Virgin by Radhika Sanghani ~ Book Review

Book Synopsis:

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.

Purchase a copy on Amazon.

As debut novel from Radhika Sanghani I am really impressed. It was well written story with the characters being well developed. With all that said I really wasn't able to 100% like the main character, Ellie. I found her immature and self-centered, it was all about her and her life problems. Ellie's biggest problem was being a virgin at the age of twenty-one. Is that really the end of the world? Maybe when you are twenty-one it is a big deal but I don't think it really should consume that much of your thoughts and actions.

This novel was a light and funny. I did laugh out loud a lot throughout this book. It is a very fast read and before you know it the story is over and ended a lot differently then I thought it was heading. This story follows Ellie around while she is discovering herself and losing her virginity or her v-plates.

I am sure there are some people who are lost in this subject and they may totally relate to Ellie. I didn't really relate to her while I was growing up but I did enjoy following Ellie on her journey. I look forward to reading more from Radhika Sanghani in the future as this book had a lot of humour and wit throughout! I would recommend it to Young Adults to read as it does have a lot of advice for young women. Sanghani touches this subject with little fear and has fun all the while. It is nice to see about book about what some young woman may fear when is college.

I give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
