The Things She’s Seen (published as Catching Teller Crow in other countries) by Ambelin Kwaymullina and Ezekiel Kwaymullina is one of the greatest books I’ve ever read and I only bought it because it was on sale at Barnes & Noble. I haven’t seen anyone on Book Twitter or Bookstagram talking about this book and I want to scream at everyone to read it. GO READ IT!
I’m reading a non-fiction book right now about “invisible illnesses” and it’s really interesting. In particular, these first chapters are talking about the author’s experience with being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease. The book is The Invisible Kingdom by Meghan O’Rourke. Another book that has great disability representation from an ownvoices author is The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang.
This is so difficult because when I reread The Hunger Games trilogy, I re-fell in love with Peeta Mellark, but I also will always have a soft spot for Ronan Lynch from The Raven Cycle and The Dreamers Trilogy. I’d have to say they’re probably tied for different reasons.
Samantha Wishaw from the Hedgehog Hollow series is such a lovely person. She is kind to everyone she encounters, regardless of how they treat her in return. I’ve read the first two books in the series and it’s just devastating how rude her mother is to her considering how great of a person she is.
There are so many friendship dynamics that I love! Recently, I read A Brush with Love by Mazey Eddings and the main character’s best friend, Thu, was an absolute joy. I would love to have a friend like that.
I’m trying to think about books that I’ve read that have a giant party in them and I’m coming up blank lol. I’ll go with Alex Claremont-Diaz from Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston because he’s such an idiot and I love him so much. He would 100% cause a bunch of drama at a party and I’d be there laughing and eating my popcorn.
I love the squad from The Raven Cycle but I also absolutely love the squad from the Truly Devious Series and since I’ve already named people from The Raven Cycle in this tag, I’ll go with the Truly Devious Series. That group of friends are both different and similar in so many ways and I really like how they bounce their energies off of each other.
