I'm giving this a so-so not because it's a bad book but because there were bits I really like and bits I didn't like

I liked how interwoven the story was and how it showed the impact we can have on people without realizing

I didn't like the romance, that felt forced and abrupt and wasn't necessary

This was one of my #trappedonanisland books chosen by @aperfectmjk

aperfectmjk Wow! You're off to a quick start this month. Sorry this was just so-so for you. 1w

Two boys trying to live it up on their last day. While it did give good insights about how to live, did not feel like it followed through in it‘s own advice. Not liking the Death Call isn‘t a reason to dislike this YA. What I didn‘t feel was the boys relationship. Talk about forced. The ending was just not fair. Not a bad story, not my thing. forced happiness does not make it happy, even if you‘re conquering fears and doing what always wanted to

This was an out of character read for me. I was about to stop reading it as it had its moments, but after powering through I actually enjoyed it! So if you stopped with this one, pick it back up! It will get better!

Apparently I‘m the only person on Litsy who is NOT a fan of this book. I found the premise too far fetched (calling a parent and telling them their 5-year-old is going to die?) and the chemistry between the two main characters unrealistic 🤷‍♀️. It‘s YA and a lot of kids enjoy sentimental stories like this, so I think it works well for its targeted audience. So for those of you who loved it, I‘m so glad you enjoyed it. I guess I‘m dead inside! 😂

Not my typical book,but I must admit I loved the character development and the story.
I never give a synopsis, but rather if it was worth my time. Yes, it was worth the time

The ending is very cute but how did Rufus DIEEEEE?! Anybody tell me pls. I am questioning that. I also don't like how they did random povs bc it's kind of boring. Overall 4.5 stars.

“Twelve hours ago I received the phone call telling me I‘m going to die today, and I‘m more alive now than I was then.” In a world where death is predicted and everyone knows when it‘s coming, 2 boys meet on an app to spend their last day together. Little do they know, while approaching death, they learn how to live. Didn‘t think I‘d like this at first, but the characters grew on me! Beautiful & reflective! How would you spend your End Day?

I picked this up on a whim after seeing a lot about it in my book groups on Facebook. It's not a book I would usually read, but I'm glad I picked it up. What would you do on your last day, if you knew it was coming?

In an alternate 2017, there‘s an entity called Deathcast, which contacts everyone who will die that day to tell them their impending fate. Mateo and Rufus are two teens who get the call and end up spending their last day together. I liked but didn‘t love this look at mortality and living life to the fullest. It does get a bit saccharine a couple times, which I think is hard to avoid with this material.

KristiAhlers That‘s one of the reasons I‘ve avoided reading this. That and I feel I‘d be needing the Kleenex too 3mo

Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio would get an unfortunate call telling them that they will die in the next 24 hrs. This leads to them meeting and living their lives to the fullest. They experienced love, pain and acceptance throughout their journey together. If you like books that has love and loss, then this is for you. The theme is "There's no life without death and no love without loss", Mateo never had a life while both learned to love.

Odrel.Penaflor (Continuation) Mateo never had a life before the call was bestowed upon him, he lived a life of caution not wanting to die. Then he met Rufus through an app Death-Cast provides. They helped each other conquer their fears, live a life they can be proud of. The rest is history, both fell inlove and accepted their unfortunate fate. 3mo

Questo libro è stato un regalo da parte del mio migliore amico. Lo devo ringraziare perché con questo suo pensiero ho potuto vivere insieme a Mateo e a Rufus quel 5 settembre del 2017.
La storia era molto scorrevole dato i capitoli molto brevi. Ho apprezzato molto come Silvera ha raccontato la giornata dai punti di vista dei due protagonisti in prima persona, così da spiegare cosa provavano, mentre per gli altri era in terza persona.

For me, it was most definitely They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera. I freaking SOBBED through the last 50 pages of that heartbreaker! 💔

Here I am. ignoring my ever growing TBR to read one that wasn‘t on my radar till yesterday. Ok. I love this book with my entire heart and soul. I connected with the characters right away so when they got taken away from me my heart felt empty. I can not say enough about this book and I think everyone needs to read it. I will be adding this book to my shopping cart immediately. 5⭐️

Very good read. Even though the title spoils what happens, the process of how the events occur is fulfilling in a sense of both despair and satisfaction similar to a murder mystery. The author writes foil in this book very well and I think it's really a nice way to see these characters in their raw lighting. It really shows the essentials of living since after all “No matter how we choose to live, we both die at the end.”

Considering how "anti-spoiler" I am, I didn't think I was going to enjoy a book that gives away the ending with the title. However, Silvera managed to make me care about these characters and the people around them so much that it didn't even matter that I already knew they couldn't survive to the last page.

Smrloomis Agreed! I enjoyed this book much more than I expected to 😊 5mo

In this story, people are given a day‘s notice of their deaths. We follow two teens who meet on their Last Days and spend it together. Interesting premise, but it was just too far fetched for me to relate.

This was sent to me via a #BookCrossing roundabout.

“Maybe it‘s better to have gotten it right and been happy for one day instead of living a lifetime of wrongs.”

I had a hard time choosing between rating this as a “pick” or as “so-so” it was somewhere in the middle, but I guess, overall, I enjoyed it enough. The dialogue felt a little silly to me and a lot of the story was too cheesy, but I like the overall message.

*Edit* I thought about it some more, it‘s a “so-so” for me

Just finished this book!! Would totally recommend to anyone. Adam Silvera reminds us that there's no life without death and no love without loss in this devastating but uplifting story about two boys.

A sweet and sad story, and these two MCs were so loveable. There totally needs to be a sequel on Death-casts backstory.

GondorGirl There is a new prequel book coming out later this year called 'The First One to Die in the End'. 7mo

I fell in love with the characters and their stories for the start. I can see the ending causing people to not give this book that good of a review but even the title gives it away. It‘s not a surprise what is going to happen. Knowing that I think the ending was actually done really well. It ends at a perfect spot and gives you that good conclusion to Mateo and Rufus story. I highly recommend this book

Completely destroyed me emotionally. I've had this book for roughly 2 years and never read past like the first eight chapters. Then this year starts and I pick it up and finish reading it in like 3 days and it made me a mess. But I love Rufus and Mateo so much, I so recommend this book.

I don‘t know how to process this. I‘m sad, but it‘s a hopeful kind of sad that came from watching these two realize so much within each other. A beautiful story about a terrifying concept; offers a very valuable lesson about making the most of our time by being authentically us. Was a bit confusing to cover so many characters that intertwine, but it added to the suspense. So much tragedy + death in one night.

This book is about a young guy named Mateo Torrez who get a call from death cast telling him he is going to day that day. It follows Mateo lives his last day to his full capability; making friends along the way. If you like heartwarming books that also have sad underlying hints this book is for you.
A theme from this book is that you have to live our life to the fullest because you never know when you might die.
Id give this book a 9/10

MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Sammy! This book made me cry! I was just needing a little bit more for the theme. 5.5/6 8mo

I finished this in the morning at school luckily I had a free period and when I tell you I CRIED! I was a sobbing mess near the end, luckily I got warm hugs from my friends. I cried for approximately 5 minutes straight. I'm not okay and I have a maths test in 10 minutes, but it's fine. It's not like I'm emotionally stable anyways. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Reggie Ughhh, this one ripped my heart out, too. Especially when he goes to tell his father goodbye. 😭hope you feel better. 9mo
