    1. I thought I was prepared.I'd seen many friends pick this up and then lay it down after 15 pages or so, saying this just really wasn't for them. But I've been the odd one out before, so maybe this could end up working for me! So I finally started my own copy of Anatomy of a Misfit and well. Let's say my friends weren't wrong. The really sad thing about Anatomy of a Misfit is that it's really trying to prove a (good) point. But there are so many things that contradict that message that it just doe [...]


    2. Lately, I’ve been coming across this particular type of character development and I find myself liking it- character is really unlikeable, so unlikeable I imagined giving her a little knuckle blow in the head. She’s mean and offensive, my eyes hurt from excessive rolling at her judgmental thoughts and words. She’s friends with the most popular girl in school even though she hates her like poison and she’s best friends with the second most popular girl even though she slut shames her fift [...]


    3. ANATOMY OF A MISFIT is what happens when your favorite Sara Zarr book and the movie HEATHERS get drunk and make a baby. By turns snort-into-your-palm funny and arrow-to-the heart observant, this book is ultimately a bust-your-soul-to-smithereens look at what it means to care too much about the opinions of all the wrong people. Adult novelist Andrea Portes gives a masterclass in what "voice" is, and does so here with her camera's POV firmly set at the Young Adult audience. This is YA at its best: [...]


    4. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/Who here is tired of people using Mean Girls fs in their book reviews?Well, tough shit ‘cause I’m gonna use a bunch of them.Anika Dragomir is the third most popular girl in high school. Think of her as Gretchen Wieners . . . .True Mean Girls fans are probably screaming that Karen Smith was probably the third most popular girl in school or something of the sort. Have no fear, Anika’s best friend Shelli is the Karen Smith of this story. She’s not st [...]



    5. Filipino readers! I'm giving away a copy of this on the blog! Come check it out!First of all, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY. As your friendly neighborhood book blogger, I would like to suggest the best way to maximize the next 24 hours as much as possible: buy cake or a box of chocolates, a glass of wine, maybe even some delicious foie gras, and curl up with a book to read for the rest of the day.And please, for the love of god and all things holy, let it be this book.My friends, I am not a fan of the [...]


    6. 4.5 stars. This is not a book for everybody. This is a not a book you will enjoy if slurs and slut-shaming ruin a book for you. To love this book, you need to be the type who can read a book about people as they are and not as you want them to be. It struck me hard so many times while I was reading how many bloggers I knew would despise this book from early on, and I knew I'd find a bunch of reviews hating on it, and obviously, to each his or her own.But I loved this book. I loved the snarky, ir [...]


    7. 'I don't know how to act around anybody.'I feel like this is one of those books that leaves you a little speechless after finishing. There were many things that I didn't necessarily like about this book and I found the characters a very strange set of creations. I saw little correlation between the different events that took place and I just couldn't help thinking what the point of this book was (which isn't necessarily a bad thing; some crazy, chaotic books are fun to read). To this day, I'm no [...]


    8. I just couldn't read it anymore. What a waste. My excitement and enthusiasm is just useless. And I got disappointed BIG TIME. The blurb said that it was Mean Girls meets The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and in the first few chapters it's more on the Mean Girls part which is kind of annoying to read. The main protagonist did nothing but complain and swear unnecessarily. Seriously, there's a lot F bomb dropped here and it's just useless. What are they for?! It just turned me off and made me more an [...]


    9. "Ah, tatlım, o dönem o insanların çoğu aptaldı. Koyun gibi, sürünün peşine takılmışlardı. Bunu sakın unutma. Tek bir yöne doğru giden bir kalabalık gördüğünde kendine bir iyilik yap ve diğer tarafa git."İtirafımla başlayayım. Kitap ilgimi çekmişti ancak internette imzalı olarak satıldığını görmeseydim yakın zamanda başlayacağımı sanmıyorum. Kitabın arka kapağına baktığınızda pek de özgün bir konu görmüyorsunuz ancak anlatım şekli ilgi çekic [...]


    10. 4.5 starsOk, I really didn't think I was going to give this book such a high rating, but it completely redeemed itself. I'm still put off by the slut-shaming & using the term "gay" as an insult, but everything else was done really well. This book was described by someone as mean girls meets the perks of being a wallflower, and I literally could not come up with a better description. This was pretty fantastic & it definitely surprised me. Also, Anika's character development throughout thi [...]


    11. *First I would like to thank Andye from readingteen/ for letting me review her books!*I finished this book a couple days ago and I have yet to figure out what the plot of this book was. So I'm gonna go ahead and say that it is safe to assume there was none. Nada. Zip.You have your main character Anika (which is pronounced Ann-ika, just like it's spelled. I thought for the longest time it was pronounced Uh-kneekan't judge), who is the third most popular girl at Pound High. The first most popular [...]



    12. It took me forever to decide if I liked this book or loathed it. Honestly. I'm settling for middle-ground and you get a list of what I loved and what I hated. Because I'm awfully helpful like that. WHAT I LIKED:1) Our narrator, Anika, is a real character.Seriously, she's pretty much one-of-a-kind. On one hand, she's Miss Snark and Queen B, and on the other hand she's a hopelessly needy teen with a soft squishy side and a deep longing to do right by people. The way she goes about doing right is d [...]


    13. What on earth did I just read?I picked this one up solely because it was the "Big Library Read" on the digital library catalog, so why not grab something a little extra, especially if its recommended enough to be something offered to anyone who wants it. I've since found that it's one of the hotter reads of the year, got a starred review from Publisher's Weekly, and is pretty well-regarded.And I have no idea why.This story follows two teens in Nebraska. There's a hot boy, a mean girl clique, and [...]


    14. I'm a terrible book reviewer especially when I really loved the book.You know that feeling when you love a story so much you've got nothing to say but "That was so good", "Brilliant" or "Holy Shit!!!!".This is one of those moments I'm not a very technical book reviewer, I'm more an emotional one. I oftentimes rate a book based on what it made me feel or how I did relate to the characters but I also sometimes rate it based on how it was written or narrated. I can distinguised a good prose from a [...]


    15. What a read! Anatomy of a Misfit is filled with sarcasm, humor, and a whole lot of spunk. This is one of those books where you hear the voice of the story perfectly in your head. Sarcasm included. You’re taken on an emotional roller coaster as you work your way through the pages. One minute you’re laughing, the next you’re in compete and utter shock! I never really knew what was coming, but the short chapters that seemed like a “fast forward” was a hint that told me something was comin [...]


    16. 2.5 StarsThis wasn't a bad book but it wasn't also a good enough book. The writing wasn't good enough, the chatacters weren't well rounded enough and the plot wasn't well crafted enough. Mean Girls meets The Perks of being a Wallflower? Now if that doesn't intrigue you, I don't know what would.


    17. I must admit that I was a little skeptical when first approaching this book. When I initially read the blurb, I thought it would just be another clichéd love story/triangle. Instead, I found a brutally honest depiction of bigotry, abuse and bullying that will stay with me for days.Anatomy of a Misfit is a contemporary YA novel that follows ninth grader Anika Dragomir (Dragomir? Vampire Academy anyone?) as she struggles to maintain her ‘third most popular’ social standing in a Mean Girls-esq [...]



    18. Expectation of Mean Girls meets Perks of Being a Wallflower: October 3, 2004 Dear friend, I am writing to you because you listen and you understand and you didn’t laugh when I forgot to wear pink last Wednesday. I just need to know that someone else feels like this. I keep all of these secrets and I think it’s tearing me apart. Regina’s especially.Sometimes I feel like she doesn’t even notice me. God, I just want her to notice me. Last week she told me ‘fetch’ wasn’t going to happe [...]


    19. Ok I'm not sure why this book is so popular. I was so excited to read it since I've been hooked on contemporary romance for the past few months and when I came across this book, I flipped head over heels. The summary had me going like "Damn! This sounds amazing!" So I went and bought it and read it I am regretting it 110%. By the time I finished, the book had me going like "Damn! That sucked major butt!" The concept is pretty good but That's about it. I give this book 2 stars for Well Concept? I [...]


    20. Wow. This was one hell of a book. And that’s a pretty good achievement, considering I was tempted to DNF after about ten pages Anika Dragomir is the third most popular girl in school, behind her best friend Shelli and her best frenemy Becky. On the outside, she’s all lip gloss, boobs and blonde hair, but inside, she’s spider stew. Constantly working hard to maintain her social position, she’s fully aware that if she shows one iota of interest to Logan McDonough, who has just come back fr [...]


    21. Oh mamma, non so da dove partire.Prima cosa di tutto, secondo me la quarta di copertina è TOTALMENTE FUORVIANTE. La trama secondo me non doveva essere spiegata in questo modo perchè fa capire qualcosa di totalmente diverso rispetto a quello che il libro in realtà è.E ora addentriamoci nei meandri del vuoto totale. Sì, perchè per me questo libro è stato il vuoto. Nessuna emozione. Nulla. Non pervenuta. Adios.La protagonista, Anika è una insulsa inetta. Non mi è piaciuto il suo atteggiame [...]


    22. Well what the hell. I never saw that coming. I was laughing my face off for about 3/4 of the book and then, surprise! I get it that something would happen due to the fact that there were chapters that seemed like a flashback or something, but what happened was far from my suspicions. Really. Call me stupid or something, but not once had I thought that it will end the way it did. And to top it all, was the author's note. This book is quite depressing. Gaaaah. The story was very light at first, or [...]


    23. Honestly, 90% into the book I was so sure that I was gonna rate this 3 stars because as much as I thought the character voice was so real and strong, I wasn't fond of the prose and the love triangle. But then those last few chapters caught me off guard, raised the hairs on my arms, and broke my heart to pieces. I knew I had to give it another star for that alone.


    24. The painfully beautiful ending won me over (until about 90% in I had too many problems with the plot, love triangle etc. and thought that it would be getting a 2 star rating). That is what I'll be remembering this book for.


    25. Daha küçük yaşta olsaydım daha çok beğeneceğimi düşünüyorum. Yani 14-15-16 yaş grubuna hitap eden bir kitaptı bana göre.


    26. Anatomy of a Misfit is being marketed as a cross between Mean Girls and, I dunno, something else you’ve seen or read that’s newer than Mean Girls but strikingly similar. Misfit has that same core Mean Girls setup - a clique of the three most popular girls in school, with protagonist Anika being the nicest (i.e. the one with a conscience), the second girl being a dumb-as-rocks sidekick to both girls, and the alpha as the villain in charge of the entire school’s social strata.But unlike Mean [...]


    27. I started off hating this book, but by the second half things started to pick up and I ended up enjoying it. It's like 'Mean Girls' with more heart.
