Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julie Israel: Review

Thanks to Penguin Random House at Netgalley for allowing me to read this gorgeous book for free (in exchange for an honest review)! This book was released by Penguin on June 2nd 2017 and it doesn’t have nearly enough buzz surrounding it. For me it was better than ‘Me Before You’, ‘Everything, Everything’, ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, ‘Fangirl’ and other popular bestsellers from overlapping genres and I would definitely recommend giving it a read.

A Court of Spoilers: Sarah J Maas Discussion

Okay so we need to talk. I will say this once: If you HAVE NOT READ the ACOTAR series (and I mean read it cover-to-cover, including the latest book ACOWAR) then you will almost definitely not want to read any further. I will ruin it for you. I mean you can probably finish this sentence (and maybe even the whole paragraph) but you’re playing a very dangerous game you naughty thing – close. the. page. Welcome fellow series readers and reckless spoiler loving crazies (I’m assuming you guys are the only ones left at this point) and welcome to my ACOWAR mega-rant. This is everything I need to talk about in light of…

This Month’s TBR

Okay, so this post is definitely a little self-indulgent and if you’re a lone book reader (like I used to be) you’ll probably consider this post akin to oversharing. So, warnings given, if you don’t want to hear about my overambitious plans for this months reading then now is the time to click away and go play slither.io or something. If that’s not your jam I really don’t know how you found yourself here. Go indulge yourself in a hobby, learn about goji berries, the world is your oyster.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: Review

So, this little post is about Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy, and more specifically the first instalment in the series. First things first, I will admit I have wanted to love this series since I first heard about it and that might have been why I didn’t read it straight away. I was worried I’d be disappointed by it and whilst the book wasn’t everything I had hoped it would be, I did enjoy it and the series still has a chance to sweep me off my tentative feet.
