Free read Adorkable Review ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ò Sarra Manning Sarra Manning Ò 0 Read Welcome to the dorkside It's going to be a bumpy rideJeane Smith's a blogger a dreamer a dare to dreamer a jumble sale ueen C. 45 starsSo when I first heard about this book I was extremely excited I mean first up that synopsis is golden Why wouldn t you want to read about a blogging superstar kissing a hot boy There is no reasonAnyway when I pick up a book by an author I ve never heard of I like to do some research Wait before I carry on I just have to say that there is no way this next bit isn t going to sound creepy and stalkery Whatever I ve committed nowI like to do some research about what the author is like so I have a sneaky look on their website to see what kind of things they like their sense of humour that kind of thing It s just so I can get an idea of whether I will get on with their book In doing so I found out something so completely brilliant about Ms Manning Well actually I found out uite a few brilliant things about her but I focussed on one thingShe used to work for J17My sister is 3 years older than me and when we were younger we both used to pick out a magazine every Friday when we did the big shop I being 10 and mostly concerned with whether Abs from 5ive had a girlfriend and what was going to happen in the next episode of Miami 7 used to read Mizz My sister cooler than me even then picked up J17 Then after a mishap on a summer holiday didn t bring enough reading material you guys I read my sister s copy of J17I was hookedI learnt everything I know about everything from that magazine You could probably say that Sarra Manning made me into the girl I am todayExcept um well that would be cruel to Ms ManningAnd possibly slanderAnyway a couple of years ago someone scanned every copy of Smash Hits 80s era and put them online My aim is to do that with J17 Or um like pester someone else to do itI promise I m going to talk about this book now I just needed to get out of the way Basically the gist of all that was Sarra Manning is brilliant and there was an 87% that I was going to adore this bookAnd guess what I didI said earlier that my review was mostly going to be and OMG MICHAEL LEE and I LOVE YOU JEANESo let s go with that This book was like a breath of fresh air I went into this book thinking that I could turn my brain off and I d laugh and chortle a little bit and I d swoon because of kissing of the boy and I have to say if I had been hoping for that kind of book I would have been severely disappointed Because instead I got a hilarious clever incredibly witty book that reminded me of the Bonfire Toffee you get from ThorntonsBonfire toffee from Thorntons I hear you cry This book will rip my fillings outWell no It s not that much like Bonfire Toffee What I mean is that this book is sweet sugary a bit dark not your average delicious treat you wish it would last forever and it s the kind of book that you can only read when you re watching fireworks that doesn t come around often so it must be savouredYeah that analogy didn t work did it Fine I admit it I just wanted to talk about sweets so Jeane and I can be best friends already Seriously it s destinyNow usually I don t really like to talk about my own writing on here but I have to say that this is the kind of book that I want to write I don t see why everyone has to write sad books about sad things I like to think that if you took this book and hacked at it with a blunt instrument until it becomes almost unrecognisable you d probably end up with something similar to how I writeAnd I m OK with this OMG MICHAEL LEE OMG Michael Lee you are the salvation of YA boys Not many women can convincingly write from the perspective of a teenage boy without sounding too sexboobsgirlssexvideogamesbloodgutsandboobsdidimentionilikeboobs but Ms Manning can Jeane who I ll get to in a bit is such a larger than life character that I was a bit worried that Michael Lee I don t know why I feel like I have to full name him but I do was going to fade into the background and be the non entity love interest I ve become accustomed toWas heWas he eckI love that he gave as good as he got and called Jeane out when she was being a ridiculous human being I get so angry when heroines are constantly fawned over and nothing they do can be faulted Jeane isn t always likeable and she can be a bit mean and one of my favourite things about this book was how even at the end when all the things had happened he still thought she was a bit funny looking still thought she was annoying and he still thought she had horrible hair It s incredibly refreshing to have a heroine that isn t loved by all Because who isEven though there were times when they were arguing and sniping at each other that I wanted to yell Huuuug a la Mac from Green Wing their interactions were the absolute best They just zinged off each otherAlso Michael Lee is so hilarious his dry humour and his observations were always spot on I would inundate you with all my favourite Michael Lee uotes but I don t know how the publisher would feel if I posted THE ENTIRE BOOK on my blogAnd he has great taste in sweets because parma violets seriously are the most disgusting sweets in existence ErrrrughhhAnd also he s bloody gorgeous if you ignore the hair and if you picture him without the dodgy checked shirt Which I never did for I am a serious book blogger who takes books seriously and stuff I LOVE YOU JEANE As Maggie said in her excellent review Jeane Smith stole the show and she stole my heart No seriously I was eating a bag of Haribo and those suishy hearts are my absolute favourite and I save them until last and then she waltzed over and ate them all BitchI loved Jeane because she s basically me We both could snaffle an entire bag of Haribo without feeling guilty We both have bitchin blogs We both have a name that begins with the letter J I m kidding although my blog is bitchin I loved how she never backs down when she s fighting for what she believes in When Michael Lee is cruel and is a bit of a douche to her she doesn t become a simpering victim even around the middle bits when it gets all angry and sad She doesn t want you to feel sorry for her she doesn t have time for you to feel sorry for her If anything I feel sorry for Michael Lee He tries so desperately to keep up with her to get on her level but mate no chance She s running circles around you and Michael Lee I think you like itJ ADORKSeriously though I think a lot of people will have gone through the things that Jeane goes through Not in the same way of course we can t all be Guardian rated bloggers can we but the feelings of sadness and loneliness you get when you re a bit different and you re at odds with everyone And then you just get to the point where you re like You know what Screw everyone I m awesome This is what Jeane is like She is a force of nature and she s unstoppable and she s so brilliant that even when I wanted to throttle her for being awful to Michael Lee I mostly wanted to high five her and hug her even though she d probably Tweet about how boring my brown hair isWithout sounding too much like a dork I think that s my favourite thing about this book It had such a positive message for teenagers but it never crammed it down your throat with some schmaltzy Hollywood message None of this ra ra ra LOVE YOURSELF kind of thing And a bit Ms Manning gets teenagers She knows what they re like She knows that they re not always kooky and uirky but she also knows that not always depressive and sulky and slamming doorsy Sometimes I think that authors believe you can be either or She is able to poke fun at them without being patronising and cruel mostly because her observations are completely utterly and deliciously true This book read like a celebration of being a teenager in all its awkward glory It s ok to be different it s ok to have messy feelings about yourself it s ok to have messy feelings about boysgirls it s ok to be a blogger cough it s ok to be passionate about something that not everyone is passionate about it s OK to want to do well at school it s OK to go to gigs and stay out all night and drink cocktails and yes it s even a OK to have sex as long as you use protection and you re over 16 of courseYou should totes read this bookNah sorry Jeane I can t say totes seriously maybe I m less of a dork than I originally thought I just can t do itYou should totally read this bookAlso not completely unrelated Ms Manning has officially won the prize of The Author Jo Most Wants to Sit and Eat Sweets and Watch Every Series of ANTM With I think you ll agree that this is a coveted prize

Free read Adorkable Review ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ò Sarra Manning Sarra Manning Ò 0 Read Ld A golden boy in a Jack Wills hoodieThey have nothing in common but a pair of cheating exes So why can't they stop snogging. This is my favourite of all the Manning books I have read so far A YA contemporary rather than chick lit Adorkable deals with Jeane and Michael Their lives collide when Jeane s boyfriend and Michael s girlfriend fall in love Incidentally Manning seems to love these kinds of coincidences as this also happens in Nine Uses for an Ex Boyfriend What follows is an extremely loud extremely British rollercoaster rideJeane isn t anything that Michael Lee looks for in a girl and Michael isn t someone that Jeane would ever consider as boyfriend material I loved that even though it is common in YA novels contemporary or otherwise for the popular guy to be the one guy who is universally loved in Adorkable Jeane doesn t even consider him a single whit She simply does not get melty knees where he is concerned At least not in the beginning He is appealing yes but not to her And he thinks she s ugly No he really does But then in the end he loves her anywayThe strength in this novel comes from the author s determination to tell a story without romanticizing it She gives it all to us The fights the insane fights the bickering their difference in philosophies the insecurities and the flaws Oh she does not hold back on the flaws at all But she also shows the sweet parts How their romance starts their gradual procession to being than kissing buddies How both of them in their own twisted ways make the other s life a bit meaningful I loved the portion where Jeane spends time with Michael s family because her own is so messed upWhen a book makes you cry and makes you laugh you know it s a winner I spent a lot of time hating Jeane and thinking not so nice thoughts about Michael but when you reach the end it is with a bang Jeane learns some life lessons important ones and finds some truth about herself that she may have not wanted to know But at the same time Michael grows as a person too sloughing off his superficiality and becoming man enough to accept Jeane for what she is no than that to make sure she remains the way she is loud hostile and colourfulDo I recommend this to you Oh definitely One of the best contemporaries I ve read in a long time This one is no Anna and the French Kiss In fact I think it might be better Yes I said it
