I love how deeply this book was rooted in friendship and creating true, real, and very raw connections with others. I really enjoyed the first half as well as was very nervous for the characters in the second as things blew up to the point I wasn’t sure which way it would go. 

Beautiful story as a reminder that we do have a choice in the end and there is always another way if we allow ourselves to seek it. 🗝✨

Radio silence feels like a hug in 450+ pages - both radio silence and loveless had Asexuality as part of their themes but I found myself really drawn to radio silence. The depiction between the relationship between the characters is beautiful and you really feel for them. After reading a few books from Alice oseman’s universe I gotta say Aled is one of my favorite characters for sure. His story is very beautiful and poetic and his transcripts for his podcast feel ethereal- I was happy to read this that my little ace heart is bursting.

Man, this book was amazing...
SpoilerAs someone who struggled during university and ended up dropping out, I felt it in my soul. Your life's value isn't measured by how accomplished you are in life - if you are happy just working at a cafe or a normal job, then that's fine ❤️ Uni is not for everyone and it shouldn't be what you are forced or expected to do, honestly.
All that spoilery section aside, this book got me emotional so many times and woah, it's so easy to read! I exclusively listened to it and it only took me two or three days ✨💜

Alice continues to completely blow me away. This book was dark and felt with some rather heavy topics and yet I could not bring myself to put this book down. I was drawn to each and every character and the plot/subplots were interesting and just pulled me in fertiger and feather till suddenly I was at the end. 
I absolutely love the message and theme of this book. It’s one of Discovery, loss, and defying societal standards. 
Overall, such a spot on book.
