Marilyn and Me - Ji-min Lee I picked this on a complete whim. In fact, the only reason it appealed to me was because I am interested in Marilyn Monroe's life and because I have read absolutely nothing that is based in Korea, let alone anything that features the Korean War which is a conflict… Continue reading Marilyn and Me
Izzy & Tristan - Shannon Dunlap This isn't a novel, it's a romance. This book was first brought to my attention because of the publisher tweeting about everyone getting their proof copies and I had that FOMO feeling that you get sometimes when you watch other people having a good time.

I did manage to read Emily Bronte's Wuthering… Continue reading The two times I failed to read Jane Eyre and the one time I succeeded
Dear Evan Hansen - Val Emmich, Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul If you're a fan of musicals like I am, you'll know all about Dear Evan Hansen. Being based in the UK, I am desperately waiting for the show to come to the West End so I can finally see all the songs… Continue reading Dear Evan Hansen
