November book reviews πŸ“–πŸ’•

Hey lovelies πŸ’•,

This will be a new theme in my blog posts which I’m happy about it. This will be my first book review post. I’m really excited about writing about books πŸ˜πŸ“– I’m into reading again and I love it. Every time I read I feel so happy and just feel as I’m in another world, my dream world. I know many of you know what I mean. I just read three amazing books these months which are: “Am I normal yet” by Holly Bourne, “The alchemist” by Paulo Coelho and “The sun and her flowers” by Rupi Kaur. I will make a review about them and rate them with stars. I will try to not have any spoilers in my reviews haha. I just wrote a little summary about what the book is about and if I liked it or not.

Am I Normal Yet – Holly Bourne

Summary:

This book is about Evie who is the main character in this book. She’s a 16 years old girl who has OCD and Generalised Anxiety Disorder. She’s going to college for the first time in her life. She had a tough time and not that she’s almost off her medication and feeling better she just want to be act and live as a normal girl. She don’t want anyone to know that she has these mental illnesses. She just wants to be normal and go to college, have fun and get a boyfriend. At college she find her two best friends which are Lottie and Amber. Together they make The Spinster Club. In these meetings they meet each other and talk about feminism πŸ‘­πŸ’œ. This is the first book of The Spinster Club book series from Holly Bourne.

My review:

I really loved this book so much. It was an easy book to read. I love Young Adult books so much. Holly Bourne is an amazing writer who writes about feminism and mental health in such a honest, vulnerable and raw way. The writing style is also funny and just feels so real. I really love that so much. When I’m reading the thoughts and feelings of Evie I can really understand it as I also suffer from anxiety. This is an amazing book about friendships, mental health and feminism. These three themes are really important and close to my heart. I also consider myself a feminist by heart. This book is realistic and was so beautiful to read. Now, I also know more how someone with OCD thinks and feels. I didn’t know that much about this mental illness. It’s more than just washing hands. It’s about rituals, being afraid of getting sick all the time and so much more. I encourage anyone to read this amazing book. You will not regret it.

Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I give this book 5 stars because it’s just a beautiful and easy book to read. The moment you began reading you are already in the story which I love. I also love books about feminism and mental health. I can’t wait to read the other books from this serie written by Holly Bourne about the Spinster Club.

The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho

Summary:

The book is about a young boy who’s called Santiago. He is a Spanish shepherd with sheeps and lives in the South of Spain, in Andalucia. He dreamt twice that he was in Egypt by the pyramids where he had to find a treasure. Santiago wants to travel the world to find out how the world works. Santiago travels from him homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an alchemist. The alchemist knows all the secrets of the world. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way. It’s a very long way.

My review:

This book was so beautiful. This book is all about finding your soul in this world and knowing what your purpose is in life. It makes me think of following your dreams in life. It’s a really touching story which makes you think of everything. We all have dreams in life and we have to make them come true. When you have a dream in your life the whole universe will make it come true. This book makes me also think of how important it is to listen to our hearts because they never lie. Always listen to your heart and let your life be guide by your heart β€οΈπŸ™. Your heart always know which direction to go in life.

Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I give this book 5 stars because it was such an amazing book to read. I love Paulo Coelho and I really would love to read more books of him. It’s also an easy book to read. This book made me think of my life and my dreams. This book made me feel inspired, positive and happy to follow all my dreams in life and to make them true. It’s all about living your best life according to your values.

The Sun and Her Flowers – Rupi Kaur

Summary:

This is a poetry book. Her first book was “Milk and Honey”. I still need to buy and read that book. This is her second book and it’s a collection of her poetry. The pages are illustrated by Rupi Kaur. The Sun and Her flowers is a poetry book devided into five chapters. It’s a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising & blooming. It’s a celebration of love in all its forms πŸŽ‰πŸ’•.

My review:

Aaaah this poetry book was so good! Just wow. Every poem I’ve read and every drawing I saw was just so beautiful. I could feel the words in my head and understand the emotions and thoughts. Her poetry is just so amazing. It was also easy to read. I love poetry but I don’t like to read really difficult poems that I don’t understand. These poems were really easy to understand and were all so amazing. Her poetry is so honest, real and pure 😍. She can also draw so beautifully. They pictured very well the poem on the page.

Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I also give this book 5 stars because it’s an amazing book full of beautiful poems and drawings. Rupi Kaur is an amazing writer. Her poems are easy to understand, so raw and so honest. I really love her so much and I can’t wait to read the first book of her “Milk and Honey”. Hopefully, I will be able to meet her one day too. I hope that she will come to Europe for a poetry show.

Thank you all for reading my first book review post. I hope you all liked this blog post. Maybe, I will write more of them ☺️. I wil keep reading good books haha. Did anyone of you read any of these books? Which one was your favourite and why? Do you also love reading as much as I do? Let me know in the comments. I would love to know your thoughts. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love πŸ’•,

xoxo Christina

  1. Yaaaay oh my goodness how exciting !! BRING ON THE BOOK REVIEWS. One of my constant goals is to always be reading but sometimes I get so sidetracked and stop reading for a couple of months at a time and I HATE it. I have milk and honey but haven’t bought the sun and her flowers yet, I wasn’t sure if I would like it as I’m still divided on milk and honey but I’m sure I’ll still end up buying it at some point! So glad you loved all of these books. I’m excited for more of these posts! xxx
