I LOVEEEEEEEEE ITTTTTT SOOOOO SOOOO SOOOO MUCHHH!
My dear friends, please stop what you’re doing and if you want to take a moment by listening to your heart, getting lost in an marvelous journey in one of the most romantic cities on the earth- yes, I’m talking about the one and only Paris, or let’s pronounce as “Pari”- I highly and truly recommend you to read this heartbreaking, face bloating, soul crushing, inner romance awakening, tear jerking, fantastic book over and over again!
This is not kind of book you just read and forget the next day, this epic, beautiful, extremely emotional story stays with you forever and steals a part of your soul! I’m telling you my dear friends: Just READ IT READ IT READ IT! (I wanna make a special video for this book by rewriting Jackson’s “Beat it” song lyrics and singing “Just read it, read it, read it” as I’m making some nonsense dance moves between moonwalking and breakdance! But you got the point JUST READ IT!)
So let’s take a quick look this story which broke my heart into smithereens: (Yes! I found out a cruel crazy redhead like me has a real heart and it can truly ache for something! Special thanks to dear Olivia Lara bring out the secret romantic hiding inside of me for years and made me order strawberries and champagne for my husband. I wish he came home earlier before I drank the whole bottle!)
This is Leon and Zara’s long journey throughout the course of 20 freaking years, they’re thrown into each other’s life by so many coincidences but the cruel faith has other plans about the paths of their lives. They always feel something always missing in their lives because they were soul mates and meant for each other but unfortunately they cannot have their dreamy HEA because of the circumstances they cannot control.
So they lived at other cities but they always want to find each other with deep yearning and heartbreak. (I’m sobbing right now! I’m just an ugly crier and innocent two dogs in the house are already terrorized the voices I’m making right now. Should I go outside to howl to the almost full moon?)
I’m gonna hold myself at this moment not giving much spoilers but most of you know my book taste and I’m not easy grader so if you make peace the hopeless romantic side of yours, just give this book a try and earn to have an amazing visionary journey at the fabulous, remarkable locations of Paris. (When I was teenager, I watched Robert Downey Jr’s “Only You” and after that I started to learn Italian. After reading this book, I’m not gonna learn French but I’m so sure I’m gonna get a quick trip to Paris to visit the locations mentioned in the book.)
So this is not just good novel, this is fabulous book! Truly well-deserved my shiny, Parisienne, glamorous, ultra romantic, heart wrenching, brilliant five gazillion stars!
I just got in love in this book and I still cannot believe this debut novel. Dear Olivia Lara, please keep on writing and make me cry and break my heart more with your amazing talent.
Special thanks to NetGalley and Aria for sharing this lovely ARC in exchange my honest review.
Of the grand order of folio leviathans, the Sperm Whale and the Right Whale are by far the most noteworthy. They are the only whales regularly hunted by man. To the Nantucketer, they present the two extremes of all the known varieties of the whale. As the external difference between them is mainly observable in their heads; and as a head of each is this moment hanging from the Pequod's side.
