Finding Audrey- Sophie Kinsella: Book Review!

Hi Guys,

It feels like ages since I've written one of my Zoella Book Reviews! To be honest, it has been because I normally just sit and pre-write loads at once! I've actually read a lot of this season' books but haven't written the reviews: I really need to get on with that! But for now, let's get on with the review at hand, of Finding Audrey...



Audrey has anxiety, which makes it hard for her to do normal things like go out of the house, or even making eye contact. Her brother Frank, seemingly oblivious to this, invites his friend Linus to their house. Linus, being unaware of Audrey's condition, tries to strike up conversation: making her feel normal and loved. The two form an unlikely friendship, but could it be more than that? Can Linus help Audrey's anxiety for good?

This book was amazing: it was absoloutely incredible! You can tell I loved it because I used a semi colon just to emphasise how great it was! I could honestly have read it all in one sitting. I would have re-read it but I lost my copy! One of the reasons that I would have given it another read would have been because some of the information about anxiety was so interesting and useful. If you didn't know, I struggle with anxiety and this book made me feel like I wasn't alone. It was so informative and such an accurate representation of what living with mental health problems are like.


I also really loved the characters. Although Audrey was the main, the way her relationships were built really helped to develop the other characters. Obviously everyone adored Linus, but I ended up falling in love with her crazy family! Audrey's mum was the best! But going back to Linus, he has got to be one of the sweetest love interests ever: what a cutie!   


And that's all I've got! Thank you so much for reading, I really hoped you enjoyed this post. As always, these are just my opinions so please leave yours in the comments. Also, don't forget to add me to your circles because I would love to have 150 followers by the end of the month! Have a great week!



Thanks for Reading,
Runnerella

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
