My Oxford Year Reviews
Still gobsmacked, need to process before writing a coherent review.
Heads up people: if you look at this cover and think it will be a fun, light, chick flick read....you’re wrong. Prior to reading this novel, that was my exact impression from judging by the cover (do not do that).
This book. Oh, this book. I seriously do not think this book will get the credit or acknowledgment or praise that it deserves solely because of how lighthearted it looks from the outside. This story is way more than ‘lighthearted’ and surpassed all my expectations.

Honestly, this was fantastic! I just really loved everything about this delightful story. I know Julia Whelan from her work as a narrator so I was really curious about this book as soon as I saw it.

"Love. That’s my choice. "
If you read the blurb, then you know this is going to be a tear jerker at some point. How you might say? Jojo Moyes and Nicholas Sparks names are mentioned in it. That's enough, don't you think?
Yet, I must have missed it since I wasn't prepared.
What I can say about My Oxford Year without spoiling it for you? I will tell you that I loved it. Yes, at some point I was crying. It was inevitable. But, at the end of the day, I was pleasantly surprised by it.

This is the kind of book you talk about until you find another that meets its equal. The kind you beg others to read, to cry over, to hope they adapt it into a movie. The kind that inspires you to go on an adventure, make new friends & fall in love.
❝But if you love someone, and are loved by someone, you might find forever after. Whatever and wherever that is.❞
I absolutely loved this book and will probably be talking about this book for a while.
