The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith

Warning: Might have some spoilers. ✌

I loved the plot of this novel and loved how this book showed that distance can’t separate two hearts that really care. πŸ™‚

By reading this book, I could also imagine that I’m traveling with the two main characters, Owen and Lucy. It’s actually what I wanted to do, to travel. I’m a wanderlust but as of now I would only get to explore Manila and the nearby places/provinces because of lack of budget. 😜 I hope I could travel farther when I graduate.

Just like Owen and Lucy, I had also lived at different places and I know how hard it is to start over again especially at school. New environment and new people to talk to. One thing I loved about it, though, is that I gained friends everywhere we lived and I’m happy that I still have communications with mostly of them.

Of all the chapters, my two favorites are Chapters 33 & 34. Hihi. 😁 you’ll know why if you’ll read the book. I loved the ending that they _________ but after reading it you’d wish that you had the book’s sequel. So, yeah, I wish there would be a sequel.

Owen and Lucy had sent postcards to each other that it made me want to try it, too. I haven’t done that in my whole life! Good thing, though, I have this friend who’s at Belgium and I’m happy that he agreed that I’ll send him a postcard. πŸ˜€

I’m glad that he’s willing to send one to me, too! As we were chatting earlier, I was already excited to receive it and to send his way. Haha. After our class, together with Alona, we went to a bookstore to buy postcards and a card to send to my friend who’s at Belgium. I’m so thrilled with this idea. 😄😄

The parents of Owen and Lucy were very supportive about the plan the two had and I was just like, Wow! I bet my mother won’t let me fly across the ocean just to see someone I hardly knew. 😜

Quotes from the book:
1. β€œThere’s a difference between loneliness and solitude.”
2. “There was no point in waiting for someone who hadn’t asked, and there was no point in wishing for something that would never happen.”
3. β€œYou can’t know the answer until you ask the question.”
4. “the most basic sort of love: to be worried about the one who was worrying about you.”

There you go, my thoughts about the book. Sorry if I revealed too much, I just can’t help it. ✌ I hope you would still give this book a try, you’ll love it, too. ❀ Wishing for a sequel!
