Book Review: Virgin

Title Virgin

Author Radhika Sanghani

Release Date August 5, 2014

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.

This book was awesome. Radhika touches on subjects that every girl wonders about (from masturbation to pubic hair to technique), but no one else seems willing to go anywhere near. Not only does she talk about everything that's on a virgin girl's mind (and let's be honest, even those of us that aren't virgins anymore certainly still deal with these things), but she does it with an honesty and humor that I absolutely adored.

I loved that Radhika took a positive outlook on sex. It's great to see a book about sex where there's no slut shaming or guilt about wanting to have sex. Ellie is a strong, independent woman and she wants to have sex. Good for her!

To top it all off, I loved the story. I think the characters were brilliantly done. While a woman may not relate to everything in Ellie's life, it's safe to say that you'll be able to find *something* to relate to. As for the actual story, it was perfect. I loved that it stayed true to real life and wasn't all rainbows and butterflies. Yes, I certainly enjoy those stories, but I find more realistic stories to be especially enjoyable.

I think it's safe to say that I recommend Virgin. It's a wonderfully funny and relatable story.


5 out of 5 stars
