Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen (Book Review)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5 Stars)

A bizarre story filled with drama that manages to find a resolution for all its crazy sins.

I really enjoyed this book. Yes, it’s overdramatic – there’s a lot of miscommunication between characters, but isn’t that what being a teenager is all about? Daria is so misunderstood and she lashes out in the most awful ways, but haven’t we all felt invisible and like nobody ”got us” when we were younger? This book feeds on teenager angst, creating a plot so complicated you wonder what the end game is going to be.

Daria is a difficult character, your classic mean-girl, and not many will be able to empathize with her. However, I really liked Penn, his cool demeanor is mostly a mask and it’s easy to connect with him. The end is satisfactory and I wish I could stick around with these characters for longer…well except for Via who is still pretty much unredeemable in my eyes.

Ps: after reading all of the ASH and SoS books and rereading Pretty Reckless I decided to update this from a 4 to a 5 🙂

So my list is as follows:
#1 Pretty Reckless ★★★★★
#2 Broken Knight ★★★
#3 Angry God TBR
#4 The Hunter & The PreyTBR

Defy (#0.5 sinners of saint) ★★★★
Vicious(#1 sinners of saint) ★★★★★
Ruckus(#2 sinners of saint) ★★★
Scandalous(#3 sinners of saint) ★★★★
Bane(#4 sinners of saint) ★★★
