In a nutshell
I've read one other book by Jessica Brody (52 Reasons to Hate My Father) and really enjoyed her characters. They are the perfect blend of real, snarky, and ever changing. A Week of Mondays was no exception to this formula.
I'm not going to say I didn't go into this thinking it would be WAY similar to another book. I'd like to say that I don't think that after reading this. The only thing I can say that was more or less similar was the "reliving the same day day over and over again*
The book is broken down into 7 Mondays, and at the end of each Monday we get a chapter that takes us back to how Ellie met Tristan which I really found interesting because we learned how they became a couple.
As I said up top I love her characters. They are flawed, and that makes them a bit more relatable to me.
I believe that Ellie learns something new each Monday that she lives, and despite almost always getting dumped she becomes more aware of who she is and what she has.
Owen is that best friend who secretly has a crush on Ellie. I love these type of best friends because at first they may seem unimportant but in the end they become something. They sometimes have it harder then the MC and still remain grounded (usually).
I loved the ending it definitely had the HEA that I love to see, but it did it so easily after the the crazy week of Mondays Ellie went through. It wasn't explained as to why or how it happened. I know that sometimes it doesn't need that, but I'm curious.
