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

Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

I’d been hearing really mixed things about Dumplin’ recently. The book has been out for some time, and honestly, it’s been on my shelf for a few years now, but nothing was making me want to pick it up. After the mixed reviews, i had no idea what to think. Luckily, with the release of the Netflix movie, i decided to pick it up, and i absolutely adored it.

Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Katherine Webber (Blogmas)

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bThis was one of the first books I picked up at YALC and I do not regret it. It’s also the first Katherine Webber book I have read and I now can’t wait to pick up Wing Jones. The story of this is so beautiful and I really do rate it highly. Continue reading

We have a few other posts like this one that you can find HERE if you want to check them out.

Starfish was one of my favourite reads of this year, i know the year isn’t done but i can’t imagine much will beat it for me. It was stunningly written and had wonderful characters. So admittedly i had extremely high hopes for Summer Bird Blue when i picked it up, and i’m glad it didn’t disappoint. Continue reading

Noah Could Never by Simon James Green

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_b

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.

My Heart Goes Bang – Keris Stainton

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.
