Myself and my very good best pal Charlotte from Wonderfully Bookish found ourselves co-reading Toffee by Sarah Crossan recently. We love a blog hop so decided to review it for each other! That means you can head over to her blog to read my review of Toffee! We really want to make more of an effort with co-blogging, because it’s a lot of fun to take over someone else’s page for a little while, let us know if you like it or have any ideas. Make sure to keep reading for Charlotte’s review!

I’ve been wanting to pick an Orlagh Collins book up for quite some time, and when i heard about All The Invisible Things, her second novel, this one seemed right up my street.

This weeks top 5 Wednesday is about my favourite publishers. This is quite a strange thing for a top 5 Wednesday i think, as we usually think about the books that we’ve read and what did or didn’t like about them.

I finally got around to reading Apple and Rain after receiving it as a Christmas present! I became a little obsessed with Sarah Crossan after reading the absolutely incredible One at the end of last year and wanted to read everything she’s ever wrote ever.

Bloomsbury were kind enough to send me “One” by Sarah Crossan for review last week after I’d seen the cover floating around online. I had very little (okay no) idea what it was actually about and wanted to dive straight in as soon as I found out it was a story about the conjoined twins, Grace and Tippi. Never before had I read anything quite like this, the idea of it seemed exciting and unusual and those are the two things I look for in a book!
