Virgin by Radhika Sanghani


Okay, I admit it…I didn’t do it.


This is normal, right?  I mean, just because everyone I know has talked like they’ve already done it doesn’t mean that they’re telling the truth…right?

It’s not like I’m asking for that much. I don’t need the perfect guy. I don’t need candlelight or roses. Honestly, I don’t even need a real bed.

The guys I know complain that girls are always looking for Mr. Right—do I have to wear a sign that says I’m only looking for Mr. Right Now?

Sooooo…anyone out there want sex? Anyone? Hello? Just for fun?

I am not going to die a virgin. One way or another I am going to make this happen.

Hey, what have I got to lose? Besides the obvious.

MrsNorthman's Review
3/5 Fangs

If I had to describe this book in one word......awkward.  And not in a funny, cute way like I was expecting.

Ellie is a 21 year old virgin that wants nothing more than to fit in.  Her first attempt at giving a "blow gift" went horribly wrong, she was flat out rejected by the only guy she asked to sleep with her and she's  had some mishaps with her personal grooming.  So, naturally she's a little scarred and apprehensive about sex.  It's hard to believe that her two best friends are so sexually experienced, one even claims to be a slut, and somehow Ellie hasn't been able to put herself out there and lose her "v-plates".  With college graduation quickly approaching, she sets out on a mission to find a guy to deflower her.  Not a guy to love her, just one that can get the job done.

Personally, I just didn't connect with Ellie.  She came off extremely immature and there was way too much talk about pubes.  The author was trying to take what could be a serious subject and make it comical, but I found myself embarrassed for Ellie more than anything, not laughing.
