Seven Days in June: the instant New York Times bestseller and Reese's Book Club pick
About this deal
Fifteen years ago in high school, Eva and Shane had a euphoric week together that left them forever changed. Since then, they've each gone on to become best-selling authors, working out their heartbreak through their respective novels. When a chance encounter gives them another seven days together, they know they must give this second chance their all to see where it could lead. This was the perfect blend of sexy, romantic, humorous, and angsty, and I am definitely adding this author to my "authors to stalk" list because it was just that good.

I didn't disagree with it per say, but I just don't like it being shoved down my throat in a romance book like that. It could be very alienating to those who like myself, aren't American, or those who disagree. It felt like it was trying too hard, trying to fit too many things in. Generational trauma is a real and complicated thing to undo. I think it's interesting to look at past generations and current generations and see how they work through the things they've been through. As a millennial and proudly part of the first generation to talk about needing/encouraging people to seek psychological help -- this has been one of my favorite reads in a very long time. When the two meet in high school, it doesn’t take long for sparks to fly. While many have run away or fail to understand Eva’s condition, Shane is sympathetic and concerned.
After 7 days, could there be a chance to rekindle what they had and move on together from the past?
There is so much I am not saying bc this book touched on so many discussion worthy topics but then this review would be obnoxiously long so I will just leave you with some other quotes that I loved and some advice to do yourself a favor and read this book one day if you haven't already. 💙
Eva-Eva is one of the strongest fmc's I think I have ever read. Dealing with an absolutely devastatingly painful disability that she endures with so much grace she is determined to provide the best life that she never had for her daughter Audre. Putting a tragic and volatile childhood behind her full of drug abuse, self harm, suicidal thoughts and instability, she remakes herself but she never forgets the one person who really SAW her and stole her heart. Eva and Shane find each other at a time when they are both drowning in so much pain. I found their story to be so touching and also loved how they were anchors for each other. The generational trauma and the relationship with her mother was so upsetting but also so real and my heart squeezed for Eva the entire time. This book gave all me all the things, every emotion you can feel, it gave. Told in two different timelines, it was unflinchingly raw and honest and at the same time was layered with so many different types of love. Romantic love, parental love, friendship, student/teacher, community, and culture. From generational trauma, to dealing with a chronic debilitating disability to drug abuse and the struggle of single motherhood, this book doesn't shy away from difficult topics. Shane and Eva burrowed themselves into my heart, their stories are so heartbreaking and tragic but at the same time their resilience and strength is so beautiful and inspiring. I loved this book with my whole heart. 💙I gotta be cursed. Almost all of my incredibly anticipated 2021 releases are just not hitting for me. This book is totally worth reading. It builds a richly layered world and throws the readers into a deeply emotional story. It reveals views on various aspects of life based on observations of contemporary society. Better yet, Seven Days in June contains many excerptable quotes that you will want to save and use in your own writing or inspire your own life. Just give the book a go.
