Holly Black has long been one of my favourite authors, so of course I was eagerly waiting to read The Cruel Prince.

Surprisingly (since the local library usually only has books 3+ years old), I found The Cruel Prince waiting for me on the shelf of the YA section.

Since finishing, you can be sure I am going to purchase this book for my collection. No joke guys, it’s incredible!

Survive the Savage Sea by Dougal Robertson is a book I stumbled upon completely by chance. At Worthing train station there’s a little book shelf where you can buy a book (for a donation).

Like many other book lovers, I’m a huge fan of Goodreads. The app does a top job of connecting users to readers, authors and the bookish community. It’s also a brilliant platform to showcase your book reviews and opinions.

I especially love the fact that it can work almost as a ‘to do list’ for books! As an avid lover of lists (and books), there’s nothing I love more than spending hours creating my ‘shelves’ on the app. However, I’m sure we could all agree that Goodreads isn’t perfect.

Here are the features and improvements I’d love to see Goodreads make and introduce. These suggestions are my opinions and informed by my 4+ years as an avid Goodreads user!

Today I’ll be reviewing YA fantasy novel Everless by Sara Holland, which was released back in January. This is a book I’d been looking forward to for a long time and sat at the top of my TBR pile for weeks, so I’m glad I got around to reading it!
