The Upside of Unrequited | Becky Albertalli
post image
Pickpick

Sorry I haven't posted in 3 billion years...
Anyway, after I read Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, I had to pick this up, and it's so worth it! Although definitely a light read, it had some good emotion to it.
I completely recommend it!
Sorry for the horrible photo

LiteraryinLititz I read Simon a while ago and liked but didn't love it. How would you compare this one? 3y
Pandyfish @LiteraryinLititz this has fewer cliff hangers, less suspense. But still has amazing characters! This one also deals with stuff from a different perspective. 3y
LiteraryinLititz @Pandyfish Thanks! Good to know! 3y
Tigerbook I keep seeing that book in the library and meaning to pick it up but never do😝 2y

Every Day | David Levithan
post image
Pickpick

Hi Littens! It's been awhile. I promise to review the books I read while I was away, but for now I'm going to catch up on my #libraryhaul 😊.
I read Another Day a couple months ago. I enjoyed it, and was exited for this. Turns out, I love Every Day much more than Another. The style of writing was amazing, and the way A sees the world is very very impressive. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Zelma Yay, i'm glad you liked it! I remember you reading the companion first and hoped you would read this as well. I love it so much! ❤️ (edited) 3y
Pandyfish @Zelma thanks!! I ❤ it too :) 3y

I loved Dorothy Must Die, so I'm really excited for this! #TBR #EReader #Nook
On a different note, I'm going out of country for three weeks! The phone service and wifi looks to be sketchy, so I don't know how much I can check @Litsy 🙁. Luckily, I have a lot of books, so I'll be able to make it through😊. Just in case... What do I do if I run out of books? 😳📚

ValerieAndBooks Have a good trip. Hope you'll find a local bookstore (or more) while you're there 😊📚 3y

Speak | Laurie Halse Anderson

Today, I'm putting aside what I'm #CurrentlyReading to read this comfort book. I will not listen to the radio, or watch the news. I also won't do #24in48 😞, because I'm going to a march tomorrow. After I reread Speak for the millionth time, I'll do a Calvin and Hobbes marathon, while drinking hot cocoa. Read one of your favorite books today!

Will Grayson, Will Grayson | John Green, David Levithan
post image
Pickpick

My first book of the #LitsyAtoZ challenge! I would rate this ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5, cause I felt like the book should be called "Tiny Cooper; Will Grayson." (I can't explain why without spoiling it for you). Other than that, I really liked it, especially the contrast between Green and Leviathan's writing. I can't wait for more Green #ya !

Another Day | David Levithan
post image
Pickpick

This book is not what I expected! I thought that it would be about how to get out of an abusive relationship, but it's actually about ignoring how people look on the outside, and just looking on the inside. Now I need to read Every Day! ⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of five, just because of the ending 😊

Zelma Wow, we had a very different experience with this book. I despised it! Every Day is amazing and wonderful and this one almost ruined it for me. I hope you enjoy the other title. (Isn't that the great thing about books? We all come away with such unique experiences.) 3y
Pandyfish @Zelma why didn't you enjoy Another Day? I love hearing all the different views of a book:) Maybe if I read Every Day first, I wouldn't like Another Day... 3y
Zelma @Pandyfish I loved A's story so much and Another Day put it on the back burner by focusing on Rhiannon. A came off as almost stalkerish or at least clingy, and didn't feel nearly as complex and interesting as in Every Day. I also really didn't care for Rhiannon as a character and hated spending a whole book in her head. Plus, Every Day seems like a standalone novel, whereas Another Day hints at a series. I liked it as a standalone. (edited) 3y
Pandyfish @Zelma I can see that. Now I really want to read Every Day! 3y

Reality Boy | A.S. King
post image
Pickpick

Gerald is an almost 17 year old who, at the age of 5 was a reality TV show star. Now, he is dealing with the effects of that. Some of those are: anger issues, zero friends and being in the SPED room at school.

I picked this up at the library, not expecting much. I now want to read all of A.S. King's work. I know I'm super late, but it's the perfect example of a #DisfunctionalFamily

No book has made me cry like this for a long time. It manly was happy crying, though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ x a million stars. I like this almost as much as Speak 😮. An extremely important look at anti-Islam views and dealing with loss.

If you haven't read this yet, add it to the top of your #TBR . No words can express how amazing Alia and Jesse's journey is.

The Beginning of Everything | Robyn Schneider

The #libraryhaul I just did had NONE of the books I originally wanted. All of those #tbr books were checked out, so I placed a hold for each one. Then, I got some other ones, cause what else should I have done? :)

The Beginning of Everything is my second Robyn Scheinder and I'm super excited. I loved Extraordinary Means.

This is the second greatest #NonBookThing ever! (1st being Litsy, of course). Inside it's a structured journal with points for quotes, plot twists, and everything else imaginable. It's basically a personal Litsy on paper😍. I guess I'll have to get a book and fill it out, or what's the point? 😉

Prom | Laurie Halse Anderson
post image
Pickpick

Laurie Halse Anderson's books are serious and beyond realistic. Same with Prom, except without the serious life-changing part. This book is for all the "Normal kids who told me nobody ever writes about them". I really recommend it because of the incredibly realistic-ness of it! Who knows how long ago Anderson was a teen, and yet it feels like she still is one! (Psst it's almost as good as Speak, that means a ton from me?) #FunPhotoFriday

Tigerbook Anderson does it again! Her magic should be sprinkled on every one. (Including donuts ) 3y

I think the reason that a lot of people dislike the Cursed Child is that they think it's the 8th book. It's not. Instead it's a play- a very good play. I loved being with the characters again, and found the family issues to be realistic. I hope the play comes to my area!

Twisted | Laurie Halse Anderson

Tyler is a senior in high-school, who is at the bottom of the heap of popularity. He made a very bad choice at the end of junior year, and payes the consequences. Add a work-a-holic father, an alcoholic mother, a sister, and a girl, and you have Twisted. A wonder Laurie Halse Anderson tale about depression and second-chances!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of five

Dear Litsyians, I dropped my iPod that I use for Litsy, and damaged the Logic card, which makes the screen multi-colored. Now I can't edit photos:(. Here's the worse part: my iPod is going to stop working soon, and I've heard you can't have the same Litsy account on 2 devices. I might be able to still use this account, but if not, my new username will be Pandyfish16. I will tell you later.

This book does not get nearly as much attention as it should! It's about Chirp, an eleven year old girl in the 70s, and a bunch of changes that happen to her. But it isn't a very "Coming of Age" book as it is a look inside Chirp's heart. Everyone and their mother should read this, armed with a box of tissues!
