After Adorkable I just couldn't wait to read more by Cookie. I think that Ninja Girl was adorable and a quite funny story. Usually there's always a guy who saves a girl and this time it's the other way around.
However, this time was the first time ever, that I asked myself if I was just a bit too old for the story. ...more
I loved Cookie O' Gorman's Adorkable which Is really an adorkable read and when I heard that she's releasing another adorable book featuring Ash as the main lead, I was very eager to read it. I loved Ash and Snow as much as I loved Becks and Spitz from Adorkable. They are both fun characters and complete opposite to each other but we know opposites always attract. I liked the fun concept of this story where the girl protects the boy and not th ...more
From the moment I read the title, I knew I had to read this book.
Like who wouldn't want to read about a girl who was amazing at martial arts and was a ninja?
Especially since this was the opposite of most books.
Snow was the bodyguard of Ash and could easily take him down. Every time she'd be fighting someone, I'd be cheering and laughing.
It was also hilarious and sweet seeing Ash trying to win Snow's affection while Snow stubbornly refused to admit that she did like him.
Although I don't usually read contemporary YA fiction, I was willing to try this one because the plot fascinated me from the get-go! And I was DEFINITELY not disappointed! This novel hooked me in right away, and didn't let go until I had devoured it completely! In fact, I'm now wishing it had been just a bit longer, so I could have rem ...more
I was so happy when I learnt that Cookie O'Gorman was giving Ash his own book. I really liked Ash in Adorkable, and wanted to read his story. I was even happier when I saw that it had alternating POVs. But I didn't like Ninja Girl as much as I did Adorkable. I loved the concept of a badass female bodyguard, but I didn't particularly connect with Snow or her friends. The death threats seemed kinda silly, and the whole thing was a little too transparent. I liked the second half of the bo ...more
I particularly enjoyed the role reversal in the usual bodyguard trope with Snow kicking a** (no, not Ash, even if she is occasionally so inclined) and taking names.
Maybe the villains were not all that mysterious, and I might have wished for a bit more drama with the Buchanan brood, but all in all I had a lot of fu ...more
Just like her two other contemporary companion novels, this one made me laugh, smile, and scream. This honestly might be my favorite, though Adorkable comes in very close second. The banters between the main characters were great, but also among other characters too. Ash and Snow both have so much sass and it's one of the best traits I see in a character. The romance was definitely believable and there was a lot of angst.
Snow's mother might be my favorite though. She was cold, but can kick anyon...more
So much love for this book! I fell in love with Cookie O'Gorman's writing and characters in ADORKABLE and couldn't wait to read Ash's story. Ash is a soccer phenom and the nemesis of the main love interest in ADORKABLE. So of course finding out not only is he in NINJA GIRL but we also get his point of view, and I was beyond excited. NINJA GIRL does not disappoint. Told from alternating points of view, we get to meet Snow-Soon Lee, a total bad-ass at martial arts, but not so mu ...more
“Immensely,” he said. “Distracting you could become one of my favorite pastimes.”
“You’re killing me here, ninja girl.”
I turned to fin ...more
I adored Ninja Girl. I adored it so much. I thought I might considering I loved Cookie O’Gorman’s Adorkable, but I loved it even more than that book. Ninja Girl was one of those books that made me happy the entire time I was reading it. It was so cute!
Ninja Girl is a book I will want my daughter to read when she’s older because of how Snow’s character was portrayed. It’s how every female character should be portrayed. Snow was physically and mentally strong, and s ...more
First, its insta-love. Make peace with that before you read.
This. brought me back a few years when I read loads of cheesy sappy contemporary romance.
I dont have a problem with that.
My last contemporary was not so high on my favourites, actually, I didn't even put it on my goodreads.
Thus, ninja girl was a very welcome change. I dont know if that's biased or whatever, I love it for all it ...more
I love that Ash got his own story. Snow is a badass and I loved her.
Just as fun and fast as Adorkable. Definitely recommend if you want some light reads than you can read in one sitting.
HONESTLY. I FEEL LIKE THIS WAS KIND OF LIKE A COMBINATION OF MY 2 FAVORITE CONTEMPORARY NOVELS (ON THE FENCE & WELL OBVIOUSLY ADORKABLE) <333333
Snow is one of my favorite female protagonists out in the book world and I literally loved that Ash accepted everything about her - especially the fact that she talked to her Bruce Lee poster - with no questions asked. I want my own Ash and I love how he was chasing after Snow despite her not believing it. I'm s ...more
