The Sky is Everywhere-Jandy Nelson: Book Review!

Hi Guys,

Today is the 7th part of my 'Zoella Book Club' review series. This is the penultimate part! I am sure you are all familiar with the format of these posts (if not catch up with every installment at the top!) so I'll just get started!


As always, I will try to keep spoilers to a minimum!



'The Sky is Everywhere' follows 16 year old Lennie. Her sister- Bailey- has recently passed away, shaking up Lennie's life completely. The sisters' mother is a 'wander' who abandoned the girls as a baby; it is Gram and Big who have to cope with a grief stricken Lennie. Somewhere in the mourning, boys come into the mix! Between Toby, Bailey's fiance, and Joe, new boy in town, Lennie starts to wonder if the end of Bailey's life was the start of her own!  

I thought that the plot of this book was amazing. The way it was intertwined with poetry gave it such a literary feel! As you probably know, I'm not a big fan of sad books so going into this I didn't hold out much hope; I loved it! Even though, death was mentioned, I din't feel like it was one of the centeral themes of book. Saying that, I felt it was dealt with so sensitively that it made the 'The Sky is Everywhere' even more endearing!

Another thing that added to the enjoyability of this book was all of the characters! Even the smaller characters had an unbelievable amount of layers. I fell in love with Big. I know he isn't the best of guys, but what a cutie! Can we also just address Joe? He has to be my favourite love interest from any of these books! I know that here was the whole, will-they-won't-they with Toby but I was always team Joe!

I really don't have a bad thing to say about this book. Looking back as I write this, I'm just remembering how much I loved it. If you haven't picked up a copy please check it out! As always, feel free to add me to your circles! I have two days to reach 125 followers so I am running a competition!

Thanks for reading,

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

Bags:
VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
