Good hello, friends! Happy review day! I was think of doing a WWW Wednesday, but I realized I didn’t really have much to update on my reading for you guys since posting my TBR. Only thing I have is that decided to add Nevernight and Godgrave by Jay Kristoff to my TBR to get ready for the last book release that’s just next month!! Anyways! Let’s just jump into it!
My Lame Synopsis: Alice works in the library (great job!) during the summer to pay for rent. Living on your own ain’t easy especially if the start of summer your girlfriend and roommate dumps you from not understanding you. Then Takumi starts at the library. Goodreads

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Let’s start with I liked about it first. What a great group of friends between Alice, Ryan and Essie! I have one best friend that I joke is my sister from another mother. Also, more so now than ever before I understand the whole the family you pick versus the family who gets picked for you. Some of my favourite moments in the book were between Alice and Ryan.
I so respect and empathize with Alice’s struggle with her sexuality. I adore her personal growth and her journey throughout the book; a true sign of courage is being yourself unapologetically. I appreciate what I learned about asexuality from this book and Alice.
Now for the things I didn’t like. I felt the writing was a little awkward and more than once took me out of the story. I felt the sentence structure could have been more fluid and natural. Additionally, Alice was just a little too whiny sometimes, which made me more annoyed than sympathetic.
As always, thanks for reading!
