I Am Too Tired to Type the Title
My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry: A Novel - Fredrik Backman,Joan Hustace Walker

Hey, another non-review from me. Imagine that!

 

I've been waiting for weeks (six of them, to be exact) for my turn in line at Overdrive to read this book. My number was finally called yesterday, just in time for my book meeting last night! Imagine the luck?! Grrrr. Guess that's what I get for being cheap but cheap I am and I'm glad of it because I would've wasted 11+ bucks on a boring book. I listened to about 2 hours of it before my meeting and was not thrilled with any of it and all of my friends who read it (3 of them, the rest were cheap like me) said it was boring and disappointing and that I will miss nothing by calling it quits now. So that's what I'm doing because

Sierra is on the run from her past just trying to get enough money to live on and to stay ahead of the past.  Sierra has trust issues which makes it very hard for her to trust Asher and open up with what is going on.

On Davis Row
On Davis Row - NR Walker

You get through life trying to be invisible. You think no one’ll notice you don’ read or write too well if you just hide in th’ background. Disappear. You think if they don’ notice you, they won’t ever know. Well guess what?” He slid his hand up to my neck and ran his thumb over my jaw. I couldn’t breathe. “I see you, Clinton Davis. I see you.”

 

And see him he did.

 

NR Walker has once again created such a touching and beautifully developed couple in CJ and Noah and a story that is so unique and quintessential Walker. My goodness, she even brought the act of hugging to all new heights.

 

My eyes burned with tears and I had to suck back a breath. I could feel myself about to cry and I forced myself to stop. But then he slid his hand around my neck and pulled me against him. In that safe and warm place I’d only ever known with him.
A hug. A simple fucking hug. His warm arms, gentle and kind touch, that I could feel sewing up the gaping holes in my heart, in my soul.
It was just a hug, but it wasn’t. It was so much more.
It was human touch. It was kindness and understanding. It was reassuring and soul-mending.
I clung to him, like a fucking kid. Like if I let go, I’d fall apart. And he held me, just held me without question, without judgement.

 

 

This is by no means a sex filled book. But the acts of love and commitment are far from absent. This relationship is just beautiful and the compassionate nature of Noah and the way Walker explores the lives and perceptions of those on Davis Row are quite compelling. I'd be lying if I said I never had these same perceptions about someone. Terribly accurate honestly and just sad when you fail to see things from a completely different perspective. I mean...

 

 

Yes, I thought of this often. It took someone with the wisdom of Atticus to see the truth that was Clinton and that person was Noah. This story was so well developed and not rushed at all. I loved Noah's "rule" and how this only heightened the sexual tension between them. Phew.

 

And I absolutely loved the epilogue here. It was so them.

 

He was everything I never knew I needed. He was everything I wanted, longed for, dreamed of, and never thought I could have.

 

Definitely another of my favorites for 2017 and one I look forward to revisiting time and time again.

On Davis Row - NR Walker

I wasn’t lying when I said it was about time the world saw the real CJ Davis. He was a good man. A good-hearted man who’d been dealt a really shitty life. The way he’d clung to me when I’d hugged him hurt my heart, like he was starved for affection. I wanted to hold him and never let him go.
