    One thought on “Wild Roses”

    1. Maybe love too is beautiful because it has a wildness that cannot be tamed. I don’t know All I know is that passion can take you up like a house of cards in a tornado leaving destruction in its wake. Or, it can let you alone because you have built a stone wall against it set out the armed guards to keep it from touching you. The real trick is to let it in, but to hold on. To understand that the heart is as vast and as wide as the universe. But that we come to know it from here. This place of g [...]

    2. Eh. I just couldn't get into this one. I don't know if it was just too much Deb Caletti too soon or if it is just not really good. Caletti also has this weird thing in all her books where the girl sees a boy and immediately falls in love with him and then the boy and girl are magically (but for really) making out and pledge to be together forever. The boys are all pretty bland and not much (if any) conversation seems to take place between boy and girl before the making out and love pledging. It' [...]

    3. I can honestly say that I hated Wild Roses by Deb Caletti. This novel is about seventeen year-old Cassie Morgan, a girl who divides her time between her divorced parents' houses. Her mother married Dino Cavalli, renowned Italian violinist- who happens to be mean, critical, and paranoid. The story is told from Cassie's point of view. The story is narrated with forced sarcasm and is filled to the brim with nauseating clichés and metaphors. Caletti tries hard to make Cassie seem like a typical tee [...]

    4. Where do I begin? Wild Roses was a book I had never heard of until I had received a mashup with two Deb Caletti books. I had heard of Deb Caletti, but only knew about some of her most talked about books. After having done some research, I found that this one really isn't that well known compared to other books. Which I am assuming is why it was republished into this new mashup.Having never heard anything about it, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I had checked out reviews on it befor [...]

    5. The only reason I gave this more than one star is because I like Cassie's wit. (Her dad and grandmother are fun, too. As are Chuck and Bunny.) Other than that I just didn't care. I didn't care whether or not Ian made it into that school, I didn't care what was happening to Dino Cavalli (who is so damn unlikeable I almost couldn't stand it), I just didn't CARE. I knew Cassie was scared, because she told me 800 times, but I didn't FEEL it. I didn't feel anything but irritation throughout the whole [...]

    6. if anyone's looking for a 'love story'; dont read this it doesnt do the genre any justiceis is the second book that ive ever read that i just didnt like. i get what deb was trying to do but she didnt do a very good jobe whole first chapter is just the heroine yammerin on about insanity and whatever for 14 pages. i had to fight the urge to throw the book across the room and just re-read on of my better books; and keep reading! it wasnt something that grabbed you and held you there. you had to rea [...]

    7. 4.5 stars!!!~I ordered this on amazon right after hearing someone rave about it (and Deb Caletti in general) so needless to say when I saw that beautiful package waiting for me on my doorstep, I dove right into it. Before I get into the actual review, it should be known that i had extreeeemely high expectations for this book, so that may influence what I'm about to say (for the better and/or for the worst) but all in all, I really did enjoy this!!.~Wild Roses deals with a lot difficult issues (a [...]

    8. More reviews @ my blog: Jules BookshelfMY OPINION:One word to describe Wild Roses would be cheezy. As well as boring, slow, and irritating. Harsh, yes. But true. At least for me.Cassie is having a hard time. She's falling, but its with a wrong person, and at the wrong time. Cassie's seeing things that are totally different with Dino, her stepfather. How could this affect her mother, her father, and her new found love?Please note how I accentuated "love", because for me, what happened with Cas [...]

    9. Before this I've only read another book by Deb Caletti (The Nature of Jade), and it was just okay. Thankfully, I liked this one much much better. This book was about Cassie Morgan, who has divorced parents, and a step-father who is a famous violinst. To the outside world, Dino may seem like a genius musician and composer from a small town in Italy, but Cassie knows the truth. Dino is a terrifying, selfish, insane bully, who just gets crazier and more paranoid every day. Cassie can't imagine why [...]

    10. Category: None.After reading Honey, Baby, Sweetheart(a novel by Deb Caletti) I wanted to read more of her books. This story was alot different to the first book of hers, but again had me amazed and sent a strong message. I loved that the book captured me within the first few sentences. If you have a deep love for really meaningful stories then Deb Caletti books are the ones for you. I enjoyed this book because it captivated me in this whole different world where young teenagers suffer but find a [...]

    11. I am finally done ugh this was just not the book for me. I deserve an award for finishing this, I wanted to drop this book so many times. Let me just stop now before I go into a review that only has bad things to say about this book. There's not even one nice thing to mention honestly, I just couldn't like this.

    12. Wild Roses is about Cassie Morgan, a high school student whose parents are divorced. Her mother, a musician, has married a great violin player named Dino Cavalli. Dino is somewhat of a bully, saying harsh words to Cassie and her mother when he gets in a bad mood and slamming doors and throwing things. But then things get strange. Dino becomes paranoid, thinking his former manager has come to destroy his career. At the same time, Dino has taken a student Ian Waters whom Cassie falls in love with. [...]

    13. I think its Horrible! I even couldn't finnish it to the end because I felt bored! Waste of Money on a bad written story.-------------------------------------------------------I have finnished reading it. My decision about it didn't change. I don't recommend it to everyone. The plot is absolutly bad. The first 300 pages is rubbish. Tells you the same thing over and over again. Just in the end, something happens and changes the actions of the characters. If you want to waste your time reading abou [...]

    14. Honestly I'm not a fan of this book. I'm not gonna say much but it makes people who suffer from depression look like paranoid assholes and I mean based on his behaviour and symptoms I think Dino had more than that. The whole romance aspect of this book is pretty inaccurate as well. It's kind of a 'immediately fall in love skip to making out kind of thing'. Very unrealistic. No one builds that kind of bond and behaves that way with someone they barely know. There are some good parts of this I gue [...]

    15. So very, very terrible. This book was written poorly. The story rambled on about stupid,boring junk that know one really cares about. I hate reading books, when the character is so unlikable. The author tried to make her act cool, but the girl just turned out annoying. To tell you the truth the plot was just stupid.ke a first grader made it up. Just don't read the book. I mean, where does the title come in. This book has nothing to do with a rose. Roses are pretty and gentle and sweet etc. etc. [...]

    16. This is a YA author that writes with surprising depth. Each one of her novels surprises me with the theme and characters. when I was first told of her work, it was with a number of other authors whose work I enjoy, but who are a little more prosaic. At first Ms Caletti surprised by by how good her books were. Now she surprises me because I cannot believe that all her books are that good. she is on my must buy/must read list. This book is all about the fine edge between genius and madness, love a [...]

    17. I always find love at first sight uncompelling, but it was an enjoyable read that kept me turning pages. Unlike the main characters, however, my persistence wasn't motivated by the love affair, but by the other plot layers Caletti used to give the story some depth.The characters were believable, the plot good, and the love story heartwarming, if initially a little hard to believe. I liked it, though, ultimately.

    18. I loved this book for its humor, good writing and snarky character. I hated this book because of the s#%* and f@!# words throughout. A LOT of swearing! It would have been one of my favorite books if those words weren't consistently thrown in my face. It also would have been more appropriate for a teenager to read. Now I feel like I can't recommend it to any of my nieces. Darn! Was the author raised by a Marine or something?

    19. Wasn't her best but it was still a good book. Deb Caletti is just an amazing author, so it was really well written and all that. It was a little slow to start off, but it got a lot better. its different than any of her other books that she has written so it was good! read it!!!

    20. I couldn't do it I've tried in the past to read Deb Caletti's books and sometimes I succeed but sometimes I fail miserably and can't take it anymore. I'm sorry, I just couldn't take it anymore but really I'm not sorry.

    21. She falls in love with this guy that her step-dad is teaching to play violin. He has to go away to some college to earn money for his family and her heart is broken.

    22. DNF. I refuse to continue reading a book when I want nothing more than to punch the main character in the face. I hate this stupid girl and her stupid instalove.

    23. Even though this book is written for the teen genre, I found it very enjoyable. This book was an easy read about Cassie, a 17 year old , who lives with her mother and her paranoid, schizophrenic stepfather Dino, who also happens to be a renowned violinist. Dino takes on a student named Ian and it becomes an instant connection Cassie and Ian much to the chagrin of Dino who wants to control everything and everyone. Dino really is a walking time bomb and matters just go downhill and Cassie begins t [...]

    24. This is the first Deb Caletti novel that I have read. I enjoyed Caletti's writing in this novel; it was raw, honest, and made me relive parts of my childhood and teenage years that I would rather forget. However, I found the narrator and main character to be rather forgettable. She was consumed by everyone around her, and while I think this may have been a conscious choice, made the book and ending feel a bit hollow. It also made me feel mad anxious. In short, great writing - it's just not for m [...]

    25. Article first published as Book Review: Wild Roses by Deb Caletti on Blogcritics. Wild Roses tells the story of 17-year old Cassie Morgan, and the way she and her mother handle living with a temperamental and, at times, almost insane musician. Dino Cavalli is a world-renowned violinist, and he’s also Cassie’s stepfather. At first, he seems like only a bully and an egomaniac, but when he goes off his medication because it blocks his creativity, he becomes manic, paranoid, and destructive. Whi [...]

    26. ~2/5I’ve read two other books by Caletti, one of which I really enjoyed (the Nature of Jade) and one of which I thought was more meh (the Queen of Everything), and this one ended up being rather below meh, and a very big disappointment since I had thought it would be very good.Cassie Morgan lives with her mother and her mother’s new husband, Dino. Dino is a genius musical composer, and he’s going literally crazy. He’s beyond paranoid, sometimes goes a bit off the deep end for very little [...]

    27. Wild Roses is the story of seventeen year old Cassie who’s home life has become challenging since her mother left her father and married a mentally unbalanced violinist. Her stepfather is constantly cruel, being around him is kind of like trying to avoid broken glass with bare feet, and his animosity towards Cassie only increases when she falls for his student, a situation he is entirely against. Cassie’s attitude towards her stepfather’s mental illness could be offensive to some readers, [...]
