So I was thinking, I don't have any scheduled posts for today! (and for those who are interested, winner of my contest is announced tomorrow :D) Then I remembered that I finally got a book from my school library, and I was horribly off track with my scheduling a Kiss and Tell post...so here it is (like a week late, haha)
Kiss and Tell is a wonderful meme hosted by the awesome Aly at Fantasy 4 Eva. Visit her blog and tell her how cool she is! It's basically a meme where you kinda have a semi-review (or predictions) about a book before you read it. So far, I've been actually pretty good with my predictions. Oh, and I've already read 20 pages of this book. Whoopsies?

There's a difference between falling and letting go.
Lauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl lusts after. So why is she so unhappy?
It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: She's been holding back. She's been denying herself a bunch of things (like sex) because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the "right" thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect boyfriend?
But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren simply can't see herself in -- and as Lauren's craving for Evan, and moreover, who she is with Evan becomes all the more fierce -- Lauren realizes she needs to make a choice...before one is made for her.
Kiss and Tells: 7
-Well, I mostly picked this up for the author (I really want to read Perfect You, from what I've read on Alexa's blog!) I've heard she is a fantastic author.
-This one is kinda old, so I haven't really read any reviews
Okay, depending on how I feel when the book is over, I might just rant later. But for now, I found it funny how the protagonist talked about reading cliched girl-meets-perfect/new/mysterious-boy, predictable books. Well, 20 pages in, this seems very much like a cliched, girl-meets-old-bestie-and-finds-out-her-bf-sucks type of book. Already, the current boyfriend is a cliched "perfect" bf. Wow, why is it that the author assumes everyone thinks a boy with blond hair, blue eyes, and muscles is attractive? I've seen no personality from him so far.
Things I definitely don't want to see in this book, or I will go bananas. Yes, you heard right, bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
-The new guy, Evan, has been in love with her since they were young
-She whines about being average, but turns out to be super amazing
-She ditches her best friends who have stuck with her
-a Love Triangle of Doom
As you can probably tell, I might, just might have some problems with it. But I'm only 20 pages in, so it has tons of potential to get better! You Elizabeth Scott fans better be right :)
Wanna know something random? ;)
My mom's hand-scrub thing (the stuff that makes your hands feel all soft after the exfoliating whatever) smells like peach rings!! yumm.
