HAPPY WOMEN’S MONTH to all my lovely bookish ladies out there! And what better way to spend the month dedicated to being a female than reading about strong and empowering women!

Caraval has taken me a while to pick up. I got it in May and only ever got round to reading it in July because I saw it as a high fantasy novel and I was in a more contemporary mood. I wasn’t ready to have to adapt to a whole new world with who knows what type of magic.… Read more →

The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon – Book Review!

The Sun Is Also A Star is a fan-freaking-tastic novel by the author of best-selling Everything, Everything, Nicola Yoon.
