Review: White Bodies

White Bodies White Bodies by Jane Robins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh geez.
I read this in one sitting. I hated it, I loved it.
It messed with my head so much I had to keep reading.

I know! Doesn’t make sense right?!

Why didn’t I read this sooner.

It’s creepy, it’s darn right out of this world illogically creepy yet I can’t help but have liked it.

I’m not sure what that says about me.

Go in with caution.

Review: The Girl Who Had No Fear

The Girl Who Had No Fear The Girl Who Had No Fear by Marnie Riches
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh I hadn’t realised this was a series.
But I loved it.

I’d taken a break from Detective/Police procedures but this ones been on my backlist for ages.

Gay men are being murdered. Why? Who?

Then we have something g coming to the forefront on the Detective.

This is a Serial killer or is it?

Thoroughly enjoyed getting my teeth into this one.

Review: The Pull of the Stars

The Pull of the Stars The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A most definite absolute 100% five stars from me.

A gorgeous book set over just three days. An overworked Midwife helping pregnant women during their labour. During an epidemic.
Not all goes well.

A lovely volunteer joins her, what would she have done without her.

This is set in Ireland while the flu epidemic was going on.

It was so detailed and so heartwarming but sad in some places. It definitely takes you on a journal.

These people became known to me, they were real.

The ending shocked me and most definitely made me cry.

Review: The New Girl (Elle

The New Girl (Elle The New Girl (Elle by Kid Toussaint
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a good first comic book that deals with mental health that I’ve read.

Mental health comes with stigma, and it shouldn’t. It’s an illness like any other and nothing to fear, what is fearful is the unknown when you don’t understand something.

This young girl was now in another school.

But what happens when they see her personality change?
Her rapid mood swings are depicted in full different varying pictorial colours of Elle. I thought that a brilliant touch to depict each part of her various mood swings.

The one that stood out to me was the little one with oversized glasses on she brought a lot of humour to a serious subject.

Highly recommend for YA.
