Untouchables (Empire High)

Book: Untouchables | Author: Ivy Smoak | Genre: low key HS bully, dark romance, low spice | Rating: 4/5

Okay can we address the elephant in the room? Look at this book cover? Does he look like a 16 year old boy to you? Now tell me authors aren’t a writing books like this to appease to an older audience LOL. Anyways….. this book has been surprisingly good. This book follows a girl named Brooklyn who has come to live with her Uncle in NY after her mother passed away… Her Uncle is the janitor at a very prestigious high school called Empire High…. Now the biggest shocker is that janitors get such an amazing employee discount that their nieces get free entry… Who would have known??? Brooklyn is a great MC. It’s refreshing having a girl who is actually nice and shy and not a try hard. But she does put herself in a lot of embarrassing situations… Which brings us to her HS crush Matthew. He is apart of the “Untouchables.” Which why does every popular boy group in literary high schools have to have a “name.” It always cracks me up!!! Anyways he is an awful love interest. He does not do anything for me. He is and excuse my language a class A wussy pussy. Constantly hiding their relationship and being mean to her in public… and not even a hot mean like I’m ignoring you because I’m scared…. There is another fella named Felix, way hotter character because he doesn’t give a crap and he’s a drug dealer! Aka spicy….. Anyways this book revolves around Brooklyn just figuring it out.

Warning I did bawl my eyes out at the end because I was shook. I had an idea something was happening but Ivy just went full throttle with this one!! Also will Brooklyn ever find her real dad that she’s never met??? ALSO ALSO!! Kennedy her best friend is hilarious and cracks me up! Very fun book but hoping Matt grows a pair or we get some more strong male action!

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.
