    I toyed with the idea of not writing a review for this book. Which might give you some initial insight as to why it?s unrated. Hopefully the review itself will explain why but also might explain why you might still want to read it yourself. First of all, our main character has pre...

    A bi-questioning religious girl with anxiety that includes intrusive thoughts? Hot damn did I connect with this book hard. I really love the way Henry writes about religion in YA and honestly after this one it's probably gonna keep me coming back to her forever. I thought this was real...

    I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author. Now I will fully admit that i'm relatively ignorant of the Mormon faith other than the fact that they don't drink coffee and Mitt Romney is one. I can't quite speak to the authenticity of the faith specific things BUT I cannot na...

    katie henry has done it again, folks this author knows exactly how to write teenage coming of age stories and this one is no different. it?s the perfect blend of hard hitting topics like growing up with anxiety, struggling to make your parents proud, and accepting your sexuality...

    Let me start off this review by saying this is a great depiction of GAD. As someone with GAD, I thought Henry's portrayal of it with Ellis's inner voice and her journey through therapy were good. I read it and related strongly with the vast majority of Ellis's struggles. I was impresse...

    2.75 stars I received an ARC from HCC Frenzy in exchange for an honest review. TW: Anxiety, intrusive thoughts, substance abuse This is a book that I had really mixed feelings on. I adored Katie Henry's debut "Heretics Anonymous". But unfortunately, this was mostly meh to ...

    I have super mixed feelings about this book. I felt as if the things I liked about it were also the things I disliked about it. Overall I felt the plot fell short, and while I enjoyed the little details of this novel, the story as a whole didn?t cut it for me. I also feel this no...

    First of all, this book has some of the best anxiety rep I?ve ever read. Only two pages in, I was absolutely certain that this was going to be a realistic and respectful portrayal. I thought Katie Henry did a great job of capturing the intrusive thoughts that come with anxiety; I alw...

    People can be complicated and it's great when stories understand that. Ellis Kimball is definitely not a one-note character. But a book is about figuring out how that character moves through the world and expresses herself, and that is where it comes up a little short. Ellis is struggl...

    I?m still trying to gather my thoughts on this even though I finished it two days ago. I?m kind of confused about my feelings towards this so I might update this later on if I have any revelations. ...

    Wow this book was a fascinating look at mental health and religion and just wow. ...

    While I didn't really like Heretics Anonymous, I figured I would give this one a shot but I feel the exact same way about this one. This book yet again had great potential but throws it away. Let's Call It A Doomsday is about two girls who meet in their therapist's waiting room. Ell...

    First of all, this book has some of the best anxiety rep I?ve ever read. Only two pages in, I was absolutely certain that this was going to be a realistic and respectful portrayal. I thought Katie Henry did a great job of capturing the intrusive thoughts that come with anxiety; I alw...

    I toyed with the idea of not writing a review for this book. Which might give you some initial insight as to why it?s unrated. Hopefully the review itself will explain why but also might explain why you might still want to read it yourself. First of all, our main character has pre...

    A bi-questioning religious girl with anxiety that includes intrusive thoughts? Hot damn did I connect with this book hard. I really love the way Henry writes about religion in YA and honestly after this one it's probably gonna keep me coming back to her forever. I thought this was real...

    I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author. Now I will fully admit that i'm relatively ignorant of the Mormon faith other than the fact that they don't drink coffee and Mitt Romney is one. I can't quite speak to the authenticity of the faith specific things BUT I cannot na...

    Let me start off this review by saying this is a great depiction of GAD. As someone with GAD, I thought Henry's portrayal of it with Ellis's inner voice and her journey through therapy were good. I read it and related strongly with the vast majority of Ellis's struggles. I was impresse...

    Katie Henry is a new author that I'll pick up whatever they write. Give me those food -covered books! She's always really funny too! Katie Henry has such an interesting take on a depth of things. I was surprised to be reading from the perspective of a Mormon girl; I was even more su...

    I have read a LOT of contemporary YA. Since before I was a part of its target audience to now, at the ripe old age of 30. This book is wholly unique to my reading experience. And it is FANTASTIC. I'm not sure I've ever come across such a viscerally painted depiction of anxiet...

    I?m still trying to gather my thoughts on this even though I finished it two days ago. I?m kind of confused about my feelings towards this so I might update this later on if I have any revelations. ...

    Review coming soon! *Advance reader copy provided by the publisher in exchange for my honest opinions. ...

    2.75 stars I received an ARC from HCC Frenzy in exchange for an honest review. TW: Anxiety, intrusive thoughts, substance abuse This is a book that I had really mixed feelings on. I adored Katie Henry's debut "Heretics Anonymous". But unfortunately, this was mostly meh to ...

    I have super mixed feelings about this book. I felt as if the things I liked about it were also the things I disliked about it. Overall I felt the plot fell short, and while I enjoyed the little details of this novel, the story as a whole didn?t cut it for me. I also feel this no...

    First of all, this book has some of the best anxiety rep I?ve ever read. Only two pages in, I was absolutely certain that this was going to be a realistic and respectful portrayal. I thought Katie Henry did a great job of capturing the intrusive thoughts that come with anxiety; I alw...

    People can be complicated and it's great when stories understand that. Ellis Kimball is definitely not a one-note character. But a book is about figuring out how that character moves through the world and expresses herself, and that is where it comes up a little short. Ellis is struggl...

    I?m still trying to gather my thoughts on this even though I finished it two days ago. I?m kind of confused about my feelings towards this so I might update this later on if I have any revelations. ...

    Wow this book was a fascinating look at mental health and religion and just wow. ...

    Reread, finished copy, August 2019 via audiobook: I liked this even more the second time around! The representation alone deserves ALL of the stars! This was a great audiobook as well! It might be something of a 4.5 star read! Original ARC review, April 2019: I was very lucky to r...

    *Note: After looking at other reviews I thought I should add that while I'm not Mormon/LDS I did go to school with a lot of Mormon kids and had them as close friends. Maybe because my family was conservative Christian and we had a lot in common. So I'm pretty familiar with the faith an...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight . Let's Call it a Doomsdaytackled a few pretty tough topics, and overall handled it quite well. Ellis has an anxiety disorder, which she is in therapy for. She's of the Mo...

    I absolutely loved this! Exactly what I was hoping for from the brains that brought me one of my truest loves, Heretics Anonymous. ...

    *I probably could have written twice as much, but didn't want my review to be too long.* There is something about Katie Henry's writing that is so funny, but yet she covers serious topics and I always learn something from her. Ellis lives with her parents and sister in Be...

    I loved the character growth and how it dealt with mental illness, queerness and religion and the intersection of those. The main character is Mormon, has anxiety and realizes she might be queer. ...

    While I didn't really like Heretics Anonymous, I figured I would give this one a shot but I feel the exact same way about this one. This book yet again had great potential but throws it away. Let's Call It A Doomsday is about two girls who meet in their therapist's waiting room. Ell...

    I think a ton of readers will relate to Ellis in one way or another - the process questioning of what you've always known and the struggle to find answers about yourself and your deepest beliefs. The main character is Ellis, who has Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I've never seen int...

    Whoever designed this cover probably ate Andy Warhol's soul and then ate a lot of tomatoes. ...

    Katie Henry is a new author that I'll pick up whatever they write. Give me those food -covered books! She's always really funny too! Katie Henry has such an interesting take on a depth of things. I was surprised to be reading from the perspective of a Mormon girl; I was even more su...

    I have read a LOT of contemporary YA. Since before I was a part of its target audience to now, at the ripe old age of 30. This book is wholly unique to my reading experience. And it is FANTASTIC. I'm not sure I've ever come across such a viscerally painted depiction of anxiet...

    i think i enjoyed this, but honestly it was really hard to read for me because of the topics it covered and how it hit a little too close to home. not a bad book by any means, just kinda left me feeling anxious. ...

    4.5 stars ...

    Henry has an incredible voice, and managed to make me both laugh and cry. Her debut was very good, but I LOVED this book. ...

    I don't know what I think, but I swear it was all in my mind a moment ago. (I'll come back with an actual review, I promise.) ...

    Great audio narrator ...

    What a great read. I sped through this book (cutting it a little close to when I was supposed to leave for work, oops!), and loved how Katie Henry dealt with the complicated issues of religion and mental illness. We see both of these through a lens of compassion and pragmatism. The goo...

    This review is posted on both my personal account and the account for Crossroads Public Library. Ellis has General Anxiety Disorder and her life revolves around what if's. What if an earthquake strikes, what if there's a tsunami, what if a volcano erupts and covers the world in ash?...

    I toyed with the idea of not writing a review for this book. Which might give you some initial insight as to why it?s unrated. Hopefully the review itself will explain why but also might explain why you might still want to read it yourself. First of all, our main character has pre...

    A bi-questioning religious girl with anxiety that includes intrusive thoughts? Hot damn did I connect with this book hard. I really love the way Henry writes about religion in YA and honestly after this one it's probably gonna keep me coming back to her forever. I thought this was real...

    I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author. Now I will fully admit that i'm relatively ignorant of the Mormon faith other than the fact that they don't drink coffee and Mitt Romney is one. I can't quite speak to the authenticity of the faith specific things BUT I cannot na...
