BOUGHT


Divergent  Bite Club: The Morganville Vampires  The Adoration of Jenna Fox

Divergent by Veronica Roth
It was a complete surprise when I got this in the mail, it's not meant to be out until May 3rd so when I got it early from Amazon, I was extremely excited! Read it in two days, it's awesome! It is so good, you really have to read it!

Bite Club by Rachel Caine
Again, I was surprised when this came because it's also not meant to be out until May 3rd... Amazon have been sending things out early! Oh well, I'm not complaining :) I'll be reading this as soon as I finish The Girl in the Steel Corset, can't wait, The Morganville Vampires series is one of my favourites and this is book 10! :)


The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E Pearson
I bought this one because it was £0.89 for Kindle, and I've heard good things about it :) Can't wait to read it, especially as it's dystopian!


FOR REVIEW


The Day Before  Spellbound


The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder
I'm really excited for this one, as it's written like poems, and I love Ellen Hopkins' books which are also written like that, so I hope this is too! Thanks to Simon and Schuster Galley Grab for this! 


Spellbound by Cara Lynn Schultz
I'm so excited for this one, it looks amazing, and that cover is gorgeous! Thanks to NetGalley for this one :)

  21. Oooh, I've been wanting to read Divergent, so I can't wait to see what you think of that.

    The Adoration of Jenna Fox is very good so far, I really need to finish it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ooooh 'Divergent' ... I'm not sure how but I'm holding off on reading it for now. I have one more book I want to read and then it is all mine. I'm definitely super excited for it since everyone says it's so good.

    'The Adoration of Jenna Fox' is definitely an interesting book. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So jealous of Spellbound! I'm halfway through with Divergent and am loving every second. My friend just read The Adoration and enjoyed it very much. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I got SPELLBOUND as well! And yet, you are another blogger who happens to have DIVERGENT. And now I'm craving to have it. Please enjoy it, for the both of us and for fellow bloggers who are in the same predicament as I am everywhere...

    I really liked THE ADORATION OF JENNA FOX, broke out the Kleenex and everything. I hope you like it too! And I have to find out what all the hype is surrounding the Morganville vampire series. They really that good?

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by the blog yesterday! And enjoy!

  25. Spellbound looks AMAZING :). I want to get it!/will probably be reading your review.

    And you're so lucky Amazon shipped Divergent early! I think mine's coming tomorrow, but I've heard such great things and want to read it now :D. Amazon is awesome when it does that. It happened with me and The Vespertine, and what can I say? An unexpected package in the mail can really brighten our days :).

    Also, I'm not sure I like the UK cover of the Adoration of Jenna Fox. The US one, or at least the one I've seen the most often, seems a lot more intriguing than this eye-focused one. Have you seen the other one? What do you think of it?

    Looks like you've got an awesome week ahead of you! Happy reading!!

Only she can find and decrypt it, if she can unravel the clues he left for her. The closer she gets, the more she finds herself at risk from Cartaxus, a shadowy organization with a stranglehold on the world's genetic…

#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 …
