4 of 5 starsFirst Date was a fun, refreshing and delightful read I m a sucker for a celebrity guy ordinary girl pairing so when I saw the synopsis it instantly caught my interest I enjoyed it thoroughly especially the concept of reality TV show This is also a Christian book so there were parts that discusses about it but it wasn t really overly done so it s okay for you to read it even if you re not a Christian The writing was also good and fast paced so it was really an easy read The story cent [...]
First Date by Krista Mcgee I admit I went into First Date kind of reluctant and not sure if I would even like it Why Because me and contemporary novels never got along Okay, I guess I can t really say that seeing as I haven t read a contemporary in three years and have only read five books in the contemporary category in my life P So, this book was super awesome The characters were fun and super lovable I loved Kara She was my favorite Well, besides Addy and Johnathon of course I also loved the [...]
Its the bachelor but with high school students and it was wonderful This is the book i didnt know i needed in my life It was funny and dramatic and adorable Addy doesnt want to go on tv and compete to be the presidents sons prom date she just wants to go home but she cant so she s attempted to be eliminated but that doesnt work She tell Jonathon the bachelor that she doesnt want to be here and has all the sass and attitude in the world but he kept her As the competition goes on she makes a frien [...]
AAAAHHHHHH This book has made it to my top 5 favorite books Jesus was poured out in this book so strongly The fear of sharing the Gospel was on point and the burst of faith that God gives was explained perfectly I loved this book so much Addy was growing by the chapter It was awesome to watch Jonathan was just the cherry on top.
Not as good as The SelectionI really wanted to like this book And I did for most of it Till the character started getting self righteous and acting superior than everyone else Ugh I just couldn t stand her after awhile Her dialogue and attitude towards the end ruined the entire story for me Just no I m gonna make this short so that I can get to the real issues of the story The writing was fine nothing to rave about, but nothing terrible either It was mediocre, something unmemorable, but still go [...]
Swap The Selection s Prince Maxon for the President s son, a chance to marry a prince for a date to prom, you get First Date.A cute coming of age novel, First Date ticks all the boxes It s not too complex, doesn t delve too deeply past its YA borders, and manages to bring about characters who don t stick to your typical reality TV cliches I think I would have enjoyed it a little bit if i It didn t remind me so much of The Selection.ii The other contestants didn t fully embody every stereotype u [...]
I think I expected too much out of this book The summary sounded really interesting, and I was hoping I could relive how I felt when I was reading Meg Cabot s All American Girl I know the main storyline is different, but you know the thing with the President s son and all Made me hope for a bit romance and chemistry This book felt very amateur It was event after event and the author took no time to really develop the relationships gradually Characters were all very bland, even the President s s [...]
4.5 stars This book was so cute
its so good, I m going to review it on my blog.
First Date is a fun, engaging and sweet read with some thoughtful moments focusing on MC Addy s strongly held Christian faith 17 yo Addy, a junior at her Christian high school, has her plate pretty full with her studies, golf, and hanging with her characterific bff Lexi Addy doesn t focus on, or have much respect for, teen idols, reality tv, power shopping or other trendy stuff that would distract her from her goals getting good grades and getting into an Ivy League college So she is mystified w [...]
I hate to give a negative review because I really wanted to like this one It started off pretty well, but then it got way too hokey, and the little things I suspended disbelief about in the beginning turned too large to overlook view spoiler a foiled assassination plot Come on hide spoiler The book wasn t very well written, and the Christian element seemed forced I was embarrassed for the author during some parts of the book, and that is just not a good feeling when reading Overall, good concept [...]

I sometimes buy books without knowing what it s about just to put some variety on my bookshelves and yes, I m quite aware that this book hardly represent a rebellious change from my usual reads This is really not a far cry from say, an errant Stephen King novel in my shelf Nevertheless, Christian fiction have never been something that I go out of my way to buy I just haven t really had any mind blowingly good reads in this genre as of late.I initially liked the premise of this book Basically, th [...]
First Date Krista McGee SPOILER ALERT So I was walking through the library one day, looking for books to read, even though my library bag was already filled with novels of choice As I was scanning the spines, this book caught my eye Actually, it was the title, First Date, that grabbed my attention It sounded romantic and sweet So I of course had to look at it I read the summary on the back covered and it piqued my curiosity So I requested it I read all my other books first cuz, while it sounded [...]
One guy, a hundred girls, and one prom night Jonathan Jackson must choose between girls from across the country, to attend his senior prom, on a reality T.V show.Oh, did I mention that the guy is the President s son And the whole thing is derived from the story of Esther.Yes, please.Before getting a copy of this book I actually found Addy s friend Kara s first Which I m relieved I waited out for this book first I wouldn t have known the beginning of their friendship I loved the idea of this Howe [...]
This is an awesome read It s loosely based on Esther from the Bible, but set it today s world, with reality tv, paparazzi, the internet and Addy is such a relatable character You can t help but root for her Fellow reality show contestant Kara is a great source of comedy and strength for Addy during their time on the show and the other characters add so much to the story I loved the comedic elements to the story as well Simply put this book made me smile, which as stressed as I am at the moment [...]
I really liked this book, but not as much as I thought I would I really, really loved the Anomaly trilogy, I thought since this book was by the same author, I would love it the same way I didn t, but it s still one of the better books I ve read I think the reasons I didn t like it as much, are mianly because it s kind of predictable, and some of the characters are really annoying Anna Grace, Lila, Hank until kinda towards the end, but I m not gonna give any spoilers etc Clean rating 100% clean.
I had an opportunity to read this book before it came out thanks to an author friend of mine This is such an adorable book I enjoyed it from beginning to end I even read it in one sitting This book made my heart pound out of my chest It is released on January 10, 2012 and I recommend every woman go out and get herself a copy of this book when it s released
Had the opportunity to read an arc of this delightful book It s a fun, modern twist on the story of Esther with characters that are easy to fall in love with A perfect choice for teen girls who enjoy contemporary fiction and a little Cinderella in their story.
I really enjoyed this book To me, it was a Christian non Royal version of The Selection series, by Kiera Cass
A Quickie ReviewA fun story featuring a likable heroine and plenty of teen drama Fans of Christian young adult fiction will definitely like this.Score 4 5
snickers Ooh, I knew this one was going to be corny but even for Christian romance it outdoes itself Clever Certainly Believable Not at all.
Another book by the author ofAnomaly So first of all, loved it this book I mean it seemed kind of clich d and I couldn t help casting my mind back to America and The Selection, but it was lovely Plot The plot was amazing and I couldn t put the book down but I wanted something else I wanted a book that wasn t always centered on the main character s good side I wanted to see Addy s flaws, something that would make me think twice before liking her But no All I got was, Addy was the perfect one for [...]
A modern retelling of the Biblical story of Esther.
I thought this book was going to have a really fun teen Bachelor esque vibe to it Instead, it mostly focused on our main character and her internal debate about whether or not to tell the people around her that she s Christian Which be honest, I don t really understand the dilemma especially when she s reading her Bible out where everyone can see She also has an internal struggle about not being able to date someone who s not Christian Here s the thing, I grew up in a very religious household an [...]
I have just recently been introduced to Krista McGee s books, but I am decidedly a fan Her characters are well developed and I love that in every book she s written so far she has taken a Biblical story and presented it in a modern setting They re not straight up re tellings, but it s not hard to see where she draws the inspiration from In Right Where I Belong it was the story of Ruth, and in First Date it s the book of Esther on display.Addy Davidson is a normal high school sopho She likes rout [...]

Let me start this by saying that this greatly remind me of the The Bacheloror likely a teen version of it, wherein the girls compete in all different kinds of competition from talent to intellectual I ve had this book for quite awhile now and didn t find the time to read it until the last few days ago.Addy Davidson may be the last girl in the world who wants to star on a reality show to win a date from the president s son She has important things to do such as focusing on her studies so she ca [...]
