Anna and the French Kiss - Book Review

Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss is a phenomenal debut YA novel from Stephanie Perkins. It walks the line between hilarious and emotive, hysterical and hard hitting. If you’re looking for a story that grabs at your heart and holds it with incredible characters, a beautiful setting and many a near miss, you’ll find a home in this story. After many a Tumblr recommendation of this novel, I picked it up in Waterstones and set myself down to read.

The Last Star - Book Review

Book Review of The Last Star by Rick Yancey

I’m always wary about finishing sci-fi series’. There’s always a lot hanging on the end of a trilogy, especially one where there’s been an apocalyptic scenario. Either the world will end, or it won’t.

If I was Your Girl - Book Review

Book Review: If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo

This is one of those books that is very hard to forget. While I had some issues with this book, and at times found it a little predictable, it doesn’t much matter. This is one of those books that matters because of what it talks about: in particular the issues presented to teen trans girls in a world that isn’t ready for them.

A door to nowhere - Book Review

Book Review: A Door to Nowhere by @madelinestanford

Having read Like Hell by Madeline Stanford some time ago, I was expecting this story to be good, and it didn’t disappoint. The story is centred around Aurora, whose Grandmother predicts the dates on which the pair of them will die. When her Grandmother’s prediction for her death date comes true, Rory starts a countdown to her own death and starts trying to live life to the full.

Book Review: The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson

I’ve had this book for a while, and I put of reading it for some time. Mostly because I’ve become very wary about books focused on being transgender. Not because the stories are bad, or unimportant. Mostly because they tend to be very similar. It’s only been two weeks since I read Meredith Russo’s debut, If I Was Your Girl, and so I was worried the story lines would be too similar. However, this book gave me a very pleasant and refreshing surprise.

Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I could write a fanfiction about Fangirl. I love it that much. As a writer of fanfiction, a lover of books and a massive nerd, it’s very difficult not to.

Cath is a shy girl moving to college on her own. Separated from her twin, Wren, for the first time, she finds comfort in the only other constant in her life – writing.
