Hello readers! I am beyond excited to be a part of the Harper Summer 2016 tour! These tour is organized by my fellow Maryland blogger, Hannah from The Irish Banana Review! It consists of 50 blogs and 50 books!
I was assigned Winning, and boy did I get lucky!
House of Cards meets Election in this wickedly entertaining story about an uber-ambitious high school junior.
Whoever said being nice would get you to the top?
Certainly not Alexandra Miles. She isn’t nice, but she’s more than skilled at playing the part. She floats through the halls of Spencer High, effortlessly orchestrating the actions of everyone around her, making people bend to her whim without even noticing they’re doing it. She is the queen of Spencer High—and it’s time to make it official.
Alexandra has a goal, you see—Homecoming Queen. Her ambitions are far grander than her small town will allow, but homecoming is just the first step to achieving total domination. So when peppy, popular Erin Hewett moves to town and seems to have a real shot at the crown, Alexandra has to take action.
With the help of her trusted friend Sam, she devises her most devious plot yet. She’ll introduce an unexpected third competitor in the mix, one whose meteoric rise—and devastating fall—will destroy Erin’s chances once and for all. Alexandra can run a scheme like this in her sleep. What could possibly go wrong?
Winning by Lara Deloza is an incredible, funny, diverse book that absolutely killed it in every possible way!
Three Reasons to Read Winning
1. The main character, Alexandra, is fabulous! She’s hilarious, whip-smart, and such a BITCH! Seriously, this girl is one conniving b-i-t-c-h! She always keeps you guessing as to what she’s gonna do or say next. You are going to hate her and love her at the same time!
2. The romance in it is swoony, shipable, and between two girls! It’s sooo rare to see a lesbian romance in books where LGBT+ isn’t a theme, and Winning did it perfectly! The relationship between these two girls (not saying who!) is adorable and will make your heart happy!
3. It will remind you of your favorite teen movies! Clueless, Mean Girls, Election, Heathers…Winning is like the book version of all those movies mashed together! Besides from the plot lines being similar, Winning has that teen movie feel that we all love so much.
Have I convinced you yet? I promise that you’re going to love it! You can preorder Winning here!
