BookTitle: My Ex From Hell

Author: Tellulah Darling

Ease: Moderate

Rating: 3/5

My Ex From Hell is the first book in the Blooming Goddess Trilogy. In this book we meet Sophie Bloom and she’s about to learn one hell of a secret about herself.

Darling peppers her novel with humour, wit and references to popular culture. Using the Ancient Greek mythology of Persephone, Goddess of Spring and Kyrillos, son of Hades, as a background she begins a war between humans and the Gods, with a reluctant Goddess as the heroine.

Unfortunately, I found that many of the characters were two – dimensional. Sophie’s best-friend  Hannah never shakes off her beautiful-brainiac caricature. Bethany is nothing more than a self-absorbed, superficial, bully. While I found the book entertaining,  I didn’t care overly much about any of the characters. Perhaps Darling is going to flesh them out in the rest of the series but I don’t know if I can be bothered reading on.


I'm an educator, mum and wife living in beautiful Victoria, Australia. I make learning resources for passionate, but time-poor, teachers in need of a better work-life balance. I'm a voracious reader, love a good curry, and believe life is always better with chocolate.
