    If this book were a movie, we'd all be at Julie Murphy's slumber party piled in front of the TV in our jammies, both screaming with laughter and clutching each other the minute someone leaned in for a kiss. This book is: Hilarious. Quietly poignant. Provocative. This book contains: Nuanced friendshi...

    I had such high hopes for this book but it was just.... average. The characters weren't amazing, the story wasn't amazing, etc. I was really excited to read this because I love reading books about fat girls, but her size was rarely mentioned. I know the book isn't supposed to focus on her weight, bu...

    Once upon a time, I was fat.I would have liked to use the nicer term "overweight", but who am I kidding? Almost weighing 70 kilos in my 5 feet 3 inches frame, I was fat and unhappy.

    Dumplin' might be the perfect example of why I don't tend to read light-hearted, fluffy contemporaries. Occasionally, my foray into this sub-genre ends with surprising new favourites like Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, but mostly I'm left feeling a little underwhelmed. Many times, I'm thinking "...

    This book is a hypocritical mess. There are three main things wrong with it:1. It was boring2. It's not body-positive for a book that's about body positivity3.

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/Most of my friends gave this one a “meh” rating, but I FREAKING LOOOOOOOOVED it . . . They obviously all read it wrong (j/k). They also might have actually ponied up some dollars for it, but it was gifted to me by a wee tipsy wi...

    THAT'S HOW IT ENDS???? I NEED MORE.I really REALLY liked this book. The message is SUPER SOLID and fantastic, and we need more books like this.Will is an incredible character, and all the supporting characters are so great as well. I really loved Millie and her ability to shine so bright no matter w...

    4.25 stars! “Find out who you are and do it on purpose” -Dolly Parton Dumplin’ was one of those books I devoured. When I listen to an audio book, I know I’m really into it when I have great books sitting on my kindle waiting for me to read, but I’m finding inconsequenti...
