May 6, 2021 ‘They Both Die At The End’: Adam Silvera To Adapt His YA Novel As TV Series For eOne & Producer Drew Comins
Hellooooooooooo. So I just wanna say, this book is the best book I’ve ever read, if you want to cry. Seriously. I guess it took me weeks to recover from the heartbreak I suffered after I read this book. Not that I’m complaining though. I love books that make me cry. And I really love books with LGBTQ+ genre. Also, this is the first book in read by Adam Silvera, and avert this I sought out more books and read them. Right now I’m reading, History is all you left me (this book is great too!)
Also I’d love to recommend a series for y’all.
Read Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. It a series and it’s pretty much like the gay version of Harry Potter (I’m not critising Rainbow Rowell, this book is sooo damn good!)
The second book is Wayward Son and the third is Any Way The Wind Blows. The other LGBTQ+ I’d recommend are:
The Henna Wars, Six of Crows (a duology), Captive Prince (a series),The Song of Achilles and Red, White and Royal Blue
I just finished the book and i’m so wrecked. By FAR the best book i’ve ever read so far. I was balling my eyes out for a good hour. The ending was absolutely heartbreaking, and i don’t think ill EVER recover.
I’m listening to the 5 minutes of this audiobook. Such an amazing and heartwretching story
I meant: I’m listening to the *last* 5 minutes of this audiobook. Such an amazing and heartwrenching story
haha that makes more sense lol
I feel like it would be better as a movie but I’m thrilled they’re making it into a live action :)
I totally agree. This would be better as a movie than a series. Can’t wait to see it, I really loved this book.
