I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder is a story told through verse. It is also the first book I have read that was written in verse. After reading it, I know that I will without a doubt be reading other books in verse such as: Crank by Ellen Hopkins, After the Kiss by Tera Allan McVoy, along with You are Not Here by Samantha Schutz.
I finished this book within an hour or two, so if you’re looking for a quick read to finish a challenge, etc, this is definitely a good choice. Since it only took my a short while to read this book, I don’t have that much to say about it, but I will still share whatever thoughts I had about it with you. Ava Bender could definitely be relatable to most because of her loss. Almost everyone has lost someone they love, or will eventually have it happen to them. Lisa Scroedor did a great job at creating a character that the average person can connect to. Ava’s experiences tugged at your heart strings. She went through many stages of grief, just like we do. Ava also went through many times where she was having mixed feelings, which was also an extremely relatable quality. Jackson’s character seemed a bit needy and clingy towards Ava in the beginning, but the end of the novel does show a different point of view.
I heart you, you haunt me is a touching novel about loss and letting go. It is a beautifully written quick read by Lisa Schroeder. If you are looking for an emotional or quick read, make sure to pick it up!
