Such an AMAZING READ. Thank you Mia Hoddell for writing this !
Review Update !

Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.


This book has stunned me in so many ways. What I wasn’t prepared for was knowing how much I could possibly be loving this book. I literally lived the pages, not read them. I know how it feels to always feel not good enough, always be criticized. Give this book to introverts and they’ll fall for it instantly.

It’s so well and beautifully written, it is more than just another YA novel. This book is meant to open people’s eyes as to what an introvert is and what it actually means – being one is not a problem, or an issue or an illness. It is just the way someone is born. We aren’t the ones who choose the way we are born, all we can do is learn to accept the way we or the others are.

Not Enough is the story of a young girl named Neve, who had to bear her mothers criticism, awful comments or powerful words for all of her life. She’s always made her feel like she wasn’t good enough no matter what she did or achieved. For her mum, all that really mattered was for her to go out, spend time around people,building up a life for her – a life that didn’t make Neve happy.

Good thing though, she had Blake, her lifetime best friend who stood by her everytime. Helped her pick up the broken pieces of her heart, soul and dreams. What Blake does not know is that Neve wanted to take her life once. Afraid that if she would tell him all of her darkest fears and thoughts that are going on he’ll leave, she decides to keep it all a secret until time felt right.

If you want to know how their story will end, you MUST READ the book. But prepare yourself cause you’ll need some tissues along the way.


About Cristina

I started this blog for quite a few reasons: 1. To share my opinions about books I read. (I'm open to recommendations) 2. To express myself in the only way that I love,which is of course writing 3. To connect with people with whom I may share the same interests I read and write because it offers me an escape door from the world we live in. A door which allows me to be whomever I want to be, live wherever in this big world,set off on adventures and most of all because it brings my imagination back to life from its very very long sleep. And of course...Because I love to !! Here are some basic things about your host and writer.. My name is Cristina and I come from Bucharest ( also known as The Little Paris ) were I was born, raised and am currently - still - living. I’ve finished my studies a few years ago and got my bachelor degree at Dimitrie Cantemir University, in my hometown; in Economics. I have to admit that this specialty wasn't my first choice. I have been weighing my choices – as in, to what they can provide me in future – both while I was still in high school and after. Initially I wanted to go to Foreign Languages, but I had a big fall the moment I saw that it wasn't acredited – huge disappointment washed over me. I am still a bit disappointed about that to be honest. I have a huge passion for writing ever since I was little, and even if I had times when I didn't (or couldn't) write anything, now I am right back on track. My dad is the only one who knows how much passion I put into what I write and doesn't giggle or grin when I bring it up. I love having someone’s support no matter how little it is,it still means so much to me. Love, Cris ♥ Hope that those who will follow me like what I post around here and - why not - maybe give some ideas about new topics. :) If anyone wants to add something on the blog please contact me at
