The Infinite Noise Book Rev..

The Infinite Noise Book Review

Wow I don’t know if I can even put into words how much I adored this book. The concept alone is hella interesting and I swear it’s so well written that at times I felt like I was Caleb and was feeling everyone’s emotions at once. I think my favorite visuals were when Adam’s emotions were described as the ocean and I could see them in my mind like that. Adam I could definitely relate to as I also struggle with depression and self harm. While I haven’t cut in many many years the impulse to do so is always […]

Dream Boy Book Review

Dream Boy Book Review

This is not my first time reading this book. I read this book almost every single day when I was in middle school. It was around this time that I was discovering my sexuality and I am from a small country town just like Roy and Nathan. Somewhere people still have terrible notions about LGBTQIA+ people so I felt extremely alone and depressed due to the bullying that I received. This book was my safe place, my refugee. It was my anchor in restless sea that was school. I even copied it into a notebook so that I could read […]
