February Book Roundup

Once again, late to the party (a book reading party?! That would be the best!), here are my February reads! Thanks to long bubble baths and equally long, but less fun train rides, I’ve managed to plow through a decent amount this month! A few of these have been sent to me from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. …

January Book Roundup

It’s halfway (ish) through February and I decide that I want to start doing monthly round ups of the books I’ve been reading. This is the kind of idea that should have come to me in December so I could start it off nice and fresh and on time, but sadly that is not the way my brain works. So …

The Book of Everyone

Just before Christmas, the lovely folks at The Book of Everyone, kindly gave me the chance to make my very own Book of Everyone! As someone who never found her name on anything in a gift shop, and therefore is a little obsessed with anything personalised, this is such a wonderful idea! Basically, The Book of Everyone, gives you the …

Best Books of 2015

Look, it’s technically still January (is it just me or has this month lasted forever?!) so I feel like doing a ‘books I read in 2015’ roundup post is kinda okay, right?

#BEDN: What you Left Behind – Jessica Verdi

An advanced copy of this book was kindly sent to me for review by the publishers.
This book follows super popular, football star (of course) Ryden as he navigates life with a small baby after the death of his girlfriend to cancer. So, it’s pretty heavy, though ultimately enjoyable to read.

What We Left Behind – Robin Talley: A Review

It’s important to preface this review by saying that I, personally, do not have any experience of being transgender, and therefore cannot comment fully on whether this book is an accurate representation or not. I do, however, have a few trans* friends, from whom I have learnt as much as possible, and so I can only really base my critique of that part of the story, on the knowledge I have picked up through research and conversations, and not through lived experience, which of course, would be far more valid.

The Scorch Trials: Book VS Film

Today’s post was written by a dear friend of mine, Rachel Hatton. Rachel has amazing taste in books and films, as well as being a hugely talented writer, and so she’s easily the best person to write this comparison between the Maze Runner series of books and the recent film, The Scorch Trials

Paper Towns Movie Review

Paper Towns is my third favourite John Green Book. Looking for Alaska is my first, The-Book-That-We-Are-Not-Mentioning is the second. That’s not to say I don’t love it, I actually really enjoyed it, I just preferred the other two. That said, I was very concerned that the film wouldn’t do it justice…
