Didn't gel to this at all unfortunately. I found most of the characters really unlikable, which is not always a bad thing but they weren't unlike able enough at the other end to make any sort of an impression on me if that makes sense?

I love a book where I can detest a character but there's nothing worse than feeling "Meh" about a character or story.

Really I thought that Bianca was a bit thick. This idiot insults her constantly yet she still not only gives him the time of day, she uses him as a "distraction". Right. Also whining about an ex who took her virginity when she was 14!? Statutory Rape anyone!?? Maybe I'm not down with the young people anymore but I thought that was a bit excessive

I picked this up because I read that it was going to be turned into a movie and I wanted to read it first.


Movie Trailer: 


I just watched the trailer. It seems they totally changed the story. This, for me at least is a good thing as it would have been one boring ass movie.
This is probably the only time ill ever say this but skip the book and wait for the movie

  1. I read this before I started writing reviews, and your review summed up my thoughts exactly!
    I even think the movie looks so much better than the book. I can't wait to check it out. :)
