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.)

Navigating Bookstagram - Stories & Tips From a Small(er?) Account - Hosting a SFS

All the way back in the beginning of April, I published a post on shoutout-for-shoutout sessions (SFS's) in the bookstagram community, specifically entering them. Now, I will - after promising to do so back in my first SFS post - finally discuss hosting your own SFS.

Em and I have done two shoutout-for-shoutout sessions in the past: one on our own when we hit 1,000 followers, and one with a group of bookstagrammers in honor of the then-new year, 2017. Therefore, shoutout-for-shoutout sessions can be hosted by one account or a group of accounts. As mentioned in my previous post, besides single and group shoutout sessions, there are now two types of SFS's. These two types are post SFS's and story SFS's, the latter available due to the relatively recent addition of Instagram Stories.

Basic Guidelines for All SFS's No matter the format of your SFS, there are some basic guidelines that most bookstagrammers follow when hosting a shoutout session. To start, some sort of

Easy Sticky Note Bookmark

Something I think that us bookworms or really anyone who is reading a book is that sometimes we aren’t really prepared to read a book. Not in the sense that we don’t know some words or the subject/events of the book are not what was expected. What I’m talking about is bookmarks. We never can really seem to find them when needed, or we don’t want to use that special bookmark we made or bought for $20. Whether it’s because you decided to start reading a book you found at a library/bookstore that you didn’t intend to get, or because you lost your bookmark or some other reason, we all face that big imposing question: Should I try to remember the page number, or should I dog-ear the book?

If you’re someone who deeply cares for all books - your own and others’ - then the last option isn’t really an option at all.

So here is a solution that might come in handy at school. Do you have a regular-sized square sticky note? Have a few seconds? Well, this little trick might save your book’s (and pos…

Navigating Bookstagram - Stories & Tips From a Small(er?) Account - Instagram Business Tools

Hello, fellow bookstagrammers! Today I'm sharing with you yet another installment of the Navigating Bookstagram series, and it's all about using Instagram's business tools for bookstagram! But what exactly are Instagram business tools?


Instagram has been offering tools and insights for businesses to use since 2014, but more useful, updated tools only came out in the spring of 2016. By connecting a Facebook account to the Instagram page, users can now see analytics on each individual post and their posts as a whole, as well as information on the demographic of their followers. Additionally, if they add the feature, users can view insights on their Instagram stories.

Setting Up Business Tools
First, you'll need to create a Facebook account and/or page. Once you have a Facebook account, you can create a business page by clicking the down arrow at the top of the screen and "Create Page." From there, choose from the options they give you (below). What you pick wil…
