* The book discussed in this post has been gifted by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
David Levithan…not a book goes by when i do not love your writing more and more. One of my favourite authors, i cannot help put pick up absolutely everything that David has published. More so, when he co-authors. I admittedly have never read a Jennifer Niven, and i think Take Me With You When You Go has pursuaded me to pick up her previous books.
Simon James Green (who happens to be one of my favourite UKYA novelists), is blessing us with yet another LGBTQ+ book. This time, inspired by Grease! You’re The One That I Want is hitting shelves on THURSDAY! That’s right, Thursday the 3rd of June, and i cannot wait for everyone to get their hands on it. But for today’s post, Simon himself has written us a post all about You’re The One That I Want and his love for Grease, the inspiration behind the book!
If you’re up to date with our posts, you’d know that my boyfriend bought me a subscription to Mr B’s Emporium for my birthday this year. That’s a book a month tailored to my tastes and hand picked by a member of staff. I’ve been so excited about this gift, and at the beginning of the month i got my first book in the post, Guard Your Heart by Sue Divin!
I’ve been very excited by Dolly Alderton’s debut novel, Ghosts since I heard about it’s release early in 2020. Honestly, it was the cover that drew me in and not much else. I love the art work and knew it was fiction about dating, and that pretty much sold me.
*Thank you to Penguin for sending me a copy of Lock The Doors for review.
Before this book landed on my door step, i had heard very little about it, and now i can only question why. Lock The Doors kept me hooked, has a great range of characters and discusses some really indepth topics. Here are some of the reasons i think you should pick up Lock The Doors.
Once i read Laura Wood’s YA debut, i knew she’d be an auto buy author and someone that i absolutely adored. This was only solidified once i interviewed Laura a couple of years back, and lets just say our interview over-ran by 45 minutes.
*Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book. Sarah Crossan has been one of my auto-buy authors for the last four years or so now. I love her work, whether that’s verse written or not. I’ve had the chance to review a couple of her books before, but as Here Is The Beehive is her first adult novel, this felt like something a little more special.
