Okay, you win-- and a review!

I will keep the blog! You all had nice, kind words to say about it and I realized that even if I'm making a difference to only 1 of you, at least it's something :)
Thanks for all the kind words! And for now, I'm going to cancel the contest until further notice, but only because I'm going to change the prizes and such.
Here's a review for all you lovely people!

Today's book is The Naughty List by Suzanne Young.
Here's the description:

As if being a purrfect cheerleader isn’t enough responsibility! Tessa Crimson’s the sweet and spunky leader of the SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens), a cheer squad–turned–spy society dedicated to bringing dastardly boyfriends to justice, one cheater at a time. Boyfriend-busting wouldn’t be so bad . . . except that so far, every suspect on the Naughty List has been proven 100% guilty!
When Tessa’s own boyfriend shows up on the List, she turns her sleuthing skills on him. Is Aiden just as naughty as all the rest, or will Tessa’s sneaky ways end in catastrophe?
The Naughty List. Is your boyfriend on it?

I thought this book sounded pretty interesting! I mean, I would love to be on the Society of Smitten Kittens (although, I really would want to change the name) and bust all those cheaters! Part of me liked this book, but part of me didn't. I liked the story line and the characters for the most part, but there were just little things that bothered me. One thing was how Tessa always said things like "Oh, that's strawberry smoothie!" or something equally preppy/valley girl. I mean, I liked Tessa and everything, but sometimes she just got a little too peppy for me. Another thing that kind of bothered me was the ending. I was like, HELLO??? What are you guys doing! But, of course, then I realized there's a sequel coming out. So, that could probably make it better.
Overall, I'd say this book was okay. It wasn't amazing to me, but it wasn't bad either. If you like unique plots with upbeat characters, this one's for you. It's out on paperback so it shouldn't be too expensive. Hope you guys enjoy! Happy Reading :)
