Abandoned, Not for Me
Hollywood High - Ni-Ni Simone,Amir Abrams

Nope.  Not for me.  But, I can see it appealing to other readers.

 

I get the send-up of books like Pretty Little Liars.  Clearly going to be an outrageous, juicy series.  Funny.

 

I don't mind high school drama and mean-girl-ness if — like in this book — it really is teenagers in high school so intentional.  (It irritates me when supposedly immortal supernaturals centuries-old do it in other genres.)

 

I'm just not (maybe because of my age) going to get into or care about these girls.  I have little patience with slut-shaming, even when in snarky give-as-good-as-you-get comments.

Friday Reads!
Lights, Love & Lip Gloss (Hollywood High Book 4) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone
Heels, Heartache & Headlines (Hollywood High) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone
Rumors - A.C. Arthur
Revealed (The Rumors Series, Book 2) - A.C. Arthur

I will be finishing up the Hollywood High series and starting on a duology (haven't heard of a third book thus far) by A. C. Arthur that I've put off for way too long. I'm having such a good time reading and catching up with the girls in the Hollywood High series. These books are easy reads that really are a fun escape.

 

You'll realize that I'm not sticking to my March reading list. Some books really do take me forever to read and days were passing by without me picking up my kindle. I decided to re-adjust my tbr and read some backlogged books that would surely get me going again. I will eventually get to the books on my March TBR, but I will feel better with books read, under my belt, than none at all or only a couple at months end. I wish I could read multiple books at a time, but I can't.

 

I don't have plans for the weekend so, these four books seem doable.

 

Happy weekend reading everyone!

Reading progress update: I've read 33%.
Lights, Love & Lip Gloss (Hollywood High Book 4) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone

These books are fast paced page turners. Ni-Ni Simone really knows how to keep it interesting. I would give her books four stars for the inventive language alone. Even though their home lives are anything but ideal, they use all the energy to wild out at school and with their frenemies. 

 

UPDATE

 

Rich and Heather have no idea that the news, just revealed, will be their worst nightmare. I can't wait!

Reading progress update: I've read 87%.
Put Your Diamonds Up - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone

This is the third book in the Hollywood High Series. These young girls are rich, but not all that glitters is gold. They have no loyalty, discipline, scruples and have learned, at a young age, that money changes and buys everything and everyone. I love the frenemy relationships and the language. Oh, the language is hysterical. After finishing book three I will continue with four and five. Book five was released at the end of February.
