10 amazing books I've read in 2018 so far.

One half of 2018 is over and behind us. Never mind that I am still emotionally in 2017 - I wouldn't be surprised if tomorrow is 2019. Why is time flying, really??? - but it means that it's time to look back at the first half of 2018 and see if I've made progress - verdict, I haven't. I haven't actually read much this year, as I would've liked to, but I read some really good books, so here's a list of my favourite reads of 2018 so far!

Julian Winters talks Running With Lions, queer rep and diversity in sports || Interview + Giveaway

Running With Lions was a book I was sleeping on until Book Expo week. I still wonder how the book managed to completely fly under my radar until then, but a few recommendations, and that wonderful cover and blurb was enough for me to get sold on, and I went for it. And man was I glad for that decision. Running With Lions is an adorable, soulful and warm book about a group of such endearing characters who are inclusive, authentic and crafted with so much heart. The book is an instant rec, and today we have the author Julian Winters over at the blog for an interview! I got to meet Julian at Bookcon, and he was delightful, and I hope you guys enjoy the interview. And don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end!!!

A beautiful summer romance || What If It's Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli

Title : What If It's Us
Author : Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli
Publisher : Harper Teen
Release Date : October 9th 2018
Synopsis :

Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.

Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.

But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?

Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.

Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.

But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?

What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?

What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?

But what if it is?
