They Both Die at the End: New Book Purchase!

Hello All!

The Both Die at the End (Picture of the Cover of the Book)

Can we please just take a moment to admire this beautiful book!? I have been eyeing They Both Die at the End on Goodreads, and I am elated to finally have the time to sit down and read it. This will be the first book that I have read by Adam Silvera, so I am pleased to find a new author to add to my list.  Ahhh, I am so excited!

Since it has been a while since I have been able to read the way that I have wanted to, one of the first books that I wanted to read after my “reading-hiatus”, had to be one of my favorites: a heartbreaking, thought-provoking YA or New Adult book.

After browsing through good reads, I decided that this was definitely one of the first books that I wanted read. I have high hopes for this book, and I cannot wait to start reading it tonight!

The concept of this book is emotionally intriguing to me. The idea of two people dying on the same day, both being aware of their impending deaths, and both deciding to spend their last day together, creates a swirl of thoughts and feelings that I cannot wait to discuss with others, and that I cannot wait to write a review on.

On Goodreads, I saw that someone commented, “Do they really die at the end?” I personally decided not to look at the answer to that. To, what I am sure is my detriment, there is still a little piece of me that hopes that they will both survive. Why oh why do I do this to myself?

Have you read They Both Die at the End? How many tears can I expect to shed? I would love to hear your thoughts ☺️.

Until the next chapter,

Why I Love YA Books

Hello All!

I will probably write a blog on why i love YA books at least ten different times, but this will be my first time doing so.I did not plan on writing about this topic, but now I feel compelled to.

Just in case you did not know, YA stands for, “Young Adult.” It is safe to say that I have a pretty deep obsession with YA books. As a result, I have been asked countless times why I love them so much. Today, I realized that I have never truly thought about the answer to that question. 

The open-mindedness of YA characters is what initially comes to my mind. Even though tough situations and experiences have entered and affected many of the young characters lives, there is still this open-mindedness about them that is extremely refreshing.

Brave, free, and forgiving are how I would describe a lot of YA characters. The boundaries and false limitations that the world tries to subject us to, do not tend to influence YA characters.

Young adult characters are not like a lot of adults that I am surrounded by on a daily basis. They are still willing to try when things go wrong; are willing to dream even when told their dreams are silly; and are willing to endure pain for the things and people that they are passionate about. I just love that! It reminds me to remember who I am, what I want, and where I want to go.

After writing this article, it is safe to say that I discovered a plethora of answer that answer, why I love YA books. For today’s post I just wanted to throw out my first raw thought(s).

What about you all? Why do you all love YA books? I would love to learn about your perspectives and thoughts on YA books.

Until the Next Chapter,
