Noah Can’t Even was one of my few five star books of 2017, and i absolutely adored it. It has a laugh out loud moment on every page and Simon writes a tragic teenager perfectly. I was hoping i’d find Noah Could Never to be exactly the same. Thank God i wasn’t disappointed.

The Book Shop Holiday – The Book Shop Series

I’ve not talked about it a great deal on the blog, but for about a year, myself and my dad had been planning to take a trip to the England/Wales boarder to visit Hereford. We’d heard a  lot about Hereford, or more importantly Hay-On-Wye. Hay-On-Wye is famous for having the U.K’s largest concentration of independent bookshops within about five streets of each other. Obviously for a father-daughter trio obsessed with books, it seemed like the perfect trip.

Book Blogging & Mental Health

chatI have a bit of a strange relationship with blogging, reading and generally keeping up with the book blogging community lately. I know I’ve never been the most present on our Twitter and Sarah writes most of the posts for the blog but I’ve felt quite isolated in the online community recently. The reasons are nothing to do with anyone in it but my state of mind right now. This post is mainly just me wanting to vent a little about my conflicting thoughts and also to ask if anyone else has felt similar or has any tips!

August 2018 Wrap-Up

I’ve come to assume that because i’ve been having great reading months, a slump is just around the corner. I don’t think that the slump has hit yet, however my reading speed is slowing down again to a much more ‘normal’ pace for me. I’ve read some books that i’ve really loved in August though, so i’m happy for my pace to be continuing on at this speed. Continue reading

My Heart Goes Bang – Keris Stainton

I’ve heard endless good things about Keris’ books in the last few years, however despite actually attending an writing workshop with her once, i’ve only just gotten around to reading one of her books. My Heart Goes Bang was not on my radar at all, that was until all my friends started to give it five stars.
