REVIEW: Clean by Juno Dawson

Hello all! Hope you're all enjoying the summer so far! My proof copy of Clean in all its shiny glory Today I have a review of a super gritty and powerful read from Juno Dawson that I highly recommend. Title:  Clean Author: Juno Dawson Series: n/a Pages: 400 Publisher: Quercus Books Date of Publication: 5th April, 2018 Source: proof received from book club Synopsis from Goodreads: I can feel it swimming through my veins like glitter ... it's liquid gold. When socialite Lexi Volkov almost overdoses, she thinks she's hit rock bottom. She's wrong. Rock bottom is when she's forced into an exclusive rehab facility. From there, the only way is up for Lexi and her fellow inmates, including the mysterious Brady. As she faces her demons, Lexi realises love is the most powerful drug of all ... It's a dirty business getting clean ... My Thoughts: I haven't read a book by Juno Dawson since Say Her Name which was published in 2014

YALC 2018 Challenge!

Hello! YALC 2018 is coming up this month - who's excited?! I sure am! To celebrate (and also to prepare because I am very organised and like to be prepared) I am setting myself my own little YALC challenge. It's very simple and you can join in too! It's easy: read as many books by YALC authors as you can before Friday 27th July, ie, Day One of YALC.  If you don't know, YALC is the Young Adult Literature Convention which happens at LFCC in London. It's the fifth year this year, and it's always great fun so I can't wait. I like to have read as many books of the authors who attend every year and so that's how this challenge was born. Read on for a list of what I'm gonna try to read before the weekend! In no particular order (because I literally never stick to it): 1. All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehforth - This is published on 19th July and I'm half-way through now and really enjoying it! It's very intriguing,
