Roomies by Tara Altebrando and Sara Zarr

Elizabeth (Eb) and Lauren(Lo)have been paired up to be roommates at Berkeley

 

Lo isn't too happy. She lives with her parents and five siblings. She hasn't had any personal space since the younger children came along. She had requested a single room, but that was obviously denied.

 

Eb is thrilled. Its just her and her mother at home, and she's really looking forward to the "closeness" her and Lo are bound to share. She also hopes to possibly reconnecting with her father. He happens to own a Gallery in San Francisco. Eb excitedly sends off an email to Lo just minutes after receiving her roommates info.

 

This is one of the most adorable books I've ever read (or listened to). I absolutely loved both girls. Both were realistic, likable, and had their own distinctive personalities. I listened to the audio version, and while I think this would have been a great story to "read", I think the narrators are what really brought this book to life for me. Everything the girls have ever known is about to change. This is thrilling, sad, and at least a little terrifying. The narrators did a beautiful job with bringing each girl to life.

 

I have a hate/love feel for the ending. I really wished the book had gone on for one more scene. I almost feel cheated that it didn't. However, it really is the perfect ending to the book. I think ending it any other way may have taken away the special feeling the book gave me.

2,5 stars

 

Well, what a disappointment.

 

Around 90% I realised that no devirginizing would take place.

 

I actually read two hundred and thirty pages of pajama descriptions, downright stupid misunderstandings and a so-not-believable dilemma.

 

 

Come on, you call this a love triangle? This is child's play. One guy is her long-standing love and best-friend, and the other is his asshat brother, whom she just met! Kennedy tries to appear divided, but honestly, physical attraction doesn't mean she would just ditch the man she has loved for more than a year.

 

Why drag this on? Why make an entire book about an occasionally funny internal dialogue? There is no romantic interaction whatsoever. That would probably have slightly redeemed the book from its general boredom. But no. Nada.

 

 

Conclusion: I have wasted my time.

2B Or Not 2B? (The Roomies, #1)
2B Or Not 2B? (The Roomies, #1) - Stephanie Witter London was annoying. She's the one who ran out on Byron after sex and then tried to pretend nothing happened, but then she got mad at him for getting mad and pretending nothing happened. And I was all ready to feel badly for him, but then he pulled the whole I don't do relationships thing, so I wasn't really a fan of either MC.

I am doing this one as my audio of the week 

After my epic fail audio last week, I am hoping this will be way better. 

Wish me luck!
