This week’s reading tips is a book that I urge you to read: the breathtakingly amazing If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo. This book is such an important, eye-opener that it should be among required reading in school. But it’s also an amazing, powerful, heart-wrenching and beautiful story that deserves to be read on its own merits. This is a story that will stay with me forever. I loved this book to pieces and I recommend it with all my heart!
I was on vacation last week and read a lot of books then. Amongst others, Life and Death by Stephenie Meyers.
I bought this book at the airport and read it during the flight. A very fast read! This book is a ten years anniversary edition of Twilight where Bella and Edward are replaced by Beau and Edyth instead.
I’m really not sure what I think about the book to be honest. I liked the idea of a gender swap and a retake of the story, but reading it, it felt a little bit... boring. Like re-reading Twilight without that much difference. I didn’t feel that the gender swap added anything really new to the story. I can’t help thinking that it would have been so much more interesting and refreshing if it had been turned into a LGBT story instead, like between Beau and Edward, or between Bella and Edyth. What I really loved about the book was the foreword and afterword, you could really feel how much fun Stephenie had when writing it!
