Quick Review: The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

5/5 stars!

I’m sure my words won’t give this book enough credit because my thoughts were still incoherent after reading this book but trust me when I say this is such a good read because it helped me get through my postpartum phase and that’s saying a lot.

I love how it tackled so many meaningful themes about grief, solid friendships, trying something new. I love that the narrative is nerdy and relatable with abundant literature references. I love the natural development of the relationships in the story. Honestly, I just love everything about it. Soon, I’ll reread this and hopefully come up with a better review.

Just some of the wonderful excerpts from the book:

“Handing someone else the only set of keys to your happiness- it seemed like too much to part with, even for love.”

“In friendship, we are all debtors. We all owe each other for a thousand small kindnesses, for little moments of grace in the chaos.”

“With true friends, no one is keeping score. But it still feels good to repay them- even in the tiniest increments.”

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
