#127 Unconventional, a little book review

Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt was a book I'd been waiting for what felt like forever and it exceeded my expectations and I couldn't help but fall in love with Lexi, Aidan and Sam.
Taking place across various conventions run by Lexi and her dad Unconventional is the type of YA romance I adore!




















I read this book in about a week and I found myself laughing along with this book, cringing when Lexi did and cheering along as Lexi and Aidan's relationship (slowly) progressed!

















I seem to say this about quite a few of the books I read but Unconventional is so different from other YA novels I've read, for one the majority of the story takes place at a convention (well multiple) and the romance is slow burning! Which I loved, I don't know about you but I'm kinda over how quickly YA characters end up together.
The two of them had their issues and we saw Lexi's doubts and it just felt so much more real than other YA relationships.























With everything that's going on in the world it was nice to just become absorbed into a lovely story, so much YA nowadays is made up of dystopia and it was nice to read a book that was about something as simple as comic conventions.

I loved how developed the characters were and it really felt like you'd known them for years which I loved, it kinda felt like catching up with a friend you haven't seen for a while.

This book truly is beautiful inside and out (that cover, though!) and the comparisons to Rainbow Rowell are definitely true and valid (I'm aware this sounds negative but I adore Rainbow Rowell)!


















Reading Unconventional really made me miss attending conventions and I'm determined to try to get to a few throughout the year!

  1. The cover of this book is so cute, really like it! I like the fact that this story is a little bit different too, it's always nice to get a breath of fresh air from reading a book, rather than being able to predict the storyline! Thanks for sharing!
