I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder is a story filled with love, grief, and guilt. Once again, Lisa Schroeder broke my heart into pieces. But this book actually broke my heart with a bit of disappointment as well.

I was not going to review this book, but Lisa Schroeder deserves much better than a blank page with three stars. The issue is mine. It happens, much like in real life, we can’t like and connect with everyone or every character. Hell, the world would be a boring place if we did! :) I did not like the main character in this story—Ava. It’s that simple really. I felt like some of her actions and thoughts were selfish and snit fittish (It’s a word in my world.haha…) that sparked my emotions more with anger than sympathy for her.

BUT…I would still recommend this book to the moon and back! Ms. Schroeder’s words, magic, and emotions continue to dazzle my heart again and again with lines like this one:

“He smiles that beach boy smile of his,
and right then I discover
a person has the ability
to feel
a hundred different emotions
all at the same time.”

Please read this book, if you are a verse fan or a Lisa Schroeder fan for sure! Again this was all me! I sound like I’m breaking up with someone—it’s me, not you! :D

Aly (Fantasy4eva) you like? thought it was very touching at parts.

Laura Hey Aly! I am a full on verse addict now! Haha…But Lisa Schroeder hits me the hardest! I love her style! This one definitely touched my heart at times. I can’t wait to pick up Chasing Brooklyn now! :)

Cara I know I am too! It's going to be interesting because it's not in verse but I think she can pull it off;)
