You've probably already heard the summary of TATWD millions of times, but because I'm a Basic Book Blogger™ ;);) and just in case some of you haven't already heard it/have the memory of the goldfish and if so, same lol and have forgotten, I will recap it anyway. Turtles All The Way Down follows Aza, a quiet, intelligent and quirky teenager with severe OCD, as her and her best friend Daisy begin to try and solve this mystery of where a fugitive billionaire has gone. However, it is not a mystery story - the focus at the beginning (plot-wise) is pretty much all on the missing billionaire and trying to solve the mystery, but pretty quickly it becomes apparent that TATWD is not actually a mystery at all, it just happens to include one.. do not be fooled aha!!
Also, whilst I haven't experienced any of these issues that are tackled with in the book first-hand (which I'm very grateful for), I have heard the opinions of those who have and they've all said the representation was accurate and on-point, which is always very important with books like this which will be read by a huge audience. And it's an #ownvoices book which I love, particularly in YA novels.
So.. Is It Worth The Hype? I'm going to be straight out with it.. I really loved this book! I've never read any of Green's work before (although really want to read The Fault In Our Stars now) so when TATWD released, and there was so many amazing reviews raving about it being published, I knew I just had to read it myself. And I'm glad I did! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone aged 13+!!
Have you read TATWD? What did you think? Did it live up to the hype for you? byeee xx
completely unrelated sidenote: I'm obsessed with Friends (the show lol) at the moment oh my life... It's the type of show most people have at least seen a few episodes of, but I never had until it came to Netflix UK.. I started it around 3 weeks ago, and I'm already on Season 8 I LOVE IT AND I HAVE A PROBLEM ahahah!! i'm literally so addicted ahh it's insane. I'll talk more about it in a different post probably but ahh it's amazing ahahahah
