Review: Monday’s Not Coming
Author: Tiffany Jackson
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Wow. Wow. Wow.
This book just broke my entire heart into a thousand pieces. If you know me by now, you know how dramatic and emotional I am. Still sobbing as I type this caption.
I was having a hard time understanding why this was hitting hard for me the way it was. And it wasn’t until the end that I realized why. While the ending was like sticking my face in a bucket of ice water…utter shock. It hit me like a bag of bricks. The feeling of losing your best friend, not knowing if you are ever going to see them again, struggling to move on without them. It all hit so close to home, that at moments I felt myself relating to Claudia and it made me so uncomfortable. .
Personally, my best friend since Kindergarten just up and disappeared one day. We were in our early 20’s at the time. No message, no indication why, no indication of where she was going or with who. Someone so vital to me, it was like losing a part of myself. The one person in the world that I thought at the time understood me. I get married this year and she was suppose to be standing beside me. I think what’s worse than her being gone is not knowing if she is okay, not knowing if she got to do all the things she wanted to do in this life….that hurts the most. So while this book caused all the tears, I think I was crying more for myself than I was for Monday or Claudia.
Until next time, Until the next book.
