      Do you know a story that goes something like this >>>> There's a poor family consisting of a mother and her bunch of kids, each one from a different father. Then there's that one kid (or more) who had a dad who was known for causing trouble maybe he drank a lot, got into fights, ended up in prison you know the kid I'm talking about? The one who has that dad? Well, everyone expects he'll turn out just the same. Everyone has their eye on that kid his whole life, expecting him to become [...]

      I really enjoyed the first 50 pages and the last 50 pages, but everything in between was underwhelming. I'm going to do a full video review to share more of my thoughts, so look out for that! :)

      Basically about some emo kid. Plot Rundown:Nathan is the black sheep of the family. As everyone else is a White Witch, he's the “half-code”/black and white. Every witch receives three gifts on their seventeenth birthday, the same day they discover what their ability is. The question is, will he make it till then?As Black Witches are despised and hunted, Nathan knows something about himself many others don't. Though he has the demeanour of good, will he still be overcome with evil?As the coun [...]

      REREAD 2017:Well I'm pleased to say I'M STILL 50000% TRASH FOR THIS BOOK. I actually love it so much it physically pains my heart. So there you have it. (A) I do have feelings [just a few] and (B) it's so so good. I'm hit again by how much of a stream-of-consciousness feel it has. Like, we're not reading about Nathan. WE ARE NATHAN.

    6. Steph Sinclair on said:

      When I first picked this book up from BEA, I wasn't very interested because I saw the word "witches" and thought, "NOPE, NOPE, NOPE." Even in my review policy it states that I don't review books about witches. Why? Well, because of Harry Potter. I didn't want to sit and compare the two and I had a feeling that I would. What made matters worse was the fact that ended up being toted as The Next Big Thing from The Hunger Games to, you guessed it, Harry Potter. So it's a good thing this book was not [...]

      Unpopular opinion time Yay!I thought about giving this book 2 stars but who am I kidding? It was a torture to read it! I seriously have no idea how I got to the end. Oh wait, yes I have! I was actually waiting for something, anything, to happen! Plus, it promised meA world divided between black and white witches and those in the dark side are tortured and murdered. Almost all the black witches are nowhere to see but one. Since Nathan was a baby he is treated poorly by his family. The only kid fr [...]

      I wasn't expecting to like it but I actually found it really enjoyable and really quick! A nice surprise!

      Half Blood started as a 5-star read for me. This lasted 'til about three quarters which is when I realized we really hadn't gotten anywhere in the story. Boredom quickly followed, until I was unfortunately underwhelmed by the anticlimactic ending. Nevertheless, it's an incredibly well written book that has a lot to offer if you have a bit of patience, although it's unique in a way that may not adhere to all tastes. When we meet our protagonist, Nathan, he's naught but a young lad. Young and unfo [...]

      OMG OMG OMG !this book was super good! i loved it so very much! i am really loving the building of the characters and relationships! i hope in the next book magic will be seen more ! :D

    11. Regan on said:

      Half Bad follows a boy named Nathan, and Nathan lives in a world where good witches (white) and bad witches (black) exist. Nathan, however, is unique because he is half good and half bad, his father is the most notorious black witch alive and his mother is dead. Nathan lives a life facing constant prejudice from all sides, and he is just trying to survive until his 17th birthday so he can receive his 3 gifts and become a full fledged witch. I enjoyed this book overall, especially the first half. [...]

    12. Daniel Cohen on said:

      For me, something like "Half Bad" is very, very rare. I read a lot of fantasy, much of that lot from the contemporary masters of the field (Sanderson, Rothfuss, Williams, Rowling etc.) I have been well immersed in the fantasy genre, and as spoiled as it may sound, have come to expect greatness in the fantasy that I choose to read. I chanced across a copy of the "Half Bad" unedited manuscript at the 2013 BEA, and decided to take a chance. I was sufficiently and unexpectedly blown away. "Half Bad" [...]

      2.5, because oh, who am I fooling, it's a 2 and that's it.I'm sorry, but I'm afraid this review will be terribly short. The reason? Take the title and replace the word "Half" with "Totally". Here you have my review.But, as I'm sure you know by now, I wouldn't be at peace with myself if I didn't at least try to explain why.• The pace is off, off, off. Pages in which nothing happens, others in which the hell happens, but my attention is already drifting in a sea of "let's guess how much f**k I g [...]

    15. Darth J on said:

      This book read more like an overlong prologue than the actual first installment in a series. The whole thing is about the MC finally getting his powers, which he does at the end. I’m not even going to put that in a spoiler alert because it doesn’t need one. The book is very predictable so it also should come as no surprise that he gains them from his father, a *gasp* Black witch.I have a problem with these terms: “Black” and “White” witches. They aren’t clearly defined in the story [...]

      I can't believe it!I finally read this book! I've wanted to read it since the first time I saw it on here.And, I'm not disappointed, not one bit!The reason I'm giving this four stars is because while reading I actually felt like the author was very inspired by Harry Potter that her book was infected by the main idea behind it, but it was also completely different and very well executed!The storyline is amazing, I was feeling like crying every time I forced myself to close the book to sleep becau [...]

    18. Josu Grilli on said:

      Con una trama que puede sonar típica, Sally Green presenta un personaje principal realmente bien construido y una historia que al final, es más profunda de lo que parece. Al ser una relectura, recordaba ciertas cosas que me marcaron. Aun y todo, había pasajes de los cuales no recordaba nada y que me han impactado igual. La autora no tiene pelos en la lengua y habla de torturas y sangre sin importarle nada (y bien que hace, oye). El estilo, sin embargo, es lo que consigue que El lado oscuro se [...]

    19. Sarah on said:

      2.5 starsThis started out strangely, continued that way for a while, then went really downhill.Nathan was someone that I immediately felt quite sorry for. The way his mother , siblings, in fact everyone treated him from the time he was a new-born was just disgusting and awful. How anyone can treat a poor defenceless baby that way I don’t know. Poor Nathan just got tormented, put down, and generally mistreated his entire life.This book for me seemed to be about racism? I might have that wrong, [...]

      buddy read with my fav, Christine :)i don't think i've ever seen such mixed reviews?and it's not even like people who just hate it or love it- there's literally a perfect mix of 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 stars? weird but anyway, not reading any reviews so i don't get spoiled or become biased~*~wish us luck!!- - - - - HI WHERES BOOK TWOsO many questions

      *4.5*I love how original and unique this book is! The writing style is so cool and I really like how the timeline is set up. The main character Nathan is great, he is just a fighter and never gives up. He goes through some absolutely terrible things, but he always has hope and keeps control of his mind. His journey is so intriguing and interesting, I just had to keep reading to know more.The world is also great because I felt everything is explained nicely and it's not very confusing. I like the [...]

      For some parts I was likeBy the endI was not wowed by this one. I think it started of well and towards the middle it got boring. Only like the last 25% of the book at the end was a bit enjoyable. I think what lacked for me was the world building. All that we find out is the catagories of witches and their abilities and oh yeah there is no magic. It's a bit plotless.I know I said I appreciated the language but by 30% into the book I started to get annoyed by it. Yeah it bit me in the back! I also [...]

      *3.5/5 I had some issues with this first book, but I'm excited to see where the series goes!

    24. Faye, la Patata on said:

      If there's anything Half Bad by Sally Green has, it's definitely an interesting and intriguing premise. Now, let me tell you it's hard to make me excited for any Paranormal book, but that's simply because I hold this particular genre in very low regard. I am not a fan of it, not by a long shot, but having been proven wrong again and again by such spectacular PNR books (Written in Red and The Diviners), I will not say "no" to one that has been deemed great by my peers, and especially not to this [...]

Wow. Anyways, this was such a beautiful, beautiful book. My heart pains to see that it’s so good and yet so underrated!

      I finished this I believe over the weekend? I can’t remember 100% all I can’t remember is that I’m not really sure how I felt on it? Sure, there are some good bits but there are also bits that I just really didn’t list.Shall we go for a list?Everyone loves a list and I think that’s the only way I’m going to be able to get my feelings across.❇️ the relationship between Nathan and his half-brother is lovely to see, it’s touching and kind and it’s obvious that the two have a str [...]

      It took me a shamefully long time to finish this book for me, because I kept getting distracted by things Things I truthfully don't wanna admit. But anyway, onto my review for this book. When I first started reading Half bad, this book was nothing like what I had been expecting, and in truth, this book is in that certain, particular style that I just don't like. The writing style was kinda basic, and it also kind of jumped from first person to second person all the time. In all honesty, this boo [...]

      This will become your new obsession come March. Trust.Between this and Red Rising the SFF YA landscape is changing, and for the better. It will be hard for me read other YA novels this year that do not live up to this level of storytelling and craftsmanship and I imagine my DNF list to grow exponentially because of it.Half Bad is as good, if not better, than most of the adult fantasy I read. Think Sanderson, Rothfuss, Weeks, Ryan, etc. This book is excellent and I have no doubt that it will beco [...]

      Se la saga di Harry Potter fosse una foto a colori, Half Bad sarebbe il negativo.Siamo di fronte all'ennesima dimostrazione che HP è ormai un canone e che chiunque ci può giocare sopra ricombinando gli elementi.Detto questo, ho trovato un mondo perfettamente 'potteriano': elementi magici, famiglie magiche (qui 'incanti') mischiate a babbani ( qui 'profani'); e mezzosangue invisi a una parte della comunità magica. I cattivi sono perseguitati dagli Auror (qui 'cacciatori').Abbiamo l'orfano pred [...]

      The downfall of this book is its lackluster plot. I quite liked the story in the beginning - the cage, the brutality, the freshness of the narrator's voice (oh yes, this boy IS half bad). But as the book went on, the limitations of the plot revealed themselves - imagine Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and all the running around and hiding, but without the friendships, the deep back story and the big showdown in the end. What's left is a lot of going from one place to another and meeting var [...]
