Little Miss Red by Robin Palmer

Bonjour mes copains! Which, if you didn't know, means Hello my friends in french. Apparently I'm feeling a little cultural today, so why not! Anyway, today's book is Little Miss Red by Robin Palmer.
Here's the description:

Sophie Greene gets good grades, does the right thing, and has a boyfriend that her parents— and her younger brother—just love. (Too bad she doesn't love him.) Sophie dreams of being more like Devon Deveraux, star of her favorite romance novels, but, in reality, Sophie isn't even daring enough to change her nail polish. All of that changes when Sophie goes to Florida to visit her grandma Roz, and she finds herself seated next to a wolfishly goodlooking guy on the plane. The two hit it off, and before she knows it, Sophie's living on the edge. But is the drama all it's cracked up to be?

I'd heard a lot of good things about this book from different people, so I was hoping that it would be pretty good! I think this book, like The Naughty List, was just okay. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. I liked the plot of the book a lot because I can relate to Sophie. We both do the right thing all the time and we both love fictional characters way too much. (No, really, you'd think they were alive the way I talk about them). Also, I always love books where characters get to go somewhere else for a while, away from their home or comfort zone. I like to see what each one will do in a situation and surrounding they've never been in before. You know what I mean?
At first, I liked the guy she met on the plane. He seemed nice, cute, and just what Sophie needed. But after a while, you got to see his true personality and I HATED him. I do not like him one bit and I don't think any of you guys will either. Just because I know you're all nice people and don't like coniving guys :)
I did like the choices Sophie made at the end of the book, though.
Anyway, if you guys are looking for a light read with a twist of a fairytale, this one's for you! Like I said, I didn't think it was awesome, but I didn't think it was bad either. So maybe check it out from the library and see for yourself! Hope you guys enjoy! Happy Reading :)


  1. Oh that sounds a lot like a book I just read! I'll have to get this one from the library!

  2. You know what's a better traveling book? 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson. AMAZING!

  3. Cool! Will totally stop by the library for this one!


  4. I felt the same way about this one. I didn't like the guy she met on the plane. And, I like Sophie most the time, but sometimes I didn't like her very much at all.

  5. Thanks for the suggestion Liz! I'll see if I can find that at my library :)
    And Miranda, I definitely know what you mean about Sophie. Sometimes she got on my nerves with how much she was obsessed with Devon. I hope I'm not that bad with my fictional character obsessions! lol


Comments anyone?
