Starry Eyes rocked my world - did Alex, Approximately have the same effect? Time to find out in this review!
My contemporary heart swelled while reading this novel. The setting, the characters and the way everything happens felt.. just perfect, really?!
At the start of the year, I read Dear Martin by Nic Stone and rated it 4,5 cupcakes so you can say I was quite excited to hear about her new novel. Not to mention there'd be queer characters. I was sold, needed it, requested it and.. by some amazing miracle actually got my hands on an eARC?! And then I finished it and it all came crashing down.
Today's one of those days were something rare happens: I'm part of a blog tour. I rarely do that, but I really wanted to share this book because I believe it to be one of a kind. Set in South Africa - more specifically Cape Town - I was intrigued immediately. I love romance novels set in different countries outside of the "ordinary" London and Paris ones. Romance in Africa? Count me in!
I went into this novel knowing I was going to cry. I've heard of Silvera's reputation, I remember being completely and utterly broken when I read "They Both Die At The End". I expected to be as broken as I was then, but... That didn't happen..
