Book Overview

Every wallflower blooms at their own perfect time, but some like quirky Lo, take longer than others.

Lo is a sheltered 20-year-old who loves baking, manga/anime, and octopi. When she spots her college swim team’s tryout flyer sporting her favorite sea creature, an octopus she knows it’s a sign that she must join the Flying Octopi. The only things standing her way are her social awkward nature and the fact that she just learned to swim.

Will Lo find her place to shine or will her social anxiety DQ her dreams?

Late Bloomer is a new adult novel that is a cross between Bridget Jones’s Diary, Baywatch and Kuragehime.

Book Review

The Diary of a Late Bloomer is a clean slow burn romance that will warm your heart.

The story is told in the format of diary entries written by the POV character, each day for five months, which felt unique but as a reader it interrupted my flow of reading.

It was enjoyable watching Lo’s character grow, to see her stop making excuses and start moving forward with her life. I did find it hard to power through some areas because Lo seems to waste so much of her time being down on herself.

If you’re looking for a light-hearted read then I suggest you pick up this book!
