Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1) - Jamie McGuire Well I gave this one star initially because it's just not my cup of tea. I read it very quickly. The relationship between Abby and Travis is too unhealthy. BUT I get the appeal of this bad boy who just can't seem to get enough of the girl he's in love with and how that kind of writing and relationship really pulls you in as a reader which is why I gave the extra star. Abby as a character was just annoying and her back story about her dad was just didn't reach me as reader. I couldn't empathize with her at all. Basically, this book reminded me of a lot of fanfiction that I've read before. Essentially, I didn't like it at all, but I totally understand why so many do. This makes me want to go read Anna and the French Kiss...that's my kind of contemporary YA!
