Review- F*ck Love by Tarryn Fisher

F*ck Love on Goodreads

BOOK SUMMARY:

Helena Conway has fallen in love.
Unwillingly. Unwittingly.
But not unprovoked.
Kit Isley is everything she’s not—unstructured, untethered,
and not even a little bit careful.
It could all be so beautiful … if he wasn’t dating her best friend.
Helena must defy her heart, do the right thing, and think of others.
Until she doesn’t.

REVIEW:

After having tried to put down my thoughts about Tarryn Fisher's F*ck Love by almost writing two reviews for it, and changing my mind about both later, I have finally decided to divide my review in five parts, which will hopefully help both you and me understand exactly what my thoughts about the book are. 

MY THOUGHTS BEFORE READING F*CK LOVE:

TARRYN FISHER IS WRITING ABOUT LOVE!!! 

The title is on point. It has one of my most favourite and frequently used words. The cover is so gorgeous. Look at it! An almost bleeding heart held in a hand that has nails painted to black perfection with rose petals strewn across. Wow. Tarryn Fisher is on the back cover showing her middle finger and looking fine AF. 

TARRYN FISHER IS WRITING ABOUT LOVE!!! 


MY THOUGHTS WHILE READING F*CK LOVE:

Oh, my God! Tarryn Fisher is a Potterhead. Tarryn Fisher's writing is so beautiful and lyrical. Helena is amazing. She reminds me so much of myself. She is me. No, wait. She is Tarryn Fisher. This is so totally nothing but Tarryn Fisher's Instagram put into words. Why do the titles of the chapters have a hashtag? Is this Twitter? 

MY THOUGHTS TOWARDS THE END OF F*CK LOVE:

This book is called F*ck Love. Why is love happening then? Don't do this to me, Tarryn Fisher! Would it really end like this? Too many coincidences and that's something coming from Tarryn Fisher. I expect reality and not fucking roses from you, Tarryn Fisher. 

MY THOUGHTS AFTER READING F*CK LOVE:

Was I reading a book or stalking someone's phone? 

Helena is the most amazing character Tarryn Fisher has ever written about. Tarryn Fisher's wonderful description of Port Townsend has made me wanting to visit the place. Why couldn't this book end in a different way?

Was I reading a book or stalking someone's phone? 

MY THOUGHTS A FEW DAYS AFTER READING F*CK LOVE:


I may not like the story, but I get it. I may not get the story, but I appreciate it. I may not appreciate the story, but I understand it. I may not understand the story, but I think about it. I may not think about the story, but... but I can't. It has been on my mind since I was done with it, and I've started to realise that even though it didn't end in a way I would have liked, it was still very good. 

Now that we've gone through my stages of F*ck Love, it's time to summarise my final thoughts and I feel that's not going to happen because I don't have final thoughts. 

Would I ever forget this book? No. 
Would I reread it? Maybe. 
Would I recommend it? Yes. 
Was it worth writing three reviews for the book? Did I nail it? I don't know. You tell me.

  3. I've never read this author. And with that synopsis, don't think this is one I'll pick up and give a try. Thanks for the great review, I'll have to check out another one by this author to give her a chance, especially since she's a Potterhead!

  4. haha, yes you nailed it, I say! This review perfectly captures your feelings about the book at every stage in a hilarious way - that's what I call nailing it :D I've never read anything by this Tarryn Fisher, but I'm thinking I need to look into her books now. I do think there's something to be said about a book that sticks with you for days after finishing it - even if it didn't quite end the way you wished it would!
