Book: Bully | Author: Penelope Douglas | Genre: High School Bully, Dark Romance | Rating: 2.5/5
I am out of control. I am a reading machine. You know these past few book blogs?? YAH I post almost immediately after I read them. I am out of control and I can’t be stopped. (Please God don’t let me enter into another dry spell)
So I got this book on my phone and did the audio book version. I needed something to listen to while driving everywhere 24/7. When this book started I loved it! It had such a feel good vibe to it and it just brought me joy. UNTIL IT DIDN’T. Jared and Tatum are your average high schoolers and the book started out like a basic high school bully. But I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been reading so many of these but like why the hell are the guys always mad about something that ends up being nothing or misunderstood?! Why can’t it ever be an actual juicy or good reason…. Also Tatum ended up being the female MC that I despise the most. “The cool girl that’s just one of the guys.” The whole book was a verbal playlist of the douchiest rock bands ever. I’ll give you a hint… *Avenge Sevenfold* LOL. And she was literally Sexually assaulted by one of Jared’s best friends but then at the end of the book they’re “bros” and he’s going to help her learn to race. Yes she listens to rock music, she’s raised by her Dad who is conveniently out of town for the book and she has dreams of racing fast cars and working on them. Can we be anymore predictable……… I don’t know why this bothers me so much but it just does!!!
This book came highly rated and I can see why! But was just too cringe for me!! I still recommend reading it and trying because so many people absolutely love this book!
Let’s get a few things straight. No beating around anyone’s bush –> straight to the factttsss. This blog will only consist of posts that I will immediately regret after posting due to the fact that I have no business having any type of opinion on absolutely anything.. Also if you are hoping to read some genius interpretation of some of the finest literature please do both of us a favor and just block me, or whatever you do on WordPress to completely erase the risk of you reading my trash reviews that will make you instantly hate me and want to tell me why.
Also if you haven’t noticed…. I am not a writer, and I usually never reread anything. (Or am I just that bad at English that I can’t form a correct sentence?) So if bad punctuation and incorrect use of words drives you crazy please join the people who already hate me because I am a disgrace to book bloggers everywhere.
This is my little oasis where I can drink my wine, probably get a little too tipsy and post my reviews about the books that I am usually too embarrassed to openly say I am reading. (Why do I still love young teen love, gross)
Okay now if you are a visual person and want to know what kind of blog this is. Picture a trashcan on fire. No further explanation needed.
