I freaking love books! I'm currently reading a bunch of YA novels and I keep telling myself that I'll branch out into Adult lit.

The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle Review

The Infinite Moment of Us - Lauren Myracle

The Infinite Moment of Us shows how vulnerable you get when you get into a relationship. I knew how Wren felt when Charlie had to go take care of his brother or Starrla. It's not that she was needy. Okay, she did go a little overboard a couple of times, but it was to show how vulnerable she was to let a boy into her life like she did with Charlie.

This novel was very brutally honest about love and sex. Doesn't leave a single physical or emotional feeling, nor does she leave out a single, steamy detail. 

Myracle writes books that get under your skin. Books that show not only vulnerability and raw emotion, but a layer or so beneath that.  She's really great at writing about broken people, and a variety of broken people. People from broken homes, from way-too-perfect homes, foster homes, and even mansions. 

Paper Towns easter egg!  If you haven't read Paper Towns, welp. You need to do that. Why haven't you read Paper Towns yet?! 

I love Chris. Such a Bostonian. I was ready for him to start talking about the Red Sox or something. He and Pamela are great foster parents for Charlie and Dev. We don't see too much of them, but Charlie mentions them enough for me to love them. We need more Pamelas and Chris's in the world.

My reaction to the ending: I seriously started hyperventilating and yelling "HOW HOW WHAT HOW DOES IT END?"  PERFECT ENDING.

 

NOTE: This book will be out on August 27, 2013.
