Seven Days In June
In today’s edition of #BookstagramMadeMeDoIt we have Seven Days in June, by Tia Williams. I really enjoyed reading this book. Tia Williams is hilarious and the characters she wrote all had me hooked. I was rooting for every single one of them. I was taken by surprise by the heavy subject matter covered in this book. It is an exploration of how past traumas can continue to haunt and infect every area of your life, and the ways in which people try to overcome. Sometimes we are successful and sometimes not, but learning and growing does not take place on a linear timeline. I was expecting just a “typical” romance (a genre I rarely read, I prefer my romances on the silver screen). But this one felt different from ones I have read in the past (which again are very few, so I’m not the best judge of whether or not this one is truly unique). An enjoyable read that kept me warm during some cold days over winter break. I would love to see this one adapted into a movie or limited TV series.
(Spoiler so stop reading if you haven’t read the book yet: I felt bad for Ty. I felt like he was collateral damage to Shane’s growth and that sucked, I wish his story could’ve ended differently.)
