it was amazing

Wow. I originally started this book in May but DNF'd it. I almost never return to books that I DNF'd, but something compelled me to return to this one. I'm so glad that I did! This is one of my favorite reads of the year so far. I liked the concept, the characters, and how it deals with grief in a way that is so very real. The relationship at the heart of the story (between January and Gus) is a friends-to-lovers romance which is my favorite trope. The two had wonderful chemistry together and, despite their differing world views, were very compatible. While I didn't always like January, I definitely related to her on many levels including using my writing as a way to process things and to heal. Gus was such a gentleman and had such a huge heart. I found the conclusion of this novel to be very satisfying. None of Henry's backlist really appeals to me, unfortunately, but I will keep a lookout for future books by her
