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...more
Stories on wattpad are like this: of course, there's always this hot guy to keep teens drooling, an unpopular girl, to add spices, a cliche-flicks-romance, to sum up the whole plot.

Stories that doesn't offer high quality. Just for entertainment. I mean if you're an avid fan of chick flicks, hopeless romantics books, or if you feel hopeless about your lovelife, then you should be reading these kind of books, probably, you may have a wattpad app on your phone.

Might I recommend, "Rolling Dice" for...more

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....more

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...more

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, and typical YA plot.

I'd read a sample of Kissing Booth and didn't even bother because it was such a silly fanfic type of writing and it was like romantic encounter after another, so idealized and imaginary that it's hard to read because of a lack of plot.

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...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.

Beth Reekles made the BBC News (as well as plenty of other news sources) last year when her first novel, The Kissing Booth, was picked up by Random House. After attracting more than 19 million readers online, it seemed like the publishing industry had made a sound choice! Rolling Dice is Reekles’ second novel. She is currently working on her third novel, and has recently been named on the list of the world’s most influential teenagers!

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...more
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...more

*Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review*

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...more
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

Again Random House have delivered another Young Adult literary gem. Rolling Dice might not deal with any obvious issues but Reekles expertly tackles and highlights the daily troubles an...more

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.

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!
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.

few grammar errors but cute YA
I love Beth Reekles first book The Kissing Booth. So I was really excited to read get next book Rolling Dice. A new story following a girl who tries really hard to hide her past with her new life. I really liked the story, until the end. For me I felt like she could've added more to it, but it still a great story and a good plot. That's why I gave it four stars. I would still recommend this book to readers.
Reads too much like a book written by a 17 year old to me... All of the characters were just too stereotypical (except the main character, of course - she was the 'perfect' blend of beautiful, insecure, funny and nerdy). Definitely not a book for me, though I can see how teenagers might like it. I spent a bit too much of the book feeling like my brain was melting... Just absolutely not for me.
Read this one online before the author got a book deal, and it's much better than her first published book, The Kissing Booth. For one, Rolling Dice was written a couple years after she had written the first one, and had a much better grasp of fiction-writing.
Victoria (nocturnalintimacy)
This was cute. It's a typical high school drama with an insecure female main character. I would have liked a little more development of the character's growth and her relationship with Dwight.
Perfect for V-day read, quick, adorably romantic, teen novel! So glad she ended up with the good guy! 3.5 (4) out of 5 stars! Definitely liked Kissing Booth best, but this is still cute!
I read the Wattpad version of this and the ending made me tear up a bit. Her writing in this book, in my opinion, has improved marginally from The Kissing Booth.

Beth has been writing on platforms such as Wattpad, to great acclaim, for a year or so: her first novel, The Kissing Booth, which she wrote at the age of fifteen, was the most-viewed, most-commented-on teen fiction title on the site, with over 19 million reads and 40,000 comments.
