Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I have to admit, I jumped about like an over-excited puppy when I got approved for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I had been wanting to read it since it was first announced and had been keeping an eye on Netgalley for it coming up for review. Was it worth the wait? Definitely. In fact, I would say it is the best book I have read […]

Review: Fan Art by Sarah Tregay

Aww, this book was so sweet! Honestly it was a truly adorable little story. Heart-warming and fluffy – it was just what I was in the mood to read.

Still, I thought it was a strong debut and I am definitely interested in reading the next entry in what looks […]

Tristant and Elijah by Jennifer Lavoie

I really enjoyed Jennifer Lavoie’s debut novel Andy Squared so when I saw this book on Netgalley I just knew I had to request it. I was over the moon when I was approved – thank you Bold Stroke Books! Tristant and Elijah was a really sweet story about an out high-school boy called Tristant who, along with his long-time crush Elijah, uncovers a somewhat illicit-sounding letter in amongst his great-uncle’s belongings.
