    Book Review:

    Every summer after by Carly fortune this is one of those really unique romance novels that is nuanced like 

    it's poignant it's heartfelt there are really rich undercurrents like emotional undercurrents throughout the story with these characters and you immediately care about them and the writing is beautiful I have nothing but good things to say about this 

    I gave it five stars so it's told in alternating timelines it follows sam and Percy are two main characters from like pre-teen childhood and into adult years chopping it up a little bit 

    When Percy's parents buy a little cottage along the lake she spends her summers there and becomes friends with the neighbor boys sam and his brother charlie sam and Percy just like hit it off they become like 

    The best of friends and then as they grow up they still maintain their friendship even with going to like different schools and like really living in different places 

    Most of the time they just always look forward to the summers but then something happens that's kind of like the mystery that propels the story along oh my god don't even get me started on the angst detention 

    It's great that really propels a story too but there's this like mystery element where you don't know what it is that caused this rift for them because they've gone 10 years without speaking you're like god 

    What could have happened for that amount of time to pass so you get that 10 years later with this call for her to go back to this town that she hasn't been to in 10 years while also seeing their relationship develop as preteens and teenagers 

    The pacing is fantastic the writing is beautiful I'm gonna read just one or two quick passages from the book itself because if you're a sucker for good writing like let that be the thing that gets you in the door with this book it is so worth reading I've many highlights in this many but every 

    So often i catch myself fantasizing about leaving the city finding a small place on the water to write working at a restaurant on the side to pay the bills and my skin starts to feel too tight like my life doesn't fit doesn't that like give you chills 

    It gives me chills maybe it's because I relate to it so much the weather changed the third week of august a thick cover of dark clouds settled over the providence their overstuffed bellies drenching everything from Algonquin park to Ottawa 

    I probably said that wrong cottagers packed up early and left for the city a light mist moved in over the lake making everything look black and white even the green hills on the far shore looked gray as though 

    They had been shrouded in gauze isn't that so pretty she has so many little beautiful moments in here and a lot of them are like quick little unexpected adjectives that like lead you thinking

    I don't know she would say like i don't know like it gave me butterflies but instead she'll say like butterfly swarmed my stomach just like a little something that makes it unexpected which 

    I'm such a fan of if you're planning on reading it let me know down in the comments if you have read it let's talk about it but that is all for the non-spoilers section i now will be talking about plot points and spoiling elements so please come back when you have read it 

    If you don't mind being spoiled you can stick around another really successful element that she was able to achieve in this was the doubt like these two as children were kind 

    I don't want to say outcast that feels like very caricature-like i don't want to cheapen it but you know it didn't fit in the kind of doubt that you have like about yourself and like who you are as a person 

    If people like you that like really gets stomped on when you're in those situations where you do feel so different from people so even when you're in a comfortable and positive relationship you still have that doubt 

    I feel like the psychology was really kind of like woven into this like into their makeup as characters and i loved that something i really loved about percy is when she came back 

    She was so determined to like leave there and have some kind of a relationship like she feels horrible about what happened at that point you don't know what it was and there was this one part 

    When she'd walked into the i can't remember the name of the restaurant at the restaurant um into the back where she ran into him and she thought i'm determined not to leave here on sunday and never see him again even 

    If it means dealing with him being in a relationship with someone else even if it means planning his wedding like that to me shows how much she cared about him and even just just their friendship and that is something that is sometimes overlooked 

    I felt like that was like the spine of the story it was them as friends does that make sense the spine of the story like the thing that holds it up i think that makes sense 

    I also really liked that right after he ran in with percy that i can't think of randy taylor he like immediately was like nope i'm cutting this 

    He didn't drag taylor on which would have been unfair for her and it eliminated a sometimes overused though the occasion is appropriate sometimes element of having like this third wheel type thing like it was very quickly like nixed 

    I liked that i fully prepared myself for thinking oh no this is what the story's gonna be like will he or won't he but he like knew what he wanted it spoke to how much that he still cared for her and he he was just a good dude like he did the right thing there 

    I think i mentioned psychology briefly i don't know if maybe that's like the appropriate word to use in this particular instance but when they were older and they graduated high school and he had gone off to

    That that workshop early for college and he was like really short with her and she was like thought spiraling down into a really negative place understandably 

    But what i found so good it comes with like the awareness of being an adult and realizing like where you up he like didn't he just didn't want to disappoint her in thinking like 

    Oh yeah i basically left for no reason because it's not what I expected he was overwhelmed just totally different like it was a lot for him and his reaction to that was to try and hover misguided a way to kind of protect her from seeing that to guard her against that from his perspective 

    We can see that his reasons were sound but we're initially getting it from her perspective and you completely understand why she's thought spiraling down and I think a lot of us would probably spiral in a similar way 

    So both sides were well represented i mean obviously in different timelines but they they both weren't like you could really see both perspectives and again something that she did super super well now her sleeping with charlie 

    I did not well i don't know I knew there was something with charlie i didn't think it'd be that i thought it'd be some kind of misunderstanding i didn't think it'd be an all the way thing which makes it like a harder thing for her to like come back from 

    So to speak but at this point we'd already like we're emotionally invested like we really care about her i care about sam we even like charlie too and it's just like the betrayal from that complicated emotions all parties had faults in different aspects that led up to participate like it was messy 

    But it felt very honest it didn't feel like blame game I don't know if that makes any sense hopefully it does what i found really just like so so sad was when she had come back as an adult in the 10 years later 

    She was trying to confess to sam like when they were first drinking at the restaurant and he's like brushing her off and kind of saying like I know and she's thinking yeah you know you don't actually know 

    You think it's this but it's really way worse you think it's just that she turns down his proposal but he knew the whole time and he was still so happy to see her he was still so willing to i don't know after 10 years 

    I guess some of the stings out of it a little but so willing to work past that level of betrayal in order to have some kind of friendship and like they both were so willing to do that so that's again like their friendship being like

    The spine of the story and it just worked so well i this book had me crying like the whole time i'm an easy crier though but this one part like his mom oh my god i was waiting for this line i expect i would have been disappointed

    If it wasn't here actually when charlie says she told me to call you he says serious again i stopped breathing before she died she said he'd need you after that got me so bad percy 

    she's my favorite she's my girl i relate to her in a lot of ways things that she thought like when she was a pre-teen i was like oh my god that's me that's exactly 

    How i was raised i was such a i'm such a people pleaser which i very much got that from her they like do what they expect of you like you want you want that praise you know being a child who preferred earning gold stars to causing trouble 

    I didn't give them much need for discipline and i had no idea how to cope except to try my hardest to win them back i so resonate with that and then just like a little moment like a body positivity thing 

    I have no issues with my body okay yes i have plenty of issues but i recognize them as insecurities and don't tend to worry too much about my soft belly or my bumpy thighs i just loved that that managed to make its way into the final draft 

    I don't see it very often and i think it's kind of like my own fault i'm not going out of my way to find body positivity romances i know there are some i need to read them 

    but i really liked that it was like a surprising little element that i didn't expect i found a couple little beautiful parts that i'm gonna read to just finish out the video i've seen this look from him before stormy and focused and completely consuming like 

    I could fall into his eyes and never get out isn't that pretty i just need a minute alone away from sam because i feel like i've been scraped over a cheese grater you see what i mean about those like really different like metaphor like

    I just love it the pine boughs looked like they were coated in diamond dust glittering on the inky water below celery green eyes like i cannot get enough 

    I want to hear your favorite parts give me a favorite quote i would love that I'm such a quote person.
