In My Mailbox (LBTM)

One of my good friends is constantly gushing about one particular book. She uses the novel in a lot of her bookstagram photos, and mentions it all the time on her blog. Soon I began seeing the cover all over instagram when other bloggers finished reading the book themselves. Apparently there was something amazing about this debut novel and, needless to say I was curious… Particularly as the book is written by a Canadian and set in London, England where I was living at the time.

Shortly after I returned home from having lived overseas for two years, my friend told me about a giveaway the author was doing and that I should enter. As by this time I was obsessed about getting my hands on this book but not yet able to afford actually buying it (London is expensive, y’all!) of course I entered. I don’t know how it was possible but, luck would have it, I won!

Truth be told, I have actually had this book for a while now. I read it and typed up the review, but somehow did not post anything. I was rather busy with moving home, job hunting, and then getting ready to move again to a new country, so I somehow failed in this regard. However, this week is entirely devoted to the novel with teasers, a review, and a special event I hosted over the summer related to this novel.

What is the book you may ask?

Red Girl Blue Boy by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

I’ve seen other kids go through it all at school. So often, it’s the same thing. Person X likes Person Y. and what do you know, it turns out that Person Y likes Person X back. It’s a cery nice thing. It’s the way life should be. But then once all the other letters of the alphabet find out about it, they stick their noses into things… Whatever the case, whatever the reasons, relationships that might otherwise have lasted wind up foundering when all the other letters of the alphabet get involved.

“You know what they say the sign of an intelligent person is? It’s the ability to hold two seemingly conflicting thoughts in your mind at once.”

Book Review: Hana by Lauren Oliver

Synopsis:  The summer before they’re supposed to be cured of the ability to love, best friends Lena and Hana begin to drift apart. While Lena shies away from underground music and parties with boys, Hana jumps at her last chance to experience the forbidden. For her, the summer is full of wild music, dancing—and even her first kiss. But on the surface, Hana must be a model of perfect behavior. She meets her approved match, Fred Hargrove, and glimpses the safe, comfortable life she’ll have with him once they marry. As the date for her cure draws ever closer, Hana desperately misses Lena, wonders how it feels to truly be in love, and is simultaneously terrified of rebelling and of falling into line.
