I finished my fourth book for #booktubeathon today. This was the book I chose for "read about a character that is very different from you". Carly is such a strong character, and her life could not be more different from mine. Her parents were deported back to Mexico when she was only 14, and she and her brother have been working ever since to raise enough money to sneak their parents and their two younger siblings back into the country. I can't even imagine what that would be like
I thought I was definitely NOT a graphic novel reader, but @cecebellbooks graphic novel may have converted me! Full confession--one of my favorite people in the whole world, @bekahboo52 , has a similar story. 😊
What I liked:
-The humor is subtle, but spot on.
-This will resonate with ALL kids, not just the hearing impaired.
-It is a simple, straightforward, autobiographical account of some of the toughest years for kids, and it is told with humor and grace.
What I didn't like:
-There was really nothing that I didn't like. I just wanted to know more! Can I get an El Deafo part 2?! Full review on the blog! Link in bio.
When I watched Thirteen Reasons Why on @netflix I thought it was so well done and just loved it so much that I knew I had to read the book as well. I also have been looking for more books to read because I absolutely love reading and when I was going through so much the past 5 years I sort of stopped doing everything I loved especially the last 3 years since I wasn’t even allowed to do anything being in such a controlling relationship. Anyway, I have been stalking this book All The Bright Places for awhile and finally bought it tonight. Plus I didn’t know it was going to be a movie which makes me even more excited to read it before the movie comes out. I’m so excited for both of these books! I’m sure I won’t be able to put either of them down. @netflix@jayasher13@jenniferniven#bookstagram#bookworm#booklover#reading#doingthingsilove#jayasher#thirteenreasonswhy#jenniferniven#allthebrightplaces#newyorktimesbestseller
