    One thought on “All the Forever Things”

    1. I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to Albert Whitman Company and NetGalley Wanna guess He grins.I glance at the man s face, a little grayish now, but it will pink pretty quickly once the embalming fluid fills his veins.The man is older, but not super old About ten years older than my dad and pretty overweight Heart attack This was a YA contemporary story about a girl who lived at a funeral home.Gabriella came across as a quite normal sort of girl, even if she did like to pla [...]

    2. All the Forever Things is a unique book that deals with deep issues in a sensitive and entertaining way.I think every young adult or adult who is was an outcast will be able to relate to Graveyard Gabe, even if your family does not own a funeral home The story is bittersweet and touches on friendship, embracing who we are, first loves, forgiveness, and death Somehow this is all put together in a way that hurts at times but is funny and entertaining at others.I recommend All the Forever Things fo [...]

    3. When I saw a new book by Jolene Perry I knew I had to read it, even so after reading the synopsis The idea of the protagonist living at a funeral home really drew me in, and i had to know how this affected her and her social lifeGabe lives in funeral home that is run and owned by her parents, and once that knowledge is out tends to scare possible friends away Her one and only friend in school is Bree, whilst everyone else either avoids her, or makes fun of her dress sense and her home One perso [...]

    4. This book was excruciatingly boring.That might have had to do with the fact that I read this over the course of three months But the thing is, I didn t want to pick this up It didn t pull me in, and there was little to no plot whispers to book this is your fault, not minearacters This was the one part that I could get behind Bree and Gabe had fun personalities and I genuinely enjoyed reading from Gabe s voice and her point of view However, as there was a break in Bree and Gabe s relationship, Ga [...]

    5. The main character is selfish and immature The most interesting thing about her was that her family runs a funeral home I wish the author would have been a bit original instead of making Gabriella a Wednesday Adams clone The MC talks about how wonderful her relationship is with her BFF until her BFF does something she doesn t agree with gasp dating a guy Gabriella doesn t like and then she spends the rest of the book trying to prove how awful the guy is The dialogue is overly simplistic, and th [...]

    6. What can I say about this novel I m sitting on the fence on this one as I found it frustrating and sad How can individuals be so selfish and why do individuals lay down and let themselves be so exposed I found it frustrating that sixteen year old Gabe had only one true friend I understand that living at a funeral home and having parents that own the home put a damper on things but there has to be a way to find friends When Bree isn t there for Gabe, she has nothing, a big fat ZERO and my heart b [...]

    7. I received a copy from Netgalley, In exchange for an honest review I can t say I loved the characters in this, but they weren t awful.This wasn t a bad read, but it wasn t one that gripped me unfortunately It struggled to keep my interest, and I felt quite bored for most of it It didn t drag too badly though thankfully.Overall, Not awful, but nowhere near as good as the other books I ve read from this author.

    8. 12 19 2017 In retrospect, I m pretty neutral about this book It had its moments where I identified with Gabe, Bree, and the others, but then there were other moments where I realized I wasn t invested in this story I normally don t read contemporary it isn t my go to genre I read it once in a while, and there are books like Me Before You, Eliza and Her Monsters, The Hate U Give, The Upside of Unrequited, Love is Both Particle and Wave, and many others that make part of my heart their home Sadly, [...]

    9. 3.5 starsI enjoyed the setting and the quirky characters as well as Gabe s slightly bizarre way of dealing with the dead people in her home Vada from My Girl has nothing on Gabe.However, I absolutely hated everything about her relationship with Bree, especially Bree herself which made the whole crux of the story kind of difficult for me.

    10. Jolene Perry has yet to let me down with her writing and this is no different However, I will go out on a limb and say that this is one of my FAVORITE books by her that I ve read so far This book is full of humor, sadness and characters that you can relate to It really makes you look at losing a loved one so differently Gabe works and lives in a funeral home that her parents run so she sees death all the time It doesn t hold the sadness that it does for most She has sort of become immune to it w [...]

    11. I think I had my expectations for this a little high Because the main character, Gabe Gabriella , lives in a funeral home, it immediately drew connections for me to My Girl and Six Feet Under although SFU is way too adult for this, clearly Gabe was also a little Wednesday Addams She was odd and quirky in a likable but at times immature way She s a teen, I can forgive immaturity Gabe s best friend is Bree But Bree starts dating a guy who is a jerk to Gabe , and Gabe is sidelined This is actually [...]

    12. Gabriella Osborn s parents run a family business of being undertakers, of which Gabriella and her cousin help out at.Gabriella s best friend Bree also does make up on the dead there.We learn about Gabe as she s known to everybody else and Bree s history of discovering boys and their shared passion of all things, vintage, dark, Gothic, Wednesday Addams style fashions and films.Bryce the school jock ruined Gabe s first kiss but now he s dating Bree leaving her with new guy Hartman whom she s embar [...]

    13. Everything about this moment is familiar The silent communication between Mom and Dad as they shift the casket into the best position for viewing The bereaved s sighs, me sliding the soft soles of my shoes over the carpet, and the overpowering smell of condolences that have arrived from companies with names like flowers r us From growing up in the funeral home her family runs, Gabriella knows that death is a part of life and nothing is forever Yet Bree, her best friend, has been a constant it s [...]

    14. Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me to read this ARC of ALL THE FOREVER THINGS in exchange for my honest review Graveyard Gabe s parents run a funeral parlor, hence the charming nickname She doesn t mind being an outcast, as long as she has BFF Bree by her side But when Bree breaks the cardinal sisters before misters rule by getting a popular boyfriend, Gabe is beyond hurt and angry She s determined to prove that Bryce is a bad influence with the help of a new friend who is NOT her boyfriend.Jol [...]

    15. In many ways I enjoyed this story While Gabe annoyed me at times she is actually pretty clueless , I was able to forgive her this After all the story is really about her finding her way through her flaws In terms of ideas there is a quite a lot going on and I was pleased to see that Perry was not afraid to tackle the tricky subjects of death and the meaning of life I liked the setting for the story a funeral home although I tend to feel that Perry settled for cliches in her depiction of this too [...]

    16. Thanks to Netgalley for allowing me to read an ARC of All the Forever Things I have mixed feelings about this book On the one hand I found the general story line and characters to be appealing I like that Gabe had a complex relationship with death I mean she dresses like Wednesday Addams and lives works in a funeral home mansion I liked that she had a friend with a bad home life This is good, this is unique and engaging On the other hand, there were quite a few drawbacks for me as a reader Tiny [...]

    17. Gabe Gabby to her parents, much to her annoyance lives in a funeral parlor It s the family business Most of her classmates think she s really weird but she doesn t care She has her best friend, Bree, and they re happy Except then Bree starts dating Bryce who used to be really mean to Gabe, and who s never been exactly pleasant to her Now their friendship is really strained and Gabe has no idea how to get her friend backor how to deal with the guy she s kind of dating This book has a lot going on [...]

    18. This isn t the usual sort of book I read I tend to stay away from the angsty books, but there was something about this one that made me request it I looooooved Gabe She s smart and snarky and doesn t really know how to deal with people outside of her BFF, Bree I was captivated while reading her figuring out how to navigate the changes and ups and downs of her life I wasn t a huge fan of Bree, but was able to understand a bit once we got the entire story As for Hartman, yeah, he s perfect for Ga [...]

    19. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this ebook ARC in exchange for my honest review.3 out of 5 stars.I struggled with this book from the beginning The distant narrator made it difficult to engage with her Although the story includes a unique character living in a different kind of house, it felt clich for most of the novel with the usual school setting, and prom, and friends Around the last third of the book, a turn of events made me care for the characters, and the story improved a bunch [...]

    20. Well,Gabe is probably the most selfish MC I ve ever read about I mean seriously, she s even worse than the Alphas I ve read about.I could ve rated this with 5 stars but unfortunately, by the end of the book I was so exasperated with Gabe, I want to throttle her.If you come to think of it, what she did was a self imposed isolation She decided to act out based on the taunts and she ended up isolating herself and dragging Bree with her I mean like seriously, who are you to dictate how your friend s [...]

    21. Forevers are everywhere All The Forever Things was a super quirky read but one that was Impossible to put down Gabe s spent her whole life living above her family s funeral parlour, she has the whole Wednesday Addams vibe going on which I love But this has made Gabe a target for ridicule and she s over cautious about stuff that could end in death, case in point she doesn t swim in the sea because of drowning, hates driving her car and never learnt to a bike A unique YA novel that ask the questio [...]

    22. I loved this book It may be my new favorite Jolene Perry book And that s really saying something Gabe was such an interesting, compelling character I really felt for her and what she was going through And Hartman was just plain wonderful Seriously wonderful story about friendship, growing apart, and growing up.

    23. I got a copy from Netgalley I somehow like the story of the BFF thingy and the fact that Gabriella lives in a funeral home But the story just get me little off while reading it and I didn t much enjoy it.The story goes with Gabriella that been all weird Wearing black dresses and her family runs a funeral home but rather than that she has a best friend, Bree When Bree started dating Bryce, his worst enemy and ruined her first kissed, she already know her friend is in trouble and Hartman came to h [...]

    24. This book was better the second time I read it I realized it had a lot great themes in it that include the abuse that teens do to themselves when they are depressed It s not perfect but overall a good read.

    25. I received a copy of this book from Albert Whitman Company via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
