Monday Reviews - Hit by Lorie Ann Grover

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing Hit by Lorie Ann Grover. I received this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange of an honest review.

Before I get to the review, a quick synopsis.

After receiving a full-ride scholarship to Mills College for Girls, it appears Sarah's future is all laid out before her that is until she walks into a poetry class led by Mr. Haddings, a student teacher from the nearby University of Washington. Suddenly, life on the UW campus seems very appealing, and Sarah finds herself using her poetry journal to subtly declare her feelings for Haddings. Convinced Mr. Haddings is flirting back, she sets off for school in the rain with a poem in her back pocket one that will declare her feelings once and for all.

Mr. Haddings has noticed Sarah's attention; the fallout from any perceived relationship with a student is too great a risk, and he has decided to end all speculation that morning.

But everything changes when Mr. Haddings feels a thud on his front bumper when he glances away from the road, and finds Sarah in the street with blood pooling beneath her.




I have to be honest here. I didn't like this book. In fact, I didn't finish this book. I tried, really I did but the characters were just so beyond annoying, I couldn't force myself to suffer through anymore.

I got roughly 90 pages in, which is almost half the book, and decided against continuing. 

The old teacher-student non-relationship-relationship is just that; old. I've read this book before. And frankly, I just couldn't read it again.

I gave this book a 2/5 stars on Goodreads, but even that is too high.
