Book review – Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour

Everything Leads to You

2/5

CW: parental death, hoarding, and homophobia

What is with me and this romance lately?? This time, it didn’t go as well as I wanted it to. After reading We Are Okay earlier this year, I decided that I was going to tackle this one, which has been on my TBR for a long time.

Emi is getting out of a bad on-again-off-again relationship and is trying to make the best of things. She’s a film buff and works as a set designer. By chance, she delves into a mystery after a sale. And, from there, she finds a new flame.

This is mainly going to be a negative review because everyone has gushed about it.

Basically, I found it boring. The characters didn’t stand off the page. The plot was predictable. The romance didn’t suit me. It just didn’t work for me is all. I know tons of people loved this book, but it really paled in comparison to We Are Okay in the end.

I kept waiting for something to happen, for it to become hard-hitting, for me to get engaged in the story.

For a while, I was engaged. I was interested. Then, the story dropped off and I wasn’t interested in it any longer. The writing was spectacular as always, but I just don’t think this was my type of book. I enjoy some romance from time to time, but I didn’t feel any chemistry between them. I’ll definitely try another book by LaCour, however I’ll do some more digging to see how much of the plot revolves around the romance.


Talk to me!
What’s a romance you read where there wasn’t much chemistry?
