Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Books On My Spring 2018 TBR. There are literally hundreds of books that I want to add to my TBR. But basically, I suck at TBRs and almost never read the ones which I decided to read in the first place 😀 But, this doesn’t mean that I can’t create a one, right? 😛 So this time again, instead of simply presenting the topic as it is, I am twisting it a little bit. My topic for today is not ten but Fifteen #Diverse YA Contemporary Books Written by #Diverse Female Authors on My Spring TBR.
Guys, this book was incredible and I wasn’t really expecting it to be so good. It was brutal but honest. I seriously have so many feelings about this book that, maybe, this review doesn’t justify it. You know, sometimes you come across such books where you feel so happy that you read it and become sad thinking about the actual story. This is what exactly happened to me for this book. This story is about Kiko, who is half Asian (a Japanese-American). She is trying to find her place in life while dealing with the stress of her family and her narcissistic mother, who is always surrounded by her own thoughts and always considered Kiko as inferior. She deals with her childhood trauma and social anxiety while in search of her real motive and the aim to get admission in an art school.
Guys! This book was so amazing I can’t even! It was brilliant. I haven’t read many fantasy books (in fact I haven’t read many books, lol) but this was like straight from a movie. If you have watched and loved Pirates of Carribean, then it’s for sure that you would love this book. It has Pirates, sirens, mermaids, mermen, kings & queens, kingdoms. What else do you need for a perfect story? 😀
So, this is weird. I have never ever written a review immediately after finishing the book. And while I am writing this, it is 1:30 AM here! Can you believe it? This book just made me crazy and I have like multiple thoughts running wild into me, like spirals (yeah I am using the line from this book) and I want to share all those thoughts into this post, right now. Yes, I can’t wait to write it because I don’t want to miss anything that I am feeling right now. And pardon me before you go any further, this is going to be my longest review ever
John Green was already one of my favourite authors before reading this book. I had read just The Fault in Our Stars by him yet I liked him. His writing is so raw and real. When I finished this book, I was not sure how to write its review. Whether to be happy or to be sad. I was conflicted literally because of the ending? I am not sure if it was meant to end like that or it was on purpose? But yet, I love the overall book. But here, I should definitely mention that I would have enjoyed it way more if I would have read it like 3-4 years back.
