Book Review – Mine: A Love Story by Scott Prussing

I purchased Mine: A Love Story without knowing anything about it because the cover appealed to me. I had recently finished reading You by Caroline Kepnes, so for some reason, I thought this book might be similar. (Deranged person obsesses over someone after one date–something like that.) Turns out, this book is a young adult novel about a young woman and the new relationships she develops during her first year in college. She makes some nice, reliable girlfriends, but runs into some trouble when it comes to the guys (one in particular, rather). As I read this book, I constantly felt like I was waiting for something to happen, and for the most part, nothing I thought was going to happen happened. And nothing particularly dramatic occurred either, which isn’t a bad thing, but I tend to enjoy over-the-top scandal and gut-wrenching heartache.

Memorable Quote:

“A girl’s figure is the one place where B’s or C’s are way better than A’s.”

This is a good, clean YA read with A LOT of references to Taylor Swift. In my opinion, it would be most appropriate for a high schooler.

Rating: 3 STARS
