The Beauty of the Moment ~ Blog Tour

Hello readers! I know it's been quite some time, but today I am excited to announce that I was apart of the The Beauty of the Moment Blog Tour hosted by the lovely people over at Penguin Teen Canada. Today on my stop I will be sharing with you my review and a brief excerpt. Enjoy!

Title: The Beauty of the Moment
Author: Tanaz Bhathena
Publication Date: Feburary 26th, 2019
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Pages: 354 pages
Format: Hardcover recieved from Penguin Teen Canada
Description: Susan is the new girl—she’s sharp and driven, and strives to meet her parents’ expectations of excellence. Malcolm is the bad boy—he started raising hell at age fifteen, after his mom died of cancer, and has had a reputation ever since.
Susan’s parents are on the verge of divorce. Malcolm’s dad is a known adulterer.
Susan hasn’t told anyone, but she wants to be an artist. Malcolm doesn’t know what he wants—until he meets her.
Love is messy and families are messier, but in spite of their burdens, Susan and Malcolm fall for each other. The ways they drift apart and come back together are testaments to family, culture, and being true to who you are.

 The Beauty of the Moment is a really good book. The storyline is brilliant, with an easy to follow plot line. The characters are also equally amazing, with really great development as the storyline. 

The romance in this stroy is also just enough, with not feeling overwhelming or groan worthy. I found myself squealing often and at almost every scene. I think what I enjoyed the most is the idea that this book contained everything in regards to budding romances. It included the heartbreak, but also the love involved.

Overall I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has read Tanaz Bhathena's other story. I would also highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweeping, coming-of-age romcom that will surely entice you.
