While scrolling through the Goodreads Choice Awards, I noticed Jennifer Niven’s All the Bright Places nominated for the ‘best of the best’ category. Sadly, the novel didn’t make it to the final round, however, the awards still got me thinking about some of my favourite books that fans of All the Bright Places could enjoy.
Fans of the Impossible Life, Beautiful Mess and Moonrise are all amazing books that I felt evoked similar emotions to All the Bright Places. Furthermore, as a whole the books are relatively diverse; FOTIL has LGBT+ and mental illness representation, Beautiful Mess talks about grief & is set in Australia, and Moonrise features racially diverse lead characters.
Have you read any of these books? What were your thoughts on them? What books were you hoping to see make the final round of the Goodreads Choice Awards?
