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!

Hello, hello! This Friday’s review is something a little different: this week, I finished my first ever buddy read on the blog – yay! Becca and I were joined by Kayla to get stuck into this 2006 John Green novel.
Happy February everybody! Before we plunge into my birthday month, I want to have a look back at January and see how I’m doing with my various bookish goals, plus share some stuff I got up to and some blogs I loved reading!
The Dixon family are ‘internet famous’. What began as a mommy blog run by Ashley Dixon has turned into an international empire – and her daughter Claire wants out. Having everything from potty training to junior prom discussed online is no longer her idea of fun and the perks of sponsorship deals don’t hold a candle to her dream of going to college and finally being a normal girl. Her twin sister Poppy thinks she’s mad to give up the glamour of fame, especially when all it requires are a few hair tutorial YouTube videos in return… oh, and giving up your privacy, embarrassing viral outbursts and being forced in front of your mom’s camera 24/7. However, underneath the insta-perfect facade, the cracks are beginning to show, with traumatic moments from the past and the uncertainty of their future as celebrities and as a family all come to a head.
My first review on the blog! Ahh! My first review of an ARC!! Ahhh!!
Now that’s out of my system…
Nova in New York follows a teenager from a small town as she enrolls on a prestigious summer course at a ballet school in New York. Nova leaves behind her family – an absentminded father obsessed with the stars and an aunt who dreamed of dancing but lives with cystic fibrosis – to take on three weeks of intensive training under strict tutors. Struggling without their support and feeling lost in the big city, Nova has to figure out her place in the world of dance and decide whether or not to fight for it.
