Book Review: Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig

A few years ago I stumbled upon a little book called Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig.  I cannot tell you what a game changing book this was for me.  Here was this person who could talk about depression and anxiety with honesty, humour, and hope.  It was the first time I really acknowledged my own mental health worries and it felt a little less alone.  I figured this marvelous book was just a one-off, so you can imagine my delight when I found out he was writing a follow up, Notes on a Nervous Planet. 

ARC Review: How to Stop Time

I recently read and loved Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive, a moving memoir about living with depression, but had never read any of his fiction. How to Stop Time immediately caught my eye because it combined two of my favourite things: historical fiction and science fiction. I was hoping it was just as poignient and funny and moving as his memoir, and he once again blew me away with his skills as a writer.

Weekly Wrap-Up #12

It’s Friday, the happiest day of the week!  I didn’t do a weekly wrap-up last week because the last day of the month fell on a Friday – you can read my June round-up here. It has been a tough week for reading and blogging because of general life things (again, all good stuff), but I did manage to read one book this week.
