HEY Y'ALL ITS BEEN SO LONG BUT HERE I AM WITH A REVIEW FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS I READ LAST YEAR (one i wrote right after finishing the book back in July)....
NICE TRY, JANE SINNER
COMES OUT TOMORROW JANUARY 9TH
Nice Try, Jane Sinner is absolutely unputdownable. It's one of the most addicting books that I've read in a long while, and I would definitely recommend this book to just about everyone. Jane Sinner is snarky, sassy, and frankly not a nice person at all. And I'm here for it. This book is hilarious and heartbreaking and simply put: special. One moment you'll be laughing your ass off, the next you will be contemplating the meaning of life. It's philosophical and psychological and just wonderful. I think the strength of this book lies in its hilarity and bluntly honest writing. Sinner's voice is incomparable to any other in YA today. It's something else, really. I loved seeing the world through her eyes, because she is cynical, and selfish, and truly terrible- but you can't help but root for her as she tackles the reality competition that is House of Orange. I absolutely loved House of Orange because it took all of my favorite reality game shows and merged them together in intense glory. I sort of feel this book was written for somebody who enjoys reality shows like I do. I'm competitive as all hell, and so is Jane and I loved her because of it. There is one plot point I wasn't a fan of- but it served it's purpose. I also didn't realize the different ages all these characters were- makes sense though as Jane goes to a Community College. (But if you like age gap relationships you might like it!) I loved, loved, loved Robbie. Oh my god loved him so much. Throughout all of it, I loved him. That boy is a special gem and I will never forget him. I just loved all of these characters- especially Jane's sister Carol- I loved how their relationship was fleshed out. I loved the dynamics of religion and how it's important for some characters and not for others. The existentialism is superb- I loved the few of Sinner's assignments we got to read. Also: Jane's journal (Where this story is told) is so real- I loved reading her inner-turmoil and conversations with her doctor lmao. Ultimately, I really adored this book, and I cannot wait for more people to get the chance to read this. Another thing: I want t-shirts that say SINNERS ARE WINNERS
