Bookstagram has fallen head over heels for ‘How Hard Can Love Be?’

Holly Bourne has quickly become one of the most popular UKYA authors, and following the release of the second book in the ‘Spinster Club’ trilogy, ‘How Hard Can Love Be?’ at the beginning of February, there’s no sign of the Holly love stopping!

So happy!!!!! was having such a bad day today but look what arrived in the post that released today! I adore the cover. I absolutely fell in love with @hollybourneya and her “Am I normal yet” novel and can’t wait to read the second book in the trilogy. ——— “Am I Normal Yet?” Is about a girl called Evie who suffers with OCD and is trying to fit in at school. She then becomes friends with Amber and Lottie. They form a group called the ‘Spinster’ club and talk about the important topic of feminism. ——– “How Hard Can Love Be?” Is the 2nd book in the trilogy focusing on Amber and relationships. Again dealing with topics such as mental health and feminism. Holly Bourne accurately portrays both themes and personally, I believe these books should be read by everyone! I’m happy that books like this exist within the YA literature genre as not a lot of books cover both topics so wonderfully and accurately. Highly recommend! ——— #hollybourne #aminormalyet #howhardcanlovebe #feminism #mentalhealth #yalit #yalovin #epicreads #bookblog #bookhaul #booklion #booklove #bookshelf #bookstagram #bkfeature #vscobooks #igreads #instabook #instawrite #writerslife #bookworm #booknerd #cardiff #rainbowthon #readathon A photo posted by ??
