Hey Guys! So, I am done with my first read of my first read-a-thon! And I am done with it in one day, so you can guess how wonderful it was.
So, as you might know, I am partaking a Taylor Swift Read-a-thon and I am to read 8 books in a month. So, the first book I picked was Today Tonight Tomorrow- a book by Rachel Lynn Solomon. It’s prompt was: The Way I Loved You: Read a book with the enemies-to-lovers trope
Rowan Roth has hated Neil McNair for about four years now. They have been cut-throat competitors throughout high school, and being named the valedictorian is the last yet most prestigious competition. So, when Neil is named valedictorian, Rowan is practically crushed. But she doesn’t lose hope as she can still beat him in Howl, a senior class game that takes them all over Seattle, a farewell tour of the city she loves. But after learning a group of seniors is out to get them, she and Neil reluctantly decide to team up until they’re the last players left—and then they’ll destroy each other. But as Rowan spends more time with Neil, she realizes there is much more to this guy than she ever saw….
I LOVED THIS BOOK! I mean after seeing the cover I thought I probably won’t but as the saying goes- Don’t judge a book by it’s cover! This book is the next biggest fluffy YA contemporary and you need to read it now.
I am a big fan of enemies to lovers trope but this one was just beautiful. I also have a few words from other languages that I have added to my vocabulary but the one I like the most is tsundoku from Japanese which means acquiring more books than you can ever read. When I read this word and the meaning which lingered not far behind, I was like… THIS IS ME!
The characters were absolute joys to read although I did find Rowan a little annoying in the beginning but she grows on you. And Neil…. where do I even start? All I am saying is that if Rowan ever breaks up with him, HE IS MINE! The subsidiary characters were also well-portrayed- Kirby, Mara, all of them.
Another aspect I liked about this book is how well the prejudice against Jews is portrayed. There was no sugar-coating it- the author just blatantly put it out there.
Another thing that I loved was that the author fought against the romance-haters in the book. I am probably leaking out too much, but this book is worth a read.
Have you read this book? Do you plan to? Are you taking part in the Taylor Swift Read-a-thon? Let me know in the comments!
