Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Beautifully written, but too much for my heart. I felt as though Everything I Never Told You forced the reader to suffer just for suffering sake. I do love myself a good heart wrenching novel but this one wrenched and pulled and twisted. I found myself in a bad mood after reading it. I had to force myself to turn the pages. I didn't want to know what happened next.
The characters were beautifully done. I connected with Lydia on a level only introverts can but I still couldn't enjoy this book.
I give it a three because it is beautiful and Ng clearly does a great job emoting feeling in the reader, but I just couldn't take it.
My heart hurts thinking about Hannah holding her sister's broken locket. I just can't.
