My Favourite LGBT+ YA Books

Hello! For as long as I remember I've love reading, and this year I've really tried to make more time for books. Until recently though I was yet to find any LGBT+ themed books that I really enjoyed. I remember reading and enjoying Kiss by Jaqueline Wilson at a very young age, but looking back on it I don't think it was very good representation and I think if I reread it now I'd be frustrated with it. However, I've managed to read a fair few LGBT+ books this year that I have enjoyed, all of them YA, so I thought I'd share a couple of them with you!

Bath and Body Works Autumn Wishlist

Even though I've never actually stepped foot in one of their stores, I have a lot of love for Bath and Body Works. Actually, apart from using a friend's hand sanitiser once, I haven't even used any of their products. Nevertheless I absolutely love this brand, from the beautiful packaging to the delicious sounding product names and everything in between.

REVIEW: All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Hey! So something that I'm really into but haven't featured on my blog yet is reading. I have so many books that I love and want to share my opinions on but for some reason haven't yet, so I thought it would be best to start with my favourite which is All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. I haven't actually written a proper book review before so I hope this is okay and you take something from it!


London is my favourite city. By far the most infuriating, but nevertheless my favourite. Every time I visit I return back to my little and crappy northern town feeling overcome with creativity and inspiration and the urge to just do something, anything, to get me out of here and back to the place I love. It makes me want to be productive and it makes me want to create things. In all honesty, I don't understand it. I often struggle with a lack of inspiration and a horrible tendency to procrastinate (take one look at the dates on my blog posts and you'll see exactly what I mean) so I can't quite put my finger on why something as simple as a change of location can provoke such a change in me.

I returned from London almost a week ago now and the little spark of inspiration in my brain is still burning away so I thought whilst it's still there I may as well make use of it in the little corner of the internet that I love the most.
