This was so so much fun. I never had the whole roommate stuff, but then again I was 16 when I was done with highschool (different school systems, it depends on which direction to take, you are either done at 16, 17 or 18), and the college of my choice was only 15 minutes walk away from my parents house. Not that my parents would probably have let me go off in the big world at only 16. 😀
But I have always been amazed at the whole roommate thing, especially how it is done in America. I love to read books about girls going to college/university/whatever else, and go live in a dorm, or rent a house and live with a whole group of people. It is always great fun and I am really interested in it.
So I just had to get this book when I spotted it on Netgalley, and boy, I am so glad I did.
It is a book filled with illustrations, hilarious and meaningful quotes, quizzes, puzzles, and so much more. Every page brings something new.
The book is separated into parts, from parties to meeting your new roomie, to traditions, and more. I really loved how this was done, it wasn’t chaotic, and you could also easily just pick a part of the book if you weren’t interested in the other parts (though who wouldn’t, this book is so much fun you just want to devour it all).
I loved the quizzes, and I enjoyed doing them. I also loved the flowcharts. It was also fun that you could fill things in (not that I could, because tablet, but if people get the paperback/hardcover they could do it). So I just did the best thing, imagine myself filling them in. 🙂
I also loved how the book is designed, it is bright, colourful, with various fonts (the normal reading font is just one though, but I meant the text that you get when a new topic arises or the quotes). There are also a whole lot of fun, lovely, illustrations, which really complimented the book and gave it its charm.
All in all, this is a highly addictive, fun-filled, colourful book that I would highly recommend to everyone!
