Don’t Need More Books, But… Book Haul!

20140903_232420

…Let’s just say there’s a reason why this blog is called “I Think I’m Obsessed”.

I love bargain buys on books and lately I was able to get all of these books for five dollars! What a steal! Honestly, there’s not a whole lot of room left in my room for more books, but personal space is overrated. In fact, space is overrated. As long as I have a little air hole to breathe somewhere, my room can be 99% books. As I always tell my parents, “hey, it’s better than drugs.”

Review: Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg

cover36034-mediumWHEN HARRY MET SALLY . . . for teens, from romantic comedy star Elizabeth Eulberg.

For Macallan and Levi, it was friends at first sight. Everyone says guys and girls can’t be just friends, but these two are. They hang out after school, share tons of inside jokes, their families are super close, and Levi even starts dating one of Macallan’s friends. They are platonic and happy that way.

Eventually they realize they’re best friends — which wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t keep getting in each other’s way. Guys won’t ask Macallan out because they think she’s with Levi, and Levi spends too much time joking around with Macallan, and maybe not enough time with his date. They can’t help but wonder . . . are they more than friends or are they better off without making it even more complicated?

From romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg comes a fresh, fun examination of a question for the ages: Can guys and girls ever really be just friends? Or are they always one fight away from not speaking again — and one kiss away from true love?

The publisher gave me a copy of this book to read and review (from NetGalley). This has, in no way, altered my opinion of the book and what is written below is a 100% honest review.

I’ve read one of Eulberg’s other books (Prom and Prejudice) and I remember absolutely loving it. This novel was a bit hard for me to get into at first, but I really liked it by the end!

I feel like the best romantic relationships are the ones that begin with friendship. Macallan and Levi meet each other in middle school and they’re immediate friends. Bonded by a comedic TV show, they develop a strong relationship that is tested over the Continue reading
