The Plot (from Goodreads):

Barrett Bloom is hoping college will be a fresh start after a messy high school experience. But when school begins on September 21st, everything goes wrong. She’s humiliated by the know-it-all in her physics class, she botches her interview for the college paper, and at a party that night, she accidentally sets a frat on fire. She panics and flees, and when she realizes her roommate locked her out of their dorm, she falls asleep in the common room.

The next morning, Barrett’s perplexed to find herself back in her dorm room bed, no longer smelling of ashes and crushed dreams. It’s September 21st. Again. And after a confrontation with Miles, the guy from Physics 101, she learns she’s not alone—he’s been trapped for months.

When her attempts to fix her timeline fail, she agrees to work with Miles to find a way out. Soon they’re exploring the mysterious underbelly of the university and going on wild, romantic adventures. As they start falling for each other, they face the universe’s biggest unanswered question yet: what happens to their relationship if they finally make it to tomorrow?

The Review: 

Who has two thumbs and doesn’t read book descriptions? That’s right, me. This book was recommended to me by a close Booksta friend, and I’ve loved RLS’s past reads so I never read anything else about it. I wasn’t expecting a Groundhog Day story! I guess I should have known from the title, now that I think about it…

Unsurprisingly, I loved it. It was just so fun to read. I loved both bubbly, unfiltered Barrett and grumpy, quiet Miles. They were the perfect pair of opposites, and their banter was unmatched. Their relationship was so sweet and wholesome that the reader just can’t help but root for them.

It takes a lot of skill to keep a time loop from getting too repetitive (while still conveying the characters’ own frustration). RLS did an amazing job of keeping it interesting, especially through Barrett’s fun little escapades. I adored the scenes where they stopped trying to break the curse and just made the best of their situation.

I can’t wait for Rachel’s next book! She certainly has become an auto-buy author for me.
