So, I went into Just Last Night expecting a romance with some humor. A rom-com basically. I read a lot of reviews that focused on the romance and even people saying that the book was a rom-com. However, it was the opposite of what I was expecting.
While there was romance aspects in this book. I felt that this book was more about grief, friendship and loss. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but when I go into a book expecting one thing and get the opposite it ruins the book for me. Taking all expectations out the equation, this was still a good book.
The characters and the plot are very realistic, which is something that I can appreciate. This book can be very hard hitting for some. I wasn’t expecting a sad story, so it was rough to get through and since that was most of the book, I kind of got bored with it.
I think these thoughts are due to what my expectations were versus what the book actually was. Maybe I’ll pick this book up and read it again in the future and change my thoughts.
Have you read Just Last Night? What were your thoughts?
