Quick Review for 'What I Like About Me' #LoveOzYA


So the summer holidays have just ended, and I’m back on IAD (I missed so much, omg) with a quick review of a summer book you can still squeeze onto your TBR before school *stress* starts and autumn rolls around.


PS: I’m soon going to post a Feb Reading Challenge + some overall goals for 2020 reading. I’d love to hear some of your thoughts and goals for your 2020 reading year in the comments 🙂

5 out of 5 stars

Set during the summer holidays and in Australia, ‘What I Like About Me’ follows a 16-year-old girl, Maisie, who has always struggled with feeling good about herself and her body. She is tasked by her English teacher to write a diary over the summer and at first, she hates it. But she soon starts enjoying documenting her summer adventures, from seeing her childhood crush again to being annoyed by his best friend to helping her friend get over a breakup, to missing her AWOL dad, to dealing with her perfect sister and her beauty pageants, to falling in love and of course, the overall challenges of growing up and being a teen. Full of positive vibes, as well as life lessons, great characters, fun plot and quirky dialogue, ‘What I Like About Me’ is a perfect story for summer.


Originally read in 2019.

This does sound nice - like a happy read, which is always refreshing.

:) I agree, it's nice to have a balance of heavier content books and more light-hearted ones
(Although this one does have a few serious moments too)
