“Kid, we all have stuff that rains down on us at different times. Your time is now.”
I present to you the book that gave me such a book hangover, I’m still recovering from it. I wish I could accurately describe the way that this book impacted me but I don’t think I will ever be able to. I was skeptical at first because it was compared to PS I Love You (and I didn’t love that book) but, to me, there was infinitely more heart and emotion packed into this 448-page novel.
I sobbed. No, I’m not kidding you, I sobbed on multiple occasions but the last time, I had to put the book down and collect myself because I was crying that hard. The entire book was a beautiful testament to the power of love that two people can share, even if it is just for a short period. I could feel the love that Josh and Lauren shared pouring from the pages and it broke something in me to read as they each said their goodbyes.
Pack Up the Moon has some serious potential to be my favorite read of the year.
❤️ One of the most beautiful love stories I’ve ever read
🤍 Relatable and realistic characters that you can’t help but love (including the dog)
💜 Heartbreak, humor, and wit rolled into one beautiful story
💙 A book I never wanted to end
