Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro has been one of my favourite books for many years now – the film is also a favourite of mine! It’s a story I think about fairly often and the three main characters have stayed with me, always feeling very real and unforgettable.

I adore Simon’s books and i’ve never been quiet about that online, or in person, basically i talk about Simon and his books an awful lot!

A few years ago, you may remember that we did a lot of work with Stripes Publishing centred around A Change Is Gonna Come, an incredible anthology with new voices and established authors. Myself and Sophie absolutely fell in love with Yasmin’s story in A Change Is Gonna Come, so when her debut novel got picked up by Hot Key, i couldn’t have been happier.
I’m a huge fan of Juno’s work, and she’s an author that i think i will constantly support for a very very long time to come. Not only is she an incredible woman, her books are ridiculously well written and funny. So all that being said, i had high hopes for Meat Market.
If you know me, you know i have a probably unhealthy love for Lin-Manuel Miranda. I adore all his work and his general attitude has inspired me to no end. So when i heard about Gmorning, Gnight! being released, i was absolutely thrilled to have a book that was completely written by him.
A List of Cages has been on my TBR for a little bit of time now, and finally, once i saw it in a book shop i decided to pick it up. I knew it would be a fast read and something i could get through quickly, so i was saving it for a time when i wanted something to run through fast. I wasn’t expecting to soak up every word and savour this book so much.
I was lucky enough to attend the Queenie event in Manchester a little while ago, which i absolutely adored, so i knew i wanted to get to Queenie as soon as possible to really maximise my time at the event. I started it just before and read enough to get some really good conversations going at the event. You can read about it HERE.
