“Who do you choose, Vannah?”

She’s standing at the door, her dark green eyes slicing open the distance between her gaze and mine. And I’m just staring back at her. And three thoughts are all that are on my mind:
I love this girl.
I love this girl.
I love this girl.
She takes a breath. I hold mine. And with that, a silent thought slips into my cadence.
I love this girl.
I love this girl.
I love this girl.
Choose me.

Choose me.

Salem and Savannah have known each other since childhood, and nearly every memory they each hold, they share together. But when Savannah tells Salem that her family is moving to South Carolina only days into their sophomore year of high school, Salem is devastated.

They vow to spend the rest of Savannah’s time in their small hometown, together, rewinding the last ten years of their young lives, until one day, Salem wakes up, and Savannah’s gone.

But that’s not the last time their paths cross. In fact, life continues to intertwine their stories, until one sunny afternoon, Salem walks into their hometown’s newspaper office and looks up to a familiar face. It’s Savannah, and she’s just the same as the last time he saw her. The only problem is, he’s not.

Based in small-town Missouri, A Bird on a Windowsill tells the story of a boy and a girl who share one past. And now, at twenty-three, having spent the last six years apart, they both must navigate the delicate line of loving and letting go, until they’re each faced with a choice that could change their future—and their story.

This is probably one of the most beautiful books that I have EVER read. I picked up this book on a whim because I loved the cover (it’s gorgeous) and because the blurb doesn’t give too much information as to what the story is going to be about so I thought it would be fun to go into it knowing nothing. OMG, I am so glad I read this beautiful, breathtaking, and emotional novel. The author writes a story that makes us want to fall in love all over again. The kind of love that will steal your breath every time your soulmate walks into your sight- the kind of love that never changes – and the kind of love that will last forever. Yeah, it did take Savannah and Salem awhile to get it together, but the journey was worth it in the end. How I have never heard of this author is beyond me, but you can bet that I will be reading more of her work in the future. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading this gorgeous love story. If you are like me, you will be utterly captivated by this one. Love, friendship, pain, and second chances are key themes throughout the novel, but once you get to the end (which you will need tissues for) every ounce of worry will be gone. Gosh, I simply cannot say enough good things about this book besides the fact that it is one of my favorite reads of 2016.

Usually, I will give a bit of information about this book so readers know what they are getting into, but I will not do it with this one. I simply think this is the type of book that you need to sit down and read without too much information going into it. Just be aware, once you get started with this book it is going to be VERY hard to put down. I read it in one sitting because I couldn’t put my kindle away. I had to see where everything was going and how it all panned out. So just take it from me… This is a beautiful, sometimes heartbreaking, emotional, and stunning read. It’s about friendship, love, and second chances. It is brilliant, unique, sweet, and charming. And most of all, it is about finding the one you love and holding onto it in your heart forever. READ THIS BOOK.
