    Enjoyed this book but disliked the self absorbed heroine who was a terrible friend. And it was surprising to me that Nell was so obsessed about being poor but had her own car, yet didn?t have a summer job. The book started off lighthearted but became very intense, with a lot of serio...

    The deeply flawed, competitive, and downright unlikable characters were great. I loved the hate-to-love romance. I'm not a big romance person, but that fire between Nell and Jackson was excellent. But the story itself was too long, without much interesting happening. I may have fou...

    Love-hate relationship between top two students at a South Carolina prep school. Nell Becker is the daughter of the Head of the school. Her mother drives her to constantly be the best and show up the rich kids. So she's a total over-achiever, obsessed with every grade and argumentative...

    I am a mega sucker for this kind of YA plot - a prep school, a girl and a boy are in throws of a fight for academic supremacy, the guy is popular and rich, the girl is high-strung and scrappy. Sparks fly, right? Only can she believe him? She is not stupid to think he finds her to be SO...

    **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: https://bookbriefs.net** Winner Take All is a young adult contemporary by Laurie Devore. It was a really interesting read for me. There were parts of it that I liked and parts of the story that I didn't love as much, but I will s...

    I know this took way longer than it should have for me to read this book. In my defense, I hit a high drama point and was experiencing a lot of anxiety in my personal life, so I had to put it on hold and try to become more sane before I picked it up again. Winner Take All follows th...

    I really liked it! I know a lot of people were upset about some of the mind games but it was in the copy so was expecting it. I like that Laurie Devore pushes her charactes to the edge and they go to really dark places. It makes for a compelling read and I find her books so compulsivel...

    I read about 50 pages and, while this seems somewhat promising it just didn't grab me that much. Will be giving this away so someone else can try it - watch my social media for details if you are interested. Read more of my reviews on JenRyland.com or check out my Bookstagram! ...

    Sometimes I read books and can?t help but make playlists to go with them. Sometimes I read epic books and sometimes they are just? ok. This book is my 1st 5 star of 2018. This book was soooo fucked yo! This book was all this?. Yellow diamonds in the light I w...

    I REALLY SHOULD write a review for this one. Maybe i will later, but for now let me just say.... We definitely need more heroines like the one in this book in Young Adult. And I'm not saying that because the MC is likable (she got on my nerves) but because....it's so rare to come acros...

    I received a free e-arc from NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. All views are of my own. I have no idea what I just read. I hate writing negative reviews. I hate being negative in general. But this was one of those books I just wanted to stop reading and throw out th...

    Y?all this book was a?? a real mess. I?m trying not to get mad at it but you know what?? I was actually excited to read this and it turned out to be actual crap bag full of white feminism and victim-blaming and a metaphorical landfill. Screw this. I feel completely cheated....

    Rating: 3.5 Stars This was a dark read, as expected, but it wasn't the story I was expecting. This was solidly Nell's story in my opinion. It was a tale of girl, who had been broken by the standards imposed by society, the pressure to achieve, and the demands of her overbearing moth...

    Upgrading this to 4.5 stars. WOW. This blew my mind and was pretty messed up, not gonna lie. But it was also amazing and made so many brilliant points about being a girl, and power dynamics, and basically this was such a fierce surprise of a book. ...

    Completely dramatic and angsty but written so well. Every character aside from the dads (but who cares) was interesting but the MC was the most captivating and not because she was likeable. Far from it. As the author said, she wanted a character who was messy and flawed and the MC most...

    DNF at page 57. I was excited to read this book at first because I love competition-like books that end in romance. However, it wasn't what I expected and just felt a bit.... preppy and mediocre. It's strange to have those two words in the same phrase, but this one didn't capture m...

    This whole book is a freaking metaphor and I loved it. Throughout the first 30% of this book I was kind of doubting Laurie Devore's magic but... haha. no. SHE IS MAGICAL, IT IS CONFIRMED. This book outlines the differences between how girls and boys are treated in society, and... it...

    This book has many elements that actually crave in YA contemporary books so I should?ve love it. But I did not. I liked it but I did not lose myself in it. I?m really sad about because I thought this will be a new favorite of mine so yeah that sucked but what can I say, we don?t ...

    An egotistical world of thinking that men can get away with much more than women and not need to apologize. Just look at our current state of affairs for the perfect example of such vulgarity and inappropriate actions that are now deemed the 'new norm'. However in Winner Takes All the...

    This book was honestly a train wreck from start to finish. I was intrigued by this book because the cover was pretty and the synopsis sounded good. Hate-to-love romance? Sign me up! And I read a little bit of the book before I bought it and it seemed good. Unfortunately, that?s w...

    . Oy. Ok. I have a lot of thoughts. And I'm sorry, I hate writing ranty reviews, and I always want to be nice and considerate even in my negative ones. A lot of people will honestly enjoy this book very much, but it left a bad taste in my mouth, probably because of the life I've lived....

    When I read the synopsis for this book I thought I was really going to enjoy it. I am a sucker for hate to love relationships (no matter how unrealistic they may be). However, this book made me cringe and roll my eyes and flat at scream at it. There were so many things that I disliked ...

    3.5 stars! Since I am a sucker for that "high-achieving rivals first hate each other but then develop feelings for each other-thing" I decided to give Winner Take all a chance, despite its not so good rating here on Goodreads. I must say that this book did totally surprise me in man...

    Thank you to Net Galley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review. I'm not even sure where to start. Reading this book was a chore, an absolute dreadful chore. I'm sure there are people who will adore this book but unfortunately I was not one of them. These ch...

    So Laurie Devore did it again. Somehow she managed to not let me down, even though my expectations were ridiculously high. Sign me up for overachiever HBIC vs. golden fuckboy any day of the week, but this book is so much more than the blurb suggests. I praised How to Break a Boy ...
