Book Review: Infinite in Between

Title: Infinite in Between
Author:
Genre: YA/teen fiction
Rating: 4.25
Reviewer: Em

This book was really good. It's about 5 teenagers and their journey throughout high school. They all meet at freshmen orientation. There, they are all placed into the same group, and their group decides to write letters to their future selves. They then make plans to meet at graduation. This book is over their four years of high school.


This book covers a lot of different relationships. Whether between the teens and their friends, classmates, family, or so on, you get to see how a relationship can change over time. You see characters changing into different people, and friends and families falling apart. This book really shows you how much things can change in four years.

A major message in this book is discovering who you are and being yourself. By the end of the book, each character seems to be with who they were meant to be with, and they seem much more them selves. They also seem happier. While one of them struggles with their appearance, and another hangs out with the wrong people, by the end of the story, they have much more clarity of who they are and who they want to be.

In the end of the book, all the characters had memories with each other that none of them would have dreamt of having when they first met. I felt myself rooting for multiple endings, in which some of became a reality. Everyone, in the end, was connected somehow. Even if they had stronger connections with different people, they group of five seemed to form its own little family. It was really interesting to read along with the characters fun, happiness, and sorrow.

This book also went over topics such as allergies, alcoholism, loss, success, talent, sexual abuse, and racial and sexual identity. It was important to look over these topics because they are very true-to-life, and for all you know, these could become important topics in your life one day.

If you are thinking of trying this book, read it! It was a story I loved to devour, and it is a book worth your attention. The characters were very realistic, and you fell in love with them. I chose this book out of a twenty book long TBR list and I'm happy I did!

Quotes: Audacity

As some of you may know by looking at my posts on our social media page (@readingisinevitable on Instagram), I am currently reading Audacity by Melanie Crowder. It is a beautiful book written in free verse, and follows the life of Clara Lemlich, a female Jewish immigrant who came to America in the early 1900s. (For the full summary of the book, click here.) I absolutely love books written in free verse, or any type of poetry, in fact! This book is so lovely that I have decided to dedicate a whole post to some of my favorite quotes or parts! (Note: I am only on page 294, and there are 366 pages, not including the extra content at the end of my local library's copy.)

Book Review: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

Title: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Author: Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Genre: Realistic Fiction, YA Fiction
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ★★★★★
Reviewer: Julia

Dante can swim. Ari can't. Dante is articulate and self-assured. Ari has a hard time with words and suffers from self-doubt. Dante gets lost in poetry and art. Ari gets lost in thoughts of his older brother who is in prison. Dante is fair skinned. Ari's features are much darker. It seems that a boy like Dante, with his open and unique perspective on life, would be the last person to break down the walls that Ari has built around himself. 

But against all odds, when Ari and Dante meet, they develop a special bond that will teach them the most important truths of their lives, and help define the people they want to be. But there are big hurdles in their way, and only by believing in each other — and the power of their friendship — can Ari and Dante emerge stronger on the other side. the book's synopsis

Dear Readers - I'm Taking a Break

Hi, everyone. I guess you've read the title by now, which means I've got some explaining to do. As you may or may not know, I've been writing on this blog for somewhere around a year and a half now. In the beginning, I was very involved. I hadn't had an active blog for a few years, and the whole thing felt new again. I started out by writing book reviews on books I had recently read, and from there had time to finish other books and write reviews on them. And things were going well in the beginning. Even though Em dropped out after a short bit of time, I still kept this blog going. 
And then something happened. 
I just... started getting busier. I had less time to write posts and I had less books to review as I started reading less. I started to take these unannounced breaks where I'd just disappear for a bit. During those times I wasn't even sure myself when I'd come back to blogging, but I'd always come back at some point. Usually I'd be bored on…

September 2017 Reflection

Happy Friday everyone! How was your September? Good, I hope? What about your October? Can you believe we're already in October, and that we're even approaching our first complete week of it...? It's now the sixth of October and the first Friday of the month, which means it's time for yet another monthly reflection, in which I pretty much just ramble on about what happened this month as well as what's to come. Oooo... be excited. (It's okay you do whatever you want to do!)

Looking Back Into September The Blog Blargh. Blargh blargh blargh. So, the blog. It didn't do horribly, but things could have been better. (At least it was better than the bookstagram, but I'll get to that in a bit, heh heh...) I had to switch over to my school posting schedule, even though I would have liked to try to keep up two posts a week for at least one more month. But, alas, school is just too much. I mean, I couldn't even handle posting once a week. That's right, I mi…
