Nookietown is another book that I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I picked it up but something about it seemed intriguing and I just love finding something out of the ordinary, I wasn’t disappointed in the least in that aspect. I found it to be quite thought provoking and quite interesting overall. Whether you agree with the characters in this book or are completely against their opinions and actions it leads you to really think just what would I do if I were them?
The story itself is about sex but it’s not overly graphic in nature to where it would be considered erotica either. The characters are all close friends in various types and stages of relationships and places in their own lives. Their interactions are sometimes quite humorous which was fun to read.
There’s also a lot of controversy of course with what is going on so it made for an interesting read, although I do think the ending was a tad predictable with the way the author highlighted certain things in the beginning of the book. Still a good read though and would recommend it.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
