Mini reviews | OCD edition

Dear reader,

I have now decided that I will post my book reviews every two weeks on Sundays. As I enjoy reading  (I read a lot of book reviews) and writing some, I really want to get back to it. It’s always so nice to read some book recommendations online to figure out what to read next.

Today, I will share four different mini book reviews that deal with OCD. Mental health is a very important subject for me and as I suffer from OCD I thought I could share with you all some of the latest books I read about it. They will all be short so this blog post won’t be too long. So without further ado, let’s dive into it!

Review: Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne

The plot

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?

Review: Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

THE PLOT

After a shout-out from one of the Internet’s superstar vloggers, Natasha “Tash” Zelenka finds herself and her obscure, amateur web series, Unhappy Families, thrust into the limelight: She’s gone viral.

Her show is a modern adaptation of Anna Karenina—written by Tash’s literary love Count Lev Nikolayevich “Leo” Tolstoy. Tash is a fan of the forty thousand new subscribers, their gushing tweets, and flashy Tumblr GIFs. Not so much the pressure to deliver the best web series ever.

And when Unhappy Families is nominated for a Golden Tuba award, Tash’s cyber-flirtation with Thom Causer, a fellow award nominee, suddenly has the potential to become something IRL—if she can figure out how to tell said crush that she’s romantic asexual.

Tash wants to enjoy her newfound fame, but will she lose her friends in her rise to the top? What would Tolstoy do?
