I am honestly so upset that I do not have an actual advanced copy of The Best Laid Plans by Cameron Lund. This, by far, has been the absolute best chapter sampler I have gotten to date. I didn’t spend a lot of time reading the first six chapters of The Best Laid Plans, but to this book’s credit, it didn’t even take that long to have me entirely hooked.
Basically, I’m already in love with this story and I am desperate for more.
I don’t really have high expectations for contemporary novels since they’re not always my favorite. It is very possible, however, that The Best Laid Plans may end up being my favorite novel of 2020. I’m only six chapters in and I’m already raving about it.
There’s a lot to be said for novels with great characters. The Best Laid Plans has phenominal characters. Keely and her friends are some of the most realistic and brilliantly written characters I’ve had the pleasure to read in quite a while. I instantly found myself thoroughly invested in both hers and Andrew’s lives, eager to devour every page as I went through them.
Listen, I can say unquestionably right now that the writing and characterization in this book is amazing. So amazing, in fact, that I just about cried when I realized that the book won’t be released for another 9 days.
This wait may kill me.
I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
