ARC Review: Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky !!!

Kill The Boy Band is one of the funniest books that I’ve read in quite a while. I adored the author’s writing style and can’t wait to read more books by her in the future. I honestly don’t know where to start with this review. The characters? The plot? The twist? Everything is hysterical and amazing. I know, I know, that’s not a true review. Okay, I’ll try my best to put this incredible book into words…Here I go!

Four friends: Sloane, Erin, Apple, and Isabel. Well, friends might not be the best word to describe them…They certainly aren’t a typical group of friends. They haven’t been friends since birth, they’ve rarely ever met in person, and…well…only one thing actually pulled them together- their love of the band, The Ruperts. You heard me, a band called The Ruperts, consisting of four guys named…what else…Rupert. No, I’m not joking. This is it.

Let’s be real here. We’ve all had our own fangirl obsession stages. Some of us have theSE stages longer than others, and hey, some of us still are Fangirls. But what would YOU do if your absolute favorite band was staying in the same hotel as you, and one of your friends accidentally knocked one of the band members unconscious? Would you call the police? Hotel management? Try to take care of him yourself? Or…kidnap him and take him to your room? Betcha didn’t see that one coming. Yes, kidnapping the band member was exactly what Sloane and her friends did.

But that’s not where this story ends- oh no, far from it. That is just the beginning- the tip of the iceberg if you will. You see, hidden inside of this book is also a rooftop kiss, a crazy “beard,” a murder, and a sex scandal.

Kill the Boy Band is one of those books that you can’t stop reading, because you NEED to know what happens next. It’s also the type of book that will make you cry from laughing because it’s just that absurd. The whole book is crazy. Absolutely crazy. But that’s what makes it fantastic! Also, near the end, you learn something about Sloane that challenges everything that you previously thought was true. It is a twist that you never see coming, until it hits you like a ton of bricks.

I highly recommend this book and give it 4.5/5stars.

  1. I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed this book! I’m kind of kicking myself now because I had this book and gave it away since I wasn’t sure I would like it. It sounds like such a fun read — I’ll probably check it out once it releases =)

  2. Hi Nori! I don’t know why but I found the title really hilarious. And that band name! This sounds like a fun, dark comedy read! I would definitely put this on my list!
    Also I have been tagged to do the The Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag and I am tagging you as well! Here is the link to my post for the questions: https://paperspensandperidot.wordpress.com/2016/02/05/the-secret-life-of-a-book-blogger-tag/
    Also, if you will be so kind to send me a link for your post (if you make one) so I can read your answers as well!

  3. HERE’S THE BOOK YOU SAID WAS SUPER GOOD. I am definitely holding your word to it. It does sound crazy, but I don’t think anything could beat Grasshopper Jungle crazy. So obviously I’m going to read this, and see if I like it or not 🙂 🙂

  4. This book seems wonderful! Fangirls, kidnapping, plot twists, and the hilarious-ness that ensures! I’d heard a little bit about it, but it needs to be on my TBR now. Great review Nori!

  5. For a book with such a blah cover, this is getting some awesome reviews. I heard it was funny but the whole angle with the boybands being so obviously “inspired” by real life (lol) and they’re all named Rupert… Plus 5/5 stars from four friends? Yeah call me intriiiiigued. I also just love the kind of books that hook you and this definitely seems like it’s going to keep me entertained from the start.

  6. YESSSSS so GLAD that you liked this one :). AND IT’S FUNNY TOO :D, double score! I literally cannot wait to read this book, it sounds fantastic. NOW I AM EVEN MORE EXCITED NORI 😀 😀 😀 :D!!! Great review, have a great day too :)!

    As someone who usually doesn’t read contemporary, I’m so glad you brought this book to my attention! With all the drama & tragedy that happens in most of the books I read, it would be really nice to have a little break to read something light and funny. Thanks, Nori! 🙂
