The Exact Opposite of Okay Reviews
You know you’re going to be in for a treat when a book features a dachshund called Dumbledore and after reading and heavily relating to the line “maybe I’m just being melodramatic. I just really hate getting out of bed” on the third page, I very quickly realised The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven was not going to disappoint. *spoiler alert: it definitely didn’t disappoint.* The Exact Opposite of Okay was the Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging/Easy A mash up I didn’t know I’d been longing ...more
Hmm... I have really mixed feelings on this book. Review to come closer to release date.
I generally really enjoyed this, and it addressed some important issues too, but the one thing is that I wish there was more towards the end, with more of the feminism stuff
I really liked the layout, how it was written as blog entries mostly, it was really fun to read, especially with the narrator adding extra notes in every now and then
Izzy was such a great character tbh, but I wish there was more of her standing up to the world about the feminist things, like slut shaming, and 'nice guys' , ra ...more
"As a woman, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. A slut if you send the nudes and a prude if you don't. A whore if you have sex and frigid if you don't. A bitch if you fight back and submissive if you don't."
There's so much I want to talk about, but let me start by saying that this book is so damn important to girls. It's crucial that they know how to value themselves. This shows again how fucked up our society really is. I hope this changes for our next generation. This should chan ...more
THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF OKAY by Laura Steven is the 2018 book you NEED on your shelves. It’s such an important story, and it should be required reading for everyone.
Eighteen-year-old Izzy O’Neill is a hardcore feminist, and funny AF. I loved her voice, her witty remarks, her sarcasm, and her geeky references. In short, I want Izzy O’Neill to be my new best friend.
Steven did a wonderful job of writing a complex, flawed and layered main character, with an equally good cast of secondary characters. ...more
Not for me
I hate books with dead parents especially when they go on and on about it. Constant references to tragic orphan status got old quickly.
I didn't get the humour at all and found main character to be a bit callous at times.
Moving on to something else and DNFing this.
“Basically, if you're a woman, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.”
okay wow, seriously?? this book. everyone needs to read this book at least one point in there life because it is amazing!! i've lay in bed the past 20 minutes trying to figure out the best way to write this review because this book blew me away, this book is going to change the world and that isn't even an over exaggeration. this book is so real, in this book girls who have sex are insantally labelled as a slut and ...more
Izzy is a typical high schooler and budding comedian. She goes to parties, drinks beer and makes out with boys – just like every other 18 year old. What’s different in Izzy’s case is that one night, she goes to a party, drinks beer, has sex… and ends up being at the centre of a sex scandal with a politicians’ son and the victim of a horrible slut shaming website.
I was excited for this book the minute I read the synopsis on Goodreads and I am over the moon that I managed to get a copy from Netga ...more
