Dusty Reads: The Boyfriend List (Ruby Oliver #1) by E. Lockhart

Dusty Reads is a weekly post featuring a book that has been sitting unread on my home shelf for some time.

Title: The Boyfriend List (Ruby Oliver #1)
Author: E. Lockhart
Pages: 229
Publication: September 26, 2006
Publisher: Ember
Summary taken from goodreads:
E. Lockhart’s spot-on dialogue and descriptions of painfully but hilariously relatable situations make this young adult novel an addictive read. Fifteen-year-old Ruby has had a rough ten days. During that time she:
  • lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list) 
  • lost her best friend (Kim) 
  • lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket) 
  • did something suspicious with a boy (#10) 
  • did something advanced with a boy (#15) 
  • had an argument with a boy (#14) 
  • had a panic attack 
  • lost a lacrosse game (she's the goalie) 
  • failed a math test (she'll make it up) 
  • hurt Meghan's feelings (even though they aren't really friends) 
  • became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch) 
  • had graffiti written about her in the girls' bathroom (who knows what was in the boys'!?!)
But don't worry—Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more lists.
I heard that this series was really cute and funny and I have the three out of the four books, so why haven't I read them yet??

Not to mention, they're all pretty short! 

Le sigh. College life makes it hard to want to read anything longer than 100 pages, lol.
