Ink Road* recently contacted me and asked me if I'd like to take part in the blog tour for The Jungle, and of course I said yes (and squealed and did a happy dance, because this is the first blog tour I've ever taken part in!). As soon as the book was sent to me, I read it straight away - and I was surprised at just how delicately it handled the topic of refugee camps.

As a bookworm (or rather, book dragon), I always look forward to the prospect of being given new books to read. When a surprise proof copy of The State of Grace from Macmillan was sent to me in the post, I put everything I was doing on hold to read the book, and I finished it within a day. It was beautiful.

The One Memory of Flora Banks is a book I've seen all over Instagram. It's been getting a lot of love recently, and considering how much I love YA, I thought it was only right to read it and see if it lived up to the hype.

Caraval has been one of my most anticipated reads of 2017, and let me tell you this: the lengthy wait was one-hundred percent worth it. I ended up reading the whole book in a day - I really couldn't put it down! - and every page of it was just as good as I thought it would be.

After reading lots of fantasy lately, I thought it was about time to finally delve back into another one of my favourite genres, young adult. I'd heard lots of brilliant things about Wing Jones, so when I won a copy of the book from the lovely Nazima (@snazzyreads) on Twitter, I just knew I had to read it straight away.
