    Rating Clarification Closer to 2.5 StarsTo say I m slightly disappointed in The Fine Art of Truth or Dare is such an understatement This book has been on my wish list for months I had heard rumblings that it was a cross between Pretty in Pink and Anna and the French Kiss and all that did was increase my anticipation evenThose were a movie and a book that I have crushed over and have probably watched and read at least half dozen times respectively So I had nothing but excitement going Rating Clarification Closer to 2.5 StarsTo say I m slightly disappointed in The Fine Art of Truth or Dare is such an understatement This book has been on my wish list for months I had heard rumblings that it was a cross between Pretty in Pink and Anna and the French Kiss and all that did was increase my anticipation evenThose were a movie and a book that I have crushed over and have probably watched and read at least half dozen times respectively So I had nothing but excitement going on for this book.Well, after finishing this story, I want to sort of cry foul Yes, there were small elements that you can say paralleled the movie I adored, but to such a slight degree and with poor execution that it s really not even worth mentioning As far as the comparison to AatFK nope, I don t see the connection It s truly disappointing to see this YA book fall into the ever increasing pit of boring and predictable stories where good art cover and misleading blurbs hook you only to leave you hanging.The first 30 or so pages sucked me in I ll give it that But shortly after, I felt I was being dragged through a torture session where the characters, plot, narrative and even the setting completely lost all of its appeal I didn t care for the main protags Ella and Alex Not one bit sadly I couldn t stand the school Willing or any of the students that attended that pretentious academy And, was I the only one that found it strange that Ella carried on pretty deep, meaningful at least to her conversations with a dead man that hasn t been around for over 100 years Did I get it right that she talked to a postcard image of him So ridiculous that I felt I was wasting my time Also, was anyone else perplexed about the fact that a scholarship student can ditch so often and barely be passing her classes, but still keep her free meal ticket to the school without one call into the Dean or Academic Counselor s office Lucky girl But so not reality.Also, I felt it took forever for Jensen to get to the main point of the story There was a long stretch of time say 140 pages or so that I was beginning to wonder what the book was truly about or where it was headed There was karaoke going on, research on a dead man, mean girl attacks, wedding planning, door knob painting, school dance planning UGH the list goes on It was like constantly trying to figure out how this would all come together Exhausting really However, what bothered me most was the writing It really annoyed me that many times I felt I had either missed something important that was shared or I had possibly walked into the middle of a conversation I can t stand when authors make assumptions that we should get where they re trying to go because well we re mind readers No, it doesn t work that way It only serves to annoy the reader.Overall, I m sorry to say that Melissa Jensen failed to impress me Sorry, this one didn t do it for me At all And, it would be unkind of me to dare anyone to read it

    I don t think I ve ever been so uncomfortable with anybody, much less a fictional female character I just really hope that I don t ever meet anyone who talks to a picture of a dead old guy like one talks to their boyfriend girlfriend It s just not right And to take advice from him constantly shudders Now I could certainly settle for doing a bullet list for the things I didn t like and be done with it, but then it d look a whole lot like this Things I Hated Ella Ella Ella Ella Ell I don t think I ve ever been so uncomfortable with anybody, much less a fictional female character I just really hope that I don t ever meet anyone who talks to a picture of a dead old guy like one talks to their boyfriend girlfriend It s just not right And to take advice from him constantly shudders Now I could certainly settle for doing a bullet list for the things I didn t like and be done with it, but then it d look a whole lot like this Things I Hated Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Ella Alex.I don t think you d like that very much But that doesn t mean that the list doesn t just sum up my feelings perfectly Oh how I hated Ella I bet you can t say, Stereotypical character , faster than I can choke our lovely protagonist to her death And Alex No Just no QA TIME Q Did you find any redeeming qualities where Ella was concerned A Why good sir, no I did not Do you think you can any redeeming qualities when a girl who talks to dead people for advice and thinks she s the shit is involved Q If not, did you find any redeeming qualities at all A Actually, yes I did I mean, dude, have you seen Frankie He reminds me of Adrian And if someone reminds me of Adrian, he has to be awesome Q Did you like Alex, the love interest A disgusted face I don t even want to know how a disgusted face looks like Q What changes do you think the author should make A Well if I were her, I d first remove everything but Frankie Then I d open a copy of Anna and the French Kiss to see how a real contemporary is done But sadly, the world doesn t revolve around me sighs I might have to contemplate taking over the world one day if that s what it takes Well, I think that s just about it If you still insist of reading, I have only two words for you Good luck

    Sorry guys Not sure if I ll review this as I didn t enjoy it as much as I wanted.Note this has nothing to do with the comparison with Anna, it just wasn t my cup of tea The only character I liked was Frankie, nothing else managed to grab my attention Hopefully you will enjoy it a lot better.Pre reading thoughts Oh heavens, did someone just say Anna and the French Kiss D

Things1 Truth I m terrified of an embarrassing number of things, including Ferris wheels, rusty nails, being alone, and being with someone.2 Truth I m working on that.3 Dare Take a chance on me, Alex Bainbridge Qu ieu sui precieuse, Ieu lo sai Those Gifs out there truly show how excited and happy i was for when i came across it s ebook.this one had to be one of the most anticipated reads in my TBR , obviously because of it s highly attractive tagline Pretty in Pink meets Anna and the French Kiss and because the guy s name is Alex and lately i seem to have gooey fantasies about guys with this name.the thing that hurts the most is that while i could see 5 stars shining brightly on a neon board above the cover , while i was hoping for A LOT of swooning and a LOT of drooling i came across none.Sure it was a sweet book , but giving it THAT kind of a tagline probably made me set up the whole bar and level of expectations quite high.okay so here s the deal ,We have Fiorella Ella Marino as our quirky , insecure , shy and a highly relatable protagonist She lives , breathes and creates art.She s obsessed with Edward Willing , a 19th century artist , art icon , imaginary companion and also the topic of her honors thesis She goes to Edward Willing High School and is basically an invisible human among the vast population of rich , popular and good looking people in her school with her two best friends , Frankie and Sadie who she loves the most i ll have to say that i found her annoying as well as my true best friend in some places in the book.her belief and ideas of love are something that has been almost every girl s way of thinking Her little mentions of explaining scenarios by distinguishing between wishful thinking and reality was an absolute hit.for example i really loved this one here ,You mean you won t sing, Sadie corrected I tried to be charitable about her treason she goes pretty brainless around Daniel Ella sings reallywell I m sure she does Daniel tipped his beer glass in my direction In fact, I bet she could totally murder Don t Stop Believin A song that is actuallyone of my guilty pleasures I think he probably knew that I think he probably had himself a lovely chuckle over it Then he whispered, Coward In another story, the plucky little heroine would have slapped both hands onto the table, making it wobble a little on its predictably uneven fourth leg.She would then have taken both hands, ripped the long scarf from around her neck and, chin high and scar spotlit, stalked to the dais, leaped up, andslayed the audience with her kick ass version of Respect Or maybe Single Ladies, for the sheer Yay factor.In this version, I gave Daniel what I hoped was a slayer look and busied myself refolding my napkin.i must say ,the author has done a stellar job in keeping it real and i adore it then enters our guy , Alex Bainbridge.Hot , tall , beautiful , Lacrosse player , Evil cliche girlfriend of a year and a half and french extraordinaire.That s Alex for you.Now the thing is , Ella is quite a bomber when it comes to French Hailing from an italian family , French is the last thing she cares about until it comes down to her grades , of course.Comes our dearest french extraordinaire to the rescue ta da and that s how things to start to happen..and thus our story begins.The Fine art Of Truth And Dare by Melissa Jensen , kickstarts with an awesome , hilarious start i could see myself grinning like a pig in all it s glory because i felt that all my excitement and patience was finally showing colors With hilarious conversations with Edward Willing and End of every chapter with a laughing fit , i could see the shining future of the book.Maybe i was just too fast.around the Mid section of the book , it felt slack and almost boring.it felt dragged and there were times where this book completely lost me Also i felt that some parts of the storyline was completely unnecessary Like take Daniel s character Frankie s brother for an instance why was he even there what difference did it make Also as much as i liked Ella s character , i felt disconnected with her as well Alex had to be one of those heroes who i couldn t even understand i have this crazy impulse to compare between the lines.for an instance , You has Ettiene and Alex.You don t know much about Ettiene You don t know much about Alex.Yet you swoon over Ettiene and gush about practically everything related to him while you feel disconnected with Alex and find him likable just for the sake of it.around this time Pretty in Pink had been rocking my mind as well.Blaine might have not been a favorite of mine yes i always vouched for Ducky but when he said those three magical words to Ms.Ringwald , i believed and had those warm fuzzy things flowing through me.While Alex s character is a definite parallel version of Blaine i wasn t even satisfied with the things he said.infact , i was so detached i was almost hoping Frankie who i truly loved to come ahead and say that he s not gay and that he s loved Ella all his life and blahblahblahblah or something like Daniel stepping forward and saying it was always you and so on.though the character of Edward Willing was a pretty sought out one i felt that in some areas i was actually wondering and trying hard to analyze things as he spoke because trust me , it became so dull i almost got confused and had no idea of what was going on.i also feel cheated because where were the French Lessons okay so there were one or two but it felt so bland and short i think other than the end which might i mention was one of the best things about the book , there were almost zero Alex and Ella cute moments.but with the loose ends comes the sweet treats as well i loved Ella s grandmother her feisty attitude was definitely something to look out for.i was enad by the story of Michelangelo Costa , Elizabetta and the sea I loved the restaurant scenes with Ella s family it felt nice , homely and warm.Karaoke bar inner turmoil between truth and dare Italian food great music and art , are things that saved this book.as i end ,i have this need to say that this book definitely had great potential.The ideas were fantastic mermaids , art , insecurity , Connolis , short girl and tall guy , cute moments that did make me smile and funny banters here and there ,THE FINE ART OF TRUTH AND DARE by Melissa Jensen is definitely a light , hearty read i do recommend this book but also advice not to set expectations TOO high no , i m not degrading the book but while some may love it , some may go through feelings of disappointment as well

    When I was reading this novel, I was very entertained by it I found it a complex exploration of adolescence punctuated with wit, humour and characters I could empathize with and relate to I found the writing style to be engaging and smart and I really liked the different mediums interspersed in the novel that gave it a wider scope than the simple narrative technique would have Stuff like emails, lists, excerpts from scholarly articles The conversations with the painting sketch of Edward Will When I was reading this novel, I was very entertained by it I found it a complex exploration of adolescence punctuated with wit, humour and characters I could empathize with and relate to I found the writing style to be engaging and smart and I really liked the different mediums interspersed in the novel that gave it a wider scope than the simple narrative technique would have Stuff like emails, lists, excerpts from scholarly articles The conversations with the painting sketch of Edward Willing were pretty genius and I was enormously amused by them.The friendships were well portrayed and Frankie remained a favourite character and still remains one though the magic has significantly faded from the novel All characters are well hewn except for the mean girls who remain a mystery though their mean girl ness was justified in this case and I will say it out right now I wish the story had been about Ella and Daniel rather than Ella and Alex because well, I have some problems where that is concerned.I may have talked about this earlier When the love interest is dating the Mean Girl who is excessively mean to the protagonist, it makes me doubt the legitimacy of the love interest If he is so droolworthy and nice and all things awesome, why in the world is he in a relationship with someone as horrible as the Mean Girl What does it say about him that he is intimate with a person who, from the descriptions of her and through her treatment of Ella, is just terrible person Is she a Mean Girl so the protagonist does not look like a horrible cow for stealing away a nice girl s boyfriend Which is another issue I have with the book He has a girlfriend and yet he is treating you like you are special which is awesome and all for you but there is another girl out there One who has a right to know that whatever you are doing at his house, it is not the studying you are supposed to be And hell girl, why would you want to be with a guy who treats girls the way he is treating his current girlfriend and you are not her It disturbs me, okay It is cheating And Ella s insistence on holding on to a guy who has a girlfriend makes me think not so friendly thoughts towards her This normalizes cheating, in fact, it promotes it simply because the girlfriend is a Mean Girl I m sorry but no, I don t buy that He should have had the balls to break things off with her before coming after Ella.Another thing that did not sit well with me is how Ella goes off on a tangent about what an assertive girl would do making that assertive girl look seem ridiculous and very improbable A strong girl an undesirable girl with a side of ridiculousness which may have been charming the first time around but raised my hackles all the other times No, being an assertive girl, Ella, means having the foresight to see that a guy who acts like this with one girl will most probably act like this with another girl That if the Mean Girl is the one being ditched right now, it will you being ditched the next time An assertive girl will realize that acceptance from a boy means less than acceptance from yourself An assertive girl will realize that her friends meanto her and will meanto her in the future than some guy who looks through her in the hallways at school That s what an assertive girl would do How an assertive girl would act.Oh I know that not every character can be superwoman I don t expect every character to be actualized and strong I just don t want assertiveness, a strong self esteem to be disparaged as I felt they were in this novel I totally disliked the ending of this novel Ella does not grow as a character Superficially it may seem that she does but really, it s only a Cinderella story.That rant over, I did enjoy the book as I was reading it which is why I give it three stars If you do not give books the same analysis I do, I dare say you will have less problems with the novel than I did Read it for Frankie, yo

    So, I ve been waiting to read this book, well, since I saw it floating around blogs and GR, it sounded like it might be a good one, they did mention Anna and the French Kiss meets something else I haven t read, and blessed him her who wrote the synopsis, he she has no clue whatsoever how to compare books, because AatFK rocked, and TFAoToD SUCKED Truth I felt cheated, I was expecting a lot of fun truths and dares Hey Don t judge me I loved playing truth or dare Why I think this books sucked So, I ve been waiting to read this book, well, since I saw it floating around blogs and GR, it sounded like it might be a good one, they did mention Anna and the French Kiss meets something else I haven t read, and blessed him her who wrote the synopsis, he she has no clue whatsoever how to compare books, because AatFK rocked, and TFAoToD SUCKED Truth I felt cheated, I was expecting a lot of fun truths and dares Hey Don t judge me I loved playing truth or dare Why I think this books sucked 1 Ella.Yes, I think the number one reason I hated this book was because of her, I think if you take Ella of the book, you d have a winner She s someone who in a million trillion years I wouldn t be caught dead with, she s boring, boring and yes BORING And she talks to dead people No no, not ghosts, not spirits, not even zombies, she talks to this dead artist, like, TALKS to him, in my standards, if you re not in paranormal fantasy novel, it s never a good sign if you talk to dead people.2 The flat eventless encounters with Ella and Alex That says it all There was nothing that drew me to like the romance The shared a lemon soda and watched Jurassic Park in french is that the part which is suppose to be similar to AntFK Bo ho I hadromance with a guy I went out once who talked about his mother 90% of the time, seriously YA authors, learn to romance PLEASE 3 The writing.I found myself skipping pages at the second half of the book, not that the first half was better, but I was hopeful it would get better, at some point, I was hoping someone would kill someone so I won t have to, that surely had to spice things up 4 Ella.Yes I know I mentioned her, but I hated her so much that I had to list her again.5 AlexI hated the major characters of the book, isn t that sad The main reason I hated Alex was, that after a few weeks of hiding Ella from the school and his friends, she shows him her scar, and this is the only time I felt anything but hate for Ella his response was and I quoteI don t even know what okay would mean, he said Okay We ve never been okay We ve been kinda scrambling for it I meancrapThank you For showing me I know it cost you something But Jesus, Ella, I really don t want to feel like I have to constantly be reassuring you of things you should know for yourself It s exhausting and takes all theI don t knowsatisfactionout of saying what I feel Oh yeah, he s prince charming alright Yes I get that they re only 17 and shit, but this is a girl who hid her scar from the world, it took herself confidence, made her shy, and she found it in herself to finally show that scar to some, he goes like uh um, I can t keep reassuring you it doesn t bother me, I ve been doing it for three weeks for god sake Yeah, Alex, you re the man There were some things that saved this book from getting a 1 star, or going to my less than one star shelf, Frankie is one of them, I wanted to readabout him Ella s family is another, I guess each deserved a star for being in the book, I felt sorry for them.Two stars in my book, means I get to use this book for future sarcastic remark, and that s what I m gonna do
