Amy & Roger's Epic Detour Review

Definitely 5 Stars!!

I Know What I Want To Do... I Want To Go On An Epic Detour... My Destinations Aren't Clear But I Have A Pretty Good Idea Of The Places I Want To See.

Wow, I Have A Hug Crush On This Book. It Was Great And I Loved Every Bit Of Detail Found Between Pages 1 - 343. Everything That Morgan Matson Included In This Story Was Brilliant. The Playlists Not Only Have Some Great Songs On Them, But They Will Definitely Blow My iTunes Budget Out Of The Water For The Next Few Months. I Plan On Owning Just About All Off Roger's Songs. The Menu And Food Receipts Were Clever Additions... Whenever I See Cream Soda And Root Beer, I'll Remember Roger And Amy. The Big Bear Itinerary Made Me Want To Go On A Hike, And I Don't Even Mountain Hike, But I Want To Do That Now. The Scrapbook Pages Were Priceless, And Overall Amy & Roger's Epic Detour Was Absolute Perfection!

This Story Has One Of The Best Set Of Secondary Characters I Have Ever Read. They Made Roger And Amy's Detour Inspiring, Exciting And Enjoyable. Bronwyn And Her Gift To Amy Was Endearing. I Loved How She Took Away Amy's Camouflage And Gave Her Back A Bit Of Confidence. So Pretty Much I Loved This Book. Can You Tell??? I Loved It To Pieces! I Suggest You Stop What You Are Doing Now And Read This Book. It's The Best Fictional Journey I've Been On In A Long Time... So Go On... Go On A Detour, You Won't Regret It! :)

Can't Wait To Read The Rest Of Morgan Matson's Book, Second Chance Summer And Since You've Been Gone. Can't Wait To Read More Of What She Has To Offer. I'm A Instant Fan And Can't Wait To Start Reading More Of Her Brilliance!

All The Bright Places Book Review

Every Once In A While A Story Comes Along That Feels Like It Was Written For You. Like You Were Just Meant To Read It. One That Knocks You On Your Ass. As Dramatic Or Cheesy As It Sounds, A Book That Touches You On A Very Deep Level. All The Bright Places Is One Of Those Books.


All The Bright Places Is A Heart-Breaking Novel About Life And Death, The Bitterness Of Losses And Ability To Gain Strength From People You Love, About Enjoying All The Precious Moments Of Life, Even When It Seems That Nothing Can Bring You Happiness. It Will Warm Your Soul, Then Tear It Apart And Settle In The Brightest Place Of Your Heart.


The Story Is Told From Multiple Points Of Views: Finch's And Violet's - Two Teenagers Who Need Help To Survive In This World. The Book Hooks You From The First Chapter; Finch Climbs To The Bell Tower And Considers Jumping From It. We Don't Know Why Exactly, But It Is Evident That Something Isn't Right With Him; Racing Thoughts, Chaotic Speech, Weird Behaviour. He Says That He Must Remain Awake, Because Sometimes He Passes Out For Months -- But Why? The Main Theme Of This Book Is To Find A Way To Enjoy Life Even In The Dark Times, When It Seems That There Is No Point In Your Existence And It Would Be Much Easier To Give Up. I Think The Author Perfectly Coped With The Task; This Story Will Not Leave Anyone In Different. I Was Bombarded With Strong Emotions. I Am Not A Sentimental Person, But This Book Just Tore Me To Pieces. For Me, This Is The Best Book Of The Year. Read It Guys, You Won't Regret It.

Eleanor & Park Book Review

Through Out The Six Week Holidays, I Read Eleanor & Park By Rainbow Rowell.


This Book Was Amazing, Heart Warming And Heart Breaking All At The Same Time. I Wasn't Expecting To Care About The Characters And Their Relationship As Much As I Did But I Was Completely Caught Up In The Story. It's Told In 3rd Person And Past Tense, Which I Sometimes Have Trouble Connecting With, But Not In This Case. I Feel Like I Really Know Eleanor And Park, And I Love Them Both Separately But I Especially Love Them Together. It Seemed Like Their Relationship Shouldn't Work, But It Does, Really Well. I Was Grinning Like An Idiot While Reading This Because I Was Just So Giddy Over Their Budding Romance. I Could Feel How Much They Cared For Each Other Like It Was Oozing Off The Page.


Overall, I Loved This Book -- The Characters, The Romance, The Writing And Just The Way Everything Unfolded So Beautifully And It Felt So Real. One Of The Best Contemporary Novels, I've Read In A While. Definitely Recommended!


Hope You Enjoyed This Blog Post And If You Ever Happen To Be Near Or In A Book Store, I Would Definitely Recommend Picking Up A Copy Of This Book.

Best Friends.

Hey Guys, Today I Wanted To Talk About Best Friends And How Much They Might Mean To You. I Really Miss My Best Friends, We Haven't Really Spoke In A While And I Just Them Both To Know This...






We Have Been Friends For Nearly 5 Years. I Just Want You To Know How Important You Are To Me. I Know I Haven't Said That Before, I Thought I Would Make My Point Clear. I Can't Stress It Enough That You Really Are My Best Friends. You Both Have A Heart Of Gold And A Personality That Should Be Cherished. You Have Such An Amazing Effect On Me And My Life Daily. You Make Me Laugh When All I Want To Do Is Cry. You, Are My Best Friend. You're Like My Brother In A Way. I Have Lost Friends Before But I Hope That You Aren't Going To Be One Of Them.


I'm Glad We've Finally Figured Out Because I Don't Think I Could Make It Through The Rest Of Secondary School Without You. Best Of Luck In All That You Do, And Remember That I Am Always Here For You No Matter What.

Tanya Burr's Book - Love Tanya

I Don't Usually Go For Autobiography Type Books However, I Am A Big Fan Of YouTubers. It Was Written Marvellously And I Felt Like I Was Really Connecting With Tanya In A Way. She Is One Of The Most Positive People I Have Ever Watched And Read About And That Was Portrayed Really Well In This Book. My Favourite Chapters Were Baking & Recipes, Skin Care Essentials & YouTube. This Book Has Helped Me, Gave Me Tips And I Must Say... I Shed A Tear! And Nothing Sad Was Even Mentioned. While I Was Reading This Book, I Couldn't Stop Reading It. I Literally Had To Restrain Myself From Reading It, I Didn't Want The Book To End. I Recommend This Book To People Who Are Fans Of Tanya, This Book Goes In Depth Of  Tanya's Life Before And After YouTube. I Really Take Care Of My Books, So I Don't Really Want To Write In It. So I Thought That I Would Answer The Questions And/Or Write The Lists As Blog Posts Instead.


Hope You Enjoyed This Blog Post And I Also Hope To Be Blogging More In The Summer Holidays. I Might Be Going To Rhodes, Greece In The Week We Have Off School In October.

Books I Have But Still Need To Read

Geek Girl: All That Glitters by Holly Smale



Harriet Manners Knows Many Things:

- Toilet Roll Was Invented By The Chinese In 600 AD.
- A Comet's Tail Always Points Away From The Sun.
- The Average Healthy Heart Beats 70 Times Per Minute. Even When It's Broken.

But She Knows Nothing About Making New Friends At Sixth Form. Or Why Even Her Old Friends Seem To Be Avoiding Her. And She Knows Even Less About Being A Glittering Supermodel Success. Which She Now Is - Apparently.

Has Harriet's Time To Shine Like A Star Finally Arrived, Or Is She About To Crash And Burn?



We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler



What If You Grew Up To Realise That You Father Had Used You Childhood As An Experiment?

Rosemary Doesn't Talk Very Much, And About Certain Things She's  Silent. She Had A Sister, Fern, Her Whirlwind Other Half, Who Vanished From Her Life In Circumstances She Wishes She Could Forget. And It's Been Ten Years Since She Last Saw Her Beloved Brother, Lowell.

Now At College, Rosemary Starts To See She Can't Go Forward Without Going Back, Back To The Time When, Aged Five, She Was Sent Away From Home To Her Grandparents And Returned To Find Fern Gone.



When God Was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman



This Book Is About A Brother And Sister.

It's A Book About Childhood And Growing Up, Friendships And Families, Triumph And Tragedy And Everything In Between.

More Than Anything, It's A Book About Love In All It's Forms.



I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

Jude And Her Twin, Noah Are Close Until A Tragedy Drives Them Apart. Now They Are Barley Speaking - And Both Falling For Boys They Can't Have. Love's Complicated.
