ABBBC October

  I know, Im sorry its a week late! October has been the busiest month for me this year and I just had no time to read. This months book of choice was Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. I have been seeing a lot of different things about this recently to the point where a few weeks ago the trailer for the film fell into my inbox. I thought it would be quite a pick me up for all those people with the October blues. When I finally did get round to picking it up it literally took me a  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was Randy Pausch The Last Lecture. This is a book I think I have read easily half a dozen times and each time I just want to start at the beginning again and start over. A lot of professionals talk about giving one last lecture or one last book and normally it is a book of wisdom or what they wishes they had done. For the reader or viewer it’s nice, but that’s it. It is more for the person giving the last lecture than  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k by Sarah Knight. This month again was a reader request and not a normal average book like we have been reading. This is a self help book. The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k is literally what it says in the title. A book that teaches you to stop giving a f**k about certain things in life that are beyond your control. Stop giving a F what other people think of you, stop  ...

ABBBC July

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow. This month was another reader request. I felt at first that maybe we would need longer than a month for this one but I think it turned out actually not too bad. Girl in Pieces is about Charlotte Davies, a teenage girl who has already been through a lot at so younger and uses cutting as a way of escape. She enters a facility at the beginning of the book when she heals her wonders but  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider. I didn’t really know what to expect from this book as it was a reader request this month, however, I was pleasantly surprised at how readable the book was. This book was all about Lane who goes to Latham House, a sanatorium for teens suffering from an incurable strain of tuberculosis. Lane meets Sadie, who he evidently already has met before, they fall in love but Sadie is  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was  My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga. When I chose this book for the club I didn’t really know much about it so I didn’t really know what to expect. This book is actually being turned into a film which should be quite interesting Firstly I want to start with the title ‘My heart and other black holes’. I don’t feel the title has much of a resemblance to the story and I felt there could  ...

Welcome back to the ABB Book Club. This months book of choice was The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr. I thought this book would be a great one to read as firstly it already had great reviews but also because it was meant to be very different to the books we had already read. Life has a funny way of showing us exactly what we should be grateful for and I feel life has done that through this book. The One Memory of Flora Banks is written beautifully. I was intrigued by the premise of  ...

ABBBC March

Welcome back to the ABBBC. This months book of choice was Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert- the writer of Eat, Pray, Love. I thought this was a great choice of book for this month because it is a really self-motivating/ ‘it’s going to be ok’ type of book. I’ve been seeing a lot of people possibly needing to read this and i thought it may help. Sometimes it is a simple thing like a book that can change your perspective of life. Maybe it’s the way the author writes  ...

ABBBC February

Welcome back to the ABBBC. This months book of choice was If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo. I thought that this was a very important book. It fills a gap that needed to be filled. It is important, eye-opening, thought-provoking and emotional. I simply couldn’t wait to read the ending. If I Was Your Girl is a book like no other. It is nothing like i have ever read before. I think the book dives into a real apt topic of this century. Transgender. But, what is Transgender? Google  ...

ABBBC January- All The Bright Things Review

Welcome back to the ABBBC. This months book of choice was All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. A complete page turner. I simply could not put this book down. I was first drawn to this book by the vibrant front cover, after a quick read of the blurb i couldn’t wait to get stuck in. So this book is the story of a girl who learns to live from a boy who wants to die. The tale of two teenagers who’s lives although totally different are kind of the same. Suicidal thoughts and  ...
