One of the funniest, most beautiful and most inspiring stories I’ve ever read about coping with grief and falling in love, about discovering oneself, strengthening the bond of friendship and sisterhood, and realizing who your genuine family is. I now clearly understand why so many of my friends have fallen in love with this book. I undeniably have as I have gone through all the symptoms of falling madly in love with a book.
♣ Inability to put the book down.
♣ Grinning like a buffoon and snorting at the imagery and metaphors most wittingly used by the author.
“An army of ninja-cupids who must have been hiding out in the canopy draw their bows and release-arrows fly at me from every which way.”
♣ Satisfying positive emotions welling up and threatening to pour out of the chest (Husband may have earned more than the usual dose of hugs and kisses. Too much information? Sorry. Lol!)
♣ Multitasking (grabbing a pen and the special notebook while holding the book to copy all those beautiful lines worth remembering)
♣ Being surprised with the writing technique and creativity.
♣ Wiping a few tears but definitely not bawling out.
♣ That wild spark in my brain brought about by the connection between the story and the cover and title.
♣ That inexplicable need to read every word written by the author up to the Acknowledgement and the About the Author part.
♣ Thinking about already rereading the book even before finishing it.
♣ The need to know about the other books written by the author and the overpowering urge to have them.
♣ Hugging the book to your chest after finishing and staring at nothingness with heart eyes.
♣ Inability to formulate proper speech, ergo a proper review.^^
P.S. I never thought I’d like any male character who bats his eyelashes so much until Joe Fontaine . Lol.
