Review: Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas


Title: Ask Again Later
Author: Liz Czukas
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release date: March 11th 2014

Rating: 3.5/5

Buy onAmazon | B&N | BookDepository
Despite what her name might suggest, Heart has zero interest in complicated romance. So when her brilliant plan to go to prom with a group of friends is disrupted by two surprise invites, Heart knows there's only one drama-free solution: flip a coin.

Heads: The jock. He might spend all night staring at his ex or throw up in the limo, but how bad can her brother's best friend really be?

Tails: The theater geek...with a secret. What could be better than a guy who shares all Heart's interests--even if he wants to share all his feelings?

Heart's simple coin flip has somehow given her the chance to live out both dates. But where her prom night ends up might be the most surprising thing of all...

Heart is a young girl in high school, she has a policy of not going out romantically with anyone, because she wants to avoid her mother's mistakes at all costs, so for the Prom, she decides to go with her group of friends and avoid dramas, but at the last minute her brother volunteered her to be the date of his best friend Troy, who has recently been dump by his girlfriend. Troy is an athlete, who has always been good to Heart, but she does not feel any kind attraction to him, which makes him a possible good date. But on the other hand Heart receives a proposal the same day to go to the dance with Ryan, a friend, she likes him but she does not feel any kind attraction towards him and after he tells her a secret, he´s also a possible good date for the dance.

And what does Heart do to decide between them? Throw a coin in the air and if its heads she will go with Troy and if its tails she will go with Ryan. Heart throws the coin and we never see how the coin falls, so in the subsequent chapters the story alternates in parallel between what would happen if it was Ryan or Troy. Personally, I like the stories of alternating or parallel realities very much in the style of Pivot Point by Kasie West, Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick or the movie Sliding Doors, where we see the classic "what if".

Ask Again Later is a contemporary novel with a funny, adorable story (one reality more than another) with a light romance, some drama, but nothing heavy. The plot has some aspects that irritated me, but nothing that I could not overcome. The book has a good ending, is what I expected and I recommend it when they want to read a light YA book.

Review: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne


Title: The Hating Game
Author: Sally Thorne
Publisher: William Morrow
Release date: August 9th 2016
Reading level: Ages 18 and up

Rating: 4.5/5

Buy onAmazon | B&N | BookDepository
Nemesis (n.)
1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome;
2) A person’s undoing;
3) Joshua Templeman.

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.

The Hating Game is a contemporary romance novel that focuses on a fun love-hate relationship between two co-workers.

Lucy Hutton is the executive assistant of one of the CEO of a publishing house, she´s good at her work, she´s always smiling, is the type that wants to please others and be good with everyone. She has a good working relationship everyone with the exception of her mortal enemy Joshua Templeman whom is the executive assistant of the other CEO of the publishing house, he´s also good at his job, but he´s cold, hard, rarely laughs (if ever) and only cares about doing his work well, regardless of whether he´s well liked or not. The publishing house where both currently work was merged a few months before and both come from different part of the publishers (they share office space and their desks are facing each other).

From the moment they met Lucy and Joshua hate each other (or at least that's what Lucy says) and start their game of hating each other. Lucy's life is lonely, every workday she goes to work, hate Joshua and then goes home, sleeps and the next day is a repeat of the day before until the day that at an office meeting it´s announced that a new position will be opened, for which Lucy is perfect as so is Joshua, so they start a new competition/game between them where the attacks between them change and they start to get to know each other a bit more and the dynamics they have had since they met starts to change and Lucy realizes that Joshua can smile occasionally and she realizes that whether or not Joshua wins, her life will not be the same once the winner is announced.

Overall, The Hating Game is a very funny chick-lit novel that had me laughing out loud more than once, I read it in two days (which is fast for me), it has a good romance, likeable characters (I did like Joshua), lots of sexual tension and great banter between them. This is the kind of  story that you end up with a big smile once you finish reading it. I really loved this book! and I recommend it to everyone that likes romance novels.
