I saw this shirt while shopping a few weeks ago, I should have bought it!

The first book of Gabrielle Zevin’s that I read waaaaaaaaaaaay back when I first started writing Book Coffee Happy was Young Jane Young. I loved it (you can read the synopsis and my review HERE…one of my verrrry first blog posts). A few years later I read The Storied Life of AJ Fikry which I declared to be the very best book that I have ever read…EVER. That book is so amazing (you can read the synopsis and my review HERE).

Goodreads Synopsis of Tomorrow, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow {Gabrielle Zevin}:

On a bitter-cold day, in the December of his junior year at Harvard, Sam Masur exits a subway car and sees, amid the hordes of people waiting on the platform, Sadie Green. He calls her name. For a moment, she pretends she hasn’t heard him, but then, she turns, and a game begins: a legendary collaboration that will launch them to stardom. These friends, intimates since childhood, borrow money, beg favors, and, before even graduating college, they have created their first blockbuster, Ichigo. Overnight, the world is theirs. Not even twenty-five years old, Sam and Sadie are brilliant, successful, and rich, but these qualities won’t protect them from their own creative ambitions or the betrayals of their hearts.

Spanning thirty years, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Venice Beach, California, and lands in between and far beyond, Gabrielle Zevin’s Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is a dazzling and intricately imagined novel that examines the multifarious nature of identity, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play, and above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love. Yes, it is a love story, but it is not one you have read before. 


Omg this book.

It’s so BEAUTIFULLY written.

I must admit that I was hesitant to pick this one up due to the subject…I am NOT by any means a “gamer” (although I must admit that I am FANTASTIC at Mario Kart). I am here to report that if you are at all hesitant as I was, READ THIS BOOK. I promise that not being an actual gamer didn’t hinder my understanding or my love for this book even the slightest bit. If anything, it piqued my interest and made me realize how brilliant game designers truly are.

Do you follow Book Coffee Happy on Instagram? Here are some of the Instastories that I shared while reading (devouring?) this beautiful book:

A beautifully written book in every single way. Stop whatever you are doing and get your hands on a copy. Stat.

Every single thing about this book is pure magic. The beautiful writing, the in depth characters representing SO MANY, the complicated relationships, the overall story (and the stories that fall within those stories)…all simply magic. I absolutely savored every word in this book and never wanted it to end.

Bottom Line:

I officially now declare this to be one of my all time favorite books.

I won’t be posting here for a bit…my family is going on a little vacation for the next week! Follow me on Instagram…I’ll be posting stories while on the trip 🙂

  1. I had this book on hold at my library for forever and after I read your review, I became so impatient, waiting and waiting for what seemed like an eternity. Then it was finally my turn a week ago! So, so, so excited. And then…. ugh. I really enjoyed the beginning, their reunion and the time they spent making their first video game. Then too many new characters were introduced and the story within the story became annoying. I found myself skimming the last half of the book just hoping something would happen to regain my interest. And it did not. The writing was fantastic, I loved the character development and I really enjoyed the quirkiness of Sam and Sadie. I’m really sad – the first book I ever read by her was Young Jane Young (after I read about it on your blog) and it is one of my favorite books – I recommend it to everyone. Since I read that, I have not enjoyed any other book she has written. She is a great writer though and I wish I found her other books to be interesting.
