1. Say What You Will av Cammie McGovern.
HandlingBorn with cerebral palsy, Amy can't walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.

When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.

2. Tell Me Three Things av Julie Buxbaum.
HandlingEverything about Jessie is wrong. At least, that’s what it feels like during her first week of junior year at her new ultra-intimidating prep school in Los Angeles. Just when she’s thinking about hightailing it back to Chicago, she gets an email from a person calling themselves Somebody/Nobody (SN for short), offering to help her navigate the wilds of Wood Valley High School. Is it an elaborate hoax? Or can she rely on SN for some much-needed help?

3. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear av Elizabeth Gilbert.
HandlingWith profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers powerful insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and to let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love (and how to face down what we most fear). She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits that are needed in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us uncover the strange jewels that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, or to make art, or to find new ways to address challenges in our work, or to give ourselves permission to embark on a dream long deferred, or simply to infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.

4. Everything, Everything av Nicola Yoon.
HandlingMy disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.

5. Eleanor & Park av Rainbow Rowell.
HandlingEleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.

Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.

6. The Perks of Being a Wallflower av Stephen Chbosky.
HandlingCharlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix-tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

Kommentar: Har självfallet läst alla dessa böcker och har älskat varenda en, inte alla lika mycket men ändå så att jag rekommenderar dem till vänner och allmänt människor. Tycker att du ska ta dig en titt på dessa men om du redan har läst någon av de eller kanske allihop så vore det roligt om du berättade här nedan i kommentarsfältet vad du tyckte!

serierecension | friends from collage s1

 
A group of friends from Harvard are facing down their forties. With interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with one another. "Friends from College" is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.

Jag såg hela säsongen på 2 dagar. Felaktiga, själviska, omogna karaktärer som befinner sig i löjliga situationer och som tar många fel beslut. Jag behöver inte relatera till dessa människor för att hitta dem underhållande och jag vet att människor som detta existerar. Och förhållanden som detta existerar. 
 
De flesta av recensionerna hävdar att det är meningslöst eftersom dessa människor inte skulle kunna vara vänner när de är så elaka mot varandra. Jag håller inte med, jag tycker att showen träffar exakt hur det är när du håller fast vid vänskap du gjorde under den mest själviska tiden i ditt liv.
När du blir äldre men inte växer upp. När ett dåligt beslut leder till en annan.
 
Arbetet är originelt och kvick, humor är nyanserad och subtil och det är en uppfriskande tanke på hur jobb och pengar och barn inte nödvändigtvis betyder "växa upp".
