P.S. I Loathe You

Look, I know I don't usually do book reviews, but this is worth it.

I'm kinda' reviewing P.S. I Loathe You by Lisi Harrison. It's the tenth book in the Clique Series. If you've read the other books, you think you know the drill: Massie bosses everyone else around and treats them like crap, then the other person does something, and Massie is at the bottom of the food chain, then the other person gets in trouble (is possibly forgiven), and the Pretty Committee is back on top.

Well, things in this book are DIFFERENT.

First of all, Kristen finally gets a point of view. There's not so much of Massie's POV, thank God. Also, instead of everyone just putting up with her, they stand up for themselves, and (VERY SMALL SPOILER) it does no end in their demise, however I guess we'll see in "Boys R Us." (BIG SPOILER) and Massie finally loses. And we finally get into Dylan's head, too! And you really see the best of all the boys. And finally, it seems like Claire is an honorary member of the PC.

Now, in the beginning, it's not so promising, but push yourself to page 50, and you won't be able to put it down. You're going to want to finish it as soon as possible--not because you want to get over it, but beacause you'll want to know what happens SO MUCH!!! The ending promises an amazing 11th book which is to come out on July 7th (which is AMAZING, because books in my city come out a couple days before they're officially supposed to come out, and because of this, it'll be out for my birthday! If you're reading this, Real Life Friends, you know what to get me.)

I think that out of all the books, this has a reasonable amount of annyoingness. I believe it's also the very creative, which I didn't expect; after writing so many books, you'd think she'd run out of ideas.

On the rate of one to ten, it's a 7.8

What do you think? Have you read the book? Do you plan to? Am I just horrible at writing book reviews (if I am, in my defense I wrote this in ten minutes.)

I haven't read that book let alone any of the books from the Clique series. But I've seen the movie The Clique many times and it's great! The Clique series sounds good, I should read it someday.

Have a nice day :)!

P.S. I've noticed that you have 157 visitors from the U.S. and 1 from The United Kingdom and Italy! Congrats!

I've never read any of the Clique books. They're just not my thing.
But good review! :)

I don't plan on reading the Clique Series, but their titles make me laugh.

Thanks for the review. I've read the other ones but wasn't sure if I'd read this one or not, but I will after reading your review!
