Mini Reviews: The Obsession, Amelia Unabridged, Show Us Who You Are

Keeping up with reviewing books has been hard lately right? I’m finding that even for books I really enjoyed, I’m struggling to write more than a paragraph which isn’t great when you’re trying to run a whole book blog.

The Obsession by Jesse Q. Sutanto

This story packs a punch, and is basically Netflix’s You for teens – with a more satisfying ending. I loved that even though this was a multi-pov, Delilah was undeniably the main character, and I rooted for her through the story as she became morally grey. This ending left me with a few suspicions, and a few questions, so I’m looking forward to what the next book has in store – I would love it to be set in Singapore.

Amelia Unabridged by Ashley Schumacher

I forgot the blurb before going into this, and that was the best thing I could have done for myself. This story tore my heart to pieces before gently picking me back up and piecing everything back together with the help of a lost boy, a brain damaged dog and whales. This story is just so utterly beautiful, quotable, and wonderful.

Show Us Who You Are by Elle McNicoll

I wanted to get a full review of this book posted, but it’s just so good I’m resorting to telling you to just buy it. The friendship, the exploration of what means to be neurodivergent, the ending, it was just so, so good. I want to read every book Elle ever writes.

Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments!

One thought on “Mini Reviews: The Obsession, Amelia Unabridged, Show Us Who You Are

  1. I was excited about reading Elle McNicoll’s book ‘A Kind of Spark’ but the writing just didn’t appeal to me. I gave it away and now that I see she’s written another book about ASD I kind of wish I’d given it a second chance.
