November 2018 Wrap-Up

After hitting my reading target last month, i figured my reading would slack a little if i’m honest. Then again, i do have the idea that i want to end my year of great reading on a high note, and continue to read books that i know i’ll love. Either way, i ended up having a much better reading month than i anticipated.

The Crimes Of Grindelwald – Movie Chat

There has been a lot of talk about this movie in the last few months, mostly bad, but some good. It hindered my thoughts of the movie going in to it, and honestly i had a bad taste in my mouth before i even stepped in to the cinema screen. But i wanted to try it out.

October 2018 Book Haul

I knew October would be a little bit of a buying month. I had some days with bookish friends planned and some new bookshops in and out of the country to explore, so I knew I’d return with some exciting things. The month started with Bookshop Day and ended with some exciting author events, a perfect excuse to make a few book purchases.

I am still finding it hard to process that i’ve actually met Becky and Adam. It felt like i’d been waiting years for this event, and honestly i was stunned that it happened at all. They’re such huge names in YA and even the world now after the success of Love, Simon and it was wonderful to hear them talk in Manchester.

October 2018 Wrap-Up

The end of October has reached us and how is the end of the year right around the corner? I feel like it’s just hitting me and i’m now cold and sad.

Our LGBTQ+ Book Club pick a few months ago was Ramona Blue. It’s been on my shelf for a few months now and i had been very excited about getting around to it, luckily so was everyone at book club! I’ve also had Dumplin’ on my shelves for a while, maybe this was the push i need to read everything else Julie has written.

What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bI think What If It’s Us has been the most anticipated book of the year for so many people. It feels so strange that we’ve been waiting for this for so long and all of a sudden it’s out and released and we’re all able to read it. I picked up a copy of it when myself and Sophie were in Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago so i could get a head start (and also i much prefer the U.S. cover to the U.K.).
