My fav reads of 2017 so far.

I know, I know, I probably should’ve posted this in June but everything fell a bit behind with blogging and life, that darn hiatus.
So, let’s pretend for a moment we’re back in June and I’m totally organised yeah?
Much appreciated.

So, we’re (over) halfway through the year, I believe it’s time to round-up my favourite reads of the year so far, we do love ourselves a list!

T5W #14: Authors you want to read more from

Ah yes, my trusty post of the week where I don’t have to worry about coming up with the whole thing by myself, it’s nice to have this post every week so I know I#m always delivering some content at least! Top 5 Wednesdays are great and it is such an easy way to showcase so many people’s different opinions and ideas, I love reading them all every week.
This week we’re talking about authors we want more more more from! How to narrow down that list! Some authors manage to release a book a year (HOW THOUGH), whilst others release one every few and leave us salivating for more.

Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group now run by Samantha at Thoughts On Tomes. Where you are given a topic to post about every Wednesday; simple. You can find the link to the Goodreads group here.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin.

An ARC review; The Upside of Unrequited – Becky Albertalli

I have had the best time of my life reading contemporaries recently! I usually avoid them, much preferring to live in a fantasy world (sadly, not literally), but I must say, I’ve been reading some phenomenal books. I continued that streak with The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. However, I must make a confession, I have not read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, forgive me. It is now, on the top of my to-buy list come payday because of both how wonderful this book is, and because of all the interlinking characters, I suspect are in Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

Goodreads Synopsis

TUSOUSeventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker, Reid. He’s a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.

Right?

The review is spoiler free, of course!
