Some secrets are too good to keep.

Tabitha might be the only girl in the history of the world who actually gets less popular when she gets hot. But her so-called friends say she’s changed, and they’ve dropped her flat.

Now Tab has no one to tell about the best and worst thing that has ever happened to her: Joe, who spills his most intimate secrets to her in their nightly online chats. Joe, whose touch is so electric, it makes Tab wonder if she could survive an actual kiss. Joe, who has Tabitha brimming with the restless energy of falling in love. Joe, who is someone else’s boyfriend.

Just when Tab is afraid she’ll burst from keeping the secret of Joe inside, she finds Life by Committee. The rules of LBC are simple: tell a secret, receive an assignment. Complete the assignment to keep your secret safe.

Tab likes it that the assignments push her to her limits, empowering her to live boldly and go further than she’d ever go on her own.

First of all, I would like to thank the publisher, Katherine Tegen Books for giving me an ARC of this book to review. Thank you so much! Really appreciate it! All right, now for my review.

opinion

I don’t even know why I tried with this one. I really don’t. Everything is just everywhere and I had no clue what was going on. And I actually tried to like this one, reading until the very last page despite my many groans and screams of anger and frustration and head banging and almost throwing my E-Reader at the fucking wall.

The whole concept of Life by Committee is stupid. The whole community is insane, the rules aren’t explained well and the assignments are so juvenile and stupid. They aren’t realistic nor do they support ‘living life to the fullest’. The characters suck, Joe is as interesting as a fucking toaster. Moreover, the romance is complete shit. Nothing about it explained. They’re just fucking together. What is this, Kindergarten where people bump into each other and are like, “We’re dating now.”

On top of this, the ending is dumb and pretty plain and kindergarten like.

However, the writing is all right. There’s nothing completely horrendous about it.

Life by Committee is not by any means a good, fun, enjoyable read. If anything, it’s dull, frustrating, and childish. Don’t read this book. It’s boring and nothing is explained.
