    1. Oh. My. God. What the hell was that book? If I could give it (-500) million stars, I would. Never have I ever forced myself to finish a book I hated, but I paid Php 780 for it so I decided to just read through it! As always, let's start with the positives. I have to admit, there was ONE positive. I liked the opener of her book, which read:"Death, like fiction, is brutal to its symmetry. Take this story and strip it down -- all the way back -- until you are left with two points. Two dots on a vas [...]

    2. After Ana commits suicide, Audery can't stop having panic attacks. Audery has a secret and the guilt is killing her, knowing that a lie she told ended in Ana's death. At Ana's funeral Audery meets her boyfriend Rad and the two leave the funeral to go somewhere and talk. Audrey can't help but be attracted to Rad and can't stop thinking about him even though she has her own boyfriend. The two eventually lose touch only end up running into one another again years down the line. Audery and Rad keep [...]

    3. I can't ever remember being as disappointed in a book as I am with this one. I've never read any of Leav's work, but I've heard fantastic things about her poetry - I saw her as a writer to look out for. When I found out that she'd written a novel (which I prefer over poetry) I thought I'd give this a try first. I had such high hopes, and even put aside other prize-winning books I had planned to read in order to read this one, which in hindsight was a massive mistake. This book was so bad, I'm co [...]

    4. “Your first love isn’t the first person you give your heart to—it’s the first one who breaks it.”Sad Girls by Lang Leav is a dark but beautifully written coming of age story that covers many issues that teens go through today, such as, anxiety, drug abuse, suicide, dark secrets, and death. Lang Leav shows us how love can be both beautiful and heartbreaking, and most importantly, she shows us how one decision can change our entire life forever, and quite possibly change the lives of tho [...]

    5. DNF at 45%I'm so done with this book. It fucked my brain up. And not in a good way.It may seem like I'm just nitpicking but I can't blame myself. Because once I've read something that I didn't particularly like, I'll just anticipate that everything will be awful too. It's like "first impression lasts", you know. And I'm really really disappointed because I've waited for this book and I expected something magical, just like her poetry.But guess what. It's a fucking abomination.The first few pages [...]

    6. A life changing lie, an unintended result. Could everybody possibly moved on?A significant and beguiling debut that didn't take away the mystery and character of Lang Leav's previous works. It shouldn't surprise me that Sad Girls top it all off, but it did! Equally compelling and fascinating with interesting characters, a crooked plot and a shell shocked ending! I couldn't put it down!***Thank you Netgalley, Andrews McMeel Publishing, and Lang Leav for providing me an ARC in exchange for a fair [...]

    7. I'm really disappointed in this one. I love Lang Leav's poetry, but this book just wasn't for me. My overarching opinion is that it was too unrealistic and the pacing was awful. I'll have a fuller review soon, but that's it for now.

    8. DNF @ 20% I'm not going to give this book a rating, simply because I didn't read that much of it, but I truly cannot bring myself to read more than I already have.In the 70 or so pages I read, there were some things that I didn't click with:- So muchtelling. Page after page of telling instead of showing things that happened, which made it difficult for me to get into the story. - Insta love . Normally, I'm willing to give it a chance, but here it was just tooinstafor me. Because everything waste [...]

    9. This was kind of a mess I had many issues with this book, it all started with the first 'huge secret/reveal/plot twist', it's so bad, I still can't imagine how someone would do that and why? (view spoiler)[ Audrey, the protagonist, starts telling us all about a lie that she had told her friends, a lie she had never expected to blow up or impact anyone's life. Actually, she imagined she would be able to tell her friends years from then that it was all a lie. Nothing real. And that lie was that a [...]

    10. First and foremost, trigger warnings should be mentioned and noted before reading this book/this review. TW: drug abuse, self-harm, suicide, anxiety.I don't know, y'all. I decided to sit on this review and think about it but in doing so, I've nearly forgotten about the whole thing because it was just so awful to me. I think I've pretty much blocked it out of my brain. I want to erase it.Okay, so I will tell you some things about it. I'll mark spoilers below.The book starts out with our protagoni [...]

    11. At this moment, this book has me speechless. I'm gonna re-read it soon, take notes and write a decent review. All I'm gonna say for now is that the writing is beautiful, it enchanted me from the beginning and I'm still under its spell.

    12. I'm not sure how I feel about this book yet. I do know that I enjoyed reading it a lot. The writing is very pretty. I could feel the words cutting through me, the sadness especially did seep in. And my battery died as soon I read the last line of the book, 'Ana's diary entry'. Quite a poetic thing to happen. Quite an end it was for me.

    13. So Lang Leav finally wrote a novel! I LOVE her poetry so I imagine I would really like this book! I just preordered a copy! Can't wait to get mine! I read the first chapter and I got to say it's very dark and unexpected! Not sure if I like it so far.A few days back, I picked up the book and dived in, I was in the middle without feeling. I have to say I'm seriously impressed with this book. It has been such a long time since I read a book while not sure how it will end, and enjoying it so much.I [...]

    14. This was an extremely disappointing read. The book is basically all over the place and seems to be full of drama just for the hell of it (Candela's entire storyline basically). Audrey is a self absorbed liar who needs to grow up. The plot was weak and the character development was very poor. I didn't feel any sort of connection with any of the characters. None of them really had any type of background or strong points and were basically all supporting characters in the 'woe is me' world of Audre [...]

    15. I give this book 3.5 stars which rounds up to 4. So this book wasn’t quite what I was expecting. It wasn’t that bad but it just wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. I had these high expectations going in and it didn’t live up to it. It had a lot of potential to be something amazing but it fell flat. In a way it reminded me aesthetically of Lana Del Rey’s music. Since I like Lana Del Rey, I did appreciate that aspect of this book.

    16. Thank you, NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book.Sad Girls drew me in because of the summary, but I found a story more profound than I ever could have imagined. Audrey's panic attacks begin after she spread a rumor that led to the death of a classmate. Her life spins rapidly out of control. She has to deal with the consequences of her actions while figuring out how to handle her anxiety. On top of that, she is trying to figure out who she is. I will never be able to express how muc [...]

    17. Always been a huge fan of Lang Leav but this book is a huge disappointment. I don't consider this a novel. The storyline is a bit "patchy" and jumpy. It is more of a story driven a than character driven kind of novel. The nameless character in her short stories are more memorable than this.I manage to finish it and I am a sad girl. Sigh~Just because this book disappoints me, that doesn't mean I will stop supporting her craft though. I still have high hopes for her. But this book is a no-no for m [...]

    18. The premise of Leav’s first novel is undoubtably both interesting and gripping. However, she has a tendency throughout the book to miss retailing important details regarding Audrey’s timeline (I.e what happened to Audrey’s Novel/Angie’s proposal). In the sense that, certain events/actions occur in one chapter, then their not expanded upon in the next, or at all. To give credit where credit is due, the sheer brilliance of her storytelling/metaphors in Sad Girls blew me away granting this [...]

    19. First appeared on booksandstrips.wordpress/ If you didn’t know, Lang Leav is a rather famous poet, her poetry collection is a bit of a favourite among the bookish community and she is constantly on bestseller lists. Now, you can imagine how much I wanted to read this, a poet writing YA, maybe it will finally have that beautiful quality (despite being a contemporary) that I have always missed in the genre, but, alas, this failed me. I guess the problem is that I expected so much of this book, o [...]

    20. ***thank you to netgalley for providing me with an eARC for reviewi have been a fan of lang leav’s work for YEARS, so when i heard that she was releasing her first full length novel, it immediately became one of my most anticipated releases of 2017. needless to say, i had been impatiently awaiting its release in may, but to my surprise & extreme delight, i randomly stumbled across an eARC of it on netgalley & i instantly downloaded it (thank you so much netgalley!!)now, onto the actual [...]

    21. By far the best book I have read this year! I am so excited for this book to be published so I can buy my own copy and read it whenever I want. I was given an ARC for review and I am more than impressed with this book! This book covers topics such as mental health, death, abuse, drugs and bullying. The fact that this book talks about so many different and important topics in under 400 pages astounds me. I was hooked from page 7, not once did I want to put this book down - it is that captivating. [...]

    22. I was debating to give this book 1 or 2 stars, but since I used to like her poetry books, well 2 stars! To be quite honest, I almost DNF this book!

    23. I used to hear a lot about Lang Leav whenever I logged onto Tumblr. There would always be a quote from one of her poems, or someone gushing about how amazing her writing was. I prefer novels over poetry, so when I heard that she had written a book, I was pretty excited to check it out and see if her writing really did live up to the hype.School is almost out for Audrey, but the panic attacks are just beginning. Because Audrey told a lie and now her classmate, Ana, is dead. Just as her world begi [...]

    24. WOAH! This book is so so so good! A bit dark but it hits me just on the right spot. Love it!

    25. 2 out of 5 starsYouth is wasted on the young. I can’t say I had high expectations for this book. Over the stretch of time that has lapsed between her last and latest publication, my senior writing peers have taken up the responsibility of removing Lang Leav from the immeasurably high pedestal in my heart. I fell in love with her first book, you see. Love and Misadventures became my holy grail in poetry when I read it when it was first published. Her points when it came to love and loss was so [...]
