Bout of Books 10: Day six


On day six, I knuckled down and finally finished Every Day by David Levithan.

This book ripped my heart out and tore it to pieces. And I loved it. The conclusion was definitely not what I was expecting—I tend to have a love/hate relationship with open-endings—but I really felt like it stayed true to the message(s) that Levithan was trying to convey about love, friendship and identifying oneself in the face of perpetual inconsistency.

Show an Author Some Love

For this challenge, we were asked to list some authors that we believe are deserving of a little more love on Twitter. Here were my choices:

"Alexandra Bracken: Even thought Bracken is already fairly popular online, she is extremely funny, quirky, real and down-to-earth, and I love seeing her tweets on my timeline. Definitely add her if you are a fan of her Darkest Minds trilogy.

Michelle Hodkin: If you love Hodkin's books, then you will definitely want to have her updates within reach. She is always answering questions, posting snippets and fanart and generally being a lovely person; completely deserving of ALL THE FOLLOWERS!

April Genevieve Tucholke: Tucholke's tweets reflect her writing: gothic and unconventional; qualities of which I am a HUGE fan. A relatively new author, her following is not quite as impressive as some of the others out there on the internet and, after reading Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, I definitely think she deserves some more recognition."

Less than 24 hours until the end of Bout of Books 10. Good luck!!
