Wishful Wednesday [3] - My Heart and Other Black Holes

made and edited by me
Howdy y'all it's wednesday again! This means that it is time for another Wishful Wednesday!! Okay, so I'm so glad I'm able to post a Wishful Wednesday post since I'm kind of facing my finals in college and I've been busy studying (emphasis on the dying). I would like to apologize if there's no new book review posts this week.

So, Wishful Wednesday is a weekly meme where you post a book that you want on wednesdays! This meme is hosted by kak Astrid @ Books to Share. For this week's Wishlist Wednesday, I'm going to be posting about a contemporary book! Let's get it on!!

This week's selection for contemporary is:
Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.
There’s only one problem: she’s not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel’s convinced she’s found her solution: a teen boy with the username FrozenRobot (aka Roman) who’s haunted by a family tragedy is looking for a partner.

Even though Aysel and Roman have nothing in common, they slowly start to fill in each other’s broken lives. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, she must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together. Except that Roman may not be so easy to convince.
Reasons why this book was chosen:
  • A book involving mental health. Hello! It's a suicide book.
  • The main character is a physics nerd so I'm expecting a kind of An Abundance of Katherines feeling where there are complicated formulas or equations implemented in daily activities.
  • 4.08 rating on Goodreads.

  1. Woh, baca sinopsis bukunya jadi penasaran. Aku gak gitu nyaman baca buku yang kelam-kelam, tapi My Heart and Other Black Holes kayaknya unik. Aaaak. Aku berharap Aysel gak jadi bunuh diri dan jadian sama FrozenRobot. >.<
