Book Blogger Hop #13 and Follow Friday #8

Have you all had a good week? Mine's been OK, just getting back into the routine of school... Fun. Anyway, here's my Blog Hop and Follow Friday =]

Book Blogger Hop

Why do you read the genre you read? What draws you to it? 

My answer: I read YA Paranormal mostly, and I'm not sure why... I guess, it's just that I like getting lost in a world that would never happen, and I especially love finding out about all of the weird and wonderful creatures authors have come up with. I also like reading about things that would never happen to me, because people fascinate me. I'm not really sure... this is a hard question! Do you sort of understand what I mean? I like that when I'm reading I'll have no idea what's going to happen, and it keeps me reading into the night because I need to know what happens, and I think a lot of YA paranormal books have that suspense... And of course, there are all the love interests... But we won't go there :L 


What makes up your non-human family?

My answer: I don't really have a non-human family... I used to have a rabbit called Snuggles, and I loved him, but he sadly died last summer while I was on holiday, which was awful, and I suppose he was part of my non-human, but I don't really have one anymore. We have a pet hermit crab, but that's not really family. It's called Onken Crabbie, and it justs sits in its tank all day... Weird, I know. :L

**I have an idea about a new meme, possibly called Sample Saturday. Head over here to read more and fill in the form to tell me your thoughts. Thanks!

  2. Ohh that's so sad. I'm sorry to hear that. Even though I am not the ultimate dog lover, I was still upset when we had to put our 2 older dogs down. It's hard losing a pet.

    Here's my Hop and Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  7. Here I am hopping on by...

    I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

    So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.

  13. Thanks for checking out and following my blog. Turns out I've been a follower of your blog for some time now. Keep up the good work. Plus I do agree that the Blog Hop's question for the week was a tough one to answer. I think all readers just read what ever they like.

  16. I have eight hermit crabs, so I can relate on the weirdness/boredom to the extreme factor. :P

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017
Source: For review from publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
