Five Feet Apart book review

Hey! I guess this is my first book review! As I mentioned in a post recently I have been finding it hard to find a book to read, and I have finally found one that I really enjoyed reading! So I was in Kmart as you are! And I saw it sitting on the shelf and immediately I picked it up and read the blurb. I knew it was being released as a movie and I wanted to see it, but decided I’d read it first!  So I guess I’m going to start my review on Five Feet Apart.

Five Feet Apart is a co-written book by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconas, released prior to the movie (2019) in 2018. The book is based on the film adaption and is a dramatic, rom-com, that keeps you up at night wanting to read more. I found myself crying, laughing and feeling like I was a part of the characters, Stella and Will’s lives. Stella is sick and lives a life in order even with her messed up lungs that send her in and out of her second home, the hospital. Will is also sick, but in contrast doesn’t care about anything but getting out of the hospital he is placed in temporarily. Stella cares about the rules and is trying her best to stay alive and to receive a lung transplant, meaning she keeps the distance of six feet away from Will. But six feet apart feels like a punishment not the safety it once was. Was five feet apart really going to hurt her if she could never touch the person she loved. I cherished every moment I had with this novel and it was sad to say goodbye to it. I would absolutely recommend this to someone who enjoys reading and seeing film adaptions of books. I would rate this highly on a scale. I can’t wait to watch it now that I have finished reading it.

keep reading folks!

Hey unicornmel! I saw it the other day and I loved it but I think because I read the book first I had made all these images in my head and I got upset when in the movie it wasn’t what I had seen in my imagination hehe!
