Parce que je t’aime (Because I love you) – Guillaume Musso
It immediately caught my attention upon its release, so I jumped on the bandwagon and haven’t looked back. This was my favourite book for a loooong time. Most people praise the style and the rollercoastery plot with endless twists and turns, but if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find out that there is so much more than meets the eye.
Anyway, as I’ve already mentioned, this was my fave book for a long time. It’s still in my top five. And not just because of the style, but the way even the deepest of emotions are conveyed – in a subtle, yet strong manner. I especially loved the character of Connor, because he understands human nature. He understands a person’s mind, how someone’s heart and psyche works and Guillaume gave us some of the best lines in the book through Connor.
The plot is simply incredible. I read the book in six hours and then I read it again and again. And I would read it a million times more, because every time I do I feel like I’m entering a secret, forbidden world made up of raw emotions, powerful bursts of energy, love and equally harrowing pain. I was initially put off, before I started reading, because I thought it was a chick lit, but it proved to be so much more. I strongly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a good story with a meaning and a terrific ending, regardless of your genre preference.
