BAMF Review: Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall

BAMF Review: Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall

Posted January 28, 2017 by Jamie in BAMF Reviews, Features, Reviews / 4 Comments

We both agreed on every aspect of this one (with slight variations) and it was sort of shocking to both of us because usually we have some differences. However, after reading other reviews, it is apparent that most of the people who read this book feel the same way about the book: it has great representation, but not much actually happened. We thought Norah’s stream of thoughts were pretty identical to how people with agoraphobia and other anxiety disorders view the world. We are really glad that more and more authors are starting to write characters who have mental illness and […]

About Convince Me To Read Reviews While we all have fairly similar tastes, sometimes we need a little push to read a certain book. The Convince Me to Read Review will be a review of the novel plus a section on why we think the other would enjoy it. Dani’s review I’m going to tell you all to read this now, not because this book is amazing, but because it’s so bizarre that it needs to be shared. And, despite being weird as hell, it wasn’t all that bad. The writing was good enough and the story crazy enough that […]

Dani’s Review I almost started my review the same was Jamie did, then saw her opening and changed my mind. We’re clearly merging minds. Anyway, I did like this book.

I thought they were incredibly well-written for 10 year olds, as I got a sense of their youthfulness and energy, along with the beginnings of pubescent awkwardness. Annie was so optimistic and naïve, constantly having ideas and insisting that things were done a certain way, so I can […]
