I know this is my second check-in for something this week, but today I’m here to tell you about my progress with the best friend picks my TBR challenge that Angel and I are doing this year. I can’t link my original post, but I have included Angel’s original little spiel on why she picked each one. Also, go check out Angel’s update over here.
The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand
Angel’s original reason: I know you just bought this one, so I really want you to pick it up this year. I need someone to share my pain with. This book tore me to shreds, but it’s also so beautiful and I think that everyone needs to read it. It’s one of those books that will make you cry, but you will also be happy about it.
E: So I haven’t picked this one up yet and I’m not sure when I will. I know this one is going to completely destroy me, and I’m just not sure I’m mentally prepared for that right now.
The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros
Angel’s original reason: This is another one that will make you cry, but I also want you to read one of my favourite romance authors. You already know how much I love Rebecca Yarros’ books and I really can’t wait to see what you think of this one. I am starting you on the most heartbreaking I think.
E: I did read this one and I loved it. It absolutely made me bawl my eyes out and I still haven’t completely recovered. I read this back in March, so yeah you could say it had an impact.
Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett
Angel’s original reason: This is another author that you know I love. I also know that you loved the one you’ve read. But I seriously think that will fall in love with this one. It has so many elements of books that you love, plus the romance is adorable.
E: I haven’t picked this one up either yet, but I am hoping to next month and I am so ready for some cuteness.
All the Little Bones (Circus Hearts #1) by Ellie Marney
Angel’s original reason: It’s about time that you pick this one up. I have no doubt in my mind that you will fall in love with this series, just as much as her other books. I love the mix of romance and mystery and I know that you do too.
E: Okay, so here’s the thing. I read this. I did not like it. Like at all. I love Ellie Marney so much, but the only circus books I’ve ever liked are non-fiction ones looking at the horrible treatment of disabled people. I’m sorry!
Sick Kids In Love by Hannah Moskowitz
Angel’s original reason: I really want to hear your thoughts on this one here. I really enjoyed reading it last year and I think you will as well. It’s full of diversity and disability and I think you will really appreciate it. Plus it’s super cute.
E: Another one I haven’t gotten to yet, but it’s another one I’m hoping to get to either next month or in September.
