Fantastically realistic! | Turtles All the Way Down

Hey guys! I preordered Turtles All the Way Down, John Green’s new book, a couple of months ago, and I actually got my copy a day early! It was, indeed, signed, and of course I immediately had to dig in. Since it only came out a few days ago, I thought I’d review it (wow, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these) and just share my thoughts in general!

Turtles All the Way Down is an incredible, down-to-earth story about a 16-year-old girl named Aza who deals with a difficult mental illness in the form of thought spirals. Oh, and on the side, she’s trying to maintain her friendships, possibly fall in love (without kissing), and track down a missing billionaire. Continue reading

Everything All At Once: ALL OF THE CHARACTERS LOVE BOOKS. I LOVE THEM.

Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these (a review, that is), so I feel a little rusty. However, the challenge for Day 2 of the Biannual Bibliothon is to write a review, so I figured I could give it a go! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I missed yesterday’s challenge because I was participating in the 24 in 48 readathon, but maybe I’ll have time to make it up sometime later this week! We’ll just have to see. Today’s blog challenge is hosted by Kassie @ Miss Sassy Kassie, so make sure to click on over and check out her review! I also recently saw Aimal @ Bookshelves and Paperbacks’ post with tips for writing reviews, so I’ll be keeping that in mind. It’s definitely worth a read! Anyhoo, let’s get on with the show, shall we?

Everything All At Once by Katrina Leno

I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Lottie Reaves has always had anxiety. But when her aunt Helen dies, she starts to believe death is awaiting her around every corner. And really, what is the reason for living in the first place, anyway?

Aunt Helen wasn’t only her aunt; she was the bestselling author of the Alvin Hatter series. As her final gift and goodbye to Lottie, she leaves her 24 letters: each with a dare. And all of them leading to a secret she began hiding long ago.

O-kay, so I’m kind of terrible at writing synopses. But you get the idea. The whole reason I requested this book is because I had read Katrina Leno’s previous book, The Lost and the Found. (And loved it, of course!) But I completely did not know what to expect from this book, and I was extremely pleasantly surprised.

I love books with dares, challenges, bucket lists, games, etc. I find them entertaining and I always want to know what happens next. I requested this book ages ago, so when I went into it, I had basically zero idea what the book was about. Which made the whole thing that much more exciting and fun!

All of my thoughts are so scrambled, so let’s just make some lists, shall we? Continue reading
