The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

The husband's secret Welcome to another book-review for the Twisted Book Club! You can read the previous discussed book All the Bright Places here. This time I will review The Husband’s Secret written by Liane Moriarty. It is the first book I’ve read written by Liane Moriarty. I read the summary, and was pretty much convinced. Also, I was very curious as to what a husband could possibly write to his wife in a letter to be opened after his death. Are you curious too? Read further and start reading the book! Enjoy this review.

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Another book review for the Twisted Book Club! Last time, I reviewed Into the Water. This time, I read All the Bright Places written by Jennifer Niven (trigger warning: mentions of suicide). All the Bright Places is written from two perspectives. On one hand, you have Theodore Finch and on the other hand you have Violet Markey. They are both teenagers in High school somewhere in Indiana. The two actually meet by chance. Throughout the book Violet is struggling with guilt and remembering the car accident that killed her sister. While, Finch is struggling with his mental illness and his problems at home. Want to know my opinion? Keep on reading 🙂

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Welcome again to a new book-review for the Twisted Book Club! Last time, I did an in-depth review on All American Boys which I consider an important read. This time, I actually wanted to read The Girl on the Train, but was drawn to Into the Water instead. When reading the synopsis, I thought this would be some scary town where all the women would be slowly slaughtered, just for being born a girl. Thank God, it was nothing super scary though. However, the book was very suspenseful, at times I could not even breathe. I just needed to continue reading, I just needed to know what the hell happened. I already heard a lot about The Girl on the Train, so therefore I undoubtedly started reading Into the Water. Let’s get into it!  (more…)

All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely

All American Boys by Jason Reynolds & Brendan KielyIn my New Year’s resolutions, I mentioned starting the Twisted Book Club where I will dedicate blogposts to books I have read, just like I did on Nayyira Waheed’s Nejma and Salt. The first book is an important book I want to share with you guys. The book I’m talking about is (drumroll please) … All American Boys written by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely. All American Boys alternates between the perspectives of two ‘All American Boys’, Rashad and Quinn. They are both 16-years old and go to a pre-military high school called ROTC. Rashad Butler is African-American and Quinn Collins is white and they both play basketball in the same team.

Salt. by Nayyirah Waheed

salt

In this post, I want to share an amazing writer whom I have been crushing on since I read her first poems on Tumblr. Her name is Nayyirah Waheed. Nayyirah Waheed is an American based writer that uses poetry as her medium of self-expression. She writes about love, honey, womanism and racism. Nayyirah Waheed has published two books with her poetry. Salt. was published in 2013, and in 2014 Nejma was published. I am a very proud owner of both, and I cannot thank Nayyirah enough for putting certain things into words that could not have been described otherwise. Below, I will share some of her poetry from Salt. I promise to dedicate next post to Nejma. You have to understand that Nayyirah Waheed’s writing is so deep, and sometimes it feels like she is talking about you, she is telling our stories. That is why I have decided to dedicate two posts to her writing.
