Stupid Cupid by Rhonda Stapleton
Stupid Cupid is a fabulously funny novel that I simply adored. Sure, it doesn’t have a ton of depth or the best of writing, but it does have three main characters that I ( and other teens) can relate easily to and a premise that was an interesting take off of 'cupid' making this a fun read for teen girls everywhere.
Anyway, getting back to the main characters. Felicity, Andy, and Maya were all girls that were definitely not stereotypical and had several different layers to them that made you enjoy reading about them. My favorite out of the three would probably by Felicity, even though in real life I'm more of Maya, because I loved how Rhonda didn't make her the typical skinny semi bitchy girl you could have seen with her character, instead having her be normal sized one who was not only hilarious, but had a heart of gold when it came to wanting the best for friends. And talking about friends, it was nice to see what strong of a friendship the girls had and how they never would let a boy get in between them.
Further more, I loved, LOVED, the premise! Since, it was so cool to see how Felicity’s job worked and how her matches ended up turning out after the two week spell was over. Plus, as Chelsea at The Page Flipper mentioned in review, I really liked how Stupid Cupid didn't deal with the main character finding love, but Felicity instead finding love for her friend. It was a really cute idea and it showed even more how far Felicity would go to make her friends be the happiest they can be. Though, I do hope Felicity finds her prince charming, over the next two novels. Yep, TWO MORE! =)
Overall, Stupid Cupid is a book you should definitely pick up come December. I really can't wait to see where Rhonda takes Felicity next, because these books have major potential to get even more fabulous as time goes on.
