Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan Book Review

Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan

“Everyone thinks they know how everyone else is, but they’re usually wrong. People see what they want to see. It makes everything easier.”

Don’t Get Caught is a fun novel with the entire aspect of pulling pranks and I really liked how the pranks were planned/played out and how Max linked them to rules he followed from movies surrounding heists/scams. I liked the group that formed and how each of them had this different aspect they brought to the gang and their individual prank. Also the cat and mouse game with Max and his gang vs the Chaos Club was fun to read as they both tried to out each other and extract revenge. Plus I liked the ending with the video reveal.

What I didn’t like was how Max’s feelings towards Ellie, it was so instant and cringe worthy to the extent that his idolisation made the twist in the book so predictable. Another thing is with the way the book is written about a high school boy facing daily struggles the book wasn’t realistic and the school principle and town police force were are joke. Plus the whole pranks gone to the extreme and MC debating on his morals is such a cliché.

Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry Book Review

Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

“The boy everyone sees, but nobody knows is with the girl who everybody knows, but nobody sees.”  

If you’re into MC romance or just a general bad boy and good girl romance this book is probably for you. Breanna and Razor are photographed when they’re in a seemingly compromising position and from then onwards Breanna is blackmailed to do someone’s school papers.

The characters both seem to live different lifestyles but they have things in mainly surrounding their families and their baggage. The book does deal with some important issues which I think is essential in particular with Breanne’s situation and how easy it is for a guy to ruin a girl’s reputation with a picture like that.

There’s a subplot surrounding Razor’s mum which gives the book something other than romance which is good. However the main plot is on the slow build up of the romance which is full of stereotypes and angst but with a book like this you expect it. The good thing about this book is, mainly about ¾ of the book the characters have a big argument and thankfully in the book there was little to no arguments.

Generally just a fun book to read

Absence From Blogging II

Absence From Blogging II

I made a post a while back explaining why I wasn’t blogging because I was busy and how I was determined to start blogging again. That was an epic fail! However now I’m done with a majority of my exams and have some time off school, I can finally start reading and blogging again. This time I’m way more determined to blog.
