The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe was an engaging, emotional read that had me hooked form start to finish.
Not my first read by this author I was hooked right away. That opening was powerful and set the stage for this witty romance about second chances and starting over. My only complaint is that some of the vocab that Elena used in her head voice as a little, weird you could say. I had to look some up, only to find out it was something simple. I know you have to mix things up, but sometimes, using an odd word for, something simple like, fake, brakes the flow and just makes the sentence sound odd and choppy. Other than that, there was nothing else that broken me from this reading spell.
I fell right away for our MC’s, both Elena and Weston were written so well, and multi layered, that you would almost believe that this was a memoir about their journey rather than a fictional story. The, as I’ve said, raw emotions, the ups downs, the past present, and the growing pains of leaning what it is to be an adult, was real, connecting and at times hit close to home. This book is a must read, and I can’t stress enough how good, honest and just humbling this story is.
If you haven’t guessed I highly recommend this book, and it gets my golden stamp of approval. Now head on over on get it, it will touch your heart and melt your soul.
