Mini-Reviews: How to Say Goodbye in Robot, The Opposite of You

Sometimes I read too fast and can’t keep up with the reviews. Here are a few of the books. 

How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford
Release Date: October 1, 2009
Genre: YA contemporary
Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

I’m wondering why this isn’t more popular than it is.

This story follows Beatrice, aka Robot Girl, a high school senior who’s moved to a new town and a new school. There she meets “Ghost Boy” Jonah a quiet loner who doesn’t have any friends, and who she feels an instant connection to.

Just so everyone is clear there is no romance in this book. Jonah and Beatrice have a strong relationship and there is definitely love involved, but there are no romantic feelings between the two of them.

This is a quirky and weird story between two fascinating and odd characters, and with any ending that will no doubt stay with you for a while. There are definitely times when these two characters are unlikable, but at the end of the day you can’t help but sympathize with.

The Opposite of You (Opposites Attract #1) by Rachel Higginson
Release Date: March 30, 2017
Genre: Romance
Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

This was a lighthearted and entertaining enemies-to-lovers story.

Vera Delane decides to open up a food truck right across from a pretentious, five star, five course restaurant. There she meets Killian Quinn, the head chef of this expensive restaurant and it was hate at first sight.

The banter between these two characters was my favorite. I loved their dynamic, and you can see how they bring out the best in each other. There chemistry was undeniable.

The setting of this story was so unique, most of it taking place in the food truck. I loved seeing Vera and Killian work together, but also competing against each other. Obviously there was a lot of talk about food, and everything sounded delicious. It made me sad I didn’t have any to try.

If you’re looking for a more unique romance, you should check this out.
