Another book I saw hyped on tiktok, and when I finally read it I felt really disappointed. It was nothing new or exciting. It was an ok read, but yeah not the greatness I expected. Hyped books are evil, if not for the hype I would not have felt so let down.

The way it was built did not work for me. It was NOW, it was 10 years ago, it was 8 years ago, it was NOW, it was confusing.

Can't say I cared for Axel or Poppy. Can't say I saw what they saw in each other. It took a bloody long time for them to get it on.

And SO long to finally see why they lost touch and I was all what?

Ugh hype, it killed it for me

Oh and I do not want to call it contemporary romance, cos hardly any romance at all, one boink and that is it

Poppy and Alex. Alex and Poppy. They have nothing in common. She’s a wild child; he wears khakis. She has insatiable wanderlust; he prefers to stay home with a book. And somehow, ever since a fateful car share home from college many years ago, they are the very best of friends. For most of the year they live far apart—she’s in New York City, and he’s in their small hometown—but every summer, for a decade, they have taken one glorious week of vacation together. Until two years ago, when they ruined everything. They haven’t spoken since.

Poppy has everything she should want, but she’s stuck in a rut. When someone asks when she was last truly happy, she knows, without a doubt, it was on that ill-fated, final trip with Alex. And so, she decides to convince her best friend to take one more vacation together—lay everything on the table, make it all right. Miraculously, he agrees. Now she has a week to fix everything. If only she can get around the one big truth that has always stood quietly in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?
