I have to send a HUGE thank you to my good friend Mischenko over at Read Rant Rock & Roll for nominating me for this tag. It’s been such fun completing it and it’s so pretty too, with all the autumnal colours… (orange is my favourite colour so I’ve loved plastering this post in orange!). Please stop by and visit Mischenko who is awesome!

I literally just reviewed this at the weekend. This book blew my mind away, it tackles mental health, family lies and family dynamics and it does it all in such a real way, it doesn’t hide from the brutal truth of any of the subjects it is tackling. There is no painting over the subjects so that the reader feels comfortable but in the same vein as a reader, you are completely absorbed and love the characters wholeheartedly.
This has the cliffhanger to beat all cliffhangers! This got to me so much I messaged the author as soon as I finished the book (well after I’d finished swearing) to make sure there was going to be a book two because the thought that it was all just ending like THAT was unbearable! I met Anna a few weeks ago and had a conversation with her about it over a drink and she said that she’s had a lot of people commenting on how it ended. Personally, I love it when a book leaves me looking for pages that aren’t there, swearing and clawing for words that just aren’t going to appear like this book did. It’s a great sign that I’m totally invested in the story…just as long as another book is coming because if it’s a standalone I may just throw myself off a cliff!
Aven Ellis writes the best sports romance, it’s cute, happy and her latest was probably my favourite yet. I always come away from her books feeling warm and fuzzy (not a feeling I’m accustomed to I’ll admit)!
I think we’re close enough to Halloween to get a Horror on the page! This is a great book about vampires in Swindon! I love Zoë Markham’s work and this book is no exception, so well written with excellent characters who you love to hate.
Awesome, just bloody awesome! I think I ground a few teeth down reading this.
There are a lot of books coming up next year but at this point, I think this is the only book left on my list for this year that I will absolutely lose my shit if I don’t get my hands on it! Yes, Hodder, I’m looking at you!
Thanks so much for tagging me Mischenko, it’s been fun doing this one! I will go ahead and tag a few people. As always, sorry if I’ve duplicate tagged (I just can’t keep up with these things) if you don’t do tags, don’t have time etc there is no pressure. And if I’ve not tagged you but you want to take part have at it.
