Confession Time: I Don’t Like Smut

Confession Time: I Don’t Like Smut I bet I got your attention with this headline, huh? It might be closer to the truth to say I get embarrassed reading sex scenes in books. Not because I’m a prude or anything (I’m really not, or I don’t think so anyway…) I’m also in no way shaming people for enjoying smutty scenes in books and it’s true that I do enjoy a […]

Fagin’s Boy by Christina E. Pilz

I’ve had this book sitting on my Kindle for years now (I actually bought it in 2017 – yikes!) and meant to buy the rest of the series but for some reason or another didn’t get round to it until about a week ago.

The reason for this is because I really struggle with third person present tense (yet oddly enough, don’t have trouble with first person present tense – guess I’m just weird that way!) However, I persevered and I’m so glad I did […]

Know Not Why by Hannah Johnson

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. It’s a book about sexual awakening but it is also a book about friendship. But I am getting ahead of myself here. First, a bit of background. I actually first read […]
