Adorkable by Sarra Manning – book review
They also contradict themselves in their narrations every once in a while, which becomes clear mwnning it switches perspectives again. If you’re a blogger, you will have an instant connection to Jeane, because I feel like all of us are to a certain extent outsiders in our real life worlds.
He’s just a truly caring, golden boy. Plus, I wouldn’t really say there was much of “romance” in the book. I can’t help feeling disappointed – both in the insta-love mentioned, and in some rather strange dialogue – I felt like screaming by halfway through the book whenever someone repeated ‘totes’ for ‘totally’ or ‘blates’ for ‘blatantly’.
View all 4 comments. I spent a lot of time hating Jeane and thinking not so nice thoughts about Michael but when you reach the end, it is with a bang.
It’s also intriguing to see the usual teen problems of love, family issues, and planning for the future collide with rather more unusual ones such as Adorkabe growing fame. She is confident and blunt and doesn’t take shit from anyone.
Adorkable by Sarra Manning: review | book adoration
I’d happily recommend it for older teens. I normally read in fifteen minute bursts in the morning or evening and have adorkkable to accept that this is my reading lot from now on. Jeane Smith has half a million followers on Twitter, runs her own lifestyle brand based on being dorky, but lives on her own and has no real-life friends. She lives in London. Scared of breaking his curfew.
Aug 11, Reynje rated it really liked it Shelves: I love that he gave as good as he got and called Jeane out when she was being a ridiculous sarta being. I read this on the train.
There will be involuntary flailing and squealing – you have been warned. Goodreads mqnning the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. More of a 2. An inspiration in that I need to just be me and feel confident and reassured in that. At least not in the beginning. Adorkagle two were extremely frustrating to me to say the least. What I held against her was that she was vapid and had a really annoying voice, which was breathy and babyish and had exactly the same effect on me as someone crunching ice cubes.
Die sich am Anfang wirklich nicht leiden konnten! Its is way overdone. As soon as I heard that there was going to be a book called Adorkable, I jumped at the chance to read it! Jeane often began criticising other people for what they wore, watched or listened to, even though that may have just been what they liked which I found to be a bit unnecessary – she might like being ‘different’, but she didn’t need to force her opinions on others.
And she’s a character I guess not everyone can easily identify with as a heroine but I really enjoyed her being different than the mass of plain always the same YA main characters.
But they have to keep the relationship a secret. She can also boast having about half a million twitter followers. May 24, Marie rated it it was amazing Shelves: There were a lot of popular culture references, and that was enjoyable, but I think the book could age easily.
And yeah, I fully understand how people don’t like it, adorkabe Jeane and Michael do start janning as pain in the asses, but heyho, not everyone is Pollyanna.
Book Review: Adorkable by Sarra Manning
While I expected janning cute and quirky romance from this book, I was given an expose on modern technology, insigh Adorkable is the type of novel that will most definitely be read in the distant future, but not because of its writing quality or sheer brilliance, but because of how utterly modern it is. He thinks Jeane’s adormable ugly weirdo and thinks he’s so good-looking he can date whoever he wants. That sums up what this book means to me.
But after spending time together, they begin to see another side to one another, and they just click. I think that a lot of people will love the outspoken Jeane and the trials and tribulations of her friendship with Michael.
Jeane vociferously positions herself as an authority kanning every. I did find it interesting to see how his opinions changed and it was good to see them both exploring different aspects of how the other one lived.
She’s quite social and friendly to anyone who approaches her on Twitter. However, aesthetic, philosophical and social differences aside, each is suffering that oh-so-familiar identity crisis known as growing up, and theres plenty of the bad and awkward to go along with the good.
Despite being short and stocky with wobbly bits and a healthy attitude to sex, she needed a very hard punch in the face. Although Adorkable was told from alternating perspectives, what really made this novel stand out to me was that the reader understood Jeane at a different pace than Mike did — and that was okay.
Here’s a quote from Michael: I could totally sympathize with Micheal’s view that internet friends are not exactly real friends.
I like “popular guy falls in love with nerdy girl” books. She’s a very unique and alternative character.
