You can't stop the future.

You can't rewind the past.

The only way to learn the secret is to press play.

Clay Jensen returns home to find a strange package with his name on it. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker – his classmate and first love – who committed suicide two weeks earlier.
Hannah's voice explains there are thirteen reasons why she killed herself. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why.

All through the night, Clay keeps listening – and what he discovers changes his life... forever.

Or maybe I wanted someone to point a finger at me and say, “Hannah. Are you thinking about killing yourself? Please don’t do that, Hannah. Please?”

I JUST. I mean, I knew this book was gonna be sad. Heck, that was prolly one of the many reasons why I bought this book. BUT shit. kasfadfaskjldb.

My heart will never be the same.

Imagine receiving a bunch of recordings from the girl you loved (who killed herself, btw), and then hearing her say that those that received these tapes are indirectly/directly one of the reasons why she killed herself. Damn. I dived into this book wanting to know exactly why Clay Jensen was on that list when he was the perfect guy ever.

All I have to say is that: Everybody in this book deserved to be in this book. View Spoiler »

This book was written from only Clay’s point of view, in which we get to actually see what he was thinking, and I could pretty much say that I had the same thoughts he had. Throughout half the book I was like, what did Clay do???? and pretty much figured it out half way through because like I said, we get to see what he was thinking and yeah. HAHAHA I’m not good at explaining this without giving away spoilers.

What I definitely loved about this book was the tapes. Hannah’s voice was the main reason that this book is so good. We get to see her go from trying to hold on, to slowly letting go and my God, it was so damn heartbreaking that I was sobbing my heart out by the time I finished reading this book.

I just wanted to point out that as a person who has gone through depression and even attempted suicide, there IS a reason. There will always be reasons, and for those saying that this book wasn’t realistic because it blamed so many people over one person’s death, that’s the thing, yknow? We all live our lives without knowing that sometimes the smallest things can create a chain of reactions, and this book shows it. This book showed that maybe, just maybe we did contribute to someone’s suicide, indirectly. Ya know? Read this y’all. The world needs to be nicer and this book is SO GOOD and you guys need to read this.

The Possibility of Somewhere was everything that I have always wanted in a book. It deals with racism and prejudice and oh my God, I cried so damn hard! SERIOUSLY, THIS BOOK IS REALLY GOOD I read it in one sitting. It was heartbreaking and yes, I knew I would cry before this book even reached its climax, because I could feel the emotions. The sadness, the joy, the heartbreaks, I could feel them all. I was emotionally invested in the characters, especially Eden. Eden was strong and modest in her own way. She always thinks the worst of herself […]

OH. MY. GOD. NO, seriously, Oh my God. If you have not read Me Before You, then I highly suggest that you stop reading my review this instant, because this review will contain spoilers about Me Before You.

Until I read this book, the book AFTER WILL’S DEATH, and I’m just there like NOPE. JUST. OMG. I mean, I never thought that I needed a sequel after […]

This book left me in pieces. (HAHA did you see what I did there? Girl in Pieces? Left me in pieces? Okay, I’m lame.) But truly, this book tore me up and it took me awhile to recover from it. In fact, I wrote this review 385 days after reading this book, because I was seriously invested in it. This book is mine. This book is all me, and I can relate to it, and this is me. Get it? No? HAHA I’m sorry. Girl In Pieces was about a girl who went through so much that she’s broken. And it took […]
