So Near the Horizon
Yet Jessica sees something else lingering underneath Danny’s perfect facade. Bit by bit, she manages to pick it apart, unveiling harrowing truths ...more
”Time heals all wounds.”
“But every wound leaves a scar.”
To write a proper review about “So near the Horizon” is kind of hard and if I had to describe the book with one word, it probably would be “heartbreak”. Well, I most certainly wouldn’t use the word romance because I feel like this is the wrong word. When I think about ro ...more
Trigger warning: Rape, Sexual Abuse, Drug Use, Suicidal thoughts
My heart is well and truly broken, knowing that this is based on a true story, I honestly can't even comprehend everything that must have happened throughout the time frame, I'm still crying from the last 50 odd pages. Due to this being based on a true story this review will be slightly different, ...more
I’ll admit, when I read the synopsis and even about 50 pages in, I didn’t think this book was for me. Generally speaking, I don’t do romance. I could count on one hand the number of romance novels I’ve actually enjoyed. Plus in the beginning of this book there were numerous cliches and tropes I didn’t like. (“You’re not like other girls”, the standard rich attra ...more
Es fällt mir schwer so einer wahren, tragischen Geschichte überhaupt eine Bewertung zu geben, aber das Buch hat einfach 5-Sterne verdient. Für die Art, wie es geschrieben ist, dafür, dass ein Großteil der Einnahmen an eine Organisation gespendet wird.
Noch nie habe ich so viel Sc ...more
After reading this book, I found a new goal, trying to get every soul to read this book but first, I'd like to thank the author for giving me a free copy of this book, it completely changed my life and I'll forever have this book in my heart.
You're probably wondering what's so special about this book that's making me so sentimental? This book deals with a lot of issues/problems that happens everyday to several people in the world, things we don't really like to th ...more
”Time heals all wounds. But every wound leaves a scar.”
First of all, thank you so much, Jessica Koch, for providing me a copy of this masterpiece and the honor of reading and reviewing it. This was a story I will never forget.
I definitely want to read the other books in this series one day as well.
This book absolutely tore me apart body and soul! I’m still crying while writing this, I'm so sad and inconsolable! Knowing that this book is based on the author's true story just ...more
First off, I’d like to thank the author, Jessica Koch for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
I knew going in that it was going to be somewhat of an emotional read but nothing could've prepared me for what was to come because to say it was heart-breaking would be an understatement.
Overall, I loved it. It was a story of ill-fated love with raw honesty but also of hope and strength that ensues so much emotion.
Initially, it was a slow start for me and for the first 100 ...more
I highlighted 74 notes while reading this,still I can't find perfect one to use for this review, I'm such a mess right now, this book touched my soul,I can't remember the last time I was this emotional about a book, the fact that its based on true story is so not helping my case.
This book turned out way better than I expected, its incredible, I love everything about this book even the parts that made me cry. The writ ...more
A great thank you to the author for sending me the book to review it. I feel so honoured aaand also
kind of proud of myself.

Der Klappentext führte mich erstmal auf eine falsche Fährte, denn ich dachte, es würde sich um einen Teenie-Liebesroman handeln.
Erst viel später wurde mir bewusst, dass dies die Erzählung & Aufarbeitung einer wahren Geschichte ist - und es sollte sich als eines der emotionalsten Bücher herausstellen, die ich bis dato gelesen habe.
Eine Achterbahn der Gefühle, die mit einem großen Berg Taschentüchern & rot geweinten Augen für mich endete.
Und trotzdem oder vor alle ...more
First of all, I have to say I am not a native english speaker so, please, I prefer to not be attacked, if I made any mistakes. Instead of do that, it would be nice if you corrected me, thank you :)
Buddy read with Katherine! One of the first buddy reads I have ever done and I’m glad I’ve done it with you :)
I want to thank the lovely Jessica Koch, who has nicely sent to me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I’m flattered, I mean, receiving a book from an author is NOT something...more

Три години, през които тя среща своята сродна душа, изправя се пред страха от това да изгубиш най-близкия си човек във всеки един момент, изпитва крайните емоции на отчаяние и надежда, много радост, но и много горчивина и нито за миг не се разкайва за пътя, по който е поела - този на любовта. Един откровен, чувствен, болезнен разказ, който ми донесе ...more

Trigger warning: Rape/Abuse/Drug Abuse/ Suicidal thoughts.
I don't think anything I write in this review will do this book justice, I just can't find the words to express just how much it touched me and what I felt while reading this. I had no idea what I was getting into before reading this book, I thought this was going to be a fluffy cute contemporary, boy was I WRONG. This is based on a true story, a full-blow ...more
In no way will I be able to review this title with the justice it deserves but I will try and compose myself to say a few words to hopefully encourage others to read it. Honestly, I want everyone to read this as it will give you a new perspective on life in addition to the unknown behind an individual's personal background.
I don't want to spoil anything so I will keep this review as vague as possible as I believe that is how th ...more
“Time heals all wounds.”
“But every wound leaves a scar.”
This story based on true events was DEEP!
It took me to places I didn't want to go, made me feel things I didn't want to feel but left me with a clearer focus about compassion and love of others and still a part of me was very angry at the end.
As most of my GR friends know, I don't prefer contemporary novels because I find them too full of drama and issues I don't care to entertain myself with. I read to “escape" the rea ...more
Wahnsinn. Man merkt dass das Buch zur Verarbeitung geschrieben wurde. Es ist so viel Gefühl reingesteckt worden. Stellenweise war es langatmig, aber es ist einfach so echt, so real.
Ein sehr sensibles Thema wird einem hier näher gebracht. Man gerät ins Grübeln, was man selber in so ner Situation machen würde.
Was mich am meisten flashed ist, wie Danny mit allem umgeht. Diese positive Lebenseinstellung. Davon kann man sich ne große Scheibe abschneiden.
Aus der Scheiße wach ...more
There are three types of good books in my opinion:
1. The ones that make you feel good for a minute and then you forget about them.
2. The epic ones that make you want to read and reread 'em over and over.
3. The ones that touch something deep inside of you and you are never the same after the exp ...more
„Толкова близо до хоризонта“ е една съкрушителна, емоционално наситена история за любов и приятелство. Тук авторката ни разказва три години от своя живот. Три години, изпълнени с невъзможни неща. Препятствия. Изпитания. Загуба. Три години търсене на щастие и намиране на болка. Тази книга ще ви разтърси, ще ви натъжи, ще ви ядоса. Ще събуди всичките ви инстинкти, дори тези, които не сте подозирали, че имате. Ще ви накара да се гневите на хората, ...more
Jessica Koch’s SO NEAR THE HORIZON is a gut-clenching tale of love that becomes even more amazing in that it is based on a true story whose ending is a merely a bittersweet beginning for two souls forever linked by the time they shared as they raced against time to grasp at every mo ...more
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. So thank you, Jessica Koch for giving me a copy of "So Near the Horizon." This review is truly how I feel.
Let's start with a little background of the book. If I'm correct this book is influenced on true events that took place in the authors personal life. The story is about a girl, Jessica, and a guy, Danny. It explores their love and struggle, hope and fear, strength and weakness. It's a story of true love.
So Near The Horizon is the cute, painfully emotional story of two people, both deeply wounded and damaged in their own way, who learn to love themselves by loving each other.
I usually don’t read contemporary novels, as many of you probably know already, so I might not be an expert in my judgmen ...more
