ARC Review: 100 Days of Sunlight

45431240. sy475 100 Days of Sunlightby Abbie Emmons (Goodreads Author)

When 16-year-old poetry blogger Tessa Dickinson is involved in a car accident and loses her eyesight for 100 days, she feels like her whole world has been turned upside-down.

Terrified that her vision might never return, Tessa feels like she has nothing left to be happy about. But when her grandparents place an ad in the local newspaper looking for a typist to help Tessa.

Knowing how angry and afraid Tessa is feeling, Weston thinks he can help her. But he has one condition — no one can tell Tessa about his disability. And because she can’t see him, she treats him with contempt: screaming at him to get out of her house and never come back. But for Weston, it’s the most amazing feeling: to be treated like a normal person, not just a sob story. So he comes back. Again and again and again.

Tessa spurns Weston’s “obnoxious optimism”, convinced that he has no idea what she’s going through. But Weston knows exactly how she feels and reaches into her darkness to show her that there is more than one way to experience the world. As Tessa grows closer to Weston, she finds it harder and harder to imagine life without him — and Weston can’t imagine life without her. But he still hasn’t told her the truth, and when Tessa’s sight returns he’ll have to make the hardest decision of his life: vanish from Tessa’s world…or overcome his fear of being seen.

My review

100 Days of Sunlight was a beautiful book to read, I loved every minute of it. I also loved every single one of the characters, even Tessa’s online Instagram friends. I could relate to this book on a personal level since I have a hearing disability, and I still loved the book.

I liked how Weston was simply there for Tessa, even when she came up with that poem that basically told him to go away. I can understand why he wanted to hide his disability from her. It would be nice to have that one person to see you for who you are. The whole plot just came together perfectly. I wish I had this book when I was in high school, it’s definitely something that the young adult crowd would need to read.

Everything about this book was simply beautiful. I definitely would recommend reading it at about any time. I loved the cover too! It is so pretty! The book is a five star read. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for letting me read this book. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

Hey guys! Sorry for not posting last week. My car left me stranded at my parents house last week and I was in a book slump BUT I did finish this book over the weekend last weekend before my car broke down. I ended up missing about three days of work, but all that is over. Sorry for the unexpected hiatus there! Go read this book! 😀

  1. Weston was such a star for me in this book. I loved his attitude, though not so much with the telling Tessa the whole truth thing. Still, he won my heart with his personal battle and how lovely he was with his brothers.

    1. I get why people are like that with the not telling truth thing, but… it’s like a fresh breath of air if you’re able to be completely yourself without that disability being the first thing you see. Disabilities place a huge part of disabled people’s lives and I think that was what the author was trying to point out.

      I’m so glad you were won over with the book! It just was so beautiful. 😀 I agree that he was a star especially in that one scene that would be a spoiler if I mention it here.
