#bookreview … This Too Is Love Kindle Edition by Anya Monroe

Genre Young Adult, Contemporary, Fantasy

I wanted best friends forever and calls from a boyfriend, but my phone only rings when some guy can’t get what he wants from his girlfriend. And knows he can get it from me. I am my mother’s daughter.

It wasn’t always like this. At first, it was just one guy, but when someone new drove me home, whistling and saying, “Damn, girl, you’re hot,” I knew what I was becoming, what I was doing.

I was going to let anyone have me until someone wanted me for more.

But then I found out I was pregnant. And I hoped everything would change.

Hope. The word carries so much. Because what if it doesn’t work out or show up and come through? But what if it does? This Too Is Love (Goodreads)

Such a powerful story. I was hooked from the beginning. This story showed me once again that in life we can become whoever we want to be regardless where we come from. We just never have to lose our faith and we have to leave the past in the past. We have to forgive the people that hurt us and simply accept them for who they are. Like this, we can take our life in our hands and decide if we will be who they thought us to be or if we will be who we want to become.

I definitely recommend this book. Five stars from me!

#bookreview … Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (kindle edition) 

Not so long ago I finished reading this book and I wanted to review it for so long, but I didn’t know how to put it in words. The thing is, this book had such a high impact on me because the things happening in it are actually happening in real life, every single day! And most of us, including me, don’t do anything to stop it! So this is not a professional review, it’s just the impact that the book had on me. 

Clay Jensen received some tapes from a girl that was going to school with him but that committed suicide. As he listens to her tapes, he realizes that there were so many occasions in which he could have helped her but he didn’t. The fact is, that he would have probably not make her change her mind, but the fact that he didn’t try really gets to him. 

Isn’t that what most of us do? See the signs but we say nothing? We turn our eyes and pretend like nothing happened? Tell people to just get over stuff? Tell them that life sucks? Yup, we do that! We don’t realize however, that our actions are actually making other people suffer. And than are those that do realize but don’t care! 

This book made me cry several times! Brought sad and heavy, heartbreaking memories! But made me realize that I must be careful with what I say or do, because there is no such thing as ‘exaggerating people’ only ‘sensitive people’! And there is nothing wrong with being sensitive!

Thanks for reading!
