Just wanted to share a recent (good) read with you. Over the course of three days earlier this month, I tore through Denton Little's Deathdate by Lance Rubin. It's a quick read, and even quicker for me because I was on vacation. So I had more time to read than I normally do. But I absolutely loved this book, so I wanted to share it with you. The basic premise (no spoilers) is that everyone in the world now knows when they will die. They call it your deathdate, and you live most of your life knowing when it will be. Weird, right? This changes SO much about how we would go about life, or at least it would for me. So it was fascinating to watch a teenage boy approach his own deathdate with his friends and family. Which might sound dark or depressing, but it was just the opposite. This book is really funny! And it reminded me to enjoy the 'right now'.
If you're looking for a fun and quick summer read this season, I highly recommend checking this out. Happy weekend! xo. Emma
