i really do like lauren destefano's writing. i just don't think the massive task that is dystopian worldbuilding is something she was meant to do.that being said, what i'd REALLY like to see from her is a non-dystopian STANDALONE. something in which she can focus on the characters and not on the high! stakes!also series may have a $$$ factor behind them, but that every single freakin thing has to be part of a trilogy these days bugs me so much. they're paced too far apart that by the time i crack open the next instalment i've already lost any interest i had in the characters.
