I finally got round to reading Queenie and I truly loved it. I got through it pretty quickly as I found it to be such a page turner. I’ve been meaning to read it for so long and it truly did not disappoint. If you want to hear some of my thoughts on the book, check it out below. There will be some spoilers in this review!
A few months ago, Sarah and I co-read All That She Can See by Carrie Hope Fletcher – we figured it would also be good to review it as well as use a recipe from it! We can tell you now that the Victoria sponge recipe is pretty damn great. The book needs a little more discussion however so dive in to see my thoughts on it.
I was recently gifted an early copy of Juno Dawson’s latest book, Wonderland, a fantastically extravagant take on Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I was so excited to read this book as I adored her book Clean and think Juno is a wonderful human being. Tomorrow is the UK publication day for Wonderland so you can easily get your hands on it!

It’s a story I think about fairly often and the three main characters have stayed with me, always feeling very real and unforgettable.

Thoughts below. Continue reading “Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen”
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 “Paper Avalanche by Lisa Williamson – Blog Tour”
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!
