I’m glad I was too lazy to get up and turn this audiobook off. At first I was not impressed and I still really don’t like the main character. She's snotty, and doesn’t give other people or ideas a chance. This book felt like it started in the middle and left a little to be desired. But once through the first two hours or so the book gets interesting and enjoyable. However, it seems to never end. When you think you have come to the perfect end, it goes on more. For example the mystery of the money, totally had the one figured out. But on a 14 hour audiobook it only came in to play the last 2-3 hours and then it was mostly the main characters mad at each other, one for being accused, and one for theft. Overall I did enjoy the book, but it is not one I would read/listen to over and over again. Like I said at the beginning, it’s a fluke. I even finished it.

my only problem with this book was prudence. every time i thought prudence was getting better and learning to look at circumstances from others’ perspectives, she was suddenly terrible again. nevertheless, she finally learned her lesson at the end of the book, and the rest of the book made dealing with her worth it.

I remember first seeing hints at this book from the book-themed Instagram feed I've set up for myself and it lived up to my expectations! This is a sweet summer love story with an insight into what animal rescue means. The hate-to-love trope is clearly the biggest plotline throughout the story, but you also get to see sibling relationship mending, purpose learning, and judgment forgiving. Plus, I learned how to sing karaoke the best way.

I'd recommend this to fans of YA romance, especially those with an interest in sea creatures. Basically, if you like the pictures of baby turtles and sea lions, you'll like this book. And even if the sea creature grab isn't what interests you, you'll like the Beatles references and magic of the instant karma. I was glad I finally got a chance to read this one :) ( )

I really wanted to like this one - especially since it's narrated by Rebecca Soler - but Prudence was the worst. I have a hard time enjoying books with unlikable main characters, which is why I think I struggled so much with Instant Karma. Pru is unbelievably selfish and self-absorbed, and she really only cares about herself and her twin (Jude). She's super judgmental, thinks she can do no wrong, and even when she's doing something nice there's an ulterior motive.

I stopped reading this one when she refused to play with her younger sister, and actually considered "using her powers" against her family because they were annoying her. We've all been driven insane by family members, but Pru knew her powers could've had serious consequences. I can't believe she entertained the idea even for a second. I understand that she's a focused and determined person, but I read nearly half of this book without seeing much character growth.

The Lunar Chronicles is one of my all-time favorite series, so I hate that this one didn't work for me. I honestly think Prudence was just too angsty, too self-righteous, and too UGH. She wasn't someone I wanted to root for, and I never felt compelled to continue reading her story. I wish she'd had some major epiphanies early on, or at least had something happen to make her question how she treated others. (★★☆☆☆)

It took me a little while to get into this one, but about halfway through, I found myself really enjoying the story, the romance between Pru and Quint, their arguments, and the adventures rescuing sea animals. Towards the start of this book, when Pru is suddenly gifted with the ability to deploy karma on those around her, she struck me as a bit too judgmental. This is certainly an aspect of her character which changes throughout the course of the book, but it made the first few chapters a little harder to get through. Once Pru picks up her volunteering job at the rescue center with Quint, however, the story picks up and I started to really like this story. Marissa Meyer is clearly a very talented writer and while I still like her fantasy novels more, I did like this book a lot more than I anticipated. ( )
