Three Dark Crowns Review – Kendare Blake

Blog image sourced from http://www.kendareblake.com I have to admit, this isn’t the first time I’ve picked up this book.

John Green is a legend in the YA fiction world, I think we can all agree on that. And Turtles All The Way Down is another fantastic example of him exploring an area others fear to tread, and it’s a delight. I’ve split this review down into three parts so that I can really focus…

5 Books That You Need To Read Right Away

I’m a big reader. If you know me, you’ll know that I usually have some form of book with me wherever I go. And if I’m not reading, then I’m usually writing instead. So to celebrate all things books, and also the release of the amazing John Green’s new book Turtles All The Way Down…
