The fourth novel from the phenomenally talented Alice Oseman – one of the most authentic and talked-about voices in contemporary YA.
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?
This wise, warm and witty story of identity and self-acceptance sees Alice Oseman on towering form as Georgia and her friends discover that true love isn’t limited to romance.
Firstly, the representation in Loveless is AMAZING! Loveless features a Latinx Lesbian, Asexual/Aromantic, Gay Asexual Indian, Bisexual or Pansexual (not specified but liked both male & female) & Bisexual Aromantic! I’m not sure I’ve actually read a book with an Asexual or Aromantic character before so this was awesome.
I loved the themes of friendship that were prominent in Loveless. As someone who doesn’t love romances in books its amazing to see good friendship themes instead. I loved how the friendships developed in this book and I also loved that it showed the rocky side of things when it comes to friendship.
I also really enjoyed the characters, especially Georgia. There is so much character development for all the characters in Loveless but especially Georgia. It was amazing seeing her learn and struggle and grow throughout the book. I also love that even when she did something that was problematic she realised that mistake and genuinely apologised for it. It’s so annoying to see problematic actions made by characters thats never discussed afterwards or rectified in any way. *Cough* Leah on the Offbeat *Cough*…
This book was also super fun and easy to read. There were lots of drama to keep you interested and it was very unpredictable. I had a tonne of fun reading this and it definitely helped with my reading slump!
Overall I really enjoyed Loveless and I highly recommend picking it up! I can’t wait to see what Alice Oseman brings out next and I’m super keen for Nick & Charlie to release in physical copy! I will definitely be jumping on that one!
Have you read Loveless? What did you think of the representation? What’s your favourite Alice Oseman book? I think Loveless or Radio Silence are my faves!
