Anything Could Happen
Tretch lives in a very small town where everybody's in everybody else's business. Which makes it hard for him to be in love with his straight best friend. For his part, Matt is completely oblivious to the way Tretch feels – and Tretch can’t tell whether that makes it better or worse.

I'm pretty fortunate that I work as a bookseller at a bookstore so I get a chance to read manuscripts and ARCs ahead of time so we're ready to sell the merchandise to customers when it arrives. Not anyone can get access to advanced work and it's the luck of the draw what they send to us. I just happen to be fortunate to get a copy sent to our company. Hope this helps.(less)

What a shame that I don't have Anything Could Happen anymore in my playlist. This book is somehow inspired by that beautiful song by Ellie Goulding. If I still have that song (I have no idea the song had been vanished in my music library), I'd played it while I'm reading this book.

Firstly, there was a lot going on in this story and I found the plot lacking in focus. There are so many elements thrown into this story that aren't developed en ...more
What did I think of this one? You mean apart from the feeling that Taylor Swift and Ellie Goulding are prolly going to end up richer because of this book?
Ha ha ha! Kidding aside, I thought the book was simple. Wait! When I say simple, I don't say it in the negative sense. What I mean is that, really the beauty of Anything Could Happen is in its simplicity. How it did not try so hard to add BIG MOMENTS which would have diverted the story out of its main purpose and/or focus. How it did not try to...more
When did I stop dancing around my room? I mean really dancing. I twirl or sway now and again, but where did my reach for the stars need to dance go?
Memories. The memories a book can spark and pull out of me is just one of the many reasons why I read. Some books make me reminisce about where I’ve been or who I was. Others help me see and dream of where I want to go or who I want to be. Every so often a book comes along that does both though—inspires memories of the past and hopes for the future. ...more
Perdão pelo trocadilho, mas essa foi a minha sensação ao terminar a leitura. O livro tem diversos pontos fortes. O protagonista é divertido e super fácil de gostar. O melhor amigo dele tem dois pais (e eles são um casal MARAVILHOSO). A narrativa é gostosinha, a história é bonitinha, mas faltou alguma coisa pra chegar lá.
Não consegui desgostar da história (inclusive adorei o final que é um soquinho de realidade no nosso estômago). ...more
I think the writing in this novel is pretty solid. I loved the flow of it, which made this an easy quick read for me. I also really liked all of the characters, from the MC Tretch-O, to his fa ...more
I received a review copy courtesy of the author/publisher. This does not affect my opinion or views regarding the book whatsoever.
I'm soooo disappointed in this book.

I am a HUGE fan of LGBT. I love how the characters and stories are always so lively, creative, over-the-top, diverse, etc. So I truly was excited when I received Anything Could Happen for review. What I thought was going to be an amazing coming of age story about a young guy in ...more
Anything Could Happen was one of those books I was really looking forward too. A gay guy in love with his straight best friend? Fuck yeah. Hottie on the cover? Fuck yeah. Cute romance promised? Fuck yeah. But, once I actually dove into the story I found myself struggling to find any meat in the story.

Nota técnica: 1/5
Como parte de mis propósitos de año nuevo me propuse a mí mismo el ser más honesto tanto para conmigo como para con los demás, por lo que de ahora en adelante daré dos calificaciones a la mayoría de mis libros, la nota emotiva que está dada en base a lo que me hizo sentir la historia ya sea que haya sido enojo o alegría y la cual será explicada en mis entradas del Blog, y la nota técnica la cual calificara la prosa, el estilo, el ritmo, los personajes, el mundo ...more
I happen to love gritty novels that don't pull punches. Plotty mysteries with intense action scenes. Ray guns, spaceships, spies, and deep dark secrets. But, after running around in several of those stories, it's nice to sit down, take my shoes off, and rest for a while. Someti ...more

And another thing - I just zoomed along. I was never bored, and wanted to stay in the little world Walton created.
Re-read in 2016. Still so good. Tretch has such a sweet disposition. We all need characters who represent us, and can show us the good.

Anything Can Happen is both warmly written and heart swelling. I found it to be something refreshing in in Young Adult, and will surely be a book I will be pushing at people.
Tretch knew he way gay the moment Matt grabbed his hand at church. But he lives in the south, where being gay isn't something that is easily understood. Ironically Matt has two dads, and constantly reminds other people as well as himself that he isn't gay. During winter break ...more
