A golden boy in a Jack Wills hoodie. They have nothing in common but a pair of cheating exes. I mainly picked up Adorkable because it said that the main character was a blogger. I thought that it might be interesting and it was contemporary as well, which is a major bonus.

Drama and dystopia, fact and fiction, horror and history, crime and classics, thriller, mystery, short stories, doorstoppers, biographies and books of lists and everything in between.

This does occasionally, therefore, include chick lit and young adult literature, the former of which I often enjoy, the latter of which I rarely do. So, with the assurance to myself that I read everything in order to give as many people as possible a suggestion of something to read, I set myself off reading Adorkable. I did enjoy the book. A quirky, individual blog-obsessed teenage girl keeps kissing a hotter-than-hot cool teenage boy and I kind of figured that was all I was going to get.

Thanks to convoluted circumstances, she lives alone at seventeen years old my thoughts on this sort of aspect of the book are below and dresses however she wants, is respected across the globe via her Adorkable brand and lifestyle.

What occurs is a curious love story in which both parties have very strong antagonistic feelings towards one another. This is not a story of true love overcoming all odds — this is one in which the characters have real emotions and the politics and problems of dating at the other end of your social spectrum become all too clear. Jeane is certainly suffering with a personality disorder of some kind her backstory leaves you in no doubt as to the cause of this and Michael is rather vain and too busy being concerned with how his hair looks and what his friends are doing to really have any deep thoughts.

There obviously are these success stories on the Internet, but Jeane seems like an impossibly extreme example. There seems to be a good deal of a Mary Sue about her. However, there is far more too her than that. The love story appears halted almost instantly.

Clearly, that changes, but it does add an extra layer to the whole thing. The strangest thing about the book, maybe, is that Jeane never once mentions Tumblr, and she is the sort of girl who would be over that website like a rash.

Much is discussed via the medium of Facebook and Twitter, both of which are valid social networking platforms, but for what Jeane seems to be trying to achieve, Tumblr would make far more sense. Of course, she may well use it but given that every other website from Etsy to Gawker is mentioned, it seems a curious omission. I flipped and flopped so much over it, sometimes mid-chapter, because something would happen that would cause me to scoff in its ridiculousness, but then it would become heartfelt and real again afterwards.

The ending is nice, but weaves its way there in such a curious pattern that I thought I was going to detest its finishing line. It talks about sex in that matter-of-fact way that the kids seem to these days Christ, I sound old but maybe Manning is trying to hard to be cool. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Book Review: Adorkable by Sarra Manning

Buy Adorkable by Sarra Manning at Amazon. Share on:. Michael Lee has good looks, designer clothes, and parents who push him to excel at everything. They have nothing in common - so why do they end up kissing so often? Good question, and Sarra Manning's novel doesn't quite answer it properly. This is something of a case of insta-love, and while the romance between the pair develops fairly well in the end, it irritated me quite a bit to start off with because they seem to get together ridiculously quickly. One moment they're finding out that their current boyfriend and girlfriend are spending rather too much time together for either Michael or Jeane's comfort, the next moment their tongues are stuck down each other's throats.
