I wanted to share with you my favourites out of that pile of 28, in the hope that you might find a new favourite of your own to add to your shelves this year.
Book Review | Nicotine and Napalm, by Emily Priest
This is not fluffy poetry. It's filled with Emily's feelings; her wants, needs, regrets. There's pain, darkness, and guts galore.
My favourite books of 2018
I read some wonderful books last year and thought I would share my favourite reads of 2018.
Book Review | Spinster, by Kate Bolick
Having been happily (for the most part) single for the last three years, I am evermore curious about the idea of single life and what it really means. I felt like a parody, picking up Kate Bolick's Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own from the library and tucking it into my over-stuffed backpack.
Book Review | Eat Up, by Ruby Tandoh
I spend about 80% of my waking hours thinking about food. The other 20% of my time is actually spent eating the stuff. It was time I started reading about it, too, and Ruby Tandoh's much acclaimed 'Eat Up' seemed like the logical book to take home next.
Book Review | I’ll Give You the Sun, by Jandy Nelson
Are Young Adult novels for grownups too? Jandy Nelson's book is sweet, creative and addresses some important issues for young and slightly-less-young alike.
Book Review | Ice Cream for Breakfast by Laura Jane Williams
Ice Cream for Breakfast should be read when most needed, and in delicious, bite-sized chunks – just as you would with your favourite tub of Ben and Jerry's.
Honest Haiku: Six
The fifth in my Honest Haiku series, published for World Book Day 2018
Book Review | The Power, by Naomi Alderman
Does Naomi Alderman's award-winning novel, The Power, live up to its name?
Book Review | When Breath Becomes Air, by Paul Kalanithi
This is a book full to the brim with feelings and thoughts. It made me think, tear up, cry, laugh, and wish for more.
