I first heard about this book over on Kate's blog and ever since I have wanted to read it. I don't buy books (only if I really want to) because I can't afford it, so it took a really long time to get this in my hands from the library. It's fine though because it was worth the wait. In the last year I haven't really been motivated to read. A few years ago I used to read so much and vividly remember finishing a book in a day and thinking that getting a stack of books from the library to read was fun. I just wish I could do this now, but school really takes the fun of reading away, mostly just because school takes up 95% of my life.
Anyway, let's talk about the book. It's called Never Have I Ever, My Life (So Far) Without a Date. I'll tell you my thoughts on the book! As Kate said in her post, Katie's life without having a boyfriend is extremely relatable, and it was for me as well. I'm still young, but social pressures have led me to believe I should have had a boyfriend or various by now. I know, I know. Katie talks about her life experiences in the boy department basically, and it's hilarious. You will most definitely laugh out loud at least once. I think I have a very similar thought process to her, so it just makes it all that much more reliable. I think she's sweet and you will probably want to be her best friend when you're done reading the book. She discusses her life in elementary school all the way up into college and adulthood. The underlying message of the book is that it really is okay to be single, and if you don't end up single in the future, then that's okay too.
Would you read this book?
