Hello, I’m Ami-May.
Welcome to my blog.
My blog name is Shyla’s Uncensored Opinions (well obviously Ami, I can read 😂)
Who is Shyla? Well, she is my beautiful cat of course. And believe me, if she was human and could talk, she would definitely tell you her opinions.
I mean just look at that face, it’s like she is silently judging you.
I started reading when I was young, started off with Jaqueline Wilson then into my teenage years and even now my favorite author has to be Cathy Glass. Her book ‘CUT’ struck a chord with me. I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder at 18. So at the time, I was reading this, I was a self-harmer. So to read about another teenagers fight with self-harm and suicide. It really helped me feel less alone. I’ve read most of her books. I am excited to read her new book as Lisa Stone ‘ Darkness Within’ & Her other new book ‘Cruel to be kind’ coming out on the 9th September.
Anyway, I fell out of love with life I think and stopped reading. But the last two years, I have picked it up again. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and M.E/CFS. But before that, I was heavily into crafting. Knitting, Card-making, and Sewing. But I got too ill to continue. I couldn’t sit there for hours and hours printing, cutting, and sewing, unfortunately, I do miss it sometimes. So that is why and where this chapter begins.
This blog is my little contribution to the world. For the authors and for you as a reader. This is my outlet. My way to connect to the world and communicate with book lovers or what the book community has to offer.
This blog will offer completely honest book reviews, where not being perfect or following trends is okay. Where profanity is fucking compulsory in this day and age. I do apologize for my readers who don’t like any form of profanity, please replace them with something pretty or miss them out altogether.
My reviews may be long and detailed or short and sweet, it all comes down to the book, plot/story, what I liked and disliked plus lots of other reasons.
Book Reviews are being accepted (August 2017)
Reading is something, I can do wherever and whenever. After all, reading is life. With Cats and books, you can’t go wrong at all in life.
I love reading about true life events such as child abuse, abuse, and life’s torments. As well as crime, mystery, thrillers, chick lit, romance, young adult, general fiction, true crime and non-fiction etc I’m not completely fussy. I will give any genre a try and I love finding new books and authors.
