Rosie Loves Jack | Mel Darbon
post image
Pickpick

This is a beautiful book, told from the perspective of Rosie, a teenager with Down Syndrome. Rosie runs away from home to be with her boyfriend Jack who her father has forbidden her from seeing, and the novel follows her journey as she tries to make sense of a confusing and frightening world. An inspiring book, and well worth the read 😊

Rant | Alfie Crow

I've just been up to my local library and they were advertising a 'summer reading challenge' I was really excited as previously all the reading challenges had been for under 12s.

The challenge? Reading for 6 minutes a day and sharing it on social media using their hashtag.

I'm not sure why but this annoyed me...6 minutes of reading is a challenge?

Does anyone else agree or is it just me? 😂

Sorry for the low-key rant...

Branwen Only reading six minutes a day seems to be setting the bar really low! 😂 3mo
Megabooks Really really low! I don‘t think that‘s going to stop summer slide! 3mo
jb72 Wow that‘s super low! I wonder why six minutes and not ten or fifteen? Very strange. I wish our library had a summer reading program for adults. 3mo
See All 10 Comments
suzie.reads I guess if you don't read at all then reading for 6 minutes is 6 times what you normally do. Not alot for me but for some it can be 😁 3mo
emilyrose_x @suzie.reads Yes, I suppose it is good for someone who doesn't read at all...I think the whole thing about sharing 6 minutes of reading on social media seemed a bit ridiculous though 😂 3mo
Soubhiville Yeah that seems like a throw away just to give the adults a little something. Our library wasn‘t much better: read ONE BOOK! And get a pin. That‘s it. 😐 3mo
sprainedbrain Wow... 6 minutes is not much. I read that much before my morning shower. 😂 3mo
Scochrane26 That‘s not a good challenge. My library has been doing 5 hrs reading/listening or 3hrs reading/attending a library program for yrs. you‘re allowed 3 entries a week. They have good prizes from a random drawing each week. That‘s the adult summer reading. Not sure what the children‘s one is, but I know it‘s similar. (edited) 3mo
KathyWheeler 6 minutes? I guess that‘s better than nothing, but it‘s a weird number. I wonder what the rationale for choosing that number was. 3mo
agrondin44 That is indeed really low... but kids do not read much anymore... I am a teacher and it is a struggle to have them read... so sad.

emilyrose_x @limada I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either (very helpful I know...) I think the overall idea of the book was really good, but I felt some sections were maybe a little forced. A good read though, but I would definitely class it as YA! 3mo
limada @emilyrose_x Thanks. That's about what I expect when I pick up a book based on the cover. ☺ I figure if nothing else it should be a quick-ish read. 3mo

This was my 35th book of 2019 and it was too incredible to go without giving it a mention.

It is a young adult novel, but I think that anyone will enjoy it! It was the sort of book that, although it wasn't necessarily sad, it left a lump in my throat for the entire thing.

It's the best book I have read in a while! :)
