The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart

Today's book is The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart! The description of this book is:

Ruby Oliver is 15 and has a shrink. She knows it’s unusual, but give her a break—she’s had a rough 10 days. In the past 10 days she:
lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list),

lost her best friend (Kim),

lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket),

did something suspicious with a boy (#10),

did something advanced with a boy (#15),

had an argument with a boy (#14),

drank her first beer (someone handed it to her),

got caught by her mom (ag!),

had a panic attack (scary),

lost a lacrosse game (she’s the goalie),

failed a math test (she’ll make it up),

hurt Meghan’s feelings (even though they aren’t really friends),

became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch)

and had graffiti written about her in the girls’ bathroom (who knows what was in the boys’!?!).

But don’t worry—Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more lists.

This book was great! I read this book the first time a couple years ago, but I picked it up again because it's part of a 4 book series, and the third one just came out. I wanted to read the first 2 again before I started the 3rd one. It was even better the second time around! I love the Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart because they're so funny. They're very realistic and a lot of things happen in them. Ruby is one of my favorite book characters. She's so funny and spunky. I feel bad for her in this book! This is definitely a good read and is definitely a quick one! Hope you guys enjoy :]

PS: The Midnight Twins coming soon! ;]


  1. lol looking foward to reading this books. It sounds really quick and hopefully will occupy my time since my boyfriend broke up with me. Maybe this book will help me through it.


  2. Tabatha,
    Glad you're going to read the book! I'm sure it will help you through your break up. If you like this one when you're done, you should continue with the rest of the series. Those will probably help as well, especially the third one. Happy reading :]
