Good afternoon Friends. It is good to see you all. It has been a while since I last did a book review. I’ve been so busy promoting Enticed my Love and with my German class. Recently I did a review swap with author Victoria Holmes. Her book, ‘Poptastic’ is the one I am sharing with you today.
Poptastic starts with our main protagonist, Julia, in a pub with her close friends in England. It is told in the third person and contains a few minor points of view.
Julia is sweet and cares about others. She often puts the needs of her friends in front of her own, creating tension within herself. Having been used in the past, she is cautious when it comes to settling down. Her strength is demonstrated a few times throughout the book. I applaud Julia’s braveness for stepping out of her comfort zone.
Julia’s best friend, Kit, is butch. She has a big heart and is always there for Julia. She cares deeply for all her friends and will make sacrifices because of her love for them.
There is one very annoying secondary character who tends to create tension between some of the players. She is untrustworthy, yet people keep feeding her information.
Julia’s group of friends are always there for each other, even when things get messy. The love shows in their actions. They are a fun bunch and provide deep character building.
One romance is one-sided, and you’ll find out why in the book. I loved reading about the other lovers’ demonstrations towards each other. I was hoping this one would have lasted longer.
The story is moderately paced and easy to follow along. There are page-turning moments that pull you into their world. Some graphic scenes show the intensity of Julia’s actions. I love that the author includes some poetry passages. It adds to the story and gives it a sophisticated feel. It took me about five hours to read.
I am recommending this novel to all.
