Hii everyone! Today’s my stop on the book tour of This Is All Your Fault by Amina Mae Safi. The tour is being hosted by Hear Our Voices Book Tours. I’ll be sharing my review on the book as well. 💜
Book : This Is All Your Fault
Author : Aminah Mae Safi
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Release Date: October 13, 2020
Genre: Y/A Fiction
Rinn Olivera is finally going to tell her longtime crush AJ that she’s in love with him.
Daniella Korres writes poetry for her own account, but nobody knows it’s her.
Imogen Azar is just trying to make it through the day.
When Rinn, Daniella, and Imogen clock into work at Wild Nights Bookstore on the first day of summer, they’re expecting the hours to drift by the way they always do. Instead, they have to deal with the news that the bookstore is closing. Before the day is out, there’ll be shaved heads, a diva author, and a very large shipment of Air Jordans to contend with.
And it will take all three of them working together if they have any chance to save Wild Nights Bookstore.
This Is All Your Fault was a combination of all my favorite things – bookstores, strong female friendships and relatable characters. It was a beautifully written novel. I fell in love with the book’s cover when I stumbled upon it last year, and it has been on my (larger than life) tbr pile ever since, I’m so glad that I finally got the chance to read it.
The book started off slowly – I think the author did that on purpose so that we could connect with the characters on a deeper level, and well it worked! The story swiftly shifts between the POVs of Daniella, Rinn and Imogen. I loved reading about them and knowing about their personal struggles. I think there’s something really fascinating about books which explore events happening in just one day. There were a lot of things happening in the story, but I loved how everything worked out in a proper pace in This Is All Your Fault. Daniella, Rinn and Imogen were three very different people, but their love for the Wild Nights Bookstore created such a strong bond between them. Seeing them work hard together to save the indie bookstore – a place they think of as home, made my heart melt.
I really appreciated how the book had such a diverse cast of characters. The mental health representation was perfectly written as well. There was also a mysterious touch to the story which made the book unputdownable. I couldn’t wait to see how everything turned out in the end.
