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 ...

    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...

    ”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...

    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,...

    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 am part of the promotional tour for this book! Subscribe to my blog: www.marriedtobooksreviewsandblog.word...I was super excited to learn that I had a place on the tour a few months back, I generally enjoy reading the books that Swoon Reads have published. The website is definitely one of my favourites, just to spend hours searching for stories to read that really captivate you. Let’s Talk About Love certainly did just that. Alice, the main c...

    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.
  • Meagan
    "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...
  • Olivia-Savannah Roach
    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...
  • Claire (bookscoffeeandrepeat)
    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 ...
  • Innastholiel
    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.__________________________________(view spoiler)[I hate this book. I hate it because it’s like every stereotype in every YA contemporary ever mashed together. I hate it bec...
  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)
    It is honestly a shame that I have never seen a book out there like Let’s Talk About Love. The story follows an asexual main character and has a good balance of humour and serious events. I would say that this is both an excellent resource and an excellent story, perfect for those wanting to know more about asexuality.This book tells the story of a biromantic asexual college student figuring out her future. I don’t think I’ve ever read a bo...

    I've heard only amazing things about this book and I'm so happy to say that I was not disappointed at all. Let's Talk About Love is about Alice, a 19 year old struggling to figure out her future, her changing dynamic with her two best friends and trying to understand her feelings for a new co-worker after she swears she's done with dating. It's a wonderful novel that I recommend to everyone not only for the cute romance but for the complex charac...

    The cover! The feels! The #ownvoices! The #representationmatters! The #BlackGirlMagic! My happy dance!!!The glorious fro!!!! The #carefreeblackgirl joy!!! This book should be front and center on every endcap and cash wrap in every single bookstore!!! There should be no excuses for this to not be made into a rom-com starring Keke Palmer and some cute struggling Japanese actor who deserves a chance to become America's new Bae. Hollywood, make it ha...
  • Danielle (Life of a Literary Nerd)
    4.5 Stars “Love shouldn’t hinge solely on exposing your physical body to another person. Love was intangible. Universal. It was whatever someone wanted it to be and that should be respected as such.” This book just made me so happy. I had a massive smile on my face and couldn’t stop giggling. Let’s Talk About Love follows Alice as she’s determines to take a break from romance after her girlfriend breaks up with her when she tells he...

    YOU CAN ALSO FIND MY REVIEW FOR LETS TALK ABOUT LOVE ON MY BLOG, WITH MUCH BETTER FORMATTINGR E V I E WLet’s Talk About Love felt like an important book. I’ve never seen asexuality or being aromantic represented in a book until this one, and it definitely deserves all the hype. I also feel it’s important to mention that the main character is also bisexual, I’m just not sure where else to mention it in this review so here is good. Before t...

    I wrote a 14 tweet thread about my love for this book and I'll be writing some more pieces in the near future about it, but trust that I loved this book, it's a voice-y, fluffy YA contemporary featuring a biromantic asexual black girl who's gotta figure out her future, navigate her evolving friendships, and explore a bit more about where she falls on the spectrum after an event shakes her up. While being a fun romance, it's also incredible repres...

    I only realised I was ace in November 2015, when my friend Lauren introduced me to the community, so I’m fairly new to the concept of asexuality. But then, so is the world. That’s why the asexual community has long been crying out for literature featuring ace characters — the mainstream representation just isn’t there yet. Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann is the first book I’ve read featuring an asexual lead.A black, female, asexu...
