As soon as i saw this book announced way back in 2018, i knew i had to read it. Girl in a hot dog costume on the front cover AND LGBTQ+ rep? Count me in. I’ve become quite fond of the niche market of books based in theme parks/arcades or festivals, so this was right up my street.

This Is Going To Hurt by Adam Kay (Blogmas)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

This Is Going To Hurt came to my attention a good few months ago now, and i had absolutely no idea what to think about it. I knew it was an honest account of working in the NHS from a Junior Doctors point of view, but i knew very little about Adam Kay and honestly didn’t know what to expect from the book. A lot of people were encouraging me to pick this up, even though it’s a little out of my comfort zone, and i’m so incredibly glad i did.

I feel ashamed that i’ve never finished a Victoria Schwab book until City Of Ghosts. I’ve always wanted to pick up one of her books, but the length of most of them intimidated me quite a lot, so when i found out she was releasing a middle-grade ghost book, i jumped at picking it up as soon as it landed in shops.

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.

Starfish was one of my favourite reads of this year, i know the year isn’t done but i can’t imagine much will beat it for me. It was stunningly written and had wonderful characters. So admittedly i had extremely high hopes for Summer Bird Blue when i picked it up, and i’m glad it didn’t disappoint. Continue reading
