My Rating: 5 stars out of 5
Genre: Contemporary Romance
I solemnly swear to read more books which hold more meaning for me. Which truly touch me and make me think.
Girls always choose men, and men always choose the wrong girls. It’s an endless cycle.
This writer has the ability to truly write my heart. Every mc she creates is instantly me. I see myself in them all. She is wither a wizard or she writes her own heart to relate to other readers. Witch must be incredibly difficult, to pour your heart out for the world to read. when you yourself are the character the story instantly becomes epic. The emotions strong because that is what a book is, an emotion.
“This isn’t a joke, Helena! He’s the love of my life. My soul mate!”
I scrunch up my nose. Hadn’t I read somewhere that there was a difference? (YES in Mud vein)
I don’t even really want to talk about the story. Kit and Helena’s story was amazing though. They were truly so much alike, I think they were both in the process of discovering themselves because of the other and that was truly a beautiful thing. I felt awful for their situation throughout but it made them grow and be adults which is what life is all about. I think if you haven’t already you will love getting to know these two and their weirdness which equals for a great tale, believe me. It’s hard not to fall in love with Kit yourself at the same time Helena does. And it doesn’t happen often where I actually understand why the characters fall in love in the first place, this is a true love story! Not soppy though, I promise.
He looks different, but I know that’s probably not true. My eyes are different. In my eyes kit grows more beautiful every time I see him.
Helena’s character is truly one which makes you feel like she is you, or I am her. Always putting others first and then having a hard time holding her own in the end. The people who you thought were there, just aren’t really. You’re just pretending. I connected with her so hard that I’m going to have a hard time finding a good next read.
I sniff a shirt, and then I sniff it again. The third time I sniff it just to even things out; I like groups of three. (me too girl, me too)
I like how this book didn’t need ‘smut-to-sell’. I think authors feel they need to have lots of sexual scenes in their stories for it to be considered good. That is not true. We as readers care about how you make us feel with your words, with your story, with the characters feelings. That is what’s important to us. I’m all for the smut but a story always has to be meaningful.
Bottom line: one of the best books you will read this year.
Chicks before d*cks. Is that even realistic? Humans seek connection above all else, and we are willing to destroy things to attain it…
