My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received One Small Thing from Netgalley. I voluntarily read and reviewed it. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
I did not expect to get this book, but I was very happy that One Small Thing was my first Erin Watt book I read. I liked her style and definitely want to check out more of her stuff now.
One Small Thing deals with a family who is trying to pick up the pieces after their loved one died. Beth’s parents deal with her sister’s death by being extremely protective of her; almost to the point that they try to control her entire life. Beth spends most of the book trying to do her own thing anyway. And then she accidentally meets Charles.
Her friendship with Charles is basically like a screwed up Romeo and Juliet relationship, or a Spencer/Toby relationship from Pretty Little Liars. (I kept picturing those two during the whole book. I basically shipped them throughout the whole book.
The writing was well done and I even forgot the fact that I was reading an ARC book because I was enjoying it so much. I just liked all of the plots and turns and one particular scene at the very end. I’m trying not to spoil much here because I don’t want to spoil the plot. I also read this book in a day, which is hard for me to do these days. I stayed up late reading it also when I shouldn’t have.
Basically, you will want to read One Small Thing because it will tug at your heart because of all the emotions and characters. It was a five star read for me. I really didn’t have anything bad to say about this. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for letting me read this!
Oh, look! I actually posted a review! So sorry I’ve been a bit AWOL this weekend. I was relaxing before a busy work week. There’s a chance I may not do my weekly posts this week either, but I should be back to normal this weekend or next. I absolutely loved this book though! It was one of those reviews were I struggled to say why it was good. Sometimes I just want to say it’s good but I know reviews are all about the why it’s good part.
