Hey all! Ariella here :) Welcome back to the Smart Girls Get What They Want Readalong! It's the third week now and things are getting better and more intense (as intense as they can get with a contemporary; 'cause we aren't killing anyone here) with every chapter. How are y'all holding up, anyways? I already went ahead and read all of it. HOW CAN YOU HOLD YOURSELF BACK? Maybe y'all are cheating and just following along. But anyways, let's get to the questions and get all your brains into action. Emily and Sara came before me and had a great set of questions. I don't know how I'll do because I'm not really the note-taking kind of reader, if you know what I mean? My questions probably suck, but hey, my brain is kinda short-wired haha.
1. What do you think of our protagonist, Gigi, now? Your opinion of her must have changed throughout the book.
A: I personally think Gigi is okay. I don't hate but I don't love her either. I admire her for sticking with her friends but there are some choices that she could've thought more about. I like how she joins the ski team with Bea even though she couldn't ski. She's a great best friend and I admire her for that.
2. Do you think this book is an accurate portrayal of how smart girls are treated at school? Any personal experiences or insights?
A: I'm considered a "smart girl" in my class but I think this book went a bit overboard. It might because my school is small and because of that, mostly everyone knows me. I wouldn't say I'm the outcast but most people just describe me as "smart" and "that bookworm". From this, I think any smart girl would consider stepping it up and making herself known as something else other than just the smart kid.
3. Will or Mike? And what do you think about how they've acted toward Gigi so far? List your reasons about who you like 'cause I wanna know! ;)
A: I'm going for Mike. Sorry for y'all that love Will but Mike is my sweetheart! Will has always felt off to me and kind of fake while Mike is trying his hardest to help Gigi and be charming towards her. Plus, who doesn't love a cute jock who's also a nerd? *sigh* I WANT ONE MYSELF :3
4. Any thoughts on Neerja and Justin?
A: I personally don't like the pairing. I think Henry would be good for Neerja because he's sweet. Honestly, I think Justin is too shallow.
5. What do you think about how the ski race turned out? Satisfied or no?
A: I think Gigi did the best she could and just went with her gut. The ending for chapter 20 was really cute and made my heart flutter just a bit :3
That's the end of my questions! I'm sorry; it probably sucked a lot compared to Emily and Sara's but it was the best I could do. I'm not really note-taking or analytic reader :( If there are things that you want to tell me about the book that I didn't ask about, feel free to spam the comments haha :)
My name's Ariella and I'm a 14 year old Canadian girl that loves to read. Everything began with a book called the Lightning Thief and from there I was hooked. I enjoy and read all kinds of genres but my favourites are paranormal and mythology. I love reading YA books but I love Middle Grade books as well. I also blog over at Secrets of Lost Words. You can usually find me crawling on twitter so feel free to contact me!
