Woot woot! The science geeks are back this October, in the sequel/companion to The Avery Shaw Experiment! Wild and crazy Libby Garrett is taking her own journey and I can't wait for you guys to take it with her. I'm so excited for this book!!! I'll have a cover for you in August, and keep you updated about any fun stuff I have planned as the date gets closer. :)

Beware spoilers ahead!

Back in 2015 I read the first book The Avery Shaw Experiment. I did enjoy the book but it had it's flaws. I got an email from GR about the sequel (this book) and was surprised. Libby was one of my favourite characters and I was excited to read this. I immediately added it and then bought the e-book. I am happy to say that I liked this book!

This book takes place a year after the previous book. Libby ha
It was good to see the Science Squad back, but there was no real plot. While The Avery Shaw Experiment was well-planned and executed, this one felt like an unnecessary addition. There was absolutely zero science involved, except for some unpronounceable scientific terms used as curses whose meaning no one knows and no one might even bother to find out. The only thing I loved was how real Adam’s character felt, and the skateboarding thing was also a very nice addition. Libby’s parents are unbelievable with thei ...more

Wow. I've officially determined that Owen is a patoot.
Is that a word? Yes, it is. According to the urban dictionary, it's a watered-down word for "butt".

It's amazing how Libby transformed from the last book to the beginning of this one. She still had her strong personality, but it was directed at the wrong cause, unfortunately. It's all Owen's fault. Indirectly, he made Libby less sure of herself and her weight. But she was addicted to Owen. Even though he was horrible to her. Not really outright, but he didn't want to

I could sum up this book in one gif, really. But what would be the fun in that? I needs to share the love I feel for it, though calling it a review will be kind of a stretch. Hmm... Let's call it a gush-fest extravaganza! Yes, that's perfect. Why? Cause I got myself my first ever bookcrush and his name is Adam Koepp. F-ing swoon. Seriously. So much swoon.

Why? Why do I love every single word this woman writes? Is like she casted a spell on me. Is like she was my freaking fairy godmother. She make me laugh, cry, and have serious thoughts about my life. I mean it. I can’t believe how awesome she is.

Plus, I have the pleasure to know her (not in person, but hey! A girl can dream) and she is this funny, chatty, generous person that I freaking love. Seriously, Kelly. You’re amazing. Thank you for everything (seems like I always tell you thi

This was the most offensive, sexist, slut shaming piece of trash filled with the most horrible and selfish characters that I've ever read. I'm actually disgusted. Oh and according to this book if you are a manager in a coffee shop you are "worthless." Seriously? Fuck this book.

The Avery Shaw Experiment was one of my most enjoyed reads of 2013. It was fun, had loveable characters, and had some great messages. So I was excited when I found out there was to be another book, based or hound Avery's friend Libby.

There are some fantastic messages in the book around self-esteem; not entering relationships for the wrong reasons; the importance of friendships; and finding your niche in life, among them.

Where I struggled a little was that I didn't really care for t

Uugh! I have some very mixed emotions about this book. I really dislike being so conflicted when writing reviews. Okay, here goes.

For me, this book was just SO sexual. There were no outright sex scenes but the whole book is just full of talk about sex, innuendo, and more talk about sex. Libby is basically addicted to the sex she is having with this hot guy who won't acknowledge her outside of their private sex time (which is all the time!). He is awful to her yet she continues on wit

Libby Garret has a bad addiction. Not for drugs though, don't worry. It's this super hot and popular college basketball player named Owen. But Owen is a very bad influence for Libby because he doesn't actually care about her. He doesn't treat Libby well and the only thing he wants from Libby is sex. The sad thing is that Libby is just too blind to see it. Libby starts to 'change' her appearance in order to please Owen and pushes all her friends for Owen.

Kelly Oram is an incredible writer. She draws me into her books and I love her characters and especially love her sense of humor. The Libby Garrett Intervention was a fun read that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Honestly I'm one who prefers my books clean and this one was not a clean read. There was language throughout and lots of talk of sex. Libby and Owen's relationship is all about sex but there are no actual sex scenes and not a lot of details other than you know that they sleep together often. The

So I really REALLY love the first book in this series, and all the other books of Kelly's.

But I didn't care for this one. First of all, not trying to slutshame here, but if the shoe fits... Also, to say that she was addicted to sex or Owen or whatever is ridiculous. Everything was SO dramatic and SO over the top that I sat there going, "Really?" For most of the book that I read. The girl who cried because she's shy? Was really devastated over losing a science thing? Really? I don't know why thi

I really liked where this book went and I'm very happy I picked up this series. I wish I could award this the full 4 stars but alas, 3.5 stars is my rating. Still a very good rating for a very good book.

I honestly never would've read this book series without the recommendation so again, thank you Mandy. Even though a lot of this book is very YA and doesn't have a lot of the maturity I've seen in other YA contemporaries, there is still a lot to respect about this book and about Kelly

Review first published on my blog The Fictional Reader

I’m writing this review on the train in my attempt to actually review the books I read as soon as possible. I know my blog centers mostly around speculative fiction. But that’s not all I read. Especially this year, I want to make a conscious effort to read more genres -and spread my reading wings. This book made me so glad I made that resolution.

Libby has turned into a completely different person since she started hanging out with a college jock, Owen. She's changed her clothes, died her hair, and even started ignoring her friends. She's unaware of her changes until she's confronted by her friends who have an intervention to give Libby and ultimatum... either she ditch Owen, or they'll no longer have anything to do with her.

The truth was, I'd become a horrible person. I'd become irresponsible, selfish, and unkind. Owen had made me so afraid

Going into this I had two things in minds. One. Kelly Oram is a good author judging by the tears I shed while reading her book Cinder and Ella. Two. I have no idea who Libby Garrett is. Based on the blurb, I knew that Libby is a character from Oram’s other popular book The Avery Shaw Experiment which I’ve never read so I was wondering if I should or could skip that and jump into Libby.

I’m glad I did.

With The Libby Garrett Intervention the story moves to Avery's best friend, Libby, a smart, sassy girl who struggles with her weight and the resulting destructive behaviors in which she engages due to self esteem issues.

High school senior Libby Garrett is a big girl. She has some hormonal issues that keep her from losing weight, though she's on a strict diet and exercises regularly.

The Libby Garrett Intervention begins when Libby's friends decide to try to help her in her relationship with Owen. You see, he's not really good for her. He's not exactly a bad guy, but he's also not great, and definitely not great for Libby.

Meh. I wasn't feeling this. Liked the premise of using the 12-step programme to get over a douche nozzle, but the female MC Libby was annoying, vapid and stupid. And that's saying a lot considering she's supposed to be some brainiac. Libby is on a downward spiral, making stupid choices and ditching her friends all because of a boy. Her best friend Avery decides to stage an intervention with the help of Adam Koepp, the manager at the local coffee shop and high school dropout who seems to have qui ...more

She’s not addicted to drugs or alcohol, but she still is self-destructing because of her sexual addiction to Owen Jackson, a college guy who’s she’s been obsessed with for the last year. Her science club friends decided to step in to stage an intervention to help cure her of her obsessive traits, and banish Owen from her mind and life forever.

I love that Kelly Oram books cover topics of actual importance. Sometimes they are a bit cheesy, but always sweet and fun reads. This novel covers not only the twelve steps of recovery for those that suffer from addiction but the very serious issue of emotionally abusive relationships. I definitely enjoyed this novel.
