Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)

Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) - Sarah Mlynowski

Read this review, and many more on my blog October Tune!

I don't really like chick lit's, or books that revolve around romance, and this book reminded me why. Basically, April has been really excited, because she's about to have sex with her boyfriend for the first time. But her dad ruins it for her, by telling her that they are moving away, to another state!

The fact that the words 'omigod', and 'pretty please' were used made me feel a bit weird, I mean which grown up says 'pretty please'?! And what is wrong with just writing 'oh my god'? Besides the fact that April's dad and stepmum actually let her stay at the house of a friend, and her friend's mum (though they NEVER even met the mum) felt a bit unrealistic, no parent would do that, honestly. I also didn't really like the constant flashbacks, I mean I'm perfectly fine with people in books telling what happened in the past, but why not just tell it during the story, and why have all these annoying flashbacks all the time?

If I'm honest, I did like the whole 'ten things we did, and probably shouldn't have', but I was just annoyed by the fact that April wanted to have sex with her boyfriend so badly. I just don't get why teenagers feel the need to have sex as soon as possible (okay they were in a relationship for nearly two years but whatever).

I kinda figured out how the book was going to end somewhere in the middle, but there were some parts of it that I didn't expect, and that did left me quite surprised after all. I wanted to like this book, because I liked the concept, but I ended up not liking it at all; a bit of a shame.
