REVIEW | History is All You Left Me

By Adam Silvera Rating: 4.5/5 Goodreads | Book Depository | Amazon Love: the hugest liar in this universe. GET READY FOR A FEELS DUMP BECAUSE I FINISHED THIS HOUR AGO AND I AM NOT OKAY. OKAY? Okay. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – contemporaries: not my thing. And I don’t mean…
