I’m a huge fan of Juno’s work, and she’s an author that i think i will constantly support for a very very long time to come. Not only is she an incredible woman, her books are ridiculously well written and funny. So all that being said, i had high hopes for Meat Market.

I recently made a post about the tropes that i actually really enjoy in books, surprisingly, there are some that i really do enjoy. Tropes are incredibly cliched, and in some ways, every single book has some kind of trope in it. Because i’ve already talked about ones that i actually like (and because this list is probably longer), i wanted to talk about the ones that i hate.

*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.

However, I’m now right on the hype (better late than never). Continue reading “Dumplin’ Film Chat (BEDM)”

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!

I 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.

You may have noticed that we had a read-along running across our social medias between the 11th and the 22nd of March. This was all in aid of celebrating the wonderful release of Proud, a new LGBTQ+ anthology from Stripes, which was curated by Juno Dawson and includes a whole host of great YA authors and some wonderful illustrators.
