Waiting for You - Shey Stahl 3.5 stars

“A story about a girl and boy who were so lost they couldn’t see what was right in front of them. It was our deal.”

I really wanted to like this book more and, in parts I truly, truly did......I loved Dylan and reading his POV and I loved the last 30% of the story!!! I felt the emotion and found it quite moving.

The problem for me, I think, is that I found it a little sappy. Don't get me wrong, I love a good 'love story' and on reading the synopsis this seemed the perfect book for me but I found it sometimes laboured the point a little too much.

Having said that I really liked some of the quotes from the book and found them to be very profound and touching.

“Don’t have regrets or second thoughts,” she told me. “Love. Love with all your heart, every piece of it. Love anything as much as you can.” Just lovely ♥

“What if we are two old souls destined to find each other? A missing piece brought together by fate. And what if we don’t have all the time in the world? Life is short, really f***ing short when you think about it.”

“I believed that if there was someone out there for me, my soul mate, I would find a way back to them.”

One of my favourite parts in the book is when Dylan and Bailey discuss his Hummingbird Tattoo.....I was swooning and sighing at this part
“The words around it say ‘She holds the power to which she will never know’.” Simply beautiful!!!
