Re-read this today, April 15, 2015: RE-READ count --> 9th
Originally read in February, 2015
No matter how many times I re-read this book, it still gets to me and it gets to me hard. I still cry, but it's all worth it. I got my paperback today so my re-read session is way special. It's a red letter day!!!
TURNED MY WORLD RED.
I love the color red. It has something special about it that I have all kinds of stuff that are red. I knew it was special, but in this book? I found out that RED is a color we all shouldn't miss!!! #turnmyworldred
This book is just so... emotional... in a really, really good way.
I was left speechless. When I read this, I needed people to talk to me in order to process... So I think it's just fair to advice y'all that when you read this book, I recommend you prepare emotionally. Know that it's not all hearts and flowers although some parts are kind of like that. This book digs deeper into your soul and will mark you. I promise.
It revolves around a girl named Chloe. She has a really well-guarded heart. She lives to the fullest, but she doesn't want people to be close to her. She doesn't want attachments and she doesn't want any form of relationship. Then comes a guy whom she would want to break all the rules for. Blake is not the typical high school jock. He actually cares and he's so concerned about Chloe. I love how he breaks down each and every one of her defenses. It's a beautiful thing to read!!
This is their story about finding the real kind of love. The love that will never tire out, the love that's patient, the love that's all consuming and the love that will make you want to stay forever.
Of course, this is also a story about taking hold of your future, being the best of what you can be and trusting that the people around you would love you and hold on to you no matter what.
As much as I love the main characters, this book would be less lovable without the other characters. Watch out for Josh, you would love him! I also enjoyed the families!!
I love this book. I enjoyed reading this. It felt sooooo good to have so many emotions all in one book! Happiness, sadness, frustration, crying-out moments, laugh-out-loud moments and many, many, many more!!! It also has so many life lessons that y'all should look into!
Arrggghh!! It's so hard to not put spoilers!! Haha! This is always my dilemma when it comes to Jay McLean's books. There are just sooooo many things that I liked, but can't actually say.
Just know that when you read this, it will mark your soul. You bet your ass it'll be in red ink! ❤❤❤I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
