Two Boys Kissing – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

I’m so glad to be ready more diverse books this year, especially when it comes to LGBTQ+ themes and characters. So when I decided to this book a go, I already had an idea of what could happen. I was right, but there were definitely some elements that were just so beautiful! Continue reading “Two Boys Kissing – Book Review”

Winters’ Snow – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

As it’s nearly Halloween…and I haven’t got any scary stories to read, I decided to read Carrie Hope Fletcher’s novella, based on her novel On The Other Side, instead. It is only a tiny novella and I read it within an hour, yet it certainly didn’t feel as long as I was reading it.

As Winters’ Snow is a part of On The Other Side, I will have to discuss some spoilers (as some are told in the novella’s blurb), so for anyone who hasn’t read On The Other Side and wish to, you have been warned. Continue reading “Winters’ Snow – Book Review”

Replica – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

Have you ever read a flip book before, where there’s two stories in one book – you read one side to read one story then you flip and turn the book around to read the other one? A book that looks like you’re reading the book upside down and confusing everyone that sees you reading? Well, Replica is such a book. Continue reading “Replica – Book Review”

My Friday Thoughts – Why I Regret Not Reading Romance Sooner

Hello, people of the internet!

I’ve been thinking recently about how my reading preferences have changed these last nine months. I have always been someone who read all sorts of genres, but romance wasn’t one of them. It was like this until last year when the first book blog I ever followed, The Little Contemporary Corner (Sarah, who is the co-founder of this blog, is my friend from University), had a Readalong event with My True Love Gave To Me last December and I joined in because I wanted to finally give the romance genre a go.

Turns out I love the romance genre, but it has left me wondering why I never actually gave romance a go years before. Continue reading “My Friday Thoughts – Why I Regret Not Reading Romance Sooner”

Summer Days and Summer Nights – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

Back last December, I read My True Love Gave To Me. It is a collection of short stories, written by various authors (who primarily write Young Adult fiction) about romance during the winter holidays; the whole collection is edited by Stephanie Perkins. You can read my review of it here. Once I found out another collection of short stories, also edited by Stephanie Perkins, which is about romance during the summer holidays, I knew I had to get my hands on it.

Just like my My True Love Gave To Me review, I’ve ranked my Top 12 favourites stories from the book. Even though I did like them all, there were some I liked more than others. Feel free to make your own list if you wish (and if you read the book!)

Also, I’ll be discussing each story in some detail, but nothing that will spoil them for you! Continue reading “Summer Days and Summer Nights – Book Review”

Books I Aim To Read This Month (July 2017)

Hello, people of the internet!

My personal reading challenges have been very successful, so why not continue? I won’t be reading as many books this month because I want to write more discussion posts – they are a lot of fun to write!

Anyway, enough about me and my aim to discuss (or rant) more about books, here are the two books I aim to read this month! Continue reading “Books I Aim To Read This Month (July 2017)”

On The Other Side – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

So I have been keeping to my New Year’s resolution of reading more romances as I have finished reading this book. What I haven’t been keeping to, however, is just to read a little everyday. Why?

To put it simply, I just couldn’t put it down!

(Before I begin my review, I will put a spoiler alert right…here! You have been warned.) Continue reading “On The Other Side – Book Review”
