I picked this one up, after the slog fest that was Everyone Brave is Forgiven, because I wanted something light and happy. I didn't quite get what I was looking for but instead, I ended up with so much more! I choose this book to satisfy the goodreads challenge - a book with a beautiful cover task. I'm really glad I did.
First, let's start with the cover. I don't know about you, but this one really speaks to me. The colors, the cherry blossoms, the heart. Yep. I love it! For me, it was the perfect choice for a book with a beautiful cover.
This book is about Poppy and Rune - best friends since they were five - who realize the gift they have been give - that of a soul mate - very young in life. Unlike the last book I read, this book was very simply written. Simple but beautiful and what Everyone Brave is Forgiven lacks, this book has in spades. This book has ALL the FEELS. It made me remember how much I loved my Grandmother and why. It made me think of the magic of the first kiss and every kiss after from my own soul mate. This book was just - magic. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars and cried most of the way through.
