Book Review: Virgin by Radhika Sanghani

~ Genre ~ New Adult, Contemporary

~ Blurb ~ 
Okay, I admit it…I didn’t do it.


This is normal, right?  I mean, just because everyone I know has talked like they’ve already done it doesn’t mean that they’re telling the truth…right?

It’s not like I’m asking for that much. I don’t need the perfect guy. I don’t need candlelight or roses. Honestly, I don’t even need a real bed.

The guys I know complain that girls are always looking for Mr. Right—do I have to wear a sign that says I’m only looking for Mr. Right Now?

Sooooo…anyone out there want sex? Anyone? Hello? Just for fun?

I am not going to die a virgin. One way or another I am going to make this happen.

Hey, what have I got to lose? Besides the obvious

I was given this ARC for an honest opinion via Netgalley.

~ My Review ~
This is Radhika Sanghani first book.

The author did a great job of the relationship/friendships between the three girls Emma (her college friend), Lara (her long time BFF), and Ellie. I loved how she portrayed them with all their idiosyncrasies and them all coming to terms and accepting themselves just as they are. Ellie’s humor and her vblog were hysterical. 

The scene after the last meeting with Jack reminds me of real life situations that happened to my friends and I at some point in our lives. Ellie was so real in her reaction to the situation. It was well written and believable.

My main problems were, this was written at a college character level and I had a hard time relating, also she spent too much time in the first half of the book saying over and over she was a virgin. Once she got into the girlfriends and their relationships she started showing her full potential as an author. 

I would like to read her future books as she continues to mature as a writer.
