I didn't intend to read Unconventional in a day; it just happened. One minute I'd started the first page and the next I was scrambling to find time to read the rest because I rapidly became obsessed.

Unconventional is told from the perspective of Lexi Angelo, who has grown up helping her dad with his comic convention business. What started as a small gathering has now turned into multiple huge, national events and Lexi is a teen superqueen and helps run the whole thing. When Lexi turns up in the greenroom one day, though, she finds Aidan Green there. He should not be in there, and this starts a string of events that sees Lexi fall in love - with a mega-hit book series and maybe with a certain boy too...

Maggie Harcourt is the UK's answer to Rainbow Rowell - her books are original, funny and SO CUTE. They're the perfect way to escape for an afternoon, caught up in the world of conventions and cosplay. It really is impossible to only read one chapter, so when you do read it, beware: you'll want to clear a whole day in order to finish it.

Unconventional is the YA equivalent of the "hand-touching" trend in romantic period dramas: slow-burning but passionate. I felt myself screaming at parts in the book because I got so invested in the story, particularly the burgeoning romance between Lexi and Aidan. Harcourt writes this very well and in a way that will make you want to shake the book and shout, "KISS ALREADY!" I loved getting so wrapped up in the story, where the only thing that mattered was the book and the characters in it.

Lexi was amazing, especially at the points where she freaked out about how much she loved Timekeepers - I could relate to the feeling of obsessing over a book to the point where I felt like I was Lexi.

Before Unconventional, I NEVER thought that HAPPY TEARS could POSSIBLY be a thing, but now that it’s happened, it has changed my whole meaning on what it means to be in LOVE with a book.
In a nutshell, Unconventional is a masterpiece that will make you BELIEVE in love, magical boys that write books that feel like they’re speaking to you and pineapples all over again!
Maybe you never needed your faith in pineapples to be reaffirmed, BUT IT WILL BE REGARDLESS.
Lexi Angelo is a convention Kid – the High Priestess of the Order of the Clipboard, you could say. If you don’t know what those are, prepare to be educated. Lexi’s father, Max Angelo runs an event planning company and while he has his team to do all the big stuff, he personally (along with his daughter, of course) loves planning the conventions.
Think the Comic-Con you’ve always wanted to go to, and a Max Angelo Convention is probably better.
Lexi has every aspect of the conventions planned out, even though she knows that fifteen minutes, it will all go to hell. With her team of friends, they organise and manage the chaos that is thousands of fans and temperamental artists with poise, and reprieves under tables.
Lexi thought she had it all… until Aidan Green.
And believe me, YOU will never experience a love story as FREAKING ADORABLE as this one is!
If you haven’t gotten it for a) the happy tears or b) the five star rating let me tell you, I LOVE THIS BOOK. LOVE IT. LOVE IT SO MUCH THAT I WAS SQUEALING AND FLAILING AND FANGIRLING AND FALLING for this world and these characters, and let me tell you why:
1. IT’S CENTERED ON CONVENTIONS: If this isn’t THE MOST ADORABLE place to place to set a book I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS.

Unconventional stole my heart from page one. It's an enchanting romance in a totally original setting. Anyone who has been to a convention, or experienced any side of fandom will feel right at home. I enjoyed every minute, and yes - I want to read Piecekeepers for real!
