Paperweight | Meg Haston

Paperweight is a hard-hitting contemporary YA that looks at eating disorders, toxic friendships and grief. Although it was a very difficult book for me to read, I'm glad that I did as it had an amazing depiction of therapy and recovery.

#maybookflowers most anticipated May read!

I've been meaning to read this for a while (because hello feminism) but there has been a lot of controversy on twitter about the editor and her acephobic comments and general lack of knowledge. I won this book before that, so I'm going to read it and do an in-depth review of what is good, and what went wrong. I'm hoping it'll be helpful!

I got this wonderful book journal for my birthday, so obviously I had to fill in some of my most anticipated books of this year. Why can't it be October already?!!

Also, do you think I should fill in the books I've already read this year, or just start from now? As much as I love the idea of having every book I've read written down, it might be a bit of effort...

Alison Bechdel's slightly lesser known memoir, Are You My Mother? I thought it was less interesting than Fun Home, unfortunately. And it contained a lot of psychoanalysis, which just isn't my thing.

Bibliogeekery I also wanted to like this one more than I did and I'm a psychotherapist, so you'd think I'd dig all the psychoanalysis! #queerbooks 3y

Lindy I love this so much I've read it 3 times. Something new in it each time. 3y
