The Ivy (ARC)

The Ivy

Author: Lauren Kunze & Rina Onur

Publisher: Greenwillow Books

Pages: 320

Read Time: Did not finish, stopped at page 110

Tag Words: college, Harvard, foreign students, sex, alcohol, parties, gossip, hook-ups, freshman year

My Summary:

It’s Callie’s first year at Harvard University and she needs to get in with the good crowd, or get over it.

My Review:

Yep, this is one of those books I didn’t finish, and yes, I could lecture about the lack of morality, but I think my original review on Goodreads says it all in a short, sweet and serious way:

The Ivy (Ivy, #1)The Ivy by Lauren Kunze
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Got to page 110 and stopped.

I don't want to read about a bunch of selfish, self-centered Harvard kids who use their bodies as carelessly as prostitutes and alcoholics and think, "Hey, this is the life!"

Notes on the Names:

Marine Aurelie Clement, called Mimi. I could have died and gone to heaven reading that name! Utterly gorgeous.

Thoughts on the Cover:

I get it now, but I won’t lie, when I first saw it I thought, “Paranormal.”

Parental Book Review *spoilers*

I can’t very well do a real Parental Book Review here, but the reason I stopped reading this book was because of the loose sexual standards, the christian-trashy and the flippant consumption of alcohol. That should tell you something.

I actually heard tons of great stuff about this book... :/ I have it on my shelf, but I haven't read it yet. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it... Now I'm hesitant to read it! Haha:)
