Hey there people in the galaxy! You might not know this, but I love Far From You by Tess Sharpe. I remember reading this book for the first time and getting to know Sophie and Mina, and their fate, one chapter at a time. Their story completely consumed me and I laughed, I cried, and I just felt every word on the page. This book is about pain, addiction, murder, and two best friends who barely had the chance to figure out their feelings for each other before it was too late.
Far From You can be compared to a Greek tragedy, this book does not have a happy ending and it’s not a romance. However, it’s a story about two teenage girls, their misfortune, and a girl’s strength to fight her addiction, find answers about a murder, and move on from tragedy. This book playlist celebrates the ups and downs of the journey this book takes you on. It’s sad, hopeful, and filled with bittersweet and complicated love. Don’t forget to add this book on Goodreads and buy it on Amazon, Book Depository, Barnes & Noble, or The Ripped Bodice.
This Far From You album and book playlist can be listened to on either Spotify or YouTube, whatever suits you best. I hope the voice of Tom Walker will take you back to the darkest moments of the novel and Lauren Aquilina’s Fools will take you back to those electric scenes between Sophie and Mina when everything was just right and yet so complicated. I hope you enjoy!
