    One thought on “All the Little Moments”

    1. 'Ylva-Publishing ARC provided in exchange for a fair and honest review'Which is harder to come to terms with: having your life turn upside-down because of family tragedy,losing your girlfriend right after,family issues/drama,having to take responsibility of your brother's two young kids and also take ownership of his house,relocate to another town/city? Well G.Benson tackled all of these topics plus a slew of other plotline that was thought provoking at times,emotionally draining,heartwrenching, [...]

    2. I completely fell in love with the characters in this book. The main characters, Anna and Lane, the secondary characters, Sandra and Kym, and the children, Ella and Tobes. The story is different from most of the lesbian romances I've read and very, very well done. The author takes her time with the development of the relationships and I felt completely invested in every aspect of the book. I laughed and I cried. Dropped several tears in a few different places. I highly recommend this book and I [...]

    3. A beautiful, warm story of love, loss and family. I'm so looking forward to G. Benson's next book -- can't believe this is her debut novel.

    4. *I received this book from Ylva Publishing for an honest review*This is one of those difficult books to read. Oddly ‘unputdownable’, yet still angsty. Well, I say that because I do not normally find angst among the things I normally find with books I can’t stop reading. In my second book by this author that I’ve read, the main and only point of view character, Anna, opens the book in a car on the way to her parents place . . . cutting short a longish vacation with her long-term girlfrien [...]

    5. I thoroughly enjoyed All the Little Moments. This past week I rushed through jobs and chores to return to the lives of Anna, Lane, Kym, Sandra and two of the cutest additions to lesfic romance in recent years, six-year old Ella and toddler Toby.This gem is why I will always take a chance on debut authors. G. Benson has written a memorable love story. She takes her time building the relationship between Anna and Lane and this and a strong cast of supporting characters makes the book feel natural [...]

    6. Completely fell head over heels for this book. My heart ached for Anna, I developed a big old crush on Lane because she's wonderful, and I wanted to hug Kym. (view spoiler)[I hated Cathy and George and wanted terrible things to happen to them. I was also so stressed out by the custody thing, possibly because I know people who would do that. (hide spoiler)]This is going on my list of all time favourites and I will read it again and again. It's sad and funny and sexy and how it deals with family a [...]

    7. One of the sweetest, and at the same time most heartbreaking, and most romantic stories I've read in a long time. Damn, those two really love each other, don't they? Great chemistry. Great dialogues. Amazing characters. A delight to read, really. Couldn't put it down.

    8. I was starting to feel that I was one of the only people who didn't know about this book. 38, of my friends, have either read this or marked it to read. I thought to myself, I better check this book out. And boy, I'm so glad I did! It was wonderful. I would say it's one of the better romances I've read in a while but it was so much more than that. It was a story about overcoming tragedy, raising kids, and building a life. The romance was actually a less important part of the story when you look [...]

    9. I didn't like this one *As much* as her most recent one, although I still enjoyed it quite a bit. Is it weird that I thought their relationship was too perfect? They were great together, over-the-top understanding and they never had like any issues whatsoever. I get that the conflict was external with the death of the MC's brother and sister-in-law, forming a new family, stresses with family members, but I don't know I feel like Lane was made in a perfect girlfriend factory, which of course Anna [...]

    10. Lovely and emotional read about life, loss, love and acceptance. Lots of awesome characters. Though one of the leads was a tad too perfect. And things got a little too sappy at times, but it's well-balanced with some antsy as well as some angsty moments. Lesfic lovers will swoon over the well-developed romance, but the best parts, imho, are those that deal with the family relationships (Ella/Toby and Anna, Anna and her parents) and how everyone in the book dealt with loss so differently, in thei [...]

    11. I cried, not once, several times but some of them were happy tears ;) The storyline is awesome, you instantly fall in love with the characters. It's about all those little moments that take your breath away (life, love, death, hurt, loss, fun, ). It can be simple like someone falling asleep in your arms or saying just the right words, or just the way someone looks at you. it's not much but in those moment it's everything you need. It's all those little moments that make life a big adventure. Go [...]

    12. What an AMAZING debut novel. I LOVED it! The storyline was believable, the characters were delightful (with the exception of one) and the kids adorable. I found myself smiling on more than one occasion with some of the antics. Great book! ☺

    13. I thought the synopsis sounded familiar and this was confirmed in the first few pages when I realised I had originally read this story online. I did have some quibbles, but overall I found this to be an poignant look at the complexities of life, love and grief. The original story has been polished and changed (it was originally set in the US and now takes place in Australia). As an Aussie I picked up a few places where the Americanisms hadn't been changed. Also giving the main family a different [...]

    14. Ok so this book was a big surprise for me. A year or so ago I had picked up a sample of this book and read the first little bit but there was something that stopped me from continuing and thought this book was not for me. Anyways I recently read Benson’s Flinging It and really enjoyed it. When I realised that I had tried another book from this author but stopped I decided to give it a go again. Well I feel kinda silly because I can’t seem to properly remember why I didn’t like it the first [...]

    15. WOW!!Well it is my first book by this author and I readily admit it will not be my last. Excellent story and she was able to keep me hooked throughout. I could not put it down. The book evoked all emotions, some laugh out loud, some made my eyes water and some about the injustices in this world. Thank you. I really enjoyed this book .

    16. Contented sighAnna's brother and sister in law died leaving her to care for their two children. Anna had never wanted kids and in spite of the life she had in another city she moves back to step up, leaving her shallow girlfriend behind. Soon she will make true friends, a new girlfriend and start a new relationship with her mother, but through it all she makes it clear, the kids come first!I really loved this book. It was so sweet and romantic and mushy. it was just sooo good! I admired Anna's s [...]

    17. Single, young aunt who, all of a sudden, must learn to look after her brother/sister's children is an old, sweet and endearing theme.I have seen in cinema this nice Garry Marshall's movie , starring Kate Hudson, which displays contents very similar to those in this book.Also, for other aspects, this novel reminds me this Christmas season TV movie, with Carla Gugino, performing the aunt. If you liked this book, as I did, I suggest to see these movies too.Benson gives this novel a dramatic slant, [...]

    18. What a great story! I know it wrapped up and is the end, but I really want to know more about the characters and what happens to them in future years. Ella and Tobes need to grow up and cause more sweet moments, as well as stir up a little mischief in Anna and Lane's lives.

    19. Cute kids. Drama. Romance. Serious issues dealt with seriously. Tears, laughter, love. This was a wonderful read. I will be keeping it and re-reading from time-to-time.

    20. Wow!Emotional roller coaster of a book. First I had not heard of the author, made me a bit nervous, but glad I took the chance. Great book hope to read more from this author.

    21. After reading a very long string of books in a row that raced through their plots like a speeding train, this was a welcome change. This story had layers, and it unfurled those layers at a proper pace, with readable prose, believable, natural dialogue, and excellent character development. It was so nice to read. I'll definitely be picking up more by this author.

    22. I wanted to love this book. I really did. It seems like almost everyone loved it. And yetThe first 55% was good. The kids were adorable, especially little Toby, Kym was amazing, Anna with Lane had a great chemistry, etc. But it was kind of boring. I have to admit that I really was bored. (view spoiler)[Then the custody drama started and I found myself skipping pages just to get through it. I think it was absolutely unnecessary, throwing it there just to have some kind of drama. Just like the bre [...]

    23. Life interrupted, I had to read this book in segments. But I always found something touching in every segment I read.

    24. All the Little MomentsYlva always provide value for money with their books and All the Little Moments is no exception, at 365 pages or 132,000 words.Packed into those 365 pages is some of the best lesfic I have read in a while.While the story has The two main characters who share a slow burn to romance, there are really five characters which make the book such a treasure. They are all multi dimensional and well rounded characters who you will grow to love as much as I did. If I had to limit my r [...]

    25. Detailed score: 4.25I love it when someone finds a way to achieve a new twist on the lesrom genre and what a fresh voice All the Little Moments is.I had the option to request to receive an ARC of this book and chose not to because I usually find kids as key characters really unappealing. What a fool I was. Yes the kids are key characters and plot drivers but, because they were written in such a well rounded, realistic way (rather than the cutesy, everyone must want one, gives sage advise to the [...]

    26. Yes, we have a winner!I laughed with them and cried with them. This is one of those books you just can't put down. It's a touching story with real life issues. Some struggles Anna went through is just heartwrenching. I liked Kym and Anna's mother for their awesome friendship and support they lent to Anna. The emotions felt so real. Oh, and Lane, there's nothing not to like about this woman. But most of all, I loved Toby and Ella, they are so cute and adds a lot of heartwarming moments to the sto [...]

    27. This is a really nice romance with the addition of two ‘sweet’ young children. (perhaps a little too ‘cute’ at times). Very quickly I started to care about what happened to the main characters and I enjoyed the majority of the book, but I did have a couple of minor problems. The relationship between Anna and Lane started well but I thought it did drag a little. It felt like I was reading the same thing more than once.(view spoiler)[My other problem was as soon as Cathy appeared, the dire [...]

    28. One of my favorite lines from Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet states: "The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain." I thought of that line often while reading All the Little Moments, and it rang true from the first page to the last.There's pain here, deep grief, incredibly joy, and so much more. Every bit of it felt authentic. Ms. Benson understands people, and she has a rare gift for writing children in particular; Ella and Toby, despite their very young ages, were [...]
