This is a lovely coming-of-age (coming-of-ace?) campus novel. It follows the protagonist, Georgia, on her journey of realising, and coming to terms with, her aromantic asexual identity, and also explores the universal adolescent experience of being desperate to 'fit in', be like everyone else and have as much fun as you think everyone else is having. It's also a beautiful exploration of the joys of friendship and platonic love.

#ReadHarder challenge 17: a book with an asexual/aromantic main character

Georgia is the older sister of Charlie from the Heartstopper series. This book is about Georgia‘s journey in experimenting and figuring out her sexuality. I was hoping for more of a proud moment when she identified herself as aromantic asexual, (personal hope tho) but the representation is important and was fairly well done outside of that. loved the emphasis on found family and being fulfilled by platonic love vs romantic.

5 stars- I LOVED this ode to friendship-love. I agree with the message wholeheartedly although I'm not aromantic or asexual. Life is just as fulfilling with loving friendships as it is with a partner. So this was a great book for me and I think it has a great message for everyone, old and especially young!

I really wanted to like this book because I LOVE being asexual 🖤🤍💜 but I found myself pretty frustrated with this book. I was hoping Georgia would have a moment of “my whole life makes sense now” and it would feel a lot prouder. Instead, the book focused on the dramas of experimentation and the frustration of being different.

an important book for YA (even college) for ace awareness but not the most well-written or optimistic coming of age :/

I think maybe you need to be as much in love with Oseman's characters as she is to enjoy her books, and sadly, this time I really wasn't.

Happy Pride Month! I cannot tell you how pleased I am to have 4 books with ace rep in my house and available to add to my June TBR! It‘s so great to see YA fiction with asexual characters. I wish we‘d had these options when I was younger 🖤🤍💟💜

Joining in late for #LGBTQBookBingo #LGBTQ2022 but I am including 3 books I've read so far this year that fit some of the prompts. The cast of characters in these 3 books includes demisexual, aro-ace, bisexual, and non-binary representation!

Bookgoil Listening to Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars right now and loving it! Would recommend for trans rep or memoir. (edited) 4mo

I loved this so much! I‘m not usually a YA reader but #pop22 had me looking for a novel with #acharacterontheacespectrum and this one caught my eye. It‘s sweet and charming, and sensitively handles Georgia‘s journey as she explores and discovers her aro/ace sexuality. I loved the UK university setting, and the Shakespeare society shenanigans…… (continued in comments)⬇️

KarenUK …. but most of all, I loved all the complicated friendship stuff. Warm-hearted and full of humor, I hope this book finds its way into the hands of young readers that can relate to this story. (edited) 4mo

Woosah! It's been a hot minute. Life went up in flames fam. I've read a little here and there but mostly was busy inside my mind and in my life trying to figure things out. I went to pick up kindle to read and felt like this is a good representation of my reading life. But I'm back at it! Starting in with Loveless by Alice Oseman - thank goodness I also checked out the audio book! 😅

This contemporary YA is definitely written for the teen demographic and is a bit angsty, but I loved how the story delves into the different kinds of love, and how platonic love can be just as powerful as romantic love. There is a great cast of characters I absolutely adored, and the diversity and authenticity of the characters was so refreshing!

The story was a bit too quaint for my taste, but had a good development and good asexual representation in my opinion. I would definitely recommend this for young adult readers. Heartstopper is still my favorite of Oseman's work.

Definitely wish I had when I went to college. Just like Georgia‘s first year at uni, we first heard of asexuality. The “nothing gender.” Both fought to understand this new term vs what we‘ve been brainwashed to think about relationships. Second half‘s full of drama; with her friend circle because of experimenting what feels right vs what feels wrong within relationships. It‘s up to you. Really liked the emphasis on platonic love

It only took 14 pages for me to feel seen. I already feel this is a book I needed when I was younger. Georgia is heading to Uni, so unsure of herself in real life romance. She likes the idea of romance, but the truth of it frightens her. I feel this so deep. I also enjoy reading romance in books, fanfics and movies. But real life? I don‘t get it. My first kiss wasn‘t till early 20‘s, and I felt so left behind. Just like Georgia.

Fun cast of characters. This is a YA coming out/finding yourself ace romance novel set during the first year of uni. I learned so much about the ace sexual orientation and had a lot of fun reading the book. The story emphasizes the importance of platonic friendships for ace but I think it‘s something we can all do well to remember.

A great read! Georgia is at her first year of university and while trying to figure herself out, she makes mistakes along the way, but also manages to get some things right. A great cast of characters with nice representation! This book stresses how friendships/platonic love can be just as strong and important (and maybe more so) than romantic love.

Loved this so much! It's about a girl discovering herself and how what she does to do this affects the relationships she has with the people around her and how friendship can be the most important bond in a person's life. It felt really honest and hit way harder than it should have. Fantastic read.

This isn‘t really the type of book that I normally read but I really enjoyed it. I loved the writing and how the book focused on platonic love and friendships a lot over romantic love and such relationships. I loved the LGBTQ+ representation and the characters, some of which I found extremely relatable. Overall, I definitely recommend this book!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I needed this book! Not only is it about self-discovery and the anxiety that can come with that journey; it is also about love, in every form. Even if you‘re asexual, aromantic, or any of the other parts of the spectrum, you have love in friendship. That can be equally as beautiful and fulfilling. A wonderful read. Also, the mug I just bought the other day! ❤️

3. The age of the MC

How to describe this book in 3 words?
I loved it.....To be honest I didn‘t know what to expect but the author has penned a beautiful, warm book that looks at identity, self belief and acceptance.
The importance of true friendship is explored in detail but the diversity and representation in this story was so careful to avoid stereotypes
It covers different sexualities (some of which I‘d never heard of).
Praise for this YA contemporary writer ❤️

I really appreciated this book. I love it when the character attends university, because that‘s where I am right now. Characters who identify as asexual / aromantic are very rare in fiction, and I thought Gergoia‘s journey was interesting.

This is my second book by the author, I hated the first (Solitaire: too many cringe pop culture references).

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars

I will be honest. I didn't knew what asexuality and aromantic truly was before this book. I mean yes, I had heard about it but my views remained constricted to ' I don't want to have sex ' . The fact that I wasn't introduced to this before makes me ?
But I love this book. My favourite scene was when Georgia did the big college proposal for Pip and when she asked why, she simply says "you deserve magical moments like this"
Words girl. I felt you.

Dear Alice Oseman,
Thank you thank you thank you.

I knew I wanted, needed, would love this. I had no idea HOW MUCH. This book means so much to me. An aro-ace MC by an OWNVOICES author?? We are blessed. Tho my own journey is very different from Georgia‘s, her story rang so true. Her struggle to separate society‘s BS from her own feelings, her fuck ups, her flaws...so real. I gush more on GR. I loved this. LOVED. Platonically. 5/5 🌟

Wow. Was this really 12 and a half hours?? It sure didn‘t feel like that. This was one of the best books I‘ve read/listened to this year. It was extremely relatable and very well written. I laughed, I cried and I experienced probably every emotion in between. I very much enjoyed the fact that this takes place in a university because I‘ve rarely read any books that do. The audiobook was also super good!💚💜

I was initially worried that I wouldn't like this book, it's the first I've read with aro-ace rep. I had nothing to worry about though, it was perfect and I found myself relating to so much.

This is definitely my favourite Alice Oseman novel yet and I absolutely love that it's an #ownvoices aroace book which seem to be so few and far between. Some parts were cringey but Alice's books always seem to be like that for me. The friendships though were probably my favourite part of the entire story.
