*The book discussed in this post was kindly gifted by Electric Monkey.
I was ridculously excited when the new release by Laura Steven dropped through my door a couple of weeks ago. It was posed to me as a gay rom-com, that was full of fun. I admittedly haven’t finished one of Laura’s books before, not due to a dislike, it’s just not something i’ve ever felt was completely in the genre of what i liked. The Love Hypothesis changed that completely for me.

*I received a copy of Sam and Ilsa’s Last Hurrah in exchange for an honest review*
I’ve been excited for this book to be released for a while, as many of you may know, i absolutely adore David Levithan and his co-written books with Rachel Cohn are always an easy read with wonderful characters. I’m very happy to say that this one was no different.

Lisa Heathfield is an author that seems to have passed me by. None of her books have instantly stood out to me and i’ve never bought one before. That was until Charlotte from Wonderfully Bookish told me to read Paper Butterflies, and then very quickly afterwards told me to read Fight Of A Starling. I bought myself a copy of Flight Of A Starling going in a little blind, i had very little idea of the story, and wasn’t overly intrigued. Does anyone else ever find their favourite books that way?

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.

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. This week i’ll be thinking about the publishing houses and what great books i think they produce. If you browse through your shelves often, you’ll notice that many of your favourite books are all from the same publishers. They generally have a set ‘type’ of novel they are looking for, and someone who often reads the same genre will be used to buying from the same publisher knowingly. As a bit of a creative writing nerd (i studied it at university), publishing houses intrigue me. Here are my favourite publishing houses.

I was in need of a fairly quick read to get in to before the Halloween Read-Along this year, so I picked up Marly’s Ghost by David Levithan. Considering I am quite a big Levithan fan, I feel like I’ve not read as many of his books as I should have done. I own almost all of them but they’re all sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. Diving in to a short one seemed like a good idea even though the valentines theme was incredibly out of season in October!
