Review: The Love That Split The World by Emily Henry

Author: Emily Henry
Published On: 1/26/16
Page Count: 316
I received this ARC for free in return for my honest opinion

Synopsis: (Found on Goodreads)
Natalie Cleary must risk her future and leap blindly into a vast unknown for the chance to build a new world with the boy she loves. 
Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start... until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.
That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.”

Overall Rating: 5/5
Overall this novel is a captivating read. Natalie has to make some tough choices but what really kept me reading was the glimpses of an unordinary world.


Cover: 5/5
This is gorgeous and I wish I did an IG photo of it instead of using a photo app. The colors are so bright and I love that the girl is unzipping the sky by falling.

Characters: 4.5/5
Natalie: She is ready to leave her small town behind and has all these goals. Nat doesn`t talk about “grandmother” much but her best friend at least supports her theories.

Beau: Dang this boy. With the piano playing and mysterious air about him I couldn`t help but want to know more about him. Even when he goes missing (it gets explained) I still have him on my mind because he is the one that progresses the storyline.

Grandmother: Now this is a character I could get into and understand. Her stories are amazing and kept me wanting more. I would sometimes have the same response Natalie would have but other times I would get it before her.


Plot: 4.5/5
This is very contemporary heavy however it has a fantasy feel as well. There is of course the idea of different worlds. Emily makes these subtle changes in each world that make the plot thicken because you aren`t sure which world Nat and Beau are in. Although some parts are slow and I tended to want to skim if you just stick it out it picks up I promise.


TTFN,
Ashley
