Last Little Blue Envelope

Ok, it was painfully obvious that with Keith paired up with Ellis, Ginny would end up with Oliver. Oliver the black-mailer. Oliver the fuckwad. Oliver who doesn't have ANYTHING to recommend him. Yes, he has the sob story at the end of the book, but NO. He sucks in a million ways and if you want me to believe him as a romantic figure, then you have to prove it. Johnson shows the growing attraction, but never sold it. I never fully believed in it, so when Oliver has a perfectly good reason for his douche-bag actions* and they kiss, all I could do was throw the book across the room. 

The fact that Ginny falls for him and his stupid act makes me really dislike Ginny. It ruined this book and the last book for me.

*And you know what? THAT'S NOT A GOOD REASON. You can work full time and go to uni part time. Uni fees for full time are only 3000GBP a year no matter where you go. They have student loans. You don't need to blackmail a girl out of her aunt's artwork (which, frankly, I think Ginny should have kept for herself instead of selling it and I think she wanted to.) BUT NO!
