The romance between Lexi and Aiden was adorable, and the play on the love to hate trope that really got my interest and left me gripping every page. The writing was accessible and I finished this in only a few hours during a read-a-thon.
Although this book was fast paced, I did feel there was a lack of substance. Which sometimes is something that we all need when we're reaching the cusp of I read this purely for these reasons and still absolutely enjoyed it for what it was. A cute romance. And every fangirl reader's dream. Falling for the cute young guy who wrote your favourite book.
I found myself laughing out loud a few times and having a silly giggle, which is always how I prefer my YA contemporaries.
Also, if we could get more cameos of young-adult authors, I might read more contemporaries.
Lexi has grown up with the conventions her dad runs but now she’s reached the age where she has to consider her future more than the panels and cosplayers she sees on a yearly basis.
What started as a small gathering of people in love with all things films, TV and book related has turned into one of the biggest conventions that run every few months around the UK. Lexi is the go-to queen of cons, fixing things that need to be fixed, finding a single lost dog in a whole hotel, and even kicking people out of the green room. Aiden – or Haydn – finds himself on the other side of Lexi’s clipboard with no invitation to be in the green room so she kicks him out, later to find out he’s the soon to be star author that everyone wants to meet. Meeting him starts off Lexi’s obsession with his book and maybe even a small obsession with the boy himself…
The whole book was light and easy to read – only a bit of angst but what doesn’t have that? The characters, Lexi, Sam, Bede and Nadiya, were so fun to read about. Their banter and how they acted with each other, you could tell they had made their own family. Even when they fought, they still found themselves back together again and working as a team.
I love stories about self-discovery and this was definitely a journey of self-discovery for Lexi. It’s understandable being so comfortable in what you’re doing that you never want to leave the bubble you’ve created around yourself, but Lexi definitely begins to learn that outside of her comfort zone isn’t all that bad.
The whole book gave me Rainbow-Rowell-feels. Unconventional is a delightful read and I can’t wait for more of Maggie’s work.
