These letters are often all that get me through week to week. Even if it’s just random stuff, nothing important, they’re important to me. Gramps is great, and I love working on the ranch.

But…I’m lonely.

I feel disconnected, like I’m no one, like I don’t belong anywhere. Like I’m just here until something else happens. I don’t even know what I want with my future. But your letters, they make me feel connected to something, to someone. I had a crush on you, when we first met. I thought you were beautiful. So beautiful. It was hard to think of anything else. Then camp ended and we never got together, and now all I have of you is these letters.


I just told you I have a crush on you. HAD. Had a crush. Not sure what is anymore. A letter-crush? A literary love? That’s stupid. Sorry. I just have this rule with myself that I never throw away what I write and I always send it, so hopefully this doesn’t weird you out too much. I had a dream about you too. Same kind of thing. Us, in the darkness, together.

Just us.

And it was like you said, a memory turned into a dream, but a memory of something that’s never happened, but in the dream, it felt so real, and it was more, I don’t even know, more RIGHT than anything I’ve ever felt, in life or in dreams. I wonder what it means that we both had the same dream about each other. Maybe nothing, maybe everything. You tell me.




We’re pen pals. Maybe that’s all we’ll ever be. I don’t know. If we met IRL (in real life, in case you’re not familiar with the term) what would happen? And just FYI, the term you used, a literary love? It was beautiful. So beautiful. That term means something, between us now. We are literary loves. Lovers? I do love you, in some strange way. Knowing about you, in these letters, knowing your hurt and your joys, it means something so important to me, that I just can’t describe. I need your art, and your letters, and your literary love.

If we never have anything else between us, I need this. I do. Maybe this letter will only complicate things, but like you I have a rule that I never erase or throw away what I’ve written and I always send it, no matter what I write in the letter.

Your literary love,


My thoughts:

Holy smokes!! This was the first book of Jasinda’s that I have read an it did not disappoint to say the least this is completely and utterly an emotional roller coaster. I had to read some of the book through tears.

Ever and Cade meet at summer art camp and there both 14/15 at then time. When they leave camp, they decide that they want t become pen pals which I thought was cute. They write one another all the time telling one another everything about the daily lives. Ever feels like she can tell Cade anything and he wont judge her an Cade loves every letter that Ever sends him. When reading there letters you can tell they have a connection even thought they never dated at camp. Reading all the letters that they sent to one another I think was my favourite part of the book because you get to know Ever and Cade better.

Going into this book I had no idea that it was going to be so emotional. My heart broke for Cade with all the things that he was dealing with. No matter what Ever was always there for him.

When Cade an Ever meet again after years of writing letters to one another I couldn’t be happier.

THE ENDING TO THIS BOOK! OMG WHAT?!?! It was such a cliff hanger I hated it. But all an all was an amazing book
