Book 18: Geekerella

By: Ashley Poston


This book is on my favorites list on my Goodreads account for a reason. Geekerella is so different from the books I read. And it is also cool that the main character and I have the same name.

Danielle is so nerdy and cute, I really don’t know how to describe her. She is sweet and I love a good retelling and this one made Cinderella look weak. Darien was kind of a jerk in the beginning. But then I got to know him, and he was okay. But then I was like, “Wow. He’s not half bad…” But nevertheless, in the end, he’s sweet and a stereotypical hot nerd.

The plot was very sweet and I love how they turned the story around a little and had Calliope (Danielle’s step sister) be a decent human being. And she started dating Sage (Danielle’s co-worker).

The ending was just so different and fun. I mean a freaking orange food truck is speeding across a country club. Darien and Danielle are like puzzle pieces and their personalities and quirks fit perfectly together.

Book 17: The Selection

By: Kiera Cass

Lets talk…

I cannot explain how much I hate America Singer. This will obviously be a rant review because sometimes I just need to throw a horrible book in the mix.

One of many things I hate about this book is that America is a hypocrite. She is such a freaking hypocrite that I actually had a laughing fit about it. She complains every paragraph about how Maxon and Kriss like each other and why would he like her, but she is doing the same thing with Aspen. He is wondering the same thing and is in the same place.

And Kiera Cass makes America’s mom sound like an evil stepmother and America’s dad sound like a piece of heaven. But there is so much foreshadowing it is so obvious the outcome. I won’t spoil that much because it is later in the series… And yes I have read the second book and then read two chapters of the third before I laughed at how stupid it was and then closed the book.

So be prepared for another rant review in about a month! That one will be interesting…

I get so frustrated with this book that I am amazed that I enjoyed the first time around and even read the second book. Even if this is probably one of the worst books ever, I know a bunch of people who enjoyed it and I can see why. But this book is definitely not my cup of tea.

Would not recommend personally, but I would if you like trashy love fantasy series.

Book 16: Perfectly Oblivious (and other books by Robin Daniels)

By: Robin Daniels


There will be spoilers in all of my reviews from this review and on.

I have been on the fence about reading this book because Goodreads (@Elle_Haze) has a rating of 3.95. And I know that that is a high rating but I sampled it and decided to get a different book in which I will be reviewing next week. But I decided to get it after reading the story line of the other books in the series.

I don’t do negative reviews but this series gave me mixed feelings. I enjoyed the characters and the plot but it took awhile to get there. I listened to this on Audible and a large fraction of the beginning was just talking about their feelings without getting into the summary I was provided with.

This book is duel point of view between Cameron (Cam) and Bianca (Bebe). Their relationship was stereotypical and the plot was predictable. I liked Robin Daniels writing, but the only problem I had -also a problem with Millionaire B&B- is that when Robin Daniels writes duel views, one character thinks one and then the other says it out loud. I believe she meant it as they know each other so well, but it was completely over used to the point where it got annoying.

Besides that, I felt as though I understood what they did and why. But there is an exception for one scene.

Bebe goes out on a date and Cam gets so jealous that he stalks them. Literally follows them to a football game and to Chili’s. I thought he was stupid but it sounded like a good idea. Sounded; past tense. Bebe never found out and it kind of effected the story but I felt there were better ways to get the ending they got.

This book reminded me of the Duff in a few aspects. Such as: Bianca; friends since they were kids, both guys are athletes, girls have best friends that get more guy attention. The plots are different, but I kept comparing and contrasting these two books.

Since I will never read the other books in the series, I will talk about them here.

I will never in a lifetime read the second book. It doesn’t interest me and again, it is sort of stereotypical.

I was ready to buy the fourth book but then I previewed it on Goodreads. I thank God everyday for that preview. I hated the characters in that book in the first few pages and I put it done before the preview was over. The plot was intriguing but the I couldn’t deal with the characters.

I planned to read the third book after the forth but after reading the first previews of all the books in this series and reading the first book I decided that I would just stop with this series.

The plots were amazing but I just couldn’t get through it.

If you enjoy cheesy books that involve a lot of basketball, read this one.
