Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all?
There is always a long list of books waiting to be read. If you’re telling me you’ve not … I don’t believe you.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is also my way of torturing myself over all the books that are being released into the world that I need to love and I don’t have enough hours in the day to read all the books that are out there in the world.
This week the book that I think we really all need to read is:
Loveless by Alice Oseman
Goodreads | Waterstones
Pub date: 9th July 2020
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?
This wise, warm and witty story of identity and self-acceptance sees Alice Oseman on towering form as Georgia and her friends discover that true love isn’t limited to romance.
I still haven’t read an Alice Oseman novel but I love Heartstopper and I really need to read one of her novels and soon. Does anyone have a recommendation as to which one I should read first?
