    ?Born to survive the storm Born to survive the flood? This summer I read Radio Silence by Alice Oseman and it became my favorite contemporary of all-time. I fell so in love with her writing, her characters, and her messages, that I knew I wouldn?t be able to resist pick...

    Probably more of a 3.5 but I suspect that has a lot to do with my total disinterest in contemporary novels. It's always the same. It was the same with Sandhya Menon's lovely When Dimple Met Rishi. Like this one, it was a very nice, soothing story with great characters, but just not 100...

    I cried, I laughed, I fell in love. and this is just the first draft! pretty sure this is gonna slay me when it's edited. Alice Oseman was born to write this novel. A dark and funny look what happens when online fandom collides with real life in messy, bittersweet detail. Exposes th...

    I was sent an ARC copy of the book by the publisher HarperCollins, thank you so much for sending it to me! This was one of my most anticipated releases of the year, with Radio Silence being one of my all time favourite contemporaries. I was a little hesitant going into it as I saw ...

    ? 2 1/2 stars I still adore Alice Oseman, and she is still one of my favorite authors, but while I have good things to say about this book, to my dismay, I had a lot of issues with it as well, and just never really, wholly enjoyed reading it. (rtc) // buddy read with ? &...

    This is honestly just one long mental breakdown and wow if that isn't the most relatable thing. I seriously love Alice Oseman's style of writing! I adore how her books are so focused on love, like this seriously deep and consuming and complex love that isn't necessarily romantic. Radio...

    this is a book about obsession and hero worship and an internationally famous trans musician, it's about a girl going to london for the first time to meet a friend she's known for years but never met, it's about three boys who started from nothing and became gods, it's about teens who ...

    A new Alice Oseman book. After Radio Silence blew me away, I became fascinated with this author who, by the way, published her first novel at nineteen. I?m twenty, going on twenty-one, and what have I put into this world? A couple of reviews. Do they count? Let?s say they do...

    *hugs myself* I adored this. Reminded me of what it?s like to be a part of a fandom in the best way. Also that there are always two sides to a fandom and you never really know what anyone is going through (which is v cheesy but also v true so HUSH). My heart is so happy after finishi...

    I am not afraid, said Noah I was born for this Gods, Alice Oseman just keeps getting better and better with every book. I mean, Radio Silence will probably forever be my favorite of her books because it felt like my book soulmate, but this book? Beautiful. I wish I could send all ...

    5/5stars guys... I fucking loved this. Truly, I haven't connected to a book like this in a LONG time. I'm lucky, I get to see white girls in books a lot, and even recently get to see "pansexual" and "demisexual" pop up here and there, but I'm also a person who my race/sexuality...

    4.5 stars. I didn't know that listening to I Was Born For This in the train would annihilate my resting bitch face but even though I've spent hours smiling and tearing up and giggling in PUBLIC, (and can we acknowledge how WORST it is when we're listening to a book because people liter...

    ?They felt like the reason I was born was to . . . love them.? You know when your favourite writer comes up with a new book, you always get both excited and terrified, because what if this book isn?t what you had expected it to be? But then it turns out even better. Because of...

    No rating. No giving the book a star rating is rare for me and I'll get to whys in a minute, but first I need to say this. I Was Born For This is exceptional contemporary novel about teens and fandom and music. Alice Oseman just gets it, the fandom and this culture in all its glory...

    I generally really enjoyed this book! It wasn't quite as good as Radio Silence in my opinion, that one is still my favourite of Alice's! But the book was still really well written! She's such a talented author What I liked about this book: - Hijabi main character, half indian m...

    Alice Oseman's best book by far. Bloody hell. You need this book. You want it. The cover alone is worth having it. This book is one of the best examples of queer representation that I have encountered to this day. Not only are the main characters far from cis/straight/white but ...

    How do I mail one million hugs and kisses directly to Alice Oseman? I feel like this book just dragged me into whatever living equivalent of heaven there is. Alice Oseman?s books have the type of energy that will always add value to the space and lives of those who read them. They...

    This was my first Alice Oseman book and I really enjoyed it. "I Was Born For This" is a book written from two different perspectives. One perspective is the one of Angel Rahimi, a muslim girl who is a fan of a boyband called "The Ark". The other one is the perspective of one of the ban...

    4 / 5 ~ I reaaaally enjoyed this book. Alice Oseman has a way of writing characters that feel so real and relatable in so many different ways. This book is no exception. Excuse the poor quality of this review, there's not much to say other than plain truths: - I loved how she deal...
