If you know me you know I love Rainbow Rowell. She is hands down my favorite contemporary author. I just adore the way she writes. Now I’ve never read one of her adult novels before but I really enjoyed it. It didn’t quite have that major crisis build up and coming of age drama but it was still great.
The major reason I loved this book is because of the conversations between Beth and Jennifer. They talk just like me and my friends and I swear we are them in 5 years. They had me laughing out loud while I was reading this and I could not put it down.
That being said the reason this book lost half a star is because of the stalkerish premise. It’s cute and a little creepy at the same time and I just felt like the end didn’t quite work out cute enough. I didn’t love the way they came together at the end. I still loved the and thought it was hilarious but I felt like it had to lose some pints there.
I will say I enjoyed Beth and Jennifer’s chapters way more than Lincolns. At the beginning Lincoln is so sad. He hates his job, doesn’t have a lot of friends, is still pining over his ex and lives at home. But once he starts getting his act together and enjoying life his chapters get way more enjoyable.
Like I said I really enjoyed this book, despite the slightly stalkerish vibe at times. I mean is it weird how they “meet”? Yes. But it will be a good story to tell their kids one day. But it’s the writing style that made me love this book. I don’t think there’s anything Rainbow Rowell could write that I wouldn’t love. I just ordered Landline so hopefully I can finish off her published works and she’ll have something new for us soon!
Thanks for Reading!
