FOR REVIEW






Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (US Hardback)
I'm really excited to read this, but it is SO creepy looking! Thanks to Quirk Books for this one!


Everlasting by Alyson Noel (UK Paperback)
I probably won't read this one, because I haven't read any of the first five books in the Evermore series and I've heard that they're not very good, and besides, I don't have any time to read them, so I might be putting this one up on ReadItSwapIt :) If you want to swap, let me know (UK)! Thanks to MacMillan anyway!


Forbidden by Jana Oliver (UK Paperback)
YAY!! I ADORED the first book in this series, Forsaken, so I can't wait to read this one! I'm interested to see where the story will take me! :) Thanks to MacMillan for this one too!


Delirium by Lauren Oliver (New UK Paperback)
I read this back in April, but it turned up on my doorstep on Saturday, and it's the new UK paperback version. I have to say, I don't like the cover much but the book itself is AWESOME so I don't mind too much and it's nice to have my own copy! Thanks to Hodder for this!


The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4)


The Iron Knight by Julia Kagawa (e-Galley) *GIANT SQUEE AND HAPPY DANCE*
Oh my word, I was SO HAPPY when I got the email saying I'd been accepted for this! :D I CANNOT WAIT TO READ IT. The Iron Fey is one of my favourite series EVER so I'm so looking forward to reading this! Thanks SO MUCH to NetGalley and HarlequinTeen for giving me access to this one! :D

The Elder Wand from The Noble Collection (From Elle at The Book Memoirs) *SQUEE*
This is AMAZING. I won this in The Book Memoir's Harry Potter week, and I couldn't believe it! It's a full size wooden replica, and it's so pretty! It's in a beautiful box too - so a HUGE THANK YOU to Elle for this! :D 


Blood Red Road by Moira Young postcard
This was sent to me by Vicki from ComaCalm's Corner, so thank you Vicki! :D It's super pretty :)

  1. Great haul this week! That Delirium cover is interesting. (As in why did they have to change it. It was beautiful!)

  2. So many great books! I'm still waiting on The Iron Knight, but I'm so excited for it! It's meant to be awesome. I also really want to read Delirium, and Forbidden because I loved the first one too! Everlasting has a nice cover - I've read the first book in the series and thought it was okay but never got to read the rest unfortunately. Happy reading :).

#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

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 …
