    Arc kindly provided by Three Saints Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.For Readathon 2017: 42/52In the category: “A book about people with mental health issues”. “We see what we want to see, what we expect to see, instead of what’s really there. I don’t think we do it on purpose, most of the time. We just get kind of stuck. We start thinking that the way things are is the way they’ll be. But that’s not true. It can...

    DNFMini review:I received this E-ARC via Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I had heard about this book through GR, found it interesting and requested it. Unfortunately I didn't like it. I didn't like the MC. She avoided everything to points of stupidity. She was rude to her dad because he was actually trying to get involved in her and help her. She treated her friends ten times better than her own father. Who was actua...

    In all honesty this book was just meh, it definitely didn't blow my mind but it also wasn't boring and slow.ngl, the only reason i carried on reading it was because i LOVED marshall so much, he was cute and adorable. to be honest i didn't really hate any of the characters, i just didn't really connect with anyone of them and the angels thing was a bit of a no go for me, especially in a contemporary i felt like it didn't need to be there.prob abou...

    UPDATE (05.03): After re-reading the ending I stand by my first puntuation of the book. Even more so, to be honest. The book was more or less good until I realized I was being fed some kind of christian psycho babble... so... angels? And the actual psychologist and psychiatrists are the bad guys? No. Thanks but no. I dislike this kind of bull A LOT.ADDED NOTIFICATION (27.01.17): Since posting my review I was approached by the publisher and the au...

    This review was originally posted on Between My LinesI love this author as she has the ability to dress up challenging concepts and parade them in front of your eyes via intriguing story arc. Parallel is one of my favourite young adult sci-fi books, so I was pumped to read All Things New by Lauren Miller.First Line of All Things New by Lauren Miller “It catches my eye as it goes dark, lights blinking out all at once, upstairs, downstairs, front...

    Eye-opening and endearing. I really liked this book a lot. Anxiety issues are front and center, but there is also friendship, family, spirituality, romance and laughter. Marshall was so entertaining and added so much hope and humor. I wish all humans could be as lovely as he is! Highly recommend.

    Originally posted on Sweater WeatherI was provided with a copy by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewI just finished reading the book and I don’t know where to start because everything about this book is freaking awesome! I first came across this book on NetGalley. The cover was what draws me to the book at first and then I read the synopsis and voila, I clicked send to Kindle.The story focused on Jessa, who always ...

    And she did it again! Lauren Miller is 3 for 3 with her books and me. I loved everything about this beautiful story. My only complaint? I WANT MORE! Review to come.
  • Mallory De man
    Read full review here: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. This book was amazing, the amount of quotes I highlighted throughout the book was ridiculous because they all spoke to me so much. I can imagine many people will criticize this book as it is based around a mental disorder, and no one every agrees about the symptoms, improvement rates or anything else related to it. I believ...

    Heart-felt. Humorous. Hopeful. And Marshall was my favorite!

    Lesson learned: Never judge a freebie book based on its "freebie" status! So not only did I receive a copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, it was also a 'download now' free copy, meaning that I didn't have to be approved or anything in order to read it. I usually equate these books--in my mind--to the freebies of the ARC world. That aside, I thought that this book was a really good read and I very much e...

    4+"...perfect for fans of All the Bright Places and The Fault In Our Stars". Having noticed these words in the blurb for 'All Things New' by Lauren Miller I felt helpless to resist. Afterall those two books are amongst my favourite YA titles. What a wonderful discovery it was to find out the blurb was correct. All Things New was an excellent book. It brought to the forefront the debilitating symptoms and effects of anxiety and other important me...

    when my debut PARALLEL first came out i remember thinking i would never rate my own books. but then my dad said something to me that i think has changed my mind. he said that if you believe in the stories you tell that you can't be afraid to say that you think people should read them. so this is me saying yes, i think the story i wrote is worth your time and brain power. and also, i'm proud of it. proud of what ALL THINGS NEW says about people an...

    **Thanks to TSP for providing me with a copy of ALL THINGS NEW in exchange for my honest review.**I immediately identified with Jessa's anxiety and the pressure we all feel to be perfect, the false face we show to the world and our damaged soul's that no one sees. All Things New is ultimately a story of hope -- that even though our hidden places are often hurt and dark, that renewal is possible if we're open to the healing power of others. Jessa'...

    **Thanks to Three Saints Press for providing me with a copy of ALL THINGS NEW in exchange for my honest review.**Rarely does a book touch both the heart and the mind, and be so entertaining and profound at the same time. ALL THINGS NEW has everything I love for in a story -- love, mystery, the mystical, a real understanding of the stress and anxiety we all feel, and honest and real insight on what it means to be human.I view the world somehow dif...
  • Lexxie (un)Conventional Bookviews
    All Things New is an important book, as it deals with panic and mental disorders in teenagers. There were some aspects of the book that I found extremely good, and others I could have done without.The 'angel' aspect did not work for me. Nor did the fact that the psychiatrists in this book were all smirking, pill-pushing individuals. I also think I would have liked it more if the group therapy was actually group therapy, not a group of teens just ...
  • Mandy White
    this book was a something a bit different for me and i devoured it. as somebody who suffers with anxiety and depression i could relate to the characters in this story. i could feel their pain and understand what they were going through. thank you to net galley, the publishers and the author for the chance to read and review this book
  • Lauren
    If this book isn't on your to-read list, it should be! One of the best YA contemporaries I've read in a while! Review to come.
  • Sam Miller
    This book was amazing. When I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it. I was hooked from the first page. The characters were relatable, funny, but it was also very serious at times. It was very engaging. I kept turning the page to see what would happen next. It was a very enjoyable read.
  • Emily (alotabooks13)
    The little mental illness part of this book made my day. This book was so realistic, I think that's what made me like it even more. The fact of knowing someone goes through these things, saddens me. They should't have to deal with these things, that could be holding them back from life. Throughout you see that everyone has their struggles in their life. Marshall has to deal with the complications of his hole in his heart. Overall this book was am...

  • Leigh H.
    Lauren Miller has written an amazing book. I love, love, love this book. The characters, the emotion, the feelings are so real, so vivid -- the words seem more than dialogue, like I'm in Jessa's head. It made me realize how there's a spiritual side to our existence, something more than what we see on the surface. Recommend it to YA and all readers. I hope someone make this into a movie!!!

Mental health issues are front and centerMy anxiety is not as bad as it used to be, but I still remember what it was like to pass out in publi...
