I really thought Chloe was an awesome character, and I could see why she would want to get revenge. But sometimes things may not always be what they seem. She blackmails this dude, Will, into helping her join the Level One crowd, and oh boy, I seriously liked him. He wasn't perfect but he was pretty dang close!
There are twists and turns and interesting reveals! The writing and dialogue were A+. Now ...more
Clique Bait by Ann Valett (an Australian author!) is a high school rich mean girls revenge and fake dating story set in an American high school, with a cynical lead vowing to get revenge on the mean kids clique that did something terrible to her ex-best friend. It's full of glitz and glamour, loads of backstabbing and bitches, allegedly some hot guys (I didn't see it, sorry!), so I can definitely see the appeal of that kind of novel. I ...more
Well, I can see the appeal.
Click Bait is definitely compulsively readable. It is just so easy to fall into the story, I finished it in two days flat.
HOWEVER, there are still things that could have been further developed, and the plot twist was kind of weak.
One of the highlights of Clique Bait was the relationship between Chloe and William. It actually snuck up on me. At first they are ...more
I had SO much fun with this one. It was such an entertaining read I wanted to devour it all. I liked the fake-dating romance and how it slowly developed, I liked the determined main character and yeah, I had a lot of fun with that one and would definitely recommend it for fans of all the drama.
Full review coming soon! :)
Thank you to the publisher for the e-ARC of this book. This did not, in any way, influenced my thoughts and rating.

When I was younger, this would have been my nightmare. I never watched Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars or any of those types of trashy shows that this book is being likened to. So Ive got no ...more
This is so much more than a story about revenge or the high school "elite" - it's incredibly nuanced, and so realistic in the end. The mix of vulnerability and fierce drive from Chloe really made me root for her, and Will was such a sweet love interest. The romance is so well-written, and the relationships between the characters are complicated and layered. I consumed this book in one day, which is very rare for me, but I couldn't put it down. The ...more

This book got me hooked enough to give it 4 delightful stars. I loved it enough to keep me going but it kinda dragged on for too long. This is a revenge movie filled with teen angst and drama that ...more
I read this book when it was on wattpad and I think there was a lot of improvements but I preferred the wattpad version since it had more drama. I liked Chloes character and how she wasnt always morally right but I felt like the author held back from taking her arc all the way. The romance was cute but I think it had more potential and I felt like a lot of the characters werent developed well and couldve been more interesting. overall I liked this book but it had potential to become wayy ...more
Opening with a letter penned from teenager Chloe to her absent best friend Monica, Clique Bait quickly presents you with a myriad of questions. What follows is a story of blackmail and revenge.
I felt this book was very well written, making the characters real and vulnerable. At points, I wasn't ...more
Put simply: Basic Girl Chloe plots to get revenge on her school's elite squad. She'll infiltrate, gather evidence, and slowly build their pyre in order to get revenge for what they did to her ex-bestie. Clique Bait (get a load of that great title) tugs you this way and that, playing with how Chloe's portrayed: is this right? Is she just as bad as them? Or is it what these bitches deserve (Love, A)?
It's perfectly made for Pretty Little Liars fans - ...more
P.S. You bet ...more
