Review: Wow!!! This book was epically amazing! When first reading this story, I felt it was going to be a simple and cute love story….
You and I belong together, it’s as simple as that. I’ve waited for you my whole life, I’m nothing without you. We’ll make this work, I promise.
I couldn’t have been more wrong! As things progressed I was thrown for twists and turns that I had no clue were coming! I absolutely adored Erica! In so many ways I was Erica. Erica loved others to a fault and felt out of step with her friends.
Annie Woods based this book off of actual life experiences. I was thoroughly impressed and enjoyed this book so much. Annie took her life experiences and weaved through these pages passion and talent creating a Young Adult Masterpiece that I won’t soon be able to forget. First Came Forever made me feel so much emotions and I felt like I couldn’t fathom waiting for the sequel! I give this book 5+++++ royal stars out of 5! I didn’t realize all the feels this book gave me! I couldn’t recommend this book enough! There also was some LGBT+ friendly stuff in here which I enjoyed. If it wasn’t the holidays with sick kids I would have finished this within hours!
Oh and I usually don’t like love triangles but this book had so much more to it than that! I will have to say after a certain incident didn’t sit well with me, I am #TeamTyler but man are my feelings all out of sorts! My only problem is how could you leave us with that ending Annie and make us wait?!! #WorthIT
I also want to do a shout out to Adrienne @ Darque Dreamer Reads for fangirling with me throughout my reading of this book! She just made things even more AWESOME! In the link above and HERE you can find her review of First Came Forever. She also posted a Q & A with Annie Woods with it!
One more thing I wanted to add is that not only was this book awesome so was the author. I was kind of scared that after making friends with Annie that I would hate if I didn’t enjoy this book. Well all of my fears were put at bay when reading this book and realizing it’s now one of my favorites of all time. I can see why Erica is based off Annie and why me and Annie connected! She even sent me a sweet signed copy! Yay! First Came Forever by Annie Woods is highly recommended!🤗💟😁😍💃💝📚
