I deliberately took lots of time to read this one because I don't want to rush through it. Reading about grief is painful and real. But helpful. I dont want this book to end yet at the same time I just want to get over with it. Feeling alive.
I totally loved reading this one. As always as is with her books, you get to know the characters like they are real people and you accept them for who they are no matter how flawed they are just like you accept some people as your friends and family just like that.
What I love about Taylor's books: Her imperfectly perfect characters. Realistic and flawed yet inspiring and alive characters!
What I loved about this book: It deals with grief following a sudden death of a loved one in a beautiful, subtle way. The bonding of people through this painful journey. The characters are damn relatable. So many life lessons to be learned. The romance was crazy and so alive. Human relationships and fears are portrayed so well. Emphasis on reading and books well made. (which makes me like her books more! It's either books or music or showbiz)
Why 1 star less: I felt like the book was unnecessarily stretched at some points. The ending was somehow perfect yet imperfect like the characters. I felt it was somehow abrupt. Ana (the main character's best friend) was given so much importance throughout the book yet nothing much was mentioned towards the end of the book.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Made me laugh out loud. Made me cry uncontrollably. Made me sigh. Made me wonder. Made me wish. Made me regret things. Made me alive.
