The Name On Your Wrist

It’s the first thing they teach you when you start school But they don’t need to; your parents tell you when you’re first learning how to say your name It’s drummed into you whilst you’re taking your first stumbling steps It’s your lullaby From the moment it first appears you don’t tell anyone the name on you. Imagine that your soul mate your carpinomen knew who you were and vice versa Helen Hiorns has created a world were this is possible each person has a name on their wrist of their soul mate it is only known to them and remains covered at all times Corin is the protagonist in The Name on Your Wrist as far as everyone is concerned her carpinomen is Thomas or a variation of the name Colton is a fellow pupil that attends some of Corin s classes I didn t initially like him putting him in the group of jocks or self obsessed people but when he helps Corin I did begin to change my mind about him but the he is in Corin s life the I saw a different side to him and I uickly began to warm towards himCorin doesn t have an easy life her sister Jacinta isn t exactly stable and is constantly being rushed into hospital because of this they don t move her up in school which then affects Corin who is unable to move up and be a higher level than her older sister Her Mum also packed up their home after her Father s death and move the three of them to a different house Both of these incidents are something that Corin hasn t fully recovered from or forgivenThe first thing that drew me in about The Name on Your Wrist was the idea behind having someone s name on your wrist knowing that there is someone out there for you someone destined to be with you but that also comes with conseuences if you date a few people knowing they aren t your carpinomen then you look bad to others and will be looked down upon The Name on Your Wrist was an intriguing book that constantly kept me on my toes just when I thought I had figured Corin out something else is thrown into the situation that had me rethinking my ideas When I got towards the final pages of the book I was shocked shocked by the name on her wrist shocked by the name on his wrist and shocked by the name on Jacinta s wrist When Jacinta s story is actually explained my heart broke for her she tried to be there for Corin in her own way that just didn t work for Corin She wanted to protect her from what she went through but she just went the wrong way about it and then Corin ended up being mixed up in it The ending of The Name on Your Wrist has me wanting and I hope there will be a seuel at some point to see what comes from these revelations

R wristIn Corin's world your carpinomen the name of your soul mate marked indelibly on your wrist from the age of two or three is everything It's your most preciously guarded secret; a piece of knowledge that can give another person ultimate power over you People spend years even decades searching for the one they're suppo. Trigger warnings suicide self harm mental health car accident death of a parent Look I m not going to lie I picked this one up solely because it s basically a soulmate fan fic And I m trash for a good soulmate fic However this turned out to be dystopian story than anything Basically at some point in childhood a name is tattooed on your wrist It s taboo to show the name to anyone but it s common knowledge that it s the name of your soulmate Once you re of age you can start looking for your soulmate Corin is incredibly cynical about all of this She s dated a string of boys simply because it s frowned upon to do so She spends hours cultivating relationships online just to get hold of forbidden books and movies And she has very little motivation in life I liked the last 20ish pages than I liked the other 250 pages of the book The ending was surprising and gave a whole new level of depth to the world The rest of the story however waskind of disjointed There s insufficient worldbuilding There are plenty of holes in the story as well as some moderately icky stuff about how it s totally acceptable for LGBTIA people to acknowledge that they re LGBTIA and have a platonic soulmate relationship with a member of the opposite sex but it s hella taboo to have a sexual soulmate relationship with someone of the same sex Which WTF So yeah The ending was pretty surprising The rest of it wastoo romance heavy and occasionally dull So basically it s a 25 star book with a bonus half star for the ending

    I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis was a good read but had a few plot holes and lacked explanationsKeeping the name on your wrist to yourself is the biggest secret you will haveThis is why i found it difficult to understand why you'd get branded with a name at the age of threeSurely if it's meant to be top secret you wouldn't get your name until you're old enough to fully understand how big of a deal it
