This was one of the first books I picked up at YALC and I do not regret it. It’s also the first Katherine Webber book I have read and I now can’t wait to pick up Wing Jones. The story of this is so beautiful and I really do rate it highly. Continue reading
I was asked by the wonderful Faye at Clink Street Publishing to take part in the 12 Days Of Clink Street Blog Tour this Christmas. I really love doing events like this over the festive period because i love the inclusivity of it and having everyone work together over Christmas is just a nice feeling.

It’s been a very long time since we’ve added to this series, but when it first started a few years back, i adored writing for it.
