Offered this book to me to read and review and She told me flat out it was a very gritty book.t for the light hearted and she did not lie It de [...]

    30. Well first off I want to give a HUGE shout out to Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicciki They are two remarkable people and authors and they gave me the chance to read Branded before it was released and I have to say I am so happy they did This is the story of Lexi Hamilton and her fight to stay alive in the world that was falling apart around her She will not let them win and she will not let them take over her life she will fight Fifty years ago the Commander came into power and he decided the seven d [...]
