I don't know where to start my review of this book! It is the first time i have read this authors work and i have to say i fell into her book. The emotions she writes with had me engaged by the end of the first chapter. It is a story about love finding it's way between two people that have been trampled on by life. They both have addictions to help them cope with the things that have happened to them . I can't say anything else without ruining the book so if you are looking for a tear jerker the ...more

Alla fine di Resta con me l’autrice ha specificato che ad un certo punto Joshua legge un pezzo di un romanzo che è ispirato a Philip e a una sua canzone; il romanzo in questione esiste ed è proprio Waiting. Se leggete la London Series di Erika Vanzin non siete obbligati a leggere Waiting, essendo un romanzo autoconclusivo e avendo dei protagonisti diversi. Diciamo che è un plus che vi permetterà di capire meglio il protagonista maschile, Philip, di Resta con me (e del terzo libro che leggerò a b ...more

Emily e Alex: due vite diverse ma simili nel profondo. Due storie difficili, dolorose, infelici. Emily, testarda e piena di forza, cerca di sopravvivere in un mondo difficile. Alex, fragile e tenero, ha costruito una corazza per tenere lontano chiunque voglia avvicinarsi a lui. Un incontro casuale che stravolgerà le loro vite. Insieme riusciranno a superare tutti i dolori che la vita gli ha riservato rinascendo dalle proprie ceneri. Un libro struggente e appassionante che sa affrontare con la gi ...more

Ho letto altri libri di Erika e questo non mi aveva mai ispirato e non so perché... ma mi sono ricreduta perché la storia mi ha coinvolto molto.
I temi trattati sono molto delicati ma la voglia di rivincita verso questa vita che con i protagonisti non è stata facile ha regalato una speranza: la speranza e la voglia di riuscire a farcela.

Five poignant stars! A tale with all the feels…

My attention was absolutely captured when I read the sinopsis of this book and I was glad to discover that I was not wrong to choose to read it completely. It’s the first time I read a book of this author and here are my honest thoughts about Waiting.

This book has a mix of feelings that made you feel them in your own skin. The main characters are so damaged. They could be quite self-destructive and personally make you think of all the people who hav

4,5 stelline solo perché (per mio gusto personale) se paragonato al primo è impossibile non sentire il peso delle situazioni e la difficoltà che l’autrice avra’ probabilmente attraversato nel costruire due personaggi fragili e contemporaneamente forti come Alex ed Emily. La loro giovinezza già appesantita da abusi e dipendenze non è stata una facile lettura e a tratti è stata soffocante, ma questo è stato il centro della bravura della scrittrice. Un libro toccante e realistico, con un messaggio

A parer mio Erika ha fatto un lavoro davvero eccellente nello sviluppo di un tema tanto sfruttato come il romance. Ha saputo dargli una sfumatura diversa e assolutamente insolita, e l'ha fatto alla grande. Do 5 stelline - il massimo - proprio per l'originalità con cui ha affrontato il tema amoroso, affiancandolo ad una miriade di altre devastanti sfaccettature che non avevo mai avuto occasione di leggere accostate ad esso.
Ciò che mi ha colpito particolarmente è stata l'ambientazione. Il romanzo

After reading the blurb I knew I had to read this book. Emily and Alex's issues are something I'm too familiar with. They have both been through a lot in their life. They both just needed someone to love them unconditionally. Something that they didn't have. I'm happy they found that in each other. I'm happy that Emily was able to overcome her addiction and he was there to help her. I love
The fact that he was always there for her even in the bad times. To me that's true love. I love how the auth

Thoroughly enjoyed this riveting story, about the power of addiction, and the places it can take us, if we get lost. This one plucked the heart strings a little.

Waiting è un romanzo “nuovo”: dai toni cupi, con tematiche difficili, molto diverso dalle commedie romantiche e leggere che eravamo abituati a leggere della stessa autrice, i suoi tratti ci attraggono irrimediabilmente a conoscere sino al più remoto angolo dell’animo umano. Entrambi i protagonisti vivono, o meglio sopravvivono, ad una vita sregolata ed anaffettiva: mentre Alex – musicista dall’animo tormentato – ricerca una fantomatica serenità nei rapporti occasionali con le donne, col fumo e c ...more

Alex ed Emily sono due ragazzi spezzati dentro, distrutti da una vita che gli ha posto solo ostacoli. Sono due anime tormentate dal rimorso e da un passato che continua a gravare sulle loro spalle.
Alex è un cantante, Emily una tossicodipendente.
Ad Alex non importa di nessuno. La sola cosa importante è la sua musica, una passione nata fin da bambino, e il sogno di sbarcare in questo mondo. E' un ragazzo egoista, che non vuole impegnarsi in nessuna relazione ma che non disdegna un po' di sesso o

At the age of eight, Erika asked Santa Claus a typewriter. That was the moment when her surprised parents realized she was not like the other children of her generation. Anyway, that Christmas, she got a massive, professional, brand new “Olivetti Lettera 35”. It was love at first sight. She started immediately to type a few words, and soon she ended her first short story. As time passed, she bough ...more
