Review: We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

28243032

You go through life thinking there’s so much you need…

Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.

Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend, Mabel. But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she’s tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit, and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.

Happy Saturday, lovelies!

I’m finally back with a little mini review of Nina LaCours “We Are Okay”. Phew, I’m not, by the way, , maybe semi-okay. In a good way though!
My friends have been talking about it for months and I’ve finally got around to read it. Before we start, let’s appreciate the cover a bit more. I’m so in love with the design, I don’t actually want to give back the copy I borrowed. So I’m going to keep it for a bit longer and admire the view, and probably reread it again.*

May Wrap Up

Hello lovelies!

This month has been kinda quiet here. As soon as I can wrap my head around it,  I will (hopefully) be posting mini-reviews on these books. I’m also thinking of giving this blog a makeover as soon as I have more time. I’m not going to bore you with the usual excuses, you know them as well as I do, so let’s just jump right into the wrap up:

Goodreads; Review will be up soon
My rating: ★★★★★

One of two books my friend C sent me after gushing about it for months. The MC’s anxiety made me feel anxious in the beginning but thankfully I got used to it and it didn’t bother me much later. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it is now one of my favorite lgbt contemporaries

 

 

33961635#2 Ein bisschen wie Unendlichkeit by Harriet Reuter-Hapgood [The Square Root of Summer]
Goodreads; Review will be up soon
My rating: ★★★★

The second book that was recommended to me and also the German translation for once. I was surprised that I got so easily accustomed to reading German again, since I’ve only been reading books in English for years. The book was quite entertaining plot-wise. I loved those science bits and pieces, although I wasn’t really a fan of the time-travel thing? I could not wrap my head around it and had some musings of what they really mean on my own and it didn’t quite match up.
