I have a soft spot for college stories and found families, which made this book my cup of tea. I really enjoyed how varied the personalities were within their friend group, and how different each narrator’s thoughts and struggles were between each story as well. It almost felt like 3 separate genres, and I felt myself having to reboot a bit between POV changes. I particularly liked the last story, and the change in storytelling was really fun and kept things fresh on every page. I wouldn’t mind ...more

There is something so sweet about stories following the real problems of college students. Stories don't always have to be these incredibly dramatic things that we consume, sometimes they can be sad and wholesome. But most importantly, I love seeing characters accept their existence and what that means to the world they're trying to fit into. I love this book 💖 ...more

If I could give this 6 stars, I absolutely would.

The story follows the lives of 4 college friends and as you read it, you will become increasingly convinced the author has lived their experiences because of how true they ring. The conflicts are real and reflect the genuine struggles of young adults being given their first taste of freedom while juggling their studies, families, personal identities, internal battles etc.

The dialogue is witty and fun and the stories never drag (you're definitely

I've read a lot of books set in college, and I have my own experiences as a college student to compare them to. And none of those books have held a candle to Less Than Three's masterful, delicate portrayal of college life.

We're told the stories of three people in a friend group, allowed to interpret the stories of the others through the narrators' eyes and little details which, while mentioned in passing, end up being crucial to form a bigger picture. Belog paints a complex emotional picture for

A heartwarming (<3) collection of three stories following a group of five friends in their first year at college and the personal challenges they face*

The cast are a fun mix, with some entertaining dialogue and great interactions/relationships. While each of the three stories primarily focuses on one or two of them, all five appear to greater or lesser extent throughout, so you get continued investment in all of them even if you're done with 'their' story.

(*While I can't personally speak to the

These three stories are delightful. A beautiful snapshot into the lives of the five characters, complete with the terrible decisions that we've probably all made during our time at uni. The characters and their friendships are really well written, and the struggles they're going through are super recognisable.
Well worth reading this book!
