This has turned in to a year where my reading feels like it's going slowly, but when I look back at the months I'm actually keeping up pace pretty well! I am definitely behind on reviews but I'm struggling to find the time to write them some weeks. Do you ever have months where you … Continue reading Where’d You go Bernadette – Maria Semple | Review
I am slowly working my way through my backlog of Book Forest Crate books, and it's a little bittersweet as Bonnie closed up shop this month to pursue her university dreams! Which is both amazing and a little bit sad as it means my bi-monthly boxes of joy are no more! This beautiful book by Mira … Continue reading Everything Here is Beautiful – Mira T Lee | Review
Our first book club read of the year! This was one of those rare times we didn't have to vote on what book would be our next pick, because as soon as someone suggested it we all jumped in to say we all wanted to read it! A unanimous decision is always a joy, and … Continue reading Becoming – Michelle Obama | Review
I absolutely adore reading debut novels from authors as there's no expectation yet of what it should be. Anne Griffin's When All is Said was no exception, and given she's an Irish author (and the book is set in Ireland), I was ready to love it from page one... BOOK BLURB Five toasts. Five people.

Nevermoor is the tale of Morrigan Crow - who has grown up on the Cursed Child register, and is destined to die as the clock strikes midnight on her eleventh birthday. But the miraculous Jupiter North whisks her away mere hours from … Continue reading Review: Nevermoor – Jessica Townsend
I'd seen so much about this book around, and the lovely Sachi over at @sachireads on Bookstagram adored it and I trust her taste in diverse reads, so when Simon & Schuster offered me a copy of the book to review I jumped at the chance! Emergency Contact follows the story of Penny, who is … Continue reading Review: Emergency Contact – Mary H.K. Choi
"Lenny, small and sharp, has a younger brother Davey who won't stop growing - and at seven is as tall as a man. Raised by their mother, they have food and a roof over their heads, but not much else. The bright spot every week is the arrival of the latest issue of the Burrell's Build-It-at-Home … Continue reading Review: Lenny’s Book of Everything – Karen Foxlee
I almost don't know where to start with this one. I was super excited to read this, as I spent many of my teenage years binge watching Freaks and Geeks and Cougar Town (don't judge, it was brilliant) and adoring that in Busy there was a badass and beautiful woman on TV who was probably the closest to … Continue reading Review: This Will Only Hurt A Little – Busy Philipps
