If I had to choose a book to live in forever, I would probably choose The Geography of You and Me. I’m not really sure why, but there was just something magical about it and it made me feel so much for it. This is my third Jennifer E. Smith book, and I am in love with her writing. I think this may be my favorite so far.
This book was not what I expected it to be in a way that it made me very emotional. So many parts of the book touched or moved me with too many feels to the point that I felt goosebumps rising on my skin every few chapters. There is just something poignant about their relationship that consisted of few encounters, postcards, and lots of distance. They were divided by states, and countries, and continents.
“They were like a couple of asteroids that had collided, she and Owen, briefly sparking before ricocheting off again, a little chipped, maybe even a little scarred, but with miles and miles still to go.”
– The Geography of You and Me (ARC)
I actually found this book to be quite sad because they spent most of the time apart travelling to different places. In truth, Lucy and Owen barely knew each other, yet I wanted them to be together. Jennifer E. Smith had me convinced that they belong together as they understand so much about each other. In this book, they took their time, and they would probably take more, but they just might be meant to be. It left me hopeful.
I love everything about this book. I love how they met during a blackout in an elevator. I love how they created their own Pointe Zero. I love how the book was divided up into parts with its own title that meant something to Lucy and Owen. I love the characters. I love how everything fell into place. I love the postcards and the travelling. I love how it made me feel.I love it all.
OVERALL, The Geography of You and Me is a book that truly touched me. This book may have scarred me a bit too, as the beauty of it all etched into my heart and mind. This book deals with so many themes – long-distance relationships, loneliness, family problems, dreams, places, and so much more. I easily connected with the main characters as they underwent happiness and conflicts, and I felt that the pacing was just right. Jennifer E. Smith’s writing was perfect to me, and I can’t wait to get my own copy of this book.
