  • A story of realizing the importance of friendship

    Georgia is so relatable. At times I had to stop reading because it just, it felt too real. So many doubts and dark thoughts I once had, Georgia experienced as well. In Loveless, Georgia also tries some things that I've though about doing, which, in hindsight, i'm glad I didn't end up doing. Loveless also has amazing and supportive characters. Sunil in particular is someone I wish I had in my life now, but especially when I first started questioning my sexual and romantic orientation. Pip and Rooney and Jason are also characters I've grown to adore. Sure sometimes it does read as a bit over the top but I do think that it's not a bad thing as it might make it easier for allo people to understand what many people who are aroace experience and feel. It also does a good job at explaining these labels, what they mean and it does not ignore that there's a whole spectrum. And at the end this story is not just about Georgia and her coming out as aroace story. It's a story about friendship. How friendships can be equally important, if not more, than romantic relationships. And how we should cast aside that heteronormative and amatonormative idea that (straight) romantic relationships are all we should strife for in life. Instead this story tells you that, if you want a relationship, go ahead! but do not Neglect your friendships cause those are just as important.

  • The book is a real heart-warming read

    Eighteen-year-old Georgia has never been in love, had a crush on a guy or a girl, and never been kissed. She has told friends for years that she fancies one of the lads from school but when he makes his move on prom night she is disgusted with herself and realises that it was all an act and that she has never felt that way about anyone, nor does she want to be kissed. When she moves to Durham University with her friends Pip and Jason she is hoping that her feelings towards kissing and sex may change and sets about trying to be like everyone else and find that special someone with the help of her new roommate and their acting club. However, romance and dating are not easy to come by for Georgia like they are for others and so she questions why she is loveless. Loveless is a YA book about a young girl who feels different as she has never had a moment of passion or even had butterflies over someone else. She knows all about romance and what she likes, such as a big white wedding. It is just actually having another person to share her life with, or even just kiss that she can’t understand. She doesn’t feel that way about other people. Yes, she cares about others but not in a sexual way. Being an adult and married with three kids I’m quite sure this book isn’t aimed at me but as it was sent by the publishers to review I jumped in and I’ll be honest I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. I wasn’t sure I would be able to make a connection to the plot of the characters, but then I think knowing someone who identifies as Asexual, I could see some aspects of the book from their point of view. The book is a real heart-warming read and I hope that helps someone who feels the same can understand themselves better and realise that they are normal. It is not only about sexual feelings or lack of, it is also about being accepted, trying to fit in, and friendship. Loveless is a really lovely read that I’m glad I took a chance on. This is my first Alice Oseman book but with writing so endearing and touching it won’t be my last.

  • Relatable & well repesented

    Loveless was the first story that I saw characters with identities similar to mine that were well written and relatable. It was the first story that I read and thought "oh thats me!". It is a story of friendship and it is excellent as all Alice Oseman's books are.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The reflection of myself i didn't know i needed

    This book was the reminder of my teenage years I didn't know I needed - Georgia's struggles and the doubts she had in herself were a direct reflection of what parts of growing up I had suppressed as an adult, and this book felt like a well-intended slap to the face. It's a contemporary love story about coming to love yourself as you are, regardless of your sexuality, and it is the representation that so many can't find in TV, movies, and books. If you have had an identity crisis when you were first coming of age, and maybe you're still having those even after uni, then grab this book and remind yourself what it felt like at the beginning, to see how far you've come. And if you're just now starting to question your identity and things don't seem to click, maybe this book will show you a way to find yourself.

  • A journey of understanding

    As a straight cis-female, this book really opened my eyes into the discovering who you are as a queer person, in a world which seems to revolve around straight cis couples. Great little YA novel.
