So today I’m doing something extremely different to what I normally post but here are two book reviews of Far from you by Tess Sharpe and All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
Okay so first I’ll talk about Far From You and here’s the Goodreads’ summary:
Sophie Winters nearly died. Twice.
The first time, she’s fourteen, and escapes a near-fatal car accident with scars, a bum leg, and an addiction to Oxy that’ll take years to kick.
The second time, she’s seventeen, and it’s no accident. Sophie and her best friend Mina are confronted by a masked man in the woods. Sophie survives, but Mina is not so lucky. When the cops deem Mina’s murder a drug deal gone wrong, casting partial blame on Sophie, no one will believe the truth: Sophie has been clean for months, and it was Mina who led her into the woods that night for a meeting shrouded in mystery.
After a forced stint in rehab, Sophie returns home to a chilly new reality. Mina’s brother won’t speak to her, her parents fear she’ll relapse, old friends have become enemies, and Sophie has to learn how to live without her other half. To make matters worse, no one is looking in the right places and Sophie must search for Mina’s murderer on her own. But with every step, Sophie comes closer to revealing all: about herself, about Mina and about the secret they shared.
I LOVED this book. It was a really emotional, raw story that also combined mystery and romance. Although the murder plot came together very slowly overall it had a great plot twist and the ending was really unpredictable!The book starts off with a confusing chain of events because Sophie’s life falls apart very quickly and everything is told in alternating chapters of before and after and this is just a must-read.
Now I’ll do a little review on All The Bright Places.
So again, here’s the Goodreads’ summary:
The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Park in this exhilarating and heart-wrenching love story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die.
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.
Again I LOVED THIS BOOK! It was so touching and emotional and the characters were quite relatable and I couldn’t put this book down.It’s such an honest book and I absolutely love it. Reading this book was like being on a roller coaster of emotions, you just have to read it to understand the amazingness.
There we go! Hope you enjoyed this *virtual hugs* ♥
Lots of love,
