I have wanted to read this book ever since I saw it on Bookishfirst and I so badly wanted to win it. Sadly, I didn’t win it. I was extremely excited when it came into the public library that I work at. I kept putting it off because of other books with holds on them that needed to be read first. I absolutely love the cover.
I finally picked it up and I devoured it. By the 2nd night, I had read over 200 pages just that night and stayed up way past my bedtime.
I’m a big Jane Austen fan but never really was interested or dove into the story of Persuasion. I love this retelling though. I fell in love with all the characters. I cried with them, I laughed with them, I yelled at them and I cheered for therm.
Anne and Adam are so cute and you find yourself wanting them to be together.
Larry is loveable and Rick you just want to strangle.
If by chance you pick this book up make sure you have nothing else going on because you’re just going to devour it.
My rating: 5 stars
