Today, I don’t have a good preface for this Sticky Note Review except to say that Adam Silvera is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors. I loved More Happy than Not, so when I saw on one of his social networking accounts that he had a new book coming out, I said, “definitely,” then went to my local library to make sure they’d have it. Which they did. Obviously.
Grieving teen comforted by ex’s boyfriend.
If the briefest summary in the wold strikes your fancy, here’s my review.
#bookaday History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera. #stickynotereviews I auto picked this up because I loved More Happy Than Not. I don't know what to say about History Is All You Left Me and I've been thinking about it all day. I have friends who like books about grief - this is for you. It's beautiful and heartbreaking. There was a balance between history and present that allowed us to know the Theo that Griffin knew. The plot was not as straight forward as I thought it would be - there were unexpected elements that - because I was so focused on the grief elements - that I didn't see coming. Griffin was truly a teenager - wanting to figure his way through his grief himself. I also wanted more from Wade (but this made sense given the narrator). #bookstagram #instabook #bookreview
