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. Title: Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index Author: Julie Israel Date published: 2nd June 2017 Pages: 352 Summary:  It’s hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone. It&#8217…

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.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon: Review

With a new film on the cards (and with my copy slowly gathering dust on the shelf) I decided it was high-time I got round to reading Everything, Everything. For me it was a far cry from what its title suggested but I’m glad I finally picked it up. It was a very quick read (I finished it within hours of starting) but had a few merits worth commenting on. The following, as usual, is only my own response but I’d like to hear your views on this one… Title: Everything, Everything                             Author: Nicola Yoon                          Date published: 2015 Pages: 320 Summary:  My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic…
