Amazon Waterstones Foyles a note from the author I began writing The Kissing Booth when I was 15 years old, uploading it one chapter at a time to story-sharing platform Wattpad - it accumulated over 19 million reads before I was offered a 3-book publishing deal at age 17. This story and these characters have meant so much to me. They were a huge part of my life for ten years, and it's been thrilling to see them adapted for Netflix. If you'd like to find out more about that, make sure to check out my blog posts in The Archive. And, in case you were going to ask... No, there won't be a Kissing Booth 4. thanks for all the love, Beth

Perfect for fans of THE FLATSHARE, OUR STOP and LOVE ACTUALLY Amazon Waterstones Foyles Audible Lockdown on London Lane Lockdown on London Lane is the US title for LOVE, LOCKED DOWN. Amazon US Barnes & Noble Indie Bound Target what people are saying... a note from the author This story originally started out as a series of five short stories I uploaded to story-sharing platform Wattpad in April 2020, right at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and the first lockdown. You can read the original (and much shorter) first draft of the book on Wattpad here. Despite the inspiration of lockdown, it's a plot device rather than a morbid, looming presence in the book. This story is a fun, lighthearted rom-com - the sort of thing I very much needed at the time, and hopefully you will still enjoy now! ever a fan of banana bread, Beth

Amazon Waterstones The Book Depository a note from the author I've always been a regular Buddy the Elf when it comes to Christmas - and for the first few years after moving away from home until becoming a full-time author, I always ended up using the holidays to catch up on working on my books, so there's a little of me in both Cara and Eloise.

Perfect for curling up with a hot chocolate in front of the Christmas tree in the wintertime! may all your books be merry and bright, Beth

Amazon Kindle a note from the author A short story published for the Welsh government's Quick Reads scheme, which encourages adult literacy, Cwtch Me If You Can was my first branch out of YA and into New Adult, with characters at university. And my first book set back in my own stomping ground of Wales, rather than across the pond like my YA novels. And if you were wondering about the title - it was a throwaway joke that stuck, and I love it. always here for a good pun, Beth

  • Out Of Tune | Beth Reekles

    Out of Tune Out of Tune Ashley Bennett is a straight-A student in her junior year of high school, and life is looking good: she's got a boyfriend whom she loves, a group of friends who love to party... But really, Ashley loves to curl up at home with a good book, misses her old friends, and she can't wait to go to college. When junior year starts, the life Ashley's settled into is turned upside down - the empty house next door has finally been sold, and moving in is Todd O'Connor. When Ashley first meets Todd, he seems aloof and cocky - and absolutely the last guy on earth she wants to carpool with to school. As the two get to know each other, though, Ashley comes to realise that there's more to him than the mysterious, brooding guy the girls at school are swooning over. As her friendship with Todd grows, Ashley begins to question if her relationship with boyfriend Josh is making her happy - and if it was really worth giving up her old friends for. Will Ashley find the courage to forge her own path? Amazon Waterstones Audible The Book Depository Striking a chord The prequel novella to OUT OF TUNE, exclusively on Wattpad! Ashley Bennett is a nobody at high school, and it totally sucks. So when Josh, the cute guy she sits next to in English, asks her on a date, she can hardly believe it - and she's totally over the moon! She and her best friend, Allie, have been waiting for an opportunity to move up the social foodchain, and this may just be their chance - but as Ashley and Josh grow closer, she starts to think her best friend isn't as happy about it as she should be. Can their friendship withstand it? Read for free on Wattpad a note from the author Out of Tune is my third published novel - but the first that made it to bookshelves without being posted on story-sharing platform Wattpad first, which was a weirdly terrifying experience for me at the time. A special shout-out to my mum here, too, for coming up with this book's title! While there's a romance storyline, this one also focuses a lot on one of my other favourite themes to write about: friendships. The old, the new, and the unexpected. forever actually singing out of tune, Beth

Running from her past and stumbling through the present, who knows what lies ahead in this new life in Florida? Amazon Waterstones The Book Depository a note from the author Rolling Dice was my second novel, written when I was 16 as part of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) shortly after I finished the first draft of The Kissing Booth. After originally sharing to online story-sharing platform Wattpad, it was published in 2013 by Penguin Random House. In Rolling Dice, Madison gets everything she dreamed of - only to find out that being popular isn't all it's cracked up to be, and maybe there's a little more to life than just being 'cool'. sincerely, someone who gave up being 'cool' in high school, Beth
