So I have so many books that I read before I started blogging, and I love rereading them. To make myself less guilty about rereading a favorite, I decided I would start to do some reread reviews of these books if I haven’t already reviewed them on the blog.

Tired of the beauty-pageant circuit, Virginia Sauter tosses her tiara, pierces her nose, and auditions for the most unlikely of roles — drum major of the high school marching band.
Virginia wins, but is forced to share the title with Drew, whose family has held the position for generations. Sure, Drew is hot, but because of his superior attitude, he and Virginia are constantly arguing. That is, until they share more than just their half-time salute…
But as the drum major’s heated competition turns to sizzling romance, explosive rumors threaten everything — including the band’s success. Love seemed to be a sure hit, but Virginia and Drew may be marching straight into disaster.
This was my first Jennifer Echols book – I picked up Major Crush off the “New YA” shelf back in 2007, and boy am I happy I did, as I have been completely sold on her books ever since then and have bought every book on their release dates.
Major Crush by Jennifer Echols is one of those all around awesome, adorable reads. The plot is so lighthearted and fun that you can’t help but to the swept up into it. I am a total band geek so I loved the whole band focus of Major Crush.
I really love the characters. Virginia is so spunky, Drew is quite the hunk, and Allison is just a really great friend. Mr. Rush is pretty funny pretty much every time he shows up in the book.
This is a must read for anyone who loves a good romantic comedy! Fun and charming, Drew and Virginia will make you fall for their story on about page 2. A wonderful book :)
