10 Second Reviews (because I’m lazy)

Hi, I’m not dead! Literally haven’t posted in over 2 weeks but I’ve got a couple of books to review. Since I’m in a very lazy mood I’m going to do 10 second reviews. You don’t want me rambling either so win win 😄

The Way to Game the Walk of Fame | Jenn P. Ngyuen 

The Way to Game the Walk of ShameTaylor Simmons is screwed.

Things were hard enough when her single-minded dedication to her studies earned her the reputation of being an Ice Queen, but after getting drunk at a party and waking up next to bad boy surfer Evan McKinley, the entire school seems intent on tearing Taylor down with mockery and gossip.

Desperate to salvage her reputation, Taylor persuades Evan to pretend they’re in a serious romantic relationship. After all, it’s better to be the girl who tames the wild surfer than just another notch on his surfboard.

Cute, fluffy fun. It’s your typical YA contemporary. Honestly, it’s pretty forgettable but it’s good if you’re looking for some filler stuff.

Wanderlost | Jen Malone

WanderlostNot all those who wander are lost, but Aubree Sadler most definitely is on this novel’s whirlwind trip through Europe.

Aubree can’t think of a better place to be than in perfectly boring Ohio, and she’s ready for a relaxing summer. But when her older sister, Elizabeth, gets into real trouble, Aubree is talked into taking over Elizabeth’s summer job, leading a group of senior citizens on a bus tour through Europe.

Aubree doesn’t even make it to the first stop in Amsterdam before their perfect plan unravels, leaving her with no phone, no carefully prepared binder full of helpful facts, and an unexpected guest: the tour company owner’s son, Sam. Considering she’s pretending to be Elizabeth, she absolutely shouldn’t fall for him, but she can’t help it, especially with the most romantic European cities as the backdrop for their love story.

But her relationship with Sam is threatening to ruin her relationship with her sister, and she feels like she’s letting both of them down. Aubree knows this trip may show her who she really is—she just hopes she likes where she ends up.

DAMN THAT’S HOW YOU CONTEMPORARY! It gave me serious Anna and the French Kiss vibes with the travelling. Loved the romance and loved Aubree’s growth so much. It was so perfect for Aubree’s adventure to end that way.

Tone Deaf | Olivia Rivers

Tone DeafHis world is music. Her world is silent.

Ali Collins was a child prodigy destined to become one of the greatest musicians of the twenty-first century—until she was diagnosed with a life-changing brain tumor. Now, at seventeen, Ali lives in a soundless world where she gets by with American Sign Language and lip-reading. She’s a constant disappointment to her father, a retired cop fighting his own demons, and the bruises are getting harder to hide.

When Ali accidentally wins a backstage tour with the chart-topping band Tone Deaf, she’s swept back into the world of music. Jace Beckett, the nineteen-year-old lead singer of the band, has a reputation. He’s a jerk and a player, and Ali wants nothing to do with him. But there’s more to Jace than the tabloids let on. When Jace notices Ali’s bruises and offers to help her escape to New York, Ali can’t turn down the chance at freedom and a fresh start. Soon she’s traveling cross-country, hidden away in Jace’s RV as the band finishes their nationwide tour. With the help of Jace, Ali sets out to reboot her life and rediscover the music she once loved.

Concept is a 10 but execution is more around the 4-5 range. It needed more depth, more development but it was a very short book. If there was an extra 100 pages maybe?

And if you were wondering what I was up to instead of actually posting:

Recap of my past 2 weeks

  • English essay crisis
  • Newfound obsession with Ariana Grande’s new album because her voice is amazing
  • Mental crisis over how much I sit in a day (it has to be over 22 hours at least)

So that’s all from me right now! I’m really stuck on what to read next. Anyone got any recommendations?

  1. Your ten second reviews are awesome! Honestly, I am currently 26 book reviews behind and I am honestly considering adapting this just so I can finally move on and see other people. I mean, books. See other books.

  2. Love your post! I love reading books but when it comes to reviewing, I’m a bit lazy too and I’m behind on lots of reviews so I can pretty much understand your problem. I recently read the way to game and the walk of shame and I absolutely loved it! 😀

  3. I totally want to do some ten second reviews now! They were super fun to read, and I think they would be super fun to write, as well 😄

    It always super sucks when the concept of a book is awesome, but the way it is executed on paper isn’t as awesome. Luckily I haven’t had too many reads like that lately, though.

    I really need to go back and re-read Anna and the French Kiss! I read it when it was released, and I didn’t have a blog, and I really wasn’t the biggest fan. So when I started blogging, and everyone loved it so much I felt like I had really missed something, haha! Maybe I need to give it another go – my reading tastes have changed a lot!

    I just finished read This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab earlier in the week, and I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a super unique paranormal YA!

    1. Exactly! It’s like the concept is a total bait 😦 And also whaaa? BUT IT’S ANNA!!! Ok, maybe it’s just my unconditional love clouding my judgement 😄 I can see why you didn’t like it though, it is pretty shallow. Will definitely have to check out This Savage Song, it already sounds great!
