Family Life Fiction/Romance
You Were There Too is a unique take on the regular contemporary romance novel and I was very excited when Berkley asked me to be a part of the Blog Tour this past fall.
It was one of those books that when I saw that it included elements of dreams I wasn’t sure exactly where it was going to go. Anything that takes on a more fantastical side can sometimes lose me quickly as a reader. I am so glad I hung on though!
This book was so much more emotional and the characters had a depth that made this book one of those ones I felt super connected to. The dream elements added so much to the storyline, I think because there were so many “real life” issues and situations that pulled it into reality for me.
This book was a lot more emotional than I was expecting and wasn’t always an easy read. The storyline was full of smaller twists and turns that kept me guessing and I just loved the uniqueness of this one. If you are looking for a book to get swept away with and is also super thought-provoking at the same time, this is it!
You Were There Too will be published tomorrow, Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 and I am partnering with Berkley Publishing to share a copy of You Were There Too with one of my readers. You can enter my BOOK GIVEAWAY over on my Gen The Bookworm Facebook Page right now!
