Book Club: All The Bright Places

Hi Lovelies

Welcome to Book Club! This week I’ll be reviewing the book All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. Spoiler Alert: I liked it!

Here we go!

She learned to live from a boy who wanted to die.

This tells the story of Theodore Finch, who is fascinated by death. And Violet Markey , who lost her sister in an accident that she survived.

I rated it 5 well deserved stars on Goodreads! It was so breath-taking. I completely lost myself in the story.

The book is written in 2 pov’s, which gives you more inside in the characters, their lives and individual backgrounds. This is a reason why you really get them and know why they do what they do.

I laughed, I cried, I sat at the tip of my chair wanting to know more. It will make you feel happy, yet sad.

I can honestly say this story changed me. It really pulled me out of my own head space and put thing in perspective.

It made me space out of my own world and I read for hour straight (I was in exam period, so not really a good thing to spend all day reading anything else than your syllabus, but I couldn’t stop).

I liked that the story focusses on mental health and psychological consequences to situations. Since this is something that has a lot of influence on people, from teens to adults.

I read that some people thought that this book was too predictable, but let’s be honest 90% of all book are predictable. So maybe it was, but I was genuinely surprised with the story, but maybe that me I wouldn’t know.

Final Thoughts

What else is there to say? Oh… buy, borrow, download, steal it, you need to read it NOW!

I crowned it my favorite book of the year (so far).

No doubt, I stand 100% behind my recommendation of this book!

Have you read it? What did you think?

  1. I love love love when you can completely lose yourself in a book! That alone will make me buy a copy! Thank you for sharing babe

  2. Oh sounds like an awesome story to get lost in. I could use one of those right about now. I’ve never heard of this one but would love to give it a read. Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. I haven’t read the book. But, I like the topic. A girl who learned to live from a boy who wanted to death. It looks like there are some good life lessons on that book. I can’t say I am fascinated by death, but I delve into it sometimes. What can I say? Pluto, the God of the Underworld, is one of my ruling planets. You can read my post “Why You Need To Write Your Own Obituary” to see what I mean ?

    Herlina –

    1. The main theme is is mental health, but the way it is approached is like I’ve never seen before. Because of the learning to live through death

  4. I just finished a great novel–A Gentleman in Moscow–so this recommendation comes at a great time. When someone says a book was life-changing, I am all ears. I am interested in mental health, so I look forward to this read. Thanks!
