I feel very, very hollow right now. In a… Good way, don’t worry.
I’ve just finished Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley.
I don’t think you realise the significance of that.
I just finished a book that left me so happy I wanted to cry. In one of the chapters I REALLY did cry because it was so fantastic.
I NEVER cry with happiness at a book. I never have before. So I know, of course, that this book is going to leave a lasting impression on me.
This isn’t a book review. This is just a thought process.
The relationship between Sarah and Linda was one of the best things I’ve ever read. I loved both of them.
I wish I had something like that, sometimes. Not Sarah’s situation, but the love they held for each other.
And now, the book’s left me hollow. It ended in a spectacular way, but I want to know what happened to them. I want to know how their relationship developed after the book ended.
I just want to know.
You know when something leaves such an impact that you feel empty, and you don’t know what to do with yourself? Yep – that’s what just happened. I’m going to miss that book. I loved it and it will stay with me forever.
Please, read it. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking in its beauty.
