Hey guys! Welcome to March’s Book Rec Lottery post!

The Book Rec Lottery is a feature run by myself and Michaela @ A Novel Idea where we get reading recommendations from you, the lovely book community, based around a different theme each month. We then randomly pick five to highlight and hopefully find you a new favourite book!

london book tour!

Hello hello hello!

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be in one of my favourite places in the world: London. I had a fabulous couple of days seeing a bunch of shows with my gorgeous pal Amy, then reunited with Michaela who you may know from A Novel Idea (go check her blog out for amazing reviews and bookish content!).

We then did what we do best – troll through bookshops! It was a Sunday, so we were on a bit of a time constraint, but we still managed a good rummage through three amazing bookshops in the city!

Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.

Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.
