Landline by Rainbow Rowell

There’s just something about Rainbow Rowell’s writing that just clicks with me. Something undefinable. I’ve loved every book that she has released and Landline is no different. This is a strange one because it is definitely an adult contemporary novel but it has a little bit of science fiction thrown into the mix. Although the characters themselves do not travel through time, through some unknown phenomena the main character Georgie […]

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

If I’m being absolutely, completely, brutally honest, I actually struggled to get into this book at the beginning (which really sucked since I was so looking forward to it). The reason for this is because I really struggle with third person present tense (yet oddly enough, don’t have trouble with first person present tense – guess I’m just weird that way!) However, I persevered and I’m so glad I did […]

How Not to Ask a Boy to Prom by S.J. Goslee

I wasn’t expecting great things from How (Not) to Ask a Boy to Prom by S.J. Goslee but I was pleasantly surprised by how charming and funny I found it.

This book is about a teen called Nolan who has been (relatively) recently adopted into a family with a slightly over-bearing (but well-meaning) older sister called Daphne. Nolan is gay but […]

Torn by Natalia Jaster

I am very lucky to be on Natalia Jaster’s ARC team but I honestly wasn’t expecting to get the chance to read Torn ahead of its release date (June 20th) because for some silly reason, I had it in my head that I was only on the team for her Foolish Kingdoms series! So when this little beauty found its way into my inbox last month I may have screeched […]

Touch by Natalia Jaster

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Natalia Jaster’s writing? It’s actually hard to believe Touch was her debut novel. It contains her usual lyrical prose but is also very polished and well put together. I can usually spot an author’s debut novel (even if I am unaware it was such). There is often a certain rawness to it, especially if I read it after devouring their later works, […]
