All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Published: January 6th 2015 by Knopf
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.
I have heard some fantastic things about this book, so I am really excited to get to it!! Have any of you guys read it? Thoughts?

Ohh great pick for this week Lauren. All the Bright Places is a book I read recently myself as well. There were parts of the story and things the characters went through that were quite uncomfortable for me to read but overall I thought it was a wonderful story and brilliant written as well so I really hope you enjoy it too! 😀
I’ve heard some really great things 🙂 so I am definitely looking forward to reading it! I’m glad you enjoyed it as well, despite the uncomfortable parts
I’m pretty sure all the great things you’ve heard are true, and I’m sure you’ll love this book as well! 😀
