Review: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Note: We received this book from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. 

I read this is practically one sitting, and it’s been so long time since I did that! It’s also been ages since I’ve read a YA thriller, so it’s been a books of ‘the first time in forever’s. Bad Girls With Perfect Faces was unexpected, with its lyrical writing style and detailed characters. Unfortunately, I felt like it took way too long to get started – the thriller element didn’t start until roughly 60% through the book!

This is the story of Sasha and Xavier, who are best friends, and on Xavier’s birthday they go to a club and run into Ivy, Xavier’s toxic ex-girlfriend. Sasha’s in love with Xavier, so obviously she’s not best pleased, and tries to catch Ivy in the act of cheating.

Review: King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

Genre: Dystopian

But I’m invested in the series, and considering there’s only one more to go, I’m going to soldier on and read it when it comes out next year.

Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Published by: Headline
Pages: 215
Format: Paperback
Rating: ★★.5

I read this book years ago – in fact, it was the first book I ever bought on my Kindle – and since I’ve been doing a lot of re-reading recently, I decided that this SUPER SHORT book would be the perfect thing to read next. I remember really enjoying the story at the time, but at that point, I knew very little about YA and the genre tropes, neither did I know what good YA looked like. Unfortunately I don’t think The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight has stood the test of time.
