In My Mailbox #22

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren. I couldn't do an IMM last week because I had NO books or post or anything to show you! :( But this week, I have had a little bit of post so I can do an IMM, yay!

FOR REVIEW






Bumped by Megan McCafferty (UK Paperback)
Not really sure about this one, the subject is more than a little weird for me, though I am looking forward to reading it :) I think it will be interesting, and it's received mixed reviews so I'm going to read it and decide for myself what I thought :) Thank you Random House!


I also got a couple of postcards, that arrived in mysterious black envelopes. I had no idea what they were going to be before I opened them, but they are pretty cool :) I guess you could call them...







Two blank postcards with a moustache and a tooth on them. (I have no other way to describe them!)
These are (I'm pretty sure) promo for Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. They have the web site for DOSAB on so that's what I'm assuming they're for! It's very exciting! 


What did you all get in your mailboxes this week? Did you get more than I did, or did you get the postcards too? :) Leave a link to you mailbox in the comments and I'll be sure to come and check them out! Happy reading!

  7. I love the cover of this book so much!:D
    But I've read and watched a lot of mixed reviews about it, even though the concept of it sounds great.
    A world where teenagers have to have babies, for the adults who can't have them?
    CRAZY!

#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

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 …
