I totally forgot about this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post, and that’s why it is now being published on a Wednesday. BUT this week’s prompt was not very inspiring to me anyways, so… it’s kind of a lose/win, instead of a lose/lose.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish. Every Tuesday, we book bloggers congregate to discuss ten interesting (and bookish) things with each other. To join in and view our linkup, click over here. This week’s prompt was 10 Debut Authors Whose Sophomore Novels You’re Looking Forward To.
I am such a bad bookworm, guys. I read almost NO debut authors this year. I guess I just felt like I needed to catch up with all the amazing books that have come out in the past few years! Also, literally every single book is being made into a movie, and we all know that you need to read that sh*t before the movie. Or YOU WILL DIE.
But I did read at least ONE debut author. And that was Nicola Yoon, the fab author of Everything, Everything. I have a review on this review coming out soon, but until then, here’s a little synopsis & blurb:
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
It’s an adorable contemporary with funny dialogue and a bookish main character *OMFG dying from relatableness*. There were a few plot holes, but it was really fun and quick.
Anyways, I would definitely read anything and everything else by Nicola Yoon, if she writes more.
I feel like this post is ridiculously short. WHATEVS. You win some, you lose some.
Have you read Everything, Everything? Did you like it? What are some debut recs you have for me?
