description

"They Both Die at the End" is the BOTM of June, for the theme "LGBTQ+ Pride Month"! Although "Ramona Blue" got an equal amount of votes, I let the highest GoodReads rating decide.
You can find the guidelines here.

Please sign up in this thread, if you want to join the readalong.

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
They Both Die at the End

So the idea of a 'Book of the month' is sort of a read-along. The BOTM thread (this one) will be for the people who want to do the read-along and share their thoughts after each goal (June 6/7 - I just read till chapter 3 and my thoughts are .... etc.). Spoilers must be marked of course!

I'm going to go ahead and post. Part 1 has 13 chapters, but they're small, I read them so fast. You guys don't need to, though :)

I'm done with part 1

I need to evaluate my feelings


Cordelianne | 192 comments Mod
I completely forgot about this. I am so sorry, have been so crazy busy with uni that I finished my first book in a month yesterday.. I will try to read it next week. Since I will have summer break than :)


Ilsen Leon | 768 comments Mod
Omg same Regsly. I was broken when I finished this. Crying as I look over the Switzerland landscape XD

It's fine, Cordelianne! Glad to see you! If you do read it, I'll be glad to talk about it with you :3
I finished it yesterday because I have volunteer work this weekend and won't have any time for myself

@Ilsen I wasn't crying, though my eyes were moist due to allergies *pout* I was at that point where I was weakened by the allergies, so kinda numb, but also could cry more easily. (view spoiler)


The Half-blood Reader (half_bloodreader) | 948 comments Mod
Also, looking over the Switzerland landscape as you cry sounds great, give me some of that. I only get to see sky, field, buildings and faraway trees as I wonder what this book gave and took from me
