Once in a Lifetime (Becky)


Loved it! 😍

A book about making music and falling in love, there is nothing better than that!

Firstly, this book is part of a series. I am writing this review before I read Once in a Lifetime (Pete), but from what I understand, it is this story but from Pete's perspective instead of Becky's. Just a heads up, but that's not why we are here, so let's talk about Becky's story.

One of the first things I noticed about this book is that it gave a trigger warning. I cannot express to you how uncommon it is for author's to warn their audience, and I am here for it. There is conversation about abusive relationships, so read at your own discretion. (Personal note: the abuse is mentioned throughout the book, but it is more discussed through the aftereffects that Becky is experiencing. There is only one chapter where the abuse is directly talked about, and even then, it is talked about more abstractly. There is scenes at the end of the book for a different even that takes place, and again, we hear more about the aftermath than the actual situation.)

When I first saw the cover, I immediately knew I needed to be the person to review. It was marketed to me as a young adult book, but from the cover, I could tell that it also involved music, which sign me up! I read it after a rough week, and man, did it make me feel so much better. It is fun, entertaining, and so easy to fall into! I like that each chapter is a day on the tour, and that we get to see how their relationships are formed from not really liking each other to realizing that this is a relationship worth fighting for.

As for you, future reader, I strongly suggest you pick this book up. Ferraz also includes other social media aspects to her book (including a Spotify playlist that I couldn't find, but if anyone can send me that link, I will love you forever), so you can feel connected to the book at every moment. I also think that this book would make a really cool movie one day. I think that this book deserves a 4.5, but for the sake of this review, we are going to mark that as a 4.

During the day, I listen to books while working, and when I come home, I pick up a book and read. I’ve loved books since before I can remember, and I try and make reviews that encourage people to pick up and read for themselves. I try my best to be honest, and I hope that people appreciate that!
