Young adult novels are very new to the world of fiction. Teen books have been around for quite some time now, with the first book aimed at teenagers released in the 1950’s.

November brought a lot of reading dread that was heightened by the ever closer end to the reading challenge of 2017. I had a really bad reading month back in October, and i really wanted to improve on it in November to make a final push towards my end of year goal of 52 books. I’m pretty pleased with how this month went, however i know it could have gone a little better. Here’s what i managed to get around to reading…
The time is upon us, and that time is Christmas time. Each year so far on the blog we’ve organised a Christmas Read-Along. Mainly so myself and Sophie have an excuse to read something together. But last year so many of you got involved in our read-along of My True Love Gave To Me it became a whole lot more community based and exciting! It fueled us to do a very similar event this year!
