Letters to Eloise is a heart-wrenching story that is extremely well written and had an unexpected ending. The style of the book was unusual as I’ve never read a book that’s written as a diary/letter entry before. I thought it was a nice touch to be honest and makes you as a reader connect with the book more.
I don’t know where to start with how much I enjoyed this book because I think it has such high potential with character development. Flora is a great character and you seem to be willing to learn more and more about her with every page turn.
The back story between River and Flora made me envy their relationship in a way but they are also extremely normal. We all have our fallings out with one another but River didn’t give up, he believed in what they both had. Tate however really grated on me. He was written exactly how he needed to be so you grow mixed emotions towards him. For me, he was as horrible and I disliked his character more than I do cheese and onion crisps.
It was important to have various main characters in this book especially because Emily writes about real situations during pregnancy. Everyone needs a friend like Brooke and what happens between them might be expected to happen between two friends in the real world.
There were some parts which I thought could have maybe been shortened but it didn’t make me dislike the book in any way. I think I struggled the most with trying to understand Flora and Tate’s relationship and what Tate was trying to get out of it – especially with the skiing part.
I have always said in my book reviews that I hate giving spoilers away so I tend not to speak about the book too much but this is a must read. I was finishing the book on the train and as soon as I read what I did I put my hand over my mouth. Please make sure you read this all the way through as you will not be disappointed.
