WHY I WANT TO READ IT
I have wanted to read this book forever. It is not the type of book I usually go for ( far from it). I’m currently reading a lot of fantasy and I’ve been really enjoying it. But this book right here… I just know it is going to break my heart. I have read wonderful reviews so I know that it will pull at my heartstrings and I am not ready. You see, I get really invested with books; so much so, that sometimes my heart aches physically because it’s just gets really overwhelming and I have to take a break (Yes I’m talking about you Where She Went). I guess I need to prepare myself before reading this book. Truth is, will I ever be ready?
