Kill the Boy Band
Kill the Boy Band | Goldy Moldavsky
Just know from the start that it wasn't supposed to go like this. All we wanted was to get near them. That's why we got a room in the hotel where they were staying. We were not planning to kidnap one of them. Especially not the most useless one. But we had him-his room key, his cell phone, and his secrets. We were not planning on what happened next. We swear. From thrilling new talent Goldy Moldavsky comes a pitch-black, hilarious take on fandom and the badass girls who have the power to make-or break-the people we call "celebrities."

An obsessed group of girls abduct a member of their favorite boy band and he unexpectedly winds up dead. Super cute premise! Unfortunately, I was unimpressed with the journey the book took to get us to that point. Also the language and overtly sexual dialogue was a bit much at times, I love a good curse word but sometimes they seemed to be included just to push the envelope and not for the betterment of the plot. Meh, not my fave.

I forgot I have to facilitate a discussion about this book tomorrow afternoon! #yabookclub

Speed reading powers, activate!

TheFunkyBookworm I‘m contemplating starting an in person YA book club through meet up but not sure what the turn out would be. Do you meet with teens or adults who enjoy YA? 12mo
Mem_ugh @TheFunkyBookworm I run a teen book club at my library, but I‘ve gotten several requests from adults who want to join my teen book club but are too old. I think it could go over really well if you did decide to go through with it 12mo
TheFunkyBookworm @Mem_ugh thanks! I think it‘s awesome that you have actual teens showing up for a library book club! I so struggle with getting my 8th graders to enjoy reading which is why I‘ve tried to immerse myself in YA so that I can give them great recommendations that will hopefully hook them. In the process I‘ve become hooked myself! Lol 12mo
Mem_ugh @TheFunkyBookworm it took a few months to get a group together but now I have a pretty consistent group of about 15 who come every month. I absolutely do the same thing, I‘m the youth services librarian at my library and the amount of YA I read just so that I can do good readers advisory is astronomical. I‘m a little obsessed. 😆 12mo
TheFunkyBookworm @Mem_ugh #dreamjob ... considering going back for my masters so I can do the same! 12mo

My previous read was such a downer I needed something light to listen. This wasn't that, but it was unlike anything I've ever read. Seriously evil teen age girls, crazy fan girls, one girl who tries to do the right thing and some really dumb boys. Really good Audio book narrator. #readmyshelves2018

Ordered blindly after coming across the title and a brief blurb. Pleasantly surprised with this pop of pink candy colored hardback. Kid lit but with enough dark comedy, biting dialogue and retro movie references to appeal to adults. The foursome friendship, harsh but fiercely loyal, was reminiscent of the girl squad in the movie Jawbreaker. Makes me long for the days of my teenage bedroom and the sea of heartthrob faces tacked up on its walls.

I'm quite pleased with 13/16 being that I haven't read any of the books mentioned and wasn't super boy band aware in the 90s...

LauraBrook I got 14/16, and while I haven't read any of the books, I was a boy band nut in the 90s. 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @LauraBrook, I'm often slow to adapting trends... so I just discover something is amazing as everyone else moves onto something else... I remember, vividly, this being the case with Spice Girls and Charmed (my Mum did set some pretty random rules for what I couldn't watch tho - my younger brother and sister had a lot more freedom in that sense) 2y

So I started this book about a year ago and decided to pick it up again tonight (I needed a K for the A to Z challenge). In the end I really liked it. It's been a while since I've read her books but it reminded me of Lois Duncan books I read when I was younger.

Stopped listening about 40% through. I was intrigued enough to get that far because I was curious if, at some point, these four girls would identify their actions as illegal.
They don't.
And when I realized where this story was going, I was done.
Meeeehhhhhh.

17.5 hours in to #24in48, 5th book completed! The title is pretty self-explanatory: a group of fangirls kidnap a member of the boy band they're obsessed with, and things quickly spiral out of hand while they argue over what to do with him (e.g. let him go vs. take lots of selfies vs. blackmail him for concert tickets). Equal parts ridiculous and thought provoking, this book explores fandom culture and all its implications. K for #LitsyAtoZ.

This book was absurd and darkly funny. Also if you google "fangirls" you get some amazing pictures. Like this one of the police trying to hold Beatles fans back. Fangirls are incredible/terrifying. It's not something I personally identify with but it was fun to read about.

Day 3: text-only covers. Bought this on a whim over the summer (the cover is actually what caught my eye). It's about a group of fangirls who somehow "accidentally" kidnap a member of the boy band they're stalking. I'll let y'all know if it's as ridiculous as it sounds when I get around to reading it ? @RealLifeReading #booktober

I think the premise of this is hilarious. In a nut shell, a couple of teenage girl super fans accidentally kidnap one of the members of their favorite boy band... and things escalate out of control quickly.
.
I picked it up because the title made me giggle, But... I never got that into boy band and skim read the first few chapters before deciding I needed a book with unicorns. So I'm not actually sure how it ended or how dark it got... Lol

pppooraikul I'm with you on needing a book with unicorns in it. 😂 I love the composition of this photo, though! 😉👍 3y

Thank the stars for whatever aligned in the universe for me to find this on the office take a book/leave a book shelf yesterday. Work + grad school are kicking my ass and sucking up my reading time and brain power. If I can get ahead on some school reading over the next few days, I fully plan on cheating on my TBR this weekend with this one. My 16 year old self is so looking forward to whatever this book has to offer.

Overall I ended up skimming most of this book, but I think that's more indicative of me than the book itself. It was a funny sendup of celebrity and fandom that put me in mind of Heathers.

I loved the pictured quote about the purity and strength of teenage love for something incomprehensible to adults.

YA Satire audio Hysterical, well read, mindless fun that involves every possible over the top stereotype, cliché, trope, and implausible plot line. It manages to also encapsulate the obligatory YA themes of BFF clique a la The Craft, the DUFF, the token racial minority, the extremely poor/rich, parental differences, boys, sex, et al. The author rips this generation of teens, tweets, millennials, wannabes, and their lit a new one.

The joy you find as a teen, however frivolous and dumb, is pure and meaningful. It doesn't matter that it might ferment and taste different when you're older. That's the whole point of being a teenager — not worrying about the future.

Holy freaking buckets of crazy twisted entertainment batman! This was a train wreck you stopped to watch only the train kept wrecking until the very end. Splendid fun!

It's the clash of boy bands and fangirls, and it did not disappoint. The characters flew off the page and were all so well written.

It was kind of like the music video of Greek Tragedy by The Wombats but with more girls, a little less death, and more laughter and entertainment.

CaitlinSiem Just under 11 hours clocked in and this is my second book completed for the #24in48 readathon. Woohoo! 3y

Nothing like a fun little book haul to perk you up. These came from across the pond thanks to Book Depository, which I love because I can choose the cover I prefer (when there's a difference) on books I purchase: US or UK.

My book came with some cool items, knuckle tattoos and a pin. I liked the idea of this book, but I couldn't really connect with it. That's probably on me though, as the fictional fangirl/fanboy culture wasn't my thing. Did laugh out loud at times, very funny.

Maybe it's just the whole satire-for-teens angle but this sort of reminded me of Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. I love the cover. I loved the multi-layered look at fandom and obsession. It wasn't perfect, I'd probably rate it at a 3.5, but it's still worth a read.
