What made me pick this book up: 
This is another one of those that I picked up at half price books, the bright colors on the cover really caught my eye. 

What did I like about the cover: 
The colors. The artwork. The everything. Seriously. 

What made me read this book: 
I was really curious about this one. The synopsis doesn't give much away. So I had to know what this was about. 

Would I read the rest of the series/more from this author?

This artwork is stunning. The colors are bright and beautiful and super colorful. The art is adorable and almost... kawaii looking. If that makes sense. 

I actually really liked the characters. Lottie is very self obsessed, but it works for her. I feel like they're going to really turn her character around.

I liked her friends, they were very strongly written in the way Lottie sees them. One of them is adorable and has a ton of followers and goes to Japan and loves cats and the other is boring and forgettable. 

And then there's coolgirl. Who I really didn't think was all that cool. She was more just "meh" *shrug*.

Her ex-boyfriend is a total as*hat, and then there's Mister cop guy (Who I cannot for the life of me remember his name) and I really hope we get to see more of him, I really liked him. 

I think this one has a great pace. It's very even the whole time, it doesn't get slow, it doesn't seem to go by too fast. It's perfect.

This is about a fashion blogger who has terrible terrible allergies. She gets put on a new medication, and then meets this other fashion blogger she deems "coolgirl". She gives nicknames to all of her friends.
Well coolgirl takes her out to a bar (Lottie never goes to bars) and then something terrible happens.

The thing is, she doesn't know if it really happened or not.

This story is a mindtrip. You literally don't know what really happened or didn't happen the entire book. Is it real? Is it not? It's great.

What isn't great is THE MASSIVELY AWFUL CLIFFHANGER. I was taking a bath and I actually threw the book out of the tub and yelled "Son of a b--" my husband came in all startled.

So with that being said. Do not read this unless you have the second one, or don't mind cliffhangers. Don't do it. 

I liked this book so much more than I ever thought I would.
