    Maybe no boy will love me or want to touch me ever, even in a dark room, even after an apocalypse when all the skinny girls have been wiped off the earth by some horrible plague Maybe one day I can be thinner than I am now and have a boyfriend who loves me, but I ll still be a liar I was going to give this book two stars because, honestly, it started well It was compelling and didn t seem as offensive as the blurb had been, but the I think about it, the that doesn t seem to be enough of an excuse for the book as a whole Yet another book that insensitively uses its characters to create an angsty romance.If anything, I feel secure in my assessment of All the Bright Places after reading this book I got the impression in AtBP that the author was using suicide as a vehicle for romantic angst, and I received a lot of backlash for writing that review But this just seems to confirm it I feel like Niven has given very little thought to what it means to portray an obese character and a characte...

    05 05 2016 WE HAVE A COVER 3 UPDATE My reaction to everyone saying this book is offensive At first I wasn t going to say anything but then the comments and review updates on here and Twitter started to really hit a nerve with me So HERE WE GO To everyone saying that this book synopsis is offensive, how about we stop and take a moment to consider the fact that A Maybe she didn t write the synopsis B Maybe it s how the character feels about herself C Maybe, just maybe this is someone s story who wants to share it with everyone or D ALL OF THE ABOVE Everyone is so quick to point and blame Jennifer Niven for being offensive, for romanizing mental illness, for not understanding fatness How about YOU consider the fact that YOU are taking everything out of context, or that YOU are making this into something it s not In no way, shape, or form is Jennifer Niven trying to discriminate against being fat or implying that your not human THIS IS HOW THE CHARACTER FEELS But you know what, if you don t want to read this, fine, DON T READ IT But don t you dare make others feel uncomfortable or put them down because they actually want to READ THE BOOK FIRST BEFORE JUDGING IT, because WE actually have the decency to not be biased and go into a book with an open mind instead of making assumptions I m done GUYS She has another book coming out EEEKK I have a feeling Holding Up the Universe will break my heart just like ATBP did o.O OMG NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW I NEED IT...

    Welcome to the internet in the year 2016 Where a simple book blurb broke the internet for a few days A teenage girl who was rescued from her house because her weight kept her a prisoner Then through in a statement about how she is returning to high school aka..the real world after being homeschooled I KNOW Let s all run and one star and bash the book Not And all you guys thought I was the biggest bully on here didn t you Because I had for once stopped to think about what the book meant..and it made me drool all over myself.I didn t jump on the bandwagon I wanted the book even Because I ve been a bit on the fat side many times in my life I lose some weight and then I gain some weight Big dang deal I can say that now I couldn t when I was this character s age I home school my kid AND YES sometimes we talk about him joining the real world again Does that mean he is socially awkward Hell no.This book is something that if I had it in high school I would have highlighted ever stinking line of it It would have became my Shelby bible of how to deal with all the assholes that dwell in high school and real life These characters Libby Stout, she is the girl that was taken from her house By a crane Because her mom had died suddenly and she could not cope Food became her crutch, her dad didn t know how to deal with it and tried.....

    You know I don t care what anyone thinks, I just loved the hell out of this book I happy cried so many times in this book And there will probably be some SPOILERS I don t know, my feels right now are out of control This review is going to be all over the place because I m crazy and that s just the way it is I love Libby so much In this book she has so much courage Even when she was low and things hurt her, she had courage like no one I know Those hateful, horrible kids said some of the most horrible things to her I just can t fathom My name is Libby Strout You ve probably heard of me You ve probably watched the video of me being rescued from my own house At last count, 6,345,981 people have watched it, so there s a good chance you re one of them Three years ago, I was American s Fattest Teen I weighed 653 pounds at my heaviest, which means I was approximately 500 pounds overweight I haven t always been fat The short version of the story is that my mom died and I got fat, but somehow I m still here This is no way my father s fault Two months after I was rescued, we moved to a different neighborhood on the other side of town These days I can leave the house on my own I ve lost 302 pounds The size of two entire people I have around 1...

    TIME FOR THE ROAST I read All the Bright Places last year and ended up dnfing it because I had huge problems with basically every aspect of it I m actually really proud of myself for finishing this even though I did skim read the last 25% of it Honestly, when this book first came out I saw the authors name and instantly avoided this book However, after seeing a lot of people give it 5 stars despite all of the problematic aspects I had seen I decided to pick this book up for the roast.Honestly, you can read the blurb and be offended I sure was The blurb is a joke, just like the rest of the book I m honestly so sick of contemporaries in the present day that are just based around putting 2 characters in the worst possible situation and then forcing them to fall in love I say forcing because there is 0 chemistry between these characters I swear some authors just have a big long list of mental illnesses, diseases or unfortunate scenarios that they scroll down and eeny, meeny, miny, moe which ones they will choose Dead parent for you, random illness for you, a bit of anxiety on the side as well as extreme obesity and we ve got our perfe...

    This was equal parts special and frustrating for me But definitely emphasis on the special There were moments when my Vulcan soul FAILED ME COMPLETELY and I turned into a mush of squishy feels FEEEEEEEELS I think Jennifer Niven is a WIZARD OF FEELS STABBING and I love her for it Omg I did love this book I did But there were several things that made me pout in a puddle but I ll get to them in a moment PATIENCE, GRASSHOPPER.Also this is not as devastating as All the Bright Places hahhaahha THANK YOU I DON T FEEL LIKE MY HEART JUST GOT RIPPED OUT But the whole time I was absolutely dreading the ending.so I actually have all the thumping gasping feels anyway because I WAS SO WORRIED Ahem.I m having a crisis Nevermind me.So this story is about being seen, basically It s equal parts about Libby who is known as the fattest teen in America and Jack who has prosopagnosia I reeeally loved the storyline It was so poignant and beautifully written Like hold my cupcake, Bob, I need to yell THE WRITING OF JENNIFER NIVEN IS SOMETHING GORGEOUS TO BE UPHELD ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS I love it It gets me in the feels and makes me want to do glorious things I loved the messages of self worth and I loooved how everything tied together.Brief List Of Other Things I Loved There are Supernatural references SO MANY SUPERNATURAL REFERENCES win There is SO MUCH DANCING There is much diversity of colour, size, and briefly sexuality Jack has a gorgeous afro and a deep love of his ha...

    REREAD I fell in love with this book allll over again I adore Libby I adore what she stands for I love what this book stands for The hope it instills How personal it is to the author and how appreciative I am that she shared her story with us I m rooting for this book I m rooting for myself I m rooting for all the readers who have ever felt less than As Libby would say about herself, I am magic , and so, as are you Initial review I m sure a lot of you will remember the ton of backlash this book received when the blurb was revealed I mean, let s not get into that aspect of people having the audacity to judge and write off a book when they haven t read a single page of it It s aggravating to the core So, having read the book, yes, there is a lot of fat shaming that s mentioned throughout the book Fat shaming that the main character has to deal with, i.e the bullying she goes through, because of her weight But also the main character fat shaming herself, because of her insecurity, as a direct result of the bullies and other factors I personally ...

    4 stars Holding Up the Universe was an interesting and moving read with complex characters and a unique storyline I listened the the audio version of this book and once I hit play, I didn t want to stop When I read All the Bright Places earlier this year, I had the same feeling of being hooked I m happy to report the author was able to pull this off not once, but twice Our story centers around Libby Strout and Jack Masselin Libby is formally America s Fattest Teen She s spent a lot of her young adult life getting healthy and she is nowhere near thin, but she s happy with herself She decides to take the plunge, stop homeschooling and go to high school Libby is a fantastic character I loved that she s just herself She has a great relationship with her dad and meets some good friends throughout this journey for her She also meets Jack Masselin in a very unconventional way Jack s got it good in high school, or so everything thinks He s popular, has a pretty girlfriend and a lot of friends He s funny, charming and cool But he struggles every single moment of every single day See, Jack has this secret He can t recognize faces I can t even imagine how that would feel To wake up each mornin...

    ah, yes so here we are again the classic case of i can appreciate this book for the story that it is, but it definitely didnt live up to its potential and i wonder if thats mainly my own fault, and not the books all the bright places is one my favourite novels ever its emotionally compelling, lovingly tender, and naturally raw everything this book is not so is it fair to judge a different book by the same author when you know they are capable of doing better i mean, i really like the idea of the story and how wholesome it could have been i think diverse representation is something that can always be appreciated but instead of seeing libby as this strong woman, i saw a whiny brat and the connection between her and jack didnt feel convincing to me it was just a lot of superficial high school drama maybe im getting too old, but i...
