Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
I know people really loved this one but it just didn't work for me. I don't really understand all of the love for this book and the romance within in. I just found Ignifex to be one of the worst love interests I have ever come across. He isn't one, he's just a giant douche. Plus, he is hundreds of years older than our teenager narrator who he then sleeps with. That's not romantic, that's gross. If you want to check out my review then you can find it here.

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
|I'm sure the Gestapo just LOVE picnic stories!|
Every Day by David Levithan
|How I came to feel about D.L.|
"his size comes from negligence and laziness, a carelessness that would be pathological if it had any meticulousness to it. While I'm sure if I access deep enough I will find some well of humanity, all I can see on the surface is the emotional equivalent of a burp."
Way to practice what you preach. VOMIT! Not a fan, won't be reading your books again if your message is accept anyone for who they are no matter what, unless they are fat and then they're clearly the most disgusting human being on the planet. LOVELY. If you wish you read my review of this one then you can find it here.
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
|To those who found this romantic.|
I just don't get why this book became popular, I'm sure the hype convinced people that they loved this even if they really didn't. It's not well written, in fact is laughable just how bad it is. It's not a romantic story at all, it's yet another book romanticising controlling relationships with partners who are basically abusive in the way they treat their partner. I hated Anna, I hated Christian and I hated the fact that this was Twilight fanfiction. This had over 500 reserves at my work at one point and that is just sad. This is why hype is such a bad thing, I'm sure there are decent, well written erotica out there but this just isn't one of them.
