I get a lot of reading done on long journeys - very glad I don't get car-sick!
Wish I was still relaxing with my book instead of at work!
Finished this one today. It was good but hard to discuss without massive spoilers. Unique and hopeful though.
In trying to consume more queer media in June, I do kind of wish there was a place listing all queer media and whether or not the characters survive. So many focus on the tragic queer narrative and I can‘t help but wonder how we‘re meant to envision our futures, to say nothing of the rest of the world.

John Green‘s review of this book states, “Just read it,” and I could not agree more. AMAZING read. One of my favorite YA books ever. Should be way more popular. So glad one of my students told me to read it. #teachersoflitsy #yaliterature #yalit #literature
I may not be able to take an appropriately aligned book photo, but I‘d like to think that doesn‘t translate to my gallery wall. If anyone has a level I can borrow to check the alignments of these, hit me up 😂 #12daysofbookstagram — more than books
Hey guys, It‘s been a bit 😞😢in my life lately.. but I‘m back with another post, as life goes on. More Than This by Patrick Ness is such a great book! It you guys dig the matrix, you‘ll love it. It‘s got super sci fi/dystopia feels, full of incredible well rounded characters. Has anyone here read it? What did you think?

More Than This by Patrick Ness is easily of my favorite books of all time! With every page, you uncover- or begin, for that matter- a new mystery. You fall in love with (most) of the characters and are at least extremely passionate about the others. You really learn to adore all their flaws. This is a really thoughtful “what-if” book, and offers you a chance to really think about the events taking place. My only complaint is that it isn‘t endless.
Thanks to Litsy, my book cases are overflowing, and I get the best recommendations on books. I've read far outside my usual since I joined, and I love it. Thanks everyone. #thenicestplaceontheinternet #1000reasons Congrats on 1000 followers @BookishTrish

is it a good or bad to end a book with questions?!?
i loved this book until the end. what happens next? will seth, and tomasz, and regine be Okay?
how does the information they gained change the world (all versions of reality)?
help! i need answers or at least an epilogue because a sequel would be too much to handle emotionally.
I've had a run of average books this week but this week and truly broke the disappointing streak. A fast, pacy, clever, funny, heartbreaking, tender, thought-provoking, uplifting YA blockbuster. All the adjectives. Nearly 500 pages just flew by but the story will linger. Image by cover designer Matt Roeser
More Than This by Patrick Ness: 3.5/5⭐️. Okay to begin with it was not exactly bad. It had so many OMG moments. . But also, the ending, to me, was disappointing. Like the plot was intense intense intense and then it just falls flat. Like.why. So, if you're into some kind of horror sci-fi + existential philosophy, this book might be a 4 or a 5 for you. My soul felt drenched reading this, I became emotional and stuff lol. It really messed me up smh.

I had no idea what to expect from this book. As always Patrick Ness delivers a totally unique and great story. I loved the characters, especially Tomasz. I don't like getting answers to things, which is basically how this ended, but that seemed to be the point. Overall, this was just fantastic.
Hard to choose a #favoritecover but I do notice my favorites tend to be highly stylized with great use of colour and font. I also love when the publishers play with covers and dust jackets by adding die cuts or unusual material or raised font, etc. Wish I knew all the technical terms :p #riotgrams #bookriot
Such a good read so far, it's a major page turner! I can't wait ro finish it but I'll also be sad to leave the world that Patrick Ness created. It's such a unique story and it reminds me of something from Black Mirror on Netflix. #morethanthis #patrickness
Ein Spiel mit unseren Vorstellungen vom Leben (nach dem Tod). Thema ist, was wohl jede/-r schon einmal gedacht, nämlich: "War's das jetzt oder kommt da noch mehr?" Diese Grundidee gefällt mir. Und auch die Herangehensweise überzeugt mich. Zunächst. Dann entwickelt sich die Geschichte jedoch so vorhersehbar, dass ein deutlicher Unterhaltungs-Qualitätsverlust eintritt.
Fazit: zu lang. Zu wenig Spannung/Handlung. Zu viele Wiederholungen.
Schon nach kurzer Zeit frage ich mich, warum "Mehr als das" so lange auf meinem SuB gelegen hat. ?
Total anders als die "New World"-Trilogie – was ja gut ist, weil es die Vielseitigkeit des Autors zeigt – aber durch die Szenerie, in der die Handlung beginnt, sehr packend. Bis jetzt wird die Story geschickt vorangetrieben. Auch wenn ich stellenweise an James Dashners #GameMaster denken muss.
This is my current read for my school bookclub, I have read it before but am enjoying the chance to read it again. My friend got it signed for me which I am eternally grateful for because Patrick Ness is a wonderful author!
Just read it and find all the answers for the questions this book will give you. It's genre is so surprising. I never imagine how the story's theme jumped, you have to experience it firsthand.
This a huge cliffhanger but I appreciate the story. I should say millennial must read this. And, I'm now dying to read all Patrick Ness books.
This is what happens when you read and review a book while I bed with a high fever:
Oh, and now I need someone to explain the book 😂
