Contemporary Conversations: What’s in a Gif?

contemporary conversations

This week in Contemporary Conversations, we are rereading our favorite books! I’ll be rereading and posting the reviews of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins! Now, I’m participating in the Rereads Challenge, where I pick 3-5 books and can only use gifs to review/summarize them! No words allowed – except for summaries.

barney-more-challengesLet’s begin!

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Greenthe fault in our stars


Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

anna and the french kiss


Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend. But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

3. Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo

love and other perishable items


From the moment 15-year-old Amelia begins work on the checkout at Woolworths she is sunk, gone, lost…head-over-heels in love with Chris. Chris is the funny, charming, man-about-Woolies, but he’s 21, and the 6-year difference in their ages may as well be 100. Chris and Amelia talk about everything from Second Wave Feminism to Great Expectations and Alien but will he ever look at her in the way she wants him to? And if he does, will it be everything she hopes?

4. Sixteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton



Anna is dreading another tourist-filled summer on Dune Island that follows the same routine: beach, ice cream, friends, repeat. That is, until she locks eyes with Will, the gorgeous and sweet guy visiting from New York. Soon, her summer is filled with flirtatious fun as Anna falls head over heels in love. But with every perfect afternoon, sweet kiss, and walk on the beach, Anna can’t ignore that the days are quickly growing shorter, and Will has to leave at the end of August. Anna’s never felt anything like this before, but when forever isn’t even a possibility, one summer doesn’t feel worth the promise of her heart breaking.

That’s a wrap! That was a lot of fun 😀 I can’t wait to see what others say. Have you guys read these books? What did you think?

  2. TFiOS: ACCURATE. I think the rainbows and sunshine one from Colbert is my favorite when talking about Anna, but the one you picked is great too!
