What a wild and heart-pounding ride! This is one of those books I’ve heard so much about; it was so hyped that I was afraid I wouldn’t like it as I’ve been disappointed by a variety of hyped books. But I can say with a smile on my face that this book was fantastic!
Yay! I finally read this book! It’s been sitting on my shelf for a few months now, but because I am who I am, I listened to via audiobook from my local library’s Ovedrive app. Anywho, while I did enjoy this book, I didn’t like it as much as I thought it would. I mean, I’m still learning to like contemporary and while there were various aspects I did like in this book, there were definitely some hills I struggled to climb.
Wow, where do I even begin with a book like this? What a roller coaster of emotions! Of course, I read the synopsis, but I was not expecting something like this.
TRIGGER WARNING: Child abuse
I didn’t know what to expect going into this book. I was instantly intrigued by the synopsis, but it went on the back burner of my mind until… I came across it at the local library. You Bring the Distant Near blew me out of the water in the best way possible. A myriad of emotions rippled through me, and I found myself laughing and crying in various parts of the book. Now that’s a good book to me.
What a wild and fun ride! While I wanted to devour this book in one sitting, I wasn’t able to, but I don’t really mind. I enjoyed it and savored it. It’s incredibly unique and unlike anything I’ve read in a long while.
Elizabeth May, what have you done to me?! My emotions are TOYS in your hands. Gees, my heart! What a riveting, earth-shattering finale to The Falconer trilogy!
This was quite a hard topic. I had to Google a few lists to get an understanding of it and some of the books on the list. Anyway, I think I might have it figured out!

Oh my goodness, could this book be any cuter?! It’s adorable and poignant, too, with moments that broke my heart but put it back together again.
While I have Albertalli’s debut novel, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, on my shelf, I picked up The Upside of Unrequited at the local library on a whim. Now, I’m definitely going to try to make room to read Simon vs, especially since the movie is coming out next year (until the title Love, Simon).
I can’t remember if I’ve reviewed the first two volumes of this comic series on my blog… And shame on me! I picked up volumes 3 & 4 when I came across them at the library. I’ve seriously forgotten how fun and hilarious this series is!
Again, I’m reviewing the two volumes together like I did with Monstress. 🙂
