“If you drop the weight you are carrying, it is okay. You can build yourself back up out of the pieces.”

🌟 I have been thinking how to review and rate this since I have finished it and I decided that writing my thoughts might help me in the final say about this book.

🌟 I also should say that I added this as a recommendation and then kind of lost interest in it but then was in the mood to read it again which I did!

🌟 I am always complaining in my reviews about books with slow pacing. This did not have slow-pacing, on the contrary the pacing is fast which should have been great for me but my problem is that this fast pacing along with the format of the story did not just work for me!

🌟 The chapters are very short and are like snapshots in the 2 MC life and that made it hard for me to relate to any of the characters. I think my problem is the characters, I did not know what they were doing half of the time, I didn’t know what was their relation to each other and then everything felt scattered to me after that. When I finished I was like “OK?!” and the whole thing didn’t click for me.

🌟 Summary: I don’t know where things went wrong or If it is a case of “me not the book” problem. I was disappointed although the book had some snapshots that I liked. I see many positive reviews which is cool and I am happy other can relate and like this book. I just didn’t like the characters, their relation and the outcome! I wish I could say that I liked this more… I am giving it 2.5 out of 5 stars!

  1. This book has been everywhere lately. I kind of didn’t understand the hype. 😶Although admittedly I haven’t read it and know nothing about it. Something about the cover just didn’t appeal to me. 🤦‍♀️🙈😅
