Everything, Everything

Wow.

I am really impressed with this novel. I was hesitant to pick up this novel. I was worried that it wouldn’t live up to all the hype. I’ve been hearing about this book EVERYWHERE for the past couple months. So when I picked up the book, I tried to shut all those thoughts away, and just absorb what the words gave me.

Those words gave me a lot more than I expected.

Ruthless

Exquisite. Absolutely exquisite. The YA genre lacks great thrillers. Sure, I’ve read some good ones, but most aren’t exclusively thrillers. Usually, they have sci-fi elements and occasionally they have fantasy woven in. Still, even if you classify those novels as ‘thriller’ and then weighed those books against other genres, it’d still be the smallest genre of YA fiction. This novel is pure thriller, and it has one of the best qualities I’ve ever seen.

Happy Birthday Calvin(s) & Hobbe(s)!

Tiger Snoozing

Synopsis

“In this latest novel from National Book Award finalist Martine Leavitt, a schizophrenic teen believes that Bill Watterson can save him from his illness if he creates one more Calvin & Hobbes comic strip.

A Madness So Discreet

Color me impressed. This book has a tortured soul to it, and it was exquisite. I’ve never seen a book tackle so many dark topics at once (at least not successfully.) This was my first book of Mindy’s, but it certainly won’t be my last.
