My Rating:
Synopsis: Dani can’t wait for senior year at college. A straight-A scholar whose anxiety is a daily struggle, being awkward, introverted, and studious has become a way of life. She vows this year will be different. It’s time to move beyond her comfort zone, but that’s not easy. Dani’s wild roommate and handsome best friend hate each other; her crazy family won’t leave her alone; and a new job forces her to be social. Unfortunately, when college romance finally calls, Dani is unable to answer thanks to a stalker who has her all tied up. Can she stay alive long enough to find love and graduate?

My Review

Twelve Months of Awkward Moments is a unique addition to the new adult genre. Dani is a smart girl who has anxiety. As someone who struggles with anxiety on a daily basis, I could easily relate to what she was going through, and I thought the author did a good job at capturing those feelings. The supporting cast of characters including her roommate, her best friend, and mother are also realistic and well-written. Dani has bad luck when it comes to men, and now she has a stalker. There was a good amount of suspense over who the stalker was, the author doing an excellent job at keeping us on our toes about who it could be. Poor Dani has had interactions with a lot of creeps. The plot was fast paced and the mystery kept me turning the pages. However, I was disappointed about how the stalker situation was resolved and the lack of a solid romantic relationship, but it did have a satisfying ending. The Verdict: Overall, I think Twelve Months of Awkward Moments is a fast-paced romantic suspense that I think fans of new adult novels will enjoy.

  7. Wow, didn't expect there to be a stalker in the story mainly because of the innocent cover. Strange. I get anxious a lot if I let myself dwell on things so reading books with an anxious MC might not be the best idea lol.
