    Captivating story

    There was so much to love about this book. It was almost a magical experience reading this book. The story just kind of sprang to life for me and I was really swept away by the story. I couldn't get this story out of my head and if I had a moment free I was reading this book. This was a book that I quickly learned to expect the unexpected and just let the beauty of the storytelling take over. Simply put, this was an amazing book. Jack goes by many names. She answers to Jack, Junior, and June but her real identity is wrapped up in the fact that she is an O'Donnell. Her family has a long standing feud with the neighboring family named Angert. Jack doesn't have a whole lot of rules that she has always been told to follow but staying away from the Angerts is one of them. Saul Angert is back in town and it doesn't take him very long to cross paths with Jack. His family has also told him to stay away from the O'Donnells for his entire life. The problem is that they don't want to stay apart and are in fact drawn to each other. They start spending more and more time with each other and strange things begin to happen. The magical realism in this book was wonderfully crafted. There are ghosts and pieces of light that let you see the memories of those that came before. If you leave your shoes unattended, the coywolves will most likely steal them. Jack and Saul both get swept up in the memories of their ancestors and start to unravel the true reason for the long standing feud. I cannot say enough good things about the writing. This is a story that was beautifully told. I loved how easily the author was able to blend the magical elements into our contemporary world. The relationships in the book felt very authentic and I ended up loving all of the characters. I had no idea where this book would end up and to be honest I didn't care since I was having such a good time on the journey. I would highly recommend this book to others. I enjoyed Emily Henry's debut novel, The Love That Split the World, but loved this one even more. I can't wait to read Emily Henry's future works. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Penguin Group - Razorbill via First to Read.

    Book Shaped Magic

    The books that end in: a) Ugly crying in the middle of a crowded airplane in the middle of the night and b) Forgetting heavy turbulence in a two flight binge read Are ones that fall into the REALLY REALLY GOOD variety and A Million Junes was one of them. I haven’t read Emily Henry’s debut novel, The Love That Split The World that released last year but there was a lot of hype surrounding it and it’s GORGEOUS cover and so when I got the opportunity to read A Million Junes this year, I JUMPED. Let it never be told that Emily Henry can’t create a story or chemistry on paper or make magic feel real because A Million Junes did ALL of the above and did it REALLY REALLY WELL. Thoughts: 1. A Romeo and Juliet Retelling! WOOHOO! (They’re not my favourite fictional couple but I do love retakes on classics) 2. THE CHEMISTRY OH MY GOD. June (Jack) O’Donnell IV and Saul Angert (aka Juliet and Romeo respectively) had this palpable, quick witted and undeniable chemistry that floated off the page and I loved it. There’s nothing better than star crossed, forbidden lovers with AMAZING chemistry to make you root for a romance. 3. This was so positively best friend positive. I loved the friendship between Hannah and June and this bond they had with each other. I loved that they believed each other, they supported and made fun of each other and I actually wish that there was more in the book that was just the two of them. 4. I loved the magic of the town of Five Fingers. There were so many stories, most of them unbelievable but they definitely added to the mystic element of everything. I liked the ghosts too, but I most definitely preferred the chemistry between Saul and June and their double dates with Nate and Hannah. 5. Honestly, the reason I closed this book with tear stains on the last pages is because of the magic that Emily Henry managed to create between June and her dad. It was honestly heart-breaking and so beautifully written and I find it so hard to explain but it just was something you NEED to read. I can’t capture the magic of this book because I don’t write like Emily Henry does. It was a truly astounding, gorgeously constructed, chemistry filled book that will stay with you long after you’re done. Magic in the shape of a book, I should call it, because everything about it was PERFECT. 5 stars.
