4.5 stars!


After reading and loving Bright Side and Gus by Kim Holden, I knew I wanted to read her debut novel, All of It. It was much different than her other books, but what a story! The plot was unique, the story was beautiful and that ending… my god I had tears running down my face. It was exceptional. There were times it felt a little slow in the middle, but overall I LOVED IT. It gave me the feels in an entirely different way. Dimitri and Veronica were fantastic characters and their story

Actually, I shouldn't rate this book maybe because I have read it until %50 and then the main character, Veronica, annoyed me so much that I wanted to throw away my kindle. She was a selfish, spoiled and irritating character and because I couldn't stand her, I didn't care for her story.

She had this amazing boyfriend, Dimitri, and she just didn't deserve him!

I couldn't feel their love story much, or maybe, I only felt Dimitri's, and I was yelling loudly, "Oh Dimitri, go find someone else, she isn

Wow! This is a long listening. 11 hours. The story of life, ever lasting love, growing up becoming an adult, soulmate, family, and acceptance. Many many more i think. But i wont summarize it here. You have to read it.

80% of this book might be boring with description how perfect is Dimitri. He is perfect. But i feel 80% is way too much description.

Veronica met Dimitri on school and they bounded very quickly. Soon that bound turns into love. Veronica also have vivid dream about knowing Dimitri b

When I was given the opportunity to read All of It by Kim Holden, I jumped at the chance to review this book because all I heard how amazing BrightSide was and I wanted to check out her debut book, All of It.


All of It was definitely one of those books that took on a slow pace as the story progresses. It was not necessarily bad but I felt at times, the author should have quicken the pace up a bit. With that being said, All of

All of It by Kim Holden
4 stars!!

“Life is sometimes…destined.”

After the EPIC read that was Bright Side that was also penned by this author I decided to read the other book that Kim Holden had written. For a first book, this book was amazing. I was glued to the pages from start to finish, trying to read between the lines, coming up with my own ideas and just drowning in Veronica and Dimitri’s story.

I average about 3 books a week...I will rate them, but I don't leave reviews on all of them. When I come across a book that stays with me long after I have finished it, I make sure to post a review and search out the author. Kim Holden...GAH!!! I've been singing her praises for a solid week now...stalking her on social media...pimping Bright Side out to anyone who will listen. Now I am going to continue my assault on her awesomeness with All of It. Started and had to finish Veronica & Dimitri's ...more
I read All of It by Kim Holden solely based on author recognition. I heard great things about her latest book, so I picked this up having no idea what to expect and not reading the synopsis. I must admit that the beginning was EXTREMELY intriguing. I could not figure out what was happening. Strangely, Dimitri, the MC, reminded me of Edward from Twilight. I know, strange. I thought maybe it was Twilight fanfic <- I don't want to spoil it, but I was wrong ;)

In any case, Dimitri is the new boy in s

Kim Holden knows how to write an epic story. I read Bright Side and that book devastated me but yet also quickly became my favorite book EVER. So of course I have to read every book she's written which brought me to All Of It.

All of It was exactly what I expected. Beautiful, a tear-jerker and just an all around fantastic read. Kim's writing grabs you by the heart and makes you fall hard for her characters. This one had more mystery th

Wonderfully written love story with a beautiful twist at the end.

Going back to the beginning with Kim Holden
It was a wonderful read till %47. And the writer decided to add some teenage drama... Puffff. The plot was oh sooo unique and when I first read the first 2 chapters I was definetly hooked. I felt their chemistry although they were 16. Their sudden love didn't disturb me at all because I knew sth gonna happen and every question in the readers mind will be answered in the end.
I knew what was going on from the begining, thanks to my gr bestie:)) Dilek, who loves reading more than necessary reviews!

I just need a minute to wipe the tears off my glasses.


I knew this book would make me cry because Kim Holden is a sadistic bitch. She gets off on other people's pain and snot. It's fine, I already forgive her.

I think I love Dimitri Glen. I love that he is devoted, talented, loyal, loving, he loves Paris, he's tall and skinny - totally my thing. Add Converse and jeans and I am getting ready to fight Ronnie for him. But their love is true love. Perfect love. Enduring love.

Woven into the story
3.5 Stars

I hated Bright Side and I know I was in the minority with that book, but I liked Kim Holden writing style so I wanted to give ALL OF IT a chance.

This one is hard to rate. Great premise. I liked the whole idea of it, but sometimes the heroine drove me nuts. I understand she was a perfectionist, but I think she was crazy. Her reasons for doing some of the things made it hard for me to empathize with her. At first I liked her, but then I could not understand why D wanted her time and time

DNF @ 36%

I love Kim Holden, but I'm just not feeling this super sugary romance. The heroine is rather naive and annoying. Maybe it's just too Young Adulty for me? Dunno. Perhaps I'll come back to it.

All Of It is my first book by Kim Holden and oh it was such a sweet, sweet read. I really enjoyed every page of it.

1This book tells the story of Veronica Smith, her good and seemingly perfect life. She's worked her whole life to do everything right, so she can get in the best school she can and have the life she wants. She's a kind person, who loves to help those she love and then some. Her life is pretty simple. She h

This was an enjoyable read that kept me interested from the very beginning all the way till the end.

It moved along at a great pace, had interesting and amazing characters and a great story.

This is a must read and I look forward to reading more from this talented author in the future.

Re-Reading time ....

Not sure when I read the book the first time but it felt good to come back to it. When you need the feeling that "Everything will be OK in the End" than this is one of the "Go to" books.

"Memories are more meaningful and powerful than you can imagine."
A fascinating Young Adult novel with touches of "deja vu"... about meeting a handsome young boy who is perfect in every way possible that he doesn't seem real... there is something much more going on... or rather something much more "went" on. Everything seems to be happening for a reason, for in this story there are NO coincidences! 4.5 Chilling Stars for two people who were meant to be together for ever and ever... past, present,

I'm a huge Kim Holden fan, but this wasn't in the same ballpark as Bright Side or Gus. I found the story dragged on at times, and some of the characters just too good to be true. The best part of this story was the end - it caught me completely off guard, and had me in tears. Be warned, you'll need tissues close by at the end of this book. ...more

Every story that I have read by Ms Holden has been a great read for me and this one is included. 'All of It' is a story of boy meets girl, both have feelings for each other. They go through good and bad times but ultimately come out the other side. But, there is a strange twist to their relationship. That part I will keep to myself and just say READ IT! ...more

This was a wonderful story of destiny, life, loss and most of all love. The one remark I want to make is the flow of this story, it fluctuated a little too much for my liking. One moment I couldn't stop reading and the next I almost (stressing the almost) lost interest.
But I'm curious to read more of this author.

This book was a bit of a struggle for me. There were a couple times I just didn’t want to keep reading this story. It was so frustrating then boring then the story jumped away from what it was into something totally different and I was worried the author dropped the single thing that made me want to keep reading this book for a sad plot twist. The last few chapters gave this book redemption.

When I first saw this book, I thought it might be the book to break my slump. Then life interferes, but I found the time and boy am I glad I did. This book did cure my slump, but created another problem all its own. I'm trying my hardest to push this book from my mind, in short I have a MAJOR book hangover! LOL

It's probably not a good idea to finish this book then go to the gym and listen to 'Then' by Brad Paisley. Otherwise you may find yourself sobbing while running on a treadmill and trying to pretend those tears are sweat. Pretty awkward. God I loved this book. It wrecked me. So emotional but also so so beautiful and what a gorgeous concept. Dimitri is just perfect - clear evidence that men need a couple of centuries to get it right, but when they do... wowza. I want to read it again now but fear ...more
