    1. If He Had Been With Me was a poignant story which I devoured in one sitting It s a story which deals with issues of friendship, first loves and family in the most raw and intense way I have come across in a long time It was a story which I knew how would end, but I was utterly mesmerised into reading because of the beautiful heart rendering prose.The story opens with the most heart breaking chapter, it gives you an insight into how things end Despite knowing this I continually tried to bury this [...]

    2. Wow I did not expected it to be this good Damn you Laura Nowlin I will stalk you till you give me a new book If He Had Been With Me was on my can t wait list for months and I couldn t resist and read it the moment I got my hands on it I started reading in the morning and didn t put it down until I was done crying because I had a feeling someone stabbed me in the heart even though the book started with the most unpleasant thing than can happen I chose to ignore it There was just no way the story [...]

    3. Perhaps he would ask me what books mean to me I would tell him that it means living another life This book was so uncomfortable to read The metamorphosis of Autumn runs parallel to my own teen years This book didn t feel like another life,it felt like an alternate universe of my own.Not because I had a boyfriend I didn t appreciate, or a boy that I loved and didn t deserve Because I asked the same questions, showered until I was numb, craved books because I couldn t stand my own actions in a blu [...]

    4. It has been a long time since I have fallen so hard for a contemporary YA novel I have barely heard of any buzz surrounding Laura Nowlin s debut I ordered it on a whim, not really sure what to expect I liked the cover, the premise sounded like my kind of thing and I always like the chase of finding a YA book free of preconceived hopes and praise I was unprepared for justhow goodthis book is, easily my favourite YA book of the year so far and it now sits on my favourites shelf.Nowlin is a born st [...]

    5. Omg my heart This has been a roller coaster of emotions for me, I mean, literally.At one point it was fine and then angry, then frustrated, then sad and happy and nfjdsnfkjd, I could not with my temperament on several occasions, especially with the decision of Autumn and their behavior I did not understand why she was taking it.But besides that and I have cast me angry sometimes lol, I really liked this book, the story is good quality and keeps you trapped all the time, I m not a contemporary pe [...]

    6. This book could have been epic The beautiful cover and the description of this book lured me in and I couldn t wait to read this story I knew from the description, that a tragedy would occur I was than prepared to take the journey and meet Autumn and Finny The part that I wasn t prepared for was the abrupt anticlimactic ending The story brings a reader through four years of high school with the back ground of Finn and Autumn s neighbor best friend family relationship that has now become straine [...]

    7. Dear Book,you broke my heart I hate you and adore you at the same time and I definitely won t forget you for a long timeReview to come

    8. IF The saddest word in the English dictionary.OkayNo, wait I m not okay.If there s one thing that I can proudly say about If He Had Been with Me, it s that it can make you sad I wouldn t normally like this book because bestfriends, highschool, drama and first love are the key words that let me know that I will soon be frustrated with what I am reading.But that was not the case with this book.I love this I devoured it in one sitting and though it didn t shatter my already cynical heart, it did cr [...]

    9. I don t know where to start.I knew this book would bring me to tears and that it has, but only the last couple of chapters I enjoyed this book, getting to know the characters inside and out,but with a book like this you know the end isn t going to end well, mainly cause the first chapter tells you soI was am heartbroken as I write this, still swiping tears away If you are a fan of the love me with lies series then you will love this book, it has the same edge to it and flow, it will lift you up [...]

    10. Heartbroken Sad.Depressed Inconsolable Melancholic Unhappy Grief stricken Forlorn.Gutted Torn Devastated If you re wondering, I didn t cry But it s not because I m a callous, unemotional bitch I m just so over that now and crying doesn t even come close to what I want to do I want to hit someone, burn throw something, scream, go lock myself in a very dark room and just confine myself to that space for a very very long time Don t you get it, this book has totally KILLED me My chest hurts, and my [...]

    11. Actual Rating 2.5 5 starsI was actually enjoying this book despite it s not very unique storyline I cared about the characters The romance was SO good that this book could ve been a new favorite of mine butThe ending just ruined everything, really For me, anyway I wished I didn t read that part.The plot Autumn and Finny are best friends since birth, literally The Mothers , as they call them, are also best friends so they were with each other before they re even born As they grew up, they drift a [...]

    12. Reading this book was like listening most hauntingly beautiful and sad song You know it will make you sad and leave you heartbroken, but you can t stop even if it hurts We, masochistic readers, we know it, we understand it and still, we do it All we can do is suffer the pain, and tell ourselves it was well worth it Sad things can be beautiful That s exactly what Autumn said and noone understood her Well, Autumn and Ms Nowlin, we understand you and we appreciate the pain It was well worth itWell, [...]

    13. Whenever I pick up a novel, I dive head first hopeful that the characters will have their happily ever afters I picture their romance in my head like an endless reel of a silent movie their first meeting will be perfectly awkward and the relationship to happen in a slow but realistic build up that would have me anticipating and salivating for their fruition But when the two characters wasn t really working so good for me, I d also find myself wishing that they don t get together at all This book [...]

    14. Find my reviews here Literary Meanderings If He Had Been With Me opens up to Autumn, our protagonist, thinking back to the fateful August night when her best friend Finny was involved in a tragic accident They were arguing No one ever says what they were arguing about It is, in other people s opinions, not important to the story What they do not know is that there is another story The story lurking underneath and in between the facts of the one they can see What they do not know, the cause of th [...]

    15. It s a pattern Every time around this time of the year, I find myself drifting away from my reading and reviewing obsession It s not because I want to It s because circumstances around me eventually make me It s the start of summer here And there are SO MANY things to do There are those annual fests and functions to be part of Lots of camping to do Lots of catching up to do with my family and there is lots of travelling Amidst it all, my reading just falls behind and then I don t even feel like [...]

    18. Pre read I m so happy I was approved for the galley of this, looking forward to reading it Also, look at the cover o_O It s beautiful.Post read Solid read, if a bit fragmented in places I liked Autumn s journey, even if I had an idea of how most things would happen.Full review If He Had Been With Me is a journey that s immersed around a tragedy, and that s something you get from point one in this book by Laura Nowlin It surprised me how it drew me into the narrative even when I knew how things w [...]

    19. Man, there are a lot of reasons why I wouldn t normally like this book I mean, the whole thing is set up for drama, being that it s bookended by a major death The writing style is also somewhat distant, which also doesn t normally work for me, but for some reason I didn t mind it here Reminded me a lot of Winter Longing What can I say, it s angst done very well.

    20. I m so sorry I missed this debut when it first came out, but glad I stumbled upon it now Easily the best YA book I ve read all year perhaps my new favorite Loved everything about this one the plot, the tropes, the characters, the beautiful, intelligent writing Absolutely fabulous Read it on Kindle, but just ordered a print copy because this is a keeper for sure

    21. I had such a visceral and emotionally charged reaction to this book I wish my vocabulary was enough to sufficient describe how amazing this book was, I wish I had the power of persuasion that could convince the most reluctant readers to give If He Had Been With Me a chanced I guess this review will have to suffice Sometimes sad things are beautiful This sentence not only perfectly describes this novel, but also my experience reading it By the end, I was in tears, a huge emotionally wreck, but at [...]

    22. Finny, the all star soccer player, and Autumn, the artistic sensitive soul, have always been connected To outsiders, this couple seem as mismatched as a Capulet and a Montague As many in their world judge them by appearances, Nowlin subtly introduces her audience to two souls growing together with intertwined lives that defy traditional stereotypes Raised by The Mothers with absentee fathers in neighboring houses, Finny and Autumn resist natural boundaries that normally separate friends from fam [...]

    25. I finished If He Had Been With Me a few hours ago, and I still sit here not quite knowing what to say This book, it did quite a number on my emotions That s a good thing I think I m still in shock over the conclusion of the story I don t know why I found the ending so shocking, I was clearly warned in the opening that If He Had Been With Me would not have a happy ending Maybe it s because I am a hopeless optimist who always believes that every story has a happy ending I would also say my heart f [...]

    26. why did he die why did he die why did he die why did he die why did he die why did he die.I chanted that to myself, crying myself to sleep after reading this book.I remember it clearly I finished the book at exactly 11 40 PM EST, and I spent a minute just feeling an emotionless thought And then the tears came.And I texted my friend, telling her THAT I AM SO DONE WITH LIfe.Actually, I am.See, when I think of books, I think of alternate universes I think of supernatural things that can t be actual [...]
