More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

Honestly, the one thing that’s been putting me off reading this book for so long was the ridiculous price of the American import. Once i found out that More Happy Than Not would be getting a U.K release, i was thrilled i’d be able to read this book much cheaper and start with Adam’s debut novel.

Clean by Juno Dawson

*I was sent a copy of Clean by Juno Dawson in exchange for an honest review*
Juno is one of my favourite authors. I adore her writing and her characters and the daring aspects to her work. She pushes the boundaries of YA and that’s so refreshing to read, and definitely something i think younger YA readers are owed.

But i’ve never really discussed what my rating system is and what a book entails to have a one star or five star review. Here’s the explanation for you!

Summery Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they’re off to university and Wren’s decided she doesn’t want to be one half of a pair any more – she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It’s not so easy for Cath. She’s horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she’s experienced in real life.

Without Wren Cath is completely on her own and totally outside her comfort zone. She’s got a surly room-mate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

Now Cath has to decide whether she’s ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she’s realizing that there’s more to learn about love than she ever thought possible . . .
