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, […]

Toil & Trouble by Hannah Johnson

Toil & Trouble is a novella-length story featuring the same wacky group of characters from one of my all-time favourite reads Know Not Why (my review of which went up yesterday – only 6 years too late haha!)

You know when you get a book that just speaks to you? You’re not even sure why but it just does? This is that book for me. Know Not Why is a charming, funny, surprisingly deep and moving story.

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. Dawn has aspirations of becoming a serious music journalist and her big break comes in the form of a job she never expected in her wildest dreams: the chance to go on the road with one of her favourite bands, Hybrid, courtesy of Creem magazine. Dawn jumps […]
