Girl Hearts Girl – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

As part of The Little Contemporary Corner’s LGBTQ+ book club, I have read this book written by Lucy Sutcliffe, who is a YouTuber, about her self-acceptance of being a lesbian as well as finding love for the first time.

I have read LGBTQ+ themed books before, but I haven’t read an autobiography about homosexuality before. I was really excited to read this! Continue reading “Girl Hearts Girl – Book Review”

Call It Dog – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

I bought this book about a year ago because it was set in a country that I haven’t read a lot about: South Africa. Since I’m always after something different, I thought this book was right up my street!

So, I have finally read it and this is what I think of it!

Side note: I will be talking about the ending a bit, so I’ll put a spoiler warning here.

Daughter – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

I may have slightly spoiled my opinion about this book in my earlier posts, saying that it wasn’t a good start. The only thing that was keeping me reading this book was the mystery – what did happen to Naomi, the missing fifteen-year-old girl?

So, I have recently finished the book.

Warning: major spoiler alert! I normally wouldn’t mention huge spoilers in my reviews, but it is something I want to discuss in detail because it affected my whole reading experience. Continue reading “Daughter – Book Review”

Everything, Everything – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

This book was recommended to me at the beginning of this year and I have finally got my hands on it. I had asked for romance novels recommendations since it’s a genre I never really read much. I simply thought they would be predictable and, since I was more into unpredictable books, I didn’t think it was a genre for me.

But did Everything, Everything change my mind on romances? Continue reading “Everything, Everything – Book Review”

The Hate U Give – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

I first heard of this book when my friend Sarah from The Little Contemporary Corner told me the author, Angie Thomas, will be doing a book signing in Manchester, talking her novel, The Hate U Give. We both went and it was an emotional, funny and intelligent event! I will be uploading a guest post discussing the event in more detail on The Little Contemporary Corner soon.

I bought the book there and, even before reading it, I knew it would be one of the most important books I will ever read. Continue reading “The Hate U Give – Book Review”

The Gap of Time – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

Before I begin, I want to mention an important fact about my reading preferences. Not just because I writing a post so I can write whatever goes through my mind (heck, my posts would never make sense to anyone only to me – in fact, the day when even I don’t understand what I’m going on about would be a sad day indeed…anyway), but because it’s important to this review. You see, when I read a story for the first time, I prefer it when I have absolutely no idea of what’s going to happen. It keeps me on my toes and keeps me guessing. So when I came across this book and was told it’s a cover version of The Winter’s Tale, a Shakespeare play I haven’t read about, I was interested. I even wanted to look up The Winter’s Tale afterwards to compare the two.

To my surprise, when I opened the book, it gave a summary of The Winter’s Tale anyway.

I still read it, but had the idea that the plot wouldn’t deviate from the original much.

So, what it worth the read? Continue reading “The Gap of Time – Book Review”
