last Perception and the External World page kind of eventually And in all honesty the entireremise of him not remembering her even though she clearly thought of him as her first love and was willing to Popular Representations of Development present him with her V Card would have infuriated me if that would have been the focus of the story because Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut it wasn t the

DNF at 46%This isn t bad it just wasn t what I was hoping for I wanted romance this is literary fiction and I don t want to finish it only because I feel obligated to review it for Netgalley I know it ll only be a three star book and a uite forgettable one at that Sale alert Grab this for cheap while you can It doesn t matter if you take wrong turns Arriving somewhere you want to be in the end is what countsI ve been wanting to read this since a friend hi AR five starred this many moons okay it was like February ago It took me until this ast weekend to Death Comes for the Archbishop pick it up and sadly only because I was meeting her at a signing Don t have a go at me I m trying tolay Mostly Mama peacemakerIf you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor Oh my GOD have you been on Twitter too much againWhy did I wait so long and y all non UKers have to wait even longer because this baby isn t out until summerfall for North America What are you looking forHmm I think I d like someone who cares as much about me as I do about them That might sound a low bar But it sretty much everything and I ve never had thatBut fittingly this is a love story that is twelve years in the making It s a second chance romance It s one that ll make you laugh cry rage and laugh as you cry It s The Naked Man poignant it s heartbreaking it s so effortlessly charming and real and as a age redacted year old this felt right up my alley I remember a remark my therapist made that was long lost in memory until now no one else is going to fix you The onlyerson who can fix you is you So Coldplay liedThere is so much strength to this novel but importantly in George She is just one of my new favourite heroines Because she is her own hero She fights for herself she Damias Children picks herself back up all whilst fighting that inner voice that doubts that wonders that uestions that is beaten down by the lack of faith and shrugs and outright gaslighting from external forces She is just gah Everything If you want to help me then I wouldn t mind a bit of faith and emotional support thanksGeorgina you re still working in bars at thirty You have no savings noension no home No relationship What am I to emotionally support exactly Me as a Cutremur de timp person Aren t I enoughShe s also surrounded by a spectacular group of friends Her family is complicated but there s so much love there despite the ups and downs And the romance I mean it isn t one really but it s seriously swoon worthy and heartbreaking and also there s a dog Unbeknownst to me I was a treasure trove of interesting things once someone turned up to be interested in themAnyway If I had my way this would be mostly just me cping the entire book into uotes because it feels like I highlighted the whole thing For the funny moments definitely and mostly but also the uiet ones The ones where George s strength won through The silly moments The sad moments This has it all To be honest a lot of counselling appears to be accepting that you re up to your tits in shit and finding you re zen about it Saying at least my tits are warmI m so so glad this book wasut on my radar but importantly that I had a kick in the ass reason to ick it up I can t wait to devour McFarlane s backlist and I seriously can t believe I have signed copy of this baby in my hands Because either
