Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I was mulling over my review for Wayward Son when it occurred to me that I had never actually reviewed Carry On (for shame!) and oh, how appropriate that I was just now listening to a playlist on Spotify and Bohemian Rhapsody came on (carry on, carry on…) most fortuitous! It’s definitely a sign. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell is a book that completely grabbed me by the lapels and […]

The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis

I finished this book a couple of days ago but I needed some time to mull it over, to put my thoughts into order, and give The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis the kind of review it merits. So what did I think of this book? I was conflicted but overall I loved it. Now, you might be asking yourself why I loved it if it also brought […]

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. It definitely surprised me (in the best possible way). 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 […]
