Sophomores and Other Oxymorons is the second installment to Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie. I loved the first one for many reasons. This one, I only liked. I didn’t find it as enjoyable as the first one. I think the writing is superb. David Lubar does a wonderful job with the wordplay and humor. But I feel like there was something a little lacking within this second installment.

I still really enjoyed all the characters. In fact, I think I like Scott even more within this book because since he has grown and he has learned from his Freshman year, he is more confident and I love that. I still adore Lee (and I am so glad that Scott isn’t embarrassed by her anymore!) and I really enjoy Wesley’s character.

My favorite parts of both of these books are the journal entries. They are funny, witty, and downright enjoyable! I loved that he continued to do this within this second installment. I’m glad that didn’t go away because the journal entries are the best!

Even with all of this that I like, the book itself just didn’t stand out to me. And for that reason, I rated this book 3 stars. I like the concept of it and I still enjoyed what I read, just not as much as I did with Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie. Will I continue to read David Lubar’s work? ABSOLUTELY!

 

Let’s talk about it!
