The Day We Disappeared by Lucy Robinson is a book that’s been on my shelf for about 10 million years.
I originally picked it up at a Penguin event I went to back in 2015 (that time I crammed all the free books into 2 bags!) and it’s been winking at me ever since.
I finally got around to reading it on holiday this year and I absolutely LOVED it.

Happy Sunday, everyone!
I’ve written another book review – hurrah! It’s one that I was meant to write 3 months ago…we’ll brush over that part.
Bonnier Zaffre – thank you very much, guys! – sent me an ARC of The Other Half of Happiness by Ayisha Malik earlier this year.
I was so excited to read it as I loved the first book in the series, Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged.

I have no idea what has happened this year.
Apart from the world apparently going completely mad, I’ve hardly read any books!
Five. That’s how bad. Just five. Shocking.
Anyway, I thought I’d do a review of one of them because, why not?

Hola lovely people!
This year is absolutely flying by – I can’t believe we’re nearly halfway through already…
Last week, I celebrated my 24th birthday by eating lots (of course) and going to the Hay on Wye book festival.

A couple of years ago, I read Probably Nothing by Matilda Tristram – a picture book that depicted a woman’s battle with cancer.
It stayed with me because it was so different and it was such a unique way of talking about such a difficult topic.
So when Hot Key Books sent me Night Shift by Debi Gliori, I was really interested to see how the author had managed to depict depression through her illustrations. Continue reading “Night Shift Review | Books”
It’s nearly Halloween which can only mean one thing – scary book recommendations!
I love spending time with my nieces & nephews at Halloween. Dressing them up to go trick & treating is so much fun & when they’re excited, I get excited!
But Halloween can be fun for us grown-ups too & a good place to start is with books. Continue reading “Halloween Reading | Books”
I’m all about the characters in a book.
To me, they are the biggest aspect of the whole thing – I love seeing how their minds work & what decisions they make!

Well folks, we’re into my favourite season – autumn! I love it when the weather gets that little bit colder & it’s acceptable to cwtch up with a book, an oversized jumper and a hot cup of tea.
I didn’t read as many books as I hoped to over the summer but I did read enough to warrant a wrap-up so here it is 🙂 Continue reading “Summer Reading Wrap-Up | Books”

I have something to admit…
These past few days, I’ve been slacking. I usually wake up early every morning and write a little bit more of the novel I’ve been working on. But recently, I’ve been feeling a tad stuck.
So I’ve dug out a few books from my bookshelf to get me back in the mood and I thought I’d share them with you as they’re pretty helpful if you need some writing motivation. Continue reading “5 Books Every Writer Should Own | Books”
