An absolute banger. What can I possibly say about this that hasn't already been said? This is everything a sequel should be and more. I've seen the movie of this book probably over 10 times because I was once on a cruise that played it on loop all day for a week. And you know what? That was iconic of them, really. Because while this book is literary perfection, the movie is cinematic perfection too. "If it weren't for... the baby 😏" ^ That's history right there. Another thin
We had gotten so much right. And too much wrong. The future was here, and it was a fucking mess. Attention! Attention, please! Did you like Andy Weir's Project Hail Mary? Did you love how deeply it explored its premise? Its hopeful yet conceivable outlook on the future? Were you addicted to the pure adrenaline each action scene brought you? Well, do I have the book for you. From the first page of this book, I was strapped in for what I knew would be one hell of a ride. It che
"I tried to be a better person for her—but it was to impress her, to get her to want me. But when I’m around you, I want to be better because… well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you’re like… like light made into flesh… You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine." ADRIAN???? This is THE Adrian??
I— I am in disbelief. Going into this, my friend told me it was bad. So I tempered my expectations. And still. I was not prepared. This installment was an absolute dumpster fire. It took everything that previously made the series fun and flipped it into something unrecognizable. The first two books are fun summer YA contemporary romances. This one is a dramatic NA college romance surrounding a WEDDING??? What. Even. Happened. Don't even get me started on what Jenny Han did to
This was messy and dumb but I still devoured it whole. Having read the last book in the series at this point, this is where I'm going to now pretend the series ends. Because that last one is a dumpster fire. But that review is coming later. Where I think Jenny Han excels is writing honest narratives about children. The flashbacks to childhood were definitely some of my favorite moments in this one—they were so honest and real and nostalgic. I also enjoyed this installment bec
'She's forgotten how to be happy,' I told him. But that felt wrong, too. The prose of this book is stunning. I'm still in awe of the fact that this is a debut, even if I'm four years late to the party. This is part of my project reading books that were on my 'anticipated releases list of 2018,' and I'm so glad I got to it! There was so much I loved about this book and one thing that was lukewarm (hence the 0.5 stars off). I was enthralled by the writing and plot of this story
