A Little Something Different is a love story told through fourteen different onlookers. None of the narrators are directly involved in the romance, but are friends of Lea and Gabe (who are the couple), teachers, barristas , and even the park bench and squirrel on their college campus, who observe the two love-birds and narrate the romance.
This book definitely was different than your run-of-the-mill cutesy romance. Never directly hearing the thoughts of either of the main characters was a very interesting experience that really added to the suspenseful wait for these two to just get together already. This book was cute and heartwarming and full of smile and giggle worthy moments.
This was a great book to pick up right after finals and to start off my winter break. It was such a quick read, and near the middle of the book I really got sucked in and found myself laughing out loud a few times. I thought the characters and situations were very real, and although you don't get to know any single character inside and out, that doesn't seem to hinder the story or the entertainment value of this novel.
This would be a great Valentine's Day read or gift, or something to pick up mid-semester when you're swamped with required heavy reading.
So tell me, what's your favorite cutesy all full romance?
