Reading about rape is a hard thing, but sometimes so necessary to remind myself of the battle I've won. Speak is another one of those books that won over a special place in my heart.
April is the month of FUN AND FUN AND FUN - especially when it comes to readathons, it seems. I'm combining my own contemporary challenge with the Magical Readathon to get my OWL's - so let's see what I'll be trying to read!
We're halfway throughout March which means it's time to take a look at April's reading challenge - ContemporApril!
Contemporary read, baked goods on the cover, mention of a cafe and.. there's a bookstore involved as well? HOW COULD I RESIST?
I don't usually watch movies before having read the book, but this one was different. Trying to resist a cozy, fluffy movie-mood is a hard thing to do sometimes and with so many people raving about the movie, I succumbed. Then I ended up desperately wanting the books, bought them eventually and was so, so lucky to pull the first one from my January Jam Jar!
Looking back on 2018, I read a whole lot.. But what are the best ten contemporary books I read? Find out here!
I honestly cannot believe I waited this long to read The Upside of Unrequited. It's not like I didn't want to read it, I simply didn't get around to it? Other books kept distracting me and now I'm blaming all those books for keeping me from this precious, little gem. I fell in love, you guys.
