An easy-read 3.5 stars.

This was a fun read which was exactly what I expected. Well, almost. The ending was better than I thought it'd be.

This was a pretty quick read, the kind of thing I'd pick up on a rainy day to cheer myself up.

One thing I can definitely say is that Beth Reekles' writing has improved since her first book, which is great and makes her one to watch.

I didn't really connect with Maddie, the main character, which is weird as I enjoyed this book. Usually when I don't enjoy a book i

Is another iffy novel which was spawned on Wattpad, that salted-earth electronic backwater of unspeakable teenage masturbation fantasies involving boybands, albeit indirectly, as the author of this effort is a young Welsh lass named Beth Reeks. This may seem familiar; she did The Kissing Booth previous and which has found its way onto these writeups.

You may wonder why I willingly read another novel by an author whose first effort I described as a "Category 5 cliché tornado." Well, the answer is.

Apparently Beth Reekles is an author to watch out for. Maybe I'll give her a few more years to develop her writing, because Rolling Dice was exactly how I envisioned a seventeen year old would write, in a breezy, awkward-with-emotions kind of flow, and of course, the typical YA plot.

I'd read a sample of The Kissing Booth and didn't even bother because it was such a silly fanfic type of writing - it was one romantic encounter after another, so idealized and imaginary that it was hard to read bec

Iv'e had Rolling Dice on my to read pile for a while, firstly from a blogger event, then I purchased a copy for YALC last year. To take a break from review books I took Rolling Dice with me on a recent trip to London.

Madison is new to Florida, moving with her family to relocate after her Nan passes away. After being bullied at her old school she is determined to turn a new page, and become a new person. So with a recent loss in weight, removal of braces and exchanging glasses for contacts, she i

Beth Reekles is an author to watch out for. Her first book showed much promise and although I wasn't a huge fan I was keen to see how she developed as an author in her next books. I am pleased to say I enjoyed Rolling Dice far more as I thought it was a much better read and addressed a lot of the issues I had with the Kissing Booth.

I found the voice to be far better in this book than the Kissing booth. It felt truly American rather than a weird American / British mix which was my complaint befo

Beth Reekles is one of those authors that got famous from a Wattpad novel of dubious quality. As I was going on an OverDrive checkout binge, I got her first novel, The Kissing Booth, as a joke, since I'd heard it was pretty bad (of the 4 editorial reviews of the book I had seen, 4 were negative), but decided to seriously try this book, Rolling Dice. I'd heard nothing about it, and I vaguely remembered reading a preview on Wattpad two years ago and being impressed. Of course, that was two years a ...more
Aug 30, 2014 Misty rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
It's a quite an easy read, and even though it is cliché, we all knew she would end up with Dwight somehow. I feel sorry for Madison for being treated badly by Bryce and Tiffany, and feels like Dwight, Andy, Carter and Summer are her only friends left. Justin left without a trace, leaving everybody wondering if him and Tiffany really do get together.
One thing I didn't like though, is Carter's half eyebrow. You never know what actually happened to it, which is good for suspense, but I expected the

It maybe because I was struggling with my work load and social life, that I found it difficult to really get into this story. The Kissing Booth and Out of Tune hooked me from the first word. I'm saddened to admit that Rolling Dice did not. There are a number of things about this novel that really let it down.

The first, I think, is the lack of character development. Throughout the novel, I was waiting for Madison to grow some back-bone, maybe some common sense, especially when it came to Tiffany

This book was recommended from one of my friends. I was a little reluctant to read at first because well, I didn't really had the luxury of time, but after reading the summary of the book (which was really interesting by the way), I decided to give this book a shot.

A story about how a nobody turned popular as she moved to another state. A story where most teenagers can relate. I really really had high hopes of this book, but sadly, I was kind of disappointed.

Madison was too...much sometimes. It

I went into this book with the thought that I had grown out of them... Oh how wrong was I. Reekles created grounded characters and friendships. I really enjoyed reading scenes with Madison and Dwight, everything read off really naturally. There were some pages which were a bit repetitive, more so with Madison repeating certain pieces of information. After the relationships were established, we got a few days of detailed happenings but from then on it jumped really long time periods. It was a lit ...more

I liked the book as in REALLY liked it. But I honestly felt sad for Madison. Who got that picture of them in the library? And what happens to Justin? I'm guessing Madison and Dwight get together… I dunno. Maybe they shoulda just been best friends and Madison should be with Justin.
But that's only my opinion. It was a great story.

I really liked this book unti9l the end
the end part was a bit weird
I mean I wanted to know about how Madison deal with all the rumor stuff instead of running over the hills and a bit of Dwight and her love story
the middle part was a bit elongated otherwise the book was interesting

Madison is thrilled that her family has moved from Maine to Florida. The move will give her a chance to start over with a new crowd who doesn't know her as an overweight, shy, picked-on teen. Upon arriving in Florida, Madison is noticed by two guys - nerdy Dwight and soccer hottie Bryce. She decides to stick with Bryce as he is her way in with the popular crowd and she doesn't ever want to be an outcast again. But as the novel progresses she realizes that she's compromising more and more of her ...more

I had mixed feelings about Beth Reekles first book, The Kissing Booth but I was still looking forward to giving her second book a try.

Protagonist Madison has just moved from Maine to Florida and couldn’t be more excited about starting a new life for herself. Back at her old school, she was the outcast – not as slim and pretty as any of the other girls. Now, Madison has reinvented herself, complete with nose piercing and funky hair ready to start again. I honestly loved Madison from the very beg

This is the first book that I’ve read by Beth Reekles. I think she is an author to watch out for the future as she already shows much promise. Rolling Dice is an easy to read book which I devoured on my train journey to and from London.

I really liked the female protagonist Madison. She was very real and easy to relate to. I was intrigued by her transition from a shy bullied teen to a member of the popular crowd. It was also good to see that she worked out that despite not wanting to be like she

After finishing The Kissing Booth I just knew I had to pick up another of Beth Reekles books because they were so light and enjoyable. I really enjoyed Rolling Dice too. Sure, I had my problems with the characters and parts of the storyline, but overall it was an enjoyable read.

Madison's family is moving from Maine to Florida and Madison couldn't be happier. She jumps at the opportunity to re-invent herself and become a new person. Madiso

Review: what a fun contemporary romance! I loved the first novel by this young author and was very much looking forward to this new offering. I was not disappointed let me tell you! Just like the Kissing Booth Beth's first novel, I cannot believe that this wasn't written by an American author, the voice of the American teens is so prevalent. I also can't believe that this was written by such a young author-the characters are so well developed, the plot thought out thoroughly and there is a stron ...more

Bordering on 'okay'. It honestly kind of bored me. I enjoyed Kissing Booth much more than this. Hmmm, this one has quite alot of the negative-ish side of being a teenager. (at least, that's how it looks to me) Dwight's character and Summer is the only redeeming feature. Madison is such an inconsistent female lead protagonist. Oh well, I'm done with this.

This is a really well written book about a young girl struggling to make a new start in a new place. It captures the conflict between making friends with the 'right' people or the 'wrong' people in such a way that it leaves you really thinking. It was a really enjoyable book to read and i would recommend it for teens.
Apr 24, 2015 Gabrielle rated it it was ok
Extremely disappointed. This book is so cliche I knew what would happen the whole way through.
She's the outcast who moves school and becomes popular. She falls for a popular guy and a nerdy guy. You can guess who she ends up with!
It's so predicable but written slightly better than The Kissing Booth. Disappointed Reekles
I thought I'd give this book a try, given the fact that it was written by Beth Reekles
I tried reading it, but it just didn't feel as good as Out Of Tune or The Kissing Booth, I couldn't even finish it! I feel disappointed.

Reading rolling dice was absolutely beautiful, funny, sad and it made you just feel emotions that you knew were there. Beth Reekles is just an amazing writer that could put out a story with amazing characters.

One of my favorite wattpad books. It was recommended by a friend and I enjoy it a lot. There are many stories that tell the story of a girl trying to fit in, but this one was definitely different and amazing!

Ever felt left out at school? Well perhaps being in the popular clique isn't everything, not when you know that the cliques are so very defined. Popular's and nerds don't mix - but the higher you climb - the harder you'll fall; oh and everyone will notice! Her books are addictive, it pained me every time I had to put them down! Life and love is always a gamble. ;)

This was a really sweet, pick me up-book. A very light read, if that's what you're looking for. It was a very simple, basic story and the ending was quite good. The characters were quite nice and there isn't anything terrible about this book, but not anything brilliant either.
The story was okay. Very typical Wattpad YA. A light read with life lessons and all that. Too cliche-y for me, I think.

I really enjoyed this - it was perfect for summer and I can't wait to read more by Beth in the future.
