where our team of writers love to talk all things books, sharing reviews, features, lists, interviews and more.

Getting lost in a book is escapism at it's finest and it's what everyone who contributes here thrives on.


Group Collaboration | Fictional Playlists

If you're a regular reader of BB you may have noticed that at the end of each of her reviews Ria shares a playlist to accompany the book. The rest of us love this idea so for this month's group post we thought we would have a go at creating some of our own! Here are the results...
