I'm Beatrice, a Filipina who reads books in random genres.
Received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
KissnTell is about Anais and Vaughn, high school students in a private school and best friends. They are popular merely because people call them with bad names. After being humiliated in a party, they are motivated to break out of their shells to show those bullies 'they can do better'. These girls change their styles from Plain to Fab. They made some scenes and ended up having a gossip blog.
This books deals with friendship, and teenage drama with a touch of romance. I like how different this is from other Young Adult books that I've read, I consider this as a fresh read because it gives us a little background how these paparazzi stalk famous people, get their pictures and make money out of it. It's quite interesting and fun. I also like how the authors focus on the characters, making sure the other wasn't left out with the story.
However, I have mixed thoughts this book. There are little misspelled words and grammatical errors, but it's okay. The little romance was okay just to spice things up. In this book, I pretty much like Anais. Despite of being a pessimist and being too selfless, she has a pure soul and a kind heart. She pretty much develop throughout this book. I like how her personality stays the same.
"The lure of popularity is a powerful thing."
Sorry, but I have to rant on this. I don't like Vaughn. She's a desperate, insecure, selfish bitch. Let's just say, I gave her a benefit of a doubt. I don't like the way she treated Anais. She is a social climber. I hate her for desperately seeking popularity, to be friends with rich bitches, and forget the value of friendship. I have never been this mad to a character. She frustrated me to heck. She just craves for attention. uggh!
Overall, it's a good one but not really my favorite.
