  1. I don t want to be just a weapon, Kaitlyn said firmly I want to be a solution, I am a huge fan of Julia Crane s work, with writing that always flows really nicely and characters that I always get attached to, it would be hard for me to not love something she comes out with When she warned me that Freak of Nature was different than her norm, I was a little nervous going into it I was worried I wouldn t like it as much as her past novels, I am happy to report though, that Freak of Nature was amazi [...]


  2. I received this book in return for an honest review via Netgalley You can also see a copy of this review, and others, on my blog, thisisjustabookblog.tumblr The blurb of this book kind of reminded me of Mila 2.0, and actually brought up the idea of Cinder a cyborg that s treated as a second class citizen However, this book didn t really turn out how I expected, and I was quite disappointed, to be honest Unfortunately, this book reads just like many of the independent books I ve read The writing [...]


  3. This book is free on ibook YAY It looks awesome I ve heard great things about it I will give it a shot soon, you should too Update I read it I didn t like it as much as I expected to like it, but oh well I found it a bit too cheesy for me The good guy and the naive girl seems to appeal to a lot of people, but not me I like bad boys, different couples, strong personalities and a lot of things like that, haha I liked the plot, it was a good idea I also liked the revelations, the memories, but not [...]


  4. Freak of Nature has a cool cover, I ll give it that The premise sounded interesting, too Unfortunately, that is where the compliments end The whole story felt forced to me, and the main character was a bit angsty for a robot The whole romance thing was so stupid For once, I d like to read a story that wasn t about that Can t we just have a kick ass girl that doesn t swoon and ache for a guy I think this could have been a good story if the main character slowly went from being robotic to human, [...]


  5. 2.5 Stars averageI was drawn to this book because of the very interesting premise and the equally interesting cover I was left than a little disappointed There were so many things this book could have been Exciting, emotional, and meaningful Unfortunately, there were many flaws that got in the way with that.The flaws Kaitlyn is supposedly highly advanced physically and intellectually Awhile the reader is certainly able to see how advanced she is physically we are only told that Kaitlyn is intel [...]


  6. I ll start off by telling you if you haven t read a book written by Julia Crane, you are missing out This lady has got the goods Obviously, after saying that, I had high expectations, and boy oh by, were they met How could you possibly think I m beautiful I m repulsive a freak of nature From the minute I met Kate, I felt her loneliness, confusion and sadness Not only those emotions though I felt her kindness adored her inquisitive nature Being the first Freak of Nature aka cyborg half human, hal [...]


  7. Read it on my blog, in both English and Romaniannillamoonblog 2013 01 27Actual rating 3.5 5I would like to start this review by thanking Lizzy Ford, who gifted me this ebook on Without her, I wouldn t have discovered this great series and author.I usually know right from the start when I m holding a good book in my hand or a Kindle with a great ebook on the screen I was hooked right from the very first pages Kaitlyn is a very intriguing character, after all she s half human, half robot The most [...]


  8. I have no idea how to review this book without being mean After slogging through nearly three hundred pages, I m cranky and exhausted I feel like I wasted my time, and I feel disrespected as a reader This book never should have been published Had I paid any money for it, this review likely would have been full of swearing as it is, I m having a hard time trying to stay polite.Please, dear author, I want some There is absolutely nothing I like about this book I didn t go into it thinking I was go [...]


  9. Source I won a digital copy of this book Thanks to author Julia Crane 17 year old Kaitlyn was in an accident, and ended up getting turned into some kind of half human, half robotic freak.Kaitlyn does have some emotions, and she thinks that Lucas one of the boys who works with her, is hot She also knows the lab doesn t feel like home, but she doesn t know where home is.Where is home for Kaitlyn How can she feel something for Lucas when she s mostly robot And will her life ever be her own I wanted [...]


  10. How far I got 16%I don t usually stop reading a book so early, but I just can t continue This book is chalk full of mistakes and it feels as though nobody even proofread it Seriously I mean, they can t even get the narration straight It is told in third person narration, but look at this quote A part of Kaitlyn was curious to find out about her past, but another part didn t want to know What good would it do to find out she had family and friends who thought she was dead It wasn t like she coul [...]


  11. I received a ARC copy of Freak of Nature by Julia Crane In my opinion this was her best book to date It is considered NA instead of the usual YA that she usually writes but it was done emotionally and beautifully I feel in love with each and every character in the story Kaitlyn was a character that you watched bloom from a cyborg freak of nature into a young woman falling in love with Lucas and wants her previous life death not to be in vain Lucas starts out as one of her creators but through th [...]


  12. This review and other cool stuff can also be found on addicted2heroines 2013 I was drawn to the book by the cool cover I mean, how can you not love that You can t Really, great job to whoever came up with it.As for what s inside Well, it was entertaining enough for me to want to finish it which is my personal requirement to earn three stars , but it was missing that something that makes a story awesome There s a lot of moral ambiguity in the characters, which kind of makes it hard to love or hat [...]


  13. I honestly wish that I could give this book than 2 stars I ve never had this dilemma where I feel that a book has so much potential but it just isn t reached I adore sci fi Terminator is one of my all time favorite movies Hell, wrap me up Sam Worthington from Terminator Salvation in a bow But, I digress The cover of this book captivated me, as did the synopsis Kaitlyn is a great character She basically has been turned into a cyborg after donating her body to science The conflict in her, human e [...]


  14. The premise of the story is great Yet the story didn t grab me quite like I had hoped Not that it was bad I still enjoyed it but I far from loved it My main issue was Kaitlyn I felt strangely detached from her She was created to not have emotions or feelings yet she does but how that came across to me as a reader was empty I didn t feel much curiosity and for all she is suppose to feel and understand she goes along with what everyone else tells her WAY to easily So I got no distinct personality [...]


  15. Freak of NatureBy Julia Crane The world is the same as it has always been but one split second decision could change everything one choice to check one box will undeniably change your life Freak of Nature allows you to venture with Kaitlyn, the world s first cyborg When she checked the box while getting her drivers license stating she would donate her body for science, she never thought it could actually happen to her Kaitlyn had died and she had no idea how or why but the people who have added [...]


  16. The moment I set my eyes on that cover, I knew I had to read it Yes, I am cover crazy like that Good thing is that the book did not disappoint.This book had me hooked from the very first page What got my attention was the really innovative and mind boggling plot It sparked an interest in me instantly I finished reading this book in less than two days as I couldn t pull myself away from it.Another brilliant work on the author s part was the attention to minute details which I heartily applaud Wri [...]



  17. After reading reviewI received this book in return for an honest review via Netgalley.I m sorry book, but you did nothing to save your self from the one star doom other than give me and stupidity to rant about.If you re looking for a sci fi book about cyborgs, robotics and you know deep and meaningful stuff about the blurring line distinction between what is human and what is not then stay away from this book since it s 10% attempt to try and make this sci fi and 90% about the insta lust, uh I [...]


  18. I thought Freak of Nature was overall very enjoyable It is easy to read and has a unique idea but is still simple enough It focuses a lot on the romance, which I was absolutely looking forward to going into this I definitely found myself enjoying this less as it went on It got a little unrealistic and the romance fell flat at that point but I still thought the ending was well done I won t be continuing the series as I am not that invested and this definitely had an ending that was satisfying eno [...]


  19. Excuse me while I run around my house and share awesome scenes of this book with my brotherThis book was incredible I nearly passed it up because it fell in the doomed category of New Adult, which if I m being honest has become saturated with so much cliches and tropes that I have started to lose faith in it Well, then Freak of Nature came along This story was amazing To the point where I believe I read this in total for about 12 hours I had to sleep don t judge me The story line flowed effortle [...]


  20. Julia Crane has created magic, again in her introduction to her new series, IFICS While still a Young Adult novel, there is a disclaimer saying it is for mature teens, nothing graphic, but probably a good warning.A vibrant seventeen year old girl has checked the box saying she wants her body donated to science if anything happens to her, never thinking she would become a science project for a group trying to develop cyborgs From page one, after Kaitlyn wakes up to find herself half human, half m [...]


  21. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley.It has taken me several years just to read this book but I finally got around to it The cover is fantastic But sometimes with a nice cover comes a bad book.Apparently, others disliked this book I can see why but I ended up liking it I don t know, I guess I m strange I do think the book needed some polishing I think Crane needed to add information to her story I was able to follow that Katelyn is a human turned robot I pictured of a Robocop type I [...]


  22. This book was amazing I wasn t really sure what to expect when I started reading it but I soon found out Freak of Nature was my second Julia Crane book and Julia is quickly becoming an author who s books are making an amazing impression on me This book was so original I have never read anything like it before and this is what made me love it The plot held my interest and I zoomed through it The plot had quite a bit of action in it and I also loved the development of it Kaitlyn was the main chara [...]


  23. 4.5 Stars I ve heard that cyborgs are this new kind of trend thing in YA literature, but I d never really read anything about them But when I saw this cover, I knew I had to get my hands on this book.Kaitlyn is half woman, half robot, and what no one else knows She s still got her human emotions And Lucas, the man who has taken care of her since her creation, feels guilty for taking her humanity away the love story here is so interesting I loved having both sides of the story from Kaitlyn and Lu [...]


  24. ARC received via Netgalley A great cover and a good story who made me want to read some This is the first book of Julia Crane and I am definitely curious about her other writings after reading Freak of Nature Kaitlyn is a science project When she agreed to donate her body to science when she ll die, she never thought about these consequences She s still alive, but different She lives in a boring laboratory or in a cell if you prefer, cameras are watching her at all moments She s evolving into a [...]


  25. I received a copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review I didn t like this one, it was boring.The main character, Kaitlyn, was a really boring character.She really was a robot She talked like one, thought like one, and most of the time, acted like one The way Kaitlyn talked reminded me of my year ten science teacher His voice always stayed on one boring level, and would even make i won one million pounds sound depressing Every time Kaitlyn said something, i felt really sleepy.The roma [...]



  26. Nope, nope, nope, noooope Trigger Warnings for rape.I don t even know where to start with this book Ok, let s start with the story itself Girl gets turned into a robot well, half a robot, though I was never sure what of her was the robot and what wasn t but surprise, surprise, she still has feelings Somehow, she decides that she needs to hide those feelings otherwise the scientist will take them away from her Ok, that makes sense However, some chapters after that, we are told that her friend Que [...]


  27. Quote This The world is the same as it has always been but one split second decision could change everything one choice to check one box will undeniably change your life I used to watch this show called The Sarah Conner Chronicles For those of you that are Terminator fans, I m sure you ve either heard of it, or watched it for yourself On this show was a girl named Cameron She was a Terminator aka a robot and her soul purpose in life was to protect one human who would eventually save the world wh [...]


  28. Freak of Nature is ebook only and very short only 167 pages Unfortunately, it felt a lot longer I like this book, but it suffered from a lack of action and it s a part of a series that doesn t need to exist wow that s pretty mean this isn t as horrible as it sounds.This book is about a cyborg named Kaitlyn She used to be a human girl, but has no memories of her life outside of the lab where she s being kept She s retained her human emotions and autonomy despite the scientists best efforts and ha [...]
