The Weekend Aesthetic is a feature where I post book aesthetics on the weekend. They might be of a book I’m currently reading, recently read, or read a long time ago.
Rowan and Neil have been academic rivals since their freshman year of high school . . . when Neil won an essay contest. Throughout the years they’ve tried to one-up each other in class projects, student council elections, test scores, and even gym class. After Neil is named valedictorian on their last day of high school, Rowan realizes she has one last chance to beat him—at the senior class assassin/scavenger hunt game. But everything changes when they unexpectedly team up . . .
This 24 hours, rivals-to-lovers rom-com is SO FUN, and I loved every second of it! Even though this takes place on the last day of school, Rachel Lynn Solomon captures Rowan and Neil’s four-year rivalry so clearly. Throughout the novel, there’s lists, emails, and text messages from the present day but also from past that help unfold their story. It felt like I had known these characters for years. Their banter is A+ and I was eagerly waiting for them to finally figure out their feelings and relationship. Today Tonight Tomorrow is also very much a love letter to Seattle, and I loved exploring the city through Rowan and Neil’s eyes as they completed the class scavenger hunt. If you love rivals-to-lovers rom-coms, this is a must-add to your TBRs! Read my full review here.

The Hating Game meets Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by way of Morgan Matson in this unforgettable romantic comedy about two rival overachievers whose relationship completely transforms over the course of twenty-four hours.
Today, she hates him.
It’s the last day of senior year. Rowan Roth and Neil McNair have been bitter rivals for all of high school, clashing on test scores, student council elections, and even gym class pull-up contests. While Rowan, who secretly wants to write romance novels, is anxious about the future, she’d love to beat her infuriating nemesis one last time.
Tonight, she puts up with him.
When Neil is named valedictorian, Rowan has only one chance at victory: Howl, a senior class game that takes them all over Seattle, a farewell tour of the city she loves. But after learning a group of seniors is out to get them, she and Neil reluctantly decide to team up until they’re the last players left—and then they’ll destroy each other.
As Rowan spends more time with Neil, she realizes he’s much more than the awkward linguistics nerd she’s sparred with for the past four years. And, perhaps, this boy she claims to despise might actually be the boy of her dreams.
Tomorrow…maybe she’s already fallen for him.
