Welcome to what I hope is going to become a regular thing on my blog. You’ve probably guessed what this is (it really does not take much explanation) but basically the whole idea is a really short quick post telling you about a book I’ve picked to represent the week. Maybe it’s a book that’s been out awhile but I haven’t gotten around to it, maybe it’s a book I’ve read and loved, maybe it’s an anticipated read- the whole point is that there is no rules! So without further ado I hope you like my pick of the week!
I’m delighted to welcome the wonderful Catherine Doyle to my blog for an interview. She has been one of my favourite authors ever since I read Vendetta a couple of years ago. I’ve even met her a few times at DeptCon (an annual book convention in Dublin). She also has a new novel out now called The Storm Keeper’s Island!

Estelle Maskame is one of those auto-buy authors for me and I always have super high expectations for her books (because they are all just so good, honestly). This book (Just Don’t Mention It) surpassed my expectations and in my opinion this is Maskame’s best book yet. To me, it had a completely different feel to anything she’s done before and I’m going to tell you why I think this over the course of the review. Continue reading “Book Review: Just Don’t Mention It by Estelle Maskame”
Recently I’ve thought a bit about potential readers who don’t read and why people don’t read books as much as we readers would. I also wanted to think about a way that I could talk about this without simply writing a discussion post alone and so I’m delighted to welcome my friend Fionnuala to my blog for an interview!
Fionnuala was an avid reader (the reason we became friends was actually because I saw her with a Derek Landy book in our first year of secondary school!) in her childhood years but took quite a few years break from Continue reading “What Makes a Reader? Discussion (Collab Post)”
I’ve put a small list of books that I definitely want to read over the summer at some stage! Now that exams have stopped taking over my life I am ready to get lost in the world of books again. Bring it on!
1. Scythe and Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman
As you can see from the title today’s post is going to be a Taylor Swift tag because I just love Taylor Swift. I went to see her on her Reputation tour and wow, it was amazing. I would go again right now if I could. This tag that I’m doing is a older one I think so I hope you don’t mind but I just had to add some Reputation into the mix!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of books! As this year is coming to an end I have a very special treat. An interview with a fantastic author whose books I discovered this year. This author is the talented Chris Russell, author of the addictive Songs About a Girl trilogy.
In case you’re wondering here is the Goodreads synopsis for book one:
Charlie Bloom never wanted to be ‘with the band’. She’s happiest out of the spotlight, behind her camera, unseen and unnoticed. But when she’s asked to take backstage photos for hot new boy band Fire&Lights, she can’t pass up the chance. Continue reading “Interview with ‘Songs About a Girl’ author, Chris Russell”
*This book was sent to me by the publisher but this not does not affect my review of this book. All thoughts expressed are honest.*
Since Goodbye Perfect was announced it has been on my ‘I’m so excited, eek, 2018’ book list so it isn’t so hard to imagine how excited and thankful I was to receive a copy from My Kinda Book (Thank you so much!).
So, what’s it about?
Well, let me tell you. Eden and her best friend Bonnie have their GCSEs rapidly approaching but Eden isn’t worried about Bonnie. She’s an A star student. That is until she runs away leaving Eden one, ominous message. Even more shocking and surpising is who Bonnie ran away with.
First of all, I am so so sorry, this post was so overdue. Unfortunately, I had really important exams which needed my full attention so I had to take a break from my blog. I hope you will all still enjoy this post despite the long wait.
