[this is a synopsis from my article / review on Medium]
Sometimes, we read books that end up changing us as people — how we think, feel or even behave. They impact the way we view the world around us and our relationships. These are the books that, in all the ways that count, matter and the ones you can’t stop thinking about.
It’s almost a blessing to stumble across these stories and to read those words that will inevitably change you.
All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover was gifted to me on my birthday, and I read and finished it in two days, crying my eyes out after turning the last page. It was devastating and heartbreaking and unapologetic in its rawest truths, meaningful in ways I can’t even begin to explain.
When I first started reading it, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Still, it hit me like a trainwreck, left in the aftermath of love tinged with imperfections, mistakes and every beautiful, aching thing intertwined with promises of loving and being loved.
