Kill The Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky - Book Review

Monday, July 24, 2017

Just know from the start that it wasn’t supposed to go like this. All we wanted was to get near them. That’s why we got a room in the hotel where they were staying.

We were not planning to kidnap one of them. Especially not the most useless one. But we had him—his room key, his cell phone, and his secrets.

We were not planning on what happened next.

We swear. (Goodreads)

For the past several months I have been in a rather deep and annoying reading slump and I feel that most of the books I have reviewed this year thus far have made that pretty evident (plus I think I am currently burned out when it comes to fantasy YA). I got Kill The Boy Band as a reward for myself and had no intention of reviewing it. The title and simplistic cover immediately grabbed my attention and the summary instantly drew me in. Because of my reading slump, I figured it would take me at least a week to get through it, but surprisingly (and for the first time in a very long time), I practically devoured this book in one sitting. Kill The Boy Band gives a pretty accurate description of modern fangirls and the insanity that goes along with being obsessed with a boy band these days. The way Goldy Moldavsky described the community and the bonds (that are also easily broken) was spot on. That means that the majority of the story is actually pretty believable. Even though it was pretty dark it still managed to also be very funny and had me actually laughing and chuckling out loud multiple times.

Rating: 4/5
Buy: Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Abebooks
