Yesterday, Sarah and I saw the Everything, Everything film together with our friend Becca. We’ve been looking forward to seeing this film ever since it was announced so it was so fun to go together! The film was just released in the UK on Friday and I wanted to do a post for those who have either already seen it or want to (also, for myself because I love love love writing about adaptations!)
There’s no time like the middle of the year to think about what you’ve read so far and what you loved. I’ve always done monthly wrap-ups and yearly round-ups of what i’ve read, what my ratings were and my favourites. However, i figured i may as well throw a post in mid-year about what i absolutely adored from this year so far. It might give you a little inspiration as to what to read for the next six months!
Before starting this book, I’d heard wonderful things from everyone who has read it. I kept meaning to buy it but haven’t bought many books recently so when I got it as a birthday present from my girlfriend I couldn’t wait to start. Nicola Yoon’s other very popular book, Everything, Everything, was one of my favourite books I read last year so I had really high hopes for The Sun is Also a Star. Even though I really wanted to read it, I tried to stay away from any sort of information about it because I wanted to go into it and be surprised.
It’s my first reading wrap-up of the year! I’m quite pleased that my first wrap-up of 2017 is going to be good, because i’ve had a very successful reading month! I’ve gotten around to a lot of books that i’ve wanted to read for a long time, and enjoyed them all from the most part. I’m starting the year off on a high with reading and i can only hope that this continues. Here are the books that i read in January 2017!
Going in to this novel i had very high expectations. I read Nicola Yoon’s debut novel Everything Everything in 2016 and absolutely adored it, it quickly made its way on to my favourite novels of 2016 list. So The Sun Is Also A Star was a very anticipated release for me.
There comes a time in every readers life when they read a really great novel, go to Amazon to buy the sequel, only to realise that it is in fact just a stand-alone. The horror we all feel. Luckily this weeks Top 5 Wednesday gives us a release of those emotions that left us hanging on the edge of a cliff because all we wanted was to find out if they stay together in the end!
Last month I had a very good reading month, and I wanted to continue that in April. Uni is starting to calm down as I approach my last few weeks as a student (yes, that’s right, last few weeks as a student) and it means that I have quite a bit more time to read. It also helps that over the last month I’ve read books that I’ve actually been obsessed with. In fact my new favourite contemporary novel has been read in April!
