* The book discussed in this post was gifted by the publisher.

I have constant faith in Usbourne books. They’re fantastic, inclusive and usually just an absolute dream to read. When i heard about Nothing Ever Happens Here, I knew it would be something i absolutely loved and wanted to share with you all.

Separating The Book From The Author

chat

In light of recent events and news articles (the specifics are not something i’m going to be going in to in this post), i wanted to talk a little about about the separation between an author and their books. If we should have that divide, if it’s morally right or if anyone even wants to.

The Places I’ve Cried In Public by Holly Bourne

*The book talked about in this post was gifted from Usborne
*Trigger warnings for mental illness and abusive relationships

I was so excited to get my hands on this book. Holly writes incredible YA fiction (and an adult novel debut), and they always focus on something that isn’t discussed very often or in-depth. When i found out that The Place I’ve Cried… was all about an abusive relationship that had broken down, i jumped at it.

Because i’ve already talked about ones that i actually like (and because this list is probably longer), i wanted to talk about the ones that i hate.

A Chat about The Perks of Being a Wallflower (BEDM)

I’ve been rereading The Perks of Being a Wallflower for this months book club (Thursday 30th May – come along if you wish!) and I’ve been really enjoying reading it for the third time. It’s different reading it now compared to when I first read it in my teens and then later at maybe 20. I’m now 24 and I still really appreciate it a lot. Continue reading

Dumplin’ Film Chat (BEDM)

Now, I haven’t actually read Dumplin’ but I watched the film on Netflix the other day and I absolutely loved it. A lot of people have recommended me both the book and the film adaptation but I just never fully fancied it. I wasn’t sure if I’d be a fan. However, I’m now right on the hype (better late than never). Continue reading
