Books and Whimsy

I blog about books that change me at Books and Whimsy. I also write discussion posts, and host original features. I'm quite silly sometimes, serious others, and always champion great books. (booksandwhimsy.com) You can find my author blog at onceuponaprologue.net

September Girls - Bennett Madison UGH.

No really.

First of all, I am all for swearing. I swear a LOT in real life. But I think that several times EACH PAGE might be a little too much. I was psyched for this one at first because a guy writing YA? HOLLA. But noooooooooooo. Just NO. Just because you are writing a guy's POV doesn't mean they can't have some depth to them. And the way the MC thought about girls? UGH, NO.

Plus, the narration really didn't grab me, and the weird switches to the "Girl's" POV between chapters was odd. So, thanks, September Girls, but I'll pay for this date just to get it over with. And no, you aren't getting my number.
