It’s not often i choose to write about a memoir on the blog, because i always find it a strange thing to talk about someones life critically. However, after finishing Uncomfortable Labels i know i haven’t heard as much about this book as i should have done and i think it’s wonderful. If this post helps one person pick up this book, i’ve done my job.Continue reading “Uncomfortable Labels By Laura Kate Dale”

One Italian Summer by Keris Stainton
A couple of years ago, i completely fell in love with My Heart Goes Bang by Keris Stainton. It’s an absolutely adorable story about your first year at university, and it made me want to read everything else she’s written.
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
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 recently reread the book which I think is the third time I have read it now and wanted to give a review as I don’t think I have ever reviewed this novel before!

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!

Meat Market by Juno Dawson
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.
Gmorning, Gnight! by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Illustrated by Jonny Sun) (BEDM)
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.
