It’s time for my monthly Wrap Up and TBR post! (I am determined to make this a thing)
The aim of this reading game is to help me read more books and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile. The more books I read, the more books I can buy. The more books I can buy, the more books I can read. It’s a win-win, right?
WARNING: this book will cause shortness of breath and heart palpitations. Today I am sharing with you my thoughts on Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough.

I enjoy reading monthly Wrap Up and TBR posts (as well as watching them on YouTube) and you know me, I couldn’t resist writing my own. I hope writing this type of post on a regular basis will help to read more and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile. The more books I read, the more books I can buy. The more books I can buy, the more books I can read. It’s a win-win, right?
Don’t look at me like that.Yes, I know that I am supposed to be on a book buying ban, but after a hectic and stressful period at work, I needed a treat in the form of a book (or two). Sit down, grab a drink, and let me tell you about the books that have entered my life recently.
January seemed to be about 5 years long, yet February flew by in a blink of an eye. Did I actually do anything in February? March is here, with a lot of exciting books coming our way. One of them is The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven.
The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
Publication Date: 8th March 2018
Publisher: Electric Monkey Genre: YA
Format: Paperback,337 pages Synopsis: Izzy O’Neill here! Impoverished orphan, aspiring comedian and Slut Extraordinaire, if the gossip sites are anything to go by… Izzy never expected to be eighteen and internationally reviled. But when explicit photos involving her, a politician’s son and a garden bench are published online, the trolls set out to take her apart. Armed with best friend Ajita and a metric ton of nachos, she tries to laugh it off – but as the daily slut-shaming intensifies, she soon learns the way the world treats teenage girls is not okay. It’s the Exact Opposite of Okay.
Fun fact: it’s taken me so long to write this blog post two of the books I originally planned to feature have already been published. Oops.
As there are so many amazing books being published in 2018, I thought I would create a new series on my blog to regularly share the books I’m looking forward to. The idea behind this series is to make sure I don’t miss out on a book I’m excited for, as well as (hopefully!) put a new book on to your radar too.
