Although I’m currently in a post-YALC haze, I do have a ginormous pile of new books to attack, the first of which I just finished for the 2017 Reading Challenge. Typically, I opt to read the ARCs first, because there’s nothing quite like discovering a new favourite book before it is officially released, and that’s exactly what I did today.
Title: 36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You
Author: Vicki Grant
Category: #16 A book that’s published in 2017
“Everyone’s idea of ordinary is different. We’re individuals. Different circumstances. Different influences.”*
When Hildy decides to step outside her comfort zone, she signs up for a psychology study (about falling in love with a stranger) at her university. Although at first reluctant to participate, figuring that she has nothing to lose, she agrees and jumps in at the deep end. Her ‘partner’ is everything Hildy isn’t attracted to, with the exception of his dashing good looks; as a result, neither believe the experiment will be a success.
Written in an interesting manner, with each question marking the beginning of a new chapter, this is a fast-paced and original contemporary. Both characters were interesting, but the plot isn’t as well developed as it could have been.

Unquestionably, this was the perfect post-YALC read. Following such an exhausting weekend I needed something light and quick to whizz through, so I’m very happy that I won this particular ARC in a Hot Key giveaway. Also, given that I had never heard of the author before, I was suitably impressed by such an innovative read.
