Hello Bookish Babes! Happy Friday to you all!
We made it to the end of the week and that means I have another book review for you! Actually, hold that thought. I finally… FINALLY got around to reading After by Anna Todd. It’s been on my TBR list for ages and all my close friends have been praying for the day that I finally pick up the book to read it. The time has come friends and I finished this book after (see what I did there) many sleepless nights because I 👏COULD 👏NOT 👏PUT 👏IT DOWN.👏
Because this book is super hyped up (and for good reason) + it is being made into a movie (release date next week, April 12!), I decided to go about this book review a different way. I’ve decided to do a book “rant” and sort of tweet my way through the book. I wrote down all my thoughts as I thought them and I’ve shared them with you today. I hope you enjoy! I’ll be sharing more thoughts on the book on my IG story! Book gossip with me @giselasbooked.
After Book Rant
Gosh I’m getting a sense of foreboding already. Is it just me? 😨
Does Tessa not have GPS on her phone?
Can’t she call an Uber to leave the party?
This guy better have a really good reason why he’s acting all jerky to her.
Really!? You are going to play the jealousy card after you scolded and yelled at her!? 😡
Oh gosh arguing over pride and prejudice. Is Hardin like Darcy… probably? What a dick!
This guy thinks very highly of himself but also girl… don’t lie to yourself.
Whoa, um okay twilight moment!? Is Hardin a vampire? (As if you could fight me off! *Edward Cullen voice*)
I’m confused. Is he jealous!?
That boy Noah is really clueless. Gosh poor puppy.
Of course. Kissing someone while they are yelling at you is a good way to stop the argument and make everything better. *says sarcastically*
I hate myself for swooning. Ughhh my friends would NOT like this. They would not want me to date a guy like this! 😥
Great! There he goes again, f***ing it up!
Well, at least finally vanilla boy is out of the picture. He was kind of boring and annoying. Blahhhh. 💤
Five!?? Why the hell does she get up at 5 a.m. for a 9 a.m. class!??
Tessa and Molly… the way you are acting to each other… not cool.
Okay, they are happy again and gosh darn it, I hate myself for swooning and being happy too. Rawr! *Alexa play “Drumming Song” by Florence and the Machine.*
He’s funny and adorable… sigh. Why am I like this??
What the hell is up with her mom!? Is she being serious!? Like yeah I mean okay Hardin isn’t the greatest but damn!
Ugh, I feel it. Things are too good. Something bad is going to happen. Like category 5 hurricane bad. Can I hide? Must I keep reading? 😱
Oh no…. Who’s the suit? I smell trouble.
Like the girls from The Bold Type say… There’s a special place in hell for girls who don’t support girls.
No Tessa no. Stay. No. I usually would not advocate listening to Hardin but for once in your life just listen!!!!
Why do you have to say those things Hardin!? Ugh, why do you have to be cute!!!! Stop it! Who gave your permission?
Great. Just like that. Poof. Cranky moody temperamental childish Hardin.
Acting like a caveman is right. Humph.
Devil worshiper… LMAO. Seriously though what is wrong with her mother? She’s nuts.
When is the shoe going to drop? Can someone buckle me in? I need to brace for impact. 😱
Oh my gosh. Those bastards. They are horrible! WTF.
Who gave these authors permission to make cute guys assholes! So we fall in love with them!? Their outsides should match their insides!! 💔
There you have it bookish babes. I really did enjoy the book despite all my ranting. Anna Todd is a very compelling writer. Her words were just urging me along like the little engine that could. That ending though. I’m so upset and now I have no choice but to read the second book pronto!
Let me know what you all thought of the book. What do you think of Hardin and of Tessa? Are you excited for the movie? I sure am! This story hits a very close to my own personal experience and I may share a bit on another post. Until next time my friends!
Read Something Wonderful & Stay Curious.
