    After reading this I decided that I was going to share my own personal story of abuse.I'd like to put a warning before you continue on with this review, because I don't want to ruin anyone's mood. This novel is an accurate depiction of someone's mind while suffering from abuse. Because you do think it's your fault, because you could do better, you can be enough.Because if you're not enough, you're alone.You're alone and you're not allowed to talk about.And sometimes, it's not because no one will [...]

    I'm not sure if But I Love Him would have touched me as much if the subject matter wasn't something that has affected someone close to me throughout their life, and therefore, had a huge effect on myself. I'm not going to publicly post details but a person who was very important to me went through a similar ordeal with domestic abuse with even more violent conclusions. I saw first-hand how someone could be so wrapped up in a relationship that they didn't see how much it was harming them. There w [...]

    I love the concept of this book. It is the story of one girl and the boy she loves who abuses her ~ told in reverse chronological order. As the book begins, Ann is at the height of the abuse, has completely sold out of her previous life to be with Connor, and the relationship has consumed her. As the book continues, it slides back through time, showing the relationship in reverse. (with the exception of the climax/resolution, which is sprinkled through the reverse narrative and saved up for the [...]

    Intense. Scary. Heartbreaking. Unlike other book about abusive relationships that I've read, But I Love Him is told in reverse order. When the book begins we seen Anna at her worst possible low, and as the story progresses or rather regresses we witness how Anna comes to be in this place.It was brilliant on Amanda's part to tell the story this way, often times it easy to think, why didn't they just walk away, why didn't they move on. it seems easy until you're there yourself. You see Anna strugg [...]

    Rating: 4.5 starsFavourite Quote: It's nearly dark. How long have I been lying here? The blackness reaches the corners of the room and fills everything. Once that darkness was cocoon, enveloping us and protecting us from everything outside the door. Together, we hid in the dark, hoping the world would leave well enough alone and we could find peace.But nothing can protect me now, least of all the darkness.But I Love Him is a completely absorbing tale. When I picked it up I only intended to have [...]

    "But even when I stop crying, even when we fall asleep and I'm nestled in his arms, this will leave another scar. No one will see it. No one will know. But it will be there. And eventually all of the scars will have scars, and that's all I'll be--one big scar of a love gone wrong." — Amanda Grace (But I Love Him)After reading "Bitter End" last weekend, I recieved this in the mail and decided to go for it. It was much better than "Bitter End".The writing in this was amazing. It was just so beau [...]

    But even when I stop crying, even when we fall asleep and I'm nestled in his arms, this will leave another scar. No one will see it. No one will know. But it will be there. And eventually all of the scars will have scars, and that's all I'll be--one big scar of a love gone wrong.I really wanted to love this book. The subject matter is important to me and is something that has deeply impacted my own life. I think this book accomplished the most important thing it could: exploring the how/why of h [...]

    But I Love Him by Amanda Grace is one big gimmick that doesn’t work because of poor writing and bad execution. Amanda tried to do something very creative with the storyline by writing it in reverse chronological order. The story begins at the end, over the course of a year for Ann and her abusive relationship with her boyfriend Conner. Ann has been beaten and bloodied and left with a broken wrist by Conner. We then go back over months and the days to the beginning of when Ann first met her unb [...]

    I'm trying not to judge them her. I'm trying my best not to be disappointed in her choices. And with BUT I LOVE HIM beginning as it did~ at their end, I did have to hold onto my judgments thoughts, and see what led them to where they were.But having witnessed this reverse mix of start, end, and in between, I'm still not a hundred percent sure about what to think BUT I do know what I feel: pissed off, unsure about my disappointed then finally, relieved.Pissed off at whom though? Because if we're [...]

    Amanda Grace is a literary GENIUS. The structure of But I Love him is written backwards. Yep, backwards. Completely. You get the ending first and then you go all the way up to the first day and to me, that is spectacular. I liked it because if you start at the beginning, you almost always know how it's going to end. So, what better way to start at the end and see how it all began? "It happened in pieces, tiny little turning points. I'll never figure out when it all turned, because it wasn't a si [...]

    At times I wasn't sure of the dates and of where the story was going. But then the more I read the more I got that it was going backwards, between past and present. I kind of like that actually. Made the book an interesting read. A sad emotional interesting read. The writing I think I liked the most and well that the cover has to do with the story. The kind of writing that makes you want to read the next chapter and wonder what will happen to the characters.This took a little longer than I thoug [...]

    I felt the book read more like a diary than an actual novel. She was telling her story and thats pretty much it. The story in general is one we hear all too often both personally and in the media, and I will admit I could relate to a few situations myself. But I couldn't get passed the excuses she kept making for her boyfriends actions. It was a little too annoying for me, and I just plain didn't enjoy reading it. This book gets two stars from me, quick somewhat emotional read, but really lackin [...]

    Book 19 for 2011. This is a hugely intense book I was unable to put down. The author chooses to tell the story backwards, and at first this threw me. Yet, when I reached the end, I was sold on the fact that to convey the message, this was exactly the right way to tell the story. Highly recommended for girls seventh grade and up, fans of realistic fiction or not.

    Startling, exceptional, and fast-paced, Amanda Grace’s But I Love Him offers a fascinating new look into the world of abusive relationships.Prior to meeting Connor, Ann was a girl going places. From a track star, to a loyal friend, to a good student, Ann appeared to be the picture perfect girl. However, everything changes the day Connor walks into her life. Connor is a boy with a bad family history, but all Ann can see is a boy who needs someone, a boy who can be loved even if he does not real [...]

    Whew! What a whirlwind of heartbreak this story was! I had my eye on this book for a while now and finally decided to purchase it. It actually arrived yesterday and I was determined to finish it before slumbering last night. This was an easy task since the book held my attention until the very end.Gosh, as I sit here to write this review, I still cannot wrap my head around it. I have so many emotions and thoughts running through my head, so please just bear with me.The book starts off in the pre [...]

    Wow. I usually try to write my review within 24 hours of reading a book. With this one, I had to wait. It was just impossible for me to do it immediately after reading the book because I was just speechless. I wouldn't have been able to articulate my thoughts on this one at all, as it got to me on so many levels.First, I'm sure you can see from the opening sentence of the summary that this story is about abuse in a relationship. I actually didn't realize that when I picked it up. This was one o [...]

    I admit I was a little scared to read But I Love Him. Yes, scared. It just seemed so… intense. And it was, but that didn’t make me love it any less. This book was fantastic, beautiful, and heartbreakingly brilliant.The story is told in a very unique way, starting at the end and going backwards, showing readers how Ann’s life spiraled out of control. I thought this gave this book something very different, and it helped me to not judge Ann for her decisions, as I didn’t know the reasoning [...]

    That was intense. O_O From the description and starting to read it, or hearing about it, you know it's intense, but until you've read the whole thing, I don't think you'll understand how intense it is.Amanda Grace chose to write this story in reverse chronological order. I see it as two parts, because there's a few chapters (five?) that are told in one day, and the rest are from when Connor went too far to when Ann met Connor.And now I want to read it backwards. The reverse chronological order w [...]

    First of all, I have to emphasise how beautifuly written this story was. My copy of this book is full of underlined sentences and parts, and with notes in margins.Although it is a sad story I really enjoyed reading every single word of it and after finishing that last page I wished there were more of it. But good novel doesn't have to be long, and "But I Love Him" proves that.Written in reversed chronological order of events, it stends up from other novels with abusive thematic.It starts while t [...]

    Find Full Review at readingangel/2011/07/bBut I Love Him was a beautiful, dark tale of heartbreak. I knew going into this book that it was about an abusive relationship. This book was surprising though, in that it was wrote in such an original way. But I Love Him was written backwards, starting from the most dramatic, blow-out point (1 year) in the relationship, and then going backwards. In that way you are trying to find that point in the relationship where it turned, the point that you just wa [...]

    This review can also be found here on my blog, PaperFantasiesAny avid or long-time follower of my blog or reviews knows how I feel about abusive relationships, and how YA has gotten into the habit of glorifying them. So many popular books play on the “He’s just misunderstood” idea and twist very real signs of danger into a bad-boy angle that is supposed to entice when it should warn away. But I Love Him is chock full of some of these very signs, but unlike so many in the genre, this novel [...]

    This book is a strong, interesting, disturbing story. It begins at the one year mark of the relationship between Ann and Connor, 17 and 18 years old, respectively. From there the story rewinds showing us the progression of their romance. Connor and Ann are teens who come from very different backgrounds but make an instant connection when they meet. Ann is a senior in high school, captain of the track team and working towards college. Connor is a smart young man who dropped out of high school, go [...]

    But I Love Him tells a story from a very unique perspective. The story begins in current day, where Ann is at the breaking point of her relationship. It shows how broken she has become due to her relationship with her boyfriend Conner. As the chapters continue, it takes us backwards through their relationship over the past year. It is fascinating to watch Ann in this way because we can see what slowly broke her down. We get to see who she was, whole, at the beginning of her relationship, present [...]

I read this book very fast and I got into it, like for real, at the middle of it. I feel like I understood so much more why she hadn't left him before b [...]
