#BookReview: Top Ten by Katie Cotugno ‏via @cursedreader

About the Book:

Ryan McCullough and Gabby Hart are the unlikeliest of friends. Introverted, anxious Gabby would rather do literally anything than go to a party. Ryan is a star hockey player who can get any girl he wants—and does, frequently. But against all odds, they became not only friends, but each other’s favorite person. Now, as they face high school graduation, they can’t help but take a moment to reminisce and, in their signature tradition, make a top ten list—counting down the top ten moments of their friendship: 

10. Where to begin? Maybe the night we met.
9. Then there was our awkward phase.
8. When you were in love with me but never told me…
7. Those five months we stopped talking were the hardest of my life.
6. Through terrible fights…
5. And emotional makeups.
4. You were there for me when I got my heart broken.
3. …but at times, you were also the one breaking it.
2. Above all, you helped me make sense of the world.
1. Now, as we head off to college—how am I possibly going to live without you?

Notes and Opinions:  DNFed this one. I got this from Bfest last year and just got around to reading it.  I found that early on I didn't really care about the characters or what was going on.  This is one that flips back to the past and well for this one it just didn't work out. I really didn't care about the past that lead up to these two sleeping together and then getting into a fight. The writing was find I really think that this one was about the story. It just didnt grab me at all.
