    I'll Give You The Sun is everything

    A wonderful, imaginative, vivid and deeply moving story of a family torn apart by jealousy, sorrow and love that you will wish should never end.

    One of my favourite books!

    When I heard about a new book from Jandy Nelson, I was a little nervous. I enjoyed her last book, but the writing sometimes rubbed me the wrong way and this new book is about twins- which is always a hit or miss for me. But I gave it a try, and I am so happy I did. Because let me tell you, I LOVED THIS BOOK! (that totally needed bold.) Noah and Jude are twin brother and sister, but in the past 3 years, they’ve had a falling out. Starting with Noah’s point-of-view at 13, and Jude’s at age 16, I’ll Give You the Sun tells the story of heartbreak, love, friendship and just magical-awesome-fun-shocking-stuff that only Jandy Nelson can write. (that last point was all my own, I am clearly an intricate speaker) First of all, let me state that this review will probably be biased towards one character. While I liked Jude, I am completely obsessed with Noah. He is a complex, real, compelling and just heartbreaking character. I loved his point-of-view, and seeing how his life changed over the course of 3 years- in Jude’s eyes. I liked Jude and also found her just as fascinating but she didn’t compel me as much as Noah. I want to describe every single magical thing about this book, but I think that’ll ruin it. So instead, let me just say that if you read the synopsis and it sounds right for you- read it! If you read the synopsis but are iffy about reading it, here’s what I will say: If you are looking for an awesome, compelling and lyrical novel, I highly recommend I’ll Give You the Sun. The writing is very lyrical and metaphorical, which isn’t always something readers look for, but if you give it a chance- I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

    Loved it

    This was one of those books that I tore threw because I couldn't stop reading. And yet I never wanted it to end.

    I want to hug this book

    I want to hug this book. So I am going to need to buy it in "actual book form" as well. Seriously, I am. And I don't do that. Basically: it is beautiful. It is a beautiful book. And the writing is delicious. (Portrait of a girl hugging a book).
