Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

I have been positively giddy with anticipation waiting for Wayward Son; Carry On is one of my all-time favourites and I couldn’t wait for more Simon and Baz content. I couldn’t even wait for the hardcover copy I ordered to release on 3rd October (the special edition signed copy from Waterstones natch). I caved and bought the eBook so I could read it on 24th September (which falls in line […]

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!

There is often a certain rawness to it, especially if I read it after devouring their later works, […]

Next Girl to Die by Dea Poirier

I am hugely fascinated by True Crime yet when it comes to reading fiction, crime is not a genre I naturally gravitate towards. I’m not sure why because when I do read crime fiction, I usually enjoy it quite a bit. The Next Girl to Die is the debut novel of author Dea Poirier and is the first in a series focusing around a detective called Claire Calderwood. my review […]
