Not Pretty Enough Blog Tour

I'm part of the Not Pretty Enough by Jaimie Admans Blog Tour! Check out the other hosts of the tour here.

“New Year’s Resolutions:
1. Lloyd Layton will know I exist. He once said three whole words to me, so this is obviously progress. If I don’t get a proper conversation out of him soon, then I’ll take my top off and streak through the cafeteria, because nobody could fail to notice these boobs.
2. I will not get expelled for streaking through the cafeteria.”

Those are the words that begin her mission.
Chessie is fourteen, not pretty enough, and very much in love. Lloyd Layton is hot, popular, and unaware of Chessie’s existence.
Her goal is clear: to get Lloyd to love her as much as she loves him, and she has exactly one year to do it.
As Chessie’s obsession with Lloyd reaches boiling point and she starts to spin a web of lies that spiral out of control, Lloyd turns out to be not quite the prince she thought he was. Can Chessie avoid the gathering storm before things go too far?

This book was definitely an easy read, and I always like to have one of those in between my serious ones.  I definitely think I would have liked this book much more while I was in high school, because I would have been around the same age as the characters.  But, otherwise I though it was an okay book.  It is set in Europe, so there are some phrases that aren't common in the US, but it's neat to see how they say different things as well.  I don't want to give too much about the book away, but it's about a girl who basically does everything she can to get a boy to like her, and all of her mishaps in between.  There are definitely some laugh out loud parts throughout the book.

I give this book 3/5 stars, because it wasn't too serious and it wasn't really on my age level, but I didn't hate it either.

There is also a giveaway going on throughout the book tour ($40 Amazon GC + swag), enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below.

The Sunday Currently

Reading:  I'm in between books at the moment.  I've kind of started 3rd Degree, and Beautiful Creatures, and never finished Firefly Lane. 
Writing:  I spent all day yesterday writing a memo for my tax class, so I'm kind of done writing for at least today.  
Listening:  Fried Green Tomatoes is on Lifetime at the moment.
Thinking:  Of how much I have to do this week.  A golf tournament for work, a job interview luncheon, and a test in my Wednesday night class.
Smelling:  My brother's eating some blue raspberry italian ice.
Wishing:  I could get this kidney pain to go away.  I've either got an infection or stones.  Trying to wait till tomorrow to make it to the doctor instead of urgent care.
Hoping:  This job interview goes well.
Wearing:  A sundrop t-shirt and norts.
Loving: having time to relax today.
Wanting: This weather to keep being beautiful.
Needing:  To study for my test.
Feeling:  Pretty rough today.

I lead a busy but boring life...

I can't decide what kind of life I lead.  It is incredibly busy, but also incredibly boring at the same time.

I go to school on Monday and Wednesday, every other Tuesday I have a committee meeting, I start orchestra on Thursday nights this month too.  And, every other day, I do homework.  Not to mention I work every day from 8:00-4:30.  So, yes I have a full life.  But, it leaves no time to do anything else.

How in the world do you meet people in the grown up world?

But, every Saturday night I find time to lay on the couch and watch TV.  Which means that I do have time to meet people, I just don't think I know how.  Any suggestions?

This is probably the most random post I've ever written, but hey who cares? It's my blog.
