Rating: 4.5/5
Colleen Hoover delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.

Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

Okay so there's a lot I want to say, but I also can't spoil the book for you... but let me tell you that it was so emotional! Like my heart was feeling literally everything!

When you're reading All Your Perfects, you go back and forth in time and get to understand more of where Quinn and Graham started, all the way to where they are now and how it got them there in the first place. Personally, I feel like this book can be totally relatable to anyone in a relationship. I feel like it opens up the topic for couples and people to realize that communication is SO IMPORTANT and that the more you let things stew, the worse it can get, and ultimately become all consuming and destroy everything you have.

When you're reading Quinn's POV, you really understand her feelings and what she's going through, but man let me tell you there were some testing moments where I just wanted to reach into the book and give her a quick slap across the face and tell her to just use her voice and speak up! The amount of times, she was slowly letting things get worse, she could have just said something...

"My husbands heart is my saving grace, but his physical touch has become my enemy."

And then of course there's always a little bit of a twist to shake things up! When that came, I swear it was like the end of the world was coming... for Quinn at least. I could feel like it was going to happen, but when it did, somehow I was still completely shocked!

I felt like I was living inside the novel, like a fly on the wall but feeling every single thing that Quinn was feeling. It was truly and utterly pure, emotional and filled with heartache and heart melting moments. It was like having to lose almost everything is the exact wake-up call you need to save it all.

"If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim."

This quote seriously says everything! Whether it has to do with relationships or just yourself as a person, and honestly something that I should probably think about myself more than anything. If you're so focused on the flaws in your life, everything else that's truly amazing and perfect will dim and fade away, you won't realize how amazing it is.

queue reaction s GIFCan I take a second to talk about the letters?! That's only a minor spoiler there, but UGHH!! That was just so beautiful, I may or may not have cried a bit... okay maybe a lot. But reading those letters felt so real, I was just in awe of it all. It was such a tear jerker! The amount of emotion poured into those letters was so powerful, I just can't even!

Overall this was a great book! It played into a lot of things, but for one, I just found that Quinn was so much into her head, I couldn't stand it at times. It was like she didn't want to let anyone or anything into her life that could pull her out of this funk that she was in, and as much as I was rooting for certain things to happen, I also just wanted to get to the end, it was a back and forth game that was slowing down for me. I absolutely loved it, but there were moments with Quinn that I didn't love...

That's all for my review, I hope you enjoyed it, and honestly go put it in your TBR because it's definitely a roller coaster ride!

So until the next time, Keep Reading!!
Your Graduated Bookworm! :)
