“She realized that these were the things she was worried about forgetting — these small familiar pieces of her old life. These fragments of things she would never get back again.”

3/10 OR 2/5 STARS
Okay, so here’s the thing: this book had huge potential. There were so many things that could’ve gone right in this book, but the problem? None of them did. By a mile and a half, this was the most disappointing read of this year for me.
For a little bit of background, I picked up this book solely based on it’s amazing cover and added it to my TBR. Soon enough, I saw that the entire world of bookstagram was reading it, and it was one of the hottest (Pun? Pun.) books of summer. To ...more
