Armchair BEA: Introduction to Cheezyfeet Books


Hey everyone, are you here for Armchair BEA? :)

If you are, welcome to Cheezyfeet Books! My name is Bella, I'm 14, and I'm from the UK :) I wish I could go to BEA, but with school and BEA being in America, there was no chance :( Anyone else missing BEA in the UK? Let me know in the comments, and I'll be sure to go check out your blog! Or tweet me: @CheezyfeetBooks

My preferred genres are, if you couldn't already tell, YA! :D I love anything YA, whether it's paranormal, contemporary, historical, sci-fi, whatever, I don't care :D Paranormal and Dystopian are my favourite though :) What about you?

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1)  Divergent  Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)

Some of my favourite books are Paranormalcy by Kiersten White and Divergent by Veronica Roth, though I don't think either of those authors will be at BEA... I also love Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series, and I've included a little about her new book Bloodlines below :)

What am I excited about for BEA this year? Well, of course I'm looking forward to all the awesome books that we'll be hearing about in the next week or so, and I'm really looking forward to all the reviews of the books that the lucky people actually going to BEA will get to read and review :) I'm also looking forward to getting to know other bloggers more, either via the Twitter parties that are being organised this week, or by the blogger interviews on Wednesday (especially excited for these, it's just a shame that I'm not taking part :( Oh well!)

What do I hope will happen this week? Mostly, I want to make some new blogger friends! I love chatting to people about books online, it's so easy and there's not really anyone IRL that I can talk to apart from 1 or 2 school friends, and my parents, who, while they are interested, aren't quite interested enough ;) So I'm hoping to make some new friends, and to find some more awesome blogs!

Some mock inteview style questions about me:

What's your favouite TV programme?
Right now I have 3: Gossip Girl, 90210 and The Vampire Diaries :)

What are you listening to right now?
A playlist of P!nk, Taylor Swift, MIKA, KT Tunstall and Selena Gomez :)

Favourite food?
Well, duh, but I love chocolate :D

One book everyone should read?
Ooh... There are so many! But I'll choose one that I didn't mention above, The Iron King by Julie Kagawa it's my favourite faery book ever :)

Do you have any other hobbies besides from reading?
Well, most of my time is taken up by reading/blogging, but when I'm not, I play flute and piano :)

Any guilty pleasures?
I'm addicted to CityVille :) I've said this more than once, but seriously, I cannot stop.

A few of the many books that I'm most excited to here about this week:

The Scorpio RacesThe Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater - This one looks so amazing! Anything by Maggie is awesome, and I'm sure this one will be no exception :) It doesn't even have a synopsis yet, but the cover is so pretty... :)

Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1)Bloodlines by Richelle Mead - So jealous of everyone who gets a copy of this! The autographing session looks amazing, I cannot wait for this book, the Moroi and Strigoi world is one of my favourites :D This one is about Sydney protecting Jill Dragomir in a human school, so it'll be interesting to see how this one plays out when the book isn't set in a world that knows about vampires.

The Carrier of the MarkThe Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon - Again, so jealous of everyone who gets a copy of this :) If anyone at BEA sees this post, maybe bring me back a copy of these titles? I would seriously love you forever. :D No really, this book looks awesome and the cover is gorgeous, I can't wait to read it! :)

And those are all the books I'll post today, I'll post some more tomorrow :) Leave a link to your Armchair BEA introductory post in the comments, and I'll be sure to come visit you sometime this week! :D

Thanks for reading my post, and leave a comment below to introduce yourself! :) Don't be shy, I don't bite! Also, remember to visit Armchair BEA to visit the almost 400 blogs taking part :) And lastly, have an awesome Armchair BEA!

  2. Has anyone ever told you that you have excellent taste? I LOVE The Vampire Diaries! And Divergent is honestly one of THE best books I have read this year. So flipping amazing! I'm also a huge fan of the Vampire Academy series. I'm writhing in jealousy at everyone who manages to score a copy of Bloodlines at BEA! I'm going to be stalking their blogs waiting for a review to posted haha.

    Nice to meet your British awesomeness! My introductory post is here

  3. Dropping by to say hi! Thanks for leaving a comment in my ArmchairBEA post, just wanted to mention that my books aren't always arranged by color. I just did that for the photos. :P

    I have a feeling you aren't the only blogger in the UK who can't make it to BEA. Aren't there a lot of bloggers in the UK? I hope you get to find someone who lives near you and that you'll be able to meet in person.

  4. We have a lot in common!

    Now I know why you haven't heard of Pop-Tarts! They're a US thing! I should ship you some, I wonder what it would cost to ship food? Customs is funny about that stuff. There's a site on pop-tarts, LOL, check it out. I like traditional old ones.

  9. I feel like BEA is far from me and I live in the U.S. I'm sure it is much harder for you to fly over.

#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 …

Title: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index Author: Julie Israel
Series:  n/a
Pages:  308
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 …
