Synopsis: Phillip's sophomore year is off to a rough start. One of his best friends ditches him for a group of douchebags. His track coach singles him out for personalized, torturous training sessions. And his dad decides to clean out all of the emergency supplies from the basement, even though the world could end in disaster at any moment...and even though those supplies are all Phillip has left of his dead mom. Not that he wants to talk about that.But then Phillip meets Rebekah. Not only is she unconventionally hot and smart, but she has seriously great boobs. And she might like him back.As Phillip gets closer to Rebekah, he tries harder and harder to turn himself into the kind of person he thinks she wants him to be. But the question is, can he become that person? And does he really want to?

My thoughts

Cover:I really like this one.The cover i mean. Its simplicity and eye catching appeal drew me in.I like collage like covers.It seems like warmth is spreading.

Book: It was in my galley grab and i looked it it up. A YA debut so I thought''cool i'm so reading this for my DAC of 2012'' which is hosted by Kristi @ the story siren

First I have to say I know writing is hard work "cough"cough"my writing sucks"cough so far. Practice means perfect.Second I do not bash authors and only share my feelings in a polite and mannerly fashion.

The title is misleading! It's not a dystopian or apocalyptic but rather a contemp. I've started to love contemp. But EYNTSTA[acronym for Everything...need..apocalypse] was rather disappointing for me. But he that's me, i read gr8 reviews on goodreads, amazon and blogs. People differ.

It has religious/christian undertones. No biggie for me at all. But it was boring and long. I finished it.^_^. The characters did nothing for me; meaning i did not get to know them like ''real people''. Was a tad preachy ; that was a bit iffy i have to say.

I did not like the characters in EYNTSTA except Rebecca, the romantic interest.Who was likable.

Philip our protagonist. I did not like him at all. He acted like a real like teenage dude, a real life jerk. He was annoying at times.

And his friends; Mat and Asher. Did not know why they were buddies.They scold and humiliate each other.My dude friends hit each other till their fists turn red.[hurts] but not that.

The writing was likable and this is told in 1st person narrative.


Ok have to say he's funny


  1. I really dislike when I expect one type of book, and get another. I also dislike preachy books. But hey, at least you got a book for your Challenge!

  2. I'd have bought his book after that vid :D

  3. Too bad you didn't enjoy the book. You're right, I was expecting a dystopian book guess I missed it from the Galley Grab. Speaking of which, have you been getting the Galley Grab newsletters?

  4. Yeah, I thought it will be apocalyptic when I saw it on the galleygrab, that's why I downloaded it, but than I found out it's not & although I love contamporary, I decided not to read it. I guess I made the right choice ;) Thanks for the review!
