Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira

This was one of the recommendations that came up for I Felt A Funeral, In My Brain by Will Walton on my library site. Oh, and can I say how much I overuse that system? I am always looking for books and looking at the recs. But yes, this book is about a girl named Laurel who has lost her older sister May. She’s started her first year of high school and her teacher gives her an assignment to write a letter to a famous figure.

I really like the narrative and I think Laurel is an intriguing protagonist. She reminds me of myself at that age. I definitely can relate to her.

Lovely War by Julie Berry

This was a great book. There was not one, not two, but three happy endings. I hope I’m not giving anything away, but it was a lovely book. I enjoyed my experience reading it. I did feel like the secondary couple’s relationship was underdeveloped compared to the primary couple, but I guess that’s to be expected.

To Read Next

History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

This was another one of the recommendations for I Felt A Funeral, In My Brain. I’m looking forward to reading it. I know it’s about a boy grieving his partner and grief is a topic I’ve been very interested in since my grandmother died. I even made a list of books that deal with grief. Morbid much?

Last of Her Name by Jessica Khoury

This is an Anastasia retelling in space. I have been waiting for this book since I found out about it. But get this, I found out like last week that this is not the only Anastasia retelling in space. There is another one and of course, I checked that one out as well, but I’m really excited to read this one!

The premise is simple. There are 3 Ws:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Let’s jump in shall we?

Lovely War by Julie Berry

I admit I first picked up this book because of the cover. Look at it’s just beautiful isn’t it. But I read the inside flap and the mention of the gods got my attention. So far Aphrodite, Ares, Hephaestus, Apollo, and Hades have shown up, but I’m really hoping for Persephone lol. I think it’s unlikely though since Hades is already there (and dressed like a priest!)

I Felt A Funeral, In My Brain by Will Walton

I picked this book up because of the title duh. It caught my attention immediately and then I read the inside flap and that convinced me to check it out. The book is very fast paced. It has poetry and prose and a nonlinear narrative, which was strange for me at first, but I really ended up liking it.

To Be Read

Sister of Mine by Laurie Petrou

This was one of the first books I saw when I entered the library. The title caught my attention and the premise appealed to me. I haven’t really read any thrillers, but I want to (especially Gone Girl) so maybe this will be a good introduction to the genre.
