“It all starts with a song. Maybe it’s time I finish mine.”
– Erin Hahn
When I first saw You’d Be Mine and read the description for it I was expecting a cute summer read like Emery Lord’s Open Road Summer; It wasn’t like that at all. You’d Be Mine had so much depth and feeling in it that calling it a “cute and light summer read” would be a disservice. This book deals with the heavy issues of loss, depression, and coping in all the wrong ways but does so in a relatable way. Our two main characters are not flawless but they are strong and I was rooting not only for them to be together but for them to also really find themselves and move on from their troubled pasts.
This was such a cute read that will be perfect for anyone looking for that summer read! It’s a story about how life may not go just the way you thought/planned for, but how fate might have something even better in store. Both of the main characters experience significant changes in their lives and the story really showed them figuring out who they were through these changes. The main characters were really relatable and had a ton of character growth throughout the book.
