The Inexplicable Logic Of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz

Book Review Header

I don’t know how long i’ve waited to read another book by Benjamin Alire Saenz, but it’s been an incredibly long time. I feel in love with Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe when i first read it, and it’s still one of my favourite books today. When i heard about The Inexplicable Logic of My Life i knew i had to pick it up as soon as possible.

The Unpredictability Of Being Human by Linni Ingemundsen (Blogmas)

Book Review Header

I received an ARC of this novel at a bloggers event recently, and i did not catch my eye at first. I’d heard nothing about this story previously, and the general jist of it did not seem up my street anymore. However in the bid to complete my end of year reading challenge, i picked it up hoping it would be a quick read.

David Inside Out by Lee Bantle – Review

Book Review Header

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I very rarely reply to emailed about reviewing books. They’re often stories i’m very uninterested in and something i would never pick up. However, with our LGBTQ+ book club happening all year and the promise of a ‘coming to terms with sexuality’ story, i decided i’d give this one a go. I was hoping for a heartfelt tale of a young boy figuring himself out, something that i’ve not seen successfully written so far in YA. I didn’t get that.

BEDM: Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han – Review

Jenny Han is one of my favourite YA contemporary authors and i absolutely devoured the first two books in her Lara-Jean trilogy. When Always and Forever, Lara Jean was announced, i was skeptical about ruining a good thing that she had going so far. I’m still unsure on that having now finished the trilogy.

October 2015 Wrap-Up

Wrap Up Header

October my first month back at University full time, as a result my third year work has started to pile up! This has sadly meant that I haven’t had much time to read for pleasure (text books definitely do NOT count even if you love your subject.) That being said I’ve managed to get through quite a few of books that I wanted to get to this month and managed to read 5 in total before our Halloween Read-Along started!

Aristotle & Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe By Benjamin Alire Saenz

Book Review Header

If I’ve ever judged a book too soon in to reading it was this one. I started reading Aristotle and Dante for BookTubeAThon 2015 and as I finished it I didn’t think much of the novel, leaving myself wondering why it got so many awards. But as more time passed and I got to thinking about what the story is actually about my mind changed completely
