* The book discussed in this post has been gifted by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
David Levithan…not a book goes by when i do not love your writing more and more. One of my favourite authors, i cannot help put pick up absolutely everything that David has published. More so, when he co-authors. I admittedly have never read a Jennifer Niven, and i think Take Me With You When You Go has pursuaded me to pick up her previous books.
It’s not often i choose to write about a memoir on the blog, because i always find it a strange thing to talk about someones life critically. However, after finishing Uncomfortable Labels i know i haven’t heard as much about this book as i should have done and i think it’s wonderful. If this post helps one person pick up this book, i’ve done my job.
If you’re up to date with our posts, you’d know that my boyfriend bought me a subscription to Mr B’s Emporium for my birthday this year. That’s a book a month tailored to my tastes and hand picked by a member of staff. I’ve been so excited about this gift, and at the beginning of the month i got my first book in the post, Guard Your Heart by Sue Divin!
This post isn’t necessarily going to be a review, however you might take some of my opinions to be a drastic ‘please don’t pick up this book!’ There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Florence Given recently, and whereas I’m not completely clued up on it, before this I had seen her book becoming more and more popular. When I found it on Kindle for 99p as opposed to the usual hardback price, i figured i’d give it a go.
In a time that feels particularly right, i recently picked up Rules For Being A Girl. I’ve had it sat on my shelf for some time, and i was drawn to it at the moment with everything happening surrounding women’s rights and safety. This story is a YA novel about a girl in a very different situation than is being discussed in the media at the moment. But the message is still incredibly important.
*Thank you to Penguin for sending me a copy of Lock The Doors for review.
Before this book landed on my door step, i had heard very little about it, and now i can only question why. Lock The Doors kept me hooked, has a great range of characters and discusses some really indepth topics. Here are some of the reasons i think you should pick up Lock The Doors.
