5 stars

I absolutely loved Am I Normal Yet? I thought it was just incredibly well written and was honest about mental health. Which we need more of in today’s world. I am so happy with the surge of YA books featuring various forms of mental health hitting the shelves recently. Showing teens that its okay to feel this way and will hopefully gets them to seek help.

‘All Evie wants is to be normal. She’s almost off her meds and at a new college where no one knows her as the girl-who-went-crazy. She’s even going to parties and making friends. There’s only one thing left to tick off her list…

But relationships are messy – especially relationships with teenage guys. They can make any girl feel like they’re going mad. And if Evie can’t even tell her new friends Amber and Lottie the truth about herself, how will she cope when she falls in love?’Summary from Goodreads

“It was like I’d climbed Everest, had the summit in my sight, the flag in my hand, all ready to pierce it into the top of the mountain and say, “Whoopdedoo, I made it,” and then an avalanche from out of nowhere swept me right back to the bottom of the mountain again.”

February Wrap Up & March TBR

So this has been delayed a little, mostly because I wasn’t sure what to write for the beginning of the month, a book review or a tag. Then I stumbled across a lot of bloggers posting monthly wrap ups, which I thought was a great idea and something I’m definitely thinking about doing continuously throughout the year.
