3 Must Reads #1


I don't read all that often, but when I do I always wonder why I don't do it more often. I thought I'd start a little series called 3 must reads, of books I've absolutely loved and would recommend to anyone.

I've been watching Will's YouTube channel for around two years now, and his videos are probably some of my favourite on the entire internet. When I heard he was coming out with a book, I knew I'd have to buy it. Essentially, Will asked his viewers questions over six months, all about relationships. Breakups, crushes, you get the idea. All the letters that he received were compiled into a book to make This Modern Love. I honestly felt all the emotions under the sun reading through this, one minute I'd be smiling, the next I'd be sobbing. Its amazing and I couldn't recommend it enough.

I previously wrote a whole review on this book, which you can read here. I read this book whilst on holiday in the summer, and I couldn't put it down. A girl called Lennie is grieving, and she has two boys on her hands. I won't say much more as I don't want to ruin it, but its an amazing read. I love how Jandy Nelson writes, its so beautiful. Would highly recommend.

This is the book I finished most recently. I managed to finish it so quickly as well, as the chapters are fairly short and snappy. If you've suffered with a mental health issue, or know somebody else that has, this would be a great read. I could relate to a lot of things Matt was saying, and it felt comforting. He doesn't just share his experience, but there's so many uplifting points in there as well. Which is so important for recovery. 

What are your must reads?

  1. This Modern Love sounds like such a tempting book. A compilation book from different viewpoints of one topic sounds much more interesting than one view of many topics. I'll definitely have to check it out now! <3

  15. I haven't read for ages and want to get a book to read now but one that's not too intense because I have mocks coming up! I love 'The Sky Is Everywhere', I've never heard of 'Reasons to Stay Alive'but it sounds good and so does the first one! I knew Will made a book but didn't know much about it but that sounds like such a nice read.
