Book Review: Running Like a Girl by Alexandra Heminsley

I gave "Running Like a Girl" 4 stars on my first read and I think I enjoyed it even more second time round. I'd recommend this book for anyone who wants to run, or is thinking about running, but needs that extra push to get out the door - 5 stars!


Book Review: Girl A

"Girl A" is a difficult read, detailing the horrors that these girls had to endure, so certainly isn't for the faint-hearted. While it's hard to review something so real and so terrible, I'd give this book a strong 4 stars.

Book Review: I Am, I Am, I Am by Maggie O’Farrell

Maggie O'Farrell has bravely allowed us all to see a snapshot of her life, but rather than show us the best parts, she's shown us the times when things could have easily ended differently - her near death experiences. I liked this collection but I wasn't amazed by it and lost interest somewhere in the middle. It's 3 stars for this brave and thought-provoking memoir.

Book Review: Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig

A quick, enjoyable read which I hope can remind those in need that they are not alone in feeling how they do. As an important account of one young man's struggle with mental illness, this is not something I can 100% relate with, yet "Reasons to Stay Alive" is beautifully written with inspirational quotes on every page and I'm giving it 3 stars.
