Seventeen-year-old Daphne Bowman, a bookish drama nerd in public school, might never have crossed paths with Oliver, the popular, outgoing mascot for his private school’s football team, but one event has bound them inextricably. Daphne’s older sister, Emily, and Oliver’s older brother, Jason, who were high school sweethearts, committed suicide together seven years earlier.

When Daphne uncovers Emily and Jason’s bucket list—a list comprised of their “Top Ten” places to visit before they die—she knows she has to tell someone. The one person who might actually get what she’s going through and who might not think it’s silly that she wants to complete the list, is also someone she’s never spoken to—Oliver Pagano. Throwing caution to the wind, Daphne sends Oliver a Facebook message that will come to change the course of both of their senior years—and maybe their entire lives.

Tackling grief with a wry voice and an unflinching eye, So Glad to Meet You tells the story of two people who, in searching for what they’ve lost, end up finding what they never knew they needed—each other.

  • Even though this book wasn’t amazing, it was really cute and THE COVER.
  • I may have thing for maps c:
  • The part that wasn’t really amazing was the prose itself.
  • it just didn’t flow, it was hard to just lose myself in it
  • but
  • We get POV from Oliver & Daphne!

3 Bouquet

  • I cannot handle just one POV anymore. Because I’m constantly wondering what person B is thinking and it kills me slowly.
  • Like with Song of Achilles
  • Do you know how much I wanted to know what Achilles was thinking?????
  • ~i’m a horrible cat leader~
  • Or Joe’s perspective from Wolfsong?
  • I feel 100% cheated when it’s not dual perspective.

3 Bouquet

  • Even though this book deals with suicide, we didn’t really get into the grief aspect of everything, which was disappointing.
  • But also it’s kind of nice to have a book that’s low-key dark.
  • Because sometimes life is low-key dark.
  • But I’ve been really into angsty books.
  • So I wanted more angst. /But what can ya do ya know?/

3 Bouquet

  • Also I adore emotionally detached characters.
  • And Daphne is cute! Did I pretend she was the gorgeous girl from Scooby-Doo the entire time?
  • Of course I did.
  • Also I want my name to be Daphne. Or you can call me Neil Josten. ~ because Neil is very pretty~

Do you love maps? Because book maps are ridiculously satisfying.

Isn’t Daphne an adorable name? What would you like to rename yourself?

    Awww this is such a cute review! I enjoy reading your thoughts as always, and I have to say, I totally agree with with not being able to enjoy handle just one POV anymore; it makes me waaaaay too curious about what the other person is thinking too. (And lol, side note: I would’ve loved to have seen Achilles’ POV in Song of Achilles as well. 😉 ) Fabulous review Malanie! ❤

    Oooh, even though this book wasn’t aMAZING, I still want to read it because now the curiosity is eating away at me! And I must know the ending.😂(This is the trouble with me reading reviews, even if the book isn’t fabulous, I still desperately want to read it because now I have all these unanswered questions about it.)
    And I want to read this for Oliver! Because I love sunshine-y characters DEARLY (Adam from A List of Cages, anyone?)!
