I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?

Get Ready for War

Get Ready for War (Hollywood High) - 'Ni-Ni Simone',  'Amir Abrams'

After reading Hollywood High, that brought the funny non stop, I just knew Get Ready for War would be just as hilarious. However, I was disappointed. GRfW did have some funny spots, not much drama and dragged a bit for my taste. I flew through the first book and I creeped through this one. I knew at every turn what the secrets were and thought I'd actually get the drama but to my dismay, up to the very last page, I learned that it will be reserved for the next installment. I missed Heather in GRfW. She didn't have a strong presence in this one but from the ending I see that she will be in the lead in the next.

***I will say that Get Ready for War reveals many scandalous and juicy secrets of the girls and their mothers through out the book. And a bam-bop-pop at the end. lol

I was given this ebook to read and review from the publisher and Netgalley.
