*The book discussed in this post was gifted by Firefly Publishing*

Summer Of No Regrets had been on my radar for a little bit of time prior to it’s release. During the summer, all i want to read is fun stories about friendship and enjoying life, and this seemed exactly what i wanted.

Hello! Uploaded this a little later than planned but hey – read it before bed if you fancy it. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently since there are a lot of highly anticipated new releases out already or coming out soon.

I’ve been rereading The Perks of Being a Wallflower for this months book club (Thursday 30th May – come along if you wish!) and I’ve been really enjoying reading it for the third time. It’s different reading it now compared to when I first read it in my teens and then later at maybe 20. I’m now 24 and I still really appreciate it a lot. Continue reading
