UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT: ABBI GLINES REVIEW

Hey guys! Today we’re going to be discussing Until Friday Night. I just finished this one last night, and it was absolutely spectacular. I’ve read my fair share of Abbi’s books, and this one has definitely climbed up to one of my most favorites.

To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

Rating: 5/5 STARS

Let me just start off by saying that this book is absolutely amazing. I loved the characters, the dialogue, everything that happened within the plot, anything and everything that you could list off, was so well done in this book. On top of being amazingly well written, the cover of this book is so beautiful. The coloring is perfect, and it makes me like the book anymore.

The characters in this book are so interesting and well written. Maggie was such a unique character, and she was definitely more than she seemed on the surface. She was just the kind of friend West needed, and she was able to get him to open up when no one else was able to. West was such a charming southern boy (obviously this is one of the best kind, right?).  He started out the book pushing Maggie away, but when he finally realized what a great support system she could be, he wised up. In this book, Maggie and West have this friendship that allows them to help each other in countless ways. I absolutely loved that aspect, and with it, watching the two fall in love was so perfect and well done. As I was reading this one, I was getting so giddy, which is normal for me, however this book brought it out especially. I feel like this is one of those stories that makes you want to fall in love, and I was swooning so hard, which was great.

Along with all of these great feelings this book gives though, there are definitely some parts that are heartbreaking. Both characters have some really heart wrenching events that they have/are going through. There were multiple parts over the course of this book that made me tear up, and these characters latch onto your heart, making their pain even worse. This book is written in dual perspective like most of Abbi’s books, which worked well because it gave us insight into how both characters were feeling throughout the whole novel.

I absolutely without a shadow of a doubt recommend this book. It is such an amazing book, and these characters are the type that you get really attached to and fall in love with. If you like books with romance and a lot of heart, definitely give Until Friday Night a chance.

Happy Reading!
