I was hoping to get a quick YA romance fix from Seven Days of You and that’s exactly what I got. It’s got one of my favorite tropes-friends to lovers although it’s a bittersweet story because Sophia is bound to move out of Tokyo to New Jersey and is about to leave her friends and her potential more than a friend behind.
I enjoyed the tour around Tokyo, the descriptions of notable places around the City, including the food although I honestly think the author could have exhausted the setting better to make it really feel like Tokyo. It’s not like I know better but I just feel like there’s more to the city than just the popular places, most I already know of.
The narrative is playful and emotional at the same time, a bit dramatic to be honest at times but it’s still quite entertaining. Sophia is a sympathetic character and her personal struggles are quite relatable. The rest of the characters are also memorable. The conclusion although is indefinite makes the reader hope that there’s a possibility for Sophia and her possibly more than friend.
