*Thank you to Penguin for sending me a copy of Lock The Doors for review.
Before this book landed on my door step, i had heard very little about it, and now i can only question why. Lock The Doors kept me hooked, has a great range of characters and discusses some really indepth topics. Here are some of the reasons i think you should pick up Lock The Doors.
It’s been a long time since i’ve sat down and written a review for anything, so in some ways i definitely feel a little rusty. Recently i co-read Do You Dream Of Terra-Two? by Temi Oh with my boyfriend who is big in to space books, and it’s been on my TBR since YALC 2019, so i grabbed him a copy and sat down to read.
Once i read Laura Wood’s YA debut, i knew she’d be an auto buy author and someone that i absolutely adored. This was only solidified once i interviewed Laura a couple of years back, and lets just say our interview over-ran by 45 minutes.
*Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book. Sarah Crossan has been one of my auto-buy authors for the last four years or so now. I love her work, whether that’s verse written or not. I’ve had the chance to review a couple of her books before, but as Here Is The Beehive is her first adult novel, this felt like something a little more special.
We’re mostly a YA and contemporary blog, anyone that has been following us for more than a month will most likely be aware of that. However, myself and Sophie in our older years bonded massively over true crime. We both love learning about true crime, gritty stuff anything out of the ordinary. I’d never read a true crime book before, until now.
As soon as i saw this book announced way back in 2018, i knew i had to read it. Girl in a hot dog costume on the front cover AND LGBTQ+ rep? Count me in. I’ve become quite fond of the niche market of books based in theme parks/arcades or festivals, so this was right up my street.
I’ve been wanting to read a graphic novel for quite some time, one of length and a stand alone that i can really get in to. On a recent trip to Waterstones, i found This One Summer, which looked absolutely adorable and something that i’d really want to read pretty quickly. Luckily, my friend bought it and lent it to me, win win for me!
