“If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.” –Colleen Hoover, All Your Perfects.
Colleen Hoover delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.
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.
All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?
If you haven’t read this book, I advise you to go in blind so you should probably come back to read this after reading it. If you have read the book, Go ahead then.
I usually don’t read books when the main characters are already married and working on their marriage, but one sleepless night I decided to give this a try.
After starting the first chapter I realised I had started All Your Perfects before, but I had stopped after two chapters so I decided to continue because it started interesting and I was intrigued.
I loved this story and how it portrayed Quin’s emotions. She went through the process and her feelings. To be honest she was going through a lot.
I’m not one who has ever dreamt of becoming a mother, nor am I bothered about the prospect of having kids. I’m sure I want kids someone day but not now. Even after getting my PCOS diagnosis, I cried for a while had dinner and moved on with life. When I get to the bridge we’ll cross it/ I love kids I do, but I wouldn’t be bothered a lot with the prospects of never having kids so I was like I wouldn’t relate with Quin or understand her.
Boy was I wrong there, I felt everything she did. Reading this was quite hard because I wanted everything Quin wanted, I felt everything she did and I was just as devastated as she was.
And Graham you unperfect man. You were so unperfect it worked just fine, You did all the wrong things, said all the wrong things but you loved, you loved and didn’t give up.
My other comments from the other books still stand. The women are weak. I don’t relate to the women. And can Colleen Hoover write a book where the characters are not diagnosed with one ailment or mental disorder? It’s getting tiring.
Regardless, I loved this book. If I shine the light on the flaws of this book, it’ll dim the perfects, hence I’ll just end this review here.
