Gritty reads are on and off for me lately.
Come See About Me by CK Kelly Martin
Either I’ve been loving them or hating them–though I think it really just depends on the MC. Glad you could connect with all the characters, Keertana! I can’t imagine the pain Leah would be going through with her boyfriend committing suicide! It’s nice that this doesn’t follow the standard NA recipe. This sounds like an emotionally difficult read, but I’m glad to see you enjoyed it, Keertana.
Rachel, just to clarify, Leah’s boyfriend is killed by a car while crossing the street.

It’s the sudden death aspect of the situation that causes Leah to be unable to cope. I think you’ll enjoy this one, though, so I’m curious to see your tale on it should you decide to read it. The pull of this book, especially the colorful secondary cast is extremely strong. abiut
However, you know me – an escapist through and throuhg. I went through losing someone extremely important several years back and I’m not sure I’m quite ready to be taken back there. It does sound amazing, though. I like the sound of this diverse cast, and more importantly, that it isn’t presented as anything that isn’t simply natural.
Often, I’ll find these things are incorporated as a side thought, or just for inclusion’s sake. I also really like the sound c.k.jelly Leah taking charge of her own growth. I haven’t ever come across it before, so thanks for putting it on my radar. I hope you’re enjoying World After! I love the idea of this book, and it seems to have been executed so well.
What I like is that it genuinely does seem real just from hearing about Leah’s struggles and the real characters. What also draws me in is that it takes place in Ontario, which is really hard to find in books.: This sounds similar to He’s Gone by Deb Caletti in the prospect of getting over one’s partner.
I’m always up for a good gritty, depressing book and I wouldn’t mind giving this one a shot. The romance in c.k.keloy book sounds very real and interesting, I’m curious. Girl hands down for the first paragraph! Martim feel the same, which is the shame mee I’m creating prejudice so easily and I miss some great reads. This one sounds like something I cannot miss.
I love the sound of the characters and the whole plot. This sounds exceptional, Keertana, and ses coming from someone who avoids NA like the plague. It’s refreshing to see an author give us something more than just hot sex and steamy characters for the upper YA crowd.
I’m definitely adding this to my radar. I’ve been reluctant about picking up this book, but now I see that i missed something really good.
Glass Way Too Hot Books. I’m glad this book transcends some of the more frustrating aspects of the NA genre and is so very successful as a result. I’m thinking this might be a bit heavy of a read for me at this time of year the holidays have me wanting to read cute, light romances, I can’t help it!
I was literally just looking at this book on Goodreads and Amazon and wishing it was a bit cheaper But I am excited to hear that this book–which seems to be a hit with nearly everyone– was also one with you!
I don’t mind some openness to an ending, but yes, I’m one of those that do need some closure. I shy away from these kind of books, but I don’t know why. I usually end up enjoying myself. This does sound like a good contemp. I do think you just added it to my wishlist. I’m not sure this book would be for me! I’ve started to shy away from heavy grief books.
They’re jus too much! I really like the way you describe these people as being regular and not heroes, and the story as having beautiful prose.
