About this deal

For example, there’s the fact one of the protagonists—Claire—is bisexual, and it feels genuinely like part of her identity, rather than a word on the page, shaping how she understands herself and relates to the world around her. For once it’s actually a gender thing and in Europe you’d never see men kiss each other on the cheeks or cuddle.

So I’m happy to say that although Delilah Green was not the new favourite I hoped for, it still definitely lived up to the hype. When she's not writing or reading, she's wrangling her two young sons, falling into Pinterest holes, drinking coffee, taking walks, or trying to figure out which Orphan Black clone she likes best.Pleasing parents syndrome is a struggle we often see in many books, but Astrid’s struggle in this one felt a bit more unique than others I’ve read.

I loved every hilarious character, every outrageous shenanigan – and most of all, I loved Delilah Green. On top of that, there’s the romance which we didn’t get to see develop, because of the above mentioned useless plot points. This book is told from a dual point of view and I really enjoyed reading from both Delilah and Claire. After you take a moment to take in this gorgeous cover, you're going to want to immediately pick up this debut. My biggest issues were the author was trying to make it a point that she is an intersectional feminist, which is great, but my god, can you be anymore blatant ?

I found this novel to have an excellent balance of romance and other plot elements, both of which I was really invested in. That’s A LOT of trauma and emotion, none of which is explored with any sense of meaning and purpose. Although Amy and Elena had told me they struggled to get into this book, I found the beginning decently gripping and I was pretty quickly enthralled.

i'm not gonna over-analyze the whole thing or its writing, because it was alright and i don't have anything to say about it except that it was super enjoyable and so steamy i almost chocked on my pizza reading one of the smutty scenes. This review is rambling and makes absolutely no sense but please just take my word for it that this was an absolute delight and you neeeeeed!The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.
