We haven’t done a ton of blog tours recently but this one jumped out because I’ve been wanting to read Paper Avalanche for quite a while. Sarah loves it and told me I would definitely like it and she was very right! This is the first book of Lisa Williamson’s I’ve read (not including her sections in Floored) and the story was fantastic. I was lucky enough to be gifted this book – read on for details and all of my thoughts! Continue reading

October 2019 Wrap-Up

My October wrap-up is a whole lot later than it usually is. I’ve had some time off writing for the blog because honestly everything just got a little too much for me. My mental health hasn’t been the best and the pressure of a new job along with blog work has just been too much to balance. That all being said, i had quite a good reading month in October!

Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak – Blogtober

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bIt took me months but I finally finished Markus Zusak’s latest novel, Bridge of Clay a while back now. I loved The Book Thief when I read this a few years back so when I heard he was bringing this out, plus doing an event in Manchester I was really excited. We wrote a post on the event here. It was a brilliant time and I’m happy to say I loved this new book. Continue reading

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

After the Fire by Will Hill (BEDM)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bI 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

Leah On the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli (Blogmas)

After reading Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, I was both content and gutted because I loved it but also it was over! Me and Sarah both decided to take Leah On The Offbeat to Amsterdam on our trip away and it was the best decision! It’s a fun read and it was so lovely to be back into a familiar world full of characters I adore. Continue reading
