Book Review: London Belongs to Us by Sarra Manning12:30 PM
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I was craving something light after reading lots of fantasy, so I decided to read this one. I wasn't expecting much, other than sight seeing around London, but this book is so much more than that!
The characters are amazing. I love seeing Sunny's growth throughout the story, realizing how everyone walks over her all the time to stand up for herself all the time! I also love knowing all the side characters, but I wish they're more explored. I love the Godards, how they argue all the time and Jean Luc (maybe) pretending to not speaking English, but Vic is being a jerk near the end, and the romance at the end of the book really threw me off, because I can't see the sign and chemistry at all. I was like, "since when??"
I love how funny this book is. There are a lot of moments that I just laugh out loud, even though it's in the middle of the night. Sunny is such a funny narrator. I love the charts that is provided within the book, it's just added more fun and unique-ness to the book! Sunny is also a proud Londoners, and we could see how she love London from the ways she looks at things and defend it when the Godards insulted it.
Overall, I really loved it! It's such a fun and light read that would take you on a trip around London, and make you share some Londoners pride that Sunny has.
