We were all heading for each other on a collision course, no matter what. Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story. At first, Jude and her twin brother Noah, are inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them. Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor. The early years are Noahs to tell; the later years are Judes. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, theyll have a chance to remake their world. This radiant, award-winning novel from the acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughingoften all at once. Printz Award Winner Stonewall Honor Book...

nah man, that's easy for you to say.
I'm sitting here debating whether I should give up on writing this entire review and instead type: shfjdsfhdkjshskjghjsfhdsjf i rather live as an apple bye.
but no, i'm forcing myself to put some effort. I can't be a procrastinator forever.
if i was the president of a country, i would totally make everyone read this book. This book is absolute perfection and feels like a personal ass ...more
I think I’ve just read one of the most beautiful books ever written.
I had no idea how much I needed this book in my life, right now. But I’m so glad it found its way to me. I felt understood, like this book knew who I was and had this story in stock just for me.
I’m a miserable mess right now, I don’t even know if I’ll ever be able to write a proper review one day, it seems so impossible to put all my thoughts in order.
I felt an immediate connection with Noah. We’re both the younger sibling who l ...more
This book should be called I'll Give You Death by Artistic Metaphor. It seems like I'm in the minority on this one, but I did not like the writing style at all.
I guess it should be noted that I was also not a fan of the author's first novel - The Sky is Everywhere - which everyone but heartless little me seemed to love. Unlike many people I know, I picked this one up because the premise intrigued me and not because of a love for the author's previous work.
You may be thinking: this is a poetic no ...more
I’ll Give You the Sun is different than any other book I’ve read. The writing style (it was lyrical to me), the story line, that themes, the characters, they were all excellent. There were a few things that I didn’t love, but overall it was a memorable and brilliant story that deserves 5 stars. Also, I listened to the audio version of this one and the narration was fantastic.
Twins Jude and Noah are both artists. So is their mother. This story is written in dual POV, from past to presen ...more
Review originally posted at Mostly YA Lit
I don't think I can properly review this book without just throwing flails and gifs and barbaric yawps into the air. It's that lovely, that exquisite that any review I write will just pale in comparison to the writing in the book. That said...I want you to read this book, so I have to try.
P.S. I borrowed all the quote gifs from Penguin Teen, because who doesn't want to see more of that gorgeous cover?!
I'll Give You The Sun is probably the most literar ...more
I've read this book for the third time now and it is still as magical as ever. My heart was aching and floating whilst I was reading it. I cannot put into words what and how this book makes me feel! I can never get enough of it. Slice of heaven of a book if there ever was one.
My heart. Words will fail me. This book did something to my soul. My heart exploded about a hundred times whilst reading it and I cannot express how much I loved it! How much I'll continue to love it. It w ...more
Has anyone ever finished a book and just sat there for a while like, “what did this author just do to me?”
Finishing this book was the most surreal emotion. It was like being stranded in the middle of a hazy daydream, laughing, sun-soaked and shivering, with flowers blooming in your heart. I had this sudden outburst of motivation to bake something, or go for a walk, or make a fragile human connection with some stranger in the vast and unfeeling infinity of this universe. I was in love, not with a ...more
