#BookReview The Thousand Year Curse by Taylor Lavati #PNR #YoungAdult @taylorjlavati

Being a teenager isn't all fun and games for seventeen year old Ryder. After being thrown down the social hierarchy, Ryder Mason has one goal for her senior year- survive.

Within the first month of school, Ryder goes from bullied teen to a cursed half goddess with two boyfriends. As if that wasn't enough, she travels into the Underworld to confront Hades about the curse and her missing mother.

Ryder delves head first into a Godly world as her two knights fight to seek her approval, her best friend's loyalties are tested and people's true intentions are shown in the first Curse Books novel.

There’s something about a YA book that always reminds me that everything in the universe should be focused on the individual teenager. No matter what is going on outside of their world, they have centralized everything. In this case Ryder is correct to do so because her world is about to get rocked with some incredible life changing revelations.

The combination of teenage angst, loves that are pure and deep and transcend time, stories about the Greek gods, and a whole lot of paranormal occurrences make for a very engaging story. I kept going back and forth about which love interest Ryder should pick. They both had their pros and cons. In the end I knew who I wanted her to end up with.

My only annoyance with this book was that it wasn’t a stand alone so I’ll have to wait for another two books in order to learn what happens to the curse and who Ryder ends up with. The good part is that all of the books have been released and are ready for my reading pleasure.
