NICUnurse’s Review of The Things We Leave Unfinished by Rebecca Yarros
Note from NICUnurse: I was fortunate enough to get an early advanced copy of this book. I wrote the review a month ago, and I am STILL obsessing over this book! It’s going to take a lot of work for another one to come along and knock it off my #1 Book of 2021 spot!
I fell in love with Rebecca Yarros’s writing with the very first chapter of her book, Full Measures. Each book of hers I’ve read since has been a wonderfully entertaining read. But this one. This one is phenomenal!
NICUnurse’s Rating: I’m not even sure where to begin with this book. There is so much packed between the covers. There are so many working parts that had to be executed flawlessly for it to flow well. It’s a story within a story. It’s a contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and it’s a historical romance with some elements of women’s fiction thrown in for good measure. The story follows our contemporary hero and heroine, Noah and Georgia, as well as our historical hero and heroine, Jameson and Scarlett. Told from four different points of view and with a nonlinear timeline, as well as a few letters from our historical couple, it’s wonderfully complex yet incredibly easy to read and follow the plot. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to read this one because it’s not a quick read, and once you dig in, you are not going to want to put it down.
This book evoked so, so many emotions. From the frustration, admiration, and animosity of Georgia and Noah, to the epic love story of Jameson and Scarlett, then the intense desire to know how it all played out regarding the unfinished book’s real and fictional aspects, at any given point in the story, I wasn’t sure what I was feeling all of my emotions were so entangled. I don’t usually care for historical romances, but the way this one was packaged in this particular book, I was riveted. I could go on for days waxing poetic about just how much I loved this book, but I’m afraid I would end up spoiling some aspect of the story for readers, and that would just be…tragic.
Obviously, I’m a huge fan of Rebecca Yarros’s books, and I’ve honestly loved them all. But I must say that this is her best work yet. It takes immense talent, as well as skill and imagination, to write a story like this, and I’m beyond impressed at how seamlessly she makes it seem. I’m positive this book will top my Best Reads of 2021 list! If I could give this book more than five stars, I would do so in a heartbeat.
I give The Things We Leave Unfinished by Rebecca Yarros 5 out of 5 propellers!
