Why? Why did it took me so long to read this book? *le creys* I’ve been seeing this book for so long, but I kept dodging it. I don’t know why, it’s just that I’m not in the mood for it back then. I mean, I have – had like 100 books on my TBR shelf, virtually. I didn’t have time for it. Finally, last week, I organized my TBR shelf on Goodreads. Yep, I removed some not so interesting books, I don’t even know why I marked them as to read. And do you know how many books were left after that? Guess what? 30+ books. Seriously? I can’t freaking believe it. Anyway, god. I’m so talkative. Don’t mind me. Just keep on scrolling and reading. Okay?
I’m glad I didn’t remove The DUFF on my shelf. I am so glad. Hallelujah. Because this book is one of my favorite books now. (Ugh. I want this book physically on my physically small shelf).
I loved this book, okay? Loved it. Absofuckingterrificlutely. I loved every single thing of it. Funny? Check. Realistic? Well, heck yes! Sweet? Check, check.
Kody Keplinger, god, woman, you are amazing. Your book is UGH-mazing. You did an incredible job on developing the characters. Hands down, woman. I absolutely loved every single one of them. Yes, they are flawed, but that’s what made them real and lovable. Who would want a fake, unreliable, annoying character, right? right? This book hasn’t.
Bianca Piper, main protagonist, I loved her to bits and pieces. She’s sassy, brutal, funny. I connected easily to her, you know, because I’m also a DUFF. I’m not exactly fat or ugly. I’m plain and my friends, they’re always the center of attention because they’re beautiful, they know how to dress like a lady and me? Well, awkward and plain. But I’m happy the way I am. Anyway, Bianca is also a runner (runner of problems) she couldn’t face them that’s why she kept on running away from them. I’m not gonna judge her for that, because I’m also like that and everyone else is. Don’t try to tell me that you are not a runner, who are you kidding? We all have that one problem or problems we just can’t face. Well, kudos to you if you did! Kudos also to Bianca, because as the story progressed, she finally stopped running away from them and she faced them, bravely.
Wesley Rush, on the other hand, is a jerk. Well, a hot and sexy jerk. I loved this boy, he made me swoon. Yes, he’s cocky, overly confident jerk. But this boy is funny as hell like Bianca. I so loved their banters.
What I loved about the way Kody wrote him is there’s a reason behind why his character is an asshole. He’s not just a bad boy, he’s not just a womanizer. There’s a heart breaking reason behind all of that. His character development was amazing, his development wasn’t rush (punintentionally lol). Like Bianca, he finally stopped running away from them and he faced his problems.
*swoooooooooooon*I also loved Bianca’s best friends, Casey and Jessica. They’re the best best friends in the whole world, Bianca is super lucky to have them. They are supportive and caring. They didn’t leave Bianca’s side even though Bianca pushed them away. What I would do just to have a friends like them.
All in all, it was an amazing and entertaining read. DUFF is about facing your horrible problems, learning from your mistakes and embracing the duff-ness.
