Such emotions. Like that’s literately all I can think of.
This was a really cute contemporary that mixed so many amazing things together and managed to handle death really well. It was wonderful and sweet and even though I had to rush and read it in 4 hours so I could go to the movie premiere it was completely worth it.
The idea of death was really intriguing and interesting. I was truly understanding Will in it and felt so sad and happy throughout. The handling on how he thought about life vs. death and trying to decide where they drew the line was really interesting.
My emotions were all over the place, I went from happy to sad to excited to nervous and so many others in a matter of seconds and pages. It caused a new emotion with every page.
I really enjoyed the romance mainly because it didn’t feel like insta-love. It felt like the relationship progressed at a normal pace even if it took place over such a short amount of time.
The pacing was also done really well. I felt like there were so many moments that could have been rushed through but the way that Moyes wrote it made the slower moments seem great.
Overall I really enjoyed it and I know this is kind of a short review but sometimes it’s hard to place your emotions.
