June Favourites | Books, TV & Music!

How is it the end of June?! I can’t believe how quickly this year is going! It seems like yesterday was January, and now we’re halfway through and will soon be counting down to the winter. I thought I would share some of my favourite things from June with you on the blog today, talking about books, TV and music. Enjoy! BOOKS My exams finished in June so I’ve luckily been able to catch up on lots of the books I wasn’t able to read because of them. It’s been SUCH a good reading month that it was very hard to…

An Entirely Unrealistic December TBR

I cannot believe that it’s already December. This year has flown by at an incredible rate, and I’ve read some amazing books so far. I want to binge read my way to the end – so I’ve put together a very large TBR that I want to work my way through up until New Year. Who knows if I’ll read them all?! (Probably not.)

REVIEW: Lobsters by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison

I’ve wanted to read Lobsters ever since hearing about it at the start of the year. I absolutely adore contemporaries (hence my blog name!) and so I think I’ve always known how much I would love Lobsters. Hannah and Sam, both in the summer before university, have one thing in common: they have yet to lose their virginity. Their summers are filled with adventure, antics and a quest to find ‘The One.’ If I could describe Lobsters in one word I would label it ‘awkward’ in the best way possible. Teenage life is awkward, which makes it such an amazing portrayal…
