Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon | Book Review

Okay. This book is fantastic. I feel like my heart has been shattered into a million pieces. I'm not over exaggerating.

Everything, Everything follows a teenager called Madeline Whittier who is allergic to the world. She has a rare disease known as SCID (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency). She cannot leave her house because the risks are too severe. That is, until Olly comes along and provokes the thoughts in Madeline's mind about how much she is losing out.

Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy | Book Review

Okay, I just want to address the fact that I'm writing this literally just after I finished reading the book. I feel like I'm typing so fast because I want to get everything I feel into this blog post. I just can't control my feelings right now. Hang on, let me breathe for a second. 
Alright, I'm good.

You Deserve A Drink Book Review

I am so excited for today's post, because it features one of the best women on this planet - Mamrie Hart!
If you've been hiding under a cardboard box since 2011, Mamrie is a YouTuber that hosts a channel called "You Deserve A Drink" and it is nothing but hilarious!

As the cover mentions, this book is basically a collection of Mamrie's life experiences, from losing an eye contact while pole dancing, to setting herself on fire at a Flaming Lips concert!

Binge Book Review

Okay, I have kind of a lot to talk about when it comes to Binge. The first thing - it's an autobiography written by Tyler Oakley, a YouTuber who I've watched for probably almost 3 years. I haven't watched every single video he has made, but I've always loved his personality, and his passion to help everyone else. The book follows experiences, whether good or bad, that he has gone through during his life.
Also, let's discuss the fact that I got a freaking signed edition??? Ahh, I am so excited!

Me and Earl and The Dying Girl Book Review

This book follows a socially introvert male, Greg Gaines, and his best friend Earl. They spend their time making movies, based on those they have already seen. Everything is 'normal' and time passes by just how Greg likes it, until his mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel, who has been diagnosed with leukemia. As much as Greg does not agree with this, he must obey. And he does. But when Greg and Earl find out that Rachel cannot recover from this illness, they decide that making one of their movies for her would be a good idea, but is it really? Let's just say, it develops a turning point in each of their lives.

Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter

This. Book. Is. Beautifully. Optimistic.

I have been watching Louise's (Sprinkle of Glitter) YouTube videos for over 2 years now. I can hand on my heart say that she is my favourite person to watch. Louise's channel focuses on a variety of topics such as beauty, life and being happy - everything I want to know more about. And with Louise, I can never get enough of it. She manages to portray a realistic lifestyle and show how everyone is able to be happy with what they have, no matter how big or little. And that is what this book is about - and more.

Hollow City

Yes, I'm only getting around to reading Hollow City now. I've been really bad with buying books lately, so I get excited and just read the first one in my reach.
I don't even know where to begin with this book. It is insanely beautiful. I'll start with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Book #1).
