It's a well known fact that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but let's be honest, everybody does it! I am certainly guilty of picking one book over another because of its cover but sometimes what's outside really is what's on the inside and in the case of Our Demons, Best Friends (ODBF) that's definitely true!

"Ava and Sebastian are two medical residents who in a perfect world, would really like each other. But both of them are closely watched by their demons. Their baggage is not light - Ava has hers carefully folded in vacuum bags to occupy as little room as possible; Sebastian wears his like a lead armour that makes him slouch sometimes. They like each other, but how are their demons going to get along?"

So once I got over the beautiful cover of this book I started reading it and I was instantly drawn in. In my opinion, ODBF falls more into the New Adult category as opposed to the Young Adult category, however the angst throughout does give it a YA feel. 

One of the things I love most about this book is the fact that its set in a hospital with all the characters being medical students on their placement. I've never read a story which revolves around people in the medical profession so I found it very exciting and unique. All the characters in this book are extremely likeable; each have their own little quirks and habits similar to real life friend groups which I loved. The reality of the story is really what I enjoyed most about this book, not only were the characters themselves extremely life-like but the main romance between Ava and Sebastian also felt extremely real. Of course there are some moments of fluff and over intensified emotions, but who doesn't want that in a book?! Nothing felt strained and the whole story felt natural. Each chapter was kind of like watching an episode of a TV series for me, with the general story always continuing along with the over-aching 'will they, won't they' problem. 

Overall I found this a truly enjoyable read and I can't wait to pick up Diana's next (and also beautiful) book: Love Me While I'm Gone.
