Title: All Your Perfects
Author: Colleen Hoover
Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.
Confession time: This is the only Colleen Hoover book, out of the 8 of hers that I’ve read, that I’ve actually been disappointed with. I wasn’t left with severe chest pains as my heart broke into tiny pieces with tears streaking down my face. You know, the normal feeling you get after reading a CoHo book.
But not this time.
All Your Perfects left with me a more “meh” feeling when I turned that final page and I feel so bad about it because all previous experience indicated that I would be blown away emotionally by this book.
I had such a hard time connecting with the characters and most of the time, I straight up hated Quinn, the female MC. Seriously, I wanted to reach down through the pages and shake her so violently sometimes. What a bitch the way she treated her husband. Which is also kind of why I did not like the ending that CoHo gave us. I needed it to be more realistic and if you haven’t read All Your Perfects yet, I won’t go into detail about the ending. But man, if it had gone in a different direction, I think the emotional punch would have been that much bigger and may have inched up my liking of this book. If only a little.
The whole back and forth in time between past Quinn and Graham when they first meet, under rather unpleasant circumstances, to present and miserable Quinn and Graham, it somehow distanced them more and made it difficult for me to connect with them. Not that I normally have a problem with switching between past and present, but this time it just didn’t do it for me.
However, I still deeply love Colleen Hoover and her fantastic heart-wrenching, emotional-punching, ugly-crying work of art and I can’t wait to pick up the next one and see where that takes me on the emotionally-drained scale.
Do I recommend this book?
Yes. If you’re a CoHo fan then you should read it and make up your own mind. Each to their own opinion and even though I wasn’t a fan of this, doesn’t mean you won’t be.
Have you read All Your Perfects?
I’m interested in hearing your opinion on it.
