Yeah I said it. Fuck this book Friday. These are for the books that make me cringe or got on my nerves while reading. Or any other matters that irked the hell out of my soul. Such as blatant stereotypes, slut shaming, racism, stupidity…etc
Now just because I say Fuck this book does not mean fuck this author. I will always give an author a second or third time. Unless their behavior or rhetoric suggest otherwise. So if you’re offended by this post, then don’t read because this my opinion and how I feel.
Without further ado lets see which book I’m telling to fuck off.
Rating: 0 stars
Hardcover: 240 pages
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin (March 1, 2016)
Be prepare for a full rage rant because this fucking book gave me a headache. I don’t care if the main character was Asian and that this book was full of diversity, this book is still fucking trash. I’m so sick and tired of the slut shaming. Like what the fuck. This book is full of it. I swear the entire book was like if you’re curvy and have big boobs than let’s assume that you’re a slut that gives it up to any and every boy that looks your way. I felt so sorry for Frankie. Especially since she did absolutely nothing except being Nick’s girlfriend. But we will get to that in a bit.
The other thing I didn’t like was how dumb Hannah Cho was. I get it, we were all teenagers once and we all did some pretty fucked up and dumb things but there was no way in hell my ass was going across country to meet someone I met and had a connection with online. Not as a teenager I wasn’t. Beside my mother would bust my entire ass.
So if you don’t know In Real Life is about Hannah Cho and Nick. They been friends for years via the internet and each of them started to develop feelings for one another. So Hannah’s dumb ass decides she wants to meet this Nick person without telling her parents where the fuck she’s going because you know….love and teenage hormones.
Gag me with a fucking spoon.
Anyway once they finally meet up that is where my hate for this book comes into play. Not only does Nick tell Hannah he has feelings for her but he also has a girlfriend. Her name is Frankie. Frankie is sweet and down to earth but too bad she has big boobs, which Hannah seem to tell every chance she gets. Not only that but Hannah has in her mind that it’s alright dislike Frankie because of said boobs. That it’s alright to slut-shame Frankie. The girl who did nothing to her. The girl who was actually nice warm-hearted towards Hannah. But because she is Nick girlfriend, Frankie is someone we are suppose to hate. You know cause she is the bad guy of the book to Hannah’s sweet “innocent” self. Frankie is supposed be cheated on by her boyfriend because she gives off that “slutty” and “immoral” behavior (which she doesn’t).
Cheating is wrong no matter what. I don’t care if you’ve been waiting forever to finally meet the girl of your dreams. I don’t care if you’re in love with her. Man the fuck up and stop being a douche. If your feelings are that strong than do the right thing and tell Frankie and end the relationship before moving on. Like common sense. Geez.
So excuse me if I think this book is fucking trash. I’m not for this nonsense. It’s bad enough that girls and women have to deal with this sort of shit in real life. I don’t want to read about slut-shaming in a book. A book written by a woman. Do better and stop with the girls can be friends bullshit. It’s annoying as fuck.
As for Nick, fuck is bitch ass. Yeah you’re a teenager but you don’t get a pass because you’re a teenager. I know somewhere in that puny little brain of yours you knew what you were doing was wrong. So eat and dick and choke.
If you can’t tell I won’t be recommending this book to anyone. I don’t care if it’s supposed to be a fluffy fun romance.
