Words in Deep Blue | Cath Crowley, Wyatt North

Pickpick

Blue is the warmest colour - of grief, aquatic life and friendship. Still on my YA kick, this book was a breeze to read but I loved how sweet everyone was, and it was a little love letter to bookstores, books, words and reading. ♥️ A romantic throwback squeal in delight to my teenage self.

ladym30 I absolutely loved this book for so many reasons and I love your description of it. You nailed it! 2y
lynnegweeny @ladym30 it was such a sweet read! Really brought me back to my teenage years when I still had stars in my eyes and everything was romanticized! I liked that I was still capable of feeling that way🙂 2y

This was my first young adult novel in ages, I‘d been avoiding the genre for a while, but glad to try it out again. It‘s got a nice overlap of dystopian YA fiction and meta social commentary - with a splash of overactive teenage hormones. It was compelling, but also dragged. The ending felt a bit unsatisfactory and it got worse when I found out the concept wasn‘t even the author‘s! Apparently, they crowdsource ideas now?? 🤷🏻‍♀️ I didn‘t know!

I started this book in Siem Reap, Cambodia over the holidays. It was my second time there, so while my traveling companions went tomb raiding, I went tome reading 😛🙄. It was a quick read and Celeste Ng wove a wonderful plot and story but the ending felt a tad abrupt; clearly a sign I didn‘t want it to end. First book of 2018! (The last time I was in SR, I finished Eleanor & Park - another Asian male/white female literary pairing!)
