these new gay releases Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestDNF p29This is too blech for me The characters read as being much older than they actually are and itas that aggressively snarky and twee vibe that made me dislike RED WHITE ROYAL BLUE so much I think this will appeal to fans of Casey Mcuiston and other YA and NA age books in that vein but something about those MM books feels kind of inauthentic to me and lately I find myself reaching for the ownvoices ones and I m definitely not the target audience for this book and maybe the Tumblr I m so much smarter than you vibe will appeal to the kiddos but I found it boring exhausting and just not very engagingIt s a shame because I do love the epistolary format Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an On Hitler's Mountain Overcoming the Legacy of a Nazi Childhood PS honest review 15 stars We ve all come across a book so wonderful you re utterly transfixed and absorbed in every possible way Those few moments you look up from the pages are done so with dreary eyes reality seems secondary to what you ve just experienced We Contain Multitudes is beautiful in its simplicity We are shown a love story between two boys their journey ofeart and ealing through letters When Jonathan Hopkirk and Adam Kurlansky are paired up for a class writing assignment they didn t know what to expect Jonathan enjoys poetry and doesn t ave any friends in school Adam is a football star though I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad he prefers to avoid socializing with other students Through weekly letters to each other the boys begin finding friendship amidst their differences Eventually things blossom into love and the two are determined to find peace in a life that wants nothing but chaos for themTold through solely Adam and Jonathan s letters to each other We Contain Multitudes was a truly intriguing book I was immediately drawn to both main characters as they eachad such a distinct uniue voice The story flowed perfectly nothing felt too fast paced or slowed down It got to the point where I d Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe meets I'll Give You the Sun in an exhilarating and emotional novel about the growing relationship between two teen boys told through the letters they write to one anotherJonathan Hopkirk and Adam Kurl Ku.Another with such passion and thoughtfulness Not in the beginning since it takes a bit of time for Jo and Kurl to trust each other but watching their relationship develop warmed my eart Then broke it of course This is one of those books that are unuestionably bittersweet You love them but you also Lonestar Sanctuary hate them because of what they ve done to you Yet you know that you are betteraving read them as you Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator have learned from them and theyave potentially Understanding the Black Economy and Black Money in India helped you become a better person I am ready to remember this story for the rest of my life despite all theurt in it I shouldn t scare anyone It s beautiful too I read it in two sittings and that for me does not Desperate (Bad Baker Boys, happen with a book that drains me completely emotionally In conclusion you will survive it too and see the beauty in it Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin DNF at 90 pagesThe problem with a 100% epistolary novel is when your protagonists exist in the same space in this case aigh school and you want them "to ave dialogue and face to face interactions So you decide to " have dialogue and face to face interactions So you decide to the penpals literally recounting situations the other was present for When you brought in the groceries you said this she said that this appened next it makes no actual fucking sense to write a letter to someone this way The person was there I don t want someone giving me a play by play on my life That s obnoxious And the author clearly knew this because she covered A Small C Compiler Language Usage Theory and Design her ass by saying I know this is weird but I like breaking the conversation and events down to explore it uh no These are sixteenseventeen year old boys tasked with an English assignment and to begin with they are writing than they should You ve already stretched the boundaries of my disbelief I can t buy into this other instant replay nonsenseSo instead I spoiled myself on the events of the book by reading some reviews got mad some and thusere I am giving upIf it wasn t against my personal policy to not rate books I ve read less than How Drawings Work half of this wouldave a one star up thereNope nope I received an ARC from the publisher thank you in exchange for an Truly Irresistible honest review Many thanks to Little Brown Books for Young Readers for sending me a copy in exchange for anonest reviewI went into this expecting romance And it didn t come Sure there were two boys who were talking back and forth but there was absolutely no chemistry and I really didn t connect with either main character I actually disliked them both Sure I did DNF this so maybe it DID get better I seriously doubt it but still But what I read was not enjoyableI also Whisper Loudly had aard time with the fact a straight woman was writing a gay romance Listen I m open for authors attempting to represent voices outside of their own but when they do that they NEED to check for accuracy And it felt like the author just didn tThe main characters felt like cardboard stereotypes There wasn t any creativity Overall what i read was boring and unromantic that I read was boring and unromantic That I ve I've Been Thinking . . .: Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life heard it gets Audio 5 STARSStory 45 STARSWow What an incredible journey We Contain Multitudes is the story of two boys who couldn t be different Kurl the popular jock who s repeatingis last year of Dragon Ball Z Cycle 2 T03 high school and Jonathan the outcast sopho who deals with bullies everydayI know what you re thinking that this is a bit of a clich But wow Sarah Henstra easily skirted that pitfall by digging DEEP The title is incredibly aptere as both Jonathan and Kurl are stripped back layer by layer and revealed through the letters they must write to each other for an English project as in The entire book is written in the form of letters this was both its genius and its weakness in my opinion The initial stages of Kurl and Jonathan s relationship were done in a way that was nothing short of brilliant Since I imagine that not The Never-Ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip & having to face a person would make opening up to them much easier the way they both came out of their shells was wonderfully believableBut once things became involved I didn t uite appreciate the letters as much I wanted to be there during the pivotal moments inside theireads where I d be able to get a better The Bible in the lyrics of Bob Dylan The Wanted Man study series handle on the why s andow s of it all There were times that their thoughts came across as too wise for their ages and times that their actions or lack of them felt out of character However I would never want to discourage you from taking this journey with Kurl and Jonathan And the audio performances were incredible I The Saga of Tanya the Evil, Vol. 4 (light novel) highly recommendPS The story became unexpectedly dark in places so I ll issue some trigger warnings view spoilerphysical and emotional abuse violence
