I thought I would share a little post with you about what music means to me, and some of my favourite artists and songs! Music is a central and very important aspect of this book so I thought it would be a nice theme to choose for this post.
I am so excited to be bringing this post to you today, and it is definitely an exciting one! I had the opportunity to read Rayne and Delilah's Midnite Matinee early (thank you to Andersen Press) and so today I have a review for you (more on that later), but even more excitingly I have a guest post from the author, Jeff Zentner!
This was such a fun debut fantasy novel, and I am so glad I got to read it early and now share it with all of you! I was amazed at how this book didn't read like a debut at all, and I am very excited to see what else P.M. Freestone releases in the future, both as a continuation of this series and beyond.
So January was definitely not the most successful reading month for me! I got into a massive slump at the beginning of the month where I picked up and then put down about 4 books before finding anything I wanted to stick with!

Firstly, I feel I need to say that this book has such an interesting and innovative concept, but it does require suspending your belief throughout reading this book!

This hasn't been my most successful reading month sadly as I have been so busy with university deadlines and all sorts of other things such as rehearsals and dance competitions across the country! So as you can see, reading hasn't exactly been my top priority this month! I finished a total of 5 books this month, and am in the middle of 2 others!
I really enjoyed this book, it was fun and quick to read but did also get into some interesting issues. This was the exact sort of book I needed at this time, something that was easy to get into and kept me captivated throughout! It wasn't a perfect book but it definitely did its job of being a charming contemporary read that really explored the characters and their situations.
This book was an interesting reading experience. I was so excited to read this, it sounded fascinating and original and exactly like the kind of book I should love but something about it just didn't work for me. I think the story was still quite interesting, although not what I had hoped, but the main downfall was in the execution of this novel.
