NetGalley Review - Dear Thing

Dear Thing - Julie Cohen
If I’m completely honest, I chose this book because I fell in love with the front cover (clearly I have a thing for blankets and cuddly toys). When it came to reading it, I put it off for a few weeks, as I really wasn’t sure if it was for me. As I don’t have children, a part of me wondered how I would manage to connect with this book.

Dear Thing is a beautiful, emotional and intense read. At one point I couldn’t read the words through my own tears.

This book was almost impossible to put down. I was about half way through, when I decided to continue it first thing the following morning, with the intention of reading a few pages while I drunk my cup of tea in bed. My intended quick morning read, turned into me crawling out of bed two hours later, having finished the entire book.

I would like to thank the publisher, St. Martin’s Griffin (St. Martin’s Press) for allowing me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
