Reading “The V Girl” – in GIFs

Only a couple of days after the tour, I had to post my reaction to Mya Robarts’ book “The V Girl”. The novel follows the efforts of a young girl living in a military-ruled nation as she tries desperately to lose her virginity to someone she loves before the soldiers can forcibly take it away from her. Writing a review couldn’t fully justify how disappointed I was in this novel. This is how I felt when reading the book:

Reading the first few pages of the novel

Reaching Chapter four and realizing that this book might just be glorifying Stockholm’s Syndrome

raised brows

Deciding that I’ve already reached the middle and it’s too late to give up now

determination

Thinking that at least the love scenes are well-written

Finally, when the book ends

Never Again

I think that this pretty much sums up my thoughts about the novel. Still, don’t let my reactions stop you from reading it. It might not have been my cup of tea but maybe it’s yours.

Leigh-Ann Brodber is an upcoming enthusiastic journalist. She knows it is a field that is already heavily flooded by diverse opinions, hard criticism and occasional appraisal (when it’s due), but she’s sure she’ll be able to add her own colors to the journalism rainbow soon enough. Leigh-Ann currently attends COSTAATT, a college located in the Caribbean, where she’s pursuing her Bachelors in Mass Communication. She’s written film, stage production and food articles for various websites, and she’s also a born and bred animal rights activist, although she doesn’t think she’ll ever give up her rights to eat chicken. She has helped out at her local hospital many-a-time by indulging in weekly chit-chat with patients under a program called Candy Stripers. She recently started getting help for her long term Facebook addiction, she swears.
