Everything, Everything – Adaptation Chat

adaptationYesterday, Sarah and I saw the Everything, Everything film together with our fri21198498_1499375420110045_880013391_o.jpgend Becca. We’ve been looking forward to seeing this film ever since it was announced so it was so fun to go together! The film was just released in the UK on Friday and I wanted to do a post for those who have either already seen it or want to (also, for myself because I love love love writing about adaptations!)

I remember reading this book last summer and completely falling in love with it. I loved how light and fun and adorable the story was along with more hard hitting plot lines. I think the mixture of the two is quite difficult to do but Nicola Yoon (who I absolutely adore) nails it.  Continue reading

Best Books Of The Year (So Far)

There’s no time like the middle of the year to think about what you’ve read so far and what you loved. I’ve always done monthly wrap-ups and yearly round-ups of what i’ve read, what my ratings were and my favourites. However, i figured i may as well throw a post in mid-year about what i absolutely adored from this year so far. It might give you a little inspiration as to what to read for the next six months!

BEDM: The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon Review

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

Title: The Sun Is Also A Starsun.jpg

Author: Nicola Yoon

Genre: YA, Contemporary, Romance

Pages: 345

Publisher: Corgi Childrens

Publication Date: 3rd November 2016

Summary: Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

April 2016 Wrap-Up

Last month I had a very good reading month, and I wanted to continue that in April. Uni is starting to calm down as I approach my last few weeks as a student (yes, that’s right, last few weeks as a student) and it means that I have quite a bit more time to read. It also helps that over the last month I’ve read books that I’ve actually been obsessed with. In fact my new favourite contemporary novel has been read in April!
