I recently recommended this to a goodreads friend who is also a good friend IRL and noticed I hadn’t reviewed it. I feel like I need to do so now, just in case she chooses to read it, so that she doesn’t think I’m insane.
Beautiful Disaster is… It’s bad. It’s horrible. It’s not particularly well written. The plot is just absurd. I mean, RIDICULOUS. I don’t have words to adequately express how unrealistic and stupid the plot of this book is. I summarized this book to my mom and she looked at me like I was wasting my life. If you’ve read this book and also enjoy embarrassing yourself, try summarizing it out loud to someone who hasn’t read it.
The relationships are toxic and borderline abusive. It’s full to the brim with tropes. Seriously, every trope you can think of, it’s here- bad boy, absentee parents, insta-love, stupid nicknames, cave man hero, virgin. It’s got them all. It’s bad. This book is bad.
You know what else it is though? It’s entertaining as all get out. It’s like going to a baseball game and looking forward to ordering those prepackaged nachos with the orange processed cheese. You know it’s bad for you. You know it’s disgusting and full of chemicals. You know you shouldn’t eat it. But it’s delicious and it’s baseball and sometimes you’re in the mood for something bad for you while you watch America’s game.
