BOUGHT



Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater
This is the second in the Books of Faerie series, the first one is called Lament. I'm really looking forward to this, I can't wait, the first one was awesome!

Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon
I don't really know what this one is about, the blurb is kind of vague... But I've heard awesome things about it so I'm hoping it's good!

Bloody Valentine by Melissa de la Cruz
I've already read this, and... meh. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing either. The actual books in the series are a lot better. 

Die For Me by Amy Plum
I've also already read this one, but I read it on NetGalley so I wanted a print, shiny paper copy :)

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
I wanted this way back in January when it first came out, but then when I saw it was coming out in the UK with this gorgeous cover, I had to wait :) It's SO PRETTY! 

FOR REVIEW

It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han (Thanks Penguin!)
This was my first ever book for review from the publishers! :) It was really good, I loved it, can't wait for the next one, though I'm pretty sure the wait will kill me before next year...

Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton (Thanks Random House!)
I'm really excited for this one, it looks amazing, and it's a 2011 debut, which is always nice. Don't really know much about it, apart from 'it's awesome!'

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (Thanks MacMillan!)
I'm reading this one now, only on page 50 or so, but it's really good. It's also loosely based around Greek mythology, so that should mean that it's awesome, which so far, it is. :)

BORROWED/GIFTED

Where She Went by Gayle Forman
I borrowed this from my school friend, loved the first book, can't wait to read this one :)

Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender (Thanks to Jill from 30 Nights Insomniac!)
This was my first RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) and it was such a nice surprise! To find out more about RAK go here.


Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (Thanks to Mia from Gripping Books!)
Really excited for this one, I've heard nothing but good things about it :) Got the ebook copy which is why it's not pictured, but that's fine, it's on my Kindle! :)


Nevermore by Kelly Creagh (Thanks again to Mia from Gripping Books!)
Again, only heard good things about this one too! :) Same as above, it's on my Kindle so it's not pictured... It looks amazing! :D

  9. I so loved Die For Me. I think it's my fav paranormal since Twilight! I just bought my mother Anna and the FK for mother's day - that means I get a copy when she's done :-) I already read it, but don't own a copy.

#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 …

Book Review: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index by Julie Israel

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 …
