*I was sent a copy of Clean by Juno Dawson in exchange for an honest review*
Juno is one of my favourite authors. I adore her writing and her characters and the daring aspects to her work. She pushes the boundaries of YA and that’s so refreshing to read, and definitely something i think younger YA readers are owed.

I read Sara Barnard’s second novel, A Quiet Kind Of Thunder in 2017, and it ended up being one of my favourite books of the year. I adored that there was something different to that teen romance story, and the fact that her writing was so easy to read and memorable. I fell in love with her writing style.

Our LGBTQ+ book club pick of the month has been David Levithan’s Two Boys Kissing, a novel in which i picked up a number of years ago and couldn’t really get my head around enough to be invested in reading it. I knew choosing it as a book club pick meant that i’d have to read it, which was great for my progress in reading everything David Levithan has ever written.

For a long time, i kept my eye out for Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard. It was a huge book a few years ago at the time of release and even was chosen to be a part of Zoella’s WHSmith Book Club. However, i lost interest and the story seemed a little too young for me and i forgot about it. When A Quiet Kind Of Thunder was announced, my ears pricked up again at the thought of the author i let go a few years back. This storyline sounded a little bit more up my alley and really did intrigue me. I had to get around to reading it ASAP.
