The Friday reading tips this week is the stunningly brilliant The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This book is so, so important, a real eye-opener. It addresses the difficult, complex topic of systematic racism in a way that grips you and makes you understand by feeling, rather than being told, how this undergirds the everyday life.
The reading tips this week is the brilliantly addictive Warcross by Marie Lu. I love Marie Lu’s Legend Trilogy so much and have had Warcross on my TBR list forever now. I was a bit scared though that I would be disappointed, having too high expectations, but boy I sure was not! I loved this book just as much - if not more - than the Legend series!
I’m so happy, I’ve found a new favorite book and favorite author, Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I love this book! It kept me up all night, I just couldn’t put it down. I love the way Rainbow Rowell keeps you in suspense. This is the complete opposite of insta love, you have to wait almost the whole book to find out if the two main characters love each other or hate each other, if they will end up together or if they will kill each other first. So good! And so mean to the reader, it makes the story completely addictive and deprives you of sleep... I love Rainbow Rowell’s writing style with all the different POVs and the fast pace and the way she entrangles the background story. And the world building and the plot and the characters. Alright, let’s face it, I love everything about this book!
This Friday reading tips is my favorite dystopian of all times, the Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu. It’s also my favorite Marie Lu series (I have yet to read Warcross though). What looks like a standard dystopian format at first glance is turned into something utterly fantastic. The character-driven story told from two perspectives, the commanding narrative and all the emotions, smart thoughts and creative world building makes this series completely unique.
This week’s tips for a great weekend-read is the beautiful, gripping, sad and at the same time hopeful, book They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera. This is a heartbreaking book in the best possible way. It’s one of those books that will stay with you and make you think about your own choices and the way you live your own life.
