A method of relaxation for me, aside from watching countless amounts of YouTube videos and settling down for a new episode of Love Island, anyone else watching that? I'm currently obsessed :), I like to do a spot of reading. I went shopping a couple of days ago with my Nanny and naturally I had to have a little look in Waterstones! To my delight they had a 'buy one get one half price' deals on, which I was very happy to see! I picked up 4 new books, and thought I would share my initial thoughts before I read them.
This book is about a popular, teenage girl whose face was burnt off in a electrical fire. She ends up getting a face transplant, and the book is all about the mental and physical struggles she goes through to deal with such a change. Of course, the book is all hypothetical but it really sucks the reader in to find out what happens next. One to be read soon.
If I Was Your Girl.
A slightly different subject matter for me, as this book is about transgenders and the struggles of finding social ground in a very judgmental world. If I Was Your Girl centers around Amanda, who previously was known as Andrew. Amanda settles into a new school in a new state with her new body, but soon her old past is brought up.
When We Collided.
The starter impression of this book is a teenage love story, but both boy and girl have issues within themselves. I have read the first chapter of this one, and so far I am really enjoying it! It bases around Vivi and Jonah, and the characters are really well written and thought about.
This book was a little difficult to get into for me personally, but then picks up and really becomes a fantastic read. This reminds me a little of We Were Liars (don't take that as an exact replica) in the way it withholds information until the very end and keeps the reader guessing throughout the whole book.
Do any of these books interest you?
