Last week I finished Adam Silvera’s debut novel, More Happy Than Not, which isn’t all that much of a story in and of itself. The story is really about how the book ended up in the hands of a student when I was only about 30 pages in.
Last week, I thought it would be a great idea to put a sign on my lectern and display the books that I’m currently reading. A student saw the cover (because whoever says that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover is right, but that’s just not how most humans work–especially not humans of the teenage variety) and thought it looked cool. Luckily for me, the Indianapolis-Marion County Pubic Library (Central Library downtown is my favorite place in the entire world) had an ebook copy, which I checked out, and then I promptly handed the hard copy to my student. Who was very happy.
#bookaday More Happy than Not by Adam Silvera. #stickynotereviews I should have guessed this book would make me cry. The idea that forgetting is a cure all… Yeah. This novel handled (almost) all the tough issues in my wheelhouse – class, sexuality, race – and did so in a way I think most readers can connect with. If you read it, let me know what you thought! #reading #bookstagram #books
