    There?s some disagreement within the CF community about whether or not this book is an accurate depiction of CF. And I think that will depend on who you ask. Each and every person with CF experiences this disease in our own way, from its severity to our symptoms, to how we feel about...

    This is a novelization of Mikki Daughtry & Tobias Iaconis?s script for the 2019 movie and not the other way around. As a contemporary YA story, Five Feet Apart does a couple of my least favourite things when it comes to representing chronic illness and including LGBT charac...

    4.5 Stars! Taking a chance on an author and a subject that you know little to nothing about, is always a risk and in some cases, its a chance, a risk, worth taking. As is the case with Five Feet Apart. Beautifully written, heartfelt, emotional, and a read that will stick with you...

    DNF at 30% Reading this you realise this was written only to get money from moviegoers, or teenagers that like to read the book first and then see the movie. The writing is mediocre at best, and the story itself is just a typical YA tearjerker. We as YA readers are so over these ty...

    It's been said (although the provenance of the quote is questionable) that, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results." While this adage holds true in many aspects of my life, in this case it applies to my penchant for read...

    I don't normally review books immediately after reading the last page. This gives me an opportunity to think and process what I've read and get my emotions in order. For Five Feet Apart I am breaking that rule as I feel that my emotions are important to why I wasn't a big fan of Rachel...

    I don?t normally read things like this book because I?m not really into the angst, but I?m so so happy I gave this one a try. I love love loved Stella and Will. They?re so different in their personalities and that comes through in how they manage their CF. I loved her lists...

    I like the idea here: exploring the complications of being a young person living with CF. But a queer person of colour dies quite randomly from CF complications right after deciding to get back together with the love of their life and that death motivates one of the protagonists to sta...

    Just a money-making machine. There`s no real ending, since, I guess, the authors were too afraid to make it tragic. And as a whole, this book is just a bunch of clichs and sweet, tumblr level moments to make teens happy and teary. Nothing even close to TFIOS. (view spoiler)[Oh, and t...

    I am always super keen to read books with disability rep! I think YA needs way more disability narratives, and this features two teens with cystic fibrosis. It also has a curious origin story because, from what I understand, it was written off the screen the movie came first?...

    I?m sorry, but did someone put a spell on me and made my heart into a stone while reading this book because it?s incapable of feeling any emotions aside from exasperation? It's such a bummer that this book has one of the prettiest covers I've ever seen, yet it has the MOST CRAPP...

    This was my first romance novel in? months. I couldn?t bring myself to read a story that focused heavily on a boy and a girl falling in love for a long time. That?s what happens when there is boy drama (and its aftershocks) in my life. I needed to step away from romance and f...

    This book, OMG, it wrecked me, it tore my heart into pieces, then put them back together. I cried a lot while reading this book. But the most beautiful thing is that after the first few chapters, I didn?t think I would love ?Five Feet Apart? this much. However, after reading the ...

    2 / 5 ~ I?m convinced this was written for children but advertised as Young Adult because it would make more profit or something (or maybe I have no idea what I?m talking about?), because the writing in Five Feet Apart is not good. There are too many exclamation marks, the stor...

    Two things before I start my review: 1. I really, really, REALLY wanted to like this book. I believe it?s urgent to raise awareness about CF and many other chronic illnesses (many of them invisible) countless people live with. 2. I don?t have CF and I don?t have family memb...

    *2.5 stars* I had super low expectations going into this, but found myself really enjoying it. I really liked the characters (the side characters were also great) and even though the ending was corny as all hell, I thought it was a solid read. HOWEVER, (view spoiler)[the only ch...

    Here's a link to the trailer! ? ?Every place is different. Every place is unique. It?s the hospitals I?m seeing them from that are the same.? As a whole, this novel doesn?t suffer from any critical faults. It?s a solid story, with a sweet romance, and brings about g...

    Bullet review: I think I would have enjoyed it better if I had physically read this (I read it via audiobook and the narrator's voice didn't convey the emotion of the dialogue), writing was not my favourite type, I loved the character development, the romance, the insight to cystic fib...
