I’ve spent a lot of my time in the last couple of years thinking about Alice Oseman’s novels. It’s really hard not to when she writes wonderful stories with wonderful detailing that is hardly ever recognised. Recently, me and some friends co-read Radio Silence and i’ve been thinking about it since.

As we have an LGBTQ+ Book Club, we’re always looking for more LGBTQ+ reads, especially from own voices authors. A couple of years back (long ago when we first started the book club) we read If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo, and i absolutely loved it. I had to get my hands on Birthday at some point to see how it compared, and to read something else from this wonderful own voices author.

Skylarks has been a long time coming read for me. I heard countless good things about this novel before it’s release and it just kept getting more and more hyped as the days went on. I never read Countless, Karen’s debut novel, so i was excited to dive in to her second book and see what the fuss is about. Myself and Sophie chose to read Skylarks for our June book club pick (mainly because it was also a YALC read) as so many people had hyped it.

Floored is officially out for you to buy! Last year at YALC i remember picking up a sampler and being pained about how far away this release felt. Little did i know i had an exciting email to be apart of the Floored blog tour and get involved with the release of it. There have been four posts before mine, and for today’s i’ve written a monologue of my character, Velvet. She’s feisty and all round excellent – i hope you enjoy this little snippet in to her attending the launch party of Floored.

I want to start off by saying that Alex Approximately was my most anticipated novel of 2017. Ever since her debut in 2015, i fell in love with her breezy writing style and fun characters that you could fall in love with whilst they fell in love. All of this added up meant that i definitely was excited for her second release.

For a long time, i kept my eye out for Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard. It was a huge book a few years ago at the time of release and even was chosen to be a part of Zoella’s WHSmith Book Club. However, i lost interest and the story seemed a little too young for me and i forgot about it. When A Quiet Kind Of Thunder was announced, my ears pricked up again at the thought of the author i let go a few years back. This storyline sounded a little bit more up my alley and really did intrigue me. I had to get around to reading it ASAP.
