Without it we probably never would've even heard of The Ruperts. One of the girls want to let him go. The other three, for reasons of their own, decide to keep him for a bit.
Those who've read this correct me if I'm wrong, but the main character's name is never specified. She adopts different aliases throughout the book, which I think adds another layer of complexity to the mystery. You never quite know if she's telling the truth. If the boys were involved in a scandal, we were at a breaking point. If they got haircuts, we were at a breaking point.
The girls all have distinct personalities, their own lives and goals. Isabel, the sharp-tongued blogger. Erin, the social butterfly. Apple, the sweet overweight girl who happens to be loaded.
See a Problem?
And of course, our elusive main character. I once read an article that analyzed the feminism of boy bands since they're primarily marketed towards women and give tweens a safe environment to explore their sexuality. Kill The Boy Band is like that. Artificial on the outside, but unexpectedly deep on the inside. View all 3 comments. Mar 26, Paige Illegal in 3 Countries rated it it was amazing Shelves: See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten! Readers never learn her real name; her friends never use it and she gives names from 80s movies like Sloane Peterson and Lydia Deetz when asked—and this girl is supposed to be the sane one of the bunch.
Girls love what they love for all sorts of reasons. Teenage girls love unlike any other group. Their kind of love is fierce and pure and terrifying and complicated. Moreso than perhaps any other racial-ethnic group, Asian women are expected to be slender and those kinds of expectations can cause a incredible number of body image issues. By simply being, Apple subverts those expectations. These are the small but effective ways intersectionality works and makes a huge difference for readers. I want to point you to this Twitter thread for another woman's views on Apple as an instance of poor representation of fat women.
As a woman who has always been skinny, I don't see her character the same way as a fat woman. Hollowell makes good points points and I'd be remiss as both a reader and a feminist not to acknowledge and think about that. Kill the Boy Band is utter madness in the form of a novel. People will always make fun of girls who love boy bands. This is the book that will make anyone smart fear and respect teenage girls, what they love, and what they will do to you if you push them to their breaking point.
Kill the Boy Band
For the love of teenage girls who love fiercely and almost scarily, read this book. I was holding someone captive and all that was going through my mind was a Billboard Top 40 love song. I was going to hell. Kill the Boy Band is about a group of girls who kidnap a boy band member, and it is simultaneously one of the weirdest and best books I have ever read. This book is a weird, action-packed journey that never loses its grip on you. Yes, it requires s I was holding someone captive and all that was going through my mind was a Billboard Top 40 love song.
Yes, it requires suspension of disbelief, but it's a parody novel. Some absurdity is to be expected.
Surprisingly, this book reaches moments of genuine emotion and sends some good messages. The unnamed main character has somewhat of a growth arc, which was fun. The characters are just the right amount of morally ambiguous and fucked up. I watched Breaking Bad. I know how to get rid of a body! Mainly though, Kill the Boy Band is just hilarious. Every moment made me laugh. There are well-done pop culture references and subtle situational comedy.
There's something about the way Goldy Moldavsky writes parody novels. It never feels like she's making fun of boy band fangirls or people who fight for social justice, even as she parodies them to hell and back. Part of her positive message comes from the fact that she writes from the point of view of an actual character inside that sect of people. That's what sets them apart. Highly recommended, along with this authors' spectacular No Good Deed.

Jan 19, Rose rated it liked it Shelves: This is one of those books that could go easily either way: I thought some moments were pure gold for dark comedy, and I was even laughing while I read this on my commutes. However, it had some issues pulling off the explanations for events. Plus, some moments in humored context didn't always work for me. I was totally stoked about this being a dark humored parody of fandom culture. Even the blurb suggests that a group of girls encountering the least popular member of a popular boyband The Ruperts, who you might as well say are a parody band of One Direction goes in an absolutely horrible - and unintended- direction.
I would say after the entire reading experience that the execution of this is made of both great things Dark humor can be difficult to execute well, because on one hand it has the potential to point out contradictions and ironies which yes, this book did in several notations , but at the same time it may unintentionally be offensive depending on how it's expanded upon. Some iconic one-liners with some self-aware critiques and examinations included. Libba Bray's "Beauty Queens" did this as well, but I think "Beauty Queens" went over better for me as a whole because it covered a lot of ground and I clicked with it a little more especially in Bray's own narration; that remains one of my favorite YA audio experiences.
That's not to say that I didn't identify in spaces with "Kill the Boy Band. Ye Gods, I've been a part of that culture for a long time, it's kind of fascinating being able to reminisce about it. His role in Moonchild with Gackt did not help dispel this theory back when I first watched the film in all its fandubbed glory. So, the protagonist of this book - who often takes on the moniker of several 80s referenced heroines - is a part of a group of girls who are obssessed with the Brit boy band "The Ruperts". One of them doesn't even really sing, he just juggles during their live performances.
They met on a reality show, a. I'll admit that made me laugh with some of the details given for the band and how the protagonist profiled each of her friends and their various stats within partaking with the fandom. Among the protagonist's friends are the curvy Chinese girl Apple Oh bless Apple's fangirl heart that she frequently wanted to jump the bones of the Rupert she liked the most during a good part of this book - though the overt sexual humor really surprised me in places , Isabel frequently curses in Spanish, she's Dominican , and Erin, the MC's best friend who has a really, really dark streak.
The four of them end up going to an exclusive event at the hotel which is rumored to be where the Ruperts are staying. Things go terribly wrong when Apple bumrushes one of the members of the band as he's at a vending machine, knocking him out. Then she proceeds to drag him back to the girls' hotel room, where things quickly get complicated, including tying up the Rupert so that he won't "panic" when he wakes up but of course he does , and things go downhill from there.
And that's exactly how it plays out, in an over the top manner, but while the narrative has some decidedly lighthearted moments and snappy one-liners, it gets dark very quickly. I still think and am a little sad that this book didn't quite go in more fun and open directions given its awesome premise, but it has moments where it shines.
I appreciated the bit references I could pull from, plus some of the banter between the girls and boys. I don't think there's really a single character that comes out of this scenario as likable because they're all inherently flawed and OTT. The way the book goes in terms of the plot including how one of the Ruperts ends up dead, but who didn't see that coming? I actually kind of appreciated the ending, because it's an interesting punctuation and notation to fandom writing culture.
I don't know if it really goes as far as it could have or is as keen as it put itself off to be, but I took it for what it was. Still, this left me on the fence for the experience. I definitely liked parts of it, but others I really wish I had more takeaway. Feb 28, Jeninne rated it did not like it. My book mark is on page Page 36 is as far as I could get in the six days I attempted to read this, which is five and a half more than I should have.
And in 36 pages this is all the negative shit that really rubbed me the wrong way: The author attempts to justify her character's actions by insisting that the boy band member in question, Rupert P. He's more than that. He's an ugly jerk. He should appreciate his fans. Also, he's so fucking ugly. Apple is a chubs. That's how she got her name.
Because she's a chubs who was eating an apple when her gacious American parents decided to adopt her. But she's a fat Asian. Mostly I just hate the way this book shits all over fandom, fans, and what is now a whole subculture of people and more mainstreme than it's ever been. This book doesn't understand satire. This book is nothing but disrespectful and irritating. I hated this book. It's just downright offensive. Don't buy this trash. I mean, it's such a great concept, in part because it's so relatable. We all know that one fangirl who takes things too far.
Maybe we've encountered them in real life. Maybe on a forum. Maybe on a review. And I'm sure we've all wondered what would happen if a fangirl took things too far. The unnamed narrator and her three friends are all fans of The Ruperts - a group that parodies many bands, but seems to be targeting One Direction in particular.
When they find out that the concert venue nearby is all sold out, they stake out the most expensive hotel betting that it's where the band is staying , hoping that if they can't score some tickets, they can at least take a few pictures of the band. You know, for posterity's sake. And then things go wrong. I liked the first half of the book a lot. Some of the observations about fandoms and what it means to be a fangirl were surprisingly deep.
Because when you think about it, what makes something popular isn't always synonymous with good or interesting, but just because it happens to fit in with the zeitgeist and people are using circulus in probando, or circular reasoning, to rationalize it it's popular because it's good. There's a pile-on effect when it comes to popularity Each of the narrator's friends expresses their devotion in different ways.
Isabel is really creepy, and probably the poster girl for what we think about when we think about out of control fangirls. She tweets threatening messages to the girlfriends and nay-sayers of the Ruperts, and runs a Perez Hilton-esque site about the Ruperts, sometimes using sketchy means in order to obtain new information and gossip. Apple is from the fanwank school of fangirls - her romantic obsession with The Ruperts falls somewhere between sweet, sad, and scary. She's also the character many readers have trouble with because she is overweight and this is portrayed as the butt of several jokes in the books, with Apple using her girth to knock someone unconscious, and constantly referring to food or how much she craves it.
She is the type of fan who would refer to a character as a book boyfriend, and go into uncomfortable detail about all the things she would like to do to him. Erin is a little more subtle. I felt like she was a lot like the narrator, pushier in some ways, quieter in others. You don't really find out what she's about until the second half of the book.
I liked the first half of the book a lot, but I felt like the second half tested my willingness to suspend my disbelief too much. It's difficult to write a dark comedy, because you have to push the envelope and people's comfort zones but also make them laugh, and I think this requires a level of subtlety and cleverness that is very difficult to master. It also appeals to a niche audience - most people don't like creepypasta in their comedy. One of the best examples of a dark comedy is the teen movie Jawbreaker. It's a fantastic look at the social strata of a high school - part makeover story, part revenge story, part murder story.
I can still remember the first time I watched it - there's nothing else like it. It wanted to be too many things, and this caused the plot to unravel, and the tight, obsessive narrative from the beginning disappeared into the chaos, never to return. I did keep reading because I wanted to find out "whodunnit" but the ending was really disappointing. I was expecting something clever and shocking and memorable! Instead, it ended just as I thought it would. View all 5 comments. Mar 13, Chelsea chelseadolling reads rated it really liked it. Honestly y'all this was so good.
Makes me want to go back to my prime 1D days on tumblr. If you're a One Direction fan this is so worth a read. Mar 28, Gabby rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I was not expecting to like this book as much as I did. This book had everything: This is one of the funniest books I've ever read. I laughed out loud several times. Once I was laughing so hard I couldn't ca "Boy band fangirls are a species that are more focused, determined, and powerful in large numbers than just about any other group of people I can think of. Once I was laughing so hard I couldn't catch my breath.
Maybe I just have a sick sense of humor, but this was hilarious. It's dark humor, but I appreciate it because dark humor is my favorite kind of humor if it's done right. I finished this book in one sitting because I physically couldn't stop reading it. I also think it's absolutely hysterical how this fictitious boy band "The Ruperts" is loosely based on the boy band One Direction.
I was never personally obsessed with One Direction, but I still think this is freaking hilarious. This book is kind of absurd and crazy, but in the best way. It follows a young 15 year old girl in New York when she stays at the same hotel as her favorite boy band intentionally of course with three of her closest friends. And then they kidnap one of the boys in the boy band, and from there the story takes off and gets more and more entertaining and hilarious with each chapter. I will totally admit that I used to be absolutely obsessed with the Jonas Brothers.
Nick Jonas was my entire life. I've never seen a book capture the essence of what it's like to be a hardcore fangirl on a day to day basis. These fangirls might seem crazy but that was me in high school, I totally get it. At that age it feels as if that boy band is your entire life, and at the time they were my entire life. I love how this book talks about how fun and exciting it is to be a fangirl. How you live through the internet and have gif wars with other fans and twitter and tumblr are your lifelines and you would wait hours in the rain just to get a glimpse of them or be in the same room as them.
I completely understand the feeling. It made me feel so nostalgic to be honest, and it reminded me of all the crazy things I used to do as a fangirl.
I haven't been a hardcore fangirl like this in years but reading this sent me right back to what it was like to have that fangirl state of mind. It became so suspenseful and intense and there were so many plot twists that I didn't see coming. The second half of this book reminded me of Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. These band members really show their true colors when they think they are alone. Like at the end when all the girls are hiding in the closet in their hotel room and they all act like they don't even like each other and care more about their careers than the fact that one of their band members just died.
I also love how it shows all the behind the scenes of what it's actually like to be in a boy band and how most of the boy band members are actually miserable and the fans are obsessed with the idea of them as opposed to who they actually are. It's a very real and interesting concept. I just loved the accuracy of what it's like to be a fangirl. I just loved this book so much.
It was hilarious and relatable and made me feel reminiscent of what it was like to be such a hardcore fangirl of a boy band. I don't regret that time of my life because I remember how happy they made me. Seeing your favorite boy band member in person is one of the most exciting things in the world when you are such a young girl. I love how this book really describes how powerful fangirls are, because it's true. Fangirls are like an army and they won't let anyone come between them and seeing their favorite band. I love when it says that the concert tickets sold out in 2.
I remember meeting Nick Jonas when I was 16 and it was the greatest day of my life and my heart was beating so fast and it was one of the happiest moments of my life. I still look back on that day with happiness. This book made me reflect on one of the happiest, craziest times of my life and I love it for that. Here is the photo from the day I met him: Seriously, writing about a fat character that has luggage full of food, chews on her hair in substitute of food, and is named after the food she was eating when he family was window shopping an orphanage just SCREAMS privilege.
I'm sick to death of authors allowing their privledge voices to bleed through their work. I'll never touch this book, or anything by this author. You can seriously kiss my fat, 1,calorie-diet ass. Mar 12, Poonam rated it liked it Shelves: The expectation of a light read was met but there were a few other bits which could have been better. The story talks about fan girls, their obsession with boy bands and the length they can go to be in the same vicinity as their object of obsession.
Take away the band, the lights, the fame, and the screaming girls, and they were just boys, chosen for us to obsess over. They can be unsure, immature and sometimes cruel. There are also the multiple problems these teenage fan girls go through. The story is told from the point of view of a very unreliable narrator and we don't know how much is true and how much is fake. Till the end we do not know the narrator's name and I found this and the way the story is narrated really interesting.
There is also a mystery which I did not expect view spoiler [ The kidnapped boy from the boy band is killed, there is unknown murderer and then the problem of the dead body hide spoiler ]. The thing is the mystery was just OK, it is a paraody and a few scenes made me chuckle but the story felt a bit dragged and could have been more fast-paced. View all 9 comments.

The four main characters are a band of strong young women. They also happen to be fangirls. It was so fun to read about their awesome and totally insane personalities as they obsessed over their favorite boy band, The Rupters. Things get a bit out of hand when they kidnap one of the boys and tie him up in a hotel.
These girls acted totally crazy, from stalking the boys online to writing fanficiton about them. And yet, I could understand This book is morbid, inappropriate, and completely hilarious. And yet, I could understand their side of things. The boys made them excited and gave them something to look forward to each day. I've never been obsessed with a boy band, but with books, oh yes… I used to write Percy Jackson fanfiction, look up fan art, and obsessively check the internet for new updates on the latest book.
So when it came to the girls' crazy antics, I could understand their motives. The writing was brilliant and I really look forward to reading more by this author. I think she articulately stated exactly what it's like to be a teenager: The author showed the power the media, celebrities, and the music industry have on people, especially teens. I mean, why do we all obsess over celebrities anyway? Movie stars, singers, models - they're made to look glittery and attractive under bright lights, meant to dazzle people.
But really they're no different from any of us. Or at the very least you should find it highly entertaining.
Soundless by Richelle Mead
Five stars This was a crazy ride, it hooked me in right away. Quite a few WTF moments and some things that had my jaw dropping. Some things were a little hard to suspend disbelief for but still entertaining nonetheless. There were quite a few moments where Obwas replaying them in my head and still laughing afterwards I almost considered playing hooky from work haha Some things about fandom were right on I remember reading tons of fanfic for the first two and trying to write fanfic with my one friend.
And recording 'So Weird's music on my boombox to listen to in my room. The ending of this I thought was fitting, it wrapped things up in a somewhat realistic bow and didn't try to make it a happy ending for everyone. I would recommend, hop on the crazy train and enjoy the ride: Fandom is an important part of the lives of many teens and it's cool for it to be reflected in the literature they're reading!
It's about 4 teens who are united in their love of a band called The Ruperts, who are basically a One Direction-y thing, born from a British reality TV competition and put together because they are all named Rupert. I can't decide how satirical this book is supposed to be and I don't think it can decide either? Because on one hand, the Ruperts are all pretty ridiculous, and so are the Strepurs fans of the Ruperts--it's Ruperts spelled backwards.
But also, our narrator, whose real name I don't think we ever actually know? Oct 14, Henz rated it liked it Shelves: I'm sure most fan girls will find this book ridiculous because it seems to generalize what fangirls think and do but really it's not. The writing is witty and I find myself laughing at how absurd the things these girls have to go through just to get to their favorite boy bands.
The darkness of this book is laced with humor, and the hilarity is almost disturbing because fans like these do exist. Their love for their idols started as innocent and then it turned out to be misguided, consuming and d I'm sure most fan girls will find this book ridiculous because it seems to generalize what fangirls think and do but really it's not.
Their love for their idols started as innocent and then it turned out to be misguided, consuming and dangerous. You know in South Korea these crazy fan girls are called " sasaeng ", they do all the extreme things fans do such as stalking their fave boy band's private lives, chasing their cars which can lead to accidents, hacking their personal accounts and just be where their idols are, they don't care whether it's a restroom or their bedroom, they just sneak in wherever they want, some would even try to hurt themselves to prove how committed they are or it can be the other way around and that's just scary and traumatizing for celebrities.
How many celebrities died because of fans like these? These are just to name a few known celebrities who were killed by their fan's obsession. I enjoyed this book and I recommend this if your looking for something dark and witty and refreshing. View all 7 comments.

Or more specifically, one band member, Rupert P. Really, what happens from there is hectic, and then it turns into a murder mystery. And the main character, who gives out fake names to everyone who questions her, like Sloane I'll be calling her Sloane from now on , is running around trying to reason with the girls about all of this, especially when things go from bad to worse. The dynamics between her and her best friend, Erin, changed throughout the novel as well. I think I'm just going to come out and say that I did see a couple of problematic issues in it which inspired my problematic issues discussion post!
I elaborated more in my post if you wanted to take a look for yourself. This review is just incredibly hard to write because I rather not spoil anything, it's really just better to go into Kill The Boy Band blind and read it for yourself. Overall, all I can say is that this was definitely an adventure , and I was not expecting it at all! I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Io personalmente ho sempre pensato che i cantanti e anche gli attori odiassero i fans, specialmente quelli pesanti che ti seguono dappertutto. Penso questo per il semplice fatto che se succedesse a me, di essere un personaggio pubblico e di essere costantemente seguito e fermato per chiedermi delle cose, darei di matto. Siamo umani dopo tutto. Devi sorridere, fare foto, firmare autografi e poi andartene molto gentilmente. Goldy Moldavsky ha diciamo scritto una storia che rompe questo tipo di stereotipo. Ti fa vedere come sono realmente le cose.
Questo credo che sia un libro adatto a ragazze giovani che fanno questo tipo di cose e non dico necessariamente rapire un membro di una band , ma fissarsi su un gruppo e basarci la propria vita. La gente era basita. Kill the boy band is hilarious, ridiculous and yet realistic take on fandom and modern boy bands fangirls. The moment I saw it, I wanted to read it.
This title and the cover are one of those that automatically draw attention. So, this is a story about four fangirls, our narrator and her three best friends Erin, Apple and Isabel, and how they met their favorite band The Ruperts. And being a die-hard fan, beside Kill the boy band is hilarious, ridiculous and yet realistic take on fandom and modern boy bands fangirls. And being a die-hard fan, besides obsessing and daydreaming about band boys, includes stalking, engaging in internet wars, writing fanfiction, going to as many shows as possible, stan wars, and obviously erm kidnapping.
I must admit I was never much of a fangirl. My highest fangirl moments include listening songs of my favorite band on repeat or watching interviews with them, and I was never into boy bands anyway. So, as you can see, I couldn't really relate to these girls, but with the way this book was written I could understand the allure of being part of such a community. The fun, the friendships, the sense of belonging, and the happiness. Maybe it was obsession, but it was also happiness; an escape from suckiness of everyday life. This book is filled with humor, OTT situations and pieces of truth about fandom and boy bands.
I had so many laugh out loud moments while reading it, and I laughed even when I probably should have not. Although that was not my case, I can understand why some people would find this kind of humor offending, but I would still recommend this book. There was so little logic to fandom. At the end, the only thing left was passion. I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
