This is a weekly meme hosted by Wandering Words, where you give the first few lines of a book to hook your readers before introducing the book.

 

 

“You’re still alive in alternate universes, Theo, but I live in the real world, where this morning you’re having an open-casket funeral.  I know you’re out there, listening.  And you should know I’m really pissed because you swore you would never die and yet here we are.  It hurts even more because this isn’t the first promise you’ve broken.”

A little bit more…

 

 

 

One more time…

History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

 

When Griffin’s first love and ex-boyfriend, Theo, dies in a drowning accident, his universe implodes. Even though Theo had moved to California for college and started seeing Jackson, Griffin never doubted Theo would come back to him when the time was right. But now, the future he’s been imagining for himself has gone far off course.

To make things worse, the only person who truly understands his heartache is Jackson. But no matter how much they open up to each other, Griffin’s downward spiral continues. He’s losing himself in his obsessive compulsions and destructive choices, and the secrets he’s been keeping are tearing him apart.

If Griffin is ever to rebuild his future, he must first confront his history, every last heartbreaking piece in the puzzle of his life.

 

 

Have you read this one yet?  I sobbed so hard while reading this book.  It broke me and I loved it.

My name is Kristi and I review books and mod on TBR and Beyond on Facebook. I love to travel and go to concerts. I've been married for over 20 years. I listen to a lot of pop punk. Otherwise, I'm pretty boring. We do have four grandchildren now and try to see them monthly since they don't live close. I read mostly YA and adult mystery/thrillers. I also read a lot of middle grade and some adult romance. You can also find me on facebook, twitter, and instagram (don't post often).
