    1. Incredible piece of YA literature Finally, an author who GETS it You can say we were all young once but if I had a penny for every time I came across a young adult novel that had unrelatable characters, no flaws, unconvincing dialogue Holly isn t like that This book will pull you in and refuse to let go Probably the best YA novel I ve ever read, and that s a strong statement to make.


    2. I am not sure how to feel about the book The Manifesto on How to be Interesting is basically about a high school outcast who experiments on how to be interesting as part of her research in becoming a writer It s kind of formulaic, clich ish, quite bitter and anti humanistic but with a lot of truth to it As usual, the writing is very bold, revolutionary and feministic At times though, I feel like it went a bit too far The things Bree personally decided to do as parts of her experiment are a bit t [...]


    3. I need to write this review because this book got on my nerves so much It s great if you love this book I m happy that you enjoyed it Before I started reading, I read a lot of reviews that declared The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting as the best of the year or the new favorite YA novel I had high hopes, obviously Instead of a great story with good characters and a solid plot, I found myself reading some kind of soap box speech about teenage culture and its downfalls The writing s not bad, but [...]


    4. Out of 70 books, this was the best book I have read this year.I could give you a 2000 words essay about how much I loved this book, but I don t think anything I d write would nearly describe just how AWESOME it was So I guess you ll have to find out for yourself if you want to know.


    5. LOVED this Such a great take on high school drama , identity self harm So proud of my friend Holly for writing this so glad I enjoyed it otherwise things would be awkward between us


    6. 3.75 Firstly I have to say I really enjoy the way Holly Bourne writes Her books are such comfortable reads They flow brilliantly and read so quickly I pretty much zoomed through and finished this in one sitting Holly somehow manages to tackle difficult topics in a way that makes them easy to read.With that being said, I didn t love this book I enjoyed it but there s something making it hard for me to work out how I feel about it I m conflicted The whole book gave me a huge Mean Girls movie vibe, [...]


    7. I still don t know how I feel about this book It was exactly like Mean Girls , in the way that a girl who thinks she s a loser, and social outcast, works her way up to the top of the popularity ladder with the application of lipstick and expensive hosiery Unfortunately, I couldn t see the reality The novel only really understood girls on a surface level, and took a long time before an epiphany was reached that even mean girls are human I really liked the blogging element, and the idea about gett [...]


    8. Six steps that will see her infiltrate the popular setWhy do people always think that being in the popular set can make them interesting


    9. First of all a quick note to say I haven t edited this review It s a mess I m tired Oh well I hope it s coherent This book was okay.It had a message It was well written ish It kept me coming back and turning the page, desperate to read explicit details of Bree s messy experiment But it was also problematic.Bree was generally a very strange character She had depth, yes immensely so, as we figure out but she seems like an ego maniac, to be blunt Maybe the author was trying to portray the teenage [...]


    10. I gave up reading this, this book made me cringe way to much and teacher student relationship made me gag alot so Im done with this book sorry


    11. I hated this book That sounds so harsh, because I thought I would never hate a book I have always valued the authors craft, even if a book just wasn t for me But this book was So so so problematic Let s start with Bree She tries to self proclaim herself as a feminist voice but shames girls for liking boys I have self respect Yeah, Bree, self respect is self defined Not up to your judgemental standards There was an intense amount of girl hate in this book Why do authors keep writing books about b [...]



    12. Choose life Choose love And always remember to live.I think it s time to admit that I m too old for YA contemporary Shit, I never thought that would happen To be honest I never thought I would become a fully certified adult It s not something that I wanted for myself But here I am, paying car tax, doing crafts and getting excited about home decor and help There s nothing wrong with anyone, of any age reading YA contemporary I d certainly be a hypocrite if I said that there was , but I feel perso [...]


    13. I just finished this book and felt compelled to write a review I seriously have no idea why it s so highly praised It s predictable and unrealistic and so unbelievably similar to the plot of Mean Girls I could hardly believe when I saw that the author had actually quoted Mean Girls in the book If you ve seen the film, this book will feel very familiar however, it fails to be as funny iconic Also, if you re a PLL fan you ll probably end up guessing one big twist in the story I m not sure why I fi [...]


    14. First impression Unique story approach and a protagonist worth getting to know better Holly Bourne introduces us to Bree, a quiet girl who is very intelligent and withdrawn Soon she s going to change radically In the beginning she has a fantastic relationship with her best friend Holdo They watch movies together and hang out They have a very trusting and intimate friendship that makes both their lives so much brighter It is a friendship that I recognized as something very important for Bree s st [...]


    15. So what did I think From my high ranking you can guess that I enjoyed this book a lot And I did But it still isn t a book I would recommend everybody First of all there is a big trigger warning for selfharm And then again I guess you have to like this kind of story and they way it is told I thought it was brilliant and didn t feel that connected to a book, not just to the characters but to the whole book in a while I love it I really think people overuse the word love and I try not to But that j [...]

    17. I actually did not finish this book I meam, I tried so hard to psuh through so that I could give a review concerning its entireity, but after just 100 pages, I just cannot stand it any.You see, I have seen this book everywhere and a lot of people I know completely fell in love with it And so when I started readong it, I was so surprised at how annoying the main protagonist is.This is the type of book which claims to portray feminism but ruins the essence of it in actuality The narrator claims to [...]


    18. Review originally posted on A Frolic Through Fiction book blog afrolicthroughfiction.wordpreI m just going to go ahead and say it I should have read this book first Out of all of Holly Bourne s books that I ve read so far, I should ve started with this one Purely because when I read Am I Normal Yet and How Hard Can Love Be I absolutely adored them, so my expectations for this one were high, to say the least Everything that was said in those books I agreed with and I feel like the exact opposite [...]


    19. So incredibly honest and raw I cried my heart out, I related to this so much Honestly one of the most relatable and sad books I have ever read


    20. Found it very, very hard to root for this main character Her actions and the reasoning behind them constantly baffled me Still, Holly Bourne s way of writing feels effortless and it s an enjoyable read.


    21. I read this a year ago and my review was long but crappy.I decided that I won t rewrite it because right now I don t have much time but I wanted to state that even though this book was entertaining and I really enjoy reading about boarding or prep schools and the writing was good enough though not special the book was just too clich ,it was not special or original,it seemed partly pointless,the characters were mostly there to exist and had no personality,the MC made me shake my head myriads of t [...]


    22. Yazar n vermeye al t mesaj kitab n tamam ndan defalarca kez daha ok sevdim Being interesting isn t important But being happy is As well as being a person you re proud of.

    24. My first read of 2015 could not have been a better choice After purchasing this back on August, even just the cover has had me so exited to indulge in this read I didn t realise that the author, Holly Bourne had also written my all time favourite book Soulmates that I read a little over a year ago now and as soon as the connection clicked, I knew I had l read it as soon as possible Holly Bourne is such an incredible author and I love that her characters all suffer from serious problems that affe [...]


    25. Did not finish at page 112Maybe I was yet to find the message in this book, maybe it was too critical on teenage life, maybe the main character wasn t at all relateable, maybe I m not the right age so this hits too close to home Or maybe this book simply wasn t for me.Whatever the case, I won t be continuing this book, though I hope to read Soulmates in the future.



    26. I need to be interesting, Logan, I need to be someone 1 5 My secondary school years a couple of years behind me now, but looking back I feel like I had a fairly typical experience a small group of close friends, studied hard, mostly enjoyed myself The worst age was probably fourteen to about sixteen where I was gangly and socially awkward A couple of boys were mean to me, but I wouldn t say I was bullied In Sixth Form, aged sixteen to eighteen, I had an amazing time Not so for Bree.Bree sighed, [...]


    27. The Manifesto on How to be Interesting is an very inconsistent, but ultimately very entertaining book I could argue that I m probably not in the target group for this novel, but after reading so many contemporary YA books with a boy at its center Looking for Alaska, Kind of a Funny Story, Spectacular Now, The Beginning of Everything , I almost got the feeling that books needed to be set in the dystopian future to focus on a girl Hunger Games, Divergent, 5th Wave with TFIOS as an exception So I [...]


    28. I rang in 2017 with a Holly Bourne, so I was hoping to wait until the New Year to read this But Thursday saw me feeling a little down not in any serious way, but just in the sense that I wanted a book that wouldn t be too sad Bourne s writing, despite involving sensitive issues in this case, bullying, sexual harassment assault, and self harm and attempted suicide trigger warning I will discuss these later always puts me in a better mood She has this way of buoying you, of making you feel hopeful [...]
