Title: All The Bright Places
Author: Jennifer Niven
Language: English
Genre: Contemporary - Young Adult
Publication Date: 6 January 2015


The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Parkin this exhilarating and heart-wrenching love story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die.
Soon to be a major motion picture starring Elle Fanning!
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.

God, how to start writing a review for this book, I loved every moment of reading it, I loved the characters, I loved almost everything basically.

I wasn’t really feeling this book when the hype started and especially when it was compared with Eleanor and Park because I didn’t like that book, as I said in my previous review, and I was like what there is no way it will be good as The Fault In Our Stars but, it was even better than both of them of course. It really gives you a The Fault In Our Stars feeling.

I loved Finch, he is wild, outrageous and does everything he wants without caring what people say about him, he made me laugh a lot. I also really loved Violet I honestly thought I wouldn’t like her at first, but after the first chapter from her point of view I really liked her, she was in denial she almost ended her life because she thought there is no point of living anymore until she met Finch.

I loved how the book deals with bipolar disorder, suicide, bulimia, physical abuse and grief, I am really a big fan of books that include mental illness and such things people deal with everyday because books can be really helpful.
