Why I Read It
Because Kandi Steiner has been on fire lately with her books…and she is super awesome.
What I Rated It
What It’s About
It’s crazy how fast the buzz comes back after you’ve been sober for so long.
Whiskey stood there, on my doorstep, just like he had one year before. Except this time, there was no rain, no anger, no wedding invitation — it was just us.
It was just him — the old friend, the easy smile, the twisted solace wrapped in a glittering bottle.
It was just me — the alcoholic, pretending like I didn’t want to taste him, realizing too quickly that months of being clean didn’t make me crave him any less.
But we can’t start here.
No, to tell this story right, we need to go back.
Back to the beginning.
Back to the very first drop.
This is my love letter to Whiskey. I only hope he reads it.
Never have I ever read a book that has made me teeter on the thin line of love and hate so many times. A Love Letter to Whiskey is a book that makes you feel as if you are suffocating from the angst and will drive you to the point of your last breath until you get that one spot of sunshine, that one breath of air that saves you until five minutes later you want to throw your kindle, AGAIN. HARD. Against the wall. This is a book I think people will love or hate. This book glorifies the phenomenon that sometimes the right person doesn’t come at the right time.
Now on to whiskey. The concept of having whiskey be a theme throughout the book is genius. I absolutely loved it. It took this book to a whole new level. Because often times, love is like alcohol, it can be an addiction.
I don’t want to say much about the characters as I feel that writing about them could really spoil the book. Just know this, there is no greater love that I have read than the ones between these two characters. I have never read about a couple with so much perseverance than these two.
