Review: Sincerely Carter by Whitney Gracia Williams

Tuesday, May 5, 2015


Just friends.
We’re just friends.
No, really. She’s just my best friend... 
Arizona Turner has been my best friend since fourth grade, even when we “hated” each other. We’ve been there for one another through first kisses, first “times,” and we’ve been each other’s constant when good relationships turned bad. (We even went to colleges that were minutes away from each other…)
Throughout the years, and despite what anyone says, we’ve never crossed the line.
Never thought about it.
Never wanted to.
Until one night changed everything.
At least, it should’ve ...
Just friends.
We’re just friends.
I’m only saying this until I figure out if she’s still “just” my best friend…

My Review
This book was so fun to read, honestly. The characters were funny, sarcastic and sweet. Carter was exactly what I expected him to be. The womanizer best friend who was to blind to see what was in front of him. However, I expected him to take a lot longer to realize how much he truly cared for his best friend. I mean, they did everything together from such a young age that they felt like one another had to be a part of their life in order for everything to feel right. I understand how knowing someone for so long can sometimes lead to you feeling like that person is more like a sibling than a romantic interest in your life. Then again, it was instantly noticeable that this wasn't the case for Carter & Arizona to everyone who knew them. Actually, even to everyone who didn't know them. Everybody knew there was something much more than friendship there.

I loved how the book had flashbacks to when they were younger because it helped me understand certain other parts within the story. I also loved their cute letters to one another. The letters began when they were in fourth grade and had to write an apology note to each other for getting in trouble in class. Needless to say there wasn't much of an apology in the letters.They teased each other endlessly but we all know what that meant in fourth grade. *wink* They have so many stories and memories together, I kept waiting for the moment of truth and I was so happy when they FINALLY realized their love for one another. It was perfect and sweet and pretty much everything I was looking forward to. I could go on and on about reasons why I love this book but I will just leave it at this: I loved their letters, I loved their unbreakable friendship and loyalty to one another and I really, really loved them two together.

Sincerely (in love with this book), J.
