The Book Cookies

My name is Taylor and I'm an avid reader, as well as an aspiring author! I love cookies (obviously) and fantasy is my favorite genre (I usually review YA novels). Book reviews usually take 1-7 days to write, depending on the book.
I'll Give You the Sun - Jandy Nelson

"Remake the world."

This book was an amazing read. Although at first I was annoyed by the artistic metaphors (more on that later), I got used to it and learned to love the writing style; there were hilarious parts that I will never forget because I laughed so hard and parts where I felt a tightening in my stomach because I could really feel for these characters. After I finished this book, I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time because I loved this book so much. Overall, really good book.

The Writing Style
Personally, I actually really like this metaphorical writing style Jandy Nelson has going on, but if you're not a fan of that sort of thing, I highly suggest that you step away from this book unless you're willing to push through it. The metaphors aren't constant, but they do appear a lot.
