Nerve - Jeanne Ryan

Vee doesn't know if she has the guts to play NERVE, an anonymous online game of dares. But whoever's behind the game knows exactly what she wants, enticing her with lust-worthy prizes and a sizzling-hot partner. With Ian on her team, it's easy to agree to another dare. And another. And another. At first, it's thrilling as the Watchers cheer them on to more dangerous challenges. But suddenly the game turns deadly. Will Vee and Ian risk their lives for the Grand Prize dare, or will they lose NERVE? (Goodreads)

It took me a while after buying this to read it. It was one of those impulse buys where I thought I would love it because it's dystopia and it has a nice cover. That was all that convinced me. 

And it was good. It was really angsty, and a few of the characters were unconvincing, but other than that, it was actually okay.

I think the only reason I decided to read it when I did was that I saw that the film had gone onto Netflix, so I wanted to read it before watching the film.

The Nerve was entertaining, and it did only take me a few days to read it. But it wasn't as good as I hoped. And I'm not even going to start on my rant about how the film is nothing like the book at all.

Overall all I can really say is that this book was okay. It's worth a read if you want something different but otherwise... I'm just glad it was short.
