Recommend A . . . book with a green cover

Graphic by  
(altered from Chick Loves Lit) “Recommend A…” will have a new prompt every week, which Shanyn will have posted ahead of time on the Recommend A… page. All you have to do is Recommend with Chick Loves Lit on Mondays, following the prompt, and link up so Shanyn (and everyone else) can see what you’ve recommended!

 This week's prompt:

a book with a green cover

Ruby Oliver, the neurotic, hyperverbal heroine of the The Boyfriend List, The Boy Book, and The Treasure Map of Boys, is back!

Ruby Oliver is in love. Or it would be love, if Noel, her real live boyfriend, would call her back. But Noel seems to have turned into a pod-robot lobotomy patient, and Ruby can’t figure out why.

Not only is her romantic life a shambles:
Her dad is eating nothing but Cheetos,
Her mother’s got a piglet head in the refrigerator,
Hutch has gone to Paris to play baguette air guitar,
Gideon shows up shirtless,
And the pygmy goat Robespierre is no help whatsoever.

Will Ruby ever control her panic attacks?
Will she ever understand boys?
Will she ever stop making lists?
(No to that last one.)

Roo has lost most of her friends. She’s lost her true love, more than once. She’s lost her grandmother, her job, her reputation, and possibly her mind. But she’s never lost her sense of humor. The Ruby Oliver books are the record of her survival.
(from Goodreads)

Real Live Boyfriends is book four of the Ruby Oliver series by E. Lockhart. This series is a lot of fun. Ruby is character that is easy to fall in love with, relatable, sarcastic, yet charming. Recommending book 4 is kind of a cheat because of course I want you all to read the entire series because I love it. 


  1. Hey, I approve of that use of green! I also should read these books as I call myself a contemporary fan. I've only read The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks (which was GREAT) - I think what's stopping me with these is that they are a series so I feel like I need to have them all before I start. Thanks for participating :)


Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment!
