9. Soulmates

This book is about soulmates, as the title says. We follow a young girl named Poppy, who is 17 years old. The story follows her everyday life, at least at the beginning. One day, when she sees a band perform in a nightclub, she meets a boy named Noah for the first time. Things go from there. It’s lovely how the two main characters fall in love and their relationship evolves.

But there’s the whole soulmate thing underneath, which they don’t know about, and they don’t know that any of the earth-shattering things have to do with their relationship. The whole book itself is the only book that has ever made me tear up. I love the little humor scenes with Poppy and her friends throughout the book. Also, towards the end, I loved the build-up, and there was a sudden change towards the end. If you have ever read this book, you understand how amazing it is.
