Review: Slow Dance

Slow Dance
Slow Dance by Rainbow Rowell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This will absolutely be one of my favorite reads of this year, hands down.

I loved Rowell’s Eleanor & Park years ago but I hadn’t read another novel by her in a long time. I wasn’t sure if this would read like YA even though it’s not. I was worried I might not like it.

But I was wrong.

I fell in love from the moment I started this story. Shiloh and Cary have known each other forever. They were best friends. And then they fell out of touch. And suddenly they see each other at a wedding. And they find their way back to each other.

Shiloh and Cary broke my heart and then put it back together. The emotion is so palpable and so beautiful in this story that it was impossible not to root for these two broken souls. It’s impossible not to fall in love with them.

Rowell knows how to write love. She does an exquisite job here. I won’t forget this story for a long long time.

with gratitude to netgalley and William Morrow for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review
