I need to process all this awesomeness

Hey guys! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

So, I finally read Loveless, a book I delved into with extremely high expectations, and well, I have to say, it’s worth the hype! It is so amazing, I swear!

Without further ado, let’s get into the book!

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

Georgia has never been in love, never kissed anyone, never even had a crush – but as a fanfic-obsessed romantic she’s sure she’ll find her person one day.

As she starts university with her best friends, Pip and Jason, in a whole new town far from home, Georgia’s ready to find romance, and with her outgoing roommate on her side and a place in the Shakespeare Society, her ‘teenage dream’ is in sight.

But when her romance plan wreaks havoc amongst her friends, Georgia ends up in her own comedy of errors, and she starts to question why love seems so easy for other people but not for her. With new terms thrown at her – asexual, aromantic – Georgia is more uncertain about her feelings than ever.

Is she destined to remain loveless? Or has she been looking for the wrong thing all along?


Okay, so I have actually never read a book about asexuality- in fact I never even knew about it, until it was mentioned in this show I was watching, and that was also this year. I don’t think a lot of people even know about it, because we have been fed this idea of the fact that we’ll get our happily ever after, no matter what, which isn’t entirely wrong, because that is the custom, right? Asexuals aren’t that very common, and even if a person does feel like they might be asexual- I don’t think a lot of people even know about this sort of sexuality. They don’t have people to guide them like Georgia did. Okay, enough talk, let’s get to the review.


The plot as I mentioned is pretty unique. I mean, I honestly haven’t read a book like this ever before, but please let me know in the comments if you have! It is about discovering yourself, and being happy with who you are. And while this sounds incredibly boring, I assure you, the book isn’t! There’s drama too, and come on, who doesn’t like a bit of drama?


I love how diverse the cast of characters was! Not just sexuality wise- Georgia’s best friend Pip, was a Latinx too. And Sunil, Georgia’s college parent was Indian.

I have to say, I did not really like Rooney, Georgia’s roommate a lot (Although there are striking similarities between me and her), even in the end, but I do ship her and Pip very very hard! I liked Georgia too, like despite the mistakes she made. But my favourite character was Sunil. Not just because he was of Indian origin, but also because of his calming stature. I mean, I really do do like him, in a non-romantic way.

Jason, Georgia’s other best friend was kinda awesome too. Like, I would kill for a guy best friend like that.

So, yeah, I loved the characters overall! And I loved the friendships even more- in fact they might be my favourite part of this book!

Writing Style:

It took me some time getting used to the writing style of Alice Oseman, but once I got used to it, it was fantastic! In fact, I ordered three more of Alice Oseman’s books before even finishing this one, without even reading the blurb, just because I was eager to see what else she came up with!

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ x ♾

Have you read this book? What did you think of it? Is it on your TBR? Let me know in the comments!

P.S.- You might be getting a book haul part two soon, I ordered 10 books!!

  1. Hey, great review, I’m so glad that you enjoyed this, because as someone on the aroace spectrum, it’s one of my favorite books!
    Not to nag, but looking at your first paragraph about it, I just wanted to mention a few things. First of all, asexual and aromantic people are not uncommon, at least not any more uncommon than anyone of any other sexuality. It’s just because, like you mentioned, there’s so little info about the sexualities, and so little media, etc. that people who are aroace or somewhere on the spectrum, just don’t realize it very often. But it’s not that we’re super uncommon. Also, I honestly just might have been reading this wrong, but it kind of looked like with the wording in that paragraph that you were saying that romance=happily ever after? If you meant something different and I just read it wrong then that’s totally fine, but the wording might be a little bit weird, I don’t know.
    Awesome review!

    1. Thanks Phoenix!
      Oh, well, thank you for telling me that. Honestly, I literally have no idea of asexuals and the entire topic in general, since I really haven’t come across this topic a lot.
      As for the happily ever after thing, I just meant to say that like Georgia, a lot of us have been fed this idea of having a happily ever after and a success romantic marriage, and asexuality is always kept out of mind in such contexts. I didn’t mean to offend anyone, please let me know if there was something wrong with that statement! I am really sorry!

      Thank you for reading, and for sharing your thoughts!

      1. Yeah, I mean it’s just another sexuality, there’s just as many people who are ace or aro as those who are gay or bi. Yeah, alright, in the sentence it sounded a little bit like you were saying that a romantic marriage IS the happily ever after which is obviously not true given the contents of what you’re trying to say. Also, I would like to point out that in this book, Georgia is aroace, aromantic and asexual, so she’s not only asexual! There are people who are asexual without being aro, or aromantic without being ace, so that’s something to be noted when just writing ‘asexuals’. You might want to consider changing it to ‘aroace people’ or some variation of that instead!
        Hey, it’s alright, we’re all learning! I didn’t know any of these things until a year ago, you’re all good! If you have any questions for me or anything, please don’t hesitate to ask, I’m completely fine with answering them!

      2. Yeah, that’s true!
        And no, even when I didn’t know about this sexuality, I wouldn’t have said that, because you can be happy without a romantic partner!
        Oh, I will keep that in mind the next time!
        Thank you so much Phoenix for all of this knowledge, it has really helped me!

  2. I’m glad you finally read and also loved this book, Riddhi! Georgia is just such a relatable person, and then there was all the Shakespeare! Of course, I had to love it 😂 Oh, and we actually agree on something for once – Sunil was also my favorite character! (Although I did also like Rooney 😉)

  3. Oooo, I definitely want to read this! I feel like asexuality is getting more exposure in fiction, and in better ways too. It sounds like Georgia’s character particularly highlights the fact that someone can be asexual without necessarily being aromanitc, which is an important distinction.

  4. okay, maybe I’ll read this book after I finish reading AGGGTM.
    glad you enjoyed this book! and thank you SO much for recommending Zlibrary to me, I didn’t know any free e-book websites and you saved me a lot of browsing time x😂

      1. well, i didn’t see it coming until the last 100 pages, but i thought it could be a possibility since i knew that none of the four could’ve done it.
        i didn’t like the second book as much though.
