I have enjoyed each thought provoking and emotional book in this series. This one is no exception. The blurb is vague so I will be as spoiler free as possible.
This one shows the consequences of idleness and apathy. How not doing anything can be as damaging as doing something wrong. How it can rob you of purpose, happiness, self worth, and connections.
Lily Hahn is a young woman whose life already seems bad due to circumstances. She is lost, uninterested, avoiding, and coping in poor ways. Salin ...more
I really like this author. This is Book 4 in 7 Deadly Sins series. The first half of the book was hard for me to get into. I kept putting it down, but since my past reads by Fisher Amelie were enjoyable I really wanted to finish this one. So glad I did. While the first half of the book felt somewhat laborious, the second half hooked me in and I was invested. Thus, the 1st half I give 2 stars, the second half almost 4 stars, and so overall I’m splitting the difference and giving the whole book 3. ...more
“Would you build a house with me?”
“I would again.”
“Would you love me when I couldn’t love myself?”
“I would again.”
“Would you hold my hand when I was lost?”
“I would again.”
“Would you kiss me?”
“I thought you’d never ask.”
ASFJKLGJSHSKFJSKFHKD!!!!!!!!! I freaking melted. I'm drowning. I can't breathe. Holy shit. HOLY SHIT!!!!! THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING. I lost count of how many times I bawled and ugly-cried over this one. Fucking heartbreaking and hopeful. I was hooked from the very beginning. I fel ...more
”People are consistent, Lily. People favor patterns because it’s what they know. Your life can be changed by simply doing nothing.”
I think the more and more books that I read, the more I appreciate the slow build. The observing of relationships growing from friends to soulmates. The books that aren’t completely based around the romantic relationships that could blossom right out the gate. The book that focuses on so much more than someone loving the girl and someone loving the boy. Idle was pe ...more
This book Idle is the fourth in the Seven Deadly series and It is just as amazing and wonderful as the others in this series. I have read all of Fisher Amelie books and this series is my favourite because she has a way of taking real life situations and really cool characters and weaving these amazing stories that feel real and will make you think about real world situations. I absolutely love Lily and feel like she truly is on her journey in this story from a troubled teen to a woman of charac ...more
A touching story of a girl whose potential is harnessed by a guy who cares enough
Like other Amelie Fisher books, this one sucks you in. Lily is a girl whose circumstances mean she cannot and is unwilling to help herself. When time came for her to step up, Salinger was there. His gentleness and kindness never crossed the line to be overbearing, and he simply provided Lily with opportunities by which she could discover her potential. He never demanded or hindered. I was not really sure what Lily ...more
Fisher Amelie writes these powerful, beautiful discourses on the human condition and with every one I feel another part of my heart and soul change, making me a more complete and compassionate person. Idle is, on the surface, a slow-burn romance, but in reality, it is so much more an account of a person realizing their full potential and striving to reach it.
IDLE worked up very slowly, but it was vital to Lily’s story. She’d been served nothing but disappointment and raw hostility, was never ask ...more
I think anyone who is a fan of Fisher has been not so patiently waiting for this book for what seems like forever. This series is one of my favorites ever. Her spin on the deadly sins engulfs you without you even realizing it. The way she takes these sins and makes them a reality that we can all relate to is pure magic.
I have to admit this book was and will probably remain the one I was most worried about because in reality this is the one sin we are all truly guilty of at some point in our live ...more
