You know when you watch a movie and the characters are just really bad at acting, and it almost hurts to watch it? Well that is what this book was like. The characters had no chemistry together, and their conversations always seemed awkward. Not like awkward as in embarrassing, but awkward as in I just met you and I don’t really know how to act around you yet”.
This was a New Adult romace-y type book, but the only thing giving that away is the age of the characters, and the sex, which by the way, was poorly written in my opinion. It honestly felt like I was reading a book intended for 10-13 year old kids, it was just very… basic? Boring? I could give you a while heap of synonyms but I don’t know how to describe it. The characters were so annoying as well. The main character (I can’t even remember the name of her) was so insecure and immature it wasn’t even funny. The main guy was alright in the sense that he wasn’t as immature as her, but really he should have run away while he could.
Also, another thing that really bugs me with romance books, the characters always go through some sort of development and then as soon as the smallest thing happens, the characters break up for a while and then they realise they can't live without the other so they get back together, without even fixing the issue that caused the break up in the first place! I've noticed a lot of NA books do this, and it really irritates me. Do the authors think that this is like a requirement of a decent NA book? Because it really isn't. And if you're going to do it, at least make the reason for the break up to be believable. Disagreeing with someone's opinion doesn't result in a break up, if it did there would be no couples out there at all. (That whole last paragraph probably made no sense sorry!)
I can’t even tell you what the story was about because I really wasn’t paying much attention, I just wanted it to be over with. I’m sure the storyline was good and cute, but I just couldn’t get past the writing of it, it was just terrible.
Definitely wouldn’t recommend this book, so save yourself the trouble and go read The Catastrophic History of You and Me instead.
Cover Rating: 9/10
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance ( I feel like they all mean the same thing anyway)
