Rating: 4 out of 5.

Our own queen of Booktube, Christine Riccio, released a book back last May, and I finally got around to reading it. There was time travel, it was college, it was a friend group falling apart, lies, secrets, and we have a love triangle…sort of. There was so much going on one in this book but in a good way! I really enjoyed this Again, but Better, and it was a pretty quick read!

Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal—but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that? Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change—there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure! Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.

This was a charming book! I really felt like this book was relatable, our main character was a book lover and a writer. Most books have references to made up books or the classics, but not one. We are talking about Cassondra Clare and so many Harry Potter references! We even have the importance of a laptop, which I can’t live without mine! I really like the Again, but Better because we have a character who wasn’t happy with her life, so did something about it and it blew up in her face, and she couldn’t fix it. It feels like this is what really happens in life, and I really appreciate that. I mean, not all of us can go back in time to get a second chance, but it’s a book. The love triangle we had actually had me going crazy if we want to even consider it a love triangle. I really was mad, and it was so wrong, I won’t go into too many details, but if you know, you know.

I really suggest reading this Again, but Better. It is a quick read, and it’s so good! The only reason I am giving it four stars is because I feel like there was something that needed to be added to the book.
