I was hoping for more progress this week, but right now, eh, not the best. But to be fair, I read other books in between reading books for the challenge, which explains the low number of books this week. Hopefully I will do better next week! I really want to be able to finish this challenge max by the end of June. That gives me around 6 weeks to complete this challenge, which I’m hoping will be enough. ❤ I’ll be aiming for an average of 5 books/week. 🙂 Wish me luck! Gonna be tough to reach this goal what with school and stuff, but who knows?

How are your reading challenges going? Let me know in the comments below! ❤

Happy reading!

The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West| Book Review

(Stand-Alone)

Published: May 5th 2015

Synopsis:

When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she’d been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend— two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it’s not the real Bradley she’s thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn’t even know. But tracking him down doesn’t mean they’re done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend’s graduation party — three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

Used for the Popsugar challenge: A book finished in a day

Hey there! I should’ve posted this review (along with, like, 8 more) way before, but for some reason I haven’t been able to write good reviews the past weeks. Hopefully this is passable. 🙂

The Fill-In Boyfriend was an amazing contemporary read. It was, without a doubt, fun, enjoyable and hooking, while being based on a plot of being superficial and a girl fight, basically.

Quick Summary

Gia, the main character, just had her boyfriend break-up with her. On prom night, no less. The biggest problem with the break-up is that Gia’s friends will see her dateless. Jules, a girl in Gia’s friends group, is constantly trying to out Gia, beat her somehow, and thinks Gia was lying about her boyfriend. Not wanting to lose her friends’ friendship, Gia brings in a fill-in boyfriend, who acts as if Bradley. As Gia starts to care about fill-in Bradley, Gia’s lies and friendships all threaten to come apart.

 Currently Reading

I’m so close to finishing Animal! ❤ I stayed up for a while reading it last night… 🙂
I started Love, Rosie yesterday (FINALLY!!), and am loving it (even though I’m like, 30 pages in)! I was supposed to be reading this, like, 2 weeks ago, so I’m so glad I finally started it.
And I also decided to start Four by Veronica Roth (a re-read) and while I’m not that far into it as I’m reading mainly the other two books mentioned above, I remember liking this book, and will probably enjoy it once again.

Recently finished?

The most recent ones I guess would be Angelfall by Susan Ee and World After by Susan Ee. There are other books I’ve recently finished would include Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi and… I think one of them would Ghost Story by Peter Straub? I’m too lazy at the moment to try and remember other ones. These are the only ones I can remember main ones. It’s Monday, what do you think…. wait, never mind. It’s Wednesday. Give me a break. 🙂

Read Next?

After re-reading World After, I’m more excited than ever to find out what happens, so it’s a no-brainer to read End of Days again. (Although I’ll be sad to see my trilogy end so quickly!) Ignite Me is also on my list, from last week, so I can finish up the Shatter Me series. Insurgent was also on my list last week, and I will probably read it this week, for ‘A book that became a movie’. And finally, in between these reads, I’ll probably start another review copy I’ve received, Fire in Frost by Alicia Rades.


So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! Link your post below or comment!
