    19 June, 2017

      I’ve been a very big fan of Rachael Lucas’s books ever since I read Sealed With A Kiss and fell in love with it. That meant I got super excited when I heard that Rachael was working on a YA novel. I was very lucky to get to read an early chapter of The State…

  • REVIEW: Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt

    27 February, 2017

One minute I’d started the first page and the next I was scrambling to find time to read the rest because I rapidly became obsessed. Unconventional is told from the perspective of Lexi Angelo, who has grown up helping her dad with his comic convention business.…

  • REVIEW: This Beats Perfect by Rebecca Denton

    23 February, 2017

    I read contemporary YA for that fuzzy feeling you get in your stomach after you’ve finished reading a book, that satisfying feeling that makes you want to climb inside it and hug all the characters. That is exactly how This Beats Perfect made me feel. Denton perfectly shapes a world where The Keep are the biggest boyband…

  • REVIEW: Nightwanderers by C.J. Flood

    3 June, 2016

    It has been three years since C.J. Flood’s award-winning debut novel, Infinite Sky, was released, which I described as “deep and heartfelt“. In Nightwanderers, Flood returns with her signature emotional read to deliver a book that is guaranteed to grip readers long after they’ve put it down.

    8 February, 2016

    I love that moment when you read a book and you keep glancing at the clock, seeing how many more pages it’s possible to squeeze in because you love it so much and can’t bear to stop reading it. How Hard Can Love Be? was definitely one of those books for me. I was hooked from the…

    1 February, 2016

    If you’ve been reading Queen of Contemporary for a while, you’ll know how much I loved The Sin Eater’s Daughter and so I was incredibly excited to read the sequel, The Sleeping Prince. It’s always nerve-wracking to start a sequel, but especially so when you have such high expectations. Luckily, The Sleeping Prince didn’t disappoint!…
