Memorizing You by Dan Skinner read and reviewed on November 22th, 2015

My number one read all time! I was devastated after finishing this, it was so beautiful!
After all these years I'm afraid to read it again... I just can't. It hit me deep in my heart! When I think about this book... my heart beats faster... No review can tell the real beauty of this story.

I think everybody must read this one and I mean everybody!!

Original Review:

My heart hurts and cries. What a beautifully written love (life) story this is. 
Excellent, mind-blowing, heartbreaking, overwhelming, vulnerable, very sensitive, honest, sad, liberating, struggling, deep feelings. It's all there.

An outstanding story from one POV that gives you a look deep inside a human’s life and the world around him. When he (David) meets the other half of his heart (Ryan) you see him grow and overcome his life. You see them grow for each other and there is a love so strong they can move mountains. 

But life would not be life without the ups and downs in it.

And that –for a fact- is the beauty of this story
