Emotional and important - Am I Normal Yet? Review

Am I Normal Yet? (The Spinster Club #1)
by Holly Bourne
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
My rating: 4 hearts
Publication date: August 1, 2015
Publisher: Usborne Publishing Ltd.


All Evie wants is to be normal. She’s almost off her meds and at a new college where no one knows her as the girl-who-went-crazy. She’s even going to parties and making friends. There’s only one thing left to tick off her list…

But relationships are messy – especially relationships with teenage guys. They can make any girl feel like they’re going mad. And if Evie can’t even tell her new friends Amber and Lottie the truth about herself, how will she cope when she falls in love?

Announcement! New Co-Blogger!

Hi guys! I have some very exciting news to share today! The Reading Faery is getting a new blogger - Anna of @rattletheshelves. I have been following her on Instagram for years, and she has the most beautiful outdoors photos and she gives the best book recommendations, especially diverse books. We've also become friends over Instagram. I'm very excited to have Anna join me here at The Reading Faery, so let's give her a warm welcome!

About Anna
My superpower is that the more I read, the more my tbr grows. I read instead of doing things I probably should be doing and scroll down Instagram instead of reading. I'm passionate about a lot of things for about fifteen minutes and then I forget all about them. I genre-jump a bit but I focus mostly on YA.

Diverse fantasy - Belle Révolte ARC Review

Belle Révolte
by Linsey Miller
My rating: 4.5 hearts
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Publication date: February 4, 2020


Emilie des Marais is more at home holding scalpels than embroidery needles and is desperate to escape her noble roots to serve her country as a physician. But society dictates a noble lady cannot perform such gruesome work.

Annette Boucher, overlooked and overworked by her family, wants more from life than her humble beginnings and is desperate to be trained in magic. So when a strange noble girl offers Annette the chance of a lifetime, she accepts.

Emilie and Annette swap lives—Annette attends finishing school as a noble lady to be trained in the ways of divination, while Emilie enrolls to be a physician’s assistant, using her natural magical talent to save lives.

But when their nation instigates a frivolous war, Emilie and Annette must work together to help the rebellion end a war that is based on lies.
