    Heretics Anonymous 6/5 Stars. Heretics Anonymous is a fascinating and humorous examination of faith and tolerance. This novel has quickly become an all-time favorite of mine. Check out my non-spoiler video review!: https://t.co/77hRxWGmPD CW: slut shaming, homophobia (both chal...

    3.5 stars. One of my favourite things is reading about experiences I?m not familiar with so I can participate in them vicariously through the characters. For example, I never attended a Catholic private school. And even if my middle school had a ??Religion?? class, I w...

    I knew I'd like this book before I even started, so here I AM, saying GOOD BOOK. It's such a call-out to hypocrisy, mixed in with messy and loveable characters and enough weird and gruesome facts about history and saints to make me think fondly of my childhood of reading those Horrible...

    Michael has tried to stay positive. But after his family moves for the fourth time in 10 years?and a month and a half into his junior year of high school, no less?he's starting to lose himself. Especially this time, when his parents have enrolled him at St. Clare's, a prestigious C...

    First of all, I?ll preface this review by saying I think that I get to look at this one from a pretty unique angle. I was raised in an extremely religious and strict Christian household, and though it wasn?t Catholicism, there was SO MUCH in this book that I could relate to 100% fr...

    I didn?t hate this, but it definitely did not live up to the hype for me. Mega womp ? I didn?t hate this, but it definitely did not live up to the hype for me. Mega womp ?? ...more ...

    Audiobook narrated by Michael Crouch Every once in a while I listen to a voice that I think is so darn good I have to look up the person. Michael Crouch was terrific AS WAS THIS BOOK! A few words about Michael Crouch first ( he is the narrator for the character named Michael, too,...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read and very enjoyable. As someone who is studying a Religion minor, this book was very informative. There were things that I haven't learnt yet but they were discussed in here. I do highly recommend you read this ...

    3.5 stars A very rare YA novel that dares to talk about religion. It challenges Catholic dogma, while being understanding and respectful of faith in general - not a small fit. I found the YA part much less compelling, the main characters felt like carriers of traits rather than ...

    this was SO GOOD that I feel like it?s unfair to any other YA books about religion, you know? because it gets it. it reminds you that educating yourself about religion and understanding it is different than actually believing in it. it pushes this message that we are all capable of l...

    An atheist at a Catholic school falls in with a group of kids who want to undermine the school's authority -- and also falls in love with a devout Catholic girl. I love books with religious themes and loved that this tackled issues like whether teachers at a religious school can and...

    Probably 4.5 stars RTC ____ Will someone please give this humble atheist an ARC of this book where the word atheist is actually mentioned on page instead of glossed over just like in every YA book ...

    I really enjoyed this book as it?s so different from any other YA novel I?ve yet to read. I resonates so much with Michael?s fury about moving. Although my experience wasn?t the same and didn?t last into my teens, i moved schools every single year up until 4th grade so as a ...

    Binge read this book and it was totally worth it. Yes, I'm giving another contemporary five stars! Who knew? The religious diversity was amazing in this book. It also got me thinking on a few things and on biases I have - it was a great book. Highly recommend. RTC - I promise I wil...

    ~I received an eARC~ I cannot think of another book that I have associated with as much as Heretics Anonymous. The cast is so wonderfully diverse--and made a particular effort to give representation and/or mention to every group I can think of when it comes to religion and spiritual...

    i loved this book so much that i couldn?t put it down long enough to mark a quote that i loved, because i would write out this entire book because i loved every single thing about it. the friendship in this book was A+. i also loved how everyone questioned things and i love the e...

    I really enjoyed this book, it was very thought provoking especially on the topics about religion, family, and right and wrong. Also, I loved the main characters voice, he was very witty and made this book easy to fly through. ...

    This book just wasn?t for me. I spent most of my time reading this feeling frustrated. I did enjoy the writing though. ...

    4.5/5 stars Ok so I read this book in four hours straight.....from like midnight to four in the morning....yes, I am a little bit crazy lol. This novel was one of my most anticipated YA contemporary novels of the year and I was so excited when I finally got my hands on this book. It...

    One of my favourite stand alones and contemporaries I've read. The main character is so funny and sarcastic! The group of friends has such a wonderful mixture of views and backgrounds. The school and some hypocrisies within it reminded me a lot of my Catholic high school and as an athe...

    It?s first period and only one person definitely wants me dead. Things are going better than expected. Heretics Anonymous is one of the few (actually the only one I can recall) YA books that talks specifically about a lack of religion. The protagonist - Michael - is an atheist who...

    Heretics Anonymous 6/5 Stars. Heretics Anonymous is a fascinating and humorous examination of faith and tolerance. This novel has quickly become an all-time favorite of mine. Check out my non-spoiler video review!: https://t.co/77hRxWGmPD CW: slut shaming, homophobia (both chal...

    3.5 stars. One of my favourite things is reading about experiences I?m not familiar with so I can participate in them vicariously through the characters. For example, I never attended a Catholic private school. And even if my middle school had a ??Religion?? class, I w...

    I knew I'd like this book before I even started, so here I AM, saying GOOD BOOK. It's such a call-out to hypocrisy, mixed in with messy and loveable characters and enough weird and gruesome facts about history and saints to make me think fondly of my childhood of reading those Horrible...

    Michael has tried to stay positive. But after his family moves for the fourth time in 10 years?and a month and a half into his junior year of high school, no less?he's starting to lose himself. Especially this time, when his parents have enrolled him at St. Clare's, a prestigious C...

    First of all, I?ll preface this review by saying I think that I get to look at this one from a pretty unique angle. I was raised in an extremely religious and strict Christian household, and though it wasn?t Catholicism, there was SO MUCH in this book that I could relate to 100% fr...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read and very enjoyable. As someone who is studying a Religion minor, this book was very informative. There were things that I haven't learnt yet but they were discussed in here. I do highly recommend you read this ...

    3.5 stars A very rare YA novel that dares to talk about religion. It challenges Catholic dogma, while being understanding and respectful of faith in general - not a small fit. I found the YA part much less compelling, the main characters felt like carriers of traits rather than ...

    I really enjoyed this book as it?s so different from any other YA novel I?ve yet to read. I resonates so much with Michael?s fury about moving. Although my experience wasn?t the same and didn?t last into my teens, i moved schools every single year up until 4th grade so as a ...

    Binge read this book and it was totally worth it. Yes, I'm giving another contemporary five stars! Who knew? The religious diversity was amazing in this book. It also got me thinking on a few things and on biases I have - it was a great book. Highly recommend. RTC - I promise I wil...

    It?s first period and only one person definitely wants me dead. Things are going better than expected. Heretics Anonymous is one of the few (actually the only one I can recall) YA books that talks specifically about a lack of religion. The protagonist - Michael - is an atheist who...

    Heretics Anonymous 6/5 Stars. Heretics Anonymous is a fascinating and humorous examination of faith and tolerance. This novel has quickly become an all-time favorite of mine. Check out my non-spoiler video review!: https://t.co/77hRxWGmPD CW: slut shaming, homophobia (both chal...

    3.5 stars. One of my favourite things is reading about experiences I?m not familiar with so I can participate in them vicariously through the characters. For example, I never attended a Catholic private school. And even if my middle school had a ??Religion?? class, I w...

    I knew I'd like this book before I even started, so here I AM, saying GOOD BOOK. It's such a call-out to hypocrisy, mixed in with messy and loveable characters and enough weird and gruesome facts about history and saints to make me think fondly of my childhood of reading those Horrible...

    Michael has tried to stay positive. But after his family moves for the fourth time in 10 years?and a month and a half into his junior year of high school, no less?he's starting to lose himself. Especially this time, when his parents have enrolled him at St. Clare's, a prestigious C...

    First of all, I?ll preface this review by saying I think that I get to look at this one from a pretty unique angle. I was raised in an extremely religious and strict Christian household, and though it wasn?t Catholicism, there was SO MUCH in this book that I could relate to 100% fr...

    Audiobook narrated by Michael Crouch Every once in a while I listen to a voice that I think is so darn good I have to look up the person. Michael Crouch was terrific AS WAS THIS BOOK! A few words about Michael Crouch first ( he is the narrator for the character named Michael, too,...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read and very enjoyable. As someone who is studying a Religion minor, this book was very informative. There were things that I haven't learnt yet but they were discussed in here. I do highly recommend you read this ...

    3.5 stars A very rare YA novel that dares to talk about religion. It challenges Catholic dogma, while being understanding and respectful of faith in general - not a small fit. I found the YA part much less compelling, the main characters felt like carriers of traits rather than ...
