The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. I’m going to pick my biggest unpopular opinion EVER lol. I’m glad that so many people enjoyed it, though, but it wasn’t for me AT ALL. I read less than 50% of it, and I really don’t like anything, I don’t want to go into details about why I didn’t like it all over again, but basically, I find it very problematic and contains some rather unfortunate phrases with discriminatory content. If you want to know more about my thoughts on this one, you can check out my full review

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. This is one of my favorite books of all time. There are still times when I think about it and makes me smile, it’s a beautiful story, which in fact, I think is perfect for this promp because talks a lot about the meaning of love, love in all its forms, support, growth, and friendship. It’s wonderful and I recommend it a lot if you haven’t read it yet.
Even now, I’m smiling like a fool as I write this because I LOVE it so much, and it’s such a unique and wonderful experience, I can not!. It’s also a 100% diverse reading, so if it’s something you’re looking for, this one is the perfect option

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. I mean more the series in its entirety. First, I want to tell you that I LOVE this series, in fact, it’s one of my favorites, the third book is just perfect for me, but I’ve been discovering every time I started with one of these books I always had the same experience, at the beginning it was very difficult for me to be able to commit myself to the story, it’s a bit heavy at times, and the plot is a bit complicated and complex, so you have to be 100% into the book to not miss anything and be able to understand everything. It’s because of this that I’ve had to have patience with these books but I always end up loving them. It’s a very magical and whimsical series. I would personally recommend it because I liked it, but I’m aware that it’s not a plot for everyone, although the characters are wonderful ALWAYS

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I LOVE this book SO MUCH, a while ago I didn’t mention it in the blog, so here it is, in all its splendor, READ IT!.
I take this promp as a book that has made me suffer or cry, and this book has made me feel all that and more. Evelyn’s story has all the condiments that are needed to create a perfect and real story of love, betrayal, pain, loss, family, and glory. It’s SO amazing.
There are some VERY hard scenes for me in the book, I can’t mention any of it because spoilers, but they made me cry a lot, I got attached to the characters and I felt Evelyn’s story as a real thing and that made me go through many feelings, and although it’s a sad story, on the one hand, it is also wonderful, on the other.

The Selection (The Selection #1) by Kiera Cass. OMG, this is a very specific promp, but I think this book fits well for it. I feel that everyone has had that stage when you love and you’re trash for this type of books, I know even when you don’t want to admit it lol.
I adored all this trilogy when I read it, but it was SO long ago that I feel that now that I think of it, wasn’t as good as I thought, but I feel it’s part of the growth as a reader, to find your tastes inside the readings and keep growing and changing with it.
At that time, I must confess that I loved, love triangles and dystopian worlds, it was like the best thing at that moment, so this book had everything I needed. But well, today I don’t think I would read something like that since I’m not interested in the same things.
Something I learned from it? Maybe in a certain way, it was a before and after in my tastes for books, it was like a hinge and then I started reading different things. I think I learned that this isn’t what I really like, and today I can see that many things that happened in this book are absurd, but hey, it was fun then. *accepting my past*

Scythe (Arc of a Scythe #1) by Neal Shusterman. I’ve been having INCREDIBLE readings this month, I’m very happy with it, but right now I’m picking this one because it’s so unique and incredible, I can’t stop thinking about it and the sequel will be great, I can feel it!. I also love talking with you about it in the comments and on Twitter, it’s super fun, and see that most of you have enjoyed it as well, makes me happy, finally, I’m on the good side of a popular book lol

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. I would choose Radio Silence but I don’t want to repeat myself so I’ll go for this beautiful and hopeful book.
I really feel that I read this book exactly when I needed it and it has influenced me in many ways and all positive and growing. It talks a lot about family and that was what touched my soul the most and made me reflect a lot on personal issues. It’s also an extremely real and beautiful book about brotherhood and what it means to grow and accept ourselves. Also talks a lot about second chances and fate, and that means a lot to me.
I want to cry every time I think about this book, I LOVE IT SO MUCH!
While Radio Silence touch me more on the relationship side, this one has touched me a lot on the family side
