Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Wuthering Heights is the first full-length classic I've read in quite a few years. I'm really glad I persevered and read it through to the end. It wasn't at all what I was expecting, which was actually nice; sometimes you go into classics already knowing how they'll end because they're such well-known stories. It also... Continue Reading →


Songs About Us by Chris Russell

An excellent sequel to Songs About A Girl. Great character development, more fun and games with Fire and Lights, but this time with higher stakes and bigger fall outs. The mystery about Charlie's Mum and how Gabriel fits in gets more and more interesting... and that cliffhanger ending! I can't wait to read the series... Continue Reading →

Songs About A Girl by Chris Russell

There's something about this type of story that is so compelling and absorbing. I can't really put my finger on it, but... Continue Reading →

Six For Sunday: Rainbow Books

I haven't been brave enough to try this up until now, even though I always love rainbow bookshelves on... Continue Reading →

Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga

This book is a cute contemporary YA about a teenager meeting her rock-star father and his family for the first time. Whilst I enjoyed the developing father-daughter relationship between Julian and Taliah - particularly their shared love of music - it was actually the flashbacks to when Julian first met Taliah's Mum, Lena. I found... Continue Reading →

Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed

This book is sweet and heart-warming, whilst also tackling a difficult subject with honesty and care. The story follows Maya, who feels torn between meeting family expectations and following her dream of going to film school. I loved how Maya's film-making was described - I found I could really picture the scenes she was trying... Continue Reading →

Weddings in YA

In honour of the Royal Wedding today, I thought I'd do a special little blog post. I'm a bit of a cynic most of the time, but I do think there is just something lovely about a good wedding! Watching the celebrations earlier, it got me thinking about the weddings I've been to in real... Continue Reading →
