Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have)

Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have)- Sarah Mlynowski

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

Ten Things We Did was a funny, contemporary read and definitely lived up to its title. Speaking of which, that title is brilliant and makes me think I should keep a list of all the stupid things we do every weekend. April is earnest and honest if only semi self-aware. Her actions throughout the book are entirely believable, although some of them are straight up stupid. I LOVE Hulaing and all the funny little jokes that make you feel like you’re an insider to this group of friends. It started slow but the second half picked up and re-engaged me. There were some really good twists in particular when it comes to the expectations of the two boys- Hudson and Noah. By the end you remember that sometimes things (and people) are nothing like what they seem. Ten Things We Did is a perfect beach read. 

Overall: A-

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

She tsked. “Is that what I was missing, Noah?”

"The list of what you’re missing, Anna, is longer than the South Beach Free Clinic’s walk-in list," Jamie said, and I was surprised to hear his voice.  "Though I’m sure your hookup resume includes the same names."
