Anybody else ever get caught in this awful phase where you wanna read books but there is so much going on in your life that you couldn't even enjoy it..... no.... just me ugh.....

LauraBrook Yes, I‘ve totally been there. Frustrating and annoying, but thankfully it passes...eventually. Hang in there! 😊 13mo

Thing about Jellyfish | Ali Benjamin

I really liked this book. I would compare this book to A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness but only in the way that it handles grief for young people. This book was a quick read and I kept reminiscing back to when I was in Middle school and all of it felt so real. overall great read👍👍

I loved this book so much. I loved this quite a lot more than I thought I would. It had a very interesting story I loved the characters. I especially liked how he handled the lead character Mike's, personal struggles with his 9/10. At times I felt the story went a little flat, but it quickly made up for itself. I feel Ness did a very good job depicting what a persons lifestyle with that disorder would be like.

This is by far one of the funniest books Ive ever read! it was so quirky yet it was just right for the story unfolding around it. I liked it a lot and the writing style was pretty decent. I recommend quite a bit!

Beneath a Scarlet Sky | Mark T. Sullivan
Pickpick

I loved this book so much! it was definitely weird to hear about WW2 from a different countrys perspective. Also I have never heard of this person until now and I want to learn even more about him. I appreciated and loved it so much. The Author had a very unique way of blending history and what this person went through very well. 10/10

I loved this book. The plot was a bit confusing but it was better once more was revealed. I have never had schizophrenia but I feel this book was good representation for this disease. I loved it❤

I loved the concept of this book . it sounded kind of cute yet complex at the same exact times. At times I got really annoyed with the main character and how he acted towards rhiannon but overall great read!

Is it weird that I love books that make me cry? My parents think I'm insane for this. I just really love books that are able to spark such a strong emotion from me.

Andrew65 Books should elicit strong emotions. 2y
