GOODREADS SUMMARY

This innovative, heartfelt debut novel tells the story of a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world. When a new family moves in next door, she begins a complicated romance that challenges everything she’s ever known. The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.

Fab 5 Friday: Top 5 Book Boyfriends

Fab 5 Friday is a listography that I created inspired by the Top 5 Wednesday book group in Goodreads. It is basically the same thing where a topic is chosen for everyday of the month and 5 books will accompany the said topic. I hope to still carry on with Top 5 Wednesday while thinking up new topics for my new Friday brain child. TGIF!

For this week’s Fab Five Friday, I want to share with you this post about all the boys I’ve fallen in love with in YA. I excitedly compiled all these photos and characters for you because I swear with all my heart, my top book boyfies are the men you dream about!

KAIDAN ROWE of The Sweet Trilogy is one of my greatest contenders for my best book boyfie. I love him not because he’s a cocky prick at the start of this series but because he was brave enough to go against his demon father and even risk his life just to protect Anna. If that’s not true love then I don’t know what is. Know more about my love for this series and Kaidan Rowe on my recent Waiting on Wednesday’s post!

Fab 5 Friday: Graphic Novels I NEED TO READ

This Friday’s topic is Graphic novels I really want to get into. Graphic novels have recently been the talk of the town in booktube and interestingly enough, it is a medium I have never picked up before. I remember the first time I encountered it with the Twilight graphic novel and I was just never curious enough about it. Now, more and more graphic novels have been receiving a lot of attention and I think it’s time I picked some up too! Read on for the full list of graphic novels I want SO BADLY to read:

FIRST FAB 5 FRIDAY: Books I should have read by now

Fab 5 Friday is a listography that I created inspired by the Top 5 Wednesday book group in Goodreads. It is basically the same thing where a topic is chosen for everyday of the month and 5 books will accompany the said topic. I hope to still carry on with Top 5 Wednesday while thinking up new topics for my new Friday brain child.

This Friday’s topic is books that I should have read by now: Books that were required sometime in high school or in college but I never got around to reading. I’m very ashamed to admit that a lot of readings I was supposed to have finished in the past, I haven’t yet and I think it’s time that I finally do. Read on for the full list:
