This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.


A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.

They’re polar opposites.

June 2020 Wrap Up

Books that Impacted Me

Today is my 28th birthday, and probably the 28th anniversary of my love of books. I’ve read hundreds of books across my life, from reading with my parents, learning to read in school, to setting up my own book blog (and subsequently a Book Tube channel) sharing some of my favourite titles.

While I have tonnes of favourite books for a plethora of different reasons, there are some that have stuck with me throughout my life. Isn’t it really coincidental that it’s the same amount as the number of years I’m turning?
