The last thing Addy Davidson wants is to be on a reality TV show where the prize is a prom date with the President’s son.
She’s focused on her schoolwork so she can get a scholarship to an Ivy League college, uncomfortable in the spotlight, never been on a date, and didn’t even audition for it.
But she got selected anyway.
So she does her best to get eliminated on the...more
First Date was a fun, refreshing and delightful read. I'm a sucker for a celebrity-guy-ordinary-girl pairing so when I saw the synopsis it instantly caught my interest. I enjoyed it thoroughly especially the concept of reality TV show. This is also a Christian book so there were parts that discusses about it but it wasn't really overly done so it's okay for you to read it even if you're not a Christian. The writing was also good and fast paced so it was really an easy read.

I admit I went into First Date kind of reluctant and not sure if I would even like it. Why? Because me and contemporary novels never got along. Okay, I guess I can’t really say that seeing as I haven’t read a contemporary in three years and have only read five books in the contemporary category in my life. :P
So, this book was super awesome. The characters were fun and super lovable. I loved Kara. She was my favorite …. Well, besides Addy and Johnathon of course. ;)

I really wanted to like this book. And I did for most of it. Till the character started getting self righteous and acting superior than everyone else. Ugh. I just couldn't stand her after awhile. Her dialogue and attitude towards the end ruined the entire story for me. Just no!!!!
I'm gonna make this short so that I can get to the real issues of the story. The writing was fine nothing to rave about, but nothing terrible either. It was mediocre, something unmemorabl ...more
A cute coming-of-age novel, First Date ticks all the boxes. It's not too complex, doesn't delve too deeply past its YA borders, and manages to bring about characters who don't stick to your typical 'reality TV' cliches.
I think I would have enjoyed it a little bit more if:
i.) It didn't remind me so much of The Selection.
ii.) The other contestants didn't fully embody ev ...more
This book felt very amateur. It was event after event and the author took no time to really develop the relationships gradually. Characters were all very bland, even the Pre ...more
So I was walking through the library one day, looking for more books to read, even though my library bag was already filled with novels of choice. As I was scanning the spines, this book caught my eye. Actually, it was the title, First Date, that grabbed my attention. It sounded romantic and sweet. So I of course had to look at it. I read the summary on the back covered and it piqued my curiosity. So I requested it. I read all my other books first 'cu ...more

Jonathan Jackson must choose between girls from across the country, to attend his senior prom, on a reality T.V. show.
Oh, did I mention that the guy is the President's son?
And the whole thing is derived from the story of Esther.
Before getting a copy of this book I actually found Addy's friend Kara's first. Which I'm relieved I waited out for this book first. I wouldn't have known the beginning of their friendship!
I loved the idea of this. ...more
Warning, due to things, this review may get a bit long. I just need to express some close to me feelings.
I was again in the reality show mood, and I came across this one, I was all curious about it and immediately went to read it. Meet Addy, a Christian girl who would rather study and read than go and vie for a cute guy who is also the son of the president. I just adored how Addy stayed close to who she was, though I think it w ...more
So first of all, loved it this book. I mean it seemed kind of clichéd and I couldn't help casting my mind back to America and The Selection, but it was lovely.
The plot was amazing and I couldn't put the book down but I wanted something else. I wanted a book that wasn't always centered on the main character's "good side". I wanted to see Addy's flaws, something that would make me think twice before liking her. But no. All I got was, Addy was the "perfe ...more
