What is it about?(summary of GoodReads)

Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.
Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.
But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?
Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.
Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.
But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?
What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?
What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?
But what if it is?

What I thought:

So I had really high expectations for this book, since I’ve loved every Becky Albertalli book so far! I’ve never read a book from Adam Silvera before, was not really planning on reading any of his books, but I’ve heard good things!

BUT it was actually not as good as I thought. It was not a bad book, and I enjoyed my time listening to it. It was a cute story and all, but I did not care that much for the characters. Especially Ben, I just didn’t care about his summer school and his struggles. Actually did not care that much about Arthur’s struggles either, but he was kinda cute.

I expected more sexy times I guess, and there just was so much background and talking and other friends. Actually I think Dylan was my favourite character..

IDK how to explain, this book was just not as good as I expected, but also not bad!

Come talk to me?

Have you read this book? What were your feelings?
