Better than expected...LOVED it!

I was, when I first stumbled upon Aurelia, unsure of whether I would want to read it. I was afraid it would be too adult or something. But, t wasn't. It's the perfect book for preteens and teenagers alike, and I loved evry minute of it. It's got the mystery (By the way, can I just saw WHOA.), the romance, the adventure, the not-so-helpless princess who I think mirrors how most girls would feel in her situation. Aurelia is not one to sit by and let people take advantage of her, but she's not perfect either, and she hides her hurt. I believe that Aurelia was a realistic character readers can both relate to and love.

ebook format leaves a lot to be desired

First of all, the story itself was ok - it was fairly predictable, but interesting enough. Overall, I wouldn't say it was worth the ebook pricing, but it was an okay enough read.

First of all, the story itself was ok - it was fairly predictable, but interesting enough. Overall, I wouldn't say it was worth the ebook pricing, but it was an okay enough read.

I bought this as an ebook and the formatting was truly horrible. Many character's names weren't capitalized, the beginning of a sentence was often left uncapitalized. There were odd symbols scattered throughout the text. I haven't ever had an ebook that was like this, but it made it incredibly jarring to read. My overall experience was poor because it became a chore just to read the book. I would only recommend the book if you don't mind a lot of errors and a mediocre story.

    Had a great main idea and point but is the only book I regret reading.

    Aurelia by Anne Osterlund is okay. I loved the idea of princess caught in a mystery and has someone trying to kill her. I loved her connection with the boy and their chemistry but I guess there was not enough. I wanted to feel as though they had a strong connection. Like when they kissed, i wanted it to feel as though they felt electricity, but they didnt. Its almost like they were still JUST FRIENDS. Then the most DISAPPOINTING PART was the slowness of it. I had to FORCE myself to finish it since I have never left a book unfinished, and that really isnt good since the book isnt long. It took too long for something to happen, however when something finally did, it was good and exciting but that didnt last very long. Aurelia is an amazing girl and I liked her character, but the book overall was not the best. I would have preferred reading a 10 or 20 page summary of it.
