As about life She wanted to travel the world and live out of a suitcase and have these big adventures And I wanted to believe that I could be like her and keep up with her But actually I was resenting her and resenting myself Husband for Real for not just admitting that I wasn t that person I like to travel and see the world but at the end I want to come home and have a uiet life where I wake up at the same time every day and go to the same place and get toeel like I m doing something worthwhile Nope not a Root to Stem fan I liked all of the characters but I just really I mean REALLY disliked the writing style On top of being dull itelt disjointed and awkward Also there are three different POV s and three different tenses of writing Hard Pushed for each uh no Unfortunately this just wasn t the bookor me I had such high hopes How Philosophy Works for Fans of the Impossible Life the tag line The story of a girl her gay bestriend and the boy who Charlie Hernndez the League of Shadows falls in love with both of them caught my attention the moment I saw it and I was expecting some kind of epic bisexual love triangle or possibly even a relationship that developed between all three main characters I m not usually aan of love triangles but I would definitely put my irritation to one side The Little Book of Comfort for a story like that Unfortunately that isn t what this story is about so I ended upeeling incredibly disappointed I don t think that s necessarily the author s Dancing on the Ceiling fault but whoever was in charge of writing that marketing tag line definitely did the book a disservice Hopefully if you go into it without that same expectation you ll end up enjoying the story much than I didThis book is toldrom three different points of view which should really allow us to get to know all of the main characters but The Wee Free Men (Discworld, for some reason I never really connected with any of them The POVs of Mira and Jeremy weren t too bad but the way Sebby s sections were written was completely jarring and the left meeeling completely disconnected Kidnapped from anything that happened to him His POV should have been the one that moved me most he was really going through some very tough times but Ielt so distanced All Quiet on the Western Front from him that I didn t even come to like him that much and I struggled to see why both Mira and Jeremy were so drawn to him He was supposed to be the brightest character someone they both adored but I just didn teel itI didn t really believe in the romance either which was incredibly disappointing The most realistic relationship was the História do Rei Transparente friendship that developed between Mira and Jeremy I reallyelt like they cared about each other and were there Best Mechanic Ever for each other but I didn teel any chemistry or romantic love between them Sebby was a bit too distant and the way he kept so many secrets and held the others at arms length just didn t work Dinosaur Dinners for me There was also one particular scene between the three of them possibly the scene that was inspirationor the tag line that made me In His Blood feel really uncomfortable it never uiteelt that all three of them were on board with what was happening and it seemed like their actions sprung rom too much alcohol rather than any real "desire they elt I was also uncomfortable about the actions of a "they An Officer and a Spy felt I was also uncomfortable about the actions of a teacher he doesn t exactly do anything wrong but he definitely oversteps boundaries and I was extremely upset by the way things played out when they turned to himor help with a major problem they were having It Exposed (Annika Bengtzon, felt a bit like it was sending a message to teenagers saying that going to an adultor help is just going to make matters worse so you re best off keeping silent and I don t think that s a helpful message to giveI have to give Kate Scelsa kudos Ooko for having such a diverse cast of characters though and she really does touch on some difficult issues We get some interesting insights into drug addiction living inoster care coping with mental health issues coming Naked from a mixed raceamily having two gay parents and even uestioning your own sexuality and I definitely enjoyed that about the story Unfortunately the rest of the story Shadow Scale (Seraphina, felllat and it didn t really eel like any of them had achieved much by the end of the book I was hoping to see them grow up and become comfortable in their own skins but I was
Left Feeling That They feeling that they right back where they started only this time they had become codependent on each other or their survivalThoughts before reading The story of a girl her gay best Nerds friend and the boy whoalls in love with both of them It only took one line of that blurb now I HAVE to read this So much love In the Shadow of the Crown (Queens of England, for this book Drag ueens mental illness some seriously witty dialogue a PoC lead and ueer characters galore this book is a must But what I love most about Fans is that it isn t afraid to turn brutal and to thrust its characters especially Sebby into a harsh light I wentrom laughing out loud on an airplane in the beginning of the novel to hurting or all of the characters by the end Side note I m really conflicted about something that happened in That Scene Toward The End and the way the something was or in this case wasn t dealt with Would love to privately hear someone s thoughts about itBut really Fans is excellen. Idamente de él Esa atracción lo llevará a sumergirse de lleno en el mundo secreto ue Mira y Sebby se han construído a medida para protegerse de los ue no entienden su anhelo de vivir de alcanzar sus sueños por imposibles ue parezca.
