    1. Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies

      Even though I was very picky, wore only designer clothes, and had a monthly allowance bigger than what most people my age earned in a year, I was by no means a snob.Firstly: this book is a stupid, racist piece of shit. Secondly, it is a grand accomplishment that I could hate a character within pages of meeting her. Right after starting the book, I found out that our main character is rich, adored, and perfect. She gets straight As. She has parental-approved freedom to do whatever she wants. She [...]

      One word: WOW.I seriously didn't expect this to be so good. I thought I'd get an everyday run-of-the-mill mythology story featuring some unlucky ancient Egyptian schmuck, but what I got instead was an entertaining, refreshing, action-packed adventure that left me not only at the edge of my seat but also in tears and in stitches.By the end of the book, I thought of one thing and one thing only: where's the next book, I need an ancient Egyptian prince for a boyfriend, maybe if I get lucky I ca [...]

      Open the nearly iridescent cover of Houck’s latest and you’ll find her Twilightesque take on Egyptian mythology. Lily is your average cardboard cutout of a character that is meant for young female audiences to project themselves onto. She doesn’t have much to her other than having rich parents, frenemies, and overexplaining her every thought in so much detail as if to say, “I’m not a TSTL Mary Sue; I overanalyze everything so you think I’m smart when really just mediocre and boring.

      Review also onIf you answered a to all the items above, then congratulations you are Lilliana Young. If you answered b to all then you're me. There's no winning here folks.Lilliana Young finds herself in a bind after she accidentally meets Amon, an Egyptian prince of yore and the sun-god incarnate. Amon seeks Lilliana's help to reawaken his brothers and complete a ceremony. They go to Egypt where shit goes down. Of course, there's the hundred pages of fish-out-of-water in the modern world schtic [...]

      Okay, guys. Stop me if you’ve heard this story before.A teenage girl who believes herself to be plain and yet ‘not like the other girls’, is whisked off on a far-flung adventure with a mysterious, “exotic” prince who has found his way to America, with whom she has a cosmic connection in the pre-destined, soulmate kind of way. This girl is the only person in the whole world who is able to break the curse that has been placed upon our princely love interest, who has been trapped in a hel [...]

      How can people rate books when there isn't even a name and you haven't read it. She could be your favorite writer in the world and still manage to write a book that you don't like. It's beyond me how a book that's not even around has a 4.23 rating already.The name comment has finally become irrelevant two years later.

      Dear users,I've been studying Egyptian history/mythology since I was SIX. I remember how it started: first grade visit to the school's library. Next to the librarians desk was the nonfiction shelf. It was there that I discovered the Eyewitness book on Ancient Egypt. I was intrigued, so I checked it out, and thus began a mild obsession. Seriously, my parents had to forbid me from rechecking out books on Egypt. To be fair, I was six and there aren't that many books available in the kids' section. [...]

      To see review with gifs clickhere.Note: This letter would’ve been sent to Ms. Houck if I was a publisher. I’m not. I’m a cantankerous lawyer, who frequently wears Grumpy Cat t-shirts and has no problem telling people what assholes they are, especially after the last month I had. I especially like writing nasty letters. I think it’s my forte. Most people would not like to admit this. It should be noted that this letter is directed solely at Ms. Houck’s manuscript not her as a person. In [...]

      2.5 stars. I have been waiting for this book for what feels like forever. Now after reading it I feel so let down. It just didn't live up to my expectations, at all. I was looking forward to the Egyptian culture and mythology and I found none, it was all verybland. *sigh*I definitely like the Tiger series better! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------I WANT THIS BOOK NOW! NOW! NOW! I'm so excited!*Hyper happy dance* August 2015?! Seriously, that's too long to [...]

      Chapter-by-chapter review/recap on my blog, the Snark Theater.“No. You will not run away and you will not scream.”This about sums it up. And yeah, it's out of context, whatever, cut me some slack here.Reawakened is the story of a girl who finds a supernatural creature boy originating from a foreign culture, and has some adventures with said boy while they also fall in forbidden love. If it sounds like the same idea as Colleen Houck's other book Tiger's Curse it's because, from what I know ab [...]

      So, this was one of those books that I was dying to read. I waited so long, patiently, and I have finally read it.Honestly? Like, really honestly? I enjoyed it. But it just wasn'tenough. I wanted something more from the story. This book wasn't perfect, but I don't think it was bad either.Basically, this was very similar to the Tiger's Curse series. Writing down all the similarities would take me a while, which I don't really want to do, but just imagine Tiger's Curse and replace the tigers for m [...]

      Initial Thoughts:I liked the Egyptian mythology and how it was woven into the story seamlessly, but the cheese is strong with this one. Amon and Lillian are both 100% perfect and the annoying thing is that Lily complains constantly about her entitled little world. I wanted to slap her. But at least there was Amon, who is the epitome of a perfect book boyfriend. ---This review appears on Happy Indulgence! Check it out for more reviews.Actual Rating: 2.5When I was in primary school, I was obsessed [...]

    17. Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)

      Colleen Houck's novels are always so well written, so beautiful and enchanting that they are hard to resist. In fact, she is one of the few author's that I will pick up, knowing that a love triangle and drama and angst might ensue and still not care, because her writing simply overshadows all the rest.Her ability to weave mythology, romance, mystery, action, and adventure, all into one tale is truly breathtaking and her latest novel Reawakened was no exception.Where to begin with this? It was, s [...]

    18. Jen Ryland

      After 100 pages, I can tell this is not for me. Not crazy about the dynamic between Lily, the main character, and her time traveling Egyptian love interest -- she's spoiled and whiny, he's cheesy and weird. I've had this issue before with time travel romance -- when the love interest is from another time and/or place, the romance feels odd and stilted to me. I also have a history of issues with love interests who aren't human. While Amon was presumably human at one point, he's now a reanimated m [...]

      Hm, so I'm assuming this "Lilliana Young" is Asian, yes? Judging by her last name. And the "recently awakened mummy-turned-handsome-sun-god", yikes, if I'd have a choice, maybe I'll take the tiger. I mean, if you wanna kiss a mummy go ahead:

    20. Suzanne

      Now that was some really interesting mythology based reading! I haven't read too much on Egyptian mythology but I love when it is twisted to fit into modern times. I have book two with me from the library so I am going to start it very soon!

    21. Nikita

      Updated 8/17/2015:As a fan of Colleen Houck’s first series The Tiger Saga, I immediately wanted to read her new series. Reawakened is gripping, amazing, and exciting. During her spring break, Lily Young goes to the library where she awakens a thousand year old mummy named Amon. She then goes on a quest with him to find and awaken his brothers in order to complete a ceremony that will save mankind from the Dark God Seth. While Lily never expected to be chosen to help Amon, she also never expect [...]

    22. Kara

      I will read anything this wonderful author can write.The story follows another heroine who throughout the story meets challenges that she learns from and is utterly changed by. An epic love is not the main focus of the book, since the details of the adventure that this heroine is thrown into are the most prominent features of the book.If you read anything like me, this book will make you laugh, love, and scream in frustration as Colleen pulls yet another masterful cliff hanger on our asses. 10/1 [...]

      Girl whatever you do just don't touch Greek mythology. If you do, I'll personally drag you all the way down to the Underworld and throw you to the Cerberus.

    24. Nastassja

      Real rating 2.4The problem with Reawakened is that this book is not bad or good, it's just mediocre. When you start to read a book with an annotation like this one, you expect it to be full of adventures and breath taking action. But in this case there's nothing to hate for me and nothing to love. This book would be more entertaining as a movie, where you can enjoy the action without going deeper into the plot or characters. The first part of the book was rather entertaining for me and I felt at [...]

    25. Drew The Reviewer

      I have so many things to say about Reawakened. I really like this book. The mythology, action scenes, and writing are all terrific. I was interested in the story immediately after finishing the first chapter. There is something about this adventure that really hooked me.I have seen so many mixed reviews for this book. People are saying it is so similar to Houck's Tiger's Curse series and they are also saying that the mythology is racist/inaccurate. I haven't read the Tiger's Curse series so I ca [...]

    26. Natalie (Never trust a duck)

      Natalie's mind: "So much adventure. Want more, need more. Also, character growth happened. AND THE MYTHOLOGY"Natalie's fingers: "We wanna flip more pages that have the wonderful name Amon covering them."Natalie's heart: "Amon. Amon. Amon. Amon. Amon. Amon. Amon. Amon. Amon."The publishing world: "SUCKA. We will withhold a vital piece of your existence for another year. But we are always releasing more books that will introduce you to characters you'll fall in love with, but alas, you'll probably [...]

    27. Kogiopsis

      Ehhhh I know I said I'd give Houck's next project a try, buuuuut that was years ago and before I realized how appropriative her work was. Not to mention that this book sounds bland as fuck.Also - Amon?(I'm just saying, she could have used one of the alternate Romanizations of his name - Amun - though tbh picking the king of the gods as a love interest is never gonna be a good plan.)
