Blog Tour: The Couple by Helly Acton

It’s my stop on the blog tour for “The Couple”, a fun easy read about a world where societal norms are turned on their head and it’s weird to be in a romantic couple. A really enjoyable rom-com, a big 4 stars from me!… Read More Blog Tour: The Couple by Helly Acton

Book Review: The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

A short but powerful dystopian story that really makes you think. The UK is underwater due to rapidly rising sea levels and this book explores the story of one woman coping with motherhood, love, loss and chaos all at the same time. It’s not your typical read so don’t go in expecting full descriptive paragraphs and lengthy dialogue because that’s not what you’ll find. I really liked this one so it’s 5 stars from me.… Read More Book Review: The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

Book Review: The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey

I’m sad to say that “The Boy on the Bridge” didn’t offer much in terms of action so for me it was a little bland and slow. The characters weren’t all that likeable and many of them were forgettable.

It’s 2 stars from me.… Read More Book Review: The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey

Book Review: Sweet Fruit, Sour Land by Rebecca Ley

I loved this tale of London in the future and I actually can’t stop thinking about it now I’ve finished.

I liked all of the characters and the style of the writing, but it’s the topic that makes “Sweet Fruit, Sour Land” 5 stars for me.… Read More Book Review: Sweet Fruit, Sour Land by Rebecca Ley

Book Review: The Lord of the Flies by William Golding

I feel like there is a lot of content here I was never able to appreciate as a teenager and I know that this book is generally disliked by those who it has been forced upon. Perhaps it’s because I was able to read at my own pace (3 days, not 3 months) or maybe because I wasn’t being made to read aloud to the class in a funny accent or perhaps forcing students to analyse a book’s every word just is not the way to go about reading…… Read More Book Review: The Lord of the Flies by William Golding
