Tellulah Darling

Tellulah Darling writes YA & New Adult romantic comedy because her first kiss sucked and she's compensating.

Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?

Avoids many of the "broken girl save me" pitfalls I despise

Lovely Vicious  - Sara Wolf

Going in to this story, I was worried that it was going to push all my buttons about "broken girls." And yet, I really enjoyed it. I think it was probably because Isis, while being highly traumatized from her past, turns it into anger and snark and a prickly defensiveness instead of waiting for the love of a good man to save her. In fact, the "good man" - Jack, is absolutely despised by her. I found that dynamic a lot of fun - it's a fav of mine - and so am really looking forward to the next book.
