If this book were a dress, Chloe Sevigny would wear it.

Well, I didn't think much of the book frankly and wouldn't have read it if I hadn't been gifted it. The first word, line, page didn't prompt me to read further. But I still give the book 2 stars because it has a plot and there are no grammar or other issues, so it is writing! Never mind the plot is so repeated in the history of books that it is nothing new. Frankly, if I had read what the book was about, I would never have been interested. It was only the cover that pulled me towards itself. Gre ...more

As a junior high English teacher, I always feel the need to keep up with what the kids are reading...but I totally bought this one for myself! (though I plan to add it to the shelves in the fall) The story of sibling rivalry reminded me a bit of Popular meets Mean Girls, and while it's nothing new, it's still done in a highly entertaining fashion.

Since the authors spend most of their time writing about and mocking the ridiculous activities of celebrities, the whole novel feels like a tongue in

It’s unfortunate, but not surprising, I guess, that there is a backlash to Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan’s Spoiled, a novel that is a fun and important read. Important? Yes, because as a YA novel these keen observers of the nexus of celebrity and fashion took a subject matter that fascinates young people and exposes it for what it is. I covered red-carpet events for legit media and when I talk to young people all they care about is: who did you meet?, what did they wear?, how many Tweets of y ...more

Let me start off, in the spirit of full disclosure, by saying that Jessica and I go way back. Way back. Way, way back. The kind of way back *cough*freshmen year of college*cough* that knows where the bodies are buried...

That said, even if I didn't know Jessica personally, the international success of her and Heather's celebrity fashion blog Go Fug Yourself, a snarkilicious guilty pleasure of over four million readers a month, plus the Fug Girls' front row presence at every fashion week from New

I think I just need to stop reading fiction for myself. I have so much more fun that way.

Spoiled was the book that my 14-year-old tutoring student picked out for her English assignment, so there was nothing for me to do but saddle up and spend a few hours in her world: celebrities, makeup, fashions, and gossip galore.

What REALLY worries me is how much I liked it.

Here's how I think they got me.

1. Enthusiasm. You know, it doesn't really matter what a streaker looks like. What you admire about them

Molly Dix’s mother, Laurel recently died. On her deathbed, Laurel confesses to Molly that her father is world famous movie star, Brick Berlin. Thus, Molly moves to Hollywood, and starts a new life there. Navigating past a vindictive half-sister, the tabloids and a new school, Molly tries to fit her old life into her new one.

I was not impressed by this book. The plot was lacking, and really quite slow. I was bored for the first one hundred

I received this ARC from the publisher, along with an ARC of Sweetly. Which one to read first? I love the Go Fug Yourself blog so I'd been hearing about Spoiled for some time now. This isn't my favorite genre of YA, but I was still interested to see how the bloggers' snarkiness would play out in novel form.

Brooke Berlin has just discovered that thanks to her famous actor father Brick Berlin's fooling around, she has a half-sister about the same age. Unluckily for her, Midwesterner Molly Dix has

I personally thought that Heather Cocks, made it really easy to be able to picture yourself being one of the many characters in this book. The great detail helps put into perspective that this could happen to anyone. It combines struggles of being a sibling and being a normal teenager. I really enjoyed the book because it is about a girl who struggles getting along with her sibling and the struggles of going to high school just like any teenager, including me but with a different scenario. I rea ...more

I love Go Fug Yourself, but this book lacked something. Heart, I think? It's about two mice, the city mouse and the country mouse. The country mouse is boring and the city mouse is a superficial jerk. I'm sure they grow and change and magic happens, but I'm putting this down after a few chapters.

The tagline says it all - "You say SPOILED like it's a bad thing".

I would have devoured this book as a teenager. I was addicted to Sweet Valley High's and wanted to be a blonde California girl who's biggest trouble was deciding who to date that day.

This is the story of Brooke and Molly. Brooke has grown up all her life in Hollywood with her famous father. Molly is the child he knew he had, but her mother was adamant that she remain in Ohio, in ignorance of her father and that life. All that cha

This is a 3.5 star book. The beginning started off really slow. I mean it took over 100 pages just to get to the first day of her new school. But then it really starts to pick up and I didn't complain. The opposite really, I couldn't put it down.

Let's start with the beginning of the book. That's always a good place to start. We are introduced to Molly whose mother has recently died and she has come into contact with her father, a superstar in the Hollywood world. She decides to move out to LA

Nora's Review: Spoiled is exactly the kind of YA I look forward to reading, as it is escapist fun without being ridiculous or over the top. Being spoiled isn’t really the focus of the book – I am sure someone just thought it would sell more books with a title like that. Basically sixteen-year-old Molly Dix has always lived a normal boring life in some fly-over state. When her mother dies prematurely, it is revealed that her father is a famous movie star (Brick Berlin) and Molly is given the oppo ...more

i didn't expect this to be great literature. i picked it up solely because i have been reading the go fug yourself blog for six years, i think it's fun & clever, & i was curious to see how those ladies transferred their wit to a young adult book. this was just as frothy & silly as i expected (in a fun way!), but it was also a little more formulaic than i expected. it was as if they outlined it using a guidebook on how to write chick lit (such things exist). down-to-earth indiana girl ...more

There’s no doubt that Spoiled is a really, really fun book. I’ve enjoyed the Fug Girls’ snarky fashion and celebrity blog for years, and Spoiled is written in the same breezy and hilarious style. The plot isn’t as fantastic as the writing style, but I wanted to forgive the book anything just because the ride was a blast.

As mentioned in the synopsis, our co-heroines are half-sisters suddenly introduced to each other after the death of Molly’s mother. And their father just ha

Honestly I love the book because it depicts Los Angeles and I might be a bit biased since I live in LA! I absolutely adored the idea of this small town girl with nearly nothing going to live with a famous Hollywood celebrity...

This novel was a quick read and it had you turning the pages because it had some fun quirky drama that seems highly unlikely even for a rich prep school... But nonetheless still intriguing! It could have had 5 stars but honestly... How many times can you mention someones d

Spoiled is written by the women who run Go Fug Yourself (Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan), so when I started reading it, I knew there would be snark, some romantika (I have no idea why I typed it like that, it just came out), and general fluff.

Spoiled does have all of those things, and yes, maybe it is a bit cliche, but it's really an enjoyable beach read. No, I'm not dying to read the (apparent) sequel. No, I didn't cry...

But I did laugh and was generally happy with the book. And it's what I w

"Sixteen year old Molly Dix loves her ordinary life in suburban Indiana. When her single mother passes away, she's shocked to discover that her biological father is Brick Berlin, world-famous movie star and red-carpet regular.

This was fun but a little disappointing.

I think it was a case of THE (Too High Expectations). Disappointment was probably inevitable because they were ridonkulously high. Go Fug Yourself is one of my fave blogs; Heather and Jessica are so damn brilliant and their blog posts are hilarious, intelligent and extremely witty. So when I found out they were releasing a YA novel, I was super excited - so much that I couldn't wait for

What do you get when you mix step-sisters as different as sweet and sour with a self-absorbed movie star father in a Hollywood setting? Spoiled, of course! With a whopping dose of funny, Spoiled spins family drama upside down and inside out.

Molly and Brooke have virtually nothing in common, except their famous father, Brick. Oh my gosh, this guy is hilarious! Brick is a stereotypical air-head of an egomaniac. So, why do I like Brick so much? Because underneath it all, he cares about his daughter

I thought this book was a good book. I usually don't read drama books or books about things that aren't vampires, fairies, etc. from the beginning this book had a good catch. Since when does a lonely lost girl find out her father is famous?!
A girl named Molly was a smart, funny, ad nice girl. She had a boyfriend named Danny who she has dated since forever ago. Molly's mother passed away and Molly is lost and confused. Molly's mother was a costume maker for plays and was an inspiration to Molly.

I have to say, I thought I'd only think this was mediocre. As a fan of Go Fug Yourself for years, I've always enjoyed the snarky writing style the girls bring to the blog, so I thought a book by the two of them would surely be fun. But then I read a few reviews and a lot of people were pretty meh about it, even people who were big fans of the blog. I grabbed it when it was the Kindle daily deal, figuring that I'd find out for myself for $2, and if it was terrible, at least I didn't spend much.

In this book the main character Molly who is 16 just finds out that her father is Brick Berlin this big time movie star who everyone adores and loves, including Molly. Her mom has just died of cancer, but right before she does she tells Molly about who her dad is and when she dies Molly is going to live with her dad. Brick also has another daughter who is sort of a spoiled brat who tricks Molly into thinking she is sweet and nice and the best sister ever, but really she's like the evil step sist ...more

I love gofugyourself.com, so when the writers of that blog announced they were writing a YA book, I was totally in. I knew it wasn't going to be high class literature, and instead was going to be my favorite kind of YA summer read: vapid high school drama that involved fashion, bitchiness and Hollywood. That's exactly what I got: a superfast read that let me escape my boring world for a while. It's not a great book, but it's amusing and kept me reading while drinking a fruity cocktail.

I found this book really easy to read although i did take my time to finish it because it is quite big.I found that the tittle connected to me and i was expecting some kind of teenage princess.I also thought the blurb really summed up the story really well.My favourite quote is probably between the two main characters at a magazine interview."i was nearly reluctant to leave the perfect plush dress and felt that i was going to hug it good bye but than i was whisked away to make-up".I think this r ...more

This was charming and darling (charling? darming?) and went by like a flash. It can't get any better than a "Clueless"-type girl with a friend named Arugula, can it? This is light and fluffy and totally entertaining. No, it's not heavy with deep spiritual meaning, but the great thing is it DOES have a moral, it does encourage the reader to consider the consequences of her actions, and it does have a happy ending.

It also has some hilarious lines, misunderstandings, evil plans that went into effec

The FugGirls do young adult. Sixteen-year-old Molly is whisked out of the Midwest to a Los Angeles mansion after her mother dies and she unexpectedly acquires a movie star dad and a sister. I enjoyed that this was about two girls from –

Yeah, no, let's get real. There's blah blah blah sisterhood stuff here, but this is a book by the Fug Girls, so I read almost entirely for the made up movies, so terrible and perfect they circle back to plausible. The shoot 'em up Cyrano de Bergerac with Beyonce.

Meh. More like two and a half stars. Like many sane people, I love Go Fug Yourself, and I looked forward to the sense of humor as well as levity the Fug Girls bring to the table. While there's plenty of the first, I feel like Spoiled is a little lacking on the second. Also most of the characters were a little too cartoony for my taste, and I guess in a story like this I need just a little more reality. I mean, there's a dead mom! Could see basically all of the conflict coming, and there were few ...more

I really enjoyed reading the book spoiled. While reading this book it showed the differences between the world of famous people and the world of normal people. And the world of both combined. My favorite part about this book was how Brooke and Molly eventually overcame their differences but then eventually messed up their relationship again. I liked this book a lot and can't wait to read the sequel!
