Dear reader,

I have talked again and again about Holly Bourne on my blog, so I don’t think it’s a surprise that I’ve decided to write yet another blog post about her.

As I did once, here is a series of mini reviews, but make it all about Holly Bourne.

β₯ Am I Normal Yet?Β (The Spinster Club, book 1)

I already talked a lot about this book on my blog, so I won’t necessarily repeat myself. I do have a whole review written about it if you ever fancy a look! All I will say is that it was my first Holly Bourne’s book and I was a bit scared because I wasn’t on board with the feminism in it but it made me feel so much better about my OCD and I’ll forever be thankful for it.

β₯ How Hard Can Love Be?Β (The Spinster Club, book 2)

This book represents the moment I fell in love with Holly Bourne’s work. The feminism in it was corrected and it was everything I love in a contemporary. Like seriously, it takes place in a summer camp, how cool is that? (I have a soft spot for summer camp stories, though I never went to one.) Plus I adore that the author is actually british and talks about life in England – as a French person I see myself more in those books rather than in the American ones. Anyway,Β How Hard Can Love Be? was super addictive, entertaining and basically it wasΒ everything.

β₯ What’s a Girl Gotta Do?Β (The Spinster Club, book 3)

This book was the last one I read from her for now and I couldn’t stop reading it. It was amazing. I still have no words for it. How can a book be so brilliant? The feminism was completely corrected, the girls did grew a lot throughout the series, and I loved everything. I loved how it was about friendship, about girls supporting girls, about making it right for every person out there. I really recommend this series for this book in particular (and forΒ How Hard Can Love Be?).

β₯Β It Only Happens in the Movies

If I have to be honest this book was my least favourite from her. Nothing shoking or else, I was just a tad disappointed by the end. However it was super entertaining, well written and oh so clever and original. I never read anything like it and it was definitely make you feel a lot and a lot of things. I never read a love story like this one before, and I would recommend it.

And here we go!

I hope that you loved it. I haven’t read every book Holly Bourne wrote for now, but that’s definitely a mission of mine.

Have you ever read anything by her? Would you want to?

Love always,
