Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzales has to be one of my favourite romance books as it is funny, a massive heart throb and engagingly written. The novel is about a boy called Ollie who moves to a new town just after the best summer of his life which he spent with the boy of his dreams. Then that boy stopped texting him but goes to Ollieís new high school...

This book will definitely guarantee readers feel a connection to the characters so much that you laugh out loud at the funny but stupid jokes. I hate to say this, but the beginning did not compel me. If you want a book that captivates you in 4 pages this isnít the book as you have to get used to the style in which the book is written with massive explanations in what Ollie is thinking. I donít really like that in books, as you have to read more to get to the point. But overall, this book is great, and I would definitely recommend it to high school students and above because of its powerful emotion and strong connection with the reader to the characters.
