The DUFF - Kody Keplinger

*taken from goodreads* - "Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.

Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone."


I remember really wanting to read this book, I thought it would be just the perfect book to get me into more contemporary/realistic fiction/teen romance kinda novels! I thought this was written pretty perfectly, it was fast-paced and it was also funny in places. It was a light read and Bianca wasn't annoying like many of the other female protagonists that seem to be surfacing lately. In my opinion, you can't really go wrong with these types of books, they're just quick & "fluffy" (for lack of a better word) to read!

The only thing I'd say was that there could have been more of a plot, more drama or something big could have happened just to give it that edge, if you're into more of the fantasy/paranormal kind of books like I am, you'd think this was a little bland and lacked depth. So for that reason, I give this book a:
