BLOG TOUR: Lovely Vicious Review

**This book contains language, some of which may be unsuitable for younger readers. 

**This is the first book in the LOVELY VICIOUS series.

First, I should admit that this book pleasantly surprised me. I didn't expect the quickness or the sass that we get from Isis, and Jack really is a cold character. It worked so well for me that I think most people will enjoy this fresh take on high school romance.

Isis is a real bubble head and I don't mean that like she's an idiot, I mean that you never know what's going to pop out of her mouth. She is so sarcastic that it's downright hilarious! There were times where I was shocked that she would be allowed to say those things and do those things, but then I thought... WHO CARES!! She sure doesn't so let her be her. There are also a lot of references in Lovely Vicious that I enjoyed. Darth Vader for one (huge Star Wars fan..hello I names my dog after a character too). There was no shortage of hilarious dialoug that will make some people love this novel just for that fact.
“Come! Come sit by me. It’s a nice bench. Nice and lovely on the butt.”
“You’re drunk.”
“Yeah, and you’re ugly, but do I complain about it? No! Because I don’t complain about things that I can’t change. That’s called intelligence.”

I have got to tell you. I have finally meet a guy character that doesn't make you swoon. What he does instead is make the whole entire population of East Summit High school fall in love with him. Literally. Don't get me wrong I like Jack. He is different from every other young adult male book character out there and you know deep down they will fall for each other, which is why I love this book. Its a very rough ride for them. I don't want the instant attraction. That gets boring. What we have here is instant hate for each other. They have a full out war going on and its downright cruel and fun! Jack is as cold as ice can get until the truth about his past starts revealing itself. As we start to see glimpses of the softer side of Jack you can't help but root for him.

I hope I'm doing this book justice because it really is different then what you would normally read. It is NOT a fall in love type book. I think it really is more about friendship and the hardships of high school. Isis has to face many obstacles and she literally takes them head on every single time with sarcasm and humor which makes every turn of the page an unexpected adventure. It's a super fun read that will cause you to wonder about the characters when your not reading. It may also make you snort milk out of your nose with laughter, so I warn you to be careful when reading. =)

If you are feeling up for a little bit of a change from the current teen romance then this is the book you want. It's similar to The Duff where is touches on high school appearance and being "ugly" but it's so much more then that. Its super hilarious, with a little bit of edge. Highly recommend you to read if your tired and in a book slump!
