Where the Stars Still Shine was an enjoyable contemporary YA book. It was well written and interesting. The lack of gushing praise is my fault, I think I am finding some YA books difficult to get through! Maybe I’m burnt out on YA? It just hasn’t been my jam recently. If you enjoyed this book, […]
So after I finished the previous book in the Ladybirds series (Sun Kissed), I went straight into Star Struck. I feel there isn’t much I can say about Starstruck without spoiling it. Starstruck is the darkest book in the foursome and should be read last. I loved the deeper issues and themes tackled, with each […]
I read Sun Kissed immediately before going on a Summer Holiday to Thailand with my boyfriend. It instantly had me so excited for that romantic feeling of the sun, sand and surf. I don’t even like beaches. I was giggling to myself like a teenager, I could hardly contain the girlish enjoyment I got from […]
I didn’t love ACOTAR. I didn’t hate it, but it earned 3.5 Biscuits. I was excited for ACOMAF in that guilty pleasure way.

Ada is in desperate need of an escape. She isn’t treated very well and seen as rational, quiet girl, she struggles with immobility due to […]
I am sorry to say that I didn’t truly enjoy any of April’s bookish offerings. All three I reviewed were a little bit ‘meh’… At least I had some variety, I suppose. On the plus side, May holds a lot of good pickings in store!
Okay this was pretty cute. I liked the quirkiness of Because You’ll Never Meet Me. Though unfortunately it did get a little bit too Maximum Ride by James Patterson crossed with X-Men at one point, with reference to the scientific experiment backstories and theories. The medium it was told in was interesting. I think it […]
Dan Marshall is not a nice person, but if you read this book, you won’t need me to tell you this. Why? Because Dan will tell you himself, over and over again. I want to be clear; this book did not offend me. There is no real level of swearing, gay jokes, fart jokes, sex […]
