Rather Too Fond Of Books

Hi, I'm Hayley,


I've been reading books for as long as I can remember and have recently re-discovered my book blog (Rather Too Fond of Books), which has made me excited to have a place to share what I'm reading, to review some books and to share my bookish memories. I have combined a newer blog of mine with this one and this is where I'll always post.


I am happy to consider any books to review. I post all of my reviews on here and on my book likes page, then I will be promoting the posts on Twitter and Facebook.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer  - Michelle Hodkin I wanted to love this novel and I think I would have loved it had it not been for the PTSD. My problem is that the PTSD was just not realistic, it seemed to me that little research was done before the novel was written, and it just distracted me from the story. I understand that the author was going in a particular direction with this character and had to make her symptoms fit but I just feel that when I read a book I want to believe it's real and this novel just fell short of that for me.
