So if you don't know, Alice Oseman's Radio Silence is my favourite book of all time. That made me really excited for this book. And I overall really enjoyed it.
The book is told in a duel-perspec ...more
4 / 5 ~ I reaaaally enjoyed this book.
Alice Oseman has a way of writing characters that feel so real and relatable in so many different ways. This book is no exception. Excuse the poor quality of this review, there's not much to say other than plain truths:
- I loved how she dealt with fandom, the good, the bad, the misunderstood parts of it.
- The characters, once again, felt incredibly real. I loved some more than others, and often my favourites were secondary characters (Lester, my man...) but ...more
Internet friends meet in real life. Sound familiar, fangirls ? Yeah I thought so .

Amazing how everything can change within the space of a few hours
I haven’t felt this related since Eliza and Her Monsters and boy oh boy I mean internet friends became real life friend is me. I’ve met my facebook friend almost 2 years ago and things has been great. I hang out with her more than I hang out with my friends at the university. We ...more
I was sent an ARC copy of the book by the publisher HarperCollins, thank you so much for sending it to me!
This was one of my most anticipated releases of the year, with Radio Silence being one of my all time favourite contemporaries. I was a little hesitant going into it as I saw it was centred on a boyband which I'm usually not interested in, but I trusted Alice to deliver and I was totally right to do so. I think Radio Silence will always be my favourite and have a special place in my heart, ...more

my heart... shit, i hope these babies will be okay, i really do
« We’re not in the real world anymore »
What I liked :
— the diversity. Alice Oseman makes us meet with a Muslim teenage girl, a Christian gay trans boy, a black straight guy and two bisexual characters (boy and girl). I particularly liked the fact that the bisexual characters were not represented as sex addicts. There’s always this stereotype of bi people having sex with everyone, or cheating their p ...more
I generally really enjoyed this book! It wasn't quite as good as Radio Silence in my opinion, that one is still my favourite of Alice's!
But the book was still really well written! She's such a talented author
What I liked about this book:
- Hijabi main character, half indian main character, Nigerian supporting characters (poc all around!)
- Bisexual, trans male, and Gay characters
- Great portrayal of anxiety
- Alice just writes such great characters that just feel so real
- I love how the char ...more

I was born for this
Gods, Alice Oseman just keeps getting better and better with every book. I mean, Radio Silence will probably forever be my favorite of her books because it felt like my book soulmate, but this book? Beautiful. I wish I could send all my love to Alice. You know when fans say "You should be grateful to *insert author's name here* for writing this book because it's their gift!" every time someone criticizes their favorite author's writing? I always ro ...more
