Do I want to read about it?
Sometimes, I don’t A 3. It’s this shelter, sense of anonymity and freedom from many of her obligations that allows Leah to finally get over her grief and move on. Martin has a gift for writing with an authenticity and given the freedom she has in writing a non-YA book, she offers us powerfully raw and honest character growth and interaction.
My older sister’s hamsters Harry and Hermione did not meet nice ends either. They both need intimacy after isolating themselves so intensely, but it’s hard for them too.

I also really love the way that C. I mean, good on Martin for forging on, but I think it’s crazy to wonder if there’s an audience for books about characters in their early 20s. Neither is ready for a “real” relationship, and yet what happens between them feels very real to Leah.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Either I’ve been loving them or hating them–though I think it really just depends on the MC.
It might even feel staged, like the writer took the Kubler-Ross model as a law and had to hit on each one before the story could end. The more time Leah and Liam spend together, the more intimate they become.
As it is, cme day takes me a little further from the time we shared together.
And I like you. Even if it hurts and sucks. Also thankfully for Leah, Abigail is rarely at the house, which means she has room to breathe, to cope and grieve on her own terms. Or to put it differently, I am flummoxed why the target group for a generic problematic-virgin-meets-clingy-bad-boy-plot is everlastingly huge, while a gem about a regular young woman like you and me like this is only appreciated by a handful.
I don’t need to read about how many bus transfers it takes for her to visit her friend.

Sometimes I think C.k.keelly should’ve left you alone. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. They both transformed in different ways throughout the story and they were a joy to watch together.
A part of me understood it, thinking this is probably what would happen to abotu if they lived alone and had no one coming and forcing them up out of bed, out of the house, etc. As she begins opening up to him physically and emotionally, Leah grapples with how she can move forward without Bastien without forgetting who he was to her and without moving on.

My gosh, C K Kelly Martin brings the angst and depression and sorrow and longing and utter devastation with such expertise. I met my husband when I was Leah’s age, and her reflections on the early days of their relationship very relatable on a personal level. Not only does the genre manage to completely gloss over the complexity of the first adult years, but it also becomes increasingly predictable, the final pages of a book more cloying than satisfying.
I read it over the course of one blissed-out ache-y day and one month on, I am still feeling the emotions of this read.
I was really looking forward to this book. Because even though we see her at her worst point, through that time we also see her at all her highs–as we immediately get a lot of the history of her relationship with Bastien in the early chapters.
Come See About Me
Didn’t, but I was tempted. Though Leah doesn’t want ms let go of Bastian or his eee, she does – however subconsciously – want to live again and the slow manner in which she re-discovers pieces of herself is beautiful. When I love, love a book, I become a psychotic book pusher, trying to get everyone to read said book. But the part I found unrealistic was that someone knows they’re about the get kicked out of a place for lack of payment, etc
