Kaceey’s Review:

All the stars ⭐️ 

I went into this read rather blind, as I do for most of my reads.  

At first, I was shocked, wondering what I had signed up for. But intrigued enough to continue.

Midway I was so captivated I could not put it down. Thinking about the characters any time I had to step away.  

By the end, I was in tears. Wanting to crawl into my book and hug the characters.

This is a story of life, strength, and resilience. It centers around 10-year-old Rae and her dog Splinter with their older, lonely, neighbor, Lettie. I am keeping it vague and let you discover the depth within the pages yourself.

Set a weekend aside, have your tissues handy, and enjoy! I cannot wait to hear what you all think!

Definitely one of my favorite reads for 2021.  

A buddy read with Susanne! Thank you Susanne for finding this gem for us!

Thank you to Elisha at Berkeley publishing for an ARC to read and review.

Susanne’s Review:

Simply the Best!!  Brilliant & Completely Heart-Wrenching!

When I picked “A Million Things” for my book buddy Kaceey and I to read, I had no idea what I was getting into, I saw that this novel had great ratings and that was all I needed to know.  

As soon as we started reading it, both of us were blindsided.  Shocked beyond all recognition if you will.

This book was NOTHING like anything we had ever read before and honestly, we both asked ourselves what we had gotten ourselves into… and yet we kept reading. There was just something addicting about it.  

Once we got a little bit further and realized what we were reading, we were all in.  Completely Hooked!

What became readily apparent is that “A Million Things” stole our hearts.  It is beautiful, devastating, gut-wrenching, and incredibly smart.  

So, what is it about you, ask?!  I wish I could tell you but that my friends would be spoiling the plot which, in this case, is something I just cannot do.  All I will say is that it features a young girl named Rae.  Bright, sweet, smart, and precocious, Rae captured my affection in every way possible.

The only other thing I’ll say is that this IS a MUST-READ!  It is truly one of the most incredible and inventive books I’ve ever encountered and it needs to be on your TBR. 

A buddy read with Ms. Kaceey that impacted us both greatly.  

Thank you to Elisha at Berkley Publishing Group via NetGalley for the arc.
