Source I God at the Ritz: Attraction to Infinity A Priest Physicist Talks About Science, Sex, Politics, and Religion received a digital copy of this book for free on aead to Don't Wake Up review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss This felt a little dangerous this interest in other people It meant that there was something that I needed or at least wanted It seemed to demand some kind of action on my part and I had no idea what was supposed to come next This was a bit of an unusual story and it was written similarly to The Perks of Being a WallflowerI felt uite sorry for each of the characters in this story even though she put on a brave face Mira was obviously suffering with depression and the lack of support sheeceived from her parents was awful Poor Sebby also had a lack of support and even his foster mother didn t seem to care much about him and Jeremy was the victim of bullying to the point where he had no friends at all You better not try to pretend to the boy who was in the psych ward with you for three weeks of our lives that you Reduced re the only crazy person sitting here The storyline in this was about Jeremy becoming friends with Mira and Sebby and finally feeling like he had someone toely on as well as being able to help Mira and Sebby in Double Betrayal return The pace in this was uite slow but the underlying messages andelationships between the characters were the most interesting part of the storyThere was some complicated omances springing but between these three and there were some mentions of sexual acts See Jeremy girls aren t that hard to please The ending to this was pretty open and could have done with being a little concrete eally May we live the impossible life 7 out of 10 25 starsI originally The Magistrates' Court: An Introduction (Fifth Edition) rated this a 35 but had to drop myating after I thought about all the problems I had with it More extensive thoughts will be on my channel and blog A seriously affecting to me anyway YA novel about three high schoolers messy and intertwined lives biracial Mira who struggles with depression gay or bisexual identification in progress Jeremy who s targeted for bullying because of his gay dads and gay or homoromanticbisexual unclear foster kid and drug user Sebby who met Mira while they were both in inpatient mental health treatment I can t help but interpret their elationship as a shifting polyamorous triad with various levels of sexual and omantic attractionbehavior and passionate friendship between various pairs in a very teenage way where no one s ever 100% sure what s going on except they can t stand to be apart I actually Nomadische Lebenswelten Und Zarische Politik: Der Aufstand In Zentralasien 1916 really liked that ambiguity and lack of labels here as it felt appropriate to the amount of chaos and self discovery each character was dealing with Not all of theelationship parts are healthy either which again feels appropriate to the characters It s the kind of book where you want to scoop up all the main characters in your arms give them hot chocolate and tell them everything is going to be okay and then go yell at their various parents foster parents Who Are Fucking Up are fucking up MAKE them fix everything they can So I don t know if Scelsa intended the ending to be ambiguous but I found it to be so yet I cannot help but interpret it in the most positive way possible because that s what I need from this book YMMV I LOVE the first line of that synopsis This is the story of #a girl her gay best friend and the boy in love with # girl her gay best friend and the boy in love with of them enough that I m going to ignore how not interested I am in the The Crimson Thread: A Retelling of Rumpelstiltskin rest of The book is fucked up in all theight places and I need to process all the fuckery because hot damn Review to come This is the story of a girl her gay best friend and the boy in love with both of them I don t want to The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog's Life Quality and Longevity read below that line to know that Ieally No Beast So Fierce: The Terrifying True Story of the Champawat Tiger, the Deadliest Animal in History really REALLY want toead Fans of the Impossible LifePlease be good I Close to the Land: The Way We Lived in North Carolina, 1820-1870 received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley This in no way impacted on my viewWell that was disappointing Like most people I was originally drawn in by the first line of the synopsis This is the story of a girl her gay best friend and the boy in love with both of them However theomance was not between the three characters and was barely existence What was there between Sebby and Jeremy was destructive and not enjoyable at all I wouldn t even say you could exactly call it a Berlayar di Pamor Badik relationshipI only finishedeading this book last night and already can t L. Munatius Plancus remember a lot of it That is not what you want from a book It was a book I forced myself to finish and don teally understand why I didn t DNF it earlier I wasn t bad in the sense that it was a chore to finish Münchhausen's Pigtail, or Psychotherapy Reality rather it was simply boring Nothing kept my attention Out of the various characters we met Mira was one of the only ones I liked and I felt she was brought down by Sebby and was better on her own Sebby was a character who for meuined the whole book I never liked him from the get go and everything he did made me sort of hate him a little If the book was just Mira and Jeremy with their other friends I might have enjoyed it a lot I also had a majot problem with the format of the book It was split between three PoV s Mira Sebby and Jeremy which normally wouldn t bother me However each one was in a different tense The split between 1st 2nd and 3rd tense was so choppy and it uined the eading experience Like I ve already said if Mira and Jeremy were the only PoV Mira va a empezar de cero en un nuevo instituto justo un año después de ue su gran aventura acabara en el hospital Ha prometido a sus padres ue se va a comportar como una persona normalSebby parece llevar la luz del sol allá donde va. It might not have been too bad If this is Scelsa s writing style then I m sorry to say I won t be The Pink Pearl reading any of her booksAnother thing that annoyed me when I finished the book was how many things weren t tied up or answered What s happening with Rose and Ali Is Talia going to be punished How does Peter fare Do Mira and Julie get along now etc etc I know you tend to get a lot of open ended contemporary YAs these days but this was just taking it too far It seems a bit lazy as if some of the plot points were just added for shock value and nothing elseYeah so this book was not for me I understand that a lot of people enjoyed it but I wasn t lucky enough If you think you can cope with the issues I had then be my guest and I wish you luck Sooo many emotionsight now humans SO MANY EMOTIONS I thought this was going to be a solid 5 star Migrant Resistance in Contemporary Europe read but there just a few niggling details that I wasn t okay with so it s basically a 45 staread and it s STUPENDOUS and I loved it and wow I m not a very emotional The Violinist and The Son of Redhead: Two Plays by Leonard Melfi reader gah I know It s a failing But I felt totally caught up in this book It glued itself to my soul IT JUST DID I wanted to laugh and cry and maybe break a brick wall and definitely craved pizza I am a fan of this book har har did you get it DID YOU Okaynever mindHow do I even sum up its beautifulness It s about three kids Jeremy Mira and Sebby and they each narrate a bit but all in a different style Jeremy is in 1st person Mira is in 3rd and Sebby who doesn t have a lot of chapters is in 2nd person IT WAS INCREDIBLE I ve neveread a book that used all 3 before and it flowed and I m such a fan I swear I ll stop saying fan soon exceptmaybe I won t because PUN HAAnd we gotta talk about these characters I loved them ALL They were all sodimensional Like they felt Fairy Tales are True: Silent Reach from the Dunes to the Khumba Mela real and I felt so so connected I just wanted to hug them all forever And theye incredibly messed up Omg adorable little messed up darlings MIRA Wow Mira I just adored her I JUST DID She wasn t skinny and struggled with her self image and she loved thrift shopping me too although I don t do it for artI do it because I m stingey and she had chronic fatigue and depression And she was just so Galaxies in the Universe: An Introduction relatable My soul BURNED for her when people just dismissed her depression as nothing and something she could control if sheeally wanted to Omg no no noooo And her depression was written SO PERFECTLY WOW SEBBY I always love the messed up broken sassy characters so so much and Sebby was no exception ADORABLE LITTLE FOOL I wanted to strangle him at the end but ya know in a good way He was impeccably written I loved his sass and his uips and how he was just this explosion of life and colour and glitter He gay and a kid just this explosion of life and

And you need to live for you or you Victorian Fashions: A Pictorial Archive, 965 Illustrations re going to make yourself miserableSo what were you hidingWell I was in aelationship with someone who had a lot of very grand ideas about life She wanted to travel the world and live out of a suitcase and have these big adventures And I wanted to believe that I could be like her and keep up with her But actually I was Jack and the Beanstalk: Ladybird First Favourite Tales resenting her andesenting myself for not just admitting that I wasn t that person I like to travel and see the world but at the end I want to come home and have a uiet life where I wake up at the same time every day and go to the same place and get to feel like I m doing something worthwhile Nope not a fan I liked all of the characters but I just Captain Corellis Mandolin really I mean REALLY disliked the writing style On top of being dull it felt disjointed and awkward Also there are three different POV s and three different tenses of writing for each uh no Unfortunately this just wasn t the book for me I had such high hopes for Fans of the Impossible Life the tag line The story of a girl her gay best friend and the boy who falls in love with both of them caught my attention the moment I saw it and I was expecting some kind of epic bisexual love triangle or possibly even aelationship that developed between all three main characters I m not usually a fan of love triangles but I would definitely put my irritation to one side for a story like that Unfortunately that isn t what this story is about so I ended up feeling incredibly disappointed I don t think that s necessarily the author s fault but whoever was in charge of writing that marketing tag line definitely did the book a disservice Hopefully if you go into it without that same expectation you ll end up enjoying the story much than I didThis book is told from three different points of view which should Landscapes of the Chinese Soul really allow us to get to know all of the main characters but for someeason I never Landscapes of the Chinese Soul: The Enduring Presence of the Cultural Revolution really connected with any of them The POVs of Mira and Jeremy weren t too bad but the way Sebby s sections were written was completely jarring and the left me feeling completely disconnected from anything that happened to him His POV should have been the one that moved me most he waseally going through some very tough times but I felt so distanced from him that I didn t even come to like him that much and I struggled to see why both Mira and Jeremy were so drawn to him He was supposed to be the brightest character someone they both adored but I just didn t feel itI didn t eally believe in the omance either which was incredibly disappointing The most Media, Mobilization and the Umbrella Movement realisticelationship was the friendship that developed between Mira and Jeremy I Getting a Life with Asperger's: Lessons Learned on the Bumpy Road to Adulthood really felt like they cared about each other and were there for each other but I didn t feel any chemistry oromantic love between them Sebby was a bit too distant and the way he kept so many SECRETS AND HELD THE OTHERS AT and held the others at length just didn t work for me There was also one particular scene between the three of them possibly the scene that was inspiration for the tag line that made me feel Wie ich Brad Pitt entführte really uncomfortable it never uite felt that all three of them were on board with what was happening and it seemed like their actions sprung from too much alcoholather than any Encyclopedia of Management Development Methods real desire they felt I was also uncomfortable about the actions of a certain teacher he doesn t exactly do anything wrong but he definitely oversteps boundaries and I was extremely upset by the way things played out when they turned to him for help with a major problem they were having It felt a bit like it was sending a message to teenagers saying that going to an adult for help is just going to make matters worse so youe best off keeping silent and I don t think that s a helpful message to giveI have to give Kate Scelsa kudos for having such a diverse cast of characters though and she eally does touch on some such a diverse cast of characters though and she eally does touch on some issues We get some interesting insights into drug addiction living in foster care coping with mental health issues coming from a mixed France is a Feast: The Photographic Journey of Paul and Julia Child race family having two gay parents and even uestioning your own sexuality and I definitely enjoyed that about the story Unfortunately theest of the story fell flat and it didn t Kandinsky really feel like any of them had achieved much by the end of the book I was hoping to see them grow up and become comfortable in their own skins but I was left feeling that they wereight back where they started only this time they had become codependent on each other for their survivalThoughts before Blood Orange reading The story of a girl her gay best friend and the boy who falls in love with both of them It only took one line of that blurb now I HAVE toead this So much love for this book Drag ueens mental illness some seriously witty dialogue a PoC lead and ueer characters galore this book is a must But what I love most about Fans is is a must But what I love most about Fans is it isn t afraid to turn brutal and to thrust its characters especially Sebby into a harsh light I went from laughing out loud on an airplane in the beginning of the novel to hurting for all of the characters by the end Side note I m eally conflicted about something that happened in That Scene Toward The End and the way the something was or in this case wasn t dealt with Would love to privately hear someone s thoughts about itBut eally Fans is excellen. Idamente de él Esa atracción lo llevará a sumergirse de lleno en el mundo secreto ue Mira y Sebby se han construído a medida para protegerse de los ue no entienden su anhelo de vivir de alcanzar sus sueños por imposibles ue parezca.
