BOOK REVIEW: THE TESTING by Joelle Charbonneau

The Testing (The Testing, #1)The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Testing is an okay book for me. The concept of the story was nice. I could’ve appreciated it more if the author added more tension in it. Though, she really did great in making me feel paranoid alongside with the main character – Cia. Those moments when she basically doubted every single thing that surrounds them, just oh gosh! I thought my mind’s going to explode with the way she was thinking. LOL

Cia-Tomas relationship: It was kinda cute. Both from the same colony and both in the same circumstances, who’s trying to survive every test thrown in their way. And how their minds think alike is just an awww moment for me – especially when they checked the stuff they got for the Part 4 of The Testing. But in all seriousness, the way they analyze the different situations presented, I think is the factor which makes them look so bad-ass (imagines myself inside their brain - @_@). Lastly, I could’ve used a little more depth in the back story of their relationship before they went into kissy kissy with each other.

THE WTF moment: Like what the hell?! I just didn’t expect him (not going to mention the name here) to be the crossbow shooter. I really like his character from the moment he made an appearance in the book and now that happened. UGHHH! And that Tomas is obviously hiding something from Cia and she thinks it’s in connection with Zandri’s death … HELP!

ANYWAYS. Am I going to read The Testing: Independent Study? Yeah, definitely! I want to know what’ll happen next to these characters during their stay in the University. I think there’ll be so much going on in the following book because of how The Testing ended. With Cia …

Oh before I end this post, I just want to share this - The fact that I get to share my second name – Nicolette, with a fictional character and then she dies towards to the end of the book, not good. -_-“
