I read this book for the first time this summer and I fell in love with it. It’s now one of my favourites. After re-reading it about two weeks ago, I decided it’s time for me to review it!
Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell.
It begins with the death of Vic’s father.
It ends with the murder of Mad’s uncle.
The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it.
But in order to tell their story, Vic and Mad must focus on all the chapters in between.
This is a story about:
1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.
7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.
8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.
9. A story collector.
10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.
11. Falling in love with a painting.
12. Falling in love with a song.
13. Falling in love.
2017 was an awesome reading year for me. I slowly made my way (and still am) through the best YA books from the past years. Seriously, through finding the book community it is as if a whole new world of books opened for me. The book community itself was amazing too this year. I feel so welcome here!It’s been fantastic connecting with people all over the world!
Anyway, in this post I’m going to give you an overview of everything I read in the past year, my stats and what I thought of those books! Continue reading
Through participating in the Cramathon I finished three books and started a fourth. I see this as a success even though I only completed one of the challenges. The readathon pushed me to read instead of wasting my time on Twitter and I’m really happy it did.
This post was very hard to write! I’ve had such a good reading year, reading the most amazing books every month. Needless to say, choosing which books to put on this list was very hard! Continue reading
I had a wonderful December this year. My exams didn’t make me as stressed as they usually do. I celebrated the holidays with my family. I enjoyed my time off school. I hung out with friends. I relaxed and I did the projects I’ve been putting off for quite a while! As far as reading goes, I had a pretty good month as well! Continue reading
Today I want to talk about the bookish goals I’m setting myself in 2018! The list is a lot shorter than my 2017 goals, but I think that will give me a chance to concentrate more on what I set out to do. So without further ado, let’s get started!
Today I’m going to make a post showing you all of my favourite covers from the past year! These are all books that were published in 2017. I haven’t read all of them, but does that really matter when talking about covers? Continue reading
