Read + Review: Loveless by Alice Oseman

Loveless is a standalone novel following the story of Georgia, a hopeless romantic who realizes she’s never had a crush on anyone, ever. Georgia goes down a path of self-acceptance as she navigates the obstacles hurtled at her through university, and the ever-present question of when romance would strike her. The story follows tear-jerking moments, hilarious situations, and an overarching theme of friendship and acceptance. Loveless is an extremely important coming-of-age, LGBTQ+ story of a community that tends to be underrepresented in popular culture today.

This book was so important on so many levels. The representation and diversity genuinely had me thrilled. It had such an authentic, inclusive cast of characters, and Oseman made you relate to and love every character on every level. The depiction of friendships was genuinely heartwarming, and I loved the importance placed on platonic rather than romantic relationships. This is an essential YA read, due to its fantastic writing style as well as its hilarious, honest, and touching moments. It was genuinely hard for me to put this book down!

Georgia was a fantastic main character, and I was rooting for her in every moment of the book. It was fantastic to see her come to terms with herself and see her journey of self-acceptance.
