Elizabeth Reads :: All The Bright Places

I So I've been slacking on the reading department. I literally have been trying to read a book for three months and was barely halfway through... I mean I thought it was me, so I didn't want to write off the book. I then received this book from Seventeen and I knew I was out of my reading "rut."
There are so many things I could say about this book. I was not giving it very high hopes just because of my "rut" and the fact that it was kinda thick. *I've read thicker just as a disclaimer.* They also claimed it was a combination of the Fault In Our Stars and Eleanor and Park. Well, I mean this is this ladies first book; I'm not expecting John Green level goodness. But I just wish I could slap my own hand and tell past me how stupid all those assumptions were. So, now that all that is established; I could give so many words about this book but here I will put a GIF. 


But in all seriousness, this book was one that I could see myself reading more than once... Which I don't really do. Also, it's one that I could see changing my life. You know those kind of moments where you just KNOW your life could be changing at that pivotal moment? Well I think this book had a lot of advice that could do that for anyone. 

It's one of those books I can't say too much about without giving the beauty of the book away. It's about a girl named Violet and a boy named Finch. And they change each other's lives. This book is breath-takingly brilliant. It's a book about life. And not just the candy coated bullshit we like to pretend is life. 

But we will just say that I literally needed a whole box of tissue for the book. I mean the whole book there were spots where I was crying. Then the last 50 pages I was a blubbering mess. 

The actual moral of the story is a give it a 14 out of 10. The characters are developed and the story is just phenomenal. So you have to read my new favorite book: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
