If you’re a sucker for sweet romances and are curious about Asian culture, do yourself a favour and pick up this book!
I’m the first to admit that I am usually pretty picky when it comes to reading self-published novels, so I tried to lower my expectations when I got into this. But believe me, I really didn’t have to!
The writing flows just beautifully, despite it being in two POVs. Speaking of the POVs they felt separate and didn’t blend in which I know can be hard to pull of. I thought the characters were very well developed, each of them so distinguished from the others but in harmony with them too. I really enjoyed the friendships and relationships that were set, the interactions seemed organic, and so did the dialogue.
I liked the pacing. It didn’t feel rushed, and it didn’t feel slow either. The story was engrossing, and despite how alien the setting might be, it somehow felt close. I have to admit that it was a bit more angsty than I thought it would be, but it was a nice and welcomed surprise, as it added to the dynamic ever-present in the book.
It was enjoyable and fun. It was hard to put it down.
Whether you’re an enthusiast, someone who enjoys it from afar like me, or the biggest Kpop fan, there’s something for you in this book. If you like fluffy YA romance, angsty YA romance, or YA stories about friendship, this book is for you.
