The True Story of Atticus and Hazel
Overwhelming chemistry isn't something anyone ever prepares you for. It's not like your mama sits you down and warns you one day you might stumble upon someone impossible to resist, someone who sets your soul on fire. Combustible, explosive attraction is just the tip of the iceberg for Atticus Kelly and Hazel Stone. One touch between them can set the ...more
”We met at the bar.”
This is the third solid read that Fisher Amelie has delivered this year and to my surprise this one is sad. I like a bit of a warning when death plays a part in a book. Silly me had Juniper and Jupiter confused and assumed at a certain point in the story that this was the heroine from the previous book’s parents story. Farfetched thinking since double checking that heroine’s name and she was Jupiter not Juniper.
Nevertheless, Atticus Kelly and Hazel Stone’s love sto ...more
I looked over at my equally beautiful friend. She was holding Simon’s hand, and I felt so happy for her. I looked down at Atticus’s hands as they swung at his sides. I found myself wanting one of his to take one of mine. My eyes followed up his arms, his shoulders, the side of his neck, over his tattoo of Juniper’s name, and settled on his face. I wonder, I thought, if we could ever be as we were, if it we could ever be simple, if he could ever love me. I ...more
Overall, I enjoyed the story and appreciated this couple's journey. There were some lighthearted moments, but there were great heartaches as well, that quickly turned this into a somber read for me. I was shattered and on the verge of a total melt down, sobbing ugly tears seeing what this couple endured. (Especially after reading the author's notes on how this story came about). Gut wrench ...more
Disappointed. I attempted this book twice as I was hoping it would click. The connection for me never happened. . First, there was off the charts Insta.Love, Cliches, and overuse of their names was ever so present (Repetitive in nature- every other sentence from the MCs had to say each other's name by the end of each sentence). These elements incorporated into the storyline make me turn the other cheek, --tried to get past this but could ...more
I read this book in a matter of hours. It was cute and sad and hopeful. It took me by surprise and it brought tears to my eyes. I finished this book only to want more of Atticus and Hazel, especially more of Atticus :D because he's the epitome of the perfect guy. I'm excited to say that I will be reading more of Fisher Amelie books
I loved it I loved it I loved it!!
When Atticus and Hazel met it was an instant chemistry, explosive chemsitry, perhaps deeper than instant attraction but that plus more. To me who usually is sometime skeptic with those I bou ...more
I know I'm in the minority of feeling this way so please don't get mad at me. It was just hard to ...more
No words. I have no words after reading this book. I didn't want to go to work because the characters needed me. I needed them. I was so worried about them when I wasn't reading them.
I don't do spoilers...so prepare for a pretty vague, but enthusiastic review.
Hazel is an artist in Dallas. An artist who IS Dallas. Has given Dallas soul. Her art is bold and telling and has hidden nuggets of herself plastered on the sides of buildings.
To see what she sees you have ...more
This is my first book by Fisher Amelie and I had no idea what to expect. The main characters are Hazel (a 20 year old artist) and Atticus (a 26 year old musician and music producer).
Usually I can tell right away if I am going to love a book. But in this case I was not 100% connecting with the story in the beginning. But then something happened that I was not expecting and I started enjoying the book more. And then more things happened that I wasn't expecting ... and b ...more
I liked this book. I liked the way Atticus and Hazel met. I felt their chemistry. It drew me in right away. I would have liked for Hazel to make a few different choices along the way but I understood her abandonment issues.
I normally don't like this particular plot point brought up so early in a book (view spoiler)[surprise pregnancy (hide spoiler)] but I thought the characters handled it well. I also thought it was a bit too G rated for my tastes but the storyline was good enough to ...more
Amelie draws you in from the very beginning, and has you wrapped up in these amazing characters faster than you can blink an eye.
Atticus and Hazel are both very deep and have such strong emotions and conventions.
The storyline tends to go back and forth, and makes your heart ache more than once. But Amelie brings it home in the end.

I fell in love with these characters the minute I met them, their chemistry and their pull was felt in the pages of this story. It was witty, intellectual dialogues between these people and it was kept clean and so well written.
As the book picks up it starts with bits of angst, but then it's gutting me to the point that I had to put it down and take a break bc I could not see the words in front of me of how hard I was crying. This story has a very heartfelt and beautiful ...more

Broken. This book not only broke me, but it spent the needed time to also heal me. I haven't read a novel this emotionally rich in a long time. The True Story of Atticus and Hazel is a story of incredible love and the fight we wage to weather its storm.
Atticus and Hazel's story entwines you to the core and takes you on an emotional ride that you can't close your eyes for. Once I got invested there was no going back.
When they were falling in love, so was I.
"The True Story of Atticus and Hazel" is the perfect collision of love, art, pain, loss and healing.
Have you ever read a book that makes your chest feel contracted and turn your thoughts into small particles that are lost and found through words? Because that and much more is what this book made me feel!
I want to run inside the book and get lost in the words of Fisher Amelie, I want to be swallowed by the chapter ...more
I've read two other books by Fisher Amelie before; 'Penny in London' & 'Get in the car, Jupiter' I really enjoyed both of them since they were such easy and cute reads, so going into this book I expected something similar.
But omg, THIS WAS SO SO SO MUCH MORE !
This book took me by surprise and definitely is my favourite book I've read by this author so far.
First of all the writing style felt so magi ...more
