Okay, so here goes. They Both Die at the End is one of my favourite books of the year, if not one of my all-time favourites. I’m obsessed with everything Adam Silvera writes — and does — so there was never any question as to whether I’d pick up his latest novel. The first book I read by him was History is All You Left Me, which was released earlier this year, and then I proceeded to read More Happy Than Not. Both were phenomenal, to say the least.

I don’t know if this review is going to be able to encapsulate all my thoughts and feelings about They Both Die at the End, simply because I have a lot of them. Plus, I’m struggling to put them into words that accurately describe my emotions. I cried when I first touched a copy of this book, when I read the introduction by Adam Silvera, and all the way through. I was just one great big sobbing mess throughout, and I don’t apologise for that. I do, however, kind of hate Adam Silerva. Me being a blubbering mess and in a book hangover for a month afterwards was all his fault.Read More »
