Everyones talking about it, and it’s really difficult not to talk about lock down at the moment. Firstly, i hope everyone is safe and well, and your families and friends are safe and well. It’s scary and new times, with a lot of struggles for many people. I won’t be posting about this regularly, due to the fact i know blogging is an escape for most people, but there are a few things i wanted to talk about.

Someone please tell me why i’ve been putting this book off for so long? I went through a stage a while ago i felt brave enough to buy it and have it on my shelf as something i might actually read in the future. One of my friends absolutely adores this book, and with a gentle push from her to choose it for this months book club pick, i finally picked it up.

I didn’t have high hopes for any Lauren James novel after i read The Next Together and spent a lot of time afterwards disliking it. But, when YALC rolled around this year and by far The Loneliest Girl In The Universe was the most talked about book, it was difficult not to pick up a copy eventually. It seemed to have an exciting premise and i was in the hope that i connect with the writing a little bit more as she’s gone on to write more novels.

I picked up a copy of The Witch’s Kiss quite a while ago, thinking that i wouldn’t get around to it any time soon. Admittedly it’s not really my ‘thing’. I’m not a fan of Witches and most of all, i had no idea what this story was actually about. When i saw that Katherine and Elizabeth were announced for YALC this year, i figured i may as well pick it up and see why it seemed so popular last year. I ended up speeding through it.

Ever since last summer i have developed an unhealthy obsession with The 100 series by Kass Morgan. I read the first installment ahead of YALC ’16 and it quickly became one of my favourite series (don’t let the covers put you off like i did). I could barely contain my excitement when i found out that she would be releasing a fourth novel in December of last year, fueling my love for these books.

I had heard a lot about The Martian before I decided to buy a copy and read it for myself. After hearing about the film adaptation, I was eager to start as the film had many of my favourite actors in it and looked like it would be amazing (which it is).
