Noah Can’t Even was one of my few five star books of 2017, and i absolutely adored it. It has a laugh out loud moment on every page and Simon writes a tragic teenager perfectly. I was hoping i’d find Noah Could Never to be exactly the same. Thank God i wasn’t disappointed.

I’ve heard endless good things about Keris’ books in the last few years, however despite actually attending an writing workshop with her once, i’ve only just gotten around to reading one of her books. My Heart Goes Bang was not on my radar at all, that was until all my friends started to give it five stars.

I’d been looking forward to starting Starfish for a while and I am so, so glad I’ve read it now! It is absolutely amazing and brought me out of a bit of a reading slump. I think I needed something with heavier themes as I’ve been reading a lot of light stories lately and I wanted something with a bit more to it. This is Akemi Dawn Bowman’s first novel and honestly, what a debut to have. I can’t wait to read her future books.  Continue reading

Reading Before YALC

chatI know Sarah has posted/tweeted a fair bit about YALC and the books she is reading in preparation but I haven’t really gotten as involved. I’ve been having a break from social media lately and I’ve barely been using it (my replies are shockingly late and I’m sorry!) so I haven’t really posted my YALC TBR or anything much to do with it. I have however been reading a lot to try and get the ones I’m most excited about read. Continue reading

*A big thanks to a pal Kimi for letting me read her advanced copy of this book!*

For any of you who are new around here, i absolutely adore the entire Fletcher family. Every single one of them. Having read every book that Tom and Giovanna have released separately now, i thought that Eve Of Man would be my absolute dream book. I wish i hadn’t have found it so ‘meh’.

Goodbye, Perfect by Sara Barnard

I read Sara Barnard’s second novel, A Quiet Kind Of Thunder in 2017, and it ended up being one of my favourite books of the year. I adored that there was something different to that teen romance story, and the fact that her writing was so easy to read and memorable. I fell in love with her writing style.
