Summary:  Just know from the start that it wasn’t supposed to go like this. All we wanted was to get near them. That’s why we got a room in the hotel where they were staying.

We were not planning to kidnap one of them. Especially not the most useless one. But we had him—his room key, his cell phone, and his secrets.

We were not planning on what happened next.

We swear.

From thrilling new talent Goldy Moldavsky comes a pitch-black, hiarlious take on fandom and the badass girls who have the power to make—or break—the people we call “celebrities.”


I  am in love with this book. Everything about the book was amazing, starting with the beautiful end covers to the amazing plot. It was a really fast-paced read that kept me entertained throughout.

Kill the Boy Band is actually one of those books where you can't say much about it without giving too much away, so I will try to give my thoughts about the book without mentioning some spoilers.

Kill the Boy Band is about these group of fangirls who met through their mutual obsession with this very popular boy band, The Rupert. What started as a simple plan to get tickets from the boys, turned into a whirlwind of problems when the girls "accidentally" kidnapped one of the Ruperts (the least popular one, if I may say so myself). 

The four girls, Erin, Isabel, Apple and Sloane, cannot be anymore different. Each girls represent the different types of fangirls. There is the scary one, the quiet fangirl (ahem me), the perky, active one and lastly, the subtle fangirl who does not try to hide it. If you are a fangirl, you would definitely relate to one of these girls.

I would have given this book a higher rating if it weren't for the ending and how unrealistic it is. I don't know what I could say about the ending without giving much away, but just know that I wasn't very happy with it.  Besides some issues I have with it, I still enjoy it.

Kill the Boy Band is a dark and hilarious contemporary that any fangirl would relate to and if that is not enough reason to get it, just look at the book. The cover might be plain, but the actual book is so gorgeous that it cannot be decribed in words!
