That being said, this was so different (made sure the author knew first hand that I was in love with this book.) I am not going to go into details on how different this book is. I had never seen something done like this before. But to be honest, it was beautiful. The life. The lies. Everything that she found out once he memory was basically gone. How she finds her one true love. And figuring out her life. It was an amazingly beautiful love story.
I do not think you will see anything like this. Ever. Ellie is so good with words and I was blown away by them. Thank you Ellie again for another, beautiful love story that is nothing like the rest.
“I am so disconnected from this life, and I know it’s because I’m not meant to be living it.”
This is one of those extremely difficult to write reviews because everything is a spoiler, but one thing I will say is that this was extremely unique to me, I loved the premise of the story and it really left me thinking at the end. This was one of those books where I would have loved an alternate ending…maybe this is something that the author may consider, because if you believe in fate and kismet…would the end result always be the same?
“The thing about fate is that it can paint the most magnificent picture with colors you didn’t even know existed, creating a truly brilliant masterpiece. We simply have to be still enough to let it happen.”
This is no run of the mill memory loss story and the way Ellie Wade delivered it was totally captivating. I was emotionally invested in the story and the characters and while on the outside looking in it may have seemed unbelievable, Ellie Wade made me believe. As I said above, this was unique to me, I personally have not read anything like it and while at times the way it was delivered was a little confusing once you understood what was happening and read a little slower it all made perfect sense. We have two stories running side by side, which in itself sounds weird, but it all ties up together, the main character is present throughout both stories and at the end Ellie Wade delivers the bigger picture.
“To me, this life feels like a dream. It’s familiar but shallow. The colors here aren’t vibrant, the emotions are dull, and the love is missing. It is a fond dream, containing some pleasant memories and people I love, but I’m dying to wake up. I’m fading…”
It was the eve of Mia’s wedding and she is involved in a car accident, she is in a coma for six months and when she wakes up nothing is how she remembered. While she can physically remember her family, she has no emotional attachment to them at all. Mia feels detached from her life in every sense of the word, nothing seems or feels right, Mia doesn’t feel as if she belongs anymore, nothing seems familiar despite the words of her family and the production of photo albums. While in her coma all Mia could think about was this “other” family she had. Her family were adamant it was all a dream but Mia was not so sure, it all seemed so real. Was this all a figment of her imagination while in a coma or was it something else entirely?
“When you wake up and realize that you’ve ruined your life over a dream, come find me. But I can’t promise I’ll still want you.”
This book was entirely written in Mia’s point of view and this really drummed home the confusion and the emotional turmoil that she was going through. Her upset at being told it was her mind playing tricks and the fact that no-one believed her. I empathised with Mia, her disappointment and her resentment towards those around her, their lack of faith and belief in her and also their nonchalance and disregard to everything that she was going through. Even though this was written in Mia’s point of view I also related to her fiancé, I actually felt for him…badly, I felt his pain and rejection, it hurt. He had the patience of a saint and despite what happened I always felt the love he had for Mia.
I cannot really say any more, I know this is vague but I really feel you need to read this for yourself the way the author intended. For me personally, the ending was a little rushed, I also felt that one part of the story would never have happened judging by what we knew about the characters and I would have liked Mia and her fiancé’s relationship expanded upon post coma, hence only a four star, but none the less, this did not detract from my enjoyment of the story. Overall this was a book I could not put down, I desperately wanted to know what happened at the end and while I got my answers I would have liked a little more.
“When the tale of my life finishes, when the book closes, I will be able to say that I truly loved with all my heart and cherished every second I had. To me, that is the definition of living.”
Another book that grips us, surprises us, makes us laugh, makes us smile. Another swoonworthy book boyfriend (Adien is definitely giving Andrés a run for the number one spot) Another strong female lead that isn't afraid to follow her heart. Another unique storyline. Another book brimming with feelings.
Another win by Ellie Wade.
“this life feels like a dream. It’s familiar but shallow. The colors here aren’t vibrant, the emotions are dull, and the love is missing. It’s a fond dream, containing some pleasant memories and people I love, but I’m dying to wake up.”
Just original and beautiful!!! I love her writing. I really have not read a book like this ever. This was an amazing book. EVERYONE should buy this book now and get intrigued with this book like I did. Falling in love again is beautiful.
Thank you Ellie Wade!!!
