    One thought on “Oonko ihan normaali?”

    1. “Everyone’s on the cliff edge of normal. Everyone finds life an utter nightmare sometimes, and there’s no “normal” way of dealing with it. There’s only what’s normal to you.”I may be overreacting but Am I Normal Yet may be one of the best YA contemporaries I’ve read to date. It’s extremely hilarious (been laughing since page one), but also heart-rending, truly very eye opening as it involves feminism in its rawest, most genuine sense and a closer, more sensitive look at menta [...]

    2. How do I even begin to talk about a book that means the absolute world to me? I think I'm going to have to do a whole video on this book and my relationship to it because this book is just so, so important to me. <3

    3. Wow.Sometimes there are books that come along and shake you to your core. This is one such book. My friend Gabby has talked about how great this book is for as long as I've known her here on but she's got the dodgiest taste in books ever!!! Sorry Gabby but you do and I say this with love But then I read one of her other favs over the summer and subsequently I rated it highly so that got me thinking that maybe she wasn't completely delusional 😂😂 ANYWAY!! Then I discovered my friend Sam lov [...]

    4. Reread. As epic and as wonderful as the first read. Original review:I want to hug this book! It. Was. So. Good. I cried, dammit. And I never cry when it comes to books! So, it deals with a 16 year old girl who suffers from severe OCD. And going into this, I was slightly ignorant on the topic being an actual serious mental health disorder and more aware of the stereotypical definition of OCD and how it's used playfully in everyday language. I loved the insight Holly Bourne gave into the mind of s [...]

    5. Every so often a book comes along that feels like it was written especially for you, Am I Normal Yet? was one of those books for me. Holly Bourne tackles the big issues that teenage girls face daily: feminism, mental health, friendship and boy drama and shows how these themes are intertwined and affect one another making life as a teenage girl treacherous to navigate.The book follows Evie’s story as she tries to live a normal life, something that is fundamentally difficult with OCD rituals con [...]

    6. DNF @ 5%I made a promise earlier this year that if a book made an epilepsy joke I would immediately DNF it. Epilepsy jokes aren't funny. Do you know what it's like to wonder if your mum will wake up with brain damage? If she will even remember you? If she will even wake up? My single mother was diagnosed with grand mal seizures almost five years ago. I was 14 at the time. I was a baby. I had to call an ambulance and talk to a paramedic while helping my mum. This wasn't her first seizure (that ha [...]

    7. That was really good!“Because now people use the phrase OCD to describe minor personality quirks. "Oooh, I like my pens in a line, I'm so OCD."NO YOU'RE FUCKING NOT."Oh my God, I was so nervous about that presentation, I literally had a panic attack."NO YOU FUCKING DIDN'T."I'm so hormonal today. I just feel totally bipolar."SHUT UP, YOU IGNORANT BUMFACE.”When I first picked up this book I thought it was going to be a fluffy and quirky read. Well, it is and it isn't at the same time. It deals [...]

    8. Love. Love. LOVE! Words can't describe how much I enjoyed this book. The friendship, the feminism and the insightful look into what fellow girls go through on a daily basis was excellent. With all the boys, the drama and the mental health issues, Evie had a lot to handle and I felt like I was right there with her. If you haven't yet, go and read it immediately and let the girl power overwhelm you!

    9. This was so great. The perfect amount of fun and seriousness and I loved it so much. Can't wait to carry on and see what the future holds for the Spinsters!

    10. 4.25*The ending was really good up until the epilogue. That ruined it a bit. A lot of the side characters are really underdeveloped. They all seem to have their own issues, but they are never really explored since this is the main character's Evie's story so by the end I'm like ARE THEY OK? The main character Evie has OCD. She just wants to be normal. She goes to college (16 years old, UK system) and meets 2 new friends Lottie and Amber. They form the spinster club in which they discuss feminism [...]

    11. After reading Am I Normal Yet, the first thing that came to my mind was: ”I have to get the second book ASAP!!!❤️❤️❤️”The Spinster Club is a feminist series, but it also focuses on other important aspects such as mental health awareness.The main protagonist, Evie, is a teenage girl suffering from mental illnesses, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. She was tired of getting called the “crazy girl” back in high school, so now that she’s goin [...]

    12. This book is really important for two reasons.1. The insight it gives the reader into the mind of someone suffering from OCD.2. The constant references to and exploration of feminist ideas and theories.Besides the fact that it's important and deals with serious issues, it's well written with fully realised characters you really care about. I wish I had read this book when I was 15. Highly recommended

    13. Am I Normal Yet? is a much loved UKYA novel that had been on my TBR since last summer. I heard such good things about it from the Twitterverse and couldn't wait to get stuck in (I'd already bought the companion sequel, How Hard Can Love Be?).I knew that Am I Normal Yet? was a story of teenage friendship, feminism, and mental health, so it was my first choice book to give out on World Book Night on April 23rd. I left copies on coffee shop tables and at bus stops for teenagers around my local comm [...]

    14. Tiene un estilo ligero y con humor, y quizás por eso choca cuando la autora se pone seria hablando de feminismo y de enfermedades mentales. La evolución del grupo de amigas (respecto a lo primero) y de Evie (respecto a lo segundo) es notable. Al principio creí que estaba tratando ambas causas de manera superficial (y haciéndoles un flaco favor a ambas), pero no. Lo que hace es que sus personajes cometan errores, y que aprendan de ellos. No empiezan (ni terminan, ya de paso) haciéndolo todo [...]

    15. So eye-opening about OCD! And I loooooove the feminism. There were moments that made me laugh way loud and made me punch-the-wall angry and just heartachingly sad. Am I Normal Yet was a great read. Full review tk.

    16. I know I'm a little late to the Holly Bourne party, and I'm sorry about that. After reading spectacular book, I definitely need more of her books! I definitely need to support more UKYA authors, and Holly is perfect for this.In Am I Normal Yet?, Evie is about to start college. After just scrapping by with a few GCSEs, she feels as if now is the right time to reduce her medication for her OCD, and try to be 'normal'. She has a plan: not let anyone know she was the 'girl who went crazy', make frie [...]

    17. How can I not give this book 5 stars? This book is cute, scary, childish and even more scary because its so realistic. I can really recognize myself in this book, and that doesn't happen a lot. Just have to say that this book can be a trigger for people struggling with different mental issues, specially OCD ofc. But I think maybe it's a good book for most people to read, maybe to understand a bit more. Maybe to se what it's like to be the 'mental' person.

    18. It's YA and I got given the book by a friend who had copies for World Book Night 2016.Otherwise, I would not have picked it up, becauseYA.If I had read this when I was 15, I would have enjoyed this much more, but as I haven't the book fell a bit flat for me. The intention of the book is great, tho: To give readers an insight into how OCD and general anxiety disorder can affect people. It's not something that I as a 15-year-old would have been that familiar with, other than by way of crude jokes. [...]

    19. This review was originally posted on [Between My Lines]Wow! Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne slammed me to the ground with all the feels. It broke my heart, made me roar with laughter, made me determined to fight more about feminist issues and most of all enlightened me about OCD.  First Line of Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne "It started with a house party."  5 Things I Love in Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne   1.   The Jarring Descent in to relapse When we meet Evie first, she is in recov [...]

    20. 4.5 stars. I've been putting off reading this book for the better part of a year now, and I have no idea why. I finally picked it up last night, needing something quick and contemporary to break up all the war-torn literary fiction I've been reading in a sad attempt to finish my Around the World in 80 Books Project in the next 15 days. And I absolutely SPED through this. You can't help but feel for Evie, who just wants to live her life without freaking out over every little thing, the way she se [...]

    21. Tiene un estilo ligero y con humor, y quizás por eso choca cuando la autora se pone seria hablando de feminismo y de enfermedades mentales.

    22. SO. FREAKIN GOOD. If you love me dearly and have been following me, you'll know that this is my first review for a loooong time. I've been on a book and review slump and you guys dont know how thankful I am because this book just picked me up. So full of feminism and sass. Full review will be posted!

    23. Review originally posted on my book blog:afrolicthroughfiction.wordpreRated 4.5/5 stars!Oh. My. Goodness.Where do I start?Let’s start at the beginning, like always, shall we? That seems like a good plan.Because right from the very first page, I fell in love with the writing style. That’s 100% the truth. I started reading it on my journey to college, but only managed to read about 8 pages during that short time. But even with those few pages, when Abbie sort of jokingly asked how it was so fa [...]

    24. “Everyone's on the cliff edge of normal. Everyone finds life an utter nightmare sometimes, and there's no 'normal' way of dealing with it There is no normal, Evelyn.”After reading only fantasy books for a long time picking up contemporaries always feels a bit weird. My mind says after having read about this exciting new world with magic and action, reading about the life of a 16 year old teenageer will be boring.It wasn't. This was the most reletable book I've ever read. This book follows Ev [...]

    25. Oh, its very realistic alright. Am I Normal Yet? is every bit as thoughtful, feminist and full of friendship as I thought it would be. At some points, I feel like Evie (the MC) is childish and immature, even at 16 but at another points, I desperately want to hug her and tell, "Its okay, Evie. You're okay." Evie suffers from OCD and not your usual "ooh i like my pens in a line. I'm so OCD." Its the real deal, and it's heartbreaking. Shes constantly aware of germs in her surrounding, she washes he [...]

    26. "I can say, with some confidence, that it's gone too far the other way. Because now mental health disorders have gone "mainstream."[]Because now people use the phrase OCD to describe minor personality quirks. "Oooh, I like my pens in a line, I'm so OCD."NO YOU"RE FUCKING NOT."Oh my God, I was so nervous about that presentation, I literally had a panic attack."NO YOU FUCKING DIDN'T."I'am so hormonal today. I just feel totally bipolar."SHUT UP, YOU IGNORANT BUMFACE." I'am ashamed of myself. Really [...]

    27. If there's one book everybody needs to read, it's this one.This book is about mental health, OCD, feminism, friendship, and love. It has such strong messages about these topics and I HIGHLY enjoyed reading more about it. I have not yet read any book in which OCD is so accurately described (I do not have OCD but I have heard a lot about it and I assume feel like the book is accurate, if it isn't let me know).It features an amazing friendship and lovable characters and realistic situations and fun [...]

    28. This was such an amazing and important book. I absolutely devoured it—and am going to start the next in the series right away!

    29. Full Review: What’s worse than having a book turn out to be terrible is having a book you expected to turn out well, turn out terrible. So, for all you mathies out there, what is the reciprocal of that? I launched into this one expecting myself to hate it but instead, awesomeness came and exploded in my face and I am glad to say that I found myself pleasantly surprised.Way too often in books, there’s a sense of disconnected-ness or distance between the main character and the reader. I feel t [...]

    30. Review to come. But I thought I'd just let you know that the ending of this book was WONDERFUL. I was crying happy tears <3
