Hobbitsies Reviews: Quick, fun book with a psycho stalker main character

Alright. Let me just say this straight up - So Much Closer has a very, very creepy premise. Like, crazy psycho main character premise. But it's supposed to be in a light-hearted way, I guess.

And Brooke certainly follows through with the crazy. I mean, this girl is a STALKER. What high school girl moves to a whole new city to follow a guy she's spoken to ONCE in two years? A STALKER, that's what kind of girl. And the weirdest thing was - nobody batted an eye. No one commented on how creepy or psycho she was!

And even though I was so creeped out and annoyed with Brooke for being a stalker, I could not put So Much Closer down! I just flew through it over the course of one day.

Brooke - she annoyed me, clearly. I mean, she definitely had some issues from her messed up home-life. And she was angry and bitter and freaking nutso. But she kind of grew on me? And I really, really liked the characters of John and Sadie, and their stories. I never understood the appeal of Scott or Brooke's friends from New Jersey.

There was a lot of message pushing at the end - do your homework, go to college, make good decisions, etc. which grated on my nerves a bit, but I definitely glad Brooke was finally starting to figure everything out.

Overall, I did enjoy So Much Closer. It was a fun and quick read. But I will tell you - if I ever met Brooke, I might have slapped some sense into her. If you're looking for a light contemporary with WTFs and giggles aplenty, be sure to check out So Much Closer.

    Dont waste your money....

    This is an okay book, but its very slow and doesnt keep the reader interested. i would not after reading this book advise anyone to read it, it just wasnt very good. All there was, was fluff there was nothing about this story that made you want to keep reading. i actually read half of it and then stopped, after a while i just got board. i did finish it and it was disappointing, but i guess you cant always expect the best. I hope this review saves you your time and some money. Trust me there are way better books than this out there just keep looking. Try the author Ally Carter, Shes an amazing author and has two GREAT book series. Each keeping you reading to the very end. Trust me when i say theres hope for books, you just need to keep looking.

    I am a fan of Susane's work

    But this book makes me feel awkward and i cant relate to it at all, like i can in her other books. The main character is by far the creepest person ever, if you think like her get checked out or something for being a psycopath. Really am not impressed at all. Her other work is way better

    awful

    The plot line is unrealistic and the story is hard to read because of the choppy sentence structure. I feel like this book is geared more towards a younger crowd and I'm actually really upset I wasted eleven dollars on this. Ugh

    Urggg

    I didn't really like this book. First of all the main character moved just because of a crush. Stalker much?! And then all the rest of the story plots were kinda predictable and cliche-ish. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BOOK.
