For the most part, I felt kind of "meh" about Here We Are Now. I liked the flashbacks to Taliah's parents' story more than the "what's happening now" story.

“Here We Are Now” gave me chills. The book left me with a melancholy feeling as even during the happier parts, there was an inevitable sad feel to it. I adore how the book tells the story of Taliah’s mother and Julian as well as her own. It feels like I am right there with Taliah or with her mother throughout the book. While other books may have a similar plotline to this one, “Here We Are Now” is realistic and skips all the cheesiness. The author, did an amazing job developing Taliah’s character as she opens up and learns to let others into her life. I thoroughly recommend this novel for those looking for a subtle, captivating read. Rating: 4.5/5

I was a little let down by this book. I don't know why but i honestly expected slightly more from this book. I mean it was alright. I enjoyed it well enough, but i just felt like there was something missing but I'm unsure what it is. I liked the idea, i think it was just the execution.
