All the Feels and So Much More
Insomnia at its best. I love when these two things happen together one, I cannot sleep and two one of my favorite authors has a new book. I had about 65% of this read by 4am on January 2, 2020 it is that breath taking. I do have a request if you are planning to read this and that is do not read the blurb at all. I do not want you to know a single thing before you open this book. I am not even sure how much the blurb gives away because I still have not read it. I just want you to dive headfirst into Regretting You exactly the way I did and let it swallow you up in the absorbing way only Colleen Hoover seems to be able to. I was so wrapped in it that I went to sleep thinking about this book, I woke up thinking about this book and now I am just shook by the experience. This is one of those epic books that will stay with you for days and it will be worth it. Like I have already said, I do not want to spoil the storyline itself. The way it comes together and unfolds, the shocking twists and turns in the story are simply BRILLIANT and if you know anything at all about it ahead of time, it might not be the punch in the gut the way it should be. I know you are thinking why would I be so obsessed you just have to find out for yourself. The way it is written though with the dual perspectives is genius. I will tell you that this is a story as much about love as it is about family. It is a wholly relatable story about the mother and daughter dynamic and it hit home for me HARD as a daughter. It really does illuminate the growing pains of parenting, the way so much can change while the need to protect and shelter never will. It was a kick right to the gut feeling Clara’s resentment and anger toward her mother, such completely authentic reactions yet so brutally heartbreaking to witness. Regretting you is heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time. It will show you the resilience of the bond of mother and daughter and it will give you hope that people can make the best of even the worst of circumstances.
