{Review} All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover

 

about the book

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us—whose writing is “emotionally wrenching and utterly original” (Sara Shepard, New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars series)—delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.

Quinn and Graham have a perfect love story, but their unique connection is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart, day by heartbreaking day. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair. So do they risk it? Is their history worth saving?

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple struggling with a relatable issue – infertility – whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. In Colleen Hoover’s inimitable style and brilliant narrative voice, this heartbreaking page-turner asks: Can a resounding love with a fairytale beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

My Thoughts

Saying marriage is hard is an understatement, and there are often times of heartache that are not always easy to survive. Colleen tells the story of a couple deeply in love and trying to survive the biggest crisis of their marriage. Although I personally have never dealt with infertility, it didn’t make the story any less relatable and real and heartbreaking. It was like I was right there with Quinn and Graham and felt their pain. That’s what Colleen’s books do to me every time – they make me feel and imagine myself in the same situation as her characters. I always feel like I’m holding my breathe and bracing myself for the inevitable heartache that I know is coming. But it’s such a good heartache, because she has yet to disappoint me in the end. This book opened up my eyes to the pain of infertility and I believe it’s a book that could help marriages – it’s that powerful.

You don’t want to miss this one. Another unique and incredible love story – she’s still on her game – and she’s proven it once again with All Your Perfects.

Bottom Line

Beautiful, emotional and truly unforgettable. A marriage-in-crisis story to rival all others.

Tell Me Something Tuesday {11}

Tell Me Something Tuesday is hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings and discusses a wide range of topics from books to blogging.

QUESTION:  Midyear Update: Favorite Reads, Goal Progress etc.

I don’t really set a lot of reading goals at the beginning of the year. I don’t like the pressure – reading is my escape, it’s not supposed to stress me out. I do, however, set a number goal on Goodreads, and it’s usually a really low one that I know is attainable. I’m definitely on track to meet my goal early.

Here are some of my favorite reads of the year, so far. I’m currently reading Beartown, and I have a feeling it will also be added to this list.

    

    

    

    

 

Have you read any of these? What did you think? What are some of your favorite books so far this year?

QUESTION:  What are your picks for Summer 2018?

Here we go making lists I will never stick to! 😀 Actually, when I look back at my Spring post, I read more books from that list than I thought I would. Let’s see if I can do the same over the summer!

    

Tell Me Lies – because it sounds good and is getting some great reviews.

Good Luck with That – because I love this author’s women’s fiction books and have been anxiously waiting for this book to release.

How to Keep a Secret – because this is the author’s first women’s fiction novel, and I hope it’s as good as her romances.

The Dream Daughter – because I loved this author’s last book, and I’m hoping this one lives up to it.

Speakeasy – because I love this series. Every.single.book.

 

    

The Husband Hour – because it looks like the perfect summer read.

This Could Change Everything – because it’s been awhile since I read a Jill Mansell book.

Bear Town – because I’m determined to try this book again, since everyone loved it.

Paper Ghosts – because I loved this author’s last book, and despite the reviews being all over the place, I really want to try it.

Before I Let You Go – because I love the cover, and it’s getting rave reviews.

 

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

I enjoy ‘fluffy’ reads, as long as they aren’t cheesy and unrealistic. I want to be entertained while not rolling my eyes the entire time. 😀 What are some of your favorite authors for a fun, light read?
