Simon James Green (who happens to be one of my favourite UKYA novelists), is blessing us with yet another LGBTQ+ book. This time, inspired by Grease! You’re The One That I Want is hitting shelves on THURSDAY! That’s right, Thursday the 3rd of June, and i cannot wait for everyone to get their hands on it. But for today’s post, Simon himself has written us a post all about You’re The One That I Want and his love for Grease, the inspiration behind the book!Continue reading “Grease Is The Word by Simon James Green”
Once i read Laura Wood’s YA debut, i knew she’d be an auto buy author and someone that i absolutely adored. This was only solidified once i interviewed Laura a couple of years back, and lets just say our interview over-ran by 45 minutes.Continue reading “A Snowfall Of Silver by Laura Wood”
I adore Simon’s books and i’ve never been quiet about that online, or in person, basically i talk about Simon and his books an awful lot! When i found out that he was releasing a new YA novel that wasn’t in the Noah world, i was incredibly excited and had high hopes to see what his new characters would be like away from Noah, Harry and the old gang.
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.
I was lucky enough recently to sit down with Laura Wood, author of A Sky Painted Gold and have a chat about her book. I recently read A Sky Painted Gold and absolutely adored it, it was so lovely, gentle and thought provoking. So once i had the opportunity to interview Laura herself, i knew i had to jump at the chance to ask her about her book! Here is the interview…
*Thanks to Scholastic for sending me a review copy of A Sky Painted Gold*
I’d heard so many lovely things about this book. Constant good reviews and because of this, i wondered why there wasn’t a huge buzz around it like i expected. I was slightly hesitant to pick this up, as it doesn’t seem like something i would instantly love. I was definitely wrong and this deserves to be talked about so much more than it has been.
I’d heard about Noah Can’t Even before it’s release and it somewhat slipped under my radar a little. What kept me wanting to read this book was the slight niggling feeling i had that Simon was going to be announced as a YALC author this year. Low and behold he was, so i added it to my YALC TBR list immediately.
