Hogwarts House Recs: Slytherin – Blogtober

I wanted to start this as a series ages ago and have had the ideas drafted for months but I never got round to it or was feeling it. Now however, I’ve had a resurgence of passion for it. I often associate books or songs with Hogwarts houses – it’s a fairly common thing to do. There’s sometimes just a vibe in a book’s style or theme, a character with specific house traits or just the feeling you get when reading it that makes me sometimes instantly associate a book with a house.

*The book discussed in this post was gifted by Penguin.

When Penguin kindly offered for me to review The Prom, i literally couldn’t say no. Musicals, YA, gay, movie adaptations, there’s very little else i could ask for in a book to be completely honest. So i jumped at the chance and started reading it as soon as it came through my door.

I love doing a tag and I haven’t done one in a good while. I saw Lois from LoisReadsBooks post this one a few months ago and have been meaning to do it ever since. It’s a bit of a longer one but it was a lot of fun (especially since I love making lists and that’s what this felt like!). If you fancy doing this book tag yourself, go for it! Continue reading

I Am Not A Number by Lisa Heathfield – Blogtober

Lisa Heathfield has been one of my auto-buy authors since i picked up Flight of a Starling a couple of years ago. Her writing is absolutely stunning and always covers some more intense topics which i really appreciate. I couldn’t have been happier to see her return to YALC this year with her latest release, I Am Not A Number, and i definitely couldn’t wait to pick it up.
