something that i really love about this book is how refreshingly unique it is. seriously, this book is unlike anything i have ever read before. it's a fantasy (of sorts?) mixed with contemporary & the way in which magical realism was woven throughout the story was truly spectacular. i am a big fan of magical realism, & it was done flawlessly in this book.
emily henry's writing was spellbindingly beautiful & haunting, & i eagerly breathed in each & every word on each & every page. there were so many passages that i found myself rereading several times, just because they resonated with me so much.
this novel explored so many important topics, such as grief, family, friendship, & love, & it was done in such a vivid & unique way.
the angle in which the author tackled the subject of grief was one of my favorite things about this book. it was just so very real, & the magical elements interwoven with the storyline only helped to bolster just how powerful & consuming grief can be.
there is so much more i want to say about this book (& i will probably add more at some point) but i really feel that it's best to just go into this story not knowing too much, & allow yourself to be swept away just as i was.
In A Million Junes, Emily Henry writes, "No one says the word beautiful. It doesn't feel right to give something so marvelous, so dizzingly wild, a compliment."
This is how I legit feel about this book. A Million Junes is "dizzingly wild." It is beyond marvelous. It is a gift. Henry's story has a million heartbeats and they are each wild and fierce.
I am a wreck after reading this book.
It is exquisite.
Full of promise.
I will never stop clutching this book to my chest.
If you're a fan of magical realism, delicious prose, smart & witty dialogue as well as a romance that will make your heart quicken, this is the book for you. Highly, highly recommend.
June O'Donnell, legally named Jack after all the men in her family before her, has been raised in the Michigan town her family helped to found with the Angert family. But a feud between the families keep them apart, at least until Saul Angert, son of her father's enemy, comes back to town and June can't seem to avoid him - thanks in large part to her best friend's romantic escapades. After spending some time together, magical things start happening that show June and Saul the truth about their families' history, which leaves them reconsidering the tales they were told growing up and whether to cling to the historic fight or move forward.
With the core of this story pulling largely from Romeo and Juliet with a sprinkling of Hatfield-McCoy, the elements of magical realism that were interwoven through the Whites that showed glimpses of memories to June, the ghosts, and coywolves helped this narrative to stand apart from the familiar arc of forbidden love. The relationships between characters felt natural and changing dynamics developed realistically over some time and contemplation; however, the creative writing teacher was the one exception that felt a bit forced, both in her character and role in pushing the plot. I thoroughly enjoyed the snarky and witty remarks that June and Saul made, despite how it wasn't entirely believable (although a personal ideal for conversation).
Overall, I'd give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
