To Read or Not to Read: Read.
Poets, Artists, Lovers by Mira Tudor
4 / 5 Stars
I was contacted by Mira at The Art Dive to review her book for her and I was delighted to. Because I do love a good romance novel sometimes and I like novels about art and how it effects the characters lives. The story is a little One Day-esque as it flits between different times and maybe a little Love Actually-esque too as we meet a lot of people but they are all somehow linked to each others lives.
Read it if you like characters who love art, messy relationships and believable characters struggling to find their places in the world.
Why I liked it:
- I found the characters human, I could relate to their struggles. They want to do what they love – create art, but also have to make money 😦 (Adult problems!).
- They love art (Perhaps a simple point, but as I said I’m a sucker for arty related things) .
- Henriette was probably my favourite character in the entire novel. Maybe because that’s who we meet first and I always prefer the first character I meet but she also had this whimsicalness to her.
- I didn’t know how it was going to end. I guessed, as I always do, but I got it wrong so it was a nice change!
