Audrey, Wait by Robin Benway

I had heard a lot of good stuff about this book, so naturally I wanted to find out what the fuss was all about. Now, though, I am going to stick even more to the fact that just because a book is popular, doesn't mean it's any good.

Don't get me wrong, the plot was fresh and I can't count how many times I laughed out loud, but seriously, we can do without all the cuss words thank you very much!

Audrey's character was likable and seemed like she was going to be different and not have some clone personality. Er, so I thought until she goes and makes-out with a rock-star at random. I mean gosh, at RANDOM? Sounds like some Hollywood reality show stunt or maybe all that loud music was affecting Audrey's thinking?

I could see why some people really love this book. It's your average fantasy love story gone-wrong gone-right or the tale of an unexpected ride to fame. Some people-like me-might not enjoy this book because it had too much language. 

Either way, Audrey Wait! was still a disappointment [sniff] (especially after I won this book in a contest) and I won't be recommending it. Next time, Benway, please write something that won't make your ears ring every time a character says the "f" word.

Ive read so much praise about this book, I was surprised to find out you didnt particularly enjoy it. I guess, we all have our different opinions right? I havent read the book yet. I want to but now I'm just glad Im not missing out on anything special.
