Review

All This Time is a YA contemporary romance like nothing I’ve read before. Kyle and Kim are the perfect high school couple. They been together forever and have even planned their college prospects around each other. The book starts the night of their graduation party. Their whole class is gathered to celebrate moving on to the next chapters of their lives and Kyle is preparing to give Kim the gift he’s been working on for weeks, the perfect thing that will help them be that strong couple he knows them to be. But Kim has a surprise of her own for Kyle. She’s been keeping a secret from him. They drive off from the party in the rain, arguing about their future and the unthinkable happens.

When Kyle wakes up he finds out that he and Kim were in a terrible accident that left him with a brain injury and Kim dead. We watch Kyle struggle with the loss and struggle to recover and find a new normal. When he finally decides to visit Kim’s grave, he finds Marley. A girl so different from Kim, but who has also experienced a loss and can relate to Kyle in ways no one else seems to be able. Marley reminds me so much of Luna Lovegood in the way she seems older than her years and also a bit mythical.

Kyle finally begins moving on and things are looking up. He has a job and a possible girlfriend, he is recovering from his brain injury. But all along things have also felt off, strange. He’s seem Kim’s ghost and heard things that weren’t really there. Some of this he can write off as his brain healing, but is there something more?

This book broke my heart over and over again. It is a rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish. I found myself unable to put it down, and routing for Kyle to recover and enjoy his life again. There are many, many twists with this book, some things I guessed, and some I never expected.

Thank you so much to Rockstar Book Tours for having me and be sure to check out all of the other tour hosts!

Copy of Book Quote

“Even if I could picture it, there’s no way I can move forward now, haunted by the ghost of my girlfriend.

Ex-girlfriend, I correct myself. And somehow that makes it worse. Like I don’t have claim to the grief inside me. Just the blame.”

-Mikki Daughtry & Rachel Lippincott, All This Time

Synopsis: Kyle and Kimberly have been the perfect couple all through high school, but when Kimberly breaks up with him on the night of their graduation party, Kyle’s entire world upends—literally. Their car crashes and when he awakes, he has a brain injury. Kimberly is dead. And no one in his life could possibly understand.

Until Marley. Marley is suffering from her own loss, a loss she thinks was her fault. And when their paths cross, Kyle sees in her all the unspoken things he’s feeling.

As Kyle and Marley work to heal each other’s wounds, their feelings for each other grow stronger. But Kyle can’t shake the sense that he’s headed for another crashing moment that will blow up his life as soon as he’s started to put it back together.

And he’s right.
