The Crimes Of Grindelwald – Movie Chat

There has been a lot of talk about this movie in the last few months, mostly bad, but some good. It hindered my thoughts of the movie going in to it, and honestly i had a bad taste in my mouth before i even stepped in to the cinema screen. But i wanted to try it out.

Noah Could Never by Simon James Green

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

Noah Can’t Even was one of my few five star books of 2017, and i absolutely adored it. It has a laugh out loud moment on every page and Simon writes a tragic teenager perfectly. I was hoping i’d find Noah Could Never to be exactly the same. Thank God i wasn’t disappointed.

My Heart Goes Bang – Keris Stainton

I’ve heard endless good things about Keris’ books in the last few years, however despite actually attending an writing workshop with her once, i’ve only just gotten around to reading one of her books. My Heart Goes Bang was not on my radar at all, that was until all my friends started to give it five stars.

Skylarks by Karen Gregory

*This review will contain spoilers*

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 – Blog Tour

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.

Reading Before YALC

chatI know Sarah has posted/tweeted a fair bit about YALC and the books she is reading in preparation but I haven’t really gotten as involved. I’ve been having a break from social media lately and I’ve barely been using it (my replies are shockingly late and I’m sorry!) so I haven’t really posted my YALC TBR or anything much to do with it. I have however been reading a lot to try and get the ones I’m most excited about read. Continue reading

Goodbye, Perfect by Sara Barnard

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

I read Sara Barnard’s second novel, A Quiet Kind Of Thunder in 2017, and it ended up being one of my favourite books of the year. I adored that there was something different to that teen romance story, and the fact that her writing was so easy to read and memorable. I fell in love with her writing style.
