This May Sound Crazy
Author: Abigail Breslin
Genre: Real People
It’s pretty much the case with me whenever I read or see something scary I have to immediately find something that’s light and fluffy in order to get over the trauma. I like Abigail Breslin. I’m enjoying her on Scream Queens and I like a good celebrity book as much as the next person so I figured… What the hay?
I’m not actually going to rate this book because I don’t think that would be fair. Because honestly this book was not meant for me. I’m not usually the type of person who says that. I think you should try to read any book you want to and make your own decisions.
Yep, this book was just too young. (And I don’t consider myself that old my a long stretch.)
This May Sound Crazy is pretty much like a stream of consciousness blog style ramble complete with hashtags and emoji’s. There was also a little bit of a personal thing that set me off early. Cuz. Cuz. Everything is cuz. I know people say it. I know people probably say it a lot and I swear if it was just once or twice I may have been able to overlook it in the writing but it was constantly cuz. The constant cuz along with the hashtags and the use of the emoji was just too much. Fine for a blog post, I suppose, for a whole book gets on your nerves.
On top of that the book is mostly break-up and relationship advice. I’ve heard it all before. Honestly, probably everyone’s heard it all before. Not to mention a lot of it was like I was dating this boy, but then we broke up and my best friend hooked up with him, and how do I tell me other best friend that her boyfriend is cheating on her.
I didn’t like this kind of stuff when I was that age.
It wasn’t all a waste. She has a couple of poems throughout that are pretty good and I enjoyed Breslin’s way of getting pep talks from celebrities but this book was so not for me. To be fair and honest I don’t think it was supposed to be.
Recommend: No. Unless you are a huge fan of the actresses or are maybe considering purchasing it for a young person having romantic troubles for the first time.
