This Is Going To Hurt by Adam Kay (Blogmas)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

This Is Going To Hurt came to my attention a good few months ago now, and i had absolutely no idea what to think about it. I knew it was an honest account of working in the NHS from a Junior Doctors point of view, but i knew very little about Adam Kay and honestly didn’t know what to expect from the book. A lot of people were encouraging me to pick this up, even though it’s a little out of my comfort zone, and i’m so incredibly glad i did.

Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy (Blogmas)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

I’d been hearing really mixed things about Dumplin’ recently. The book has been out for some time, and honestly, it’s been on my shelf for a few years now, but nothing was making me want to pick it up. After the mixed reviews, i had no idea what to think. Luckily, with the release of the Netflix movie, i decided to pick it up, and i absolutely adored it.

Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Katherine Webber (Blogmas)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bThis was one of the first books I picked up at YALC and I do not regret it. It’s also the first Katherine Webber book I have read and I now can’t wait to pick up Wing Jones. The story of this is so beautiful and I really do rate it highly. Continue reading

City Of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab (Blogmas)

I feel ashamed that i’ve never finished a Victoria Schwab book until City Of Ghosts. I’ve always wanted to pick up one of her books, but the length of most of them intimidated me quite a lot, so when i found out she was releasing a middle-grade ghost book, i jumped at picking it up as soon as it landed in shops.

The Crimes Of Grindelwald – Movie Chat

There has been a lot of talk about this movie in the last few months, mostly bad, but some good. It hindered my thoughts of the movie going in to it, and honestly i had a bad taste in my mouth before i even stepped in to the cinema screen. But i wanted to try it out.

Ramona Blue By Julie Murphy

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

Our LGBTQ+ Book Club pick a few months ago was Ramona Blue. It’s been on my shelf for a few months now and i had been very excited about getting around to it, luckily so was everyone at book club! I’ve also had Dumplin’ on my shelves for a while, maybe this was the push i need to read everything else Julie has written.

What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bI think What If It’s Us has been the most anticipated book of the year for so many people. It feels so strange that we’ve been waiting for this for so long and all of a sudden it’s out and released and we’re all able to read it. I picked up a copy of it when myself and Sophie were in Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago so i could get a head start (and also i much prefer the U.S. cover to the U.K.).
