I decided after reading this that I couldn’t do a review. There was simply so much I wanted to talk about but 75 percent of those things were spoilers and I didn’t want to accidentally spoil, of course.
But I needed to find another way to feature this gorgeous book, which I got in ARC form from Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore — check them out.
Thus, a Waiting on Wednesday post. (“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine)
This book is amazing, everyone. It’s the perfect mix of happy and sad, angry and lovable, among numerous other emotions for which I have no name. Before reading this I had never read a Hoover book, and gosh, I am so thankful I did.
The plotline sounds fine in the blurb, but reading it? There are so many twists that you don’t see coming and they made the plot so much richer, so that it seemed more than a contemporary.
The whole idea of an art studio where you can drop anonymous confessions that inspire an author’s work really sparked my interest. As did the first chapter, where her boyfriend is dying. It definitely started off with a bang.
The writing is meaningful and unique, beautiful and startlingly heart-wrenching in its truth.
I’d recommend you checked out Confess when it comes out!
