Again, But Better by Christine Riccio

Publication Date: May 21st, 2019

Goodreads Summary
Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal — but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that?

Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change — there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure!

Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.

Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic – the possibilities are endless.


I don’t watch a lot of Booktube, but this book sounds right up my alley. I always thought about doing that year abroad. Unfortunately, I never went through with it. That’s not to say my university experience wasn’t great, it was. Now, Shane sounds like a character I can seriously relate to. It is easy to stick with what you know, and what feels safe, but I’ve found that the most rewarding experiences have been the ones where I’ve taken risks. It’s not always easy, and it can be awkward, but in the long run, it’s worth it. I can’t wait to see where Shane’s journey takes her and how her experiences help shape her.

What’s your most anticipated book?

  1. I love this cover and the concept sounds so good. I really hope it’s well executed. I don’t care for her YT channel – her personality just isn’t for me – but hopefully, this book will be good!

  2. I don’t watch a lot of booktube either so I’m not too familiar with the author, though I know her a little bit. This book sounds REALLY good though, I really love that synopsis and it sounds exactly like the kind of book I’d relate to, too. Thank you for sharing 😀

  3. I don’t watch a lot of Booktube now either, but I used to. I also used to watch a lot of Christine’s videos. This book does sound interesting and like something I would enjoy. I’ll probably pick it up, but it’s not a priority for me (especially since contemporary isn’t a genre I read often). Great post! 🙂

    1. I’ve only seen a few of her videos, but they just weren’t for me. This book does sound awesome though. I’ve got to be in the right mood for contemporary, but it’s one I’ll likely pick up. 😀
