    The writing, I’m in love with it. Is so beautiful and the story? YESSS.

    This book really shows that sometimes everything happens for a reason and maybe not in the circumstances or way that we expected, but still it happens and it might not end the way we want but afterwards, we find out it was for the best and you would want it to change.

    =>Arthur, I love him. His personality is so great and how he doesn’t full around and just goes with it is really refreshing and I highlight every chapter of his POV, it was just so, so awesome.

    =>Ben, I love him too, he’s such a great character and the development that he has in the course of this book was just amazing and I really like how his vision about the universe change and why.

    =>Dylan, IS THE BEST BEST FRIEND EVER. Every time he appeared I was so happy. He’s a rain of sunshine. His support and love for Ben are just so heartwarming. I love him.

    =>The parents were so supportive, loving, respectful and just GOALS, and I adore them.

    Okay, I love everyone in this book. Is just that good. And I really didn’t expect anything less.

    I had very high expectations and all of them were achieved.

    This was a light-warming read, that I will definitely reread at some point this year.

    This is definitely in the “Best reads of 2018” and I could be happier.

    I would love it if there were a possibility of a sequel in the future.

    And a book with Dylan POV or short story, really anything, I’ll take it. Thanks, *lol.

    Massive thank you to Edelweiss and Harper Collins for sending me this ARC.

    Can I just express how ecstatic I am at the state YA is headed this year? I've jokingly said that "20gayteen is in full swing and I am here for it" a lot, but in all seriousness, how amazing is it that YA is finally, FINALLY becoming more and more diverse with not only POC representation, but LGBTQ+ storylines being at the forefront.

    Can I just express how ecstatic I am at the state YA is headed this year? I've jokingly said that "20gayteen is in full swing and I am here for it" a lot, but in all seriousness, how amazing is it that YA is finally, FINALLY becoming more and more diverse with not only POC representation, but LGBTQ+ storylines being at the forefront. That's a big deal, people. It seems like only a few years ago YA was still, for the most part, over-saturated with heteronormativity, so I'm glad that times are changing. Books like this one are part of the reason why I started getting back into reading this year.

    I think I speak for most of us when I say that this is a book that has been long-awaited; a gay YA novel told in that charming, traditional rom-com feel, set in New York City to boot. I was just so swept up in it immediately because it is an insanely adorable story.

    Arthur and Ben are such lovable characters in their own right, and their voices never blended due to how distinct they were from each other. Most of that is because of how different Becky Albertalli's and Adam Silvera's respective writing styles are. Albertalli's is more on the energetic and humorous side; I had so many laugh out loud moments in this book during Arthur's perspective. Silvera's writing is noticeably more laidback and understated by comparison. Both of their writing styles complimented each of the characters extremely well, gave them strong personalities unique from each other.

    The romance moved a little bit fast, I have to admit. I wouldn't say it was insta-love, no. Insta-love generally means romances that don't form naturally, they're just shoved in our faces from the get-go even though the characters clearly have a very contrived and forced connection. Arthur and Ben's romance was quite believable, I would say, so it didn't feel like insta-love to me. I would've liked if there was more time for them to truly connect, but I guess the fast pace was due to Arthur only staying in New York for the summer, so it's not like there's no reason for it.

    I have mixed feelings about the ending, though. Without spoiling any specific things, I appreciated the realism of it, but then I can't deny that I wanted extra cheese. This entire book was cheesy, but in a good way, and I wanted that to last up until the ending cause I like cheese once in a while, especially if's gay cheese. But still, I totally understood what the authors were going for with its open-endedness.

    This was simply a joy to read, though, honestly. Just such a fun summer romance set in the big city, very clearly inspired by classic rom-coms. I hope someday it gets adapted to the big screen as a mainstream Hollywood release, that would just be the homosexual cherry on top of this beautiful rainbow cake.

    Side note: Arthur in this book is a musical theater nerd and pure Hamiltrash, and like Ben, I'd never seen or heard the

    soundtrack before. I guess I held back because I was bitter I would never get to actually see it live, but since this book has

    written all over it, with a dash of

    , I think I'll finally cave and join bandwagon!
