So I did it. I finished Butterfly Weeds and I'm not quite sure if I am ready to talk about it yet!! But here it goes. It was an absolutely touching love story! And yes there were tears. Lots!! However, about half way through I had a hard time connecting with the story and the characters like I had in the beginning. I didn't happen again until the end. I'm not sure if that was due to my reservations about reading it or if I was protecting myself from getting too invested and trying to save myself from heartache. I was waiting for a bomb to drop and there wasn't one. I assumed it was going to end a certain way and it didn't. Maybe I should read it again. But not anytime soon. I need to read something funny or lighthearted to brighten my mood. By the end I was such a wreak that I was sobbing with nose blowing ugly tears. And I went to write my review earlier, I started tearing up again! This is a fictional story! What's my deal? I guess it really did get to me! So overall, I consider this a favorite but I don't think it will be one that I will read over and over again.
