{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.

{THIS WEEK IN BOOKS}

I am reading The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon, and I’m loving it so much. My evenings have been busy, so I’m not as far into the book as I’d like to be. The only reading time I’ve had all week is when I’m on the treadmill. I’m hoping to make some time to relax and read on Sunday.

When I was able to sit down and read a little bit on Tuesday – with the Amy Harmon mug I won in a giveaway.

 

{ON A PERSONAL NOTE}

Tonight I need to do grocery shopping, laundry and get everything ready for the dance competition tomorrow. Honestly, I’m more nervous about tomorrow than Sunnie. I keep worrying I’m going to forget to take something, like one of her costumes. I’m super organized, but this first competition has me wound up. And of course I want Sunnie to have fun and enjoy the experience.

 

{STAY THE PATH}

I’ve had to move around my training days a bit this week, because of my work schedule and needing to be in the office several days. Looking forward to my long run on Sunday. I’ll especially need it after the next few days.

Target strikes again, but it was under $15!

And I love this camo sweatshirt I found on Amazon.

Hope you all have a great weekend, and thanks for reading!

{This Week in Books}

I am reading these two books and loving them.

Excited about a few new books I got this week.

  

 

{Stay the Path}

Week 4 of half marathon training. Ran 5 miles last Sunday, which was the longest I’ve run in about a year. I was really nervous about my hamstring, but I have learned to slow down my pace so I don’t overdo it. I’m also wearing a wrap around my leg when I run, which I think is helping. Another 5 miler this weekend, and then next week it increases again.

 

{On a Personal Note}

This week has been fairly normal. I was fortunate to be a parent helper in Sunnie’s classroom on Tuesday, and was able to have lunch with her. We had a snow day on Wednesday, and we’re supposed to get hit with more snow today. Sunnie has a play date/sleepover with two of her dance friends tonight. Nunz and I will go grab some dinner, but we don’t have much else planned. Depending on how much snow we get, I don’t plan on going out this weekend unless it’s absolutely necessary.

My bestie told me about these jeggings from Old Navy. I LOVE them.

I know not everyone is a fan of JT, but I’ve been a fan of his music for many years. I am absolutely loving Man of the Woods. Every single song.

 

Hope you all had a great week!

{This Week in Books}

I got a few new books this week that I’m excited to read.

  

{Stay the Path}

Week 3 of half marathon training, and it’s going well. I’ve been sticking to the schedule, which is a mix of running and cross training, with 2 rest days every week. I’m using the elliptical for cross training days, and I’ve been working on stretching so that I don’t have an unwanted hamstring injury again. I was able to run at the park last Sunday for my long run day (which was only 4 miles). Good thing Monday’s are rest days, because I was feeling it. 😀

{On a Personal Note}

We painted the bedroom last weekend, and I love it. Here are some before and after pictures.

 

 

A few other highlights of my week – our new living room furniture finally being delivered, and meeting my bestie for lunch – we were way overdue for girl time.

This weekend we have a lot of dance stuff going on. Practice on Saturday morning and a full dress rehearsal all afternoon on Sunday. First competition is only 2 weekends away!

These camo joggers from Amazon and denim shirt from Target.

Have you watched the video for Say Something by Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton? You need to. So so good.

Several months after getting a new iPhone, I finally figured out how to use the portrait mode. And have been annoying my cats with photo sessions.

Hope you all had a great week!

{This Week in Books}

I’m still reading The Serpent King, and it’s really good. I was in the mood for a romance and picked up The Difference Between Us. I absolutely love it – it’s exactly what I needed this week.

{Stay the Path}

Earlier this week, a friend pointed out that I’m way too hard on myself. I know I am, and it’s because I’m so terrified of gaining all my weight back. It’s a constant fear that I will always struggle with. But I also know that I’m strong and determined and there’s no way I’ll allow myself to go that far backwards. I preach the importance of giving yourself some grace but need to learn to listen to my own advice. I love food and that’s never going to change. I’ve learned how to live a healthier lifestyle while still enjoying things I love, in moderation. The scale doesn’t define me, and I need to stop focusing on how I gained a couple pounds over the holidays and focus on how much healthier and happier I am. I know I’ll eventually lose those pesky pounds by being consistent and doing the things I’ve been doing the past 3 years, so I’m done driving myself crazy about it.

{On a Personal Note}

It was a normal week, finally! We’re all feeling better, for the most part. Back to work and school and our normal routine, and it feels great!

This weekend we’re planning on painting our bedroom, and I can’t wait! All of the small changes we’re making to our house make me so happy. We’ve starting talking about the landscaping, too, and if the weather cooperates we may try to do some of it sooner instead of waiting until spring. If we keep getting some warmer days we’re going to take advantage of it.

 {Get in my Closet}

I was on the hunt for a great pair of distressed jeans and one of the bloggers I follow recommended these. I love them.

I’m always looking for the perfect black leggings, and another blogger I follow recommended these. They fit exactly like Lularoe and are a great price.

I can’t say I’m all that excited to watch the Super Bowl, except to watch Justin Timberlake during the halftime show. I can’t stand the Patriots.

Random photos from the week. Look at my cat’s face. She cracks me up. And Sunnie reading a book and drinking coffee, but it’s really water. #minime 😀

 

Hope you all had a great week!
