Review: One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid


I don’t know why I subject myself to these emotionally tormenting kinds of reads. But to get a chance to read the POV of Helen Hunter, the wife in ‘Cast Away’, is an opportunity I wouldn’t want to miss. So yeah, it was emotionally exhausting, it’s angsty, sometimes it’s annoying the wayย Emma‘s feelings is like a tennis ball going back and forth betweenย Jesseย andย Sam‘s court.

But the thing is I could not seem to judge her or hate her because it’s completely impossible to imagine what it would be like to be in her shoes. It was easier for Helen Hunt because she was already married and already with a child by the time Tom Hanks returned. But Emma and Sam are only engaged when Jesse returned.

At the surface, it seems like an easy decision but it really isn’t and I could definitely feel Emma’s impossible struggle. I would take either one of the men in Emma’s life but I’m already happily married so I can’t even be helpful. Lol. Jesse and Sam are two perfectly great guys making them honestly unbelievable because they couldn’t possibly exist. Lol. But in the end, Emma’s choice does make sense.ย  Now I need me a really funny read.

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! ;)
