Wow. Double Ue. Owh. Double Ue. Owh Em Gee, Guys.
Don’t you just love it how every contemporary novel these days is so dayum different? Today’s review is of Every Young Adult (Contemporary) I have Ever Read – clearly my favourite so far!
This book was an amazing examination of bullying/slut shaming/dark romance. All the feels I was given by this insanely original premise set the wings of my heart alight and made me soar through the sky of life lessons that I will probably soon forget.
The main character was so sassy/reminds me of myself as a teen/too stupid to live, whilst being damaged and complex. Her life story and what she suffers through is just really sad though. This book is about how she manages to find herself/deal with her past/grow as a person whilst gaining the love of her (short) life. She just felt so real with her artistic hobby/love of poetry/soulful side. I find there are so few characters in Young Adult novels who can play a musical instrument/draw/make obscure shadow puppets with their hands.
Luckily, despite all the drama, she had this really hot guy to help her along the way! The love interest was an asshole/very damaged/the sweetest, most understanding guy ever! God! He was just so different from every other love interest! He had a soft spot/was kind of injured animals/looked after his siblings. Wow! I mean, great, right?
Let’s not forget the best friend who was loud mouthed/promiscuous/sassy gay stereotypical, amirite, guys?
The writing was great, almost never using the word turgid – which was a great relief. Every day I can go through without stumbling across that word is a blessing.
Now that I’ve read Every YA Book I’ve Ever Read, I can’t wait to go out and read more to see what incredibly original ways authors will use all of the above to tell the same vaguely similar story. I’m so damn excited!
