History Is All You Left Me
History Is All You Left Me | Adam Silvera
OCD-afflicted Griffin has just lost his first love, Theo, in a drowning accident. In an attempt to hold onto every piece of the past, he forges a friendship with Theo's last boyfriend, Jackson. When Jackson begins to exhibit signs of guilt, Griffin suspects he's hiding something, and will stop at nothing to get to the truth about Theo's death. But as the grieving pair grows closer, readers will question Griffin's own version of the truth both in terms of what he's willing to hide and what true love means."

Anyone else doing any of the Story Graph reading challenges? If so, which ones? And do you only add the books on Story Graph or do you also do a notebook with all your challenges in there?

These are the ones I've committed to so far but might add some more later.
Would love to see what everyone else is doing :)

(Tagged my current read -- which btw is SO pulling at my heartstrings right now)

JamieArc I‘m doing the #Booked2022 reading challenge. I‘m keeping track on StoryGraph, but I also love spreadsheets so I have a spreadsheet for it too. 13mo
chasjjlee @JamieArc that's awesome ♥️ I keep track in my notebook too. I just learned about the Story Graph challenges so I definitely wanted to participate this year. I'll have to check out the booked2022 challenge 👍. 13mo
StayCurious I‘m doing some of the romance tropes challenges on StoryGraph (ok a lot of them) - I also started a reading journal to help keep track. 13mo
chasjjlee @StayCurious love the romance tropes! I want to add more challenges to my list because I love creating them in my notebooks ♥️. If you post your journals tag me 🙂 I'd love to see them! 13mo

⚠️Spoilers⚠️So sad! I thought Jackson and Griffin were going to hook up eventually, but the whole scene was heartbreaking. When he starts doing the kisses?! I could feel the out of body experience of betrayal. I liked Theo a lot, he always seemed ethereal and idealized; by the end of it, they were all flawed. The fog of love consumed all of them and bound them together. (And not even because Griff literally hooked up with all 3 guys in the story)

*spoilers without context above! 🤪 Great book! The story hits harder the farther you go into it, which just demonstrates the beautiful writing. So much about love, mental health, friendship, sexuality, and grief, and how they all come together in a completely honest and messy way. There‘s a line about letting somebody go for something that isn‘t their fault that hit me so hard. Death is weird but there is power and light in history

I really enjoyed this book. It was told in a dual timeline and they eventually blended into each other which was pretty cool. I definitely enjoyed the past timeline more than I enjoyed the present one. Overall it was an interesting read, but I wasn‘t wowed.

A well told story of love, friendship and grief amongst a group of queer teenage boys. If I'd read this as a teen I'd have wept buckets, I'm sure. I hope this qualifies for #LatinxAuthor #Booked2021

Reggie I‘ve read two of his other books and they have somewhat destroyed me so this one will have to wait. He tells a good story, though. 2y

My first #littlefreelibrary trip of 2021 was to unhaul 4 2020 reads (top). I swapped them for two new reads (bottom), which puts me at +1 owned books for the year so far, but +5 unread.

Zero pennies spent, so there‘s that!

#ThankfulThursday @Aleksandra_G
1. I won‘t be attending a horror film fest in person this year, but COVID gives me an excuse to stay at home and watch all the scary movies and read all of the scary books that I can manage!
2. I‘m grateful for some close friends, that even if I don‘t see them enough due to busy schedules or because they don‘t live nearby, we stay in touch more than ever thanks partially to COVID
Would you like to play @JPSHANK

Aleksandra_G Love the answers! 😁 2y

Interesting story, wasn‘t my favourite book at points though, and I didn‘t relate to the characters as much as I would have liked to. 3/5

Late post, but May is Mental Health Awareness month. Here is my TBRf (To Be Read from) pile, as I likely won‘t get to them all this month. They all deal with the topic in one way or another. I‘ve already read the top two and liked them both. Now I‘m on the tagged book.

Funny story...I was so worried about dropping the books in the pool that I dropped my phone in instead 🤦🏻‍♀️

Riveted_Reader_Melissa 😂 my first thought at that post was...those books are making me nervous that close to the water. I hope your phone is ok? 4y
Ashley_Nicoletto Oh my gosh. 🤣🤣 Eliza and Her Monsters is easily one of my favorite books ever. I devoured it in one afternoon and every time I see it I immediately think “there are monsters in the sea” 🌊 4y
ChasingOm I also loved Eliza and Darius the Great is Not Okay. 4y

Lots of smiles and tears while reading this one. The author has such a talent for detailing teenage boys that I can‘t help but fall in love with them. But, as usual with this author, I‘m left feeling blue at the end.

Beyond amazing!! I almost bailed at the beginning as I felt a little too old (32) to relate to a YA book but I am so grateful that I stuck with it and got to experience the wonder of this novel.

First time I‘ve read this author and I absolutely love the way he turns a phrase! I‘m going to bed pretty quick here but wanted it recorded that I hit 11 hours on this #24B4Monday. I plan to do even better the next time round!

#WeNeedDiverseBooks: Adam Silvera is my favorite LGBTQ+ author. His books are so powerful and make me cry all the time. Yes it's YA and some people hold that genre in contempt, but his stories are compelling and well-written. I have read all 3 of his books, "History is all you left me" the most recently. "They Both Die at the end" is my favorite though. #24in48

So I managed to finish this book less than 2 hours into the #24in48 readathon.
I have yet to find an Adam Silvera book that hasn't made me cry. I have read all three, and although "They Both Die at the End" made me cry the hardest, this one is a close second.
I edited the pic to add the timer, because I was too much of a loser to remember to add it the first time. ??‍♀️

I live in France so for me the #24in48 challenge starts... Right now!
I'll start it in style by finishing the book I'm currently reading: "History is all you left me", by the amazing Adam Silvera. Hopefully I will finish it before my almost-29-year-old body falls asleep! ?

“I love you, but I can‘t stay longer.” Beautiful, suspenseful, heart-warming, devastating, genuine. This is my favorite Adam Silvera book so far. This book is so so wonderful for anyone struggling with heartbreak.

I'm a little behind on #twointhree but it's ok because I was doing other things like watching the entire first season of American Vandal (so funny) and hanging out with my dad.

I did read an entire 51k word fanfic. That counts right? Now I'm trying to finish this and there's so much 😭. @Samplergal

Hands down now my favourite book.

This book explores sexuality, memories, friendship, mental health, and a whole host of other issues that are vital to understand in today's society. It has completely captured my heart and I know I'll be left thinking about it for days and weeks and months and years and lives to come.

That is all you need to know; this is the sort of story you should go into blindly.

Please read this ASAP and share it!

I don't know how to explain this story. It's about grief and finding who you are. About learning to open yourself to new situations but letting yourself remember the past. It's full of regret and mistakes, love and loss; it's so very human.

I loved this ❣️
