another great read in the oseman-verse! i adored the characters and their relationships, however the arising conflicts in the last acts seemed too out of place for me. still a great read on all things sexuality and friendships though!! ( )

I have to skip this one, at least for now. It's reeeally young adult. I guess it's not far from [b:Heartstopper: Volume One|40495957|Heartstopper Volume One (Heartstopper, #1)|Alice Oseman|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1541887843l/40495957._SY75_.jpg|62811229], has a similar tone, but I'm really not in the mood for this right now. Also it's really distracting that the author used apostrophe instead of quotation marks for the dialogue.

Even then, the 2 chapters I sampled mentioned a lot of stuff I can relate to. I can only hope that not only aro-ace people but everyone else will understand what Georgia is talking about when she says "I guess that boy is attractive. I guess I like him. I guess I do want to kiss him."

I'm in love with the IDEA of romance, but it's not for me personally. Case in point, my lack of love life and the hundreds of romance books on my shelves. :)

This is a book which all teens, however they identify, should read. Heck, even adults could read this and learn a bunch of stuff about asexuality in general. I loved how Georgia slowly finds out that there is indeed a label that suits whatever she was feeling her whole life. The characters in this book is just so likable, even Rooney, Georgia's roommate who at first didn't give me very good impressions ended up being one of my favorite. I loved how this book emphasizes on platonic love which I haven't seen much of in queer books so far. The friendship between Georgia, Rooney, Pip, Jason and Sunil is so wholesome and that's definitely one of the strongest points of the book here. I enjoyed the writing style of the author, Alice Oseman, which I found really easy to read and suitable for books like these. This book gives hope to those who identify as asexual, or who has yet to realize that they too, might just be like Georgia and its so important that more media like these are more accessible because it would help those who need it tremendously. I'm extremely grateful to have the opportunity to read this, I didn't really have any knowledge of the asexuality/aromantic sexuality besides their vague definitions but I now know more then I had previously and then some. Seriously though, if you're hesitant in getting this, please just try the book out! ( )

While I really wanted to like this book more than I did, I can say without a doubt that this is a good book and great aroace rep to boot. I think I’m too close to some of the issues it’s dealing with, but can absolutely see a lot of people really connecting with the story and Georgia in particular.

This is also without a doubt an Oseman novel. It features well-realized, frequently awkward and anxious teens who don’t fall into clichés and are allowed to be weird and complicated and hypocritical without being judged for it. It celebrates friendship and self-growth and has a lot of casual, positive queerness and other diversity. It’s funny and sweet and also dark and serious. The plot is unique. It covers issues that don’t turn up in a lot of YA novels, in this case figuring out sexuality, how bad relationships can twist people up, unlearning coping mechanisms and internalized narratives, and what makes a strong friendship. And it’s well-written.

But this is the first Oseman book that’s felt long. I know that working out sexuality and attraction is frequently very involved and Georgia’s journey needed to take a while to be believable, that the book’s trying to explain lesser-known orientations with nuance (which also takes time), and that the subplots are also not quick fixes. I get the whys. I just wasn’t expecting to feel like I was “pushing through” the book at points, especially not from an author I really like and a genre I’m used to being fast reading.*

I’m also in the odd position of saying Georgia might be my favourite Oseman protagonist though she isn’t the one I relate to most, and that I understood her a lot but also didn’t see a whole lot of myself in her. She’s possibly the most complex MC Oseman’s written, partly because Oseman takes the time to make her so (so that length I mentioned isn’t necessarily a bad thing), and I was barely introduced to her angst over relationships before I wanted to take her under my wing.** She’s not always likeable, but I liked her point-of-view and would be up for reading a sequel than for Oseman’s other books.

And a lot of her ace- and aro-ness is stuff I definitely connect with and understand deeply. There is so much truth to the rep here (and this is probably a good time to mention she’s not the only ace or aro in the book!). But Georgia’s need to date and be “normal” is not something I relate much too, which meant I wasn’t as absorbed in the story like I could’ve been. But like I said at the start of this review, I think a lot of aces and aros are going to relate to that, and I’m the exception to the rule here. Oseman even does a good job balancing the usual sorts of Ace 101 stuff with … let’s call it Ace 202. I’d totally hand this book to anyone wanted to learn more about the ace/aro experience.

So my feelings are complicated. Loveless does a lot of things really well—everything, pretty much—and is certainly a book I’ll be reccing, especially to aspec folks who want to see themselves, but I either wasn’t in the headspace to enjoy it or for other reasons just didn’t quite connect to it. Unfortunately, because I was really hoping I would.

*Goodreads says it took me a standard length of reading time for YA, however, so clearly this is in my mind and not the book being physically longer.

** Which might say something about how old I am compared to Georgia and the target audience of this book

To bear in mind: Contains club and drinking culture, one (1) aphobe, a whole lot of aroace angst, and some unfortunate, questionable, but relatable decisions related to relationships

There were literally three separate couples sitting around the fire making out, like some sort of organised kissing orgy, and half of me was like, ew, and the other half was like, Wow, I sure do wish that was me.

It was all sinking in. I'd never had a crush on anyone. No boys, no girls, not a single person I'd ever met. What did that mean?
