I really think this book being so short did not do it any favors. I really wanted so much more from this. Everything felt really fast and kind of forced. I had such a hard time with Zuri. She’s kind of unlikable and she’s more judgmental than anyone. It’s her thing.. that people judge them and don’t take time to get to know them. Yet, she does the same exact thing to everyone based on where they live and how much money they have. It was just so tiring to hear her talk about the same things over and over. We got from 0-60 so fast with the hate to love relationship too. No depth there. I just read another great Pride and Prejudice retelling and I have been comparing them. This one didn’t come close. I just don’t think the writing style was for me or lack of story and character building. It was a really fast read and I did love the family relationship.

This one was sitting on my bookshelf for so long. It was my oldest OwlCrate book on my TBR and it was time to read it for the readathon. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Menon’s previous book, Dimple. I had heard a lot of mixed reviews on this one and it’s why it took so long for me to pick it up. I liked it okay but I had a lot of problems with the MC. Twinkle was so self-absorbed that it got quite annoying. I know, a lot of teenagers are. Maybe if I was a lot younger, I would enjoy this more. I just couldn’t get behind her actions and how everyone hated her and she was the bottom of the bucket. She really had a problem with change and growth. Even though, she finally learns it just had me rolling my eyes and not connecting with her for most of the book. Her love interest, Sahil was amazing though. It was a really fast and easy read but I just had trouble connecting with the MC.
Have you read any of these? Disagree or agree with my opinions? Let’s discuss! How do you feel about min-reviews??
