(This is a review from December 2019)
As you might know from my previous blog post, i’ve been really in to rom-com’s and contemporary novels at the moment. Light and easy reads that make your heart happy. I decided amongst that thought to pick up the newly released 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston. A festive read full of promising contemporary cute moments.

*The book discussed in this post was gifted by Macmillan Publishing*
No Big Deal has been on my radar for quite some time now, and i was absolutely thrilled to find out that Bethany Rutter would be attending YALC this year, giving me the perfect excuse to pick it up. I made sure that No Big Deal was high up on my priority for my YALC TBR so i could get around to it ASAP.

*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.

Floored is officially out for you to buy! Last year at YALC i remember picking up a sampler and being pained about how far away this release felt. Little did i know i had an exciting email to be apart of the Floored blog tour and get involved with the release of it. There have been four posts before mine, and for today’s i’ve written a monologue of my character, Velvet. She’s feisty and all round excellent – i hope you enjoy this little snippet in to her attending the launch party of Floored.

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.

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.

I’d heard a few things about this book just before the release, and being a big fan of David Levithan i found it hard not to pick up right away. It was the perfect mix of YA angst, LGBT power and summer contemporary fluffy.
