Book Rainbow: Pink

Hello everyone! Today I'm wrapping up my book rainbow series with this post on pink books. Again, pink technically isn't a colour of the rainbow but I still own a lot of pink books so I decided to do this anyway! I hope you all have enjoyed this series, I'm quite pleased with the amount of interaction on the posts so I consider it to be a success! Also I had a lot of fun photographing and writing the posts.


Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - To be honest when I first heard of this I was completely put off by the name. I thought it would be ridiculously cheesy and totally not my thing. Whilst it does contain some romance, this has actually become one of my favourite books. Stephanie Perkins' writing style is so addictive, she writes a story that leaves you grinning like a maniac whilst unable to put the book down. This is about a girl who goes to a boarding school in Paris where she meets one fine young gentleman.

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - This is possibly one of my favourite young adult romances ever! This is about two teenagers who have to take a really long road trip together and obviously romance ensues(as always in YA fiction). What I love most about this is that Morgan Matson took the road trip herself and has included photos, tickets, receipts, playlists etc which really just gives it something special. 

Girl Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen - Most of the books in this post are sugary and sweet apart from this one. This is the diary of a girl in the 60s who is in a psychiatric hospital. Its based on the author's own experiences. Its kind of like One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest but with women instead. I enjoyed it but it is a bit morbid. I definitely went through a  phase a while ago where I was obsessed with books about 1960s mental health care. Now I don't read that sort of book so often but when I do they are still interesting!


Inside Number One Two Nine by Caroline Elvin - This is a story about a girl in her final year of university who discovered that her friends and her boyfriend aren't all that they cracked up to be. This is the debut novel of author and fellow blogger Caroline who is hopefully releasing a second novel soon!

Sugar Rush by Julie Burchill - To be honest its been so long since I read this that I can't really remember exactly what happens in this book. But I do know that its about a young teenager discovering that she is a lesbian and that I really enjoyed it. If you're into LGBT books then I bet you'll enjoy this one.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell - Oh man I do love a Rainbow Rowell book. This book follows a guy who works with computers in an office building. He runs a programme that flags staff emails that are inappropriate: ie swearing, racism, sex talk etc. He keeps getting emails between two girls that work in the office talking about the men that they like in the office and eventually he realises they're talking about him. What will he do about it? This book is such an easy read, perfect for just curling up with and reading in one day.
