“You & Me at the End of the World is an epic romance. It’s a book you want to read more than once because it’s so incredibly good.”Cecelia Beckman, Sheaf & Ink
From the Publisher:
This is no ordinary apocalypse…
Hannah Ashton wakes up to silence. The entire city around her is empty, except for one other person: Leo Sterling. Leo might be hottest boy ever not because he’s the only one left, but he’s also too charming, too selfish, and too devastating for his own good, let alone Hannah’s.
Stuck with only each other, they explore a world with no parents, no friends, and no school and realize that they can be themselves instead of playing the parts everyone expects of them. Hannah doesn’t have to be just an overachieving, music-box-perfect ballerina, and Leo can be more than a slacker, 80s-glam-metal-obsessed guitarist. Leo is a burst of honesty and fun that draws Hannah out, and Hannah’s got Leo thinking about someone other than himself for the first time.
Together, they search for answers amid crushing isolation, but while their empty world may appear harmless . . . it’s not. Because nothing is quite as it seems…
And if Hannah and Leo don’t figure out what’s going on, they might just be torn apart forever.
My Review: You & Me at the End of the World
Inception meets More Than Maybe, You & Me at the End of the World is a book that’s brilliantly executed with a romance that will give you all the feels and a bit more.
I absolutely love this book.
Usually, I try to figure out what might be wrong when something is a bit off in a book. You know when you’re reading a mystery novel and you’re making every logical guess the who, what, where, when, and why? Trying to piece together and guess what might be the problem, like a 1,000 piece puzzle.
Well, in this instance, I guessed right, which isn’t often the case. 😂
A Few More Thoughts
Even though I figured out what was happening it didn’t take away from the story. I was intrigued by the apocalypse world created and how Leo and Hannah try to figure out the cause of why they’re alone.
With a slow burn romance readers will be anxious to reach the end to find out what happens.
Because as I inched closer and closer to the end, I was on the edge of my seat, fingers crossed that both these characters we’re given a second chance. That their memories would sync like a song with perfect harmony. A dance with perfect beat.
Beautifully written and utterly relatable when in the crisis of feeling alone (as we all experienced in some way during the pandemic) You & Me at the End of the World is a story that delivers in every possible way.
Happy Reading ̴ Cece
