*The book discussed in this post was gifted by Hot Key Books*
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.
Sometimes, you just really need a day with your best friends. Without a doubt, most of my days with friends are filled with bookish activities, but sometimes, it’s really nice to go out with your bookish friends and do something unbookish! That’s why yesterday me, Sophie and the wonderful Lois from LoisReadsBooks took a little day out.
HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY SARAH!
Today my best friend and founder of this blog turns 21 and I wanted to celebrate by writing a post for her. So I have decided to write a list of my favourite fictional friendships and when I was thinking about it, it turns out this list features most of my favourite books! Clearly, well written friendships are an important factor for me in a book.
Title: My Heart and Other Black Holes
Author: Jasmine Warga
Genre: YA, Contemporary, Friendship,
Publisher: Hodder Paperbacks
Publication Date: 12th February 2015
Summery : Aysel and Roman are practically strangers, but they’ve been drawn into an unthinkable partnership. In a month’s time, they plan to commit suicide – together.
Aysel knows why she wants to die: being the daughter of a murderer doesn’t equal normal, well-adjusted teenager. But she can’t figure out why handsome, popular Roman wants to end it all….and why he’s even more determined than she is.
With the deadline getting closer, something starts to grow between Aysel and Roman – a feeling she never thought she would experience. It seems there might be something to live for, after all – but is Aysel in so deep she can’t turn back?
