I’ve primarily stuck to talking about books on this site. I’ve tried not to stray too far from books, with the occasional personal update. Every-so-often, something comes along and really hits you hard, and recently i went to see Joker, the latest DC movie, and i wanted to talk about it a little bit.

I Am Not A Number by Lisa Heathfield – Blogtober

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

Lisa Heathfield has been one of my auto-buy authors since i picked up Flight of a Starling a couple of years ago. Her writing is absolutely stunning and always covers some more intense topics which i really appreciate. I couldn’t have been happier to see her return to YALC this year with her latest release, I Am Not A Number, and i definitely couldn’t wait to pick it up.

The Burning by Laura Bates – Blogtober

I picked up a copy of The Burning by Laura Bates a couple of months ago when it was first released. I really love the work that Laura does for feminism and i’ve flicked through her non-fiction books and really enjoyed them. I was very interested to see what her previous work would translate to in YA fiction.

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!

Make sure to keep reading for Charlotte’s review!

The Million Pieces of Neena Gill by Emma Smith Barton

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bI picked the ARC of this book up at NYA Lit Fest in Preston. That was in March and I’ve been wanting to read it for a while now. I started reading it over a month ago I think but was super busy with my job at the time and had no spare time to read. I honestly really thought this book was great and I love that it covers such a taboo area in mental illness –  psychosis. Continue reading
