2022 Book Review: 28 Summers

28 Summers by Elin Hilderbrand

Adult Fiction, 2020 by Little Brown Publishing, 485 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Although I appreciate why she chose to end this the way she did, I was not a fan of the ending. I think the way Jake and Mal’s story came to a conclusion was good but there was an opening where you were left to figure out what happened next to our beloved characters.
  • I didn’t care for Jake. As a main character I found him aggravating, but I still see the appeal. 

What I Did Like:

  • This story was great. You start out thinking you know how it will go and how it will end and although you know a portion no way can you imagine all the twists and turns it will take.
  • The way this was written allowed you to fully immerse yourself in their story, I felt like I could understand all the characters and what they were feeling and like I was in it. I felt the heartbreak, the betrayal, and the love right along with them. 
  • I loved Mallory. She is realistic and understandable, she was unapologetic when she needed to be but also just human enough for you to relate and love her. 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Everyone. This book will give you something to think about while tearing at your heartstrings and ultimately leaving you satisfied. 

My Rating: 4 stars
