Mates, Dates series by Cathy Hopkins books 3-4


Mates, Dates and Designer Divas
Cathy Hopkins
★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆
Synopsis from Goodreads-

"Trust me to go and fall for someone who lives on the other side of the planet."
Nesta has met the perfect boy: good-looking, fun, sweet. But there are problems, too. Simon's from a rich, upper-class background -- with a lifestyle to match -- and it's difficult for Nesta to keep up. And then there's Simon's friend Cressida. What can Nesta do to compete with the ultimate Designer Diva?

Well, it seems all the MCs are clones. No individuality whatsoever. Pathetic. While easy to read and kill time with, it was immature and annoying and I just don't care about any of these characters. They're all exactly the same.


Mates, Dates and Sleepover Secrets
Cathy Hopkins
★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Synopsis from Goodreads-

"How can a new girl fit in?"
He talked, I listened. As I tried to appear interested, I thought that even Mojo was more interested in what I had to say. And he's a dog."

Theresa Joanne (T. J. to her friends) is having a difficult year. First her best friend moves away. Then there's the problem with boys: They never seem to notice that she's a girl. But when Lucy befriends T. J., things start to look up. But will Lucy's best friends Nesta and Izzie accept her and let her into their world of sleepovers, secrets, laughter, and advice?


Not only did they add another clone to the pack of parrot girls, there was a disgusting homophobic slur used as a joke. TJ was a horrible, annoying person. I had absolutely no pity for her.
