did not like it
bookshelves: dnf

When I saw this book I thought it would be a bit more interesting and an easy contemporary for me to enjoy. I picked it up finally as an attempt to get me out of my book hangover over Queen of Shadows...But within the first couple pages I was already not a fan of the writing or the characters. I couldn't connect with them at all. The writing felt all over the place and seemed like it was just trying way too hard bringing in pop culture references. It was too much for me and I can't do it. Also, everything felt so cliché. I read the last couple pages just to see who actually did post those photos and let me tell you...predictable.
I'm really disappointed I didn't like this at all.
