Review: Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone

Posted by

I’m not really sure if I should even be calling this book review a review because I’m kind of speechless when it comes to reviewing this book. I’m not sure what to say and I mean that in the best possible way! 

Also I don’t want to give spoilers because I really feel like this is one of those books you just have to read & allow the story to develop on it’s own.

But here goes…..

I felt this book deeply, I felt for Sam, I wanted to help her, to be her friend, to listen to her. I loved Caroline for being unapologetically herself, for being a true friend to Sam when she really needed it, for saving Sam! I was not expecting the plot twist that Caroline turned out to be. I was completely unprepared for that revelation & it saddened me so much for Sam, & for the girl Caroline used to be.

This book is a real look at what it’s like for some people living with mental disorders. Sam has “pure O” OCD, which is described as being a more mental obsession than a physical compulsion. Sam is in a constant battle with the obsessive thoughts that sometimes frighten her. While the story centers around her we also get important pieces of the characters around her & their trials & tribulations.

I’m going to cut this review very short because I honestly don’t want to give the story away. I usually have no issue throwing some major spoilers into my book reviews but this story shouldn’t be told half way.

The story is well written, the author captured the characters & really brought them to life. It was easy to become engrossed in this book. Highly recommend! 

I give this book 4 stars & I think this book would also make for a great movie!

THIS IS A MUST READ!
