Hi, book blogging friends! I wanted to make this guide on a hot new release, A Thousand Beginnings and Endings edited by Ellen Oh and Elise Chapman. I look forward to finding this book in my local library, and when I do, I’d love to read-along with some bookworm buddies. If you wanna have a fun discussion, continue reading.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber has been one of my favourite books for 2018. I thought it’d be fun to make a list of celebrities who’d fit the roles of four of the main characters.
I haven’t seen the movie adaption to Simon vs. The Homosapien Agenda. I rated this book 5/5 stars in 2015, but have never gone back to it. Last year, I read Alberti’s new book, The Upside to Unrequited. Now that was amazing. I also rated it 5/5 stars, but it certainly left a greater impact on me (click here to read my raving review). I’m sure if I reread Simon nowadays, I’d either absolutely adore it, or hate it (because my standards for Alberti’s writing are higher). But none of this explains why I haven’t seen the movie, Love, Simon, even though it’s reached a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes!
Have you just jumped onto the bandwagon of following Lara Jean’s love life? Are you in the mood for some contemporary fluff and tiny moments of embarrassment? Or maybe you’ve seen the Netflix trailer for the TV show adaption, and you don’t want to spoil yourself. Have no fear; the romance trope-queen is here! I will give you a few recommendations and read-a-likes that should help your endeavour for a modern day fairytale.
We’re officially half-way through 2018. I have only read 35 books this year (excluding my university reads), and even fewer that were published in 2018. But please note: most have been published recently (within the last decade). Here are seven reads that have been the highlight of the past seven months. They’re in no particular order of favouritism, all have been stellar! 🙂
This isn’t an accidental post. It’s chilly down here in Australia (… for us, anyway). It’s the favourite season for most bookworms since we can curl up in bed and dive into our new books. I chose this tag as it seemed to be the only one NOT Christmas themed (I may be cold in Australia, but I’m not crazy). The Winter Wonderland Book Tag was created by Allie from The Perks of Being a Book Freak. All books listed below have been read (perhaps not published) in 2018.
This really should be a list of 15 books I have on pre-order. Maybe someday I will. As for now, I’m just admiring them from afar on my blog. Check out any of these upcoming releases for 2018 if you want the latest and greatest YA novels.
Happy Friday the 13th! Here are thirteen YA books I want to read that were published this month.
I’ve just survived another term at uni, and I want to make my time off count!
