Amanda's Bookshelf

I'm a culture junkie who works at a bookstore. Pop, high-brow, junk -- it's all good. I try and consume it all. I read tons, especially young adult fiction. I also love quirky, offbeat novels; cultural analysis; mythology; girly fiction; fantasy; screwball romantic comedies; books with extremely flawed characters, yet somehow you really empathize with them; nonlinear narratives and language play.

You Don't Have to Say You Love Me

You Don't Have to Say You Love Me - Sarra Manning Rarely do I re-read books. My theory is that there are so many books out there to read and so little time to do it, what's the point (for me, mainly--I get people do it all the time).I first read this book in July, yet I have already re-read it since I fell in love with Neve, Max and their story. I seriously cannot stress enough how much I adore these characters and this book. Just read it!It's a shame it's not published in the US since I've been getting my friends into it, but I wish it was easier to get here.Anyway, I absolutely love this book and read it over and over again.
