All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover
Sometimes you read a book and it makes you cry.
Sometimes you read a book and it makes you angry.
And sometimes you read a Colleen Hoover book and you feel every emotion that has ever been in existence.
Every time I go into one of Colleen's books I take a deep breath. I know that may seem silly to some of you but I do it because I know that as soon as I open that book I'm going to be sucked into the story she's created. I'm not going to feel for these characters, I'm going to be one with these characters. I won't have a crush on the love interest, I'll be in hopeless love with him. I will laugh at every humorous comment, I will frown every time someone gets upset and I will feel every single heartbreak as if it were my own.
All Your Perfects is devastating and beautiful. It's sweet and funny but also real and shattering.
When I went into this I didn't know much about it aside from what was said on Goodreads.
"All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?"
To me that didn't sound like anything I've ever read, especially from Colleen so saying I was interested would be an understatement.
Graham and Quinn are not perfect people. They aren't "special", they don't have super powers, they don't have people fawning over them. People don't have posters of them over their bed or chant their names. They are just people to everyone else. But to each other they ARE special. They do fawn over each other and I'm fairly sure they would hang a poster of each other over their bed. Unfortunately life doesn't always go as planned and that is something Quinn and Graham are struggling with.
Watching their journey and reliving their past was exciting and overwhelming at points. Whether you have read Colleen before or not please read All Your Perfects. It will make you feel which is really the best thing that can come out of reading.
"If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim."
