Taking Chances by Molly McAdams

It’s just one of those things that’s so ridiculous i love it. No joke – i could list 10 reasons off the top of my head why i should hate this book. But this thing defies logic. I grinned like the Cheshire Cat through this thing (even at parts that i KNOW were meant to be sad – they were just too awesome to be upsetting).

story line – naive chick falls for 2 dudes immediately upon arriving at college. Antics ensue. So much drama. But the writing is really simple (and full of grammatical errors. and missing indications of changes in time/place) which saves the book. It just feels like it doesn’t take itself seriously – and therefore neither did i.

I’m going to call this a case of “right place right time.” I’ve just read so many damn intense ridiculous books that felt like they were trying to yank my feels through my nose. This thing had the subtlety (and hilarity) of an elephant on rollerskates. I read nearly the entire thing in one sitting bc i could not put it down. The drama went up up up and so did my happy.

Objectively is this thing worth 4 stars? Negative, Ghost Rider. Subjectively though? It made me a happy reader – a la Mystery Science Theatre 3000. 😉
