Adorkable by Sarra Manning


Jeane Smith's a blogger, a dreamer, a dare-to-dreamer, a jumble sale queen, CEO of her own lifestyle brand and has half a million followers on twitter.

Michael Lee's star of school, stage and playing field. A golden boy in a Jack Wills hoodie.

They have nothing in common but a pair of cheating exes. So why can't they stop snogging?

My review

Adorkable is a lovely book about an independet girl named Jeane Smith who is living on her own, in an apartmant in London.
Jeane starts to write a blog about the things that are happening in her life, that she loves, hates and things that might be important to other people.
Only 17 years old, Jeane makes something out of her life. She has her own lifestyle brand, earns her own money and writes for different magazines and talks on international congresses.
What more does she want?

Michael Lee can't stand Jeane at all. Eveytime he sees her, he just wants to turn around and get as far away from her as possible.
He is a good student, loves his brand clothes and his life. Everything comes easy for him. The only problem is his overprotective mother.

Two teenager and they can't be more different but somehow, so it seems, they end up together.

While I was reading "Adorkable" I could relate to most of the things that Jeane says.
I don't know if it's her unique style (which I totally loved, by the way) or if it is the fact that she is just a "normal" teenage girl looking for herself, always saying what she thinks and still she falls for the "boring" boy.

He's the exact opposite from her and did I already mentioned that I really, really like the " I don't like you - You don't like me" - Phase at the beginning?
When I read a book and they are finally getting together I'm often very disappointed because I like the excitement at the beginning but I guess and hope that I'm not the only one.

This book is different!
Even if they are together they always have something that they can't stand about each other and that makes it even more fun to read.
I like that the book is up-to-date. Like, Jeane is always on twitter (who isn't anymore) and writing her blog ( I should take some advice from her on how to organise my blog entries!).
And Michael, he's always wearing the most popular brands these days (yeah I know, it's not about the looks .. )

I've spent my last year in London and I got so excited reading the book because I knew what the author was talking about when they were around, I fell in love all over again.
While they both try to figure out what exactly it is that's going on between them it seems that their families are trying hard to make their lifes as difficult as they can.
Can they handle the things that are going on, or will there be a big bang and they can't hold it any longer?

The book is an easy read. I had a good few laughs and a smile on my face the whole three days I was reading it even though I nearly had to cry on one or two occasions.

As you can see there is something for everyone in this book!
If you don't like the story you will definitely love the characters and if not the characters at least the conversations they are having.
Well, I don't want to give away too much. - You have to read it and get into the world of geeks, dorks, bloggers and ... the cool kids.
I can just recommend the book and definitely say it was one of the best books I've read last year.
Go and grab a copy for yourself and your friend!

On this note, I quess I have to read it again ;)

  3. Outstanding review~ I actually liked this details a lot more than you did. It's a bit progressively, yes, but it's such a superb read! I'm also pleased I selected this up outside of university or else I'm sure I wouldn't appreciate studying this in an outstanding creating.
