Pressestimmen

"Reading Never Have I Ever is a bit like reliving your most awkward moments -- but in the best way, because this time, the cringeworthy moments are happening to someone else. Anyone who's ever swooned over a boy whose name she didn't even know or overanalyzed a text message from a crush will see herself in Katie Heaney. You'll relate to her frustrations and admire her confidence, and probably wish she was your best friend."—Rachel Bertsche, New York Times bestselling author of MWF SEEKING BFF

"Katie Heaney is so hilariously fun to read that you may not notice right away how insightful she is about friendship, romance, and the essential weirdness of human relationships." Emily Gould, author of And The Heart Says Whatever

"I challenge any reader to not feel like one of Katie Heaney's closest girlfriends as she examines, in the most charming, honest, original and amusing way imaginable, how she's managed to never have a date. But don't let the breezy language or topic fool you-this is also a brilliant examination of what it means to be a friend, a girl and a human being. The first guy to take Heaney out will be very lucky; in the meantime, we her readers are the lucky ones."Anna David, New York Times bestselling author of Party Girl and Falling For Me

"No one has ever captured the angst and frustration of crushes as perfectly and humorously as Katie Heaney. Anyone who has ever fallen in love with a cute stranger on a train, on the street, in class, or at work, will instantly identify with it, and laugh and cringe along with her dating misadventures. But what is most admirable and impressive about this book is how unflinchingly Katie is able to examine herself. As hilariously cutting as she is when describing the male objects of her desire, she's also self-deprecating and introspective. And the book manages to point towards another (oft overlooked) great love in a woman's life: that of her friends."—Chiara Atik, Author of Modern Dating: A Field Guide.

Astute and tremendously witty, Never Have I Ever chronicles the romantic travails (well, almost romantic) of the very funny Katie Heaney. At some points, I actually got tears in my eyes from laughing too hard—Rebecca Harrington, author of Penelope

"Katie's writing is hilarious, and warm, and thoughtful, and reading this book is like having a little version of her to hang out with. What's that, Miniature Paper Katie? You don't like the bath??"—Edith Zimmerman, founder of TheHairpin.com

"Every twentysomething woman will relate to at least one of the disastrous attempts at courtship in this memoir. And then she'll want to buy copies for all of her girlfriends so they can discuss it over a few glasses (bottles?) of wine at book club."—Library Journal

"Katie's prose illustrates her life events by letting the voice in her head reveal all. Everything that ever crossed your mind while you were with your friends and crushes will echo back to you as you read about moments like a messy kiss with Eric or the feeling of helplessness when finding out that a friend of the opposite sex likes you and you just are not ready for that kind of information."—HelloGiggles

"Never Have I Ever is a strikingly profound and brilliant memoir that presents on-point observations about growing up, friendship and the confusing world of dating. Katie writes with such ease and skill that it's hard not to become completely wrapped up in her many relatable adventures. Her wit and intelligence effortlessly place her amongst today's great writers, and readers will be left thinking, "Finally, someone gets it." If you're a fan of Mindy Kaling, the New Adult genre or are simply looking for your next great read, Never Have I Ever is the book for you."—RT Book Reviews

Kurzbeschreibung

"I've been single for my entire life. Not one boyfriend. Not one short-term dating situation. Not one person with whom I regularly hung out and kissed on the face."

So begins Katie Heaney's memoir of her years spent looking for love, but never quite finding it. By age 25, equipped with a college degree, a load of friends, and a happy family life, she still has never had a boyfriend...and she's barely even been on a second date.

Throughout this laugh-out-loud funny book, you will meet Katie's loyal group of girlfriends, including flirtatious and outgoing Rylee, the wild child to Katie's shrinking violet, as well as a whole roster of Katie's ill-fated crushes. And you will get to know Katie herself -- a smart, modern heroine relaying truths about everything from the subtleties of a Facebook message exchange to the fact that "Everybody who works in a coffee shop is at least a little bit hot."

Funny, relatable, and inspiring, this is a memoir for anyone who has ever struggled to find love, but has also had a lot of fun in the process.

Im Laufe des Buches wird sich Jeder in der ein oder anderen Situation wieder erkennen und beim Lesen zustimmend vor sich hinnicken. Egal ob es darum geht, die Körpergröße von Stars zu googeln oder um den wirklichen Sinn des Spiels Never have I ever. Zumindest ging es mir so! Ich habe selten so gelacht wie bei den witzigen Geschichten der Autorin und ihr Schreibstil ist so amüsant und ehrlich, dass man bei den Geschichten selber gerne dabei gewesen wäre. Sehr empfehlenswert!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Funny, intimate and honest. 14. Januar 2014
Von BookGeek - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Katie Heaney has never had a boyfriend. Never has she ever. She's a virgin, she's inexperienced and she is in her mid 20s. This is the hook of "Never Have I Ever" and it sticks through out the memoir, but it's about so much more. It's about a girl, a teenager and now a young woman trying to navigate a world where she seems to be the lone fish in the pond.

Katie (yes, I feel comfortable calling her Katie, because I have basically read her journal and that definitely puts us on a first name standing), outlines her life and how it relates to boys. I don't think we as women realize how tuned into the opposite sex we are. Our stories from grad school into adulthood and beyond chronicles adventures of getting boyfriends. Really think about it. Really think about it, from Sweet Valley High, to Pride & Prejudice to Eat Pray Love, these books take us on different adventures, and follows females figuring out who and what they are and want to be and ends with them falling in love.

That is what our society has set up for us, so imagine being twenty-five years old and never really falling in love. Never having a long term commitment. Never having sex or any kind of prospect for marriage. What does that make you?

Katie takes us deep into her psyche. We get sections of her journals, her funny retelling of her most embarrassing moments and she bravely tells us about the times that she cried. It starts off ridiculous and so true with first crushes on Jonathan Taylor Thomas (right! Didn't we all love us some JTT) to the crushes who ignored her and the crushes she ran away from. This first section is charming and adorable, because I think we all remember the days of kindergarten boyfriends, fifth grade loves of our lives and the boys who were more interested in video games than girls, but we were all interested in them.

Then it gets adult, and we see how little Katie understands about the opposite sex and what it takes to gain their favor. I think a lot of us, especially the inexperienced us, have turned our crushes and love interests into false gods. The times we know very little about them and have already built our entire romantic futures and married lives on a single hello or a polite smile.

What I think the true heart of this story is not Katie and her misadventures with the opposite sex, but her friendships. The book starts with a description of what makes her different from her best friend and as the book progresses, we meet that best friend and we watch that relationship grow. More, we see how normal, happy and legitimately OK you can be without male attention. That while you may seem like a fish out water and while you may wonder "what the hell is wrong with me?" You know that nothing really is.

I picked this up, because like Katie, Never Have I Ever. I wanted to read it, because I was amazed to discover there is someone out in the world who understands what it's like to be 25 with little to no experience. I read my ARC just as I was turning 25 and Katie Heaney's sharp wit, adorable retellings and honest vulnerability helped combat the "I'm a freak of nature" depressed feelings on my birthday last week.

Still, I believe this is a book that everyone can enjoy. It's not just to say to inexperienced girls "you are not alone" or to preach chastity or something to experiened girls. This is just one girls story. And Katie Heaney is funny, smart and so unbelievably honest about things the rest of us would have kept hidden as a dirty little secret. She's brave and I recommend her book, highly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great read on an elusive topic 1. April 2014
Von Shannon Kelley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Heaney has, with intense detail, written about the proud and few of us who somehow missed life's romantic relationship train. She writes with honesty and determination, and, as far as I'm concerned, correctly identifies us as Bermuda Triangles. We are not boring or dull women; we are not weird (at least, no more than the typical Lighthouse) or repulsive. We haven't done anything wrong, but still find ourselves lacking experiences that 'should' have happened a long time ago. She wonderfully explores this issue through the lenses of her own life and reminds us that we may be riddles to be solved, but we are not problems to be fixed.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Had potential but missed the mark 10. Juli 2014
Von Danielle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When I saw this book, I thought that the premise was quite interesting. Usually people would be so embarrassed to not have been in a serious relationship by the age of 25, so I was curious what Katie would have to say. I was sorely disappointed. I had a really hard time I started this book at the end of March and I finished the book at the beginning of July. That's not usually the sign of a good book.

The book was essentially reading someone's diary. She spent a long time covering her grade school crushes. But that was not really that interesting because every little girl's diary entries talk about loving this boy in class or that cute celebrity. She talks about crushing on Jonathan Taylor Thomas in the 90's, which I can relate to because I was obsessed with him during sixth grade. It was just harder to get into that because if I wanted to read about silly school-girl crushes, I could dig out my own diaries.

The book progress through Katie's misses with guys through high school, college, and grad school. She goes on dates with guys but nothing progress very far. I don't quite understand, though, because she says she wants to find a romantic relationship but she seems get scared when the prospect might become a reality. She also seems to believe that the guy is supposed to read her mind that she's interested in him. She seems to want life to be a big romantic comedy and it just doesn't work that way. I just didn't see any progress from Katie from elementary school to age 25. At the end of the book she still is saying "boys" instead of men. If you're in your 20's, the male gender are men, not boys.

She said a couple of funny things but it just wasn't enough and I ended up skimming the last 40 or so pages. I wish the book had been better because it had potential to be pretty good. I wouldn't recommend this one.

The author tries really hard to be clever on ever page and nails it at least 3 different times. Basically to cut to the chase, she's seen way too many Nicholas Sparks movies. She clearly wants to not be single (or at least claims that) but doesn't want to take any emotional risks.

If I could talk to her I'd tell her the following.

1. The reason people date when there's not an instant spark is that some times it's awkward meeting new people and you want to see if they get less awkward with time.
2. If you think you can skip bad relationships by not dating in your early 20's you are incorrect. They're either gonna be bad or good depending on the people.
3. No one's gonna see you from across the room and want to kiss you in the rain. It's not because you're not pretty and you don't deserve that it's because life isn't a movie.

1.0 von 5 Sternen horrible i swear someone is paying these people to leave nice reviews everywhere 7. Februar 2014
Von Monet K. St Louis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Honestly - i was VERY disappointed in this book. I figured - noting the title - that this would be a funny story about a girl who was a shut-in nerd (like me) who has never been on a date before, or had a boyfriend,(...like me too- although at 22 not proud of it). again LIKE THE TITLE STATES. But no. This was a 'memoir' or a 'biography' of the author (who i have never heard before). She is i believe 26 and has never had a real boyfriend before....that may be true, but she has been on many a dates, and made out with quite a few guys, and had several relationships with men that - if i had a friend spending that much time with a guy i would think they were dating. She was pretty much boy crazy from age 5 by the sounds of the story, and sounded like one of the crazy girls in high school who had her locker smeared with her at-the-moment-celebrity-crush and would ramble on and on and on (like she did in the book) about who ever she was IN LOVE with at the moment.

It was overall a very boring book, with crude language, and in my opinion horrible friends that are probably laughing at her right now for publishing this book. Overall this was a very disappointing book for me, seeing as i had pre-ordered the ebook on and was super excited to read it. oh well... guess its not just the pretty covers that i have to watch out for now, its the catchy titles too :D
