    One thought on “Niet te filmen”

    1. Sophie Kinsella used to be such a guilty pleasure author for me. I haven't read one of her books in years but I always enjoyed reading about the hilarious, ridiculous and unfortunate situations her shopaholic protagonist found herself in.Finding Audrey, though, could be Kinsella's strongest work to date. It's funny, sweet, heartwarming but also - I felt - an honest look at a teenage girl living with social anxiety.“They talk about “body language,” as if we all speak it the same. But everyo [...]

    2. This was so funny and cute! Even though this book does deal with some serious topics relating to mental health, I felt it handled those elements very well and managed to stay lighthearted and fun. I really enjoyed the humor, and my initial reaction after finishing this is that I want to read more Sophie Kinsella ASAP! I could've done with some more details about the events that triggered Sophie's anxiety, but the story is less about what happened in the past and more about her current life and f [...]

    3. THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD BOOK. I appreciated the fact that it was a light hearted book that still dealt with a serious topic like mental illness and did it in a respectful way! BLESS YOU SOPHIE KINSELLA.

    4. *** EDIT**** If you don't agree with my opinions on this review, you don't have to comment and tell me I'm wrong. JUST SAYIN'. My opinion isn't going to change.I want to be very clear about something, though: I didn't finish this book because of ME. It's a book that makes me uncomfortable and unhappy. But that's just me. It's totally a case of "it's you, not me." So YEAH. I don't believe in reading books that make me awfully unhappy. I DNF'd this at 100-pages.This is a book about social anxietyw [...]

    5. Update: I reviewed/finished this a few days ago after having read it all in one day but as I sit here and plan the review and think about it more I realize it's not a 3 star read, but more of a 2 star read for me so I have lowered my rating accordingly.***This was okay. I found it didn't really get going for a while and that sometimes the focus was more so on the brother than on Audrey. But overall the writing was good, the characters were alright, so it was just an average read. Didn't love it [...]

    6. I did enjoy my time with this book, but I feel I did not enjoy it as much as my peers. I have had Finding Audrey on my radar for an immensely long time due to it being one of the only YA books I've found to deal with social anxiety, specifically, and while I was pleased with the mental health rep, I found the majority of the rest of the book to be lacking.The glowing element of this story is absolutely the representation for social anxiety. Audrey is diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder and cl [...]

    7. Sophie Kinsella did it again. Earlier this week, I read and disliked ELIZA AND HER MONSTERS. I thought it was because the main character was lethargic, which was mostly due to her social anxiety, but so is Audrey. She’s an observer also—very calm, stays inside, interacts little—and I loved the hell out of her voice. Something bad happened to Audrey at her last school, so now she wanders around the house aimlessly. Her doctor tells her to make a video documenting her life, family, recovery, [...]

    8. 4.5 stars"Life is all about climbing up, slipping down, and picking yourself up again. And it doesn't matter if you slip down. As long as you're kind of heading more or less upwards. That's all you can hope for. More or less upward."Sophie Kinsella is on my auto-buy list. Her books are like literary sunshine. They're sweet, heartwarming, and never fail to coax a laugh out of me.Finding Audrey is no exception—with a twist. The critical reader in me hates it. At the beginning of the book, Audrey [...]

    9. Sophie Kinsella does it again! If you want a great mental health book, THIS. IS. IT. So therapy and medication positive, along with being positive in general, I love it!

    10. "The trouble is, depression doesn't come with handy symptoms like spots and a temperature, so you don't realize it at first. You keep saying "I'm fine" to people when you're not fine. You think you should be fine. You keep saying to yourself: "Why aren't I fine?"This is going to be one long-ass review, everyone.Let me just preface this by saying one reason why I love this book so much is because of how personal the topic is to me. Some of this review will be a ramble-y description of my experien [...]

    11. Adorable alert!And I’m not even talking about the romance because although there may be a little romance, it’s not really romance-romance. It’s still more about friendship. You’ll understand what I mean (although I still would have better appreciated it had the main characters been a bit older) when you read the book. The novel made me laugh so much from the first page till the very end. I enjoyed everything about it which is a wonderful surprise because this is a story about a girl (Aud [...]

    12. I'm impressed with how much I enjoyed this! I've heard so much praise about Sophie Kinsella's writing, and I adored it! It's very reminiscent of The Fault in our Stars with the entire sassy "omg whatever" teenager type narration, a sarcastic YA trope that I thought I was hate but ended up actually chuckling at a couple of times. The characters in this book were phenomenal. Audrey's family is hilarious and every character was so well-written and real; I adored them all even though everyone had th [...]

    13. The story is about Audrey who suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder. Audrey is convalescing at home after a particularly bad episode brought on by some bullying at school when Linus enters her life and helps to drag her out of her cage.At least, that’s what the blurb would have you think. But the truth is it’s Audrey, her doctor and a bit of prodding from Linus that really sees Audrey on the path to recovery – and for someone who keeps dark glasses on and can’t stand to speak to anyone ou [...]

    14. Watch my video review or read on for the written review :) youtube/watch?v=4mD7VThank you so much to Doubleday Children's for sending me this book! I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book! At first I was so excited for it because it sounded perfect for me because when I was Audrey's age, I had actually gone through something freakishly similar to her in this book! But then again, I had issues with it that I was hoping wouldn't arise but unfortunately I couldn't ignore. I'll start off by s [...]

    15. This is the worst book I’ve ever read. Okay, objectively I know that I’ve read much worse books. The writing and plot of this book are not the worst I’ve ever read and it’s readable unlike some other books I’ve read but I didn’t hate those as much as I hate this. I hate this book. And yes, I know hate is a strong word and I shouldn’t waste my energy on hating a book when that energy could go to reading books that I will end up loving but this book hurt me. This book offended me so [...]

    16. Okay, first : I love Kinsella's works (thought it was important to say write). Now, her books are the first ones I read in English, so, you know, I might need to reread them some day (I mean duh. I'm not a language snowflake). Anyway : Kinsella? She gets my humor. I mean not me me, but you get it right? Her books make me laugh. They're refreshing. Like candies. Okay, maybe not like candies - Well, let's say that they put me in the Kinsella bubble. What is it? Just look, it's just like life, but [...]

    17. 3,5-4 STARS What a sweet, funny and fast paced story! I loved the Shopaholic series,even thought I have read only the first three books I enjoyed all of them and I was excited to see a new book from her which was so different This is a young adult book where she covers sensitive subjects such as anxiety disorder, addiction with computers and bullying.This story is about Audrey,a fifteen year old girl suffering from anxiety disorder after an experience of school bullying that has led her to going [...]

    18. There are two things I think we can all agree on when it comes to books dealing with mental health:1) We want more of them because it is such an important issue and isn’t talked about enough2) Mental health books will ALWAYS be polarizingThere are two reasons for the second point:a) A book deals with the heavy issue in a very serious manner and appears to be quite “dark”b) The author decides to take a more humorous approach and pairs a heavy topic such as mental health with a writing style [...]

    19. I haven't been reading young adult literature for a very long time. I hardly ever read it when I was its target audience, and I have only had the pleasure to explore it the past couple of years, naturally way past my expiration date for such reads. Well, at least that is what "they" (bad people) say.What I have learned is how young adult genre is the real shit when comes to dealing with difficult but important subjects. In many ways I feel as if it does and succeeds better at it than most adult [...]

    20. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Penguin Random House UK Children’s and NetGalley.)“To put you out of your misery, here’s the full diagnosis. Social Anxiety Disorder, General Anxiety Disorder and Depressive Episodes. Episodes. Like depression is a sitcom with a fun punchline.”This was a cute story a girl suffering from an anxiety disorder, and her crazy mother!I liked Audrey in this story and I felt really sorry for her. What s [...]

    21. "But what I've learned is not to fight my lizard brain, but kind of tolerate it. Listen to it and then say, 'Yeah, whatever.' Just like you tolerate a four-year-old." This is only my second novel from Sophie Kinsella. I read I've Got Your Number about 3 summers ago and I absolutely loved it!Finding Audrey is a much shorter contemporary read that's super cute and has the ability to lift your mood. The writing is simple yet it also has a charm appeal to it as I found myself occasionally smiling. T [...]

    22. *read full review to see what this book inspired me to do(because I'm that awkward) or you know scroll down*“It won’t be forever. You’ll be in the dark for as long as it takes and then you’ll come out.” Having developed an anxiety disorder and no longer able to leave the house and make eye contact, recovery comes slow. Audrey likes to block out the world and her fears by wearing her sunglasses. Living in a her own box, the chances of finding herself again are drifting out of view. Unti [...]

    23. 4,5 stars!Once again, Sophie Kinsella reminded me why am I still so in love with reading books.If you didn't know, Kinsella is the one who got me into reading in the first place. With her Shopaholic series she showed me reading can be fun and now, years after reading her first book, I still enjoy spending my free time with a good book in my hands (or on my Kindle).When I first heard she was about to publish a novel in my favorite genre, I just knew I had to read it immediately.I had a great feel [...]

    24. 4 stars!"We're just looking and looking at each other. And I can feel something new between us, something even more intimate than anything we've ever done. Eye to eye. It's the most powerful connection in the world."This book just reminds me about how much I love Sophie Kinsella's standalone novel's. This book is about a 14 year old girl named Audrey, who after an unpleasant incident, develops an anxiety disorder. She's stopped going to her school, rarely leaves her house and wears dark glasses [...]

    25. This was such a fun book! I honestly didn't expect any less from Sophie Kinsella but I was a bit hesitant because of two reasons, one being that this is her first try at writing middle grade books, and another being that I never really enjoy middle grade books. The first reason is that I really hoped Kinsella's humor will translate through such a young protagonist (and oh boy, did it ever!) and the other is that I often find MG characters too immature for my taste, but Kinsella's magic did it ag [...]

    26. So this book gives you two main subjects. Anxiety and Video Games. Audrey had anxiety. And her brother Frank (and his friend Linus) were addicted to this one video game. Let me start out by saying that these two concepts are initially extremely well researched. Some of the anxiety lines made me tear up out of accuracy, and Frank's video game obsession mirrored how actual hardcore gamers are. So good on Kinsella right?Now what I thought this was going to be was a marriage between the two, because [...]

    27. Actual Rating 4.25 starsI loved this story :) It was just a small snippet into the life of Audrey at a time after some serious drama went down. We find her in a place of isolation and hurt. What Sophie Kinsella is able to do in this charming story is tell a real story about a girl who experiences something all too real, which causes major fallout in her life. But the way Kinsella writes it is the selling point for me.This story could VERY quickly fall into a depressed and hopeless tone, making t [...]
