I recently came across this book and thought it would be a nice read. However, I did not expect this book to be such an emotional one!
What is it about?
A lost girl. A troubled boy. The road trip of a lifetime.
Hazel lands in America with nothing but a backpack, a craving for adventure, and a past she would rather forget. She is eager to live life as she always imagined it – free, wild, unpredictable.
When brilliant but aloof singer-songwriter Liam invites her to join his band as they tour all over the States, she doesn’t have to think twice. Suddenly she’s travelling, performing, and falling hard for this talented, complicated boy. But when things begin to spiral out of control, Hazel realises that no matter how hard she tries, she can’t outrun herself.
The Colours We See is an under-the-skin love story brimming with music, art, parties and heartbreak. How far can we go to escape ourselves before it’s too late to turn back?
What did I think of it?
TW: mention of suicide, substance abuse, toxic parentship, death
I did not expect this book to be this hell of an emotional ride when I first started reading it. This story really has my heart. All the characters have their own flaws and that was reflected beautifully into this story.
This is the first book that made me cry in quite a while.
It’s beautiful to see how the main character – Hazel – tries to pull herself together piece by piece. Near the end, you really see her development, which she deserves.
The friendship between all the band members is so magical. It warmed my heart. I got so invested in the lives of all the characters so quickly. My heart hurt for them several times.
A song I associated with this book is Wide Awake by Katy Perry.
Thank you to BookSirens and Kaisa Winter for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is no way affected my opinion.
