A great start for a series!

If your looking for a story with a lot of depth this isn't the book for you. But if you looking for something light, fluffy and feel good, than Stupid Cupid is right up your alley!

It's entertaining, funny.. lots of laugh-out-loud moments! The plot itself was a little predictable, but it was still interesting enough to keep you turning the pages. From the description, I thought it was going to be more along the lines of Felicity finding out she is related to the "real

Stupid Cupid is a fabulously funny novel that I simply adored. Sure, it doesn’t have a ton of depth or the best of writing, but it does have three main characters that I ( and other teens) can relate easily to and a premise that was an interesting take off of 'cupid' making this a fun read for teen girls everywhere.

Anyway, getting back to the main characters. Felicity, Andy, and Maya were all girls that were definitely not stereotypical and had several different layers to them that made you enj

I really enjoyed this book; it was a perfect read for February. I liked the whole “cupid” angle and thought it was fun seeing Felicity matching her fellow classmates up. There were some funny scenes; one line pops into mind about apples that had me laughing out loud, which wasn’t a good thing since I was sitting at the DMV at the time. Felicity, Maya and Andy were fun to read about and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I would have liked a little more background story on Cupid’s H

This book wasn't really worth reading. The author came to our library this past week, so I thought I would give it a try.

It is a teen drama that I think the author put too much effort into. She had swear words where there weren't any needed and it was sort of a boring story. With that said, I have requested book #2 from the library. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a series of books.

Felicity Walker is hired as a "cupid" for a dating company. She is able to send emails that, once opened, are ab

I <3 Felicity! She is too cute and fun and I wish she was real so we could hang out. The concept of a cupid who can matchmake anyone in her school by sending them an e-mail on her special PDA is so cool and the writing is so funny! This is a seriously cute and fun book teens will love.

Summary: Felicity applies for and gets a job as a cupid. She is assigned to match up couples in her high school. This starts off well enough but when she matches her friend Maya up with three guys (a big no-no), things could turn ugly.

Why I Read: I had seen some reviews of it and I liked the concept.

My Thoughts: I don't know if I've read too much YA lately or if I'm becoming blase but I found this rather predictable and the main character very aggravating. Her attitude toward her job was infuria

A ridiculously laugh-out-loud funny novel. There weren't really any depth or good writing style but it was just funny in general. It was easy to relate to the girls in this book.
The three main characters, Felicity, Maya and Andy are best friends forever. They've had each other's back for the longest time so it's natural that Felicity would want to help boost Maya's love life. And watching it unfold with its twists and surprises was hilarious.

Though none of the characters had any real depth in th

I normally would have passed on this type of book just by looking at the cover because I would have thought it to be realistic fiction and I am not all that into that type of genre. Not because this cover isn't attractive but it would not have normally appealed to me because it looks like one of those girly realistic love stories. I am so glad that I went to a book signing and heard Rhonda talk about this book. Rhonda is extremely funny in person and I just knew if a tenth of her personality cam

Felicity Walker is just your average teenager, with problems of her own, and she needs a job. Not being the best at interviews, she didn’t think the interview with Cupid’s Hallow would be any different. Only it was. Things in her little mixed up world were just about to get even more mixed up as she was now employed and not just a matchmaker…Felicity’s a cupid!

With a PDA and a job to do, she is on the hunt for the perfect matches and lots of bonuses to come her way. But when Felicity matches her

This is just my opinion, and I hesitate to be so negative because I know this is an author's hard work here... but I really, really didn't like this book. Didn't finish it. Didn't get past the first quarter of the book. I found myself staring at the words going "...what the hell is this?" Maybe it's because I don't read much contemporary fiction, but this had a speculative element so I expected it to be on a par with other books of a similar genre. Not at all.

Before I start this review, I would like to say that Stupid Cupid is more like a Simon Romantic Comedy than just a regular Simon Pulse book. I went into it thinking that it might be a little bit serious, and a little less predictable, than a regular Simon Rom-Com, but that was not the case.

My main thing with this book was that it was very predictable. I guessed what was going to happen at the end about halfway through the book. It didn't keep me wondering what was going to happen, and that disap

This book is too cute! All while being hilarious and totally original. I also must make a comment on the cover now - isn't it absolutely adorable? I lurve it! Rhonda Stapleton definately put a new view of "cupids" out there. I really liked how a big part of the book was focused on Maya's romance, while leaving Felicty hoping for a romance of her own.

I loved the characters. They were all so fresh. Felicity, Maya and Andy were all different from each other, but you could tell the bonds of friendsh

WARNINGS: So cute and I loved it.

Stupid Cupid is a fantastic, fast read. This book was a very enjoyable, easy to read, and interesting enough to keep me turning the pages. Sometimes, I would even laugh out loud or giggle at whatever was happening (the situation between her parents, a prime example!). It was definitely a good way to start the series and I most certainly can’t wait to read more.

Felicity is the classic good friend, who of course causes a bit of trouble for her friend only while try

I’m actually reading the omnibus, but I wanted to post the reviews for each book separately.

I’ve found that with YA books, if it’s not paranormal or a re-telling of a fairy tale, I find them to be a bit young for me. Not that they’re not good, it’s just that the paranormal tales often seem to be more like adult books, but with teenagers, while books like Stupid Cupid are more teen-like. I know this is kind of a stupid thing to say since they’re YA books, but that’s just the way it is.

This had to be one of the cutest YA books Ive read in a while. Not only does Felicity have the coolest job ever, but her one-liners and personality are histerical!

Felicity needs a job and lands one at a matchmaking service called Cupids Hollow. When her boss explains to her that she IS a cupid, she will be able to make matches in her school via a cupid-arrow/email. Cupids Hollow is funded by the flower/card industries, so when love is in the air, everyone profits.

My Thoughts: I had been really looking forward to this series and I waited until all 3 books were released until I started so I didn't have to wait a long time to read each one! We start off being introduced to Felicity who is a teenager who needs a job. She is best friends with Maya and Andy. I just love all their names, so creative! She gets a job at a matchmaking company. No, its not one you've ever heard of! Its called Cupid's Hollow. She barely reads the manual and just starts hooking peopl ...more

Felicity scored a job - she's become a cupid. Cupid is no longer only for adults and there's a whole slew of them. With this new job, Felicity has the power to create love matches by sending blank emails to the couple with potential.

There are rules involved: each potential couple must have at least three points of common interest, you don't hook up more than one person with another, and above all you must learn from the matches that don't make it a

Dear GoodReads readers,
I just finished my new book today, it’s called Stupid Cupid by Rhonda Stapleton. I think this was an interesting and very odd book but I liked the idea.
Felicity believes in true love (and is also broke) so she applies for a job at a match making company called Cupids Hollow. What Felicity doesn’t realizes is she isn`t just going to be matching people up from a dating site, she will be matching people up from her school. The cool thing about Felicity`s job thought is she is

Amazing book about a girl named Felicity who desperately needs a job and unwillingly becomes a cupid. But she keeps the job and goes around her high school with her special PDF and matched up people who she thought would have a spark-but she cant use it on herself. She wants to use it on her crush Dylan...Lets skip to the last book

I won this book in a goodreads drawing last month. Although reluctant to read a Young Adult novel, I was pleasantly surprised. Some books are set in high school but they transcend that mentality. This book does not. But if you take it for what it is, you will enjoy spending time with the witty and saucy narrator Felicity as she learns more about the real meaning of love. Although Felicity's narrative voice can feel limited as she swoons over boys in typical teenage girl fashion, she has a few in ...more

I thought this book was pretty okay. It wasn't all that great, but OKAY.

A few questions first of all. If the 'manual' was so important to read, then why did she end up jot reading it and turning out just fine? Also, wasn't it really REALLY bad to match someone up with 2 people, so how come she did it with 3 and no one found out and it STILL turned out to be okay...? Also, I thought it was too childish (I'm sorry! It was in the teen section!) and cliche in the end. I mean, why does the main chara

A really awesome idea. I did think the characterisation and some of the stuff that happened/the way it happened was not very believable. Also, Felicity was extremely woe-is-me first world problemy at times.

Stupid Cupid is one of those light-hearted, just-for-fun books that everyone likes to read, at least once in a while. I liked the idea of the teenage cupid, and the humor in a girl who has only ever had one boyfriend (and he was just trying to get closer to one of her best friends) doing the job made it even more fun. This is a quick read - in fact, the three books of the trilogy can all be read in the time of one of the longer, heavier books you find for Y.A. readers. Each book (Stupid Cupid, F ...more

Felicity needs a job and is hired to be a cupid. With a pink PDA and sworn to secrecy she is hired to match up people within her own high school. There are enough problems in high school without adding a teenaged match maker with a magical PDA to the mix.

Not to mention since she now works as a cupid, she can't even match make herself with the guy she's been crushing on. Having to resort to the normal method of getting a guy, who she can barely talk to is hard work she realizes, but completely

I have to admit that I was drawn to these books by their covers. I love the heart and the contrasting colours. Overall this was a good book... the whole love match angle was interesting and a bit unique. It was cool how it was a little bit mystical, but not that Felicity was born into a family of cupids or anything. Some of the book dragged a bit, and I like I would have liked it better as a stand-alone novel with all the issues with Derek concluded within the 1 book. But I'll definitely read th ...more
