There were points wIf you've ever watched Chelsea Lately and enjoy her twisted, I don't give a @#$% attitude then you'll get a kick out of this book. There were points where I could literally hear this girl saying this stuff. It is very much in her voice and I really enjoyed the majority of this book. There were a couple stories that I'm not sure why they were in there, but would later link to another story so I could then kinda see why they were included, but those tended to be the ones that weren't very funny.
I have had this on my To-Read list for a while and I'm glad I finally read the book. I have her others on the list and will be picking them up sooner rather than later since I liked this one. This book reminded me a lot of reading David Sedaris, but from a woman's perspective and honestly I enjoyed her book more. There were times I would laugh out loud, and I rarely do that when reading. I'd go back and re-read a line just to make sure I had read what I thought I read, then I'd laugh even harder!
As I said, if you can enjoy a little raunchy humor then maybe this book is for you. Not for the ultra conservative crowds by any means!...more

Some are decent reads and I am not at all put off by the fact that it is Young Adult. But THIS, this is the kind of stuff that annoys the crap out of me. I finished it. It was a terrible struggle, but I did finish it. I'm not the target audience sure, but then I know even if I were I wouldn't have enjoyed this. I mean jeez a guy who is completely mysterious who really does not share anything with you, who flirts with other girls and really isn't all that great to you, but somehow you fall madly in love with him?!?
What annoys me the most about these books is there is nothing remotely original to this story or this book. I found myself thinking of other books I've read that had similar concepts that I enjoyed much more! The idea of reincarnation is interesting, but I enjoyed the book series The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller MUCH more. And the falling for a mysterious boy has been done time and time again. He rarely eats, he drinks this strange red liquid....can we say hints of Twilight by Stephanie Meyer here?
At least now I'm done and I can mark the book off my list, AND the entire series for that matter. So I've cleaned up my reading list a bit just by reading one book! I guess I'd recommend this to the target audience, but even then I'd hope the girls could find something with a bit more substance to read. I really hate to think girls would model themselves after this character or even wish they could live a life like hers. I cringe at that thought....more
