I wanted to give this 3,5 stars buuuut Goodreads wouldn’t let me.
I received this book by the lovely Shelby Mena BUT that doesn’t mean this review won’t be 100% honest.

I rarely read books like this so I didn’t know what to expect by X. It was a quick read, the writing style was smooth and easy to read, and the plot was well paced, (except for a few party scenes that I found repetitive and a bit unecessarry). Most characters were well developed and I found myself liking the main character Tamra.

I received a copy from the author for an honest review so I want to thank her for giving me this opportunity.
I was super intrigued by the synopsis and the fact that this book is based on real events. I knew immediately that this book will probably ruin me. It started super dramatic and intense and I was instantly captured by it. It got me asking myself a lot of questions regarding some of the characters right from the start. The whole plot centers around an up and coming LA actress and the week

Spoiler Free Review

This book was honestly such a page turner. The X NOVEL follows the life of Tamra who is an upcoming actress about to attend her first film premiere. The events that follow are not a rags to riches story but more how the lifestyle of LA seeps into the lives of our youth and how fame and fortune DOES NOT buy happiness. Unlike the cliche celebrity life, this book focuses on real issues with real people, and how not every person you meet in LA is self absorbed or after more

HOLY SHIT. GUYS!!! I just finished this book and I am still reeling!!

Let me start at the beginning! After reading the synopsis for this book, I was slightly intrigued. I assumed it would be a little like Gossip Girl mixed with Pretty Little Liars. I thought it would be an easy read that I could float through while still being able to take care of my other obligations. NOPE. I WAS WRONG..

X NOVEL has officially ruined my life. I started it on a Thursday, while at work. BIG MISTAKE. I couldn’t

After a few slow and painful days had passed and we finally arrived in Austria I swallowed the fantastic phenomenon X. the novel is in one sitting.
X. the novel is inspired by actual events, it gives us a peek into the life of Tamra, an actress, whose best friends from back home, Maddy and Amelia, have come to L.A. for the

I am still not over this book. IT IS SO GOOD PEOPLE! First, I loved how easy I could read it on my phone wherever I am. Although in public, I did get some stares because I cannot help my shrieking or laughter in parts where it permitted. I got caught up for the first few days reading because of work and back to school preparations but when I got a certain part, I read the rest of the book the same night! (BTW I am still recuperating from it).

There was no shortage of sheer genius the author gave

I received a copy of “X.” by Shelby Mena in exchange for an honest review. However, it will not influence my opinion on the book.

The book starts rather promising. Based on actual events and opening up with an intriguing scene, it captured my attention instantly.

First of all, I enjoyed the writing style of the book. Hands down, it was flawless. Catchy, dynamic and VERY easy to read. The book circles around the life of Tamra, an L.A. actress that has the premier to her movie just happening. On
