*Thanks to Scholastic for sending me a review copy of A Sky Painted Gold*
I’d heard so many lovely things about this book. Constant good reviews and because of this, i wondered why there wasn’t a huge buzz around it like i expected.

I was expecting some kind of book haul in February. It’s my birthday, which is a big mix of gifts, treats for myself (surely i’m not the only person who treats themselves on their birthday?) and holidays.

Which means not many of you will be aware that our LGBTQ+ book club pick for November and December is If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo.

I picked up Penny Joelson’s debut novel ahead of YALC this year, knowing she was attending. Admittedly, i knew absolutely nothing going in to this book. I’d read the back and although it reveals it’s a mystery, it doesn’t give much more information. However, when you start reading, it reveals a lot quickly.

Every reader has a wish list. Most of us keep them stocked up on Book Outlet or Amazon, and i am no different. I have a lot of books on my wish list that are waiting for me to buy them. Recently i’ve started to only buy books that have been added to my wish list, in order to keep my TBR pile down (ha) and make sure i’m only buying the books that i really do intend on reading. Here’s a little look at my wish list currently!

The next few months seem to be very exciting for new and upcoming books. I never thought i’d have such a busy September, October and November with new releases, but everyone seems to be releasing books at the moment! There are some that i cannot wait to get my hands on. Nicola Yoon, Lauren Oliver and Ransom Riggs are all releasing titles before the year is up. Here is a little list of books that i’m excited about, and you should keep on your radar.
