I picked this up before NYALitFest as Will Hill was going to be there and I thought this book sounded really interesting and quite different. I’m morbidly fascinated by cults (I think most people who I’ve spoken to are) and this is all about a young girl who was in a cult dealing with life straight after a huge disaster. Continue reading
A List of Cages has been on my TBR for a little bit of time now, and finally, once i saw it in a book shop i decided to pick it up. I knew it would be a fast read and something i could get through quickly, so i was saving it for a time when i wanted something to run through fast. I wasn’t expecting to soak up every word and savour this book so much.
I’ve been wanting to read a graphic novel for quite some time, one of length and a stand alone that i can really get in to. On a recent trip to Waterstones, i found This One Summer, which looked absolutely adorable and something that i’d really want to read pretty quickly. Luckily, my friend bought it and lent it to me, win win for me!
I’m not normally a huge reader of fantasy but so far this year I’ve dug into Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi and now Girls of Paper and Fire by Nastasha Ngan – both of which I have loved! GOPAF was our Book Club pick for April and I truly adored it. I was unsure how I’d feel but I was so into it and I loved talking about it at Book Club (which I’ll upload a post about on Monday). I read most of this whilst sat in the wonderful weather over the Easter weekend – there’s no better way of spending a hot, sunny day than going for walks in beautiful places and sitting reading a good book outdoors! On with the review…
I was lucky enough to attend the Queenie event in Manchester a little while ago, which i absolutely adored, so i knew i wanted to get to Queenie as soon as possible to really maximise my time at the event. I started it just before and read enough to get some really good conversations going at the event. You can read about it HERE.
*The book discussed in this post has been gifted by Harper Teen*
Months ago when this book was announced, admittedly i only checked it out because of the stunning cover it has. It’s absolutely beautiful and once i found out what it was about, it seemed right up my street. I was lucky enough that Harper Teen gifted me some copies for myself and to share out to the bloggers that come to our LGBTQ+ book club!
I’ve actually had You on my shelf for a good few years now. I picked it up right when i started Uni (i think) as i found it cheap and liked the sound of it. As the years passed, i’d heard more and more mixed reviews that honestly put me off reading it. Then the announcement of the Netflix series came around, and well, i picked it up.
