This new meme, Beautiful Book Hangover will be posted sporadically on La Femme Readers. According to the Urban Dictionary, "a book hangover is a headache you get after staying up into the wee hours of the morning staring at teeny tiny print." As book addicts we've all experienced this type of hangover many times, so why not share them with each other? You are more than welcome to use this idea, just as long as you credit me.
Book Hangover Choice:
The Ivy (The Ivy, #1) by Lauren Kunze with Rina Onur
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: Available Now
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Summary: Congratulations! You have been admitted to the most prestigious university in the world. Now what are you going to do? Callie Andrews may not have money or connections or the right clothes, and she may have way too many complications in her love life, what with—Gregory the guy she loves to hate. Evan the guy she'd love to forget. Clint the guy she'd love to love and Matt the guy she really should love—all vying for her attention. But she has three fantastic roommates (best friends or her worst nightmare?) and a wholesome California-girl reputation (oops) and brains and beauty and big, big dreams. Will it be enough to help her survive freshman year at Harvard?
Why it kept me up: Okay, let me start off by saying, this book isn't for everyone. Firstly, it's not for anyone under the age of 15, due to the cursing, alcohol/drugs and minor sex content. Secondly, in my opinion, all these elements I just named formulated an intense, drama filled read I couldn't put down. I usually hate drama in real life, but in books I am all for it! The Ivy was especially fun because it kept me on my toes with all the "no she didn't" moments. All in all, I absolutely loved it. The only thing that drove me crazy was the ending, it left me so exasperated! Damn you cliffhanger, I can't wait for the sequel, Secrets coming out in May. Just in case you missed my review, hop on over here.
