I'm not a fan. The first read is good, but he literally just reuses the same main characters that are moody, angsty and "intelligent" (more like pretentious) that fall in some type of teenage love. Idk, it feels like he writes the same story with different details because he knows it'll sell to a certain group of people. Which is cool, not everyone likes the same things.
