Review (#giftedbook): You’re A Mean One, Matthew Prince

Thanks to NetGalley and SourceBooks Casablanca for this free digital copy in exchange for an honest review. This book is out now!

Cheers to my first holiday read of the year! As soon as I saw the title and cover of Timothy Janovky’s You’re A Mean One, Matthew Prince, that I was going to enjoy it, and I’m so happy this was my intro into this season’s holiday reads.

This book is adorable, charming, and gave me all the holiday warm and fuzzy feelings that I was looking for. I think Janovsky did a wonderful job of making Matthew likable even during the moments when it seemed like he was meant to be unlikable. I just wanted to give him a huge hug and be his friend. His growth is believable and lovely to experience. I was especially appreciative of how much of Matthew’s journey with General Anxiety Disorder is shared and explored. I also really liked that there is no real “villain” in this story…and that’s all I’ll say on that.

Hector and Matthew…so sweet and swoony together!! I loved them and the way they pushed past first impressions in order to get to know each other. There was definitely a little “enemies-to-lovers” going on! This book is full of cute and endearing side characters that enhance Matthew’s story.

This book is for you if…
-you love a satisfactory character arc
-you want a holiday romance
-you love snow
-you want a story with lgbtq+ rep and anxiety disorder rep

Happy Reading!
