One of the most common themes in literature is "the right person, at the wrong time." It's a thing, and it's not going anywhere. It's a truth that we like to keep close to our heart: you can't always get what you want, even when it comes to love. We've all been there: you meet the right person, but you're not at the right time.
Maybe you're just too young and don't want to commit. Maybe they're just too old and have no interest in settling down. Maybe it's just not the right time for either of you—but that doesn't mean there won't be a next time!
There's nothing worse than finding a person who seems perfect for you—an amazing sense of humor, the same taste in music, similar goals and beliefs—and realizing that they're just not right for you at this time in your life. The good news is that there are so many books out there that explore this exact thing! Here are some of our favorites:
The Fault In Our Stars By John Green
The Fault in Our Stars is a book about Hazel and Augustus, two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group. Hazel is witty and sarcastic while Augustus is more confident and outgoing. Their relationship is not only based on their mutual interest in each other, but also on their love of books.
In this novel, we see them explore their feelings for each other as well as what it means to live life to its fullest even when you're dying young. This book will make you cry a lot because it's so sad but also so beautiful that it'll leave you wanting more from these characters after reading the last page.
The Sun is Also A Star By Nicola Yoon
The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon is one the best books we've ever read.
We would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a book that makes you cry, laugh and fall in love with the characters all at once. The story follows a girl named Natasha who meets a boy named Daniel on her way to being deported from America with her family.
They fall in love within one day as they try to figure out how to make their lives work together despite having no idea if they will ever see each other again. It's the story of two teens who meet at the wrong time in their lives, but maybe, just maybe, they can find a way to make it work. If you're looking for a story that will make you smile and cry at the same time, this book is perfect for you!
Me Before You By Jojo Moyes
We just finished reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and I'm still not over it. This book made us cry a lot, which is probably why it's so popular. It's about a girl who meets a guy at the wrong time in his life as he's paralyzed from the waist down. They fall in love and she helps him live his life to the fullest, even though he doesn't think he can do anything with his life anymore.
It was also one of those books where we got so invested in the characters that they felt like real people to me by the end of it. This book will make you cry—on public transport or wherever you are—but it will also inspire you to believe in love again.
A Love Letter To Whiskey By Kandi Steiner
We all know that life is all about timing. Sometimes things are meant to be, and sometimes they're not. But what if you meet the right person at the wrong time? What if you're perfectly happy with your life, but then something happens and you realize that maybe you were missing out on something better? What if, after years of searching for someone who could make you happy, it turns out that they've been right there in front of you this whole time?
That's exactly what happens in Kandi Steiner's A Letter To Whiskey. We don't know if it's the best book about meeting the right person at the wrong time because there's a lot, but we do know one thing for sure: it made us cry a lot. It's also a book about how our lives are full of moments where we have to make choices—and sometimes those choices mean saying goodbye to someone we love, or maybe not.
Looking For Alaska By John Green
It's hard to explain how much we love this book. It's a story about meeting the right person at the wrong time, a story about living life to its fullest and not taking anything for granted.
Looking for Alaska is a book about how your life can change in an instant, and how what you think is important changes over time. It's funny and sad, but also sweet and hopeful—it made us realize that life doesn't always go according to plan, but there's still hope for happiness if we stay open-hearted and honest with ourselves and each other.
