My Thoughts…

I Let You Go is a book that I finished and I had to wait to write my thoughts on it.     I only had to wait because I was so invested in the characters, the storyline, and the outcome.     I put the book down only to have to pick it up again and start reading as soon as possible.   

I enjoy learning about Jenna.   I felt fear from the life Jenna was running from before I even knew what she was running from.     I felt sorry for Jacob’s mother as she comes to terms with the loss of her son.   The excitement I felt for what could be Jenna’s future was my favorite part, at the least the good part of her future.   

The story of this book was crazy.   I would definitely call this a thriller.   It was emotional, heart wrenching, beautiful coming into yourself story.     There is romance, secrets, heartbreak, and so much more.      The twists and turns kept me on my toes always having to think about what was coming next.   The characters were real and wonderfully developed.    

I recommend picking up this book as soon as you can.    This psychological thriller will not disappoint any reader.
