“Everything seemed meaningless to me. All of a sudden. My own life, the lives of others, of animals
and plants, the whole world. It no longer fitted together.”

“You see, when you make something by hand, whatever you make takes time, patience, concentration and your energy. You should value that. So, when you give a gift, you should do it with a clear intention and your pure heart. And that’s the same way you should receive such a gift”

Have you read this?
It was popular on bookstagram and has been on my list since it released. For some reason I just never picked it up. Finally I started reading it because my hold was ready at the library and I got tired of suspending it (this girl was at her library limit and needed to put other books on hold).
It wasn’t particularly bad but it also didn’t feel like a must read and therefore I don’t understand the hype around this book. I also felt like I kept comparing it to In Five Years. The difference is… I loved In Five Years!
I wonder if I would have enjoyed it more in the fall/winter when the weather doesn’t feel so bright and hopeful. A different season, a different mood. (I’m not the only one that feels this way about weather & books right?!)
Again, it wasn’t a bad read but I don’t think it lived up to its hype. It dragged on a bit and I often found myself asking what the point of the story was. If this is stuck on your TBR, you’re not missing out.

“You don’t. You take a leap of faith. It’s not hard, you know. You just need to find someone who makes you chai when you are tired, and who rubs your feet when they are sore instead of insisting you are wearing the wrong shoes”

“Reena shrugged noncommittally, but she disagreed. Maybe for others dating within their own culture was easier, but for her? No. Dating from within meant family expectations were higher. Parents intruded more. Were involved more. After all, here Nadim and Reena were, apparently “dating within their own culture,” and neither had the balls to tell their parents about the relationship. This was hardly easier.”

“Screw fine, Ree!” Amira threw her arms in the air, causing a small spurt of chai to erupt from her mug. “You’re always fine. The fucking house is on fire, and you’re that idiotic dog with a cup of coffee saying this is fine. It’s not fine. You’ve been downsized, again. Your father has all but traded you in a business deal and is now asking you to spy on the man he wants you to marry. A man who slept with a flea-ridden kindergarten teacher!”

“Why don’t you come inside for a bit,” he said. “You look beat. I think you need a cup of tea or something.”
Smart man. Reena smiled and followed him into the apartment”

“Reena smiled widely, remembering her favorite snack. “Yes. Leftover maani with strawberry jam. Or, even better, with butter and sugar.” Her mouth started to water.
“Maani is like roti, right?” Shayne asked.
Reena nodded. “Roti, chapatti, rotli, maani, it’s all pretty much the same thing.”

I started this ARC hoping to enjoy it. Unlike other books, it wasn't because it was a book I'd heard good things about online already (since it’s an ARC), but I was hoping to enjoy it because I just finished reading Meet Cute also by Helena Hunting ! Knowing I had this ARC sitting in my inbox after finishing Meet Cute was so exciting and it did not disappoint at all.
The book is definitely a binge worthy read, yet I'm so glad I took the time to savour Avery and Declan's story. I absolutely love how Hunting writes a beautiful harmony of comfort, nerves, trust, and pleasure when Avery and Declan finally connect.
Though I loved the time and reflection it took for Declan and Avery to get back together, the writing felt a little too reflective at that point (a little bit like how most epilogues are written). Nonetheless, the story and character growth was phenomenal and I loved how the entire book came together.
If you weren't planning on reading this sweet tale about love between friends, family, siblings, and more, I highly recommend you add it to your list! Pre-order now to have your hands on a copy when it releases on September 21, 2021!
Also, Declan and I are totally on the same wave length because I've used ice cream as a bribe to get someone to go out before.
Thank you Netgalley, St. Martin's Press, and Helena Hunting for this ARC!

“Reena had enough of a life outside of work that she didn’t care that she didn’t find her work fulfilling. But Dad would never ask her about that life—in his eyes, only work mattered. Not hobbies”
