Review of I Loved You First by Reena Jacobs

I Loved You First

My best friend was more than just a best friend to me. Three words summed it up: I heart him. I’d never tell him though. I wasn’t stupid. Besides, what he’d told no one, but me, was a little something I wished I could forget… or ignore. He was gay. I guess gay wouldn’t be bad if I wasn’t so in love with him. Now it was just cruel. 

Stereotypes run amok in this college love story: Parties, alcohol, hookups, and breakups. Alexandria Carmichael may find it a bit much as she deals with the unreturned love from the boy who completes her. When all is revealed, not only does she risk losing her best friend forever, but also herself. Without her childhood companion for support, Alexandria takes a journey of self-discovery but fears what she’ll find at the end.

My Thoughts
As again with most of my books this is my sisters and I got to read it first.. have I ever said thank you to my sister for letting me read most of her books, well I am thank you Leanne aka Magic Of Reading :). The description seems something I don't normally read but yet I wanted to, the cover is really good and simple and sometimes simple is best. So yes I was very excited to read this.

This book got me reading from the first few chapters, I wanted to know how the main character gets on in the book , as if I was hooked to her and wanted to know her every move. The storyline is about friendship and to me holding on to that friendship. Another kind of topic was learning to cope on your own, get your own life and love it without having to do and act on other people. The writing style is simple and it was a very easy read, the font was normal in which I was thankful for because I hate reading small font books but I guess I will have to look forward to that in the future. The POV is with the main girl Alex.

I want to talk about two of characters thw two i feel were the main characters. The main.. main charachter Alexandria Carmichael aka.. Alex, is such a great female character, she is in love.. in love with her best friend, in which she knows.. she knows deep down she willl never have so how to deal with it.. she just stays with him throughout everything. She is caring, understanding and well very lonely to me, other than her best friend she doesnt have other friends. Seth Richards is the other main character, he's gay and he plays baseball in which come with loads of parties. The thing is he's gay and he doesn't want anyone to know.. the only other person who knows is his best friend Alex. I feel he's not a good character to me.. yes he sound yummy and cute but other than that the way he treats Alex and the way he deals with being gay is not good to me. Both characters have flaws which is very realistic in real-life, which makes the story an even better read. 

In this book many things are involved which may be in real life. Many people may be gay and doesn't want anyone to know. But you shouldn't be afraid of who you are and you shouldn't be scared of anyone's reactions. Everyone is different in many ways.. it's the you deal with it, which is what counts.

My overall opinion of this book was it wads a great read and I loved the truth.. the storyline and most of the characters. The setting's were enjoyable and the way it ended was even better.. though it had me in tears. 
I recommend this book to people who read YA and loves a great friendship book. 


P.S..  I am sorry there isn't many book reviews but i go to college as well so I have less time to read. 
I hope the reviews in which I do manage to do are good enough :)
