sister author interview
Today on my blog I am joined by two wonderful new voices in YA literature. Please welcome twins Ashley and Leslie Saunders. They are award-winning filmmakers who honed their love of storytelling at The University of Texas at Austin. Their first co-written novel The Rule of One is definitely not one to be missed. I’m delighted they have taken the time out of their busy schedules to have a chat with me!

Book of the Week

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!

Book Review: Just Don’t Mention It by Estelle Maskame

Hi everyone!

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.

What Makes a Reader? Discussion (Collab Post)

Hi everyone!

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)”

Interview

Interview with ‘Songs About a Girl’ author, Chris Russell

Hello everyone!

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”

Review

ARC Review- Goodbye Perfect by Sara Barnard

goodbye perfect 1*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.
