After becoming slightly (totally) overwhelmed by the amount of unread books on my shelf, a few months ago I put myself on a book buying ban and have somehow managed to stick to it. I promise you, no one is more surprised at this than me. So clearly the logical thing to do was to taunt myself with all the wonderful books coming out in March, by making a list of everything I want but can’t have. Yeah, I definitely didn’t think this through…Read More
I was recently asked by the lovely people from Rainbow Book Box if I’d like to receive a sample box of their upcoming bookish subscription service. Rainbow Book Box is a new YA subscription, specialising in diverse books. Meaning each month their box will contain a new YA release, written by BAME, LGBTQAIP+ and disabled authors. The moment I heard that this was book box focusing on diverse books and authors, I couldn’t have been more excited. I jumped at the chance to receive one, as it’s not something I’ve seen many bookish subscription services focus on.

Hence today’s quiz, making the hard decision for you. All you need to do is pick your favourite thing about autumn, whether that be snuggly movie night in, or breathing in the autumnal air, you’ll get a 2017 September-November release recommended to you.
(Equally, you could just go through all eight options and once again overwhelm yourself with great sounding books once again…)
I have this odd vendetta against spring as a season, I’m not sure quite sure what it is exactly (<- this is entirely untrue. I 100% know why but whenever I’ve explain it to people, for some reason, they seem to think it’s more than bizarre. So in an attempt to keep whatever reputation I may have here, I’m just going to swiftly brush past that explanation…) But, if there’s one thing I do love above almost all things, it’s puppies. Coincidently enough, I also love books *shock horror*… Therefore combining the two, whilst also giving spring a little attention, seemed fair enough. So today I’m recommending some new releases coming this spring that I think sound fabulous, through the power of puppies. Enjoy! Read More
