All Your Perfects

Can a love story with a perfect beginning survive s lifetime between two imperfect people?

THEN: The last thing Quinn expected was to meet the love of her life just outside her fiance's front door. A year after leaving behind their cheating partners, Quinn and Graham are in a perfect relationship that seems designed by fate.

NOW: Seven years later, their perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes and dreams that they have built up over the years are tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage past the point of no return.  - excerpt from book. 

All your perfects by Colleen Hoover is my latest addition to the collection. I am often worried when one writer starts to produce one book a year, like Sophie Kinsella and many other authors there would be some books that are not going to amaze me at some point. This is my fourth book and I'm very happy with this book. This book talks about how a married couple met unexpectedly and how things have hit the 7th year crisis of marriage.

It started with a twist that instantly caught my attention and slowly the plot moves back and forth through the female character's timeline in her relationship with her present husband. This type of writing is the type that encourages constant reading as you get a little excitement here and there on the past and present time. Just when you think you can guess the plot, a twist happens and you'll feel for the characters.

Quinn is definitely a realistic person, I feel like I can relate to her. Her fears and her thoughts throughout the book defines the person she is. The way she interacts with her husband is understandable. Because I can empathize with her, there are many moments of shared feelings, when she is upset I get upset, when she is sad, I'm sad too. The way her family members interact also defines their relationship and just how well they know each other. I love all the interactions that she has with her family and especially the husband. As for her husband, it's from Quinn's point of view so the readers don't really know what goes through his head. But judging from her view and then having to read about him later on as the plot goes on, it will shock you.

This book came with a strong message behind and I truly appreciated it. It was a realistic story about marriage and how this couple dealt with it. There are many types of marriage in this world but this one in particular speaks to my heart as I am somewhat similar to Quinn in terms of personality. I learnt from this book and I will keep in mind when there are troubled times in my relationship. I highly recommend this to the ladies who are married, if you are single you can still read this book but it will be harder to relate to Quinn. Definitely a new favourite for my Colleen Hoover collection, this keeps me excited to read more of her books.
