Book Blogger Hop

If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till? 

My answer: This is such a cool question... And I wish it was real :L I would buy: 

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Bloody Valentine by Melissa de la Cruz
Raising Demons by Rachel Hawkins
The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker
Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)     Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)     Bloody Valentine: A Blue Bloods Novella     Raising Demons (Hex Hall, #2)     The Liar Society (The Liar Society, #1)     Bad Girls Don't Die (Bad Girls Don't Die, #1)     The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)     Will Grayson, Will Grayson


Who are You the Boy/Girl, instead of You the Blogger? 

My answer: It took me a while to work out what this question meant... I think I know now :L I'm Bella the Girl. I am 14 and I live in the UK. I play flute and piano, and I watch Gossip Girl, 90210 and The Vampire Diaries. I am a massive fan of P!nk, she is my favourite singer of all time, and I know all the lyrics to all of her songs... :D My main hobby is reading, though I life crafts too, especially Aranzi Aronzo who has written books about how to make all sorts of cute felt toys. =] And lastly, I have an obsession with shoes, and I just got my first pair of heels! :D :D :D 


  1. None of these are on my list but I would definitely buy Unearthly and Bloody Valentine :)

  2. Hey, Old follower just hopping by! I just got my first pair of heels too but I'm 21! Oh dear =/ Great list of books, I'd want most of them! Never heard of bad girls don't die but the cover is beautiful, will have to check it out! I love David Levithan books too, Boy Meets Boy is my favourite.

  3. Happy Weekend! Hopping by to say hey and see what you had to say for the Friday hops!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower
    Jess@a GREAT read

  4. Cool choices of books! I love all of them!

    And I actually recently learned how to play Pink's song Perfect on the guitar :) That song is good!!

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  5. Getting your first pair of heels is always exciting! I remember getting mine. I was fifteen or sixteen. Now, that I'm in my 30s, I hate them, lol. But, I do love shoes too. :)

  6. Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

    The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

    Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

    Happy Hop Friday!

  7. Hopping through. I love Gossip Girl too. Congrats on the heels. I'm horrible about wearing heels. I always think I'm going to trip, because I don't wear them enough to be used to them.
    My Hop

  8. Hey!
    Stopping by for the Book Blogger Hop. I'm a bit late, but I couldn't miss the opportunity to add new books to my TBR list.:D

    I'd buy Unearthly by Cynthia Hand, Across the Universe by Beth Revis, Bloody Valentine by Melissa de la Cruz and Raising Demons by Rachel Hawkins too. As of the other books, I'll add them to my TBR list now.

    Have a nice Sunday!

#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 …

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 …
