Soooo… The Reading Rush has ended and those of you who follow me on Instagram will probably have seen all my stories. Long story short, The Reading Rush was a massive success for me! I switched one book on my TBR, but did manage to read seven books and complete all seven challenges!
It’s that time of year again! The Reading Rush is a readathon happening from July 20 – July 26 and it’s the perfect excuse to do nothing else but read for a full week. The last time I participated in this readathon it was still called the booktube-a-thon, yes I’m old. And lately I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump with everything that’s going on in the world right now… So I’m hoping this week of reading will get me back into the swing of things.
For the last couple of months, I have been a part of a super cool team of YA readers all surrounding this novel. So now, I am lucky enough to participate in this blog tour. At the end of this review, you can read more about this blog tour and where you can find information about the competition surrounding the release of this book.

I had been eyeing this book ever since I saw the trailer of the movie (starring Fionn Whitehead, I am so ready!). So when I stumbled upon it for the umpteenth time while in a bookshop this weekend I decided to treat myself and get a copy. Two days later I finished reading the novel and while writing this review, I am still not sure how I feel about this book.

This week I have been completely engrossed in this story, I just finished reading it and I really want to tell you about it. The book I am talking about is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. This book follows our main character Kathy H. A now thirty-one-year-old woman who recollects memories from her youth spent at Hailsham, a boarding school somewhere in England. This book jumps through time as it shows the course of Kathy’s life up until her present day.
