I was lucky enough this year to be involved with the release of Kate Mallinder’s Summer Of No Regrets, and was very kindly gifted a copy of the book from Firefly Publishing.  I absolutely adored her debut novel (my full review is HERE), so wanted to get the chance to speak to Kate about her book and how she’s found the writing process!

Keep reading for my interview with Kate about everything summer, best friends and powering through writing!

I adore Simon’s books and i’ve never been quiet about that online, or in person, basically i talk about Simon and his books an awful lot! When i found out that he was releasing a new YA novel that wasn’t in the Noah world, i was incredibly excited and had high hopes to see what his new characters would be like away from Noah, Harry and the old gang.

*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.

As we have an LGBTQ+ Book Club, we’re always looking for more LGBTQ+ reads, especially from own voices authors. A couple of years back (long ago when we first started the book club) we read If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo, and i absolutely loved it. I had to get my hands on Birthday at some point to see how it compared, and to read something else from this wonderful own voices author.

*The book discussed in this post was gifted by Firefly Publishing*

Summer Of No Regrets had been on my radar for a little bit of time prior to it’s release. During the summer, all i want to read is fun stories about friendship and enjoying life, and this seemed exactly what i wanted. Firefly were kind enough to send me a copy of Kate Mallinder’s new book for review, and i couldn’t be more grateful they brought this friendship group in to my life!
