The Real Thing by Cassie Mae

I’ve read Cassie Mae before, and I liked her style, she writes relatable characters. My biggest complaint about her last book (and I wouldn’t even call it a complaint) was that it was right on that border of young adult and new adult. This book though I think was much more on the new adult side, which I appreciated and seriously enjoyed. So the reason why this book spoke to me was because it centered so much on social networking and how easy it is to get lost in the online world. So Mia is huge into her online presence, and her relationship with her best friend Eric was maintained when he moved away thanks to that online presence. When the two of them move in together for the summer its finally bringing their online relationship back to the in person relationship they had in high school. So Mia is kind of addicted to being online, or at least that is how I would qualify it. She has a really hard time separating herself from being online, be it Twitter, Facebook, e-mails with friends, or just any kind of presence. She also has a huge obsession with reading, something I totally understand. I read so many books, and I run a website, so I have plenty to relate to with Mia about being online.

Friday Night Alibi by Cassie Mae

So I have actually been pretty excited about the New Adult genre, mostly because I think it’s a great filler between YA and adult books, so I was pretty excited about reading this book. I also thought the concept was a pretty interesting one, someone who makes their whole life kind of revolve around being someone else’s alibi. I don’t know about you, but when I think alibi, I think crime or adultery, so it was cool that this was totally not what the “alibis” were being used to cover up. If they alibis had been, I don’t think it would have been as good of a book. Kelli was a pretty okay character, I don’t think I liked her as much as I liked her counterpart, Chase. I may have been too knit picky when it came to her, but at the end of the day I still liked and enjoyed her. Part of my problem with her was early on in the book she’s in the shower and a guy walks in and she is totally confident and sure of her body, and then it felt like for the rest of the book she was completely not confident and constantly covering up. It felt contradictory, which took me a while to get over. Also I think the author almost made too much of a point of saying she was a good girl and reminding the reader over and over that she went to church, it got a tad […]
