Vain by Fisher Amelie

I was pleasantly surprised by Vain. I bought it on a whim (being doing a lot of that recently to great success so far!) and was not expecting to be so drawn in. Vain is the story of Sophie Price. Sophie is perfect in every way. Rich, beautiful and popular, all the guys want her and all the girls want to be her. She can have anyone she wants and […]

I had read through many of the reviews so had a fair idea that I would enjoy this one, but it more than lived up to my (already high) expectations. Graffiti Moon is told in dual narrative from the […]

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist was an interesting book. Having seen the film when it first came out, I fully intended to read the book it was based on. It has taken more than a few years to get there but I’m happy to say that the book didn’t disappoint. Told from the alternating viewpoint chapters of both Nick and Norah (with Rachel Cohn penning Norah’s chapters and David Levithan writing […]
