Book Review: All This Time by Mikki Daughtry and Rachael Lippincott

Title: All This Time

Author: Mikki Daughtry and Rachael Lippincott

Length: 322 pages

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Synopsis: Kyle and Kimberly are the perfect couple. At least that’s what Kyle’s always thought. But when Kimberly breaks up with on the night of their graduation party, Kyle’s entire world is turned upside down – literally. Their car crashes, and when Kyle wakes up he has a brain injury. Kimberly is dead. No one in his life could possibly understand… Until Marley. Marley is suffering from her own loss, a loss she thinks was her fault. As Kyle’s and Marley’s feelings for each other grow stronger, Kyle can’t shake the sense that he’s headed for another crashing moment, just as soon as he’s started to put his life back together. And he was right…

Okay, so I might be one of the few people on this planet who hasn’t read Five Feet Apart, so I really didn’t know what I was getting myself in for.

In All This Time, we follow Kyle who after a tragic accident where his girlfriend is killed, has to find a way to move on with his life and maybe find love again.

Damn, I enjoyed this book. It was everything I wanted it to be. It was sweet, romantic, emotional shocking, there was twists and turns and ugh I just loved it.

I really enjoyed the characters in this book. Kyle was a great character to follow, you really see him grow and learn who he is. I also really loved his relationship with his mum. I also loved Marley, her story was really emotional. It full of great characters and they all added to the plot really well and created some good sub plots for Kyle.

The romance was so incredibly sweet. I thought for a while it might be too sweet but who am I kidding, I loved it! It was a slow burn and so romantic. It was also entwined with the Kyle and Marley finding themselves again while they find each other and I really enjoyed that aspect. They gave me all the feels, they were end goals. Loved, loved and loved.

Oh my gosh, that twist. I didn’t see it coming. At all. I was so unbelievably shocked. And I was devastated. Literally devastated. I had to put the book down and just gather my thoughts. And then I couldn’t sleep because of the twist. My gosh it was a good twist.

Then as the story continues and I managed to control my emotions again, there was another twist. I couldn’t believe it. It nearly finished me off guys. Mikki and Rachael, what are you trying to do to me?? I had to finish this book (like I wouldn’t?) but I had to see if there was a happy ending. No spoilers.

I loved this book, it really was an emotional rollercoaster as I’m sure you could tell by my review. It was just so heartfelt and beautiful. Now I’ve obviously got to read Five Feet Apart.

Thanks to Hashtag Reads for gifting me with a copy of this book in return for an honest, unbiased review. It’s out now.

Until the next review

  1. First, let me just say that I LOVE the covers on this and Five Feet Apart! They aren’t the most complicated of covers, but they are just lovely! Second, I did enjoy Five Feet Apart. I don’t know what it is, I just like books that punch me in the heart and make me cry! FFA didn’t give me that much heartache though, so that’s why I have steered clear of this one a bit! But if this one is as devastating as you say? Maybe I will bump it up on the TBR a little bit! 😉
