Our LGBTQ+ Book Club is back and raring to go! We hadn’t stopped but we had a period where we intermittently did them rather than once a month. However, we have planned and organised and we are ready and very excited to be back in the swing of things. Last month we read Carol by Patricia Highsmith – keep reading to find out what we spoke about as well as what we are reading for our February meeting! Anyone is welcome to join us.Continue reading “Jan 2021 LGBTQ+ Book Club – Carol by Patricia Highsmith”
Girls On The Verge by Sharon Biggs Waller
Girls On The Verge was an impulse Foyles purchase for me about a year ago now. I remember being on my own in Foyles for the first time and i realised i didn’t have to worry about how many books i bought, because no-one would care (this is a stupid realisation but it made me so happy). When organising my books a while ago, i noticed i had it (definitely hadn’t forgot…) and thought i’d give it a go.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro has been one of my favourite books for many years now – the film is also a favourite of mine! It’s a story I think about fairly often and the three main characters have stayed with me, always feeling very real and unforgettable. I recently reread the book which I think is the third time I have read it now and wanted to give a review as I don’t think I have ever reviewed this novel before!

A Small Book Haul
It’s been a rough week, and it’s Tuesday. I’ve had a lot happen over the last few days, and my mood has admittedly not been the best, so i jumped on the chance of hanging out with some bookish friends yesterday to do some book shopping!
Toffee by Sarah Crossan (Guest Post)
Myself and my very good best pal Charlotte from Wonderfully Bookish found ourselves co-reading Toffee by Sarah Crossan recently. We love a blog hop so decided to review it for each other! That means you can head over to her blog to read my review of Toffee! We really want to make more of an effort with co-blogging, because it’s a lot of fun to take over someone else’s page for a little while, let us know if you like it or have any ideas. Make sure to keep reading for Charlotte’s review!
The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
Someone please tell me why i’ve been putting this book off for so long? I went through a stage a while ago i felt brave enough to buy it and have it on my shelf as something i might actually read in the future. One of my friends absolutely adores this book, and with a gentle push from her to choose it for this months book club pick, i finally picked it up.

Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich
I was absolutely thrilled by the announcement of the novelisation of Dear Evan Hansen. I stand by the fact that there are not enough novelisations of musicals out in the world, and this wonderful story definitely deserved one. I made it my goal to read it before the end of the 2018, because i absolutely adore the musical, and i did just that!
