A Book Rec brought to you by @BookBabesUnite #1 (@Christyb23 )
Readers love to share about books they’re reading. We asked readers to recommend a book they enjoyed which most of their friends had not read. We’ll be sharing what we learned and hopefully you’ll find a new book to read. I know my TBR list will be growing as we get introduced to all these books.
Today Christy from Book Babes Unite is sharing ➜ ONE DAY SOON- A. MEREDITH WALTERS
There are several books I can think of that fit the category of “Book I would recommend to people BUT not a lot of people have read” but one of my 2016 reads stands out above the rest. It’s a book called ‘One Day Soon’ by A. Meredith Walters. It made my top 5 reads of 2016 and is a highly emotional and a truly unforgettable read. I cried for days and jabbered on about it to random people that have no interest in reading that they needed to read this book (just ask my aunt LOL) It’s my favorite kind of book. The kind that makes you feel EVERYTHING. There is a 15 year old gap in the story- so it is a second chance romance (Yoss and Imi meet as teenagers, then find each other again as adults) The more I’m thinking about this, the more I want to do a re-read.
If you haven’t heard of it check out the blurb and my review if I haven’t sold you yet!
“He found me in blood and tears.
I stayed with him through darkness and fire.
We loved each other in the moment between innocence and bitter truth.
We were the kids easily ignored, who grew into adults we hardly knew.
We weren’t meant to last forever. And we didn’t.
He ran away.
I tried to move on.
Yet I never stopped thinking about the boy who had fought to keep me alive in a world that would have swallowed me whole. He was the past that I buried, but never forgot.
Until the day I found him again, years after believing I had lost him forever.
And in cold, resentful eyes, I saw the heart of the man who had been everything when I had nothing at all. So I vowed to hold onto the second chance that was stolen from the children we had been.
Sometimes fate is ugly. Life can be twisted.
And who we are can be ruined by who we once were.
For two people who had survived so much, we would have to learn how to hold on before we were forced to let go.”
