This book was so great! I love a good friendship story ^_^

I hadn't originally intended to read this book (or this series), and I'm writing one review for the whole series. You'll see why.

What happened was I read an article on banned books, and this was mentioned. I went to Amazon to read a synopsis, and somehow my finger hit the "Buy With One-Click" or whatever button, and there it was, on my Kindle.

The Internet Girls series follows the lives of three Atlanta girls who are BFF's: wild-child Maddie, relatively normal Angela, and the quiet, bookish Zoe.

“The best thing you can do is find someone who loves you when you’re pretty, when you’re ugly, when you’re mad, when you’re happy. Someone who, no matter what, is still going to think the sun shines out of your ass.”

Overall Thoughts

This was a super fun, easy and cute series. Nothing intense of course, there's not much to actually review. But if you're looking for something light and funny, this series is great. The girls are hilarious and I found myself getting actually invested in their st

I loved these books when I first read them so many years ago, so this was nice to get back into this series. I missed Zoe, Angela and Maddie without even realizing it. This book also brought me back in remembering what i was like when I first started university. I would never want to go back but it brought back good memories. Thank you Lauren Myracle for writing this and for bringing the girls back.

The last book in the Internet Girls (?right?) series. I feel like it was less than the other books. It was shorter and I feel like compared to the other books not much did happen. And it ends so quickly. I want to hear all about their Thanksgiving together and how things are after, like if Maddie gets better. But I still enjoyed this book and as always I love their friendship.

Ahhhh!!! There's going to be a new one! I loved the first three and I thought that they were so freaking adorable and fast reads. I can't wait for this to come out and I'm doing everything in my power to try and get an ARC.

I have to admit, I’m disappointed. When I heard that there was a fourth “Internet Girls” book, I was really excited, as I read the first three books as a preteen/teenager and really loved them. Maybe I just set my hopes too high? Regardless, I don’t think that this book lives up to its predecessors. I don't know if this is TRULY a 1-star read, and I might come back later and bump it up to two stars, but like I said, I had high hopes and I feel let down!

The premise is pretty straightforward: YOLO

I've always loved this series! This is the fourth one in the series, and it was so long since the third one came out that I was worried I'd have forgotten too much to pick up the story again now. But I didn't need to worry. This book could even be read by itself, I feel, because it makes just enough references to any bacsktory and not much backstory is necessary in this one anyway. What i definitely did not forget were the distinct personalities of the three characters: Maddie, Angela and Zoe. T ...more

I was expecting the charm that came with the winsome threesome after the first three books, but this fell flat. Sure, it integrated new social media (mentions of Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook), but the story didn't really go anywhere. I didn't catch that Maddie (view spoiler), but that should have been obvious. Angela and Reid seemed convenient. Also Angela is in college, how does she not know "Reid and I" in proper grammar, and wha ...more

Didn't get sucked into it until around 10/15 pages in. Once I did though I couldn't stop reading! It just as funny and enjoyable as the past 3. I really like Reid, though it wasn't much we got on him, but I think he's cute! I really wished the book was longer though. It was so short, if all that happened in like 2 months, what'll happen in the rest of the year?! I seriously hope there will be another book!

OMG I DID NOT EXPECT ANOTHER!!! So excited!!! And YOLO really works for the time and age. CANNOT WAIT!!!
This was the only book in the series I hadn't read before - by 2014 this series was just a part of my childhood, and not one that I was frequently picking up to re-read. Now I've gotten through the entire series with copious amounts of nostalgia and cringing and I've re-lived part of what made me me.

Since I hadn't read this as a kid, and this was me reading college students as a college student instead of reading high schoolers as a preteen/child, I think I was more judgey of how plotlines were

I went into this book blind, and when I opened it up and realized it was all told through texts, I was skeptical. I thought it might get old fast, or not express enough emotions. I was wrong. This is the tale of three best friends separated for the first time as they go off to different colleges. We follow the girls through, the good, bad, and in-between as the gain that freshman fifteen ( or lose it in some cases) experiment with drinking and dating.

The last book they went off the college. They all changed and separated. They got into fights. This was once the inseparable group and now they are in college and they are not friends. Through a lot of crap that went down, they finally realized they cant live without each other. The thing is some of the girls don't want to be friends any more from what happened. They learn to regain their friendship and they are back. I really liked this because it was college based but now I'm sad the series is ...more

still preachy and weirdly offensive at times— this one is worse than the others just by virtue of how outdated it is

I thought this was an overall okay book. I liked this book because it was written in text messages and that made it more exciting to read. I also liked this book because it was about college life and I got a glimpse of what I can expect in college. One of the girls like to party a lot and that was fun to read because I like to party a lot too. So I could relate.

One thing I didn't like about this book was that it had a lot of cursing and it got a little annoying. The three main characters are Mad

I read the first books when I was a teenager, and was SO excited for this new one set in college! There has never really been another book series like this, so I was looking forward to another technology driven book.

What I don't understand is why, when it's 2014, they're still using AIM. Does AIM even exist anymore? Even though they mentioned Instagram and Twitter in passing, I felt like this book could've really been something more, possibly integrating Instagram, tumblr, snapchat, and F

First off, I loved this book. I have loved this series since I first discovered it when I was younger, and had anxiously awaited each book's release. When I found out that there was going to be a fourth book, I was ecstatic, because I thought it had ended at the third book.

This book made it so easy for me to jump back into the lives of these girls, and now that I've been in college awhile, it was interesting to see where they all were headed in their college lives. Some of the book was a bit pr

I was so excited to see a fourth installment to this series. I read it a few years ago and loved it, I was sad to see it end after three books. I think the author did a fantastic job with this book as well and would LOVE to see her continue the series. It's so much fun to read books written epistolary form. For me, it makes me feel like I'm right there in the characters' lives more so than when a book is written as a narrative - even when it's the main character narrating.

I honestly think this

I was so excited when I saw this in the bookstore! I read the series during middle and early high school and fell in love with the winsome threesome. I finished the book in around 3 hours so it was quick read but I really enjoyed. Myracle kept the core of the characters' personalities the same, but also allowed them to change and grow like someone in college would. This book had more substance than the others in the series which I enjoyed. It was easy to relate to the characters and highlighted ...more
This is most definitely not a book I would ever pick up in a thousand years, quite the opposite really, mostly because of the title (I even took a picture to show my friends and laugh). Then I saw who it was by and I remembered reading the first book in this series when I was in fifth grade (?) and I felt compelled to finish it off. While I was in middle school the girls were in high school and now as a junior in highschool they are in college. It was a very fast read and a pretty typical "teena ...more

Read as digital arc.

I was excited to see yolo join the ranks of the college-age young/new adult trend that's happening. It was especially nice to see the transition with characters we already know. As always, Myracle both delighted and horrified me with the latest edition to her oft-challenged series.

I have mixed feelings about the girls continuing to communicate via IM when FB chat is a thing, and still cannot tell Maddie and Zoe apart because they both use black font. But, I have to admit thi

I was almost a bit scared that this book would mess up my fond memories of this series. Typically, when an author revisits a series after a few years, the newest book sucks. It's obvious that the author is just in it for a paycheck and could care less about developing the story along in a way that makes sense. Myracle does none of these things. It felt like she was just waiting for the right time to start up this series again. I fell right back into Maddie, Zoe, and Angela's world like I had nev ...more

the internet girls series is very nostalgic to me. i first read it at a very formative time and it was a favorite of mine for some time. now, even though i rated it two stars, i wasn't really disappointed with it. it was a quick read and i enjoyed it (?), but story wise i found it weak. a lot of the time something would happen and i'd be like "ok this is where it's gonna pick up and it's gonna about this", but then those plot points were left as soon as they came. i found it extremely anti-clima ...more

I was not disappointed in the least by this fourth installment! I was thrilled to see that YOLO had been published. These were some of my favorite books in high school and it was fun reading about The Winsome Threesome taking on the challenges of college while I'm still trying to navigate them, too. Definitely recommended :)
To be fair, I read the first three books about seven years ago which was when I was in high school and the main girls in this series were roughly my age. In this one they are in their first year of college while I am a few years out of college (that is if I hadn't left.)
