It had a lot in it that I liked. Like cute moments. And I liked that the main character was unique in her tastes. 

But also exactly what I liked about this book, cute cliche moments, also made it feel played out and predictable. It never really had enough originality to make it memorable or elevated.

wow i think i’ve just found my new favourite comfort book gosh. it’s almost as if it was written for me. i’ve NEVER in my life seen myself so completely in a character like i did with libby. she and i are the same person.

I WAS SMILING so big the entire time while reading this, so in love. *sigh*
