Book: Confessions of a Queen Bitch
Author: Crista McHugh
Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary Romance
Alexis Wyndham is the other type of Queen B—the Queen Bitch.
After years of being the subject of ridicule, she revels in her ability to make the in-crowd cower via the exposés on her blog, The Eastline Spy. Now that she’s carved out her place in the high school hierarchy, she uses her position to help the unpopular kids walking the hallways.
Saving a freshman from bullies? Check.
Swapping insults with the head cheerleader? Check.
Falling for the star quarterback? So not a part of her plan.
But when Brett offers to help her solve the mystery of who’s posting X-rated videos from the girls’ locker room, she’ll have to swallow her pride and learn to see past the high school stereotypes she’s never questioned—until now.
Oh, my word!! I cannot remember the last time I started and finished a book in one day… This is not one of my usual genres to read, and yet, I loved and hung onto every word as I read. I could even ignore some of the small grammatical errors I found while reading, it was THAT good!!!
First off, the plot made me think of a mashup of The Duff and Mean Girls – it was certainly just as entertaining as those movies were. And the story itself, damn fun to read. It had me frustrated and giggling at the same time. If you root for the romance in stories, then you’re in for one heck of a ride, and you’ll crave more when this one is done, believe me on that….
The character growth is for sure there, and, as this series progresses, I certain there will be much more to come for this main protagonist. You’ll love to hate her and root for her in every way possible. Because every one of us had that Queen B*tch we hated in school, to be reminded of. This one is different though, I promise.
Romance wise, you’ll get the frustration there, and that is all I’m saying on that front. So, if you want to find out what I mean, read this book. And recommend it to anyone who loves quirky, fun, laugh-out-loud reads about high school life….
The writing style was extremely well thought out, and gives nothing away – well maybe some, but not nearly enough to be boring. I clung to Crista’s every word and couldn’t wait for the conclusion – which I didn’t get. And now I’m in need of the second installment asap!
Now, if only I can read more of this…. Please don’t stop writing Crista, I’m definitely a fan!
