this book is like when you find someone's diary at work (not a co-worker's diary - that would make you a jerk) and you idly flip through it until you remember that most people are fucking boring and their innermost secrets are totally dull and most likely misspelled.
people like virginia woolf or anais nin can have their diaries published because they are either very intelligent and insightful or super sexy. these girls are just superficial.
so, these aren't diaries, b ...more
When I first started TTYL I figured what the powers-that-be thought of as “offensive” material was the fact that the entire thing was written in text format . . . .
Any “adult content” - and trust me when I say I’m using that term for lack of anything better because really the “controversial” subject matter was regarding a teacher who might have been a . . . .
And realizing that wanting to be popular might not end up being a ...more
I thought this book was pointless, drawn out, and completely and utterly useless. The main characters were nothing special; one was boy crazy, one was religion obsessed, and the other was just well crabb ...more

The strength of the characters elevates this book to a better space. Over the course of the series, these characters develop and get far more interesting. Zoe is a good girl with hidden depths. Maddie is a bad girl with hidden depths. And Angela is a ditzy girl with hidden depths. These three charac ...more
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 story lines and wondering what was going to happen in their lives next.
- Until Next Time,
I gave it plus one star for sticking to pure IMs, but this is really a one star book.
Still, a nice entertaining read (think Pretty Little Liars minus the spook and the crimes), most highly recommended to teenagers - girls especially.
This is not going to be a long review, because honestly, there's not much to talk about.
The story of three friends, Maddie, Zoe, and Angela, is told completely in the form of sms messaging. They all have their own personalities; Maddie is the rebel, Zoe the goodie-goodie who goes to church, and Angela is obsessed with boys. Maybe this is meant to represent the typical teenager. But what i ...more
And I wish I hadn't.
I'm fifteen, in tenth grade, so I think I'm supposedly the target audience for this book, because that's how old the characters were. Well, I absolutely hated it.
Honestly, "true to life"? This is nothing like the current lives of a couple of teenagers. Besides anything related to that creepy stalkerish teacher, there was no talk of gr ...more
I guess the climax of the book wo ...more
but i hate getting a book but not reading it so i decided to continue and i was glad to take this decision, Because it turned out OKAY.
I hated most of the decisions the girls made in this book, it made me angry tbh.
But i liked the dialogues, and i got excited at the end of the book.
This one was a weird book for me.
I like how it's structured like an instant messenger.
Reminds me of the good old days with MSN messenger haha.
I liked how we learned about the 3 girl's lives just through this way.
There's no main protagonist which made it interesting.
Three best friends dealing with normal high school problems.
I did find it intriguing and couldn't put it down.
Look forwards to seeing what happens in the next installment :)

This book was on the banned list due to content not appropriate for young adults. I think the content may be fine for high school students, but it is definitely not something 6th graders need to be reading. The book is dedicated to The Beers Bros. That should say something right ...more
