This week’s pick is:

all the bright places

All the Bright Places

Release date: January 6th 2014

Goodreads: The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Park in this compelling, exhilarating, and beautiful story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die.
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself-a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.

Why I’m excited: The last book I read that compared itself to Fault in Our Stars and Eleanor and Park was really good and this one definitely seems to have the quirky characters and the potential to shatter my heart.

  1. It does sound like its going to be a heart-wrenching story. I’ll probably still check it out though. Thanks for sharing!
