Comments Confessions of a Hater

  • Sarah McC

    (The copy I read is an ARC sent to me from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review. Ha. They lose again.)So, truly, I only apply to receive ARCs that I think that I will enjoy, or at least will find interesting. Confessions of a Hater is a YA debut novel for Crane. I have never read any of her adult works, but this one sounded interesting. It’s about a teenage girl, Hailey, who moves (with her parents) the summer between her freshman and sophomore years of high school. At her old scho [...]

    Me, as I'm looking through the book store: Oh wow! This book has such a pretty cover. *reads the blurb* And it looks interesting too. Let's buy it!I still find the cover pretty but the story?HELL NO. This plot was so full of clichés it made me want to vomit. An unpopular girl who moves to a new town, goes through a makeover and start hanging out with the cool crowd? Check! A cooler, cuter older sister who ignores the little one? Check! A girl who got pregnant? Check! A mean queen-bee, obssessed [...]

    I can put together an outfit without getting laughed at when I roam the halls among the fashonistas and the trashionistas (the girls who majorly slut it up.)Because if you put your ear up really close to the girls that are extra mean, you can actually hear their daddy issues. Oh, what a difference a hug would have made. (Except for the girls who got too much hugging from their daddies, but that's a whole other issue.)Yeah, I don't fucking think so.

    Pages Read: 11Reason for DNF:Either you'll think this book is hilarious or you'll find it stupid and offensive. I fall into that later camp. In eleven pages, there were terrible jokes, slut-shaming, fat-shaming, cliches, and racism. I'm done. Also, I just checked out the last couple of pages, and the main character is still brand conscious and constantly commenting on people's attractiveness like that's all that matters. This is just SO not a book for me.

    When Hailey Harper's family moves cross-country before her sophomore year, Hailey decides she's been given a chance to re-invent herself when it comes to her social station within the world of high school. Aided by her older sister's hand-me-down clothes and a journal called How to Be a Hater, Hailey seems ready to take her Southern California high school by storm and find her niche among the popular and famous.But Hailey finds the popular crowd isn't all she thought it was and after a day or tw [...]

    Dear everyone at Square Fish/Macmillan,There is NO SUCH THING as a "seize fire." It is "cease fire." CEASE. As in end. Homonyms matter. Editors matter.Sincerely,Everyone who reads.After finishing the book: it's a vapid story about terrible people treating each other terribly. No redeeming qualities. I will absolutely not be adding this one to my school library.


  • Pretty in Fiction

    Confessions of a Hater by Caprice Crane is seriously funny. A must read for anyone who loved Mean Girls! But it's so much more than a book about girl fights and backstabbing.I was very impressed with Crane's ability to weave an incredibly funny story with such serious issues. This book dealt with everything from bullying (obviously) to divorce, teen pregnancy and drug addiction. It showed that everyone—nerd, popular girl, jock, or parent—is flawed in their own ways. Everyone makes mistakes a [...]

    As Hailey Harper is packing for move from New York to California, she comes across her older, popular sister's diary entitled, "How to Be a Hater." Hailey uses her sister's tips to give herself a makeover as she enters her new high school, only to discover she has no interest in being friends with the popular kids. As she forms real friendships with other girls who are usually invisible, Hailey decides to use her sister's diary to beat the popular girls at their own game.It was a way less good v [...]


  • Juhina

    Confessions of a Hater is another book I picked up without knowing much about other than it being a contemporary. I have to say, while the synopsis sounds like a fun read, I didn't know how much I'll enjoy it or if the main protagonist will be another shallow one I can't stand. However the progression of the plot line as well as the main protagonist actually having a guilty conscious, made this book very enjoyable and resulted in minimal frustration from such a topic. Hailey Harper has always be [...]

    "They say nothing brings two people together like a common enemy, but they never tell you what brings two common enemies together." Hailey is a nerd, a nobody, a loser and she wants things to change. Her father receives a job of a lifetime and decides to move his family to Hollywood.(eye roll, snort, sigh)Going through her sisters things that she no longer wants, she takes her clothes and finds a journal. Sweet baby jesus!! It's a how to be a hater journal. Just what she needs to be a typical as [...]


  • Glittery Mango (Ealee)

    I LOVED this book. I just don't understand how a book can be so hilarious, so stupid, so cheesy, so good, so touching, and contain so much teenage angst and who knows what, and still be this amazing. Hailey is the character I love, because in an alternate dimensional way, she reminds me of me. She did some incredibly stupid stuff that I want to slap her, but I can't slap her for it because unlike other characters I have read from other books, instead of wallowing in guilt and squeaking out apolo [...]


  • Freda Mans-Labianca

    OMG, so funny!Seriously, I was laughing out loud at times. Of course, there was some serious moments too, and even a couple of sad ones. All-in-all, it made for one great story! We can all relate to high school and wanting to fit in somewhere. This story is a cute look at that part of life and all of its' clichés, but with a twist. The author, Caprice Crane, is so talented. The story flows with fast with the ease of her writing. She teaches a valuable bully lesson in the story too. It had a ton [...]


  • Roxanne

    I am still not sure how I feel about this one. It dealt with a lot of heavy issues some of them in a great way others not so much. This is first ya book I felt a little old or not connected, I just couldn't relate. Most likely because I don't remember high school being like that, or maybe I was so unconcerned I just didn't see that type of stuff.

    ~1/5[Read more at my blog, Geeky Reading!]A review copy was provided by Cuddlebuggery's Little Blogger, Big Ambitions project. Thank you!Warning: Contains mass rage, and some spoilers.I really wanted to like this book. I requested it thinking that I would enjoy it, that it sounded good. Then it started sounding like maybe it would be more annoying, angst mean girls, but I tried staying optimistic. I went in hoping that it would be quirky and funny, and that maybe it would surprise me. And I star [...]

    From zero to hero?; 3.5 starsWhen I saw on NetGalley that Caprice Crane had written a YA novel, I decided to request an advance copy for review. I’d read and enjoyed some of Crane’s adult novels, so I was prepared to like this book, too. And I did, although there were a few things about it that didn’t quite work for me.Confessions of a Hater is the story of Hailey Harper, who feels like an invisible loser at her high school. She gets a chance to reinvent herself, though, when she finds her [...]


  • Stephanie

    First, I got to read this book through NetGalley, a site that offers early digital access to educators, reviewers, and media, so a big thanks to Netgalley. I get to devour countless books this way. Lucky me~High-school sophomore and self-proclaimed loser Hailey gets a chance at a new start when her family moves across the country and she discovers her older (popular) sister's abandoned diary while packing up. Hailey uses the diary's sage/harsh advice to transform herself - her eating habits, her [...]


  • Candace

    I gotta say, I was all over the place with my feelings regarding this book. Hopefully I can explain it all fairly well.I like Hailey, most of the time. I think when she's being herself she's okay. At times she was even great, especially when she first made her new friends, but through much of the book she's trying too hard to be something she's not. However, this is where room for growth is allowed, and Hailey did grow. I can't say I loved her, even at the end, but I liked her fairly well. She h [...]

    While packing in preparation for a cross-country move, Hailey Harper finds a journal that belonged to her older and more popular sister, Noel. The journal, titled “How to Be a Hater,” is filled with all kinds of information and advice about how to be popular, and Hailey decides that now is a good time to reinvent herself. Armed with the journal and Noel’s cast-off (but still more fashionable than Hailey’s) clothes, Hailey becomes one of the in-crowd at her new school within a matter of h [...]


  • Natasha

    Confessions of a Hater had some funny and entertaining moments for sure, but it was almost TOO much. I realize it's fiction so it doesn't have to be realistic, but there were so many opportunities for the author to take the story in a better direction and she just didn't. It got a little ridiculous - the BitchBook prank wasn't even good, and the author spends so much time trying to explain it that my eyes just started to glaze over. After all the trouble that Hailey causes I doubt she would do s [...]

    Hailey was never the popular girl in school (far from it), but as her family moves to Hollywood she finds her sister's journal with tips on How to be a Hater. Using her sister's journal, and old wardrobe, she decides to reinvent herself for Hollywood and become one of the popular. That lasts all of five minutes when she gets an up close taste of how awful these popular girls are. That's when Hailey and several other outcasts, who call themselves The Invisibles decide to use the journal as a conf [...]


  • Katie

    This book was so good!! I saw this on BookOutlet and was immediately attracted to the over, because it looks like a comic book, and I thought that was really neat. Then I read the title, and I was hooked! I'm a very cynical and sarcastic person, so I definitely felt like this book was speaking to me. So I bought and read it almost as soon as it came in the mail! And I loved it!!If you liked the movie Mean Girls, you will enjoy this book. It sounds kind of typical, a girl takes down the popular g [...]


  • Ben Phillip

    I honestly have no clue why I read this book as it was not gear for my demographic. I guess the power of an awesome cover tends to prevail. The story itself tended to be believable at the beginning with the classic tale of an outsider trying to reinvent themselves in a new surrounding. I could follow along pretty well. I was a little taken back during the second half of the book when the F-bombs began to fly freely and the story took a left turn into outlandish territory. I was also taken aback [...]


  • Kelly Hager

    There are no words for how I feel about this book. There are some valuable lessons inside, but you'll be too busy laughing to notice them at first.I absolutely loved Hailey. If she were real and my age, we would be best friends. She's so smart and funny, she's definitely a worthy successor to the Veronicas (Sawyer and Mars). I love that she manages to become popular but then realize that she was better off before. (That's not a spoiler; it happens early on.) And I love that she forms her own cli [...]


  • Sarah W.

    I was sucked into this otherwise-rather-vapid story by Crane's consistent teenage voice. Unfortunately, it became way too try-hard, but it was bearable throughout the novel. That isn't to say I didn't skim a whole lot; most of her tangents were insufferable. I had to sigh every time she went to those parenthetical add-ons. Still, the teenage idioms were forgivable when one remembers she is trying to portray a teenaged girl with all her mood swings and off-track thoughts. The plot was extremely t [...]


  • Marilyn

    I had high hopes for this one being about how to deal with bullying in a funny, positive way. In reality, it teaches you how to deal with haters by hating back. Ugh. Lots of language, a totally unnecessary oral sex scene, and a lot of hating.


  • Ilinalta

    It was okay. Didn't really like it. But it was fun and entertaining. Just not my type of novel. It felt like a retelling of mean girls. Very predictable.


  • Teri

    At best, this is the story of mean girls. At worst, it'll be a constant reminder of why you hated high school.


  • Kim Pocock

    Not life changing, but I enjoyed it!


  • Andreana

    One of the best YA books I've read! 4.5 stars


  • Chelsea Connell

    I dnf'd about halfway through this book. Before finishing the first three chapters, I know I wasn't going to like it, but the more problematic it got, the more I wanted to read it- if only for the purpose of writing a well-informed, complete review on it. However, once the love interest made a joke about autism, I had to stop. What I noticed right away was the immaturity of the writing. Immature writers create immature characters. Multiple times, characters un-ironically say things like "Totes a [...]
