ARC Review: Hurricane Summer by Asha Bromfield

Hurricane Summer by Asha Bromfield

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The writing in this book is really phenomenal. Just look at that cover! that’s how gorgeous it is. I was instantly drawn in, and I could have sworn I was actually in Jamaica from the description alone. It was that real. However, I can tell that this book is going to have a lot of pain, and after reading some other reviews, I know that my mental state can’t take this book right now. It would send me spiraling and I can’t, even though it’s utterly gorgeous. So it’s going on the ‘maybe later when emotionally ready to be destroyed’ shelf.

I would recommend it to everyone with the caveat that the writing is so real and immersive that what I gather is a lot of sexual harrassment (possibly even sexual assault?) would be absolutely devastating to anyone who has experienced it and is feeling emotionally fragile.

*Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing an e-arc for review.
