Good Points
I kind of love books that are messed up and disturbing and gritty and downright strange at some points. Velveteen by Daniel Marks is no exception. Velveteen is full of strange, rude, messed up characters that you kind of can’t help but get attached to, not to mention an interesting storyline that is certainly unlike anything else I’ve ever read.

Velvet was an interesting protagonist, that’s for sure. She was so likeably unlikable, it’s hard for me to explain. And she felt very genuine, which was awesome. I’m always curious to see how male authors write female protagonists and vice versa, and I think Daniel Marks pulled it off very well in Velveteen.

And I seriously loved Nick. That is all I have to say about that.

Velveteen by Daniel Marks isn’t my typical read. I don’t usually do paranormal, and as much as I love disturbing and weird books, I don’t usually gravitate towards them. But I genuinely really enjoyed Velveteen by Daniel Marks. It was something different and weird and original and creepy.
