@Andrew65 has a post about books that have moved us. I read this in ARC form. It tore me up. I usually take away something or things from every book I ever read. Sometimes books have even saved me from myself as a teen. ENDOFBOOKQUOTE: “What‘s your solace? Do you know? Find it and don‘t stop doing it, EVER. ” She adds more to this but that‘s the take away I took for myself. My solace? Reading,cooking and spreading my love for both to others.

+“Everyone has that moment, I think, the moment when something so…momentous happens that it rips your very being into small pieces. And then you have to stop. For a long time, you gather your pieces. And it takes such a very long time, not to fit them back together, but to assemble them in a new way, not necessarily a better way. More, a way you can live with until you know for certain that this piece should go there, and that one there.”

This book was so powerful, heartwrenching and relatable. i found this all the more relatable because of my own struggle with my mental health. I loved all the characters and surprisingly i also liked the doomed relationship between Riley and Charlotte. I liked the ending and that she learns to cope with her trauma and her mental illness. One quote that stuck with me was "We live, we bleed, we die." this quote is sad but also highly realistic.

This one was tough just because of the weighty topics, but overall, I enjoyed it. It is a bit graphic and has some language that may not be appropriate for all young adults, but this could be therapeutic for the right reader.

It took me a while to finish reading, what with school being back and all, but I am finally done with Girl In Pieces. The story tells of a never ending internal battle and the constant tug of war between healing and not really healing. I plan to write more about my thoughts on this book, so come check out my blog!

I have stopped reading this book because recently I‘ve just been wrapping up on my summer, and my boyfriend is in town so I had to make the most out of it. I don‘t see him for months at a time because we live in two separate towns, hours and hours apart from each other.

Sunday he will be going back to his place, sadly, and the semester will begin for both of us this Monday. Tea and Macarons before sh*t hits the fan. #summer #tea

theasaurus And I‘d like to add that hopefully I can still read throughout the semester. I had written in my blog more thoughts about The Alice Network and Illuminae, so check them out. I hope to have the time to read and write on my blog throughout the semester. It‘s my last semester in college so I hope my time management works out for a change. 3mo

Now finally reading this, but through my phone. It‘s going to be a different experience because I prefer reading with a hard copy so much more! So can someone tell me if the bfc‘s are self-started or do I have to join some organized competition to get started with a bfc? A newbie asking for a friend.

I like books that make me feel and make me think but this book was just too depressing with absolutely no signs of hope or improvement so I stopped half way through cause I couldn't handle it. 🤷‍♀️

Everything about this book, I loved. The way that Kathleen writes, the words she chooses to use. It's all enchanting and grasping. Not only that, but it was comforting to know I wasn't alone in the self harm world.

⭐️3/5
As someone who loves early Ellen Hopkins, I was expecting to love this book. However, I wasn‘t compelled to pick it back up. I think I waited like 6 months between starting and finishing it, which could affect my opinions on the book but I think the fact I could do that also says a lot. It deals with a lot of big issues and isn‘t afraid of pushing subjects, but none of them felt fully fleshed out. I was left wanting more.

This was messed up, terrifying really. I'm still scared and depressed. I read books to be happy and escape the real world but this book did the opposite. I'm full of mixed emotions. Overall I liked it but started losing interest about halfway through; it was just too long. An author must dig really deep to be able to write something as disturbing as Girl in Pieces. I'm retreating back into my safe bubble now, thank you. :(

I loved it. It was so raw and emotional and I felt for the main character. Real life struggles people deal with and trying to find your way in life. There are some triggers in this book for drugs, abuse, mental illness and more.

“I just want to feel better. My own body is my deepest enemy. It wants, it wants, it wants and when it does not get, it cries and cries and I punish it. How can you live in fear of your own body?”

Girl in Pieces is a beautiful story about a girl (Charlie) trying to put the pieces of her life back together after everything has been taken from her. The book starts in Minnesota, but the majority takes place in #Arizona @LibraryBelle #ReadingUSA2019

Librarybelle Sounds good! 11mo

This book is really important. It‘s a book that everyone should read because like the author says, we probably all know someone right now who self-harms. This book didn‘t catch my heart because I identify with Charlie; it caught my heart because Charlie hurts and I want to hold her. Read this book! Like, now. Don‘t put it on your list. Read it and then share it. I couldn‘t put it down.

It took me a little while to get into this book, but it was worth the wait. I listened to the audiobook over the course of a few days while commuting to work on the train. It held my attention, and really hit me with a lot of feels at the end.

It deals with sensitive subject matter, including drugs and cutting, so not a good fit for anyone in search of a light read.

Loved the author‘s note at the end.

“I've got venom in my veins
I've got #poison in my heart
And all my broken dreams are tearing me apart
I've got poison in my heart”

The chorus of this song made me think of this book and its MC, Charlotte, who‘s struggling with trauma, addiction and self harm. A tough, heartbreaking, but also really great book, about seriously difficult subjects.

So I have been sick for almost 2 weeks and haven't been able to focus on reading, which sucks because it was the perfect time to get some good reading in. But I have been listening to this audiobook. It's very good, but also very difficult and sad. Big Trigger Warnings! The narrator is also really good. Hopwfully I'll get back to reading soon, I miss it!

Eggs Loved this book. Hope you feel better soon😍 2y

I really tried. But I couldn‘t, maybe because I can‘t identify with the MC. Or maybe it‘s because I‘m battling depression myself and I just can‘t handle this. I don‘t know.... I never leave a book unfinished but I got through 60 it pages and decided that life is too short to read books you don‘t enjoy. That‘s what school is for.... and since I already have to suffer through reading textbooks I don‘t want to suffer during my leisure time.

I just finished reading this for my “adults who read YA” book club. I did not want to read it and I waited until the very last minute before i did. Well it was excellent and I‘m really glad that I did. This is not something I would‘ve ever picked up on my own.

This book was fucking angelic.
It was amazing and sad and heartbreaking and real.
I definitely cried at the en. If I could‘ve tabbed the whole thing I definitely would‘ve, but I listened to it. I‘ll do that when I get a actual copy.
Definitely one of my favorite books from this year. I‘m glad this will be one of my final ones of the year.
I love when authors write about mental health and actually get it right
