The Infinite Moment Of Us by Lauren Myracle

3 Stars

“It's what you feel, and guess what? Feelings are like three-year-olds. They're not rational. They're just there.”

17290266Ugh, this book. I feel like I have a lot to say about. I probably don't but I feel like it. First, I just finished it 10 minutes ago and I have that weird feeling in my stomach where I feel like crying. I don't know why I feel like crying really, well I mean I do, it's a very raw book but, I can read death scenes without feeling anything. Also, when I first got this book a few years ago, I won't lie, I wanted it because the cover is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

I'm going to start of with the thing that we all secretly want to talk about. Sex. There was sex in the book, yes, yes, yes. Now, this is cool, this is fine. It's about 18 year olds and love so there's probably sex but I feel like I need to discuss this because it was very much in detail. I don't mind a sex scene, they're usually well done and subtle enough that you don't know every detail but you still know it happened. Not to say this wasn't well done, I'm more talking about it for the benefit of anyone who want's to read The Infinite Moment Of Us because it's so detailed and it made me a little uncomfortable to read but in another way I was glad it was so thorough because I liked to know that sex isn't always perfect and that it hurt and it was kind of awkward. Too many times in books, sex is displayed (I mostly mean when girls lose their v-card) as perfect and wonderful but they don't talk about some of the pain or awkwardness. Anyway, my biggest point in mentioning this is so if you aren't comfortable reading about sex then this might not be the book for you. Although, if you want my opinion, I liked how straight forward it was.

I feel like that was a long talk about sex but moving swiftly on, I really like the book. It is so raw and I love raw. Also, Wren and Charlie have their issues because they're 18 and it won't be perfect. I like that this book exhibits that. It was a bit sudden and I, perhaps, would have liked more build up. Maybe a slower burn but it's whatever really, I don't particularly mind. Wren is such a sweet soul and reminds me of me, I over react over literally everything. Just like her. Charlie is really lovely too. I loved Tessa, why can't we all have a Tessa in our lives? She is such a gorgeous friend. I love her. She really wants the best for Wren and that is so precious and I love to see such lovely friendships in books.

I like it, it's a nice read. It's got the right amount of fluff (although, let's be real, there can never be too much fluff) it's got a little bit of drama. The end is fricking lovely. Possibly a little bit cringe worthy. What is there not to like? I couldn't tell you.

Also, take this masterpiece of a review I wrote when I was 14.

So sweet, so cute, so adorable, so much awkward sex scenes. If it weren't for how awkward the sex scene was I would love it I'd probably be giving it more stars.

I felt as though it was a bit too in depth. People have sex, we know, it just seemed like that was so much of the book.

I also feel that Charlie and Wrens relationship started too soon in the book and was too easy, it seemed like a dream come true. It wasn't exactly realistic, I would've enjoyed it more if the relationship was more realistic.

I think it was a very cute story, awkward but cute. I did like it, not as much as I had wanted to like it but I did like it

Ahh, look at me go. My precious lack of correct grammar and my extensive vocabulary. Oh, how my feelings have changed.


  1. The cover is gorgeous though! I'm sorry it was a little too in depth for you, I usually skim over sex scenes that are extremely descriptive, because they don't make me feel all that comfortable.

    1. Right? It's so pretty! Yeah, sex scenes in books don't really do it for me. It's just a bit too much to describe every little thing. I also think it makes the scene a little less 'magical'.

  2. The cover is DIVINE!! I agree! I kind of vaguely wanted to read this one but I haven't thought about it too much tbh.😂 There's so much to read haha. I also love how you compared it to your younger review...that's how I am with my old reviews. I look back at them and am glad I've improved.😂

    1. Too true! Way too many books and way too little time. Thank you! Looking back not only gives me a cringe-fest but also a lot of lols.
