The Memoir I'm Telling All My Friends to Read,
This review is from: Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without a Date (Kindle Edition)
*I received an advanced reader copy.* (But I don't always read the ones I receive. This drew me in immediately.)
This is one of the best memoirs I’ve read, mainly because it’s very relatable. (I saw myself and my friends in this book.) Everyone knows how it feels to like someone and to go through the various emotions of possible outcomes, and the author tells her stories so well.
It especially spoke to me, as a neurotic late bloomer. In fact, every story/character made me think of ones in my own life. As I read, I went through every journey with the author, feeling anxious or sad or hurt, etc.
The author has a great voice. Her honesty, warmth and humor--I laughed out loud, and that's rare--were what made me love reading, and I wasn’t able to stop. She articulates her thoughts so well, and in a way, I was able to find clarity in my own situations by reading about hers.
I highly recommend this book, especially for those who are a bit worried and apologetic about not being able to figure out love yet.
