Okay okay let us rewind!! I stumbled upon this book while looking for new books to read. When I read the title, I was a little intrigued. Aside from the title being near to The Maine's (my favorite band) acoustic single Lovely Sad, the fact that the words lovely and vicious were put together really piqued my interest.

Whenever I finish reading an amazing book, I clam up! I have no idea how to express my feelings. So yeah, I loved this book so so so much!

As depressing as the quote above is, I wasn't really depressed by this book. Maybe sad and at times a little tearful, but this book was a medley of teen angst covered in some pretty wicked humour. First and foremost I should probably stress that I do love teen angst, all kinds of it! I love going through the awkwardness, unnecessary self loathing and torturous

The ending!!! Why? No!!! Not yet, it shouldn't have ended yet!!! (The only thing that's keeping me calm right now is the existence of two more sequels).

I am quivering and hyperventilating right now for all sorts of reasons over this book- this recklessly funny, murderously beautiful, and unexpectedly amazing book! One moment I was just in a totally relaxed mode, enjoying this cutesy, romantic, harmless little book, laughing out loud over the witty and hilariously funny dialogues...

✦ Mental health issues.
✦ Bad Break ups.

This story is remarkable and unforgettable! It caught my attention and just sucked me in without a care in the world! This story is about a girl named Isis, who moves from Florida to Ohio to start over little did she know that she would start a war with Jack the Ice Prince + coping with the past+ taking care of her mother. Isis and Jack are both mastermind, conniving people but that only makes the events and banter that happen between them so much more hilarious and heart g

It's just that... I really, really wanted to like this. But I just can't. I mean, I'm not the type of reader who does this DNF-ing thing, but I was forced because I can't tolerate the immaturity of this book. Yes, there was a ton of it and it was getting annoying every single second and it was already getting on my nerves to the point that I could no longer take it.

A Cliffhanger? A CLIFFHANGER? How did I miss this? How did I get to 99% and still not have a clue until I saw the word “acknowledgements”? I swear if it hadn’t been the middle of the night and my husband hadn’t been sleeping beside me I would have been doing this…



The story was just too great and the cliffhanger too drastic for me to just… sit here and WAIT for book#2! Waah!

This is the story of Isis, the new girl! Isis who came from Florida to Ohio and she wants to make a new start leaving everything behind her. Somehow she stars a war with Jack aka Ice Prince.

This story is so much more than what I just described. This is a story full of emotions and love! Love on so many different levels! Most of all, this story is about pure and innocent love! I laughed

I am beyond glad Goodreads recommended this book to me. This book was so much fun to read and oh man that ending!!!

Isis is a girl moved to a new town which means a new high school. At a party one night she sees Jack work his horrible self on someone and she felt the need to stand up for them. Well Isis and Jack have just met each other’s match. Her way of staking her claim of a boy- hating-self-proclaimed-bad-girl; was to literally punch Jack in the face. BOOM. And there it begins.

Lovely Vicious viciously took my heart and stomped all over it. I loved this book so god damn much. I'm sad it's over but I am more than happy to dive into that second book.

Isis Blake is probably the most insane character you will ever meet. However, I feel in love with her instantaneously. She is also a god damn bad ass. I could probably just write this review all about how I love her. Okay, I'll go on. Isis is such a god damn bad ass that she will fuck up anyone she meets. Well, until she meet

This book was by no means realistic but it was still decent. I would say its definitely YA and if you are against immaturity do not read this because there was a ton of that.

Isis, former fat girl, has moved to small town Ohio from Florida with her mom. This is her chance to start over. She has a good personality and is loud and talks a ton.



Almost to the point where she won't shut up....Most of the time its hilarious though...But other times you are like

What the holy fuck? That was like watching Sloppy Firsts collide with Pretty Little Liars and Paper Princess at hyperspeed, providing a massive splash of glittery blood. It's shiny, but it's also slimy.

I highly enjoyed the first half. Isis, our MC, is very funny and I mean it. I highlighted many quotes and laughed out loud many times. It reminded me a lot of Sloppy Firsts : a smart and witty heroin who's not the most beautiful girl ever but who manage to survive high school thanks to her sharp t
