I'm not crying, you're crying.

Tristan is finally checked out of the mental institute, where he meets Zoe, who's visiting her gran. Tristan isn't necessarily over his depression, but he knows all the right things to do and say to make him appear 'normal', whereas Zoe revels in her weirdness and thinks normal is overrated. When they end up working at the same supermarket together, on the same till, Zoe is determined to befriend Tristan who is clearly struggling and needs somebody like her. This book is about

I'm finding it hard to put into words how I feel about this book. It's messed with every emotion in my body.
Every Colour Of You, is told in the points of view of Zoe and Tristan. Tristan is finally released from hospital after getting sectioned. He hates life and really feels like he has nothing to live for. That is until he meets Zoe who loves life and wants to enjoy every minute.
This book really highlights the different aspects of depression and loss, and how it affects people diff
When Tristan meets Zoe, she becomes a splash of colour in a world that’s become very dark. Tristan is suffering from crippling depression following the death of his father but Zoe is determined to make him her friend and help him back onto a path with a hopeful future.

This is a charming book with characters that definitely spill off the page and into your heart. First off I’d like to write about the great representation in this book, not only for mental illness but MI in men as well as women, a

I've had my eyes on this book ever since Amelia revealed the cover on her YouTube-channel. Now I've read it, and I'm sorry to say that this just wasn't very good...

I really didn't like the writing style. I didn't like how the reader was addressed and how they spoke directly to you as a reader. It didn't fit in with the story and ruined the flow of it all. I jumped in time so often and when it was done it was really confusing. We were just told that that time passed,

What is it about?

In a nutshell, the book is about two troubled souls. One consumed with grief and deep dark depression. The other a colourful soul who sees the good in the everyday little things with a positive upbeat attitude.

What happens when their worlds collide is the journey you go on as the reader.

The Cover

The colour is beautiful and it is very relevant to the book, which I love. Also if you have the hardback version you will be in for a heartwarming su

I did not expect this book to make me cry so much, but it was just so beautiful, how could it not? I started reading this book and initially it seemed like just another contemporary romance between two complicated young people. These characters both had complications in their life, things they weren't telling each other, things they weren't telling me the reader, things they weren't telling themselves but when you start to peel back the layers, it was oh so heartbreaking inside.

I am not crying – You are. Or you will be. When you reach, you know, THAT chapter.
What a beautiful, beautiful book. One that played havoc with my emotions and totally broke my heart at the end. I fee like I am saying to much. That I am veering off into spoiler territory, but the truth is I can’t say MUCH without giving too much away.
What I will say though is this. Amelia’s debut ECOY, speaks so honestly about issues which are often considered taboo, especially by younger audiences.

When we first meet Tristan and Zoe they’re in hospital. Tristan is about to be discharged after treatment for depression while Zoe is visiting her gran. One is dull and grey; the other is vibrant and bursting with life. For reasons neither can explain they talk and their curiosity about each other is piqued.
In a series of rather incredible events, the pair end up working together and an unlikely friendship is developed.
Over the course of the book, the main focus is the developing rom

This made me cry on not one but two buses. I loved Tristan and Zoe. I feel like I know them and have been on a journey with them. I want to give them both a hug. This book explores mental health in a very raw and relatable (to me) way. The characters aren't perfect, they struggle and mess up and don't know what to do all the time. I was so sad to finish this book, I didn't want it to be over but I also had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. A strong debut novel, I can't wait t ...more

An emotionally charged read. It is centred around Tristan and Zoe. How Zoe is trying to support Tristan yet, unfortunately, her own life is slowly disintegrating. A book where a box of tissues will be needed close at hand.
Thanks to NetGalley and Little Brown Group Uk for giving me the opportunity to read Every Colour of You.

From the first few pages I was hooked, and knew I was going to love this book. Amelia Mandeville effortlessly draws the reader into the lives of her characters, Zoe and Tree, and lets their voices carry you along on their journey. Before long, I had questions, and theories, and just kept turning the pages because I simply had to know how the story ended. Then, about a hundred pages from the end, I didn't want to continue because I didn't want it to end, didn't want to say goodbye. And that, for ...more

Grab the tissues. This one is an emotional read. With characters that you care for and want to reach through the pages of the book to give them a great big cuddle. A fabulous storyline, with real life hitting issues, tackled beautifully and a storyline with an emotional hold that with have you in its grip from the very beginning.

“It’s like flowers. We always pick the nicest flower, even though we know that once it’s picked it’ll eventually die. I think the earth has its pick too. It chooses the prettiest flowers.”

~A story that truly broke me but managed to piece me together at the same time.

I went into this story quite blindly and I am so thankful that I did this. I began this book really wanting to like it and usually when I do that it can go one of two ways; I either really do like the book, or
WOW. I had no idea what I was getting into. First suggestion: don't read the last quarter of this book in public. Huge thanks to Netgalley and Sphere for a free copy of this to review.

Amelia Mandeville's debut has broken my heart and put it back together again. I absolutely adored this heart wrenching, beautifully tragic novel that tells the story of two unlikely friends and the impact they have on each other's lives.

The book opens with Tristian about to be discharged from a mental health ward where he's been sectioned for 6 months. His crippling depression after the death of his father consumes his entire life. He's not really well enough to leave the ward but staff don't realise that. At the hospital he meets Zoe for the first time and the pair later discover they will be working together.

Every colour of you is the debut novel by YouTuber Amelia Mandeville.
I’m usually the one to shy away from YouTuber books as they tend to be rushed, written poorly and generally disappointing. However, I put these opinions aside to take a chance on Amelia as from watching her videos, she seems very passionate and excited about receiving a genuine book deal- not just because she is a YouTuber.
Amelia definitely has a talent for story-telling which is clearly demonstrated throughout the book. The

Grab your tissues, this is one heck of an emotional rollercoaster! What a book!

The plot follows Zoe and Tristan, who meet early in the story. Both having their own issues, the book is a story of falling apart and picking up the pieces. I loved it. Zoe is determined to help Tristan and put him back together again. However, the harder she tries and the more she does in order to help save Tristan, the more Zoe realises she is struggling herself and her world is crumbling around her.

In all honesty, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book - it does feel like a lot of YouTubers are ‘writing books’ at the moment, however Amelia has always talked about her passion for writing. This is NOT another of those standardised YouTuber books. Yes, there were some parts to the characters that definitely stemmed from Amelia’s own experiences but I never once felt like the character was her; this reads like a truly beautiful piece of fiction and I cannot wait to read more of her work! ...more

I flew through this book so damn fast. Firstly, I'd like to thank Francesca Banks for sending me a copy of this book for an honest review, I really appreciate it and was glad to have gotten a book that I wouldn't have otherwise known to pick up. It was a book that I didn't know I needed.

As someone who fully understands Tristan, I just hadn't read a book like this yet. To be completely honest I steer away from books that really delve into harsh topics, for me personally, I tend to read to forget

"We had a story - short, but not a simple one. I wouldn't be able to stay here and explain it all to you. If you really want to know, you'll have to take time out of your day. You'll have to read it."

When you first read this at the beginning of the book you don't think much about it except that you want to read the book. you start reading, but this text stays with you. Eventually when you're in a certain part of the book you realise what it might mean, but you're wrong. And then when you fi
