Teeth is not for the light-hearted, but I am in no way whatsoever light-hearted, which I guess is the reason why this book is perfect for me. I loved everything about it, if I am completely honest (which I always am). I loved the narrative, the way it was so raw and real. I loved our main character, Rudy. But most of all I loved Teeth, our gorgeous, torturous, broken Fishboy. I have never wanted to crawl into a book and spirit a character away more than I wanted to crawl into Teeth and spirit him away. The precious darling soul.

The romance between the boys, if you can really call it that, develops over time so perfectly and I was aching for them to kiss and for a happily ever after. I guess whether or not that happened will be for me to know and you to find out!

Jesus, David Levithan. Just STAHP WITH THE PERFECTION, ALREADY. Actually, no. Don’t. Don’t ever stop with your perfection. EVER. Write until you are decrepit and old and have to dictate with your finger for your books to be written. Because I want to keep reading them for the rest of my life. Okay? Okay.

Seriously, David Levithan is my favourite male author (not that I really read that many male authors, but if I did, it would still be David). Everything he writes is precious.

Two Boys Kissing is no different. I adored every single character. I adored the narrative. I adored the storylines. I freaking adored every single second of this precious novel, okay? I ADORED IT. ENOUGH SAID.

I really really liked Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Which is surprising because I am really not a John Green fan at all, but I found I loved his chapters almost as much as David Levithan’s (which is a compliment because DAVID LEVITHAN).

I loved how the two Will Graysons were so different in their voices, and their lives. But they were also kind of connected in the fact that they were both scared of opening up to people – but for different reasons.

I must say I did prefer David Levithan’s Will (of course, but seriously, I did) for a few reasons. I loved his anger and his angst. I always love the anger and the angst. I liked his witty humour, and I liked his fear. I liked his overall adorableness and I wanted to hug him (although he probably wouldn’t have let me).

As for John Green’s Will – I really liked him, too. I liked how odd he was and how what he said was so different to what he was thinking. I also really liked his acceptance of everyone. But most of all I liked how much he grew as a character over the span of the novel. It was paced really well, and wasn’t unrealistic at all. Hurrah for character development!

  1. I’ve wanted to read Will Grayson for a while, I recently purchased it on the Kindle and I like how you explained the differences between both Wills. For Teeth, woah from your review call me intrigued! IT sounds completely dark, raw and honest and I love the sound of it.

    Two Boys Kissing wasn’t my favourite, but it was definitely memorable and had some pretty sweet characters.

  2. I’ve wanted to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson, but I’ve never read anything from David Levithan so I wasn’t really sure if I’d like it or not. I’ve got a love-hate relationship with John Green as well. Maybe one day I’ll read it ;)
