The places I’ve cried in public – recommended by @leelovesbooks and read with @behindtheblurbbookclub @l.aurareads and co!
I fully accept that I won’t be able to do this book justice.
But, as someone who has somewhat similar experience to Amelie, I couldn’t have resonated more with her, not hated Reese for everything he did and represented.
Bourne writes in a real, easy way to enjoy the book, which is pretty blooming impressive considering it includes some pretty dark, twisted behaviours.
I could tell you how well thought out it was, and how the story was told, which was brilliantly, but that’s a (true) given.
This book will stay with me for a LONG time.
Should you read this? (Because why else are you here..)
⭐ Experienced/in a relationship where your partner puts you down or makes you feel small, or as though you are not good enough as you are.
⭐Felt like you can’t do anything right
⭐Felt like your partner makes you feel you’re being stupid or ‘crazy’
⭐Felt like you’re starting to doubt yourself, worry they’re right and your friends and family don’t love or like you
⭐ Has your partner ever belittled you or suggested that your successes aren’t because you are great, but for another reason that takes the recognition away from you.. and even onto them?
This is a drop in the ocean, but if ANY of those sound like they could *just maybe* be true, I personally urge you to read this book. Please. It could rescue you from a narcissistic, toxic, manipulative relationship.
Spoiler (not really) – if that’s your partner, lose them and you’ll win.
