Wednesday Shelf Control is a bookish meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies on a weekly basis.
Hi lovelies! Hope you’re having a good week so far!
I don’t know what to write for the intro here anymore, because it’s a weekly meme, and not a post with unique type of content, so let’s just go straight and see which book I picked for this week’s Wednesday Shelf Control!
Today’s featuring book is…
Too Close to Home by Aoife Walsh
How I got it:
I bought a paperback copy at a local bookstore.
When I got it:
2016… I guess?
Why I want to read it:
I’m so used to reading fantasy books that I still find it hard to get to know the contemporary stuff in general, and ones that contain diversity in specific. I picked this book after reading a blurb which seems very interesting and of something I could partially relate to.
Meet Minny: her life is a complicated whirlwind of unbearable PE lessons, annoying friends and impossible-to-live-with siblings. Minny is desperate for some space in a house spilling over with family and hangers-on. She has to contend with her autistic sister Aisling’s school bullies, whilst trying to keep her self-absorbed BFF Penny happy, and look normal in front of new boy Franklin. And on top of this, now Dad has announced that he’s returning to London – with his new girlfriend.
Secrets, lies and home truths will out, frying pans will be burnt, and arguments will flare up in a story full of humour, honesty and minor household emergencies.
As usual: have you read it? If yes, what did you think of this book?
If not, how about buddy-read?~
Lots of love,
