The Geography of You and Me
by Jennifer E. Smith
Page Amount: 337, US Hardback
This book was exactly what I expected when I picked up this book. I knew it was going to be more character heavy than plot heavy, because that's what all romance stories are. However, when I first started this book, I was blown away. I absolutely love how Owen and Lucy met in a stopped elevator. It was romantic and believable. No trace of insta love in this book! Lucy and Owen's relationship started out very slowly, even though the connection was present from the start. I really liked how Smith didn't rush their relationship, it made their connection flourish with each postcard exchanged.
This book also talks a lot about long distance relationships, whether they be romantic or just friendly. Every place Lucy and Owen visited or moved to they sent one another a postcard from said place. I found this to be absolutely adorable. I was swooning during the entire first quarter of this book. The chemistry between the two was so powerful, I couldn't help but root for their relationship even when every odd was against them. This book may not be plot heavy, but the relationships within this book, whether they be between Owen and Lucy or Owen and his dad, made this book a worthwhile and emotional read.
