Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.
All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?February 8, 2019 at 6:02 pm #5758
Done. I thought the book was a very fast read, so I got through it pretty quick. Can’t say I hated it, can’t say I loved it.
I liked Quinn and Graham for the most part, so that was nice that the 2 main characters weren’t annoying me through the whole book haha! I thought the beginning of their relationship, the meeting and courtship in the past was fun to read about.
Once the time jumped to the present, and we had to read endless pages about the obsession with getting pregnant. Yeah, the book lost me there. It’s not that I don’t respect that issue or viewpoint, because I definitely do. I just don’t want to read about it for endless pages when I’m reading for pleasure. Like, I’d be reading about their past and was like “yay, fun.” And then the time would move forward, and I’m like “Debbie downer time.”
The end had a few good points. I liked how the fortunes turned up again. And I like how Quinn & Graham brought their natural humor to the situation they ended up in. I have a friend who does not want kids, and we joke with her all the time & she has the best sense of humor about it. It reminded me of that. But, OMG, there was too much cheese oozing at the end for me. The letters in the box. Barf. Booooring. And adopting a dog at the end. Ugh! Glad it ended right after that!February 15, 2019 at 3:41 pm #5777
I liked it okay.
I think the back and forth between their early years to their later struggles was done effectively. It’s easy to live through a marriage in the good times and those good times see you through the rough ones. I enjoyed their courtship and early marriage best.
Their struggles with infertility basically mirrored our own story so I definitely sympathized with that. 3 years, 36 months of “failing” and crying…it takes a toll on a woman. That part of her story got to me emotionally. I’m ‘glad’ (I say that loosely) that she ended up with hysterectomy….I don’t know if she could have conveyed where she was emotionally to him if she had to keep on hoping. I like that they got their happy ended — as cheesy as it was. I would have gotten a puppy too. lol
I really like the concept of the box of letters. It’s not easy to remember where you were when things are dark. And I thought it was nice that he was able to communicate to her in real time (kind of).
Overall I liked it. The latter part of the story was too poetic for me but the idea was good. I know a handful of sensitive men but even they don’t speak so poetically. 🙂
