Serie: Denton Little #1
Denton Little's Deathdate takes place in a world exactly like our own except that everyone knows the day they will die. For 17-year-old Denton Little, that's tomorrow, the day of his senior prom.
Despite his early deathdate, Denton has always wanted to live a normal life, but his final days are filled with dramatic firsts. First hangover. First sex. First love triangle (as the first sex seems to have happened not with his adoring girlfriend, but with his best friend's hostile sister. Though he's not totally sure. See: first hangover.) His anxiety builds when he discovers a strange purple rash making its way up his body. Is this what will kill him? And then a strange man shows up at his funeral, claiming to have known Denton's long-deceased mother, and warning him to beware of suspicious government characters…. Suddenly Denton's life is filled with mysterious questions and precious little time to find the answers.
Den här boken köpte jag mest av en händelse när jag var i London, och jag hade därför inga särskilda förväntningar när jag väl började att läsa den. Vad jag fann var att den var väldigt rolig, men samtidigt kunde den vara lite för mycket emellanåt. Jag gillade handlingen och karaktärerna, och boken slutade i en riktig cliffhanger. Trots det är jag osäker på om jag vill läsa fortsättningen eller ej, men i det stora hela så var Denton Little's Deathdate ändå en bok jag gillade.

Titel: Emmy & Oliver
Författare: Robin Benway
Emmy just wants to be in charge of her own life.
She wants to stay out late, surf her favorite beach—go anywhere without her parents’ relentless worrying. But Emmy’s parents can’t seem to let her grow up—not since the day Oliver disappeared.
Oliver needs a moment to figure out his heart.
He’d thought, all these years, that his dad was the good guy. He never knew that it was his father who kidnapped him and kept him on the run. Discovering it, and finding himself returned to his old hometown, all at once, has his heart racing and his thoughts swirling.
Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. In Emmy’s soul, despite the space and time between them, their connection has never been severed. But is their story still written in the stars? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?
Jag har försökt att skriva den här recensionen i flera dagar nu, men orden vill sig inte riktigt. Så jag tänker bara säga att Emmy & Oliver är en av de finaste böckerna jag någonsin läst, och jag rekommenderar den till absolut alla.
