Live Through This by Mindi Scott
I really liked this book. Coley is barely coping with life while trying to hide a deep dark secret. The facade starts to crack as her relationship with Reece develops and layer by layer she is exposed until she can’t keep it together anymore. A totally unexpected twist at the end left me gasping!

From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time but Reece, her crush, helps distract her and she has a great family to fall back on. But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted façade, that for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. — Extract from Goodreads.com
How to start a blog my way… Think about it, shudder in fear. Think about it a month later, shudder in fear. Repeat for two years…
January 2014. The beginning.
Books have always been part of my life and I grew up in Southern Africa reading my way through Enid Blyton and Malcolm Saville’s books, usually in my favourite hideout sitting in a tree at the bottom of the garden. There were few ‘decent’ Young Adult books when I was a teenager and perhaps that’s why I love reading YA books now… but it’s probably got more to do with the fact that I never really grew up!
After several different careers, I finally found my passion. As a school librarian, I not only get to read the books I love but also to discuss them with like-minded people every day!
This blog will focus on my love of reading, books and all things bookish.
