Three Hallows Book Club August Post: 5 Reasons To Read The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie

So this month, the book that we all have been reading The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie. Instead of doing a full book review, here are five reasons why you should read the book...

Number 5: Great For The Summer

Even though summer is on its way out, The Paper & Hearts Society is perfect for this time of year with the summery plotline based around road trips. If not I can still picture myself curling around the fire wishing that I could reread the book again. 

Number 4: It's funny

The book tackles some really hard-hitting issues such as toxic friendships and bullying which I definitely did not expect when I first read heard about it about, but it handles the issues really well. I feel like to counter this, Lucy does incorporate some humour into the book. At YALC, she said that it was writing what she thought was funny in the book and it definitely paid off as I found myself laughing throughout.

Number 3: The Characters

So there are a lot of characters in TPAHS and all of them are great, except you know the one that you are not meant to like. From Tabby to Ed to Cassie to Olivia to Henry, all of the characters are so lovable and I can't wait to read more about them in the sequel. Weird opinion but I o just really love Ed.

Number 2: Road Trip!

So like a lot of bookish people I love a good road trip book but TPAHS takes it a little bit further as it is a bookish road trip. I loved seeing the different location especially Bath as I had been there the year before but I loved reading all of the locations. It was just great!

Number 1: A Book about books

As well as a good road trip book, I love a good bookish book and this is what TPAHS is. From all of the different references from Angus, Thongs to Nimona to a mention of Alice Oseman, I was just so in love with all of the references and I would have dreamed of a book like this when I was a teenager and am still happy it exists today!

Here is a summary of the book...

The Paper & Hearts Society (The Paper & Hearts Society #1)

A brand new series from Booktuber Lucy Powrie - about what happens when you give up on trying to fit in and let your weird out! It's time to join The Paper & Hearts Society ... 

Tabby Brown is tired of trying to fit in. She doesn't want to go to parties - in fact, she would much rather snuggle up on the sofa with her favourite book.

It's like she hasn't found her people ...

Then Tabby joins a club that promises to celebrate books. What could go wrong? EVERYTHING - especially when making new friends brings out an AWKWARD BUZZING feeling all over her body.

But Olivia, Cassie, Henry and Ed have something that makes Tabby come back. Maybe it's the Austen-themed fancy-dress parties or Ed's fluffy cat Mrs Simpkins, or could it be Henry himself ...

Can Tabby let her weird out AND live THE BEST BOOKISH LIFE POSSIBLE?

Perfect for fans of Holly Smale and Super Awkward.

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
