Words That Touched My Heart ❤

You’re going to feel uncomfortable in your new world a bit, It always does feel strange to be knocked out of your comfort zone.

Title: The title is befitting to the story of Lou, who despite changes in her circumstances is trying to be her English version.

Title Rating: 4.5/5

Cover: I simply adore the colors of the book and the simplicity of the cover. My only qualm is that instead of Empire State Building the graphic should have been of Rockefeller Centre. (You’ll have to read the story to know why)

Cover Rating: 4/5

Characters:     Louisa: She is an English girl, to experiment her luck in America. She is the strong woman who has dealt with so many problems in the past and now has a never say no attitude. Life throws loads of lemons at her but she knows how to make lemonade and survive the grind. Her heart is pure gold and she is ready to give up everything for other people. The story is about the girl who decided to dream but as they say you cannot get everything you desire.

Characters Rating: 4.5/5

Review: The story takes you through a normal person’s struggles at a job, long-distance relationship, and humanity. If you have ever been in a long distance relationship, you can empathize and definitely understand it better (for other people it might be easy to say it cannot be so difficult). The story revolves around the elite society who wakes up to a view to the central park and spend most of their time in events that are only there to make themselves important and relevant.

Louisa is in a struggle to choose everything in her life, it comes down to the point where she doesn’t know what home means. The story can be anyone’s story, which means it might be an ordinary girl’s struggles, yet it is the most extraordinary for any reader. Her past haunts her in form of Joshua, a young ambitious guy who reminds her of someone she loved once. The twists, turns, falling and getting up makes the story a perfect sense in a not so perfect Times Square world.

Story Rating: 4.5/5

Appreciation: So I haven’t read the first 2 books, but Jojo has written it in a way that you don’t feel you are missing something, rather you want to go back and read the other two.

Let Downs: I am a fan of reality, so for me, there were no letdowns.

Surprise Factor: Every 20 pages or so something new happens. It is truly a journey where you laugh when Louisa laughs and cry when she drops a tear.

Would I be reading more from Jojo Moyes: Yes, definitely. I gots to read the first two books.
