#ReadWithMe 2020 #17

Hello again! Another week, another home school and – thankfully – more books!

I managed to finish Boy Queen this week – easily in fact as it was SO good. I’ve reviewed it if you’d like to take a look, but to summarise, it’s yet another fantastic YA book that doesn’t shy away from presenting the world as it is. I made the point in the review that when I was younger, there were not really any books that let you know that other people were having the same problems and thoughts as you, and no internet either. It’s great to see that current YA authors are confident in presenting what some would call alternative lifestyles in a no-nonsense way. More of this please!

I’m still working away on What If? and Bossypants, but have also started reading The Secret Lives of the Codebreakers – which is an account of what it was like to live and work at Bletchley Park during WW2, using first-hand accounts from Bletchley veterans. This is a Netgalley book I requested some time ago now, and it’s part of my effort to clear out some of the backlog there!

So that’s it in bookish news this week – I’ve a blog tour going live on 4th May, but nothing else now until June so no excuse not to read. read, read and review, review, review.

Hope everyone is looking forward to a good week – in positive news for today, I went to big Asda earlier and in a bit of rare perfect timing, managed to walk straight in – hooray!

  1. The Secret Lives of the Codebreakers sounds like a really interesting book!
    It’s great that YA authors are writing about so many different lifestyles these days, it must really help teenagers to feel ‘normal’. I genuinely don’t think YA books existed when I was a teenager (I’m 46)!
