We haven’t done a ton of blog tours recently but this one jumped out because I’ve been wanting to read Paper Avalanche for quite a while. Sarah loves it and told me I would definitely like it and she was very right! This is the first book of Lisa Williamson’s I’ve read (not including her sections in Floored) and the story was fantastic. I was lucky enough to be gifted this book – read on for details and all of my thoughts! Continue reading “Paper Avalanche by Lisa Williamson – Blog Tour”
Last weekend was the long awaited NYALitFest in Preston! Last year was such a wonderful event, and to top off all the incredible authors and all the fun that was had, the event is completely free! I had even more fun if possible than last year, with more of my friends and a much bigger event.

I’ve absolutely adored Lisa Williamson for quite some time now. I first read The Art Of Being Normal a few years back, and after having the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times, it’s hard not to love her personality. You can see the passion for these books that she has, and her lovely personality shines through to the stories.

*Thank you to Hatchette Kids for sending me a copy of Floored and letting me be apart of the blog tour promo team for this book*
Floored has been one of my most anticipated books of this year since i found out about it. The idea behind the book is challenging to say the least, with Sara Barnard, Melinda Salisbury, Non Pratt, Holly Bourne, Eleanor Wood, Lisa Williamson and Tanya Byrne all involved in the writing of Floored. It sounded like it was going to be a wild ride and i had high hopes on it being excellent as i have already adored the work of these authors for a long time.

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!) Lisa champions diversity and LGBTQ+ in all her work, and us being a very LGBTQ+ focused blog and having the LGBTQ+ Book Club, i figured who better to ask some questions about writing than Lisa.

Ever since the release of this book it’s been on my radar as one to watch. Since it’s release in early 2015, it feels like more and more transgender YA novels have been released, in some ways it paved the way for more LGBTQ+ novels in the YA genre. So that has to mean that its good, right? The cover intrigued me from the start and when the paperback was released i finally picked it up. I also had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Williamson at YALC this year, she was an absolute The Art Of Being Normal was the first novel that i pulled out from my TBR jar this year. So i set to reading it.

I feel like all i say on these posts anymore is ‘I’ve not had a very good reading month’ but it’s sadly very true. Along with being ill (yes again) and having a social life (this doesn’t happen often), i’ve had little time to get stuck in to a book with work mixed in too. So i’m a little disappointed with what i’ve achieved this October. Hopefully on the run up to Christmas i’ll be more inclined to get stuck in to all of those books i really wanted to read this year but haven’t gotten around to. Ah well! Here’s what i read this month.
