Well, it’s the first official day of the book swap I am participating in and I received Loveless by Alice Oseman as my first book to read through and annotate.
Now, I do not know A LOT about this book but I do know that Alice Oseman’s books (Heartstopper) have taken off via their series the past few months. For those of you that don’t know, here is a quick summary of the book via Goodreads:
It was all sinking in. I’d never had a crush on anyone. No boys, no girls, not a single person I had ever met. What did that mean?
Georgia has never been in love, never kissed anyone, never even had a crush – but as a fanfic-obsessed romantic she’s sure she’ll find her person one day.
As she starts university with her best friends, Pip and Jason, in a whole new town far from home, Georgia’s ready to find romance, and with her outgoing roommate on her side and a place in the Shakespeare Society, her ‘teenage dream’ is in sight.
But when her romance plan wreaks havoc amongst her friends, Georgia ends up in her own comedy of errors, and she starts to question why love seems so easy for other people but not for her. With new terms thrown at her – asexual, aromantic – Georgia is more uncertain about her feelings than ever.
Is she destined to remain loveless? Or has she been looking for the wrong thing all along?
For this swap I will be swapping books 2 more times going forward through September. There are 4 people in my group total and throughout the following months we will be swap books, round robin style, and annotating each other’s books! I am so excited to read what is written in my book and even more excited to meet my group mates at the end of all this at a “mixer” that is being held for all of the groups. This is an event that I am very interested in being involved in and I look forward to seeing how it plays out as this is possibly something I would like to host myself!
