Hi friends! I recently finished listening to The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez via my local library and let me just say, it was definitely a top favorite for me! I have seen this book floating around bookstagram for quite sometime, but A L W A Y S put it off because of how hyped it was. (do you ever push back reading a book because of how many people are talking about it?) I guess I do this because I do not want to be disappointed in a book that so many people have loved, but it definitely was one that was memorable and will be in my top five favorite reads of 2020!
One thing that I am big on is how well an author develops each character and Abby Jimenez did a fantastic job. I was able to feel as if I were right there in the story and the characters were all my good friends. Seriously, I am a sucker for books that can do that! I think what I loved most about the book is how Jimenez was able to show the main characters worth and how she would come to realize that she should not settle for mediocre and go for something that would be far more extraordinary. Overall, the story was swoon worthy, the friendships were the best, it made you laugh, it made you cry, it made you angry, but best of all it was the perfect love story. I would highly recommend that you pick this up if you haven’t already and believe me, you are going to pick up book two as soon as you are done!
