Book Looks: They Both Die at the End – Adam Silvera


Title: They Both Die at the End (2017)
Author: Adam Silvera
Genre: Young Adult, LGBTQIA+

On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today.

Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure and to live a lifetime in a single day.

Read an excerpt…

Death-Cast is calling with the warning of a lifetime — I’m going to die today. Forget that, “warning” is too strong a word since warnings suggest something can be avoided, like a car honking at someone who’s crossing the street when it isn’t their light, giving them the chance to step back; this is more of a heads-up. The alert, a distinctive and endless gong, like a church bell one block away, is blasting from my phone on the other side of the room. I’m freaking out already, a hundred thoughts immediately drowning out everything around me. I bet this chaos is what a first-time skydiver feels as she’s plummeting out of a plate, or a pianist playing his first concert. Not that I will ever know for sure.

It’s crazy. One minute ago I was reading yesterday’s blog entry fromΒ Countdowners — where Deckers chronicle their final hours through statuses and photos via live feeds, this particular one about a college junior trying to find a home for his golden retriever — and now I’m going to die.

Have you read this one yet? What do you think?Β πŸ’™

  1. This is such a lovely look, Reg, I love it so much! I can’t wait to read that one but I know it’ll break my heart ahah.
    I hope you’re doing okay! Sending you love ❀


  2. This is a great outfit Reg, I can actually see this as being something I would wear, especially because there are glasses included and I need glasses to see. πŸ™‚
    Also I am so excited for this book. I’ve heard some good things so far from people who have already read it and despite knowing Adam Silvera is going to break my heart with this release I can’t wait to get my hands on it. πŸ˜€ ❀
    Have you read it yet?


  3. This is such a cute look. I know I want to read this book but I’ve got to be in the right mood for it. I know it’ll crush me so I’ll just have to dive in head first with this book.


    • I totally hear you re: being in the right mood – it’s why I haven’t picked up History is All You Left Me yet, and at this point I might never read that one because it’s just too sad right off the bat. πŸ˜‚ I hope you like this one!
