Monday Reviews - On a Friday! - I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews on a Friday! This week, I am reviewing a book I just finished this week, I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. 


As some of you may know, I was a little preoccupied these past few weeks getting ready for university, so even though it took me 6 days to read this book (when it probably would normally have taken 3), it was not because it was a bad book. I really enjoyed it actually.

This book was just such a deep and detailed book, I could only read small sections at a time before needing to take a break. I feel like there were maybe ten chapters in this book, but they were long. Like one of them was close to 75-80 pages. I did end up really enjoying this book, but the long chapters made for putting the book down in the middle of one inevitable, which is something I don't usually like doing. 

I did get some great quotes and it was one of the most well written books I've ever read.


I really liked how the title was incorporated into the book. I love it when you can see how the title was chosen, and in this book, it was just such a great choice I think.
My only complaint is that I felt like once the big issue was resolved in the last two chapters, the ending was a little lacklustre. Nobody really was too upset, and I guess they went with the high road mentality and just kind of went with the flow, but I didn't really think that was realistic.

I ended up giving this book a 4/5 stars on Goodreads, and I would definitely recommend it!
