Life is meant to be lived, and if you’re offered the chance to experience things with an extraordinary person, then there isn’t one reason in the world to say no.”Excerpt from: P

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Lilly Evans and Colton Neely were once friends when they were younger. Their bond is cut short due to her accident prone nature and they go their separate ways. Years later, they meet again and Lilly learns that there is something special about the boy she once knew, but she has no idea what it all means. And she’s not sure if she’s ready to find out.
Their friendship grows into love, even as Colton does not express it in words. But one decision threatens to break down the world that Lilly has tried so hard to integrate into and she must figure out if the relationship can survive if they are apart.
Every time I read a romance novel, a handful only make me continue the tale, and the most of them make me stop in the midst. So when I come across a romance story that captivates me till the very end, I excitedly promote it to all of my friends, and Puddle Jumping is my all-time favorite.
Simply sharing my all-time favorite romance book. Actually, I’ve read this book several times before, and people who know me well understand that I can’t stand reading romance novels since I always find the plots to be underdeveloped and uninteresting.
I’m not sure how I came upon this book. I don’t have the physical one. I just finished reading this one on my ibook, and I never expected it to be my favorite. I finished this book in one sitting. That’s how this book captivated me. I can’t seem to get enough of it. I was smitten with Lilly and Colton’s love tale. A narrative like that will appeal to everyone. How genuine their love is for each other, despite their vast disparities and other repercussions. In this work, I definitely felt Lilly’s problems or troubles. It was terrifying for a teen like her, but I was astonished at how she handled it. I liked her a lot.
I’m thrilled to learn that there will be a sequel to this story. I really want to get my hands on a copy, but I have no clue when it will be available. I wholeheartedly suggest it to any bookworms out there.
My Overall Rating
Here are a few highlighted quotes from the novel, along with my thoughts on them.
I think sometimes we’re presented with the truth but we don’t want to believe it. We see things the way we want to see them. Sometimes, we choose to live in denial.”
Most of us choose to live in denial rather than confront the reality because we are terrified of the truth. Some of us believe that the truth can ruin us. Because of this, some people could believe that it is preferable to remain in the dark than to suffer any kind of harm.
Sometimes change makes you sit up and pay attention, opening your eyes to so many new things, it’s as if you’d been asleep for.”
Change transforms us into the person we aspire to be. Sometimes it opens our eyes to so many things that we never knew before. Most of the time, we require change in order to awaken and discover what it is that we are truly yearning for.
I promise that love isn’t easy for anyone. Anywhere”
Such a fact. Love is not always simple. It’s actually complicated. You’ll go through highs and lows, ups and downs. But it’s acceptable and usual. Because feeling love is preferable than not feeling it at all.
He’s not special. He’s extraordinary. To me. And I feel like I am, too, when I’m with him.”
I admired her affection for him. I’m at a loss for words to describe it since it is so unadulterated and real. But the reason I enjoy this quotation so much is that it shows how she conveyed her love for him.
This is why I found Puddle Jumping to be so enjoyable. This novel has absolutely captured my heart, and I really hope you will feel the same way.
