Expiration Dates
By Rebecca Serle

Expiration Dates was the first book that I read in 2024 and let me just say that it has set my expectations very high. There’s nothing better than beginning a new year of reading with a five-star novel. I already know that this book will have a place on my list of favorite books of 2024.

I want to simultaneously scream my love for this book from the mountaintops and tiptoe very gently with this review. I definitely don’t want to spoil this wonderful book for any potential readers but do yourself a favor and read this book.

Everything about this book’s synopsis just spoke to me. Every time Daphne meets a potential romantic interest, she receives a random piece of paper with the man’s name and the amount of time that she will be in a relationship with him. Is it a gift or a curse? Some people could argue that it takes the guesswork out of the relationship, you only have to put in as much as it will be worth in the end. But what if you fall in love with someone who you are only destined to be with for a few months? Oh, the heartbreak! Daphne was always waiting for that special paper that didn’t have an expiration date, so when it finally arrived, she was resigned to this new fate.

I loved how the author wrote this novel. I enjoyed going from Daphne’s present-day story to her previous relationships. This gave me an insight into her life and the romantic relationships that she had experienced. I was invested in her story from the very beginning and there were quite a few times where I had no idea where the author was going to take this story, but I was definitely all in for the journey and what a journey it was!

Expiration Dates was everything that I had hoped it would be. It was heartfelt, emotional, and completely captivating. I adored every minute that I spent within its pages.
