    • As seen on The ReadventurerThis is another series conclusion that doesn't disappoint.Granted, the book started rather rocky for me. You see, Ruby now (finally) has a boyfriend after getting no proper action due to her uber-slut reputation. But the moment she gets him, our girl is back to her Jackson-time antics, meaning her guy is the most important part of her life, the epicenter of her existence. When things get difficult with him, she is back to her insecure self - being fake about her feelin [...]

    • Roo is back for the final instalment of the Ruby Oliver series. She and Noel are dating - yay, and everything seems to be going well apart from the fact that Nora is no longer speaking to her, then her Grandma dies and her dad is depressed and her mum is going through another food phase. And then Noel leaves for New York and nothing is the same after that.Real Live Boyfriends in the fourth book in the Ruby Oliver series by E.Lockhart. I was excited and hesitant when it came to reading this book, [...]

    • I'm going to be perfectly honest and just say it: I'm feeling very Reginald. I don't want to say good-bye to Ruby but at the same time, I almost don't want to see a fifth Ruby Oliver book. I'd like to think that Ruby has learned as much as she can possibly learn, has experienced all types of crazy scenarios and that in the future, although she is bound to still find herself in a mountain of debacles, she'll be able to persevere onward, facing them head-on, and tackle them with her vast knowledge [...]

    • Oh, Ruby Oliver. The Meghans of the (real and fictional) world just want you to be happy. I don't really know what else to tell you. I'm sad and I'm glad, and you are funny and kind, and your parents are crazy, and you are not, and the best thing about you is that every time I'm done with one of your books I know where you are at that exact point but I don't feel as though E. Lockhart has pinned you down in a place for the sake of a happy ending. Like, you could go anywhere from here. I don't kn [...]

    • I think I'm upgrading this whole series to a 5.I laughed. I cried (no really! Megan and the cake! and AHHH!!!! That's cryptic on purpose). I felt like Ruby was talking directly to me. These books are just a complete joy to read. Reading a book should feel like THIS. That magical wonderful can't-put-down, stay-up-past-bedtime, frenzy of words. (I might try to write a real review. But you shouldn't wait. Just read this series already)

    • I'm going to say this rating warrants a 3.75 stars only because I thought the ending was too abrupt and what Noel did and how he dealt with everything and everyone kind of shitty (even though it was defendable).This series was so good. If you're looking for a quick coming-of-age, chick-lit read, that makes you swoon and laugh but which also unnervingly contains wisdom through feminist messages and character developments, I would definitely recommend this series. At first, I thought that nothing [...]

    • Ruby finally won me over, guys. I don’t know if it was the fact Roo finally got a grip and smartened up a bit, or if it was because I was sick and vulnerable, or a combination thereof—but Real Live Boyfriends did it for me.In this, the final installment of the Ruby Oliver series, Roo thinks she has it all figured out. She is dating Noel, and he is behaving like a Real Live Boyfriend. He doesn’t magically fix everything that’s wrong in Ruby’s life, but they are together and they are hap [...]

    • Four days, four Ruby books. Not much sleep, loads of laughs and now I have a new favorite female lead who is far from perfect but definitely unforgetable. YA contemps/ chick lit need not be angst-filled, drama-ridden to be good. And while Ruby's stories are angst-filled and drama-ridden, hers are hilarious and painful and truthful and accurate.Reading Real Live Boyfriends: Yes. Boyfriends, Plural. If My Life Weren't Complicated, I Wouldn't Be Ruby Oliver is like the before and after of a rollerc [...]

    • *This mini review has also been posted on Tangled in PagesI have never felt so relieved to finish a series. I LOVED the series but I don't think I could have take another book of Ruby's neuroticness. Finishing this series makes me feel all grown up. With the end of Ruby's journey and the end of my own approaching, I cannot help but get a little nostalgic. Ruby was an incredible character and one I will miss but one I am glad got a happy ending. She is a character that most teenage girls can rela [...]

    • Review originally posted here.This book you guys, Lockhart was so, so mean with my heart - this is definitely the more "serious" one of the series (I mean, if you would call one of the Ruby Oliver books serious), Ruby is finally on the senior year and things get bad right from the start - this time around not just friends fights but also with hecr family. I don't want to tell much about it's plot, just my feels and I have to tells that at the end I did teared up a little bit because of feels, my [...]

    • While my experience with The Treasure Map of Boys was rather interesting, in that it managed to piss me the fuck off, it took all of three pages of this book to have me happy-sighing again. Ruby is back. Jackson is gone. Noby is a thing as in a thing thing as in a canon thing thing. LADIES REJOICE. And while the happy sigh quickly turned into an overall sense of everything is terrible why is everything terrible what did I ever do to you this is supposed to be A PAIN-FREE ZONE I WANTED THE OPPOSI [...]

    • Oh come on now!!Wow. So glad I finally bought this book. I think I waited so long because I borrowed all the other ones from Meg, and I guess I forgot that I could own them. For my own. And then it would just appear, bidden into my life. Like that.Anyway, to me this was a really pleasing way to pull together the tiny little Ruby series with a hundred things to say. A lot of the arc here is Ruby learning to get rid of a lot of her bad habits that help her not help herself cope, and personally I f [...]

    • Initial thoughts: I think the only part I'm sad about in finishing this novel is that I have to say goodbye to Ruby Oliver. Following her through this series was such a joy and I can consider E. Lockhart a new favorite author. This was one of the best series of its kind I had the pleasure of reading, and I honestly wish there were more books like this series in the YA spectrum today.Full review:The last Ruby Oliver book? Say it isn't so. :(If anyone wants to know the song that came to mind while [...]

    • To me, E. Lockhart’s books are the best of Teen Chick Lit– they are realistic without taking themselves too seriously, they are funny without sacrificing wit and without blithely avoiding the difficult problems that come with learning who you are, who you love, and what’s important to you, as some chick lit does. Over the course of these four novels, Ruby suffers a major falling out with friends, goes to therapy because she starts having panic attacks, gets a job at the zoo, sees lots of f [...]

    • i was excited to get an advance reader's copy of this book so early (it's not out till the end of the year), even with the new cover treatment. this fourth, and likely final, installmet of ruby oliver's boy chronicles does not disappoint. sigh. oh how i'll miss you, ruby oliver.

    • Original Source: bookdragonlair.wordpress/My synopsis: Senior year, Ruby is in a serious relationship, one more year and she can leave the Tate Universe forever – the thing to consider is… is she ready?Love is when you give someone else the power to destroy you and you trust them not to do it.I have to say, Real Live Boyfriends is a satisfying conclusion to the Ruby Oliver series. Bravo, E. Lockhart!By this fourth piece, the main cast of characters have gone through such growth – the chara [...]

    • This book felt a little superfluous in terms of romance, which is odd because technically it wraps up various things that started earlier in the series. Ruby comes out of it stronger, smarter, more self-assured with regards to boys and much less dependent on her relationship with Noel. We're talking about someone who compares her boyfriend to a flashlight in the darkness of her life in the third book, and her therapist says, paraphrasing, "That's an interesting metaphor. What happens if the flas [...]

    • *Just FYI: This review contains zero spoilers for any of the books in the series* Remember that time I read a complete series in a week? Yeah, that totally just happened right now! I started The Boyfriend List, the first Ruby Oliver book on December 9th and finished this one today, the 15th. Reading a complete series in a week can take some dedication, as well as some wiggle room in the review schedule. I would not have been able to complete this feat had the Ruby Oliver books not been so consis [...]

    • The review won't be just about this book, it will be about the entire series.I still like Ruby, with all her obsessing about boys. I like how she started to understand who her friends really are. She really matured during the course of the series. Of course there were some moments when she annoyed me, but overall she was OK. I'm primarily a romance reader and there were times when it bugged me that she couldn't settle on a guy and kept changing her opinions. But the confusion she felt was real s [...]

    • Can't wait! (But hope they fix the cover a bit)I was wavering a bit over my reaction to this one - it was a very enjoyable read, and I liked it a lot on the whole, but there were some things I was less happy about. Roo is as mixed up as ever, and it's as ever, largely in response to the people around her, who are pretty damn confusing. Noel goes from being her real live boyfriend to someone who doesn't call her, doesn't email her, doesn't want to talk to her. Hutch goes away to Paris. Kim and ev [...]

    • Honestly, I am so disappointed in how this series turned out. The first two books were great, but after that it went down. This last book was even worse than the third.I never really liked Ruby's mother. She is horrible. A horrible mother, a horrible wife. She doesn't treat her family good, she says nasty things to them, her crazy ideas are stupid, she annoyed me so much. Ruby's dad isn't much of a help either. He should have gone to therapy. This problem was solved, as many problems in this boo [...]

    • I never would have picked up this series if not for some glowing reviews from trusted friends; the titles don't appeal to me at all, and the summaries for each book tend to play up their quirky side in a way that could easily lead a potential reader to believe these books are shallow. They really aren't. While they are fun, and they are funny, E. Lockhart's real strength in this series is her ability to write characters--a main character in particular--in an emotionally authentic way. Ruby is a [...]

    • The titles of these books are all about boys, but they're really all about friendship. I don't know what I was expecting when I started this series, but what I got out of it was this:(view spoiler)[“Meghan pushed her chocolate cheesecake across the table to me. I hadn’t gotten paid yet for November, so I had only ordered coffee. “Here,” she said.“Don’t you want it?”“Sure I want it. I ordered it. But I’m giving it to you.”“Why?”Meghan stood up and got me a fork. “Remembe [...]

    • Reasons I enjoyed the Ruby Oliver Series1. Like Ruby I am a list maker2. While I am not a teenage girl, I have been a teenage girl & I thus could relate3. I do however have a teenage daughter who has much in common with Ruby so often it was often like getting glimpses into her mind4. I loved Ruby's parents- their relationship with each other & with Ruby was the highlight for me5. These books made me laugh out loudFact: I am sad that they are over.

    • I can hardly even review this right now-- beyond saying that I loved it, and Ruby, so much that I cried when I finished, I'm a little incoherent. If you like smart, funny books about smart, funny neurotic girls, or simply narrators so authentic they feel like friends, do yourself a favor and read these books. If you don't fall for them head over heels, then you're a stronger person than me.

    • If I ever find this in audiobook form I'm all for it but Ruby on the written page is too much for me. ***DNF so no rating
