After realizing we have a lot of the same bookish opinions, I thought I’d make a thread

 

So,  what did you think of OCDANIEL

I really liked! It has been a while since I read it, could you please refresh my memory? I think I remember most of the plot.

SYNOPSIS THAT I FOUND ON AMAZON:

 

Daniel is the back-up punter for the Erie Hills Elephants. Which really means he’s the water boy. He spends football practice perfectly arranging water cups—and hoping no one notices. Actually, he spends most of his time hoping no one notices his strange habits—he calls them Zaps: avoiding writing the number four, for example, or flipping a light switch on and off dozens of times over. He hopes no one notices that he’s crazy, especially his best friend Max, and Raya, the prettiest girl in school. His life gets weirder when another girl at school, who is unkindly nicknamed Psycho Sara, notices him for the first time. She doesn’t just notice him: she seems to peer through him.

Then Daniel gets a note: “I need your help,” it says, signed, Fellow Star Child—whatever that means. And suddenly Daniel, a total no one at school, is swept up in a mystery that might change everything for him.

I thought the ending was adorable. I feel like despite his crush on Raya earlier on in the book, him and Sara are good for each other. They’re helping each other out with their mental illnesses

I really liked the ending as well. I personally have slight OCD. I could say be walking in a store and out of the corner of my eye see the title of something, then feel this urge to go back and read the title in its entirety and it bugs me if I don't. Also things at the grocery being turned or in the wrong place would bother me to the point of fixing them. I don't do that anymore. I've had slight OCD for as long as I can remember, now I hardly have any of these urges. I never felt like Daniel. Like how he felt family members would be hurt if he didn't do something. For me it's just this feeling of having to do something, and the urge is always unreasonable. But thankfully it hardly controls my everyday living.

I really liked her! Though I feel like I was irritated with her at one point but I'm not completely sure. I liked how her situation wasn't romanticized and that she wasn't a Manic Pixie Girl. At least I'm pretty sure. You?

I think the only thing I didn't like about the book was that Daniel never searched on the internet what he was going through. I remember reading that the author himself has OCD, and I thought that it was neat how he ended up writing a book based on his own experiences.

Yeah...I wasn’t too fond of that either

 

Yeah, I watched an interview with the author recently, and he talked about how Daniel was pretty much an autobiographical version of him at 13, so I thought that was neat

 

What did you think of the plot twist with the mystery?

I was suspecting that twist and I'm glad that he went that route. It was the better option and more impactful/real in my opinion. You?

What are some of your favorites?

I've read books 2 and 3. I saw the teaser trailer with Olaf talking to the audience. Is there a new one? I can't wait for season 2!!! I think this season will be more exciting because those books have never been on-screen before.
