    3. I enjoyed Popping the Cherry as a cute romance, but it frustrated me in so many ways Our main character, Lena or Tink, as the romantic interest calls her is at school one day when her friends stage an Intervention to get her cherry popped Or in other words, to lose her virginity I wasn t entirely comfortable with how this happened, as Lena then spent most of the novel on the quest to lose her virginity or rather as I saw it to fit in with her friends Suddenly the premise didn t look nearly as am [...]

    5. I received this book as gift for an honest review.This book was a struggle to read due to the over abuse of comas, the often than not omitted words within sentences and the fact that entire sentences tended to be duplicated The one that jumped out the most at me was in chapter twenty where an entire paragraph was doubled up All in all the writing had my fingers twitch, my eyebrows cringe and my teeth grind Spoiler Alert On to the plot line Operation Popping the Cherry was an intervention Valent [...]

    12. 3.5 5I have to be honest and say that it took we a while to get used to the characters For me the UK setting and close age to my oldest daughter freaks me out a little bit The attitude that virginity is something to be ashamed of and disposed of at the earliest convenience really annoys me Saying that this book did portray the emotional side of a physical relationship really well, something that is often neglected and I feel should really be discussed with teens alongside the physical within the [...]

    13. This review was first published at M s Bookshelf mssbookshelfFirst things first I really like this cover It s playful, lovely bright colors the cover really pops I was horrified by the whole Operation Popping the Cherry What kind of friend would organize something like that At first I was even shocked when Lena actually agreed on going along, but then again I can relate to feeling the odd one out when it comes to cherries at 17, so maybe it does sound like a decent idea, when it s proposed to y [...]

    15. When I read the cute blurb for this book, I thought I had the story all figured out Boy, was I wrong I d expected a typical, teenaged plot line that went from A to B without many surprises, but Popping the Cherry was anything but Sure, it was cute and funny reminding me a lot of Louise Rennison s Georgia Nicolson only all grown up , but it was also dramatic and suspenseful The romance was highly entertaining and than once, I felt a tug on my heartstrings.After the first few pages, I was hooked [...]

    16. Popping the Cherry was going to be my holiday read but I actually read it before I went away It was only going to be the first few chapters and before I knew it I was halfway through the book.I really liked Lena and after the Richard Winsor reference it just got even better Finally a girl who with excellent taste My first impression of Popping the Cherry, fun and cute, is accurate however there is so much to this story What happens to Lena on her first date effects the rest of the story Jake is [...]

    17. Popping the Cherry was an adorable story about a girl whose virginity is the topic of much discussion with her friends So much so that they enroll her in Operation Popping the Cherry, giving her a list of potential male specimens to see if she can just get it over with But in Lena s case she only has eyes for one, and he is the forbidden fruit, her best friends big brother I enjoyed this book so much Lena was a great narrator I loved her friends And goodness did I love Jake I look forward to rea [...]

    18. NOTE I received the book via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.When I read the premise of Popping the Cherry, I thought Man, this sounds so good So new and different It turned out to be just that a fresh NA romance story, that had nothing to do with the usual, too cliched girl meets guy at college and they hook up right away crap No.Unfortunately, there was another problem that bothered me out of my wits, and consequently lowered my rating It was the writing style I know this is too sub [...]

    19. I had not previously heard of this book until the author contacted me regarding a review request After a quick look to find out I decided that I HAD to read this book From the minute I began reading Popping the Cherry I was hooked, I love that the book is so British, even down to all the British swear words and slang The characters were instantly likeable and believable, and I found myself falling into the pages and not wanting to come up for air.The protagonist Valentina Lena has just had her [...]

    20. When I was offered the chance to be part of Auerlia B Rowl s blog tour for novel Popping The Cherry, I was really looking forward to reading the novel I love young adult new adult books and it s been a while since I ve read a YA NA novel I liked the idea of Valentina AKA Lena popping her cherry, and I though it would be like Cora Carmack s fabulous novel Losing It But, it wasn t It wasn t like Losing It at all, and unfortunately I didn t enjoy the novel as much as I wanted to, mostly because I w [...]

    21. 3.5 Stars Seventeen year old Valentina Lena Bell has just failed her driving test and has been dumped by her boyfriend, the reason being she wouldn t have sex with him She thinks she is the only virgin still out there, a fact that she isn t too happy about, yet afraid to do anything about Her friends Gemma, Flick, Chloe, and Piper decide it is time for some intervention and convince her that the best solution to the problem is to get laid Thus Operation Popping the Cherry commences Lena has a li [...]

    22. Ahh, this book was exactly what I needed After trawling through a bunch of difficult fantasy novels, I was than ready for this easy to read, light hearted bit of contemporary romance It was so nice reading a Brit book too the voice is so different to a US one, but I often forget just how much difference it makes, what with the market being flooded with US fiction As I m taking part in the British Books Challenge this year though, I m doing my best to read and plug as many good UKYA books as I c [...]

    23. received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review Some part of me was disappointed to miss out on the chance of doing a killer impression of a huge caterpillar emerging from a cocoon, or maybe a beetle flat on its back and trying to right itself How funny would that have looked Let me preface this review with the fact that I don t necessarily agree with the concept that a 17 year old should lose her virginity just be cool That said, I did like this story It is a coming of age sto [...]

    24. This book is a really cute fun read After reading the second chapter I was concerned I m not in favor of peer pressure and felt like she was getting it from her friends in the very start of the book Lena felt it was either give up her virginity or give up her friends In reality it isn t really like that Her friends love her and are just trying to open her eyes that the first time is rarely what we are all brought up to expect That s clearly seen when you keep reading So keep reading I quickly go [...]

    25. Initially I wasn t sure how I d feel about a book that implies a certain pressure to have sex whether you re ready or not I spent the early parts of the book a little annoyed with Lena for being ashamed of being a virgin, and a lot annoyed with her friends for making her feel that she had reason to be ashamed.As an old fashioned conservative mother of two girls, I was disappointed and than a little afraid for my own young daughters when Lena gave in to her friends intervention and agreed give O [...]

    26. Author Aurelia B Rowl has got British teenagers spot on in this young adult novel Many young adult novels do not portray realistic teenagers and instead focus on unrealistic experiences and love Protagonist Lena Bell is desperate to lose her virginity None of her friends are virgins any and she can t quite connect with them in the same way any because of her not having had sex I found the conversations and actions between Lena and her friends to be really realistic and I could really picture the [...]

    27. This book is a coming of age story so is ideal, I d suggest, for readers ranging from late teens upwards.Valentina Bell, or Lena, feels like she is bad at everything She fails her driving test, she fails at keeping herself safe, and she fails at relationships Her friends decide to perform at intervention and come up with Operation Popping The Cherry They create a list of guys they think would be ideal for her and she sets about working her way through the list.Along the way there are plenty of d [...]

    28. Review can also be found at Jackie s Book World Blog Popping the Cherry was a humorous and fun read I felt that I really got to know the characters really well and it was a page turner I couldn t put it down, especially in those scenes with Valentina Lena and Jake Aside from that, I felt that the book was very well written and developed The subject of losing her virginity becomes the center attention when Lena s friends come up with Operation Popping the Cherry, which lists candidates that she c [...]

    29. Originally published on justthisteenagerSo basically this story revolves around the degrading of sex to a meaningless act an act that if you haven t ever performed it you re a virgin it means you re uncool, abnormal, frigid.Popping the Cherry exaggerated normal life in order to portray how the world is based on images and how people present themselves, and how people perceive something as the way to do it and feel if they don t do it that way they re a total failure.Although there was occasional [...]

    30. I just couldn t resist this title The entire premise sounded fun and to be honest, a disaster in the making so I thought, why not And it ended up being one of the delightful books I ve read all year.Lena is most definitely not thrilled with this plan her friends have hatched She half heartedly goes along with it even coming up with a shortlist of guys but she s not really intent on following through On her first date that ends awfully, Lena finds herself without a ride home and no way to contac [...]
