‘I don’t like it when you use my shampoo, because then your hair smells like me, not you.’
I really don’t know why that quote touched me as much as it did, but I’m not ashamed to admit that it did make me shed a few tears – I was already feeling quite emotional from the rollercoaster ride that was their romance, and it really hit home because it was such an ordinary, day-to-day thing to comment upon.
This wasn’t my favourite David Levithan book, but I can see myself coming back to this one over and over again in the future – it was a very quick read, taking me only a couple of hours, but I did really enjoy this one.
There were still a couple of issues with it – something that is meant to be really subtle and surprising was really obvious to me from one of the second chapters, so all of the hints and clues placed throughout just kind of annoyed me. But other than that, this one was an absolute rollercoaster, and I could not predict how it was going to end.
If you haven’t read a Lauren Oliver novel yet, you really need to get on with it – you will not regret it, I promise you.
That was all I managed to read during these three days, but I’m pretty proud of it – I’d wanted to read both books for so long but hadn’t had any time, and they both ended up being ace. Got some other exciting book things coming on the blog later this week, so keep an eye out!
