I won't lie: This is probably the first work of non-fiction I've ever read. Generally, I'm not the biggest fan of non-fiction, but these books have been on my TBR list for a long time and with the Black Lives Matter movement having such a big impact on the world, I thought that it's about time I read these books.
One of the strangest things about this book for me is the fact that the title is literal. There is literally a girl made partly of hawthorn and glass. The girl was literally built by using things such as hawthorn, glass, and other stuff. So, this is the first time I’ve read a book where the title is literal.
Okay. So, somehow I've got to write a review for a book that gave me all the feels. Somehow I've got to convey these feelings through words so that I can convince you to read this book if you haven't already, and I don't know if I'm capable of that. If this review seems a bit all over the place and doesn't necessarily make sense, you know why.
I'm going to be honest by saying my expectations for this book was sky-high, for the usual reasons. It's John Green's brother, the hype surrounding this was pretty big, and it says THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER on the back.
Today I'm going to tell you about some books that have recently been published or will be published later this year. These books haven't gotten as much limelight as I think they deserve, so feel free to try them out!
