Alyssa’s Reviews – Week Of Review: The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart

Hi everybody!

Welcome to the final book review in my Week Of Review’s Series!

Today, I’m going to be reviewing my second E. Lockhart book, The Boyfriend List!

Synopsis (Via Goodreads):

Ruby Oliver is 15 and has a shrink. She knows it’s unusual, but give her a break—she’s had a rough 10 days. In the past 10 days she:
lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list),
lost her best friend (Kim),
lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket),
did something suspicious with a boy (#10),
did something advanced with a boy (#15),
had an argument with a boy (#14),
drank her first beer (someone handed it to her),
got caught by her mom (ag!),
had a panic attack (scary),
lost a lacrosse game (she’s the goalie),
failed a math test (she’ll make it up),
hurt Meghan’s feelings (even though they aren’t really friends),
became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch)
and had graffiti written about her in the girls’ bathroom (who knows what was in the boys’!?!).
But don’t worry—Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more lists.


I actually bought these books (the first two) on a wim! I picked them up at my local library for 25 Cents a piece! I had read E. Lockharts “We Were Liars”, and I quite enjoyed them, so I figures why not?!

This book was SO AMAZING! I feel like I’m saying that in all of these book reviews, but I PROMISE I’m not lying! All of the books I’m reading are just so spectacular!

This book had me gripped to the end! It was a very quick read, a little bit more then 200 pages! And, I wanted to fit in a book before the month was over, so this was just perfect!

The concept of this book was so cute! I loved how real it felt, as she was going to therapy for panic attacks, and the reason may have been boys! It was just SO cute!

I also loved the main character, Ruby Oliver. She was so funny and cute! I really liked her from the beginning and thought that she was the sweetest, most innocent girl ever!


I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK! I gave it 5/5 stars, for sure!

I hope that you guys enjoyed this book! Be sure to come back tomorrow for a (not-so) Surprise Giveaway!

Good Night Book Lions!
