Heartstopper (Volume One) by Alice Oseman

I'm so pleased to have a book/print version of Alice Oseman's adorable web comic. I've been following Charlie and Nick's story online for a while now but it is really special to have my own copy to keep. I loved re-reading all the cuteness in one go - an hour well spent! I don't usually... Continue Reading →


Save The Date by Morgan Matson

This book was fun and amusing but also quite stressful to read in an everything-that-could-go-wrong-goes-wrong way! I liked the complicated family dynamics and all the wedding drama but there were a lot of characters to remember (there's an actual "wedding party" character list on the first page) and so much back story to take in....

Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt

This was everything I love in a book and more! It was so wonderful, I honestly didn't want it to end and already can't wait to re-read it.

Friendship Fails of Emma Nash by Chloe Seager

Returning to these characters - and particularly Emma's narration -... Continue Reading →

How To Stop Time by Matt Haig

I was intrigued by the concept of this book and, after a recommendation from a friend, decided to give it a try. This was my first book by Matt Haig, having not read either his fiction or non-fiction books before. It's definitely one of those books where maybe the concept is more exciting than its...

How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly Bourne

I love Holly Bourne's YA books and was very excited to read her first adult novel as the protagonist, Tori, was much closer to my age than the books I usually read. Tori is intelligent and funny and from the outside has got everything (life, career, boyfriend) under control. However, her internal struggles were very relatable as... Continue Reading →

I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman

After reading Radio Silence, I was keen to try another of Alice Oseman's books and this one did not disappoint. Told from two contrasting points-of-view, this book is an interesting exploration of fame, fandom and friendship. Highly recommended. My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
