Lucky Number Four By Amanda Jason {Review}


Pandora Ann Phillips' life is just normal-crazy

Her mom's a psychic, her dad's mom is a snob, her mom's parental units are "too down to earth" and her best friends are newlyweds. Okay, so her best friends being newlyweds isn't really abnormal, but living with them in a cramped two-bedroom apartment definitely is. Sex, sex, sex is totally on their minds. Actually it's not only on their minds, but it's on the kitchen table, couch, on top of the washer...well, you get the picture.

Being a celibate (not by choice, mind you) full-time college student, and an almost full-time barista, Pandora can't afford to lose anymore sleep. So, she seeks out a new place to lay her head. Enter three "drool worthy" male models that are looking for a fourth roommate and they want her...and won't take no for an answer.

Hilarity ensues as Pandora's life turns completely upside down, and she begins to wonder if it will ever be the same again!

  My Review
  
Lucky Number Four was a really fun read but I have to admit that it didn't blow my mind.At the beginning,it was really interesting and I couldn't wait to keep reading and find out more things about the characters.And yes...I couldn't stop thinking about Dora the explorer.I mean...come on.

I talked about her name so I might as well talk about her as well.She was a nice character with a low self esteem that always complained.And I'm not even kidding.The plot was okay but I think the author could have handled it better.I also didn't like the paranormal element.It was unrealistic and simply didn't fit in the story.

Even though I had some issues with the book,I couldn't stop reading it and I can say that I enjoyed it.It was beautifully written and read it in less than a day.The thing that annoyed me on a higher level was the main character who always complained and felt unworthy.She was a really funny and nice character but the fact that she always talked about how average she was kinda overshadowed her personality.I loved the other characters.They were so funny and the relationship between all of them was amazing.

And I wasn't a big fan of the ending but at the same time I was.It might seem a bit weird but seriously.The ending was a bit rushed but at the same time satisfying and really cute.I don't know if you can describe the ending of a book cute but...whatever.

I think that if you take out all the things you didn't like and concentrate on the things you did like,this can turn into a more than great read.It was really enjoyable and the writing was amazing.Sometimes,the book was funny,went from funny to dramatic,from dramatic to lame,from lame to interesting and back again.That's how I would describe it.

Overall,this was a good read,not great but not bad either.I really wanted to love it but unfortunately,I didn't.At least as much as I hoped I would.It was a light and in my opinion quick read.I don't know if I would recommend it or not...I think it's worth reading,even if you end up no liking it.
