I Loved You First: Review

From Goodreads:
My best friend was more than just a best friend to me. Three words summed it up: I heart him. I'd never tell him though. I wasn't stupid. Besides, what he'd told no one, but me, was a little something I wished I could forget… or ignore. He was gay. I guess gay wouldn't be bad if I wasn't so in love with him. Now it was just cruel.

Stereotypes run amok in this college love story: Parties, alcohol, hookups, and breakups. Alexandria Carmichael may find it a bit much as she deals with the unreturned love from the boy who completes her. When all is revealed, not only does she risk losing her best friend forever, but also herself. Without her childhood companion for support, Alexandria takes a journey of self-discovery but fears what she'll find at the end.


My Review:
I really enjoyed this book! It was about finding who you were by yourself, and who you wanted to be, who you wanted around you. It was pretty emotional, and a little heartbreaking.

All the relationships in this book, they were really complex, and then sometimes they got stronger, and they sometimes they got weaker, but they were different, and I liked them!

I loved Alex's struggles with who she likes, and then with herself, it was just really good, and interesting, finding out who you are.

This was a really good book, so I hope that you'll check out the giveaway link below!
