Four Corners of the Bookshelf September Book: I'll Give You the Sun

I'll Give You the Sun cover
This September in honor of #SadSeptember the #4CornersBC will be reading I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. I'm quite interested to read this because it is about a girl and her twin brother and the relationship they have. This really hits home to me because I myself am a teenage girl with a twin brother and our relationship isn't quite what it used to be.
If you’d like to join in on the read-along, pick up a copy and head on over to our Goodreads group or use the #4CornersBC hashtag on Twitter. We’ll be finishing up the week on Saturday the 19th of September with our live Hangout at 8 am EST time (12 GMT, 1 pm UK time).

We’re also hosting a competition!!!

Art plays a big part of the story, or so I’ve been told…I haven’t read it yet! As such, we want all you artistic folks out there to share with us your creativity.
If you’re reading and are suddenly inspired by a passage, act on that inspiration! It could be anything – a sketch, hand-lettering a quote, a painting, a sculpture… Hell, even macaroni art would be awesome! Share it on Twitter or in the Goodreads group and we’ll feature it in the chat.
We’re also accepting any art inspired by Air Awakens, our August book! I know the author, Elise Kova, would LOVE to see fan art for her book, so you’re making her happy too. 

We’ll then choose one lucky winner to receive a preorder of our November book: Soundless by Richelle Mead.

If Book Depository ships to your country, you’re eligible!!! All entries need to be in by Friday, 18th September at 1pm UK time…so basically 24 hours before the chat starts.

Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah’s story to tell. The later years are Jude’s. What the twins don’t realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world. 

Join the conversation!

  1. Yayyy!!! I really liked this book, so I'm excited to see what other people will think :)
