BOUGHT




Paranormalcy by Kiersten White (Hardback)
I adore this book. It is definitely one of my favourite books. EVER. So of course, I had to have the hardback copy :) I bought it from America and everything :) 


FOR REVIEW






Rockaholic by CJ Skuse (Paperback)
Really excited for this one, it looks really fun and interesting :) And apparently it's hilarious, so thanks to Chicken House for this one!


Reckless by Cornelia Funke (Paperback)
This one also looks really good, I LOVE Cornelia Funke, she was my favourite author when I was younger, but I haven't read anything by her for ages, so I'm really looking forward to this one! Thanks again to Chicken House for this one!


The Truth About Celia Frost by Celia Rawsthorne (ARC)
This one sounds really interesting, and I'm really excited for it :) Thanks to Usborne for this one!


GIFTED



Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton (RAK from Sara at Just Another Story)
Would like to say a HUGE thank you to Sara for sending me this one, and Two Way Street (below)! I wasn't expecting her to send me TWO awesome books, one of which is a hardback, so thank you so much! This one looks awesome, and I can't wait to start it! <3


Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt (RAK from Sara at Just Another Story)
Again, thanks Sara! This one looks really good, and apparently it's really funny. I'm going on a long car journey soon so this one seems perfect for that! :L Thanks again Sara!

#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 …
