Things We Know by Heart Reviews
Official Rating 3.5
This book is really emotional, especially in the beginning; my heart was torn into a thousand pieces. I think that the author captured sadness extremely beautifully, the way she wrote how sad losing someone you love is so heartbreaking.
I would have given this a 4.5 stars if I could have felt more connected to the protagonist, somehow her narration was exceedingly heartbreaking and the way she's perceive the world after the traumatic event she'd through has left her so broke ...more
Honestly?? I don't even know who I am right now because I just five starred the most cheesiest, cliché and predictable book with.......INSTA LOVE.
I mean, falling in love with the dude who has your dead boyfriends heart transplant?? Sign me up lmao.
But, there's more than that to this book. It's about taking learning to give yourself the happiness you deserve and moving on. There's nothing wrong with moving on. Yes, it is the absolute worst when someone you loved so so much is taken away and it' ...more
♥ Another story that steals my breath away...
I can hardly explain it, can barely describe the amount of happiness I felt bursting from my heart when I picked up this book, but know that this story is totally and utterly beautiful, sometimes in such an aching way, sometimes filling one's heart with so much delight.
There is grieve, there is love, there is hope, there is happiness.
Jessi can create the most romantic and lovely moments ever, also the deepest and the most heartbreaking, leaving you ...more
“Little victories, they're the ones that counts.”
This was such a heartwarming book. I enjoyed the romance (even though I wished it was a bit more slow burn), I liked the MC's grandmother (such a diva!) and older sister. It was a story of grief and guilt. Moving on and falling in love again. It was sweet and sad and inspirational sometimes. But it was also quite cheesy. A bit too much for me. While I enjoyed reading this book, it was sadly nothing special in the contemporary genre for me.
There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart. Pursue those.”
What a beautiful, quick read! I liked it but didn't love it, though. It's one of those books that you'll adore while reading but will forget in the long run. But it's a perfect summer read!
P.S. Colton was really adorable. ALL THE FEELS

“Four hundred days and too many heartbeats to count.
Four hundred days and too many places and moments where Trent no longer exists.”
This was an okay story, but it felt quite average, which is odd considering what it’s about.
I felt quite sorry for Quinn, she obviously really missed Trent, and losing him so suddenly was really difficult for her. I understood the way she want ...more
No wonder the heart literally hurts when you’re in emotional pain. It is, after all, the organ that works overtime daily. Imagine how it beats approximately one hundred thousand times a day. Poor organ. But that’s not the point of the book. I was just really impressed by this factual information presented in it.
Now onto the review. The book was released in 2015 but only around December of 2017 did a copy finally grace our local bookstores. I have always wanted to read Things We Know by Heart si ...more
