I read a lot of books that I don’t end up reviewing for whatever reason. Some because I wasn’t impressed. Some because I didn’t have the time. 566 more words

Yesterday, I finished Ugly Girls by Lindsay Hunter. And more than 24 hours later, I’m still not entirely sure what I think of it.
A lot of reviews on Goodreads had classified this book as edgy, something that kept you on the edge of your seat throughout it. 380 more words
Like me, I’m sure you’ve seen all the top lists of 2014 floating around the inter webs in celebration of the last week of 2014. I’m a big fan of lists, so I thought it would be fun to make a list of the top seven last minute book finds I’ve added to my TBR list thanks to these end of the year lists (and other book recommendations I haven’t mentioned yet this year). 578 more words
Lindsay Hunter’s debut novel isn’t just about ugly girls. It’s about ugly people, ugly places, ugly lives—“ugly” being used on the deeper, moral level. Hunter presents a host of unlikeable characters living in a box-store world, Denny’s and Circle K and Payless and McDonald’s, trailer parks and cul-de-sacs, where alcoholic mothers suck on brown bottles and oversexed adolescents find that the only fun to be had lies in the back seats of cars and doing doughnuts in a Walmart parking lot. 1,404 more words
