Kathleen Glasgow’s novel, Girl in Pieces, is raw in the way it reveals an unfiltered range of thoughts. It’s as if all the worries readers have never dared to voice aloud, have come to life on the pages beneath our fingers and suddenly, we are forced to face the reality of our fears.
Glasgow reminds us of the value that comes from determination. She takes a story that is not often seen, and reveals it to the world boldly, and unashamed. This bravery has created representation for millions of people around the world - voices that deserve to be heard.
The Sun Is Also a Star is the perfect feel-good book. Nicola Yoon takes readers on a couple’s journey through love, loss, and heartbreak. She even includes mini-chapters to elaborate on interesting theories and themes throughout the book. Pick up this novel for a second and I promise you won’t want to put it back down.
The Spectacular Now is one of those strikingly rare stories that always disappoints you in the end. No matter who reads it or how many times it is read, the ending never fails to break your heart. Not because of a weak plot or poor writing, but because the lovably flawed protagonist can’t help but be who they are.
You know the type.
In 2017, reading became one of those hobbies I struggled to make time for. I could try to make excuses for this, but to be frank I can’t afford to keep up with my own demand. It also hurts that after you buy a book, it’s worth little to nothing on the market. Honestly, the economy’s rooting against readers.
Welcome to The Messy Life. Let's take a bubble tea trip.
Two weeks ago, I went to my friend's place for the weekend. Now, I love bubble tea, and a few friends told us about this shop near her apartment that was supposed to great. Not only was it nearby, but also everyone and I mean EVERYONE, had good things to say about it. So of course we decided we had to try it.
The name alone was enough to grab my attention: Novel Tea? It's the perfect play on words.
