Be still my beating heart
5+ Emotionally Beautiful Stars!!!!
Show me the shadows that keep you up at night. Kiss me with your darkness
I cannot even begin to describe in words what this book did to me. Miss Cherry you are a horrible person , in the best kind of way. Oh my heart. I cried so many different times, I happy cried, I sad cried but mostly I ugly cried. But it was all OKAY because I also LOL’ed a lot!
Liz and Tristan both experienced such a devastating event. An event that any sane person would be uncomfortable discussing. I say uncomfortable because that is what death does to people. It makes them uncomfortable. Uncomfortable bringing it up in conversation, uncomfortable giving support, and uncomfortable bringing up past memories. I feel that was the beauty in this book. It is something we never like to discuss. We never like to read about. Sadly its there, this book had a magnetic pull on me. I was even uncomfortable reading it. However it needed to be read.
The emotion within the words mesmerized me.
“They loved in a way that made fairy tales envious”
“… but sometimes tomorrow never comes and you’re only left with the memories of yesterdays”
“Maybe the truest form of love grew from the deepest kinds of pain”
AND can I just say (view spoiler) Shoot me. Shoot me now, because that is hands-down the most epic way all time – I Cried like a little baby!!
Oh a lighter note – Do we not just absolutely LOVE Faye? My friends and I have had similar conversations and I always leave feeling lighter. “No, no I heard you the first time. Liz are you fucking a guy with a green penis? Because if you are, you need a tetanus shot…. And higher standards” BAHAHAHAHAHAHA I love her.
Tanner, I mean. He always made me feel icky. I honestly though had no idea how that plot was going to thicken. Holy Shit. My stomach was in knots, I neglected to feed my child, shower, prep Easter Dinner, and do my dishes simply because I was so hooked to this book. (Don’t judge me. I know you have all been there)
