    I've been dying to read Gina Ciocca's Busted ever since I first saw the Veronica Mars comparison. Veronica Mars is one of my favorite TV shows so any book that could potentially life up to that level of awesomeness is a book I need in my possession. Plus sleuthing in general is just a ...

    The blurb was a bit misleading, I thought she was the queen of spies, but it was not like that. She catches a cheater and her next case is when her old frenemy Kendall shows up and wants to know if her boyfriend TJ is cheating. So not spyqueen. Marissa loves journalism. She likes ha...

    I liked Ciocca?s debut novel, especially because of her writing, so there wasn?t any doubts about me picking this book up. Busted was a fun read for me. I thought it had a good balance between a hint of a mystery, some romance and friendship dynamics, that I found to be enjoyable. ...

    Okay, so, basically I snatched this up only because it said ?For fans of Veronica Mars?. I?ve been missing my favorite PI and her bad boy love interest fiercely, and I totally fell for it. Busted was not like Veronica Mars. At all. Yes, Marissa did stalk cheaters, but it was a...

    That was a lot of fun! It had a vibe of Veronica Mars to it and I loved that. Lots of twists and turns and nothing was what you thought. Gina is quickly becoming a fav author. Review to come. ...

    I loved this book. I really needed a good YA that was going to make me love reading and would make me want to write again. Busted was definitely it! Be sure to add it to your list. I've gained a book boyfriend, and a book I'd happily read again! ...

    I flew through this book after being hooked from the start. I love Veronica Mars and the idea for this book so much, and it didn't disappoint. Marisa was relatable, TJ was an excellent love interest, and the supporting characters were all wonderful. I just didn't love the whole mea...

    The reason I didn't enjoy this book is 50% my fault because I just read the first part of the blurb and ran with it. All I saw was a kickass girl with a camera running around catching two-timing boyfriends and the cover. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Busted by Gina Goicca is a...

    *ARC Kindly provided by Sourcebooks Fire for review* I love YA, I love mystery and I love spy stories. Add up these three and that book will be up on my TBR. The beginning of Busted really excites me; I?m really looking forward to the sleuthing that will happen on the book and it ...

    Busted has everything you want from a young adult book; plenty of drama, a bit of swoon-worthy romance, a heaping pile of cuteness and friendship. Gina Ciocca has given readers a unique storyline with Busted, perfectly combining teens over-use of internet and social media with all the ...

    3.5 It has been a long, loooooong time since I last finished reading a book in one day, and Busted was the one that finally cracked me after a while, even with responsibilities the whole afternoon. Busted was written in such a way that it was addicting and hard to put down, and I co...

    3.5 Stars Busted is a super cute novel with a hint of mystery. It is all about a girl who spies on her clients? boyfriends to catch them cheating. I enjoyed the main characters, but there was not enough action, and the book falls a bit flat. This book has a very intriguing conc...

    3.5 / 5 Fangs Busted was a fun, quirky, and unique novel! One of my favorite things about this book was how accurate it felt to a typical high school experience. There was a lot of drama involving what people thought of each other, and if that's not true of every high school, then I...

    I am the author of this book, and this story has a very special place in my heart. Of my three published novels (I also wrote LAST YEAR'S MISTAKE and A KISS IN THE DARK), this one makes me laugh the hardest. You'd never know (at least I think) that I wrote most of BUSTED while crawling...

    Busted was a fun read. It was cutesy, dramatic, and so easy to read. I was initially drawn into the story because of the PI situation the protagonist, Marisa, finds herself in. And I ended up liking all the spying, scheming, and the tangled web of secrets that starts to come unraveled ...

    this was very anti climactic to me. I liked the idea but the execution was just meh. when the plot twist came i had already had an idea of who it might be. I Just wanted it to be more than what it actually was. There was just something missing and towards the end it just didn't feel re...

    **3.5 stars** Entertaining and faced paced, this book was really fun to read. Marisa is lovable and relatable. She's smart and quirky and just slightly geeky, but also very girly - everything she owns is covered in rhinestones. She's creative and she cares about her education, she...

    3.5 stars, rounded up to 4 because I loved TJ and the romance was really sweet. I think this book tried to do too much. I enjoyed the first half (girl tries to catch her friend?s bf cheating only to realize she kind of likes the guy herself) more than the second half (which had a...

    ? Subjective opinions Okay, I can't believe I finished this book at one day. HAHAHA. So, where do we start? It's first time for me read Ciocca's book. I wanted to read her books so bad since the cover quite eye-catching. And, I got 'Busted' before her debut book, 'La...
