I gave this book 2 stars (it was ok) even though it wasn’t ok for me because I didn’t really like it at all. But there wasn’t anything fundamentally wrong with it except for the simple fact that it wasn’t for me. There was pretty much nothing happening for the first 3/4 of the book except a bunch of music jargon – all stuff about bands/singers I either a) don’t like, b) don’t give an ass rat’s about, or c) […]

I had absolutely no idea that this book was in verse until I read a review for it a week or two ago, and by that time I had already requested it from the library. I’m glad I didn’t know, because I might not have read it. This was my first experience with verse and not something I would have willingly chosen. At first it was a little hard to follow the broken sentences, but when I got used to […]

I had mixed feelings about this book. I’m a tomboy, so girls acting too much like the epitome of a girl irritates me. While I thought the reason for Natalie becoming ‘Nat’ for a week was rather silly (why do so many girls think that getting boys to like them is the only thing that matters in life?!), I do like the idea of it. I haven’t seen She’s the Man (I don’t like Amanda Bynes), but there’s a manga […]

Dying is easy. Living is hard. This book didn’t waste any time getting to the point. A few pages in I was already glued to the story, hand over my mouth in horror and shock. After the accident, Mia is left with the ultimate question – live with the pain or take the easy way out in death? I loved Mia’s family and friends. Like me, Mia has an awesome family (okay, so my parents didn’t get married in leather […]

Oh. My. God. When this book first started, I loathed Sam and her friends. They were everything I hate in girls – snobby, preppy, shallow. Cheating on tests and copying homework. Making fun of everyone they consider less fortunate. Flirting with teachers (gag). I was disgusted by how Sam and her friends treated other people. And I found it irritating how focused on sex they were, like it was the most important thing in a relationship, or something to gain […]
