Let's Talk About Love by Claire Kann

Let's Talk About Love

Alice had her whole summer planned. Non-stop all-you-can-eat buffets while marathoning her favorite TV shows (best friends totally included) with the smallest dash of adulting--working at the library to pay her share of the rent. The only thing missing from her perfect plan? Her girlfriend (who ended things when Alice confessed she's asexual). Alice is done with dating--no thank you, do not pass go, stick a fork in her, done.But then Alice meets ...

    Asexuality is real.It is not ‘‘weird’’ or ‘‘unnatural’’ or a ‘‘mental illness’’. If you have trouble wrapping your mind around this concept, that’s okay. This is why this story was written: to educate and to answer your questions without info-dumping you.And make you melt. Not only is this story relevant, fresh and informative, it also makes your insides feel warm and mushy. Because Alice is relatable. I may not identify...

    You know what we need to talk about?! How absolutely ADORABLE this book is. Actually wait wait....adorkable is the better word. Because it's cute and fluffy and dorky and wholesome and my heart feels rather full right now. I shall sniffle happily in the corner.I do kind of feel like it's more New Adult?! Like the GOOD kind of NA where you care about the characters and the plot lmao. But I'm guessing Alice was 19 (??) and life was all about how to...

This in no way impacts my review of the novel.I’m in need of a setting to give this novel 6 out of 5 stars because h o l y c r a p y’all, this novel changed my life.LET’S TALK ABOUT LOVE is a story about a biromantic asexual black woman, Alice, in college, living with her two best friends who are dating, and working at a library where she meets Takumi, who ch...

    Aaah this is amazing on so many levels. There is a TON of incredible rep, some truly wonderful characters, and the story is so relatable. Everything is just real. Alice is a biromantic asexual college student whose girlfriend breaks up with her because she thinks Alice doesn't love her as much if she doesn't want to have sex. Alice wants a romantic relationship and works through a lot of common questions and struggles with her counselor. Then she...

    It's 1:50am, I don't even know why I decided to write this review right now but here I am.I remember when I first heard about this book, it was somewhere around May 2017 and I just got extremely excited about it. Then people started getting ARCs and loving it — one of my friends fell in love with this story and because I trusted their judgment I preordered the book without knowing much about it.Alice is a 19-year-old biromantic asexual Black gi...

    This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews.DNF at 14% – 1/5Okay.So.First thing’s first.I am asexual. I’ve identified as such since I was about 15-16 (and I’m nearly 22 now). Sex doesn’t interest me that much. While I, personally, would never discount that I could find someone I want to do that with or would feel comfortable doing it with, I’m not interested in it.And when I heard about this book, I was so excited. Finally,...

    ➳ 3 1/2 starsLet’s Talk About Love is really sweet and heart-warming, but I felt like something was missing? I need a little bit more than just the main character Alice aceing that whole dating thing to make me really like a book. (rtc)*LOOK AT THE TAGLINE, GUYS!! I’m sold (on the pun & this book).Also, who wants to take a minute to appreciate the diversity in this book with me; we have a Black bi- (or pan)-romantic asexual female main char...

    **Note: I read the free-to-read version of this book that was posted on Swoon Reads, which may not be is not the final version.**2nd note: I'm removing my one-star rating after seeing reviews saying the problematic stuff has been fixed in the published version. I haven't read that version myself yet, though.**3rd note: Here's a review of the published version that shows that not *all* of the troubling stuff has been fixed: https://www.goodreads.c...

    ”Life could be cruel. But it could also be wonderful.” This is a tough review to write. I really wanted to five star this book because it has hella diversity and it was so fun, but there were also some issues with the writing and with Takumi. However, that doesn’t mean that this isn’t a book that deserves lots of readers and support, because it deals with a lot of issues that marginalized peoples have to deal with today, while still maint...

    4.5* Let's Talk About Love made my heart squee. It gave me all of the happy, fuzzy feelings. With it's wonderful exploration of asexuality, witty dialogue, loveable characters and addictive relationships, I couldn't recommend it more highly. I absolutely adored Alice and Takumi and there are passages I'm sure I could read one hundred times over and never get bored. I LOVED the fact that this focused on an older teen/young adult and the fact that ...

    Trigger warnings: aphobia, creepy af dudes at parties, some seriously mediocre parenting?This book. This book, this book, this book. I've been dying to read this book for over a year now, and words cannot describe how much I squealed when it arrived on my Kindle the other day. This book tells the story of a biromantic, asexual African-American girl who's crushing on her Asian-American coworker. She works in a library. She fangirls over Dean Winch...

    2.8 stars.[ADDENDUM: THIS REVIEW IS LONG. I had a lot to say. TLDR; The representation is great but I was very bored. BUT if you think the below enumerated list sounds like something you'd like, consider giving this book a try! I think other people might be pulled in where I wasn't.]------------I so so badly wanted to like this, and I'm very sad to have to give it such a low rating. There is A LOT to like:1.

    I want to thank Macmillan US for sending me this copy of Let’s Talk about Love, this hadn’t influenced my rating/review in any way.Check out my review and a discussion on reviewing diverse books on my blog here- This book is lots of fluff. I mean it. Think about the fluffiest book you’ve ever read. Okay. Now multiplicate this by 100 and you get this book. So fluffy.- Diversity is important in this book. Alice is asexual, biromantic and a bl...

    I shouldn’t rate this book because it’s too close and it hurt me too much for me to see it clearly. But I rated it anyway because even though I primarily hate it for personal and petty reasons, there are plenty of things about it that are bad despite my personal feelings.__________________________________I hate this book. I hate it because it’s like every stereotype in every YA contemporary ever mashed together. I hate it because it reads l...

    The fact that this is a book about an asexual biromantic black woman finding her happily ever after is so incredibly special and wonderful and I wish there were more books like this.This book made me so incredibly happy. I loved Alice and Takumi together. Their dynamics are amazing, the way they tease each other, watch movies together and cook food for each other is the cutest thing, and I had a big grin on my face while reading their scenes. The...

    As an asexual person I relate to this book so, so much. It felt so true and real and I have this huge amount of love for the story, the characters, the relationships, everything. I really needed to read a book like that, diverse and funny, and realistic and cute and so relatable.

    "A" is for Asexual Alice! This book was truly amazing! Alice was goofy, awkward and such an overthinker. Her character was relatable and loveable. At times she could be whiny and dramatic. But I still loved that about her because it made her that much more realistic. Black queer woman? ✔Realistic, respectful representation? ✔Interesting characters and plot? ✔Realistic rep of friendship? ✔This book was fun, adorable and informative. It bri...

    “It was not her job to be prepared to educate or enlighten – it was a kindness.” 4 stars TW:n/aread full review here*full review include favorite quotes and a spoiler section The Writing This one of my favorite aspects of this book. It’s so rich and Kann uses so many wonderfully delicious metaphors to describe everything and I love it so much. It kind of reminded me of Tahereh Mafi’s writing, but a more toned down version of it.

    Ah, what can I say? Never before have I wanted to rate a book 3.5 stars more than now. I don’t do .5 ratings because Goodreads and Amazon don’t work that way, but if I could I would’ve for this novel. Let’s Talk About Love is everything the book promises to be – it’s about Alice, an asexual main character who is trying to figure out her sexuality, her future, and how everything in her life fits into who she is becoming.I think I’m g...

    I really liked this book, there are some things that I think are somewhat cliché, but still it was fun to read, I also think that for someone like me, who didn't know much about asexuality was also very informative, which is great ! I appreciate the representations and the honesty of the characters4/5 StarsYou can find this one and more of my reviews on my blog A Book. A Thought.

    Actual Review :I'm gonna be honest with everyone, I just couldn't get into this book. I'm not sure if it's because of the clichés throughout this book or if it's because of the writing style. For some reason, I just couldn't keep reading it. I find myself putting it down, trying to read it, and putting it down again.I'm not sure if I'm getting too old for YA, or if this book just wasn't for me. It didn't floor me, I just didn't have fun reading ...
