Social Skills by Sara Alva

Social Skills is the debut novel by Sara Alva. I had actually read her second book Silent prior to reading this one and it was so good that I knew I had to read this too. Social Skills is such an incredibly heart-warming book. I just wanted to wrap the main character up in a great big hug and tell him everything was going to be ok. This book is […]

The Devil’s Metal by Karina Halle

Another amazing novel from Karin Halle – every bit as addictive as her Experiment In Terror series. The Devil’s Metal follows 21 year-old music lover Dawn Emerson.

The characters broke my heart into teeny, tiny pieces but now it is time to try and put it all back together again to try and […]

It has twisted my insides up (in the way a good book should) and I have to say I find myself quite conflicted about the story and how I feel about it. Hushed is the story of two life-long friends Archer and Vivian and their complicated, ofttimes tragic, past. The two of them have what […]

Flat-Out Matt by Jessica Park

Well if I loved Matt in Flat-Out Love, I loved him even more in this companion novella. I enjoyed getting to see his perspective on certain chapters from Flat-Out Love, and I really loved the extra bits at the beginning and the end. It was great to see Matt hiking with Finn in the first chapter of the novella. It really sold their brotherly bond. I don’t want to give […]
