Review of ✨OCDANIEL✨This book in 3 words: personal, triumphant, endearing

Daniel is a typical middle-schooler. He’s concerned about being the kicker of his football team, his crush, keeping straight-As, who he’ll go the dance with, and what high school will bring. The only thing is, he’s keeping a secret from all his friends and family—his “zaps,” the “great space,” “the ritual.” He doesn’t understand what compels him to have crippling anxiety or panic if he doesn’t act out his compulsions. A girl who is bullied as “psycho Sarah” helps him find names and meaning in his thoughts and behaviors.

SO, friends, this is objectively like a 3.5/4. HOWEVER, this is 1000000% the book I needed starting in like 2nd grade when my own obsessions began. I kept them (mostly) hidden from my friends, but my parents knew of what I called “the big worry,” the obsessive thought/fear that I felt controlled me for months or years. Then it would change shape into a new fear. I didn’t have compulsive behaviors, but I would sleep. Sleep was the only time I could shut my mind off, so I would sleep for all hours I wasn’t in school. This continued in some form until college when I finally went to therapy and found a medication that worked. That’s when I found out I’m not the only one, just like Daniel.

But the beautiful thing about this book is that Daniel isn’t only his illness. His story isn’t just that of his tragedy!! There’s joy, humor, and everything a “normal” boy experiences too! Like Sarah said in the book, “...even though were extraordinary, I think we could still use a little help.” For me, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ big personal stars

"You're a pocket full of sunshine. You're so adorable I could eat you!" His words weren't enough though. He said them so many times that he thought they've lost their value. So he got up earlier that morning. He went into the kitchen and prepared a special lunch box. And he made sure it was clear how he felt... .

How many people are actually working on improving themselves? How many people say to themselves that they want to read more? 🙋🏾‍♀️. My goal was 24 books a year. I had to start somewhere. I’m still working on it. The average person reads 2 to 3 books a year. Meanwhile the Average CEO reads 52 books a year (approx. 4-5 per month). What does that tell you ?🤷🏿‍♀️💆🏾‍♀️ If you want to be more, Do More, have more you must start working out that brain 🧠 in order to become more. You Must Read more. Fun Fact: Warren Buffet reads about 6 hours a day. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “Success leaves clues”.... well its true. 💆🏾‍♀️ 📖

His and hers, coffee edition. Can you guess who has the 12 ouncer? ☕️I think morning dates are severely under appreciated. It’s cheaper, less busy, and there’s nothing better than lightning fast conversations fueled by caffeine imo.John doesn’t read books, but he’s (usually) down to listen to me talk about them. The one book we both listened to together was the Autobiography of Gucci Mane. SO GOOD.

Does your partner read? Who do you discuss books with irl?

“The older you get, the more you realize you have no desire for drama, conflict and any kind of intensity. You just want a cozy home, a nice book and a person who knows how you drink your coffee” - unknown .

Can you think of anything more opposite? Two individuals of the same species who have lived, worked, hunted, ate, traveled, loved, and battled together since the dawn of humanity. Probably before. Yet we still to this day struggle to understand one another. Not because we can't understand, but because we choose not to listen. Neither of us is more important than the rest. You are as essential to my survival as I am to yours. We are here together let us not forget that was the point from the beginning. To be together.

I’m so thankful @doubledaybooks sent me this book! 💕After busting through so many middle grade, a slow journey through literary fiction is just what I needed. FRUIT OF THE DRUNKEN TREE is wonderful so far. I took the advice of all you bookstagrammers and am setting time for required reading and pleasure reading.

How do you like to switch up the genre you’re reading?
