Book review - Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman

Malorie Blackman is an extremely well-known and prolific writer of children’s books, but this is the first of her YA novels that I have read. It follows Dante, a 17-year-old boy whose life is turned upside-down when an ex-girlfriend turns up with an 11-month-old baby girl – which she claims is Dante’s. 162 more words

I Meet Malorie Blackman & Patrick Ness

At the beginning of February, I attended my first book event: the book launch for Malorie Blackman’s romance anthology, Love Hurts. It was an amazing experience to hear actual published authors and I’m definitely hoping to attend an event like it again (it helps that it only cost like £5 a ticket.) Read on for my adventures, though don’t take them as an actual exact account because I’m writing from memory and not a recording or anything. 1,189 more words
