*The book discussed in this post was gifted by Firefly Publishing*

Summer Of No Regrets had been on my radar for a little bit of time prior to it’s release. During the summer, all i want to read is fun stories about friendship and enjoying life, and this seemed exactly what i wanted. Firefly were kind enough to send me a copy of Kate Mallinder’s new book for review, and i couldn’t be more grateful they brought this friendship group in to my life!

Dumplin’ Film Chat (BEDM)

Now, I haven’t actually read Dumplin’ but I watched the film on Netflix the other day and I absolutely loved it. A lot of people have recommended me both the book and the film adaptation but I just never fully fancied it. I wasn’t sure if I’d be a fan. However, I’m now right on the hype (better late than never). Continue reading

Book Tropes I Love (BEDM)

chat

As i’ve dove very deep in to the YA community, i’ve picked up on quite a few tropes that i absolutely love and hate in books. Tropes are something that cannot be avoided, they’re everywhere and some of the time, tropes are actually really well written, if they’re written in good and interesting ways!

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

*I received a free proof copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from David Fickling Books

I’ve absolutely adored Lisa Williamson for quite some time now. I first read The Art Of Being Normal a few years back, and after having the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times, it’s hard not to love her personality. You can see the passion for these books that she has, and her lovely personality shines through to the stories.

Leah On the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli (Blogmas)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

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
