Book Club Night 6 – Noah Can’t Even

BOOHey! So I know it’s super late and we usually post these the week after book club but here is our latest update! For our July-August book we chose to read Noah Can’t Even by Simon James Green. I finally had the pleasure of meeting him at YALC and he is such a lovely man! Sarah has met him before and has said only good things so I was really looking forward to meeting him. Anyway! Onto our book club chats! Continue reading

An Interview with Lisa Williamson

I’ve been a fan of Lisa for quite some time now. The author of the stunning The Art Of Being Normal and All About Mia, Lisa has now joined the seven authors involved in Floored (I’m apart of the blog tour for the promotion of this book, i can guarantee it will be incredible!)

Book Club Night 4 – Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

Also, many of the people who attend hadn’t read it and since it is one of my all time favourite books, I wanted to spread the brilliance of it. Sarah couldn’t make this month’s meet up as she was away with her partner so I led this one solo which I was kind of nervous about and missed Sarah a lot but it went really well!  Continue reading

Book Club Night 3 – Call Me By Your Name

For our second Book Club read, we chose Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman – a slightly controversial book that has hit the media hard in the last year due to the movie release. It’s a book that has been popular and talked about, and something that me and Sophie have both been wanting to read for quite some time. Call Me By Your Name is not the love story that I think either of us expected.
