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.

    Me: *lies down on bed*

    Me: *holds book close to heart*

    Me: *curls up and whispers “this book” over and over again*

    What a perfect book to start 2018 with.

    I haven't written a complete review in over 3 months probably, simply because I wasn't feeling motivated enough. However, this book? This book's sheer awesomeness made me want to write a full one, because that's what it deserves! Ignore the fact that it'll be a crappy one; I can't write reviews anymore okay? Plus, I'm so in love with this book I c

    “It’s time for second chances. It’s time to remake the world.”


    The twins were basically inseparable; however, as the blurb states, tragedy hits, and they barely speak anymore. We see that clearly. Each one of them is conflicted and scared in their own way. Each of them has their own secrets, and slowly finding out all about them was just great. Seeing how the plot unraveled? Spectacular! At one point of the book I was questioning where this book was headed and then suddenly it all started coming together and things were revealed and my heart started breaking because I was feeling all the pain my babies Jude and Noah were feeling.

    “In one split second I saw everything I could be, everything I want to be. And all that I’m not.”


    The writing was weird. Yet beautiful. At first I was confused; not the type of confused where you don't understand anything, because as weird as it was, you understand everything clearly. But it was weird in the sense that I've rarely read books with that writing style. I can't explain further what weird actually means in that context, you just have to find out for yourself! Gosh, as weird as it was, I fell in love with it. It took me a bit to get used to it, but once I did, I was appreciating it a lot. My tiny problem with this book was the chapters. I think the entire 429 page book is made up of 6 chapters give and take. The chapters were humongous!! The chapters alternate between Jude and Noah, whereby Noah narrates at 13-13.5 years old and Jude narrated at age 16. And every single chapter ends in a cliffhanger and it would shift to the other twin and I'd have to wait 50+ pages to find out what happened next.

    “Or maybe a person is just made up of a lot of people,” I say. “Maybe we’re accumulating these new selves all the time.” Hauling them in as we make choices, good and bad, as we screw up, step up, lose our minds, find our minds, fall apart, fall in love, as we grieve, grow, retreat from the world, dive into the world, as we make things, as we break things.”


    I don't know you guys, I feel like I need to say more about it? Like there's so much depth to this book, depth which I personally find hard to portray justly with words. Such as the complex family dynamics of Jude and Noah's family, the relationships each of Jude and Noah have with their significant others, the problems each of them go through, the strength each of them find, the importance of art for them... so much more!! I think each and every one of us will appreciate it and relate to it differently and that's the beauty of it.

    “I didn’t know you could get buried in your own silence.”


    My friends, when you are in the mood for a good contemporary, let it be this book!

    Read this for my first ever 24-Hour Readathon and what a beautiful, wise decision it was. ...more

    Finished my first book for the BookTube-a-Thon!

    This was definitely one of my favorites of the year.

    I honestly love everything about it. The writing was so beautiful... The way it switched between young Noah and older Jude's perspectives. The love stories, the art. Literally everything. Read this book. It's so beautiful and now I just want to read every single thing by this author.

  • Brian Yahn

    One of the best books I've read in a long long time, I'll Give You the Sun, gave me the chills, gave me a heart attack, gave me everything I ever wanted from a love story.

    (Self-portrait: boy in love with a book)

    The narrators have such fun voices, the writing and use of artistic metaphors is beautiful, and the pacing is amazing. Pretty much everything about this book is perfect. It's essentially Gone Girl meets Romeo and Juliet. The characters connect so cohesively with their incredibly dark-twis

    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.

    Alright

    LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH. IT MOVED ME SO MUCH IN SO MANY WAYS <3

    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?!

    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

    what is this book about?


    I had a very faint idea of what this book was about prior to reading it and I am almost loathe to reveal too much about it. But I will say this: this book is essentially about art and people and people being art, their experiences a soft canvas of creases and bumps and hard knocks, each telling its own story, and their melancholy stained thoughts the equivalent of constellation-filled skies.

    It’s about Jude & Noah (twin siblings) whose lives have been drastically altered over the span of three years and the book alternates between their point of views: Noah at 13 yrs old and Jude at 16, a reflection of the resounding cleaving of before and after.

    There was something so incredibly authentic about this book. It was a million galaxies of emotions and introspections. The writing was very Sufjan Stevens... very poetry-and-melancholy-thoughts… very cotton-candy-and-waterfalls-of-tears... very petals-falling-from-rose-bushes. And it all manifested in how deeply flawed and undeniably human the characters were.

    I did not always like them and oftentimes I struggled to even understand them. But that's just how you know they've been humanized, in the way they were so fully fleshed and multidimensional.

    Noah & Jude were soft people with hearts like the seas, tides of volatile emotions, swimming through earthly life and unable to land. They see beauty in all ordinary things and whatever they decide to invest their time and love into always grows the size of Atlas. Their minds were a pandora crafted specifically for them, brimming with raw potential and overflowing with everything that blooms inside of them, doom and sorrow and so much art.

    “What is bad for the heart is good for art.”


    Yes, they sometimes let their jealous rampages govern them. Sometimes, they just do not listen well enough, they get enraged and jealous and spit their grief and inward disdain at the world and at each other. Sometimes, no matter how many times they tried to bury the ugliness inside, it didn't keep it from coming back alive, and it always showed in the way they took joy in pressing on parts of each other that are already bruised and sore from insecurities and self-doubt, like pouring saltwater into already gaping wounds.

    “A broken heart is an open heart.”


    They sometimes feel so small despite having so much courage, fire, energy, for many things. They both feel things so deeply and get so hurt, so wounded by small things. And oftentimes, they succumbed to their constant hesitance to trust others and each other for fear that if they let them in, they’ll see all the imperfections they often see in their reflection.

    And all of it spoke so deeply to me because I’ve seen so many slivers of myself in their feelings and actions and it wasn’t always easy. But to be fair, nothing about this book was easy.

    “I’m sick of being a coward. I’m sick of being on pause, of being buried and hidden, of being petrified, in both senses of the word.”


    The main takeaway from this book, I think, was that you are under no obligation to be the same person you were a year, a month, or even half an a hour ago. You have the right to change. You have the right to grow. You have the right to shed off your past selves. You are still growing and you have so much to learn. One mistake does not define your entire being and the mere fact that you recognize your flaws and push yourself to right your wrongs is outstanding.

    “Quick, make a wish.

    Take a (second or third or fourth) chance.

    Remake the world.”


    And also, your life is going to be periods of sadness and you can’t expect happiness to just jump into it overnight. You can’t cling onto the idea that once you achieve this or that, you’re going to unlock the secret to happiness, except  happiness has never been a fixed point in one’s life but is a multifaceted and elusive state. Happiness grows back slowly, it tiptoes so quietly towards you until eventually it’s walking by your side. You’ll survive. You might be confused, a distorted version of the person you used to be, all screwed up, but you will survive. Small victories count as victories.

    “I don’t want to imagine meadows, I want to run through them.”


    Now, onto the romance

    The part of me that actively enjoys being an asshole in mario kart is aggressively side-eyeing me right now but honestly fuck what I said last week, I changed my mind I want to be in love!!

    I am literally all about romantic clichés. I can no longer deny my true self. Throw them all in a book!! Throw all of them in my face!! Cover me in romanticized idealizations!! SMOTHER ME with them I guarantee I will be ecstatic!!

    There's two romantic relationships in this book: Noah & Brian who warmed the cold voids in my soul with their wholesomeness and cuteness and it makes my heart kind of sad because I can’t even hug them!!

    “I love you,” I say to him, only it comes out, “Hey.”

    “So damn much,” he says back, only it comes out, “Dude.”


    And then there's Jude & Oscar who bring me to this next point: I can’t believe that some people’s fate in this world is dating someone who knows all their good angles and want to take pretentious pictures of them looking gorgeous and ethereal all the time just for the sake of the aesthetics, furthermore I can’t believe I’m not in that squad!! (everyone I know just literally wants A level pictures of themselves taken while they're snapping pictures of me mid-sneeze and I want it documented somewhere that I deserve better)

    Both relationships were heavily centered around the concept of soulmates which is um, dubious at best. I mean, how lucky do two people really have to be for them to fall in love with each other at exactly the right time in exactly the right way???

    But I think in this book, it was more about the beauty and comfiness of two people who wholeheartedly understand each other, surpassing all points of recognition and oppeness and harboring so much tenderness towards each other and hoo boy, what is this strange sensation?? I think I’m smiling...  *pulls myself closer in the backseat of my rover*

    “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.”


    Overall, this book was an unexpected sweet treat from the universe and I truly adored it!! ...more

    this book is so complex, so poetic, so emotional, and so powerful. it's the kind of book i want to reread a million times, overanalyze, and cover the margins with notes. i felt every sentence's second meaning and it hit me really really hard. it made me feel SO MANY FEELINGS and i can't even pinpoint exactly why.

    i'll admit the first few pages were a bit rough. the writing is very different from what i'm used to; everything is a metaphor and i wasn't sure if this was literally happening or if it
