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.
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 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.
*A big thanks to a pal Kimi for letting me read her advanced copy of this book!*
For any of you who are new around here, i absolutely adore the entire Fletcher family. Every single one of them. Having read every book that Tom and Giovanna have released separately now, i thought that Eve Of Man would be my absolute dream book. I wish i hadn’t have found it so ‘meh’.
I was expecting some kind of book haul in February. It’s my birthday, which is a big mix of gifts, treats for myself (surely i’m not the only person who treats themselves on their birthday?) and holidays. I’m going to stop presuming they’ll be no more book hauls and just accept that i really like books. Here are the ones that i got in the month of February, it’s quite a substantial haul.

We all spend a lot of time on the internet talking about what we do. We read this thing, we play this game, we like this band. However, we don’t often discuss things that we don’t do. There are many genres that bloggers don’t read from, me included, and i want to talk a little bit about genres that i barely read from, or think i will never read from.
