Just One Book

This month I've only read one book, but it was a good one. I read All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.


I've had this book in my reading list for ages, ever since Zoella first mentioned it in her June favourites video in 2015. I was attracted by the cover and the title and really curious about the plot.

When I started reading it I was captured by it, and I read it quite quickly. I found it very well written and deep. I loved the characters and the themes that were touched by the author (mental health, death, suicide, seek of one's own path in life...). I was also happy to find out that the sticky notes, birds and flowers on the cover had a meaning in the story and were not only some sort of decoration.

Being a big John Green fan, I found this story to be some sort of mix between Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns and The Fault in Our Stars, but I absolutely mean it in a good way. I do not think that the author stole someone else's ideas and I do not want to take anything away from her ability to create, because I believe she's brilliant and I'd like to read more of her books, I just think that the topics and deep characters somehow recall John Green's ones. I strongly suggest that you read both John Green's books and Jennifer Niven's anyway, because they are all definitely worth reading.
