Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List: Review

This book really had me. It got into all of my emotions, especially anger. There were times where I wanted to kill Ely…a lot…with a very blunt weapon in a very angry way. My own opinion changed a lot throughout the book, but until it started getting close to the end, I hated Ely with a passion.

The book is mainly about this huge fight between Naomi and Ely. Naomi is deeply in love with Ely, but there’s one problem with that…He’s gay and doesn’t love his best friend the way she loves him. It’s a story that really draws you in and you feel very strongly for each character. It’s impossible to not want the best for them all…even if you think a certain one should be killed in horrible ways.

Love, friendship, betrayal, and trust are all huge topics in this story. It goes between a large set of characters, which is something that I’ve never seen. It’s very interesting though. To see how each character takes things in during their chapter(s) is something that more authors should do. Either way though, it’s a great story that really makes you think on things and each character has a strong role at one point or another. It’s definitely worth a read for anyone who hasn’t do so already.

Next on the list is David and Rachel’s first book together, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. I’ll get back the day I finish it.


Your Smile

When I think about beauty, I tend to miss the point. I look for treats that aren’t truly physical. I compliment your laugh, your heart, the way you giggle, yet I still feel like I’m making things difficult. As I try to write to explain your looks, I stop to think and wonder. Is this true, is this real, or is it another thing to blunder.

At a moment’s notice, I think of you, and it all comes rushing in. If I say it aloud, I’m almost guaranteed to end up cuddling. I don’t need to worry about things that don’t truly matter anymore. For when the time comes, I’m right there, standing in your door.

You’ll come to me, and hold me close, not wanting for us to part. I’ll look down to you, kiss your cheek, and tell you that it’s just the start. You’ll look over to see the fact that I walked mile after mile. I’ll just simply shrug and hold you close before I tell you that it was worth your smile.

A poem about long distance relationships and the beauty that some people work dream about seeing.

It’s Nice To Know

It’s nice to know that when everything else hurts, your love will bring me joy, that when I have nothing else to give, my love is enough, that even when it all hurts, you’ll be there to help me smile.

It’s nice to know you don’t expect anything from me, but you accept all that I have to give. You don’t hold my faults against me. All you do is let me hold you, even when we can hardly stand.

It’s nice to know that you love me and all the odd things that I do. You don’t make me dress a certain way. You don’t expect perfection when the rest of the world demands it.

It’s nice to know that your love is exactly what I need to be happy. It’s a thing of beauty that can’t be explained, yet I can’t get enough of it.

It’s nice to know that I can just love you and not have to impress you. Thank you for this love.
