2014 blogger challenge | you're adorkable

February 03, 2014

Although I've never, ever written a blog post about blogs on 'xoliviamae,' I'm still a massive fan of them. Nothing can beat sitting down and immersing yourself in somebody elses world, finding out their motivations and then learning something about yourself in the process. It's weird. I know people who only watch films because they find books 'boring' and for 'geeks' but how can you be a movie fan without loving books too? Take the Harry Potter series. Without the books, there wouldn't have been the tale. Take 'The Devil Wears Prada.' I bet half of you can quote lines from the film, but where would the film have been without the book? Anyway, rant over.
I'm going to be reviewing the book 'Adorkable' By Sarra Manning, which I picked up in The Works a couple of years ago during one of their 'three for five pound' promotions, and I loved it. It's about a young girl called Jeane, who's a teenage blogger and if I'm perfectly honest, a little weird. She's world famous in the blogging world and thinks she has the world all worked out, but she um doesn't. This is shown by her relationship with the super cool, Jack Wills wearing Michael, who's one of the 'populars' at school and a bit up himself. But finally Jeane and Michael become friends and they all lived happily ever after. Only joking.  
I really liked the book, but thought the writing was a little dumbed down, maybe because the target audience of the book was young teens, but saying that I'm technically a young teen at 16 so maybe I'm just an uber sharp critic? Regardless, I enjoyed the book and would read it again, preferably on a beach with the sun shining down on me. Oh I wish I was on a beach now. (not joking this time haha)
Have you ever read the book Adorkable? What did you think of it?
Love Olivia x
