The Hard Count, broke me in the most beautiful way. You know that feeling you get while reading an amazing scene or finishing an unforgettable movie? The one that almost seems like butterflies in your stomach. It's a type of giddiness that you wish would never go away. I had that feeling for more of this book than not and can still feel it. Yes, I finished this book about five hours ago, but can still feel that feeling! It is amazing.
Now, I generally don't have a favorite book. When people ask me to pick a favorite, I look at them dumbfounded. How in the world could I possibly pick just one amazing book when I have read so many?! Well, now I have two books and this one is my number one pick.
I just cannot begin to describe the way this book made me feel. I laughed, I was angry, I was confused, I cried, I smiled, I felt so many things throughout the course of this book.
Can I tell you what sealed the deal of how amazing this book was for me? I finished this book while walking to my first class of the semester this morning and was in awe. I could connect with so many parts and it gave me that giddiness feeling that I loved so much. I didn't really think about it in class, but as soon as I got out it was on my mind. I reread the last chapter and sighed in total contentment of finishing such an amazing book. But then, then as I was pulling into the parking lot of the mall to quickly grab my son some shin guards between classes, I started crying. And not just some tears, I was full on sobbing. Sobbing for me, sobbing for what Ginger Scott felt writing this book, sobbing for the characters, the readers, and anyone and everyone that can connect with this story.
That's how I knew this was a book I would never forget and would encourage every single person I know to read.
It broke me. It broke me hard, but it couldn't have been done in a better way. This is the type of book that makes you a better person for reading it. <3
Audio: I LOVED the audio for this book! I'm not sure it could have been done better! You could hear the emotions in the narrator's voice. You could feel the thoughts in the characters head. You could feel the story! This audio has set the bar for all audio books now and it is set high!
