Virgin by Radhika Sanghani
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So I received this book from Net-Galley for an honest review.
I read the book, I am much older than Ellie, who is 21 and worried about still being a virgin. She is a college student and feels she is behind all her other friends in her sex life, everyone else is enjoying sex and one night stands and she is being left out. She really hates being a virgin.
Can I relate? Possible, as it can be difficult growing up and wondering what everyone else is doing and not being like everyone else.
As for this book, I thought it was interesting, I learned some stuff that I didn’t really need to know, and possible didn’t care to know. If you’re over 40 you have to keep an open mind about this book. Since this is a Young adult book, I think many young adults would understand it. I don’t think this is a good book for a high school age girls, but that is my opinion. I did give it a 4 star rating, as it was entertaining. I do rate this book as rated R.
What Goodreads says the book is about:
Okay, I admit it…I didn’t do it.
This is normal, right? I mean, just because everyone I know has talked like they’ve already done it doesn’t mean that they’re telling the truth…right?
It’s not like I’m asking for that much. I don’t need the perfect guy. I don’t need candlelight or roses. Honestly, I don’t even need a real bed.
The guys I know complain that girls are always looking for Mr. Right—do I have to wear a sign that says I’m only looking for Mr. Right Now?
Sooooo…anyone out there want sex? Anyone? Hello? Just for fun?
I am not going to die a virgin. One way or another I am going to make this happen.
Hey, what have I got to lose? Besides the obvious.
What Amazon has to say:
For those who grew up on Judy Blume—and graduated to Lena Dunham—a “hilarious”* debut...
“Bridget Jones and Carrie Bradshaw, meet your wisecracking, vagina obsessed match. Sanghani's debut is a hilarious, irreverent look at smart-alecky, painfully self-concious, 21-year-old Ellie's relentless mission to rectify a disasterous first attempt at performing oral sex, get deflowered, find the perfect Brazilian wax, avoid her tradition-bound Greek mother's nagging, graduate summa cum laude, be a writer, and fit in...This story for millennials is a wonderful blend of modern agnst with old-fashioned sweetness.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Even Bridget Jones’s Diary could take a page from this novel."—*Joan Rivers
