My Thoughts
Green swirls
So much to think about with this one.  I’ll be back later to finish this….

Okay… Wow… I checked out other’s reviews on this just to get a feel for what everyone else is saying. It has no bearing on what my thoughts are of course, but it’s just interesting to see both sides. I’m completely glad that not everyone likes the same books. It’s so interesting reading why other’s didn’t like something you loved…. and some people have a real way with words when they’re passionately loving or passionately hating something. Gosh people are funny! LOL

What I’m seeing is either people loved it or … for lack of a better word… hated it. I really dislike using the word hate when it comes to people’s work. The story may not appeal to people but “hate” is such a strong word and it’s rude. So yeah, it was from one extreme to the other and there were very few happy mediums.

I myself am having a very difficult time trying to get my thoughts out for this book because there were a few things that were so bothersome to me but yet I seemed to have overlooked them because I seriously could not stop reading the book. I devoured it. The pages couldn’t turn fast enough for me. So THAT is what made me overlook some of the things that were annoying.

And annoying is sort of a strong term too. It wasn’t real annoying as such, just a little perturbing in spots. Like “editing” and “spelling” etc. The flow of the book was fantastic because I just couldn’t stop turning the pages but yet had the spelling and grammar errors not been there, it would have flowed a bit better. I know some people publish their own books these days and those that do lack the proper editing sometimes but because they’re self-published I can certainly overlook the little things like spelling and grammatical stuff. I’m all for people doing what they can with what they have. I have no idea if this book was self-published or not so I’m not worrying about it anymore. Moving on….

Liam:  She caught his interest at the tiny little age 4 and he was 6……. and he never lost interest. That’s sort of hokey, but yet so loveable, isn’t it?? Awwww!  I mean what 6 year old takes a liken to a girl? Girls are bad and have cooties at that age right?  Yet it gives you the warm fuzzies too.

He became best friends with her brother Jake, but yet at the same time never lost interest in Amber.   View Spoiler »

Then, finally, he couldn’t deny his feelings for her anymore View Spoiler »

The whole “slutty teenagers” thing.  Yes, there are some out there… but the whole school??  A $4200 bet?  I don’t buy it.  Fun and interesting but not realistic.  Then again… this is FICTION people!!!  Of course it isn’t real.  It does make for fun reading though!  LOL   I just loved the come backs that Amber had for Jessica!   It was awesome!   My favourite View Spoiler »

The mother!   Margaret!  Yeah, okay View Spoiler »

Anyway, I could go on with more I’m sure, but the bottom line is this.   As you can see above, everything that I’ve written that bugs me is also countered with something else that I liked or a reason why the bugging thing can be accepted or overlooked.   There are a ton of things that can be picked apart but regardless I really LOVED this book!!!!   I couldn’t put it down and the whole concept of such a young puppy love enduring the test of time and affects of an abusive childhood and an over-protective brother threatening death on him. It’s truly sweet and adorable.   Sure, maybe not fully believable, but sometimes when I read a fiction I like the impossible.    That’s what enables me to escape into a book and get out of real life for awhile.    If it’s too realistic then I may as well have picked up a true crime book, or read the newspaper!

I like the idea of having a strong love like that from childhood and the idea that it could last from ages 6 and 4 to ages 96 and 94.   It’s endearing!   Therefore, I consider the idea and concept and feel the book gave me AMAZING!   I wish there were a ton more Liam’s in the world.   He’s just simply an awesome character.   Maybe Amber could have been a bit stronger according to some people, but seriously after what she endured why shouldn’t she depend on someone like Liam.  View Spoiler » … and Jake?   He’s a pretty cool older brother don’t you think?   After everything that those two went through during childhood, I think they turned out pretty frickin’ awesome and they have the best next door neighbour ever!!

Yeah, I loved this book!  I will read it again.

Awesome I loved it

About Kirsty Moseley

Kirsty Moseley has always been a passionate reader since she was a little girl, devouring books overnight, barely sleeping and paying for it at school the next day. Writing has come similarly to her and once she discovered Wattpad, she finally plucked up the courage to post one of her stories. Seven million reads later, she self-published her debut novel THE BOY WHO SNEAKS IN MY BEDROOM WINDOW, which later became one of 10 Finalists for the 2012 Goodreads’ Choice Awards, Best YA Fiction. Shocked and overwhelmed by the response, she published her second novel ALWAYS YOU a few months later.

If she had to sum herself up in one word, it would probably be ‘daydreamer’ – but unlike most of her school teachers, she doesn’t necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, she read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….

She lives in Norfolk, England with her husband and son.
