Review: All My Perfects by Colleen Hoover

Quinn and Graham have a perfect love story, but their unique connection is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart, day by heartbreaking day. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair. So do they risk it? Is their history worth saving?

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple struggling with a relatable issue – infertility – whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. In Colleen Hoover’s inimitable style and brilliant narrative voice, this heartbreaking page-turner asks: Can a resounding love with a fairytale beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

Review by Trinette Dungee

Are you ready to cry? Are you prepared to have your heart pulled so hard that you’ll want to rip it out? Are you ready to just curl up in a ball and sit in a dark corner for about a day or two? If not then I suggest you set this book aside. 
It’s very hard to write about a Colleen Hoover book because you have so many emotions going through you; you just can’t put them into words. Then you have the task of expressing how you feel without giving away too much because you want everyone to experience everything exactly the way you did. 
What makes Graham and Quinn’s story a little different is that you go through and established relationship, meaning….they are married. You get a picture of their before they were married life and their after they were married life. Their marriage suffers some serious blows and you go through the rough times with them. There’s a point in the book, actually a couple of points, when I had to prepare myself for the possibility that these two might not make….whether they did or not, I won’t say.  As usual, Colleen writes so that you literally feel what her characters feel. When their feelings are hurt you get that tightening in your chest. When sadness takes over them, you have to put the book down and be sad too. 
As for the characters, I have to say I was much more team Graham than I was team Quinn…not that you had to pick a team. I just felt like Quinn kept so much to herself that Graham was damned if he did and damned if he didn’t; however, there times when I wished he showed a little more emotion. Quinn seemed to be so wrapped up in her own head sometimes that she was just too much to take. Graham and Quinn were characters that all of us probably know someone like them, they were so relatable and real and I think that’s the other thing that really made me like this book…the entire situation could have happened to anyone you know, or to you. 
For as heartbreaking as this story was, I really enjoyed it. I have to say the flashback weren’t so enjoyable, only because I felt like the minute you got into the meat of scene, it ended and you were thrown a flashback, but then again…that probably heightened the level of anxiety that made this a good read. If there was one thing this book didn’t have that I would have liked would have been Graham’s POV, this is told strictly from Quinn’s POV. 
In the end Colleen Hoover has given us another book that will have you totally in your feelings by the end. Thank goodness her books are stretched out, there’s no way I could read more than two of her books a year. I’d be on someone’s couch for sure seeking therapy.
