My Heart and Other Black Holes was recommended to me, and I’m glad I got to read it. I think this book may have pulled me out of a two month long reading slump! I have been enjoying Contemporary books lately, this one and Paper Towns are now my favorites from that genre. My Heart and Other Black Holes was hard to read and not cry, page after page I kept having to hold back tears.
Aysel has been depressed ever since her dad committed a terrible crime, everyone keeps there distance, they’re scared of what she might do, who she might become. It was interesting to see how Roman and Aysel’s relationship changed overtime, and how Aysel began to look forward to the future.
This book had moments that made me cry. My Heart and Other Black Holes was dark and mainly dealt with partner suicide, and depression, not light topics.
I feel like I would recommend this book to everyone, it was both sweet and sad. There were so many great quotes added in that just punched my “feels” in the guts.
If you ever need anyone to talk to about suicide or depression just talk to Angelina and I, we’re always there for anyone 😀 plus here’s the suicide hotline: 1 (800) 273-8255
- “Maybe we all have darkness inside of us and some of us are better at dealing with it than others.”
- “You’re like a grey sky. You’re beautiful, even though you don’t want to be.”
- “Sometimes I wonder if my heart is like a black hole–it’s so dense that there’s no room for light, but that doesn’t mean it can’t still suck me in.”
- “I wonder if that’s how darkness wins, by convincing us to trap it inside ourselves, instead of emptying it out.
I don’t want it to win.”
If you enjoyed this book why not try these?
