Frosh: First Blush by Mónica B. Wagner
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I received this free eARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
At the beginning, I really enjoyed this novel. Things were looking intriguing with the 4 different viewpoints and how everyone was somehow connected to one another.
But then I just started to get annoyed real quickly because all of the characters were so stupid and naive. They thought they should be with one person because of how it would look in society or who was the most popular on campus rather than how they felt around the person they were actually attracted to. Who cares if one of the guys is nerdy and wears nerdy clothes?! If you are interested in that guy, be with that guy!!! Lord knows you'll probably have more in common with that guy than the one you haven't talked to ever but seem to think that they will be the best arm candy.
And the way the characters were so judging really got on my nerves. How can they judge someone they just met and not expect the same thing to happen to them? Karma, baby, karma.
This novel ends on a cliffhanger and another novel is to follow it. I will not be reading that novel because even though I would am interested in how things concluded, I can't read any more of the ignorance that was leaking through these pages.
I think a lot of readers will enjoy this novel, it just wasn't my cup of tea. I'm glad I got a chance to read this as a free eARC and will look forward to seeing what else will be released by this author.
