Girlcrush: The #1 Sunday Times Bestseller
About this deal
I’d be more inclined to agree with her if this slogan hadn’t already been used, multiple times, in Florence Given’s very own merchandise.
I’m not talking about the queer and bisexual representation, nor the near future setting (please don’t let voice notes become a future thing). But there’s clearly a thriving market for people who purport to be a voice for Gen Z, both for the sake of Zoomers who want guidance and relatable media, and for the sake of non-Zoomers who want to understand what interests and concerns young people. Eartha seems to know exactly what is wrong with their relationship, telling us in impressively flat and unadorned prose that he is just like her dad, her relationship with him is “not only draining [her] zest for life but also majorly contributing to the climate crisis”, and she should have ended things with him a long time ago. It has to be said though that this is also a breezy, fast read, and the unlikeable protagonist carries the over-construed story pretty well.Some of the things I liked about this book were the discussions about the internet and the complexities of being bisexual, even within the very lgbtqia+ community, as the character describes either feeling like people judge her for being too gay or not gay enough.

From the hugely popular author of Women Don’t Owe You Pretty comes their fiction debut; a unique, highly relevant and engaging story that focuses upon Eartha, an influencer who begins to lose grip of her life after a.A self-professed feminist, Given went viral in 2018 for starting a petition to cancel the “fat-shaming” (and just terrible) Netflix series Insatiable. The only problem is that in the attempt, Given made those themes more prevalent than necessary and didn’t leave a good taste in my mouth.
Es passte so gut, dass mir erst im Nachhinein auffiel, dass das nicht so im englischen Original stehen kann. The plot was unhinged, the characters lacked any sort of depth and substance, the weird Director’s Note device felt shoehorned in a desperate attempt to make the preceding chapter make any sort of sense and the ending was an absolute dumpster fire which reeked of closing deadlines with no real plan or structure in place to bring the story to a close. Women are thanking her for her bluntness and freeing them from conformity, other thank her for being so honest. That been said, least I managed to finish this one, never managed to finish WDOYP as I didn't rate it.I thought this would be a fun summer read but it’s definitely aimed more at younger people who love and idolise influencers on Instagram or maybe someone who hasn’t picked up a book to read since being forced to read Of Mice and Men in GCSE English. Und Eartha muss am eigenen Leib erfahren, wie schnell sich Liebe in Hass und positiver Zuspruch in einen Shitstorm verwandeln kann.
The queer topics and situations felt realistic and proved an interesting read, but it became clunky and rushed after the first 200 pages. The bestselling LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between: this is the fifth volume of the Heartstopper series. In this book, we follow Eartha, a woman who has just come out to the world in a drunken video on social media and has become a viral sensation.She’s not happy with Matt, who has come to think of Eartha as someone he can treat as a servant and verbally abuse.
