- Goodreads Synopsis -
Jude and Nina are the epitome of that whole raw, unflinching love thing that most people are jealous of. That is, until Jude dies and wakes up in The Waiting Room, surrounded by other souls who are all waiting to pass over into their next life. But unlike those souls, Jude’s name is never called by the mysterious “receptionist”. He waits, watching Nina out of giant windows. He’s waiting for her. What is this place? How long will he wait? And what will happen when and if Nina does join him? The Waiting Room is a story of not just love, but of faith, predestination, and philosophy, friendship and self-actualization, of waiting.
The Waiting Room by Alysha Kaye was an extremely cute little story! I can honestly say that I have never read anything like this.
"Have I ever told you that I love you more than all the eyelashes in the world?" She was so random sometimes.
Alysha introduces us to a couple, Jude and Nina. Jude and Nina have always had a deal about dying. The two of them have always wanted to die at the EXACT SAME TIME. At first thought, we are all kind of thinking about how impossible that is.. right? But is it really that impossible? Jude ends up dying before Nina and he is shocked to find himself in the waiting room. People come and go constantly in the waiting room, so why is Jude still there? Why hasn't Jude's name been called to move on to his next life? Jude has been in the waiting room for 52 years now! Everything changes the day that Nina dies and is found face to face with Jude in the waiting room. This is when their lives really truly begin! The moment Jude's name is finally called, isn't a sad moment at all. Jude's name was called along side Nina's! What does this mean for the couple? Is Jude finally leaving the waiting room? Will Jude and Nina be separated? Will they even remember one another?
"It was the love I'd always read about in books but never believed in."
I absolutely adored this book! It was a quick little happy read and I could not put it down. Each life Jude and Nina live is absolutely perfect! Alysha Kaye definitely knew what she was doing when she began writing this story. I do not think Jude and Nina's story could have been written any better. The book was well written and for how many lives the characters lived, the book was extremely well organized. This book really surprised me and I am so happy that I was given the chance to read it. I truly do look forward to reading more by this author in the future. You guys definitely need to add The Waiting Room to your TBR list! Do it right now!
