Book Review: Bright Side by Kim Holden


I don’t know what I can say about this book that hasn’t already been said. I loved it. I loved the characters. It was amazing. It made me think. It crushed my heart and made me cry. It made me laugh. It made me want to be a better person. Has all of that already been said? Pretty sure it has. So, what to say, what to say…

One of my favorite things is finishing a book and feeling so emotionally drained that I have to sit and reflect on what I just read. That’s exactly what happened when I finished this book. I sat there. I reread the last paragraph. And then I sat there a little longer. I felt sad and a little bit happy at the same time. I wanted to hug the author and every single character in the book (except for one). Dammit, I didn’t want it to be over!

But that’s life, right? Things suck sometimes. Things change. Things end. And that’s what I loved most about this book. It was so real. Too real. That’s why it made me cry. But even if I didn’t have first-hand experience with the primary theme in this book, it still would have made me cry because Kim Holden did a masterful job of depicting what it’s like.
