All Your Perfects is beyond emotional. Just read the first chapter and see for yourself. From beginning to end Colleen Hoover delivers an emotional rollercoaster of a story that will slowly but surely tear your heart out.
If you're like me and reading books about marriages is your guilty pleasure then you'll enjoy, All Your Perfects a great deal. Quinn and Graham's story alternates between their past and present and let me tell you, the present is incredibly, painfully heartbreaking. I was glad for the chapters that looked back on the beginning of their relationship if only to give my heart a break from the sadness that envelopes Quinn like a cocoon. The contrast between the whirlwind romance of a new relationship compared to the crumbling marriage Quinn and Graham have was done so well, it was like nothing I've read before.
While books that end in happily-ever-after's are fun to read, I'm sure many of us wonder about what happens next. I always hope that no matter what the couple stays together but with the D-word hanging over Quinn and Graham like a rain cloud about to burst into a storm, you really can't guess. The problem with their marriage is so profound it affects every aspect of their relationship. And while Quinn's words and actions frustrated me at times, her character was flawed and realistic. I think she got under my skin because she was so relatable—who hasn't kept their feelings bottled up under key and lock because they just couldn't open up?
If you've never read a Colleen Hoover book before, you need to read this one. Despite my love for books about relationships, I'm not a big fan of romance novels but this was such an honest and raw portrayal of marriage and the struggles that couples go through that it's definitely a must-read.
This book will probably make you cry.
