Ghost of a Feeling by Celestine Trinidad
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is for anyone who finds themselves lost right now, that are hurt, afraid, or confused about anything in their life. Ghost of a Feeling filled me up with a lot of hope and I think everyone should read it.

"I'm just so tired of it all. I'm not as strong as everyone needs me to be. I'm not okay. But I can't not be okay. It's stupid and weak. I hate myself for being so weak."

Let me tell you about my girl, Cris. She's such a relatable character, despite me not being in the field of medicine like herself, because she's hit rock bottom and is dealing with depression. The representation in this book through her character is phenomenal - I felt her pain because it was so alike to what I've felt. It was both beautiful and heartbreaking to read at times, but comforting at the same time. She's so empty but. . . she gets through it.

"You can be sad. You can cry. And it is perfectly all right."

And NATHAN! *swoons* - He is just as amazing as Cris. For me, he represented a different side of depression. How it never truly goes away and I just loved it because again, RELATABLE. The romance is sweet and I loved everything about it, especially the ending!! But I won't spoil all that for you! ;)

I can't express in enough words how much I enjoyed this book and loved it.
It'll always have a special place in my heart, and I hope everyone ventures into reading Ghost of a Feeling - to find hope and feel the feels. There are relatable characters, great friendships, swoony romance, and such a beautiful story. Tears might be shed. <3
