(This is a review from December 2019)
As you might know from my previous blog post, i’ve been really in to rom-com’s and contemporary novels at the moment. Light and easy reads that make your heart happy. I decided amongst that thought to pick up the newly released 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston. A festive read full of promising contemporary cute moments.

I have constant faith in Usbourne books. They’re fantastic, inclusive and usually just an absolute dream to read. When i heard about Nothing Ever Happens Here, I knew it would be something i absolutely loved and wanted to share with you all.
Hello! Last week we had our first Book Club meet up of the year and it was our biggest yet which is so amazing! It was lovely to see faces old and new joining us to chat all things queer, specifically Girl Mans Up by M-E Girard. It’s a contemporary YA book that follows Pen, a queer protagonist who is struggling mainly with how others see her.

Not So Pure and Simple is a book that i was really excited about being released in 2020. I’ve had a proof copy for a couple of months and finally got around to reading it before its release, i read it, i absolutely loved it.
I can’t believe another year has gone, and i’m writing another wrap-up! It feels like no time at all since i did the last wrap-up of the year. 2019 has been one of my greatest reading years so far, and i’ve really enjoyed dipping in to new genres, reading loads of gay books and having loads of fun with my reading choices!
We haven’t done a ton of blog tours recently but this one jumped out because I’ve been wanting to read Paper Avalanche for quite a while. Sarah loves it and told me I would definitely like it and she was very right! This is the first book of Lisa Williamson’s I’ve read (not including her sections in Floored) and the story was fantastic. I was lucky enough to be gifted this book – read on for details and all of my thoughts! Continue reading

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Three Things I Know Are True from Harper Teen a little while ago, and although this book isn’t out until January, i thought i’d get my thoughts out now and make ya’ll excited to read it!
