THIS BOOK MADE MY HEART ACHE SO MUCH AND I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT.
This quiet YA read is a really lovely, though sad, exploration of grief and loss. It'll especially resonate for young readers who have a passion for music and the power for music to create meaning and feeling and connection.
Readers who need a plot arc will likely find this to be too slow, as it's far more about the characters and their feelings in the wake of profound loss than it is about a bigger story. But for readers who like emotionally complex reads, this will be a hit.
This book can simply be explained through one word in the title: a beauty. Except it's even more than solely beautiful. This novel was beautiful, emotional, meaningful, raw, honest, and realistic. Even with that list, it isn't enough to describe the pure masterpiece that was this story. Or stories.
First, this novel is filled with grief. I have to say that because as a reader, if you are in the midst of grief, it may not be the particular time to pick up this novel. It's an immensely hard and di ...more
I want to start this review by giving a massive trigger warning for this entire book because it strongly deals with grief and loss. The blurb just states that "tragedy strikes" for all the characters, not that someone important in their lives passes away. The novel does revolve around 3 different POVs and one of the deaths is a suicide so please be cautious when reading.
The characters were all compelling and engaging and their voices were distinct through the first half of the novel but once th ...more
Full review on The Candid Cover
The Beauty That Remains combines grief and music to create a poignant read. There are three different stories that all connect, and there is so much diversity in the book. While I liked all of the characters, Shay was my favourite, and her story touched me the most.
I am beyond broken.
I am shattered.
I received an eARC from Random House Children's through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE IN A WRITERS SLUMP?
LIKE A READING SLUMP BUT... FOR WRITING?
Generally, I'm the kind of person who likes to write my review for a book I've finished straight away, when my pain is still raw and my thoughts still completely hooked on that one book.
But right now, it's been 2 days since I actually finished The Beauty That Remains, and I'm still s ...more
This was a really solid read! The writing and plot really captured me on the first page, so much so that I finished this book in two sittings total. The writing is incredible, and I loved the slow-moving plot and bittersweet nostalgia. I enjoyed reading about the three main characters' struggles after the deaths of their loved ones, and I also appreciate the diversity that was so flawlessly included within these characters. Autumn is adopted and Korean, Logan is gay, and there are als ...more
