Review/Giveaway: Lovely Vicious By Sara Wolf



Synopsis

Fire meets ice. Love meets hate. 

Seventeen-year-old Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, nine weeks, and five days, and after what happened last time, she intends to keep it that way. Since then she’s lost eighty-five pounds, gotten four streaks of purple in her hair, and moved to the Buttcrack-of-Nowhere Ohio to help her mom escape a bad relationship. 

All the girls in her new school want one thing – Jack Hunter, the Ice Prince of East Summit High. Hot as an Armani ad, smart enough to get into Yale, and colder than the Arctic, Jack Hunter’s never gone out with anyone. Sure, people have seen him downtown with beautiful women, but he’s never given high school girls the time of day. Until Isis punches him in the face.

Jack’s met his match. Suddenly everything is a game.

The goal: Make the other beg for mercy. 

The game board: East Summit High.

The reward: Something neither of them expected.

My Review

5 Awesome, Unique, Hilarious Stars!!


I can't believe I didn't read this book sooner! *Smacks self* My friends were telling me how good this book is and all I saw was YA and then told myself ahh I will read it another time since I am not in the mood for a YA.I grew out of YA I guess well thats what I kept telling myself until I read it. Hellooooo new favourite book! This book was just brilliant!

“She was probably a trusting, naïve girl before him, like a daisy.And then he came, and pulled her petals off one by one, forcing her to surround herself with thorns to survive. But he missed one petal. And she guards it with a tiger's ferocity.”



Oh and this cover? I totally love it! I could sit here and write about all the different ways you could interpret the cover and how it links with the book and blah blah but I'm sure you would be so bored reading all that so, lets get down to it ;)

“How did you find me? If you hacked into the Club’s computer to look up my appointments - "

“Whoa, I think you overestimate me, shitlord. Last time I checked all I did was be in the wrong place at the right time. I saw you and had to - ”
“Stalk me.”
“ - delicately approach you. In a sideways manner. From behind. Without being seen at all. For ten minutes.”

Isis Blake has recently moved houses to help her mum move on from her bad relationship she just got out with.It's also moving on from what happened with Isis's past relationship with Nameless <--Yup that's what he shall be called. You see Isis used to be fat and pretty miserable, and things with nameless left her feeling like she was ugly and rather depressed.But thats all in the past now she has lost weight and is at a party where she comes face to face with the Jack Hunter, the Ice Prince.

And offers me a black rose.
"I figured you'd hate flowers, so I decided to get one that matched your soul" He says. I take the flower, careful not to touch any of his long finger.” 


Jack Hunter is hot, smart and it looks like he pretty much has it all. Cold, focused and only dating older women as the rumors go but never anyone from school, so yeh everyone wants a piece of him. He isn't a normal, he was pretty much a heartless arsehole and then he meets Isis..Anddd she punches him. Great first meeting I tell you and it only gets better when she declares war! You're probably thinking oh pftt he turns all nice and they get together blah blah..WRONG! He is an arsehole you end up loving because he is an arsehole..A clever hot funny arsehole but still an arsehole..ya get me? ;) 

“Did you have fun? How many boys did you make out with?” She asks. “Seventy. At least.” “How many shots did you take?” “Fourteen. I let go of the wheel halfway home and Jesus drove me the rest of the way.” 

This is a original story which had me captivated right from the start.I think I read this in one day and was craving for more. I loved the complexitivity of the characters and how their attitude and personality contradicted what was below the surface.

“Come! Come sit by me. It’s a nice bench. Nice and lovely on the butt.”
“You’re drunk.” 
“Yeah, and you’re ugly, but do I complain about it? No! Because I don’t complain about things that I can’t change. That’s called intelligence.”


I adored Isis she is definately on my fav heroine list! Haven't read a book with a character like her she was crazy awesome! And Jack aww Jack can be a prick but you just can't hate him. It was funny how Isis infuriated him like no other and somehow between all the arguments, wars and battles lines seem to cross and something more that annoyance takes over.I loved their war and I'm looking forward to the next book to see what it holds.The plot twist and the little pieces we get from this big puzzle leaves you questioning..what really did happen in the past?Some answers are revealed but instead of it getting resolved it gets more complicated!

If you are looking for a hilarious, heartbreaking, amazing book I totally recommend this one!! 
Oh the cliffhanger..I knew there would be one but omg I did not expect that! Book 2 here I come..

  3. I love it when a girl can hold her own against the guy. I'm starting to get bored of these pathetic girls that you usually get in YA. Plus I love that she doesn't "save" him and he stays kind of an asshole. Great review, this is definitely going on my list!
