48118801

Publication Date: June 9th 2020


Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happy endings. If they were real, her mother would still be able to remember her name and not in a care home with early onset dementia. A condition that Saoirse may one day turn out to have inherited. So she’s not looking for a relationship. She doesn’t see the point in igniting any romantic sparks if she’s bound to burn out.

But after a chance encounter at an end-of-term house party, Saoirse is about to break her own rules. For a girl with one blue freckle, an irresistible sense of mischief, and a passion for rom-coms. Read More.

July Wrap Up!

Howdy and happy August!!

This is usually the part where I say “omg how is it August already?” or “wow time sure does fly when the world is on fireee” but I don’t have time for that because I read fifteen books in July! Fifteen!!!! I have never read this many books in one month in my life.

wowza

I’m shocked, shooketh and downright gobsmacked. 

I was truly on a roll this month when it came to reading and I loved it but now it’s time to wrap all these bad boys up!black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12 Continue reading “July Wrap Up!”

Another Kindle haul because I can’t stop myself.

Howdy fellow booknerds 🙂

I think it’s about time someone sits me down and gives me an intervention because I just can’t help myself. I see E-books for cheap and I gotta buy ’em. I just gotta.

See this is one of the many reasons I don’t trust myself with a proper bank account yet no matter how much my dad tries to make me get one.

In the past … I don’t even know how long, since my last Kindle Haul I suppose, I have acquired 9 new E-Books and I’m going to talk all about those today 🙂


The Last True Poets of The Sea by Julia Drake.

The Last True Poets of The Sea was a simple case of “ooo pretty cover” and “ooo lastLGBT+ romance” then the next thing I knew I’d bought it and I was regretting my lack of impulse control.

This book follows a girl called Violet. All her life she’s been told her family are very lucky, hence why her great-great grandmother survived a shipwreck and founded the town of Lyric where Violet and her brother Sam return to every summer. When Sam tries to take his own life Violet is shipped back of to Lyric. While she’s there she’s determined to make amends.

Although I’ve barely heard anything about this book prior to buying it, all the reviews I’ve seen are super positive and I’m really looking forward to this.

ARC Review: Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall

*ARC courtesy of Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

bm

Publication Date: July 7th


Luc O’Donnell is tangentially–and reluctantly–famous. Now that his dad’s making a comeback, Luc’s back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.

To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship…and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. Unfortunately apart from being gay, single, and really, really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust has settled. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.

But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that’s when you get used to someone. Start falling for them. Don’t ever want to let them go. Read More.

June Wrap Up

We’ve made it through another month people. Round of applause for us👏. I feel like we should all get a prize at the end of every month this year. A participation trophy at the very least. We deserve it.

Truthfully. I don’t remember much of what happened this month. Before checking my Goodreads and my handy-dandy notebook I didn’t think I’d read that much this month but I’ve actually read 7 books and 1 little novella.

At first I was like “oh is that it?” because the past couple of months I’ve been reaching that 10 book a month goal so 7 seems like a let down but no. 7 books is great. Me from a couple of months ago would be thrilled with 7 books in one month and the final month of school no less!

5 LGBT+ books on my TBR that I really want to read.

Hey :))) I’m a bit late today. I’ve been procrastinating. Clearly my plans for a productive summer are going well.

Today I am going to be talking about 5 lgbt+ books that I currently have on my TBR. Hopefully this time next year I’ll be recommending these books instead of just telling myself I’ll to get them eventually.

I’ve kept this list down to just the books I own in some format or other because if not then this list would be incredibly long and nobody has time for that.

The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag

Hellooo :)) I have had a traumatic night 😂. So I went out earlier with a friend to walk his dog and we were chatting, minding our own business when a seagull swoops down and tries to get a cat on the opposite side of the road. Ten seconds later this same seagull flies back around and dives at us!!! We ducked. We screamed. I am scarred.

Apparently this isn’t the first “seagulls gone wild” incident either and, according to my friend, police were called earlier today because seagulls were just diving at people.

So yeah … I am never leaving my house again. The seagulls are rising up.

Anyways, focusing on something not bird related, I am here today with a tag created by the amazing Virginia @ The Sassy Library in celebration of it being pride month. Thank you so much for the tag! If you go over to her post she has really cute graphics to go with the questions.
